Athlete: K’Den McMullin

K’Den McMullin’s senior year at Canby High School, it’s safe to say, has not gone quite the way he had planned.
It started off great. McMullin was selected by coaches and his fellow players to be one of the senior captains of the reinvigorated Canby Cougar football team.
McMullin, a running back, said the community excitement surrounding the team and the morale among the players was at an all-time high under new head coach Jimmy Joyce and his staff. Then, disaster struck on homecoming night last October against visiting Lakeridge.
It was a close game, and McMullin got the hand-off from quarterback Mikey Gibson on a critical fourth-down situation. It was his job to keep the drive alive, and he did. But the cost was pretty steep.
