On NCAA National Signing Day, Walt Whitman’s Kieran Elmore made his commitment to play football for the Bryant University Bulldogs in Springfield, Rhode Island.

Kieran had a standout year for the Wildcats. “He’s a born leader that I was able to watch grow into that role, and mature into the exceptional young man that he’s become,” said Whitman’s Varsity Head Football Coach, Robin Rosa. “His leadership skills are second-to-none, and he’s one of the most intelligent football players I’ve ever coached. Kieran was like having a coach right there in the huddle.”

Kieran is an outstanding academic student who was a 3-year varsity football player at Whitman. He was the Offensive Center and Defensive End and was selected All-Division and All-County.  Kieran has been having a successful basketball season under Head Coach Tom Fitzpatrick.  “He’s such a positive role model here at Whitman,” said Principal Kathleen Acker. “He’s a personable, all-round, really good guy that will be truly missed.”
