As we prepare for our 2014 high school preseason coverage we are going to take a quick glance at teams from across the state.

Team: Kickapoo HS
Nickname: Chiefs
Head Coach: Jason Howser
2013 Overall Record: 17-12
2013 Conference Record: 6-3
2013 Conference Finish: Tied for 1st
2013 Post-Season: Lost at Districts
Returning starters: 3
Pitchers with 15+ Innings Returning: 3

TOP PLAYERS: (Listed Alphabetically) 

Danny Crews, 2015, SS/P, L/R
Kyle Giefer, 2016, P/UTIL, L/L

Alex Kellogg, 2014, 1B, R/R
Jake Smith, 2014, P/1B, R/R
Logan Wiley, 2015, P/OF, R/R


Joey Humphrey, 2014, P, L/L

The Chiefs had a disappointing loss at districts to finish their 2013 season. That bad taste has been left in their mouths for 9 months. They return 3 starting position players and 3 pitchers that had 15-innings or more in 2013. Kickapoo will be led by seniors Alex Kellogg and Jake Smith. Coach Howser also expects big production from juniors Danny Crews and Logan Wiley (Committed - Kansas State). Sophomore Kyle Giefer is an underclassman who could contribute this year. The Chiefs strengths will be pitching and defense. Kickapoo can’t wait to get back on the diamond this Spring and avenge their first round loss at districts in 2013.
