KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: St. Francis boys basketball’s Andrew Kimball
Why he was selected: Scored 21 points in Friday’s 3A Freeport Sectional title game against Rockford Lutheran
St. Francis senior Andrew Kimball was a key part of the winningest stretch in St. Francis boys basketball history. Kimball, a Geneva resident, was a role player on last year’s team that advanced to a sectional final, and emerged as the leading scorer on this year’s team that advanced to the 3A NIU Supersectional before falling to Limestone on Tuesday, 55-50. Kimball, who scored 21 points against Rockford Lutheran and canned a couple 3-pointers in the Limestone game, is the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Athlete of the Week. He spoke with Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab after the Limestone loss. The following is an edited transcript:
How much did you enjoy this ride?
It was a blast. I love this team, every single one of us. No one thought we’d be here, that’s what makes it sweeter. It was just great playing with these guys. The whole community and the school was with us. It was just great.
