Press Release MSSU :

Missouri Southern football coach Daryl Daye has announced the addition of Joplin High School kicker Brock Renken to his 2014 signing class. 


Renken, a 6-1, 180 pound native of Joplin played for the Eagles and coach Chris Shields. A first-team class 6 All-State kicker, he was also a first-team All-Conference and All-District selection, while being named Academic All-Conference. A standout on the soccer field, as well, Renken was an All-District and All-Conference selection in the goal for the Eagles.

As a senior, Renken averaged 58 yards per kickoff with a long of 74. He had 28 touchbacks and had his longest field goal of his career (41-yards) against West Plains in overtime. He was 4-9 on field goals, missing only those from 45 yards and out. As a junior, Renken went 7-9 on field goals. 

Renken is the son of April and David Renken. 

"We're extremely happy to have Brock join our program," Daye said. "He's an outstanding young kicker and has the ability to help us out right away. It's also nice when you can dip into the local talent to help your program. He comes from a great coaching staff and I'm looking forward to seeing him on our team."
