Plymouth High’s Reisert among UNH grid walk-ons

Plymouth’s Kyle Reisert, who was named USA Today Defensive Player of the Year in New Hampshire for the 2013 season, has decided to play for the University of New Hampshire football program as a walk-on.

Reisert, who helped lead the Plymouth Regional High Bobcats to an NHIAA football championship during head coach Chuck Lenahan’s final season, accomplished numerous achievements. In each of his last three varsity seasons, the defensive end/tight end was selected All-Conference first team honors.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Reisert was recently selected to the New Hampshire Shrine Team and has been chosen to participate in the CHaD East-West NH All-Star Game.

Reisert was a three-time All-State first team defensive end and an All-State second team pick as a tight end during his freshman season. The senior captain was also recognized for his work in the classroom. He’s the recipient of the Joe Yukica New Hampshire Chapter National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete Award.

Also coming to UNH next fall as walk-ons are Nick Derocher of Northwood (Tilton School) and Jake Klose of Dix Hills, N.Y.

Derocher had an outstanding career at Tilton School, where he was a three-year All-Evergreen League performer and two-time team captain. A tight end/running back on offense and a defensive end/linebacker on defense, Derocher was selected to the All-New England prep school first team and earned team MVP honors during his senior season.

Klose transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver his senior year and had an outstanding season, catching 39 passes for 727 yards.
