Football runs in the Kaiser family as sophomore Matt Kaiser follows in the footsteps of his older brother, Gage by playing football for the Tigers varsity squad last season as wide receiver. Gage Kaiser played on the offensive and defensive line during his career as a Tiger, however Matt Kaiser plays wide receiver and established himself last season as a solid part in the pass game. Kaiser ended the year with 7 touchdowns and led the Tigers in catches with 24. Kaiser is featured in the talented up and coming 2019 class along with Noah Cortez, Peyton Thompson and Andre Fountain.
“Matt works hard, and he is very persistent,” junior Peyton Ross said. “If he keeps working and grinding hard, he’ll be a really good player.”
Matt started playing sports at a young age, and was involved in baseball, football, and basketball until recently, when he chose football as his primary sport. It was only fitting since his family lives and breathes football. His father, Chris Kaiser, was the former University of Tulsa defensive line coach until he retired in 2013, and played college football just like his two older sons.
“I’ve known Matt for awhile now and I think these next couple of years, him and I are gonna be playing great,” sophomore Peyton Thompson.
Matt devotes a majority of his time to football, but he also enjoys hunting, fishing and being involved with his dad in FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). He likes to hunt ducks, deer, and other wildlife and just generally enjoys being outdoors in nature. He’s also a devout Christian, and attends church regularly.
“I’m excited for next season, I’m ready to showcase my talents and show everyone how much this team has improved,” Kaiser said
Football starts up again in October, and the Friday night lights will again be lit at Tiger Memorial Stadium.
