Looking for a big reason why Fort Scott is 4-0 in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference and ranked at No. 11 in the nation? Look no further than three-star receiver Brandon Kinnie.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Grandview, Mo., native has blossomed into one of the nation's top playmakers. He's ranked as the No. 51 player in the nation by Rivals.com and schools all over are very interested in him.
"Last week against Independence I had about seven receptions for 90 or 95 yards," Kinnie said.

"We keep winning, which is the most important thing to me. We knew we were going to be a good team, but we never expected to be 5-0. We just have to keep working and rolling hard to get to 12 wins and play for it all.
"Coach just keeps telling us to go out every day and take care of the little things. Keep working hard and good things will happen."
Good things have been happening on the recruiting front.
Kinnie continues to list Nebraska as one of his top choices after an official visit to Lincoln back on Sept. 5.
"I'm still sitting good with Nebraska," he said. "Nebraska coach, coach Ted Gilmore, called on Friday telling me to have a good game. I still really like them, but like I've said I want to take a few more visits and check out a couple more schools."
Another school definitely high on his list is Arkansas and another SEC school is starting to show a little interest.
"Arkansas came up to the school on Friday," he said. "LSU was at the game on Saturday and they really seem to be starting to show me even more interest. It's really exciting to know a team like LSU is looking hard at you, and I've liked what Arkansas has been talking about for a while now."
Up next for Fort Scott is a road game against last place Dodge City on Saturday.
