Not sure why you are telling me that. I’m just saying the announcers should just call him Kene so they don’t sound like idiots

I feel like the pronunciation on the first name should be ken-ay? Seems like that way they have it could be also read as Kena, but I am not a linguist.
I read that phonetically (ken-A) as “ken-ay.” With the “A“ being capitalized, they mean it’s stressed/emphasized, which to me (at least) means the long “a,” which I’d pronounce as “ay.”

Chris has mentioned on his show that the Vikings are pronouncing it the correct way.

What’s lowkey cool about that return today: you can see a guy (I think 57 for the vikes) once Kene got through that whole he just stopped running because he knew there wasn’t a chance in hell anyone was gonna catch him. There wasn’t a niner anywhere close to him that last 30 yards.

Does the award/honor mean a possible good contract?

I didn't watch the Vikings much this year but he seemed to be a bright spot.
