SPRING VALLEY INTERIM HEAD COACH MIKE ARMSTRONG
"Kyle is an outstanding young man, on and off the field. He is unlike a lot of linemen in the fact that he just loves practice, hustles from one drill to another, and has a ball out there really competing every down."
"I've also watched Kyle mature as a football player and step forward as a leader on our team. He was one of those guys everybody looks to in the huddle."
"Kyle has tremendous upside. He has monster hands and reach, and can move for a guy that size. He's just a natural at tackle. Coach Johnson and Vanderbilt have signed quite a football player in Kyle."
