Kassis thrives in do-it-all role

Kassis thrives in do-it-all role

On the third play against Weber State, wide http://www.packersprosale.com/lane-taylor-jersey-c-1_2.html receiver Kevin Kassis went in motion and quarterback Chris Murray gave him the ball on a reverse. It was Kassis’ third carry of the year and just another way Montana State coaches have involved him in unconventional ways.
Midway through the fourth, Kassis went in motion before the snap again. This time, Murray delivered a swing pass. Instead of moving forward, Kassis turned back, planted his feet and threw the ball back to Murray, who sprinted 25 yards to the end zone.
“He could throw it probably as well as some quarterbacks, quite honestly,” offensive coordinator Brian Armstrong said. “He’s smart. He’s very smart. I mean, the kid, shoot, I don’t know there’s much he can’t do. … He’s just one of those guys that’s pretty darn good at everything he does.”
Kassis has eight receptions, three rushes, one completion and three punt returns. The sophomore wide receiver opened the season as the Bobcats’ holder on field goals, as well, and has served as a backup kicker in addition to a valuable weapon on trick plays.
Growing up, Kassis also played soccer, baseball, golf, ran track and swam. Participating in all those expanded his skill-set. He credits his dad with exposing him to different sports.
“He’s a Swiss Army knife and he can play probably any position we want him to skill-wise on offense,” MSU head coach Jeff Choate said. “He gives us a lot of flexibility in our game plan.”
In Kassis’ native California, football season overlapped with soccer and ultimately he had to choose one. But his ability to kick stuck with him.
Prior to the Bobcats’ opener at Washington State, Kassis practiced field goals in warm-ups. With then-backup punter Jered Padmos expected to redshirt, Kassis started at holder until Week 3.
Once Padmos returned to action, Kassis willingly gave up the position.
“Padmos is a pretty good holder so I http://www.49ersprosale.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-c-1_9.html was like, ‘Dude, that’s your thing. You’re good at that,’” Kassis said. “I don’t know if I was the best holder or not.”
Even if he wasn’t, having the receiver on the field and with the ball in his hands gave MSU intriguing options.
As a high school sophomore, Kassis played quarterback on Oak Ridge’s junior varsity. When he was promoted, he moved to wide receiver since he would have been stuck behind Ian Book, now a quarterback at Notre Dame.
