Monday February 11th three Bondurant-Farrar Student Athletes (Kainen George-Townes, Brody Sandin and Christian Conn) signed their letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers. Kainen signed with Grandview University for football, Brody signed with Southwestern Community College for baseball and Christian signed with Iowa Western Community College for football.
Kainen decided on Grandview University because it is close and a good program. Kainen is still undecided on his course of study in college. Kainen is planning on training hard throughout the summer to be the best prepared he can be for the jump to the next level. Bondurant-Farrar Head Football Coach Zach Pfantz said, “Kainen was our best offensive lineman and most physical blocker. Grandview is getting a tremendous young man with a ton of talent and potential. He is a tough athlete and cares about his team and teammates. I have no doubt he will make a big impact at the next level. We will miss his leadership, toughness, commitment and the level of care he showed to our program and his teammates.”
Brody decided on Southwestern Community College because of options it gives him to go on to play at higher levels and it is fairly close. Right now Brody plans to get general classes out of the way, with the goal down the road of working towards a degree in environmental science. Brody will prepare by finishing his prep career with the Bluejays, then playing with a travel team before joining SWCC. Bondurant-Farrar Head Baseball Coach Brad Hamilton said, “Brody has worked hard to get better and is very competitive. SWCC will be getting a good kid, who is hard working and enjoys the game.” Southwestern Head Coach Kenny Namanny commented that, “Brody fills the needs for another arm on the staff. He is a hard thrower and could be utilized in the rotation or in big late game relief situations.”
Christian decided on Iowa Western Community College for several reasons, first he has several friends there, second he has an opportunity to compete and third it will give him a chance to play at a higher level. Christian plans on getting general education classes out of the way first with the intent of gaining a business degree in the future. Christian is going to prepare for the next level by participating in track, rugby, summer training and working with premiere athletics. Bondurant-Farrar Head Football Coach Zach Pfantz stated, “Christian is a great young man, a true leader by example that loves the game of football. They will get a tough young man that will set high goals and work his tail off until he achieves them. We will miss the example he set in how he practiced, worked, and prepared as those things very much contributed to the high levels of success he experienced.”
