Coach Spotlight: Kason Hostrup
"It was an unfortunate injury," said Sachse head coach Mark Behrens. "He broke his lower leg. Now he's back to working out, back in the weight room. He's preparing himself for next spring." Kason Hostrup In light of the injury, Hostrup plans on grayshirting, sitting out the fall semester of 2010 and joining the team for spring practice in 2011. "When Coach Snyder came back to Kansas State a lot of the young guys had heard about him, but really didn't know a whole lot about him," said Behrens. "Kason, I think, is very mature for his age. He knew Coach Snyder returning was something special. He's touched base with Kason after the injury, reassured him the scholarship was still there and that was huge for Kason. The faith Coach Snyder and his staff showed in him was definitely a determining factor in his decision." Kason Hostrup, 6-5, 295, played both left and right tackle for Coach Behrens. A 4.0 student, Hostrup was also pursed by Rice, UTEP, North Texas, and San Diego State. "Kason became an outstanding player here," said Behrens. "He really made huge strides. As a sophomore he was given a starting role and kept getting better every week. His game not only continued to improve, but he also became a leader and not just on the field. Kason is someone you love to have on your team. He's got a great attitude. "For a lineman, he has great size, moves well on his feet, and shows outstanding agility. He does a good job dropping black in pass coverage. When we ran, he'd punch through to the second level and finish off his blocks. With his arm length I think he'll most likely play guard at K-State, but they recruited him as a tackle." This coming June, Kason Hostrup will graduate with his class at Sachse High. Although his senior year didn't turn out like he had hoped (the Mustangs went 4-5), Manhattan is waiting on the horizon. "Well we needed Kason," said Behrens of the Mustangs record. "He was a captain, and his on-the-field leadership is impossible to replace. He's got an outstanding family and is just a fine young man, the kind you wouldn't mind seeing your daughter date." One of Hostrup's offensive line mates, Kris Weeks, committed to SMU in March. As the population of the town now considered a northeast suburb of Dallas increases so does the talent level. Look for this up-and-coming 5A school to pop up more and more in future Division 1 recruiting classes. Kason Kai Hostrup wore No. 75 for the Mustangs. He plans to major in Business when he arrives at K-State.
