Two Sign With Northwestern

Northwestern logoOrange City, Iowa — Sean Kleinwolterink (Sheldon, Iowa) and Brady Van’t Hul (Hull, Iowa), both from Western Christian High School, have signed letters of intent to continue their football careers at Northwestern College next year.

“It’s nice to have Sean and Brady join us at Northwestern College,” said head coach Kyle Achterhoff. “They come from Western, a program that uses similar terminology under their head coach Travis Kooima, and that should help them as they transition to our system.”

Kleinwolterink is a 6’2”, 170-pound wide receiver and defensive back who lettered three years for the Wolfpack. An all-district selection, Kleinwolterink caught 26 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns, averaging nearly 14 yards per catch. He also registered 14.5 tackles on defense in leading his team to a state playoff berth and a 6-5 overall record. A member of the honor roll and National Honor Society, Kleinwolterink plans to major in business administration at Northwestern. He is the son of Mark and Ruth.

“Sean is a receiver with great size and length,” commented Achterhoff. “He has good hands and understands the game well. We think that Sean will transition very well to the college game next year.”

Van’t Hul is a 5’10”, 195-pound running back and linebacker who played three years for the Wolfpack. Van’t Hul earned first team all-district honors for the second straight year after rushing for a team-high 654 yards and six touchdowns on 133 attempts. He averaged nearly five yards per carry and also caught four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, Van’t Hul accounted for 45.5 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery while leading the Wolfpack to a 6-5 record and state playoff berth. He also earned honorable mention all-district honors as a sophomore. An honor roll student and member of the National Honor Society, Van’t Hul plans to major in biology at Northwestern. He is the son of Brian and Markie.

“Brady has good size and strength for a running back coming out of high school,” commented Achterhoff. “He runs hard and is very good between the tackles. We are excited to have Brady join the Red Raider family.”
