Kansas Comets – 2023 Football Team Preview – Presented by RibCrib





The Comets fell just short of making the Class 2A playoffs last year. But second-year head coach Warren Kirk says that with the experience coming back this season, hopes are pretty high for this year’s squad. “We return a lot of upperclassmen with a lot of playing time and bring up some talented freshmen and sophomores that can help right away,” Kirk said. “We have been working extremely hard in the offseason getting bigger and stronger. If we continue to improve on defense and cut down on some mistakes that lead to a few losses, I believe we have a chance to be pretty good.” After throwing for 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns a year ago, Seneca Steele (6-4, 200, Jr.) is back to lead the offense at quarterback. Paul New (5-10, 180, Jr.) and Logan Chewey (5-10, 215, Sr.) combined for 1,060 rushing yards and thirteen touchdowns last season and will work to increase those numbers this season. The Comets also bring back a trio of senior wide receivers that will look for passes from Steele. Scrappy Glass (5-9, 175, Sr.) had 600 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, while Max Noe (5-11, 170, Sr.) caught for 355 yards and five touchdowns. Zach Majors (6-0, 170, Sr.) tallied 250 yards and four touchdowns. 


The experience that the Comets are bringing back on the defensive side of the ball will play a big role in their success his season. The leading returning tackler is Kaleb Jobe (6-1, 220, Sr.). As a linebacker last year, he registered 70 tackles and nine tackles for loss. Also playing linebacker will be Majors, who had 45 tackles, six tackles for loss, and an interception, and Irish Ivey (5-9, 170, Sr.) with 37 tackles and five sacks. New also played at linebacker last season and had 42 tackles and three sacks. Taking care of things on the defensive line are Greg Campbell (6-2, 270, Sr.) and Bendabout. Together the duo wreaked havoc last season, combining for sixty-five tackles, five tackles for loss, and three sacks and they will look to increase those numbers this season.
