MANHATTAN — Ben Sinnott’s path to a college football career never came naturally.

Then again, the fact that he’s made himself one of the tight ends of the Big 12 shouldn’t come as a shock either. Kansas State coach Chris Klieman isn’t surprised.

“No, because I just know what a great athlete the boy is,” Klieman said of Sinnott, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound junior from his own hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. “From baseball to hockey to football to basketball to golf, this guy can do it, he really can.”

In fact, Sinnott did a little of everything at Columbus Catholic High School, which also happens to be Klieman’s alma mater. In addition to football, he played in baseball, golf, tennis and track and field.
