UA Punter Ben Krimm receives 5 star status

Congratulations to UA Football's Ben Krimm ('19) on receiving 5 star status from Kohl's Kicking! Ben is listed 26th on the list provided in the link below. Here is what they say about him:

"Krimm recently competed at the 2018 National Invitational Scholarship Camp. He had one of the more impressive punts at camp with a 50 yard 5.37 second hang time. Krimm is one of the more talented athletes we have seen and has the leg to compete with the best in the nation. His power and work ethic will see him competing for a starting position next year at the next level. We at Kohl's are excited to see how the next 12 months will be for Krimm."

We in UA are too! Go Bears!
