Brett Kaiser

Brett Kaiser had 1,118 yards receiving this season.

Brett Kaiser had the best football game of his life Sept. 29 in Mitchell, Nebraska.

He had seven catches for 263 yards and five touchdowns in Kearney Catholic's 56-37 win over Mitchell, setting the Class C-1 single-game record for most receiving yards and touchdowns.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior is a two-way player for the Stars. In the game against Mitchell he added seven tackles and one sack for a 21-yard loss.

"I never thought I would break records," Kaiser said. "I just go out there and work as hard as I can to help my team win."

A strong senior season in which Kaiser had 51 receptions for 1,118 yards and 14 touchdowns has put him squarely on the radar of college coaches. So far he has received scholarship offers from Division II schools Northwest Missouri State and Missouri Western State with interest from Emporia State, UNK and Sioux Falls.

"I am going to take my time with the recruiting process and not rush anything," Kaiser said. "I want to take some official visits and take my time with the decision."

Kaiser has taken two unofficial game-day visits to campuses this season. He visited Northwest Missouri State on Oct. 21 and attended the Nebraska game against Wisconsin on Oct. 7. 

"I'm looking for a right fit with the coaching staff," Kaiser said. "I want to be coached by a staff and position coach that will make me a better player every day."
