Kenyon Green Is Versatility Personified
Since his Pee Wee days with the Houston Outlaws, Kenyon Green has carried a "can do" mentality. When given a specific task, Green has valued the idea of being flexible no matter the situation.
For instance, in his freshman year at Atascocita High School in Houston, Kenyon's father, Henry Green, was approached by coach Craig Stump and asked for a favor: to discuss with Kenyon the idea of moving over to left tackle. Considering Kenyon was already an accomplished defensive lineman, Henry felt that his son would not be happy with moving to a position that is often overlooked.
As expected, Kenyon was not pleased with the idea, but he reluctantly accepted the change, courtesy of some sound advice from his father. With time, the move would pay dividends, as he blossomed into one of the top prep linemen in the nation.
During his three years with the Texas A&M Aggies, Green played at every position along the offensive line. In his freshman year, he started right guard, earning SEC All-Freshman honors. The following year, he started 10 games at left guard and proved to be even stronger at the spot. In addition to receiving All-SEC honors for a second straight year, he was a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy. By his junior year, Green played at four different positions along the offensive line, and earned First Team All-America stats by several publications.
Versatility has been Green's insurance policy since his days with the Outlaws. With his father's tutelage and guidance, Green has succeeded in ways few offensive linemen have been capable of doing so at multiple positions. Beyond the accomplishments, he has shown the desire to contribute no matter the situation presented to him. In a deep offensive line class such as this, he stands out as a rare breed who can be special at the next level.
