Lasch Bash: Andre Kirton Looks To Prove Himself Coming Off Injury

The Lasch Bash is a huge opportunity for Penn State head coach James Franklin and his coaching staff to get to see recruits in action in camp as well as for them to experience Happy Valley. There will be commits from the Class of 2023 in attendance, as well as high-ranking prospects that remain uncommitted.

However, in my opinion, the best part of the Lasch Bash is the recruits that are not as high profile coming to the Elite Showcase turning heads and impressing coaches. One underrated prospect at the Lasch Bash Camp is Andre Kirton, an athlete out of Long Island, New York.

Nittany Sports Now had an opportunity to talk to Kirton before he visited Penn State about what he wanted to accomplish at the camp.

Kirton is a 5-foot-8, 170-pound running back and wide receiver out of Holy Trinity High School in Long Island, New York.

He spoke about transitioning from playing offense to playing defensive back during camp, hoping to get an offer and commit to Penn State.

‘’ I am going there to play defensive back, and some at receiver but really defensive back. I heard there is a couple of spots open for the DB position, and if I get an offer, I will commit on the spot.”

NSN also asked Kirton how he plans on being a better player, and he spoke about being a more vocal presence in the locker room.

“I really trying to be a leader because last season, I would lead from the back and wouldn’t speak, and I know a lot of the kids look up to me. My main focus season is becoming more of a leader.”

Kirton spoke on how exited he is to prove himself at the Elite Showcase that he is coming off a knee injury in the last game of his season last year.

“Last summer I went to a lot of camps, but this year I haven’t because I injured my knee. I tore my LCL in the last game of my football season. I have been to local camps but not any of the big schools.”

Here is hoping that Kirton achieves his goals and grabs the brass ring at the Lasch bash this weekend.
