Mork Signs With Northwestern Football, Baseball

Keaton Mork of Storm Lake, has signed a letter of intent to continue both his football and baseball career at Northwestern College next fall.

Mork is a 5’8″, 250-pound offensive / defensive lineman who played four years for the Alta-Aurelia High School football team. Mork earned second team all-district and third team all-Northwest Iowa honors after blocking for an offense that scored 32 touchdowns and gained over 2,500 yards his senior year. Defensively, Mork totaled 24 tackles and one fumble recovery last fall. He is the son of Tom and the late Tracy.

“Keaton has a motor that never quits and possesses outstanding work ethic,” said Northwestern Head Coach Matt McCarty. “He has played for successful teams in high school and understands what it takes to win. We look forward to Keaton being part of our Red Raider football program.”

A four-year standout at first base and pitcher heading into his final baseball season, Mork has a .335 career batting average with 18 doubles, two home runs and 67 RBI’s. He has scored 36 runs and walked 32 times, earning both second team all-area and all-Storm Lake honors as a sophomore and first team accolades last summer. An honor roll student and academic all-conference selection, Mork plans to major in sports management at Northwestern.

“We are really excited for Keaton to join our program and the Northwestern community,” commented Red Raider baseball coach Brian Wede. “He is a good high school bat who will continue to get better in our program. Keaton is a great fit for Northwestern and for our football and baseball teams. I can’t wait to see how he continues to develop as a young man and as a player.”
