Coach Corbin Quote: Kiambu’s athletic ability is hard to ignore. What has benefited him most over the last year has been his ability to get individual attention in the weight room and excel in summer competition. He is progressing along well and with continued game repetitions, he will learn to help our team in the near future. He has a very positive spirit and is well liked by his teammates.
