FROM HAMLER'S HEAD COACH KEVIN WRIGHT
"KJ Hamler is one of the most explosive players I've been around. He has one speed...fast. Every rep of every practice he is going to give you everything he has. He is a proven winner on and off the field who leads by example and is the ultimate team first guy. I can't wait to watch him at Penn State over the next few years. In their system, and in that environment he is going to be electric."
FROM HAMLER'S COACH REGGIE WYNNS
"KJ is very athletic, super quick, very fast and has outstanding ball skills. He loves every minute of working out and competing. Size has never been an issue for KJ, he consistently demonstrated being the biggest player on the field. He always believed that working hard every day all day would lead to great success. KJ is one of the most electric players I've seen and truly lives up to the nickname "The Joystick." I foresee great things to come for this young man."
