FORT SCOTT, KANSAS -

Fort Scott Community College welcomes Kale Pick as the new Head Football Coach. Pick completed his first season as the FSCC quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator this fall. He previously coached at the University of Kansas and Texas A&M University.

"We are excited to start a new era of Greyhound football with Coach Pick. I have been able to witness firsthand everything that he brings to our program, and I have been very impressed,” said Tom Havron, FSCC Director of Athletics. “He has earned a great deal of respect from his players, fellow coaches, and me. The team is headed in a very good direction under Coach Pick’s leadership.”

As a Dodge City High School student, Pick was ranked the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the U.S. by Rivals for his running and passing abilities. He played both quarterback and wide receiver at the University of Kansas from 2008 to 2012 and started in 28 games. In 2011, he was No. 2 player in catches and receiving yards for the team. He received the Ironman Award in the 2011 off-season, which recognized him as the most dedicated player, as voted by his coaches and teammates. During his senior season in 2012, Pick led the Jayhawks in catches and receiving yards with 63 receptions for 752 yards and two touchdowns. He was also awarded the Gales Sayers Award in 2012 by the coaching staff, which recognizes the most competitive player of the season.

“Throughout my college football career, I played under three head coaches and five position coaches. I have also worked under two head coaches. This has been a blessing because it has given me the opportunity to learn about a variety of coaching styles, techniques, and thought processes,” said Pick.

In 2013, Pick served as an offensive graduate assistant coach at the University of Kansas, where he worked with Ron Powlus and the quarterbacks and Rob Ianello and the wide receivers. In 2014 and 2015, Pick served as an offensive graduate assistant coach at Texas A&M University, working with offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital. He also coached the wide receivers during the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl, where he served as interim assistant coach.

“The Greyhound football team will have a strong focus on community and scholarship in addition to athletics. We want to give the community of Fort Scott a college football team that they can be proud of,” said Pick. “It’s our goal to develop the student-athletes into well-rounded individuals who will succeed on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.”

When describing his coaching philosophy, Pick said, “We want to outwork and outsmart the other teams. We will work hard, but we will also have fun as a coaching staff and team,” said Pick.

Pick graduated from the University of Kansas in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in communications.
