Christian Allen-Van Pelt, an all-conference selection for Kimball High last season as a junior, is expected to be back for his senior season in football and once again shine on the field and be a much-needed leader to the younger players. Christian is shown here doing a heavy dead-lift as other athletes observe.

Kimball High athletes were back in the school's spacious weight room this past week after the NSAA gave permission for Nebraska schools to open up their weight rooms at the same time, while still watching and using the 6-foot social distancing rule as much as possible and wiping down all equipment used.

I made a trip to the Kimball High weight room this past week and with permission from Coach Ben Aarestad, who was overseeing the 7:30 to 9 a.m. lifting session.

I observed for a short time and gathered a couple of pictures to share with you readers. There were eight young men working out during the time I was there.
