Kenny Session, a 5-foot-9, 195-pound running back from East Central High in Tulsa, Okla., had a huge junior season on the field.
As a junior he rushed for nearly 2,500 yards, compiled over 500 yards receiving, and scored 41 total touchdowns, but he plans to have an even better year on the field this fall.
“We have been practicing real hard,” Session said of the team’s preparation for the season. “It has been real intense and really hot, but we are doing everything as a team to get ready to help win a State Championship. I have been working out as hard as I can.”
“We have a real good group of seniors and they know how hard it is to win a State Championship. We came so close last year and we want to be able to finish this year.”
Session is undoubtedly one of the top performers in the state and he has been receiving very steady recruiting interest and could be closing in on his first official scholarship offers.
“I have been hearing the most from Oklahoma, LSU, UCLA, Tulsa, and Kansas State,” Session said. “They are all staying in close contact and are just waiting on me to get back an ACT score.”
This summer Session had the chance to take a close look at Kansas State while attending a session of camp, and the familiarity with the program seems to have given the Wildcats an edge.
“I went there for one of their week long camps,” Session informed. “I would say that they would be the top school for me after I get that ACT. They have not offered yet, but they were talking about it pretty strong after the camp. I did really good there.”
Session believes he brings a healthy dose of skills to the field, and is hopeful his career turns out like his uncle and former Oklahoma State star R.W. McQuarters.
“My strongest asset is my special speed, but I also have the vision and I just try to wait and explode through the open holes,” Session said. “I try to mix that special speed with power and vision.”
“I kind of always looked up to R.W McQuarters. He is family. He is my uncle. I am actually returning punts and kickoffs this year, so hopefully I can do some things like him.”
“My father (Ken) also played for Tulsa,” Session continued. “I think that I get hands and my power from him.”
Session earned All-State honors after his successful junior campaign in 2006, and will be a legitimate candidate to ultimately win Mr. Football in 2007.
