CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Kyle Denning does it all, from the grass, to the turf, to the hardwood, Denning has been a cornerstone of NU high athletics for the last 4 seasons. Now, the senior has his little Panther basketball team off to a 16-2 start and #2 ranking in the state."
Head Coach Paul Elser says he has become the leader of this team. "He tries to do whatever it is to help his team win if it's diving on the floor to get a loose ball or creating a turnover he's not even going to think twice about it. And we kind of play how he plays he's kind of our leader so far he's been taking us down a good road and I expect more form him later on."
