|"Big play ability" was just one of the qualities Kevin contributed to WHS athletics. As a ball-hawking three-year starting defensive back and running back, the Panthers compiled a 30-2 record, won two state grid championships, and also finished second. He played an integral role in the vaunted "Baker's Dozen" defense that blanked ten opponents in 1973. Kevin set a school record with 17 career interceptions and tied the season mark with 10 pass pilfers while being named to "All-Big 9" first teams as a defensive back three consecutive years.
Equally adept on the diamond, he started for two seasons as a hard-hitting infielder and earned berths on "All-Big 9" baseball teams twice. Kevin paced the Panthers in batting average and RBIs as a junior and senior to lead the team to a 42-18 record.
He also played basketball for WHS and collected a total of eight letters.
Kevin began his collegiate career playing baseball at Washington State University, then transferred to the University of Puget Sound and switched to football as a starting defensive back.
