Withrow brothers to compete for the same team once again

Kimball senior, Jaden Withrow, signed his letter of intent this past week to play football for the Dakota Wesleyan University Tigers. This means there will be two Withrow brothers on the Tiger roster as Jaden joins once again with his brother Jonathan, who just completed his second season at DWU. Jaden is one of two recruits who were signed strictly as athletes, meaning they could be looked at for various positions and various roles in the program.

When questioned about the possibility of competing in other sports as well, including track and field or basketball, sports he has excelled in for Kimball High School, Jaden responded "I plan on just concentrating on football. I think my track and field will be over after high school this spring. I am really looking forward to getting to play again with my brother Jon. It is like a dream come true. I never could have imagined this happening."

Jon and Jaden played two years of high school sports together and now have the opportunity to play two years of college football together.

Jaden's father John said, "You don't know how much of a load this took off of our family in trying to follow both boys. It worked out perfect."
