Kuehl, Morton Earn Iowa State Football Scholarships
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State walkons Daniel Kuehl and Matt Morton have been awarded football scholarships by head coach Paul Rhoads. Kuehl is a senior punter from Sioux City-Heelan who is in the thick of the fight for the starting job at that position. Morton is a sophomore linebacker from Henderson, Texas.
“Daniel has demonstrated significant improvement this season,” Rhoads said. “He has a chance to be our starter next week. Matt is a hard worker who will see action as a starter on several of our special teams units.”
Iowa State opens the season Sept. 2 with a 7 p.m. game against Northern Illinois in Jack Trice Stadium.
Last Saturday, CPR told the media that he hadn't made a decision yet but that Kuehl had been the more consistent of the two during camp. With this announcement today, I wouldn't be totally surprised if he's the starter next Thursday.
Along with Woody, that makes two sophomores that have earned a scholarship. I can't recall the last time that this has happened. Usually it is a 4th or 5th year senior that gets the scholarship for their last season. That tells me that the staff is convinced that these two guys can be valuable contributors.
Congratulations to all 4 guys who have earned a scholarship this month.
