Stingers add dominant DL from New Hampshire

Head coach Mickey Donovan is pleased to welcome powerful defensive tackle Kris Skinner from Concord, N.H. to the Stingers football family.

“He is a legitimate university football player,” says Donovan who went to New Hampshire for a signing ceremony at Concord High School this afternoon. “He is going to come in and show what he can do right away. He moves like a defensive end. He’s very agile. Power is his biggest asset. He attacks, moves well and finishes his plays.”

Skinner, who measures six foot three and weighs 290 pounds, earns a lot of respect for both his strength and speed.

The 17 year old ran a 4.73 electric 40 time in his junior year of football and runs a 4.88 now that he’s more mature.

He also has a long list of honors to his credit. In 2014 he was named to the Division 1 North All-Conference team in New Hampshire. He was also named to the USA Today All-USA New Hampshire Defensive Football Team.

In December Skinner was selected play in the Diamond High School All American Bowl and competed along side the best high school football players from across the U.S.

This June, Skinner will play in the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD) East-West All-Star High School football game.

The Concord High School Crimson Tide posted a 6-4 win-loss record in 2014. The previous season Skinner and the Crimson Tide had a perfect 12-0 record en route to a state championship. He was all-conference and all-state that season.
