Dalvin Warmack expected to redshirt freshman year at Kansas State

Former Blue Springs running back Dalvin Warmack, a two-time Simone Award winner as the Kansas City area’s top high school football player, is expected to redshirt his freshman year at Kansas State.

Former Blue Springs running back Dalvin Warmack likely will redshirt his freshman year at Kansas State.

Warmack, a two-time Simone Award winner at Blue Springs, isn’t in the mix for playing time and K-State coach Bill Snyder expected Tuesday that he will redshirt.

A pair of Warmack’s high school teammates made K-State’s depth chart as freshmen. Kaleb Prewett will open the season behind Dylan Schellenberg at free safety, while Elijah Lee will backup Moore at linebacker.

Backup rewarded

Joe Hubener had a successful preseason camp. The sophomore from Cheney beat out Jesse Ertz for the backup quarterback job and earned a scholarship in the process.

Snyder praised the former walk-on.

“He has really done a nice job,” Snyder said. “He has caught eyes during the course of two-a-days.”

Committee approach

Snyder expects to use a committee approach to the running back position against Stephen F. Austin, rotating Jones and Robinson. He may also use Leverett. He is hopeful one of them will rise to the top of the group as a permanent starter, but he is also comfortable rotating running backs.
