Lead Summary

On New Hampton’s football roster, Keaton Geerts is listed at 5-foot-7 and 153 pounds.Folks, size isn’t everything in high school football.Geerts ran for 194 yards on 23 carries and scored four touchdowns to help second-ranked New Hampton roll to a Class 2A, District 2 42-14 win over winless Hampton-Dumont.“He may not be that traditional speedster,” New Hampton coach Scott Frerichs said, “but he’s quick and really shifty out there. He showed a nice knack to get to the hole.”And while Geerts may get a little grief about his size, he thinks at times it works to his advantage.“I think sometimes they have a hard time finding me because I can hide behind Kam [Pfaffle] and [Noah] Hopp,” Geerts said. “The guys got off the ball every single time and gave me some nice holes. We needed that ... we needed to show we don’t just have to pass the ball and that we can run, too.”New Hampton improved to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in district play, thanks to a quick start.For the full story, please see the Sept. 20 Tribune.
