Sports in Kansas: Football Statewide Defensive Stat Leaders (2022) – Updated After Week 11

Sports in Kansas has released its weekly list of football defensive stat leaders across the state. Stats are compiled across the state of Kansas each week from coaches/athletic directors. Directions to submit: Coaches/ ADs submit official stats (cumulative stats/totals, not individual game box scores) by Monday at 5 pm to Chet Kuplen at [email protected]. MUST be emailed (no DMs/tweets on any social media platforms as this is a very large project to produce with over 300 schools playing in KS). If we don’t have your stats then they were not submitted to Sports in Kansas by the deadline or not submitted at all. If you make the list after week eight of the season you stay on the list and are eligible for a statewide leaders patch (send an email to [email protected] and we will email you back an order form ASAP)
