It seems as if it’s been forever that Gunner Kiel was one of the top QB recruits coming out of high school, but this season we will finally get to see him produce on the field for the Cincinnati Bearcats, should he win the starting job.
Saturday, Kiel and the rest of the team took to the field for their annual spring game, and Kiel was rather impressive in the scrimmage outing.
Overall, Kiel finished the day 17-of-22 for 300 yards, and he even ran one in for the score. After the game, Kiel said he came out and played with a chip on his shoulder.
“ I want to play perfect every game,” Kiel said. “I came out here with a chip on my shoulder to get better and compete have fun and play fast because that’s what we are good at. So it was fun. I definitely enjoyed my time and I’m ready for the season to begin.”
Kiel is not guaranteed to be the starter this year as last year’s man under center, Munchie Legaux, will be back this year after missing the majority of last season with a severe knee injury.
