Pierre soccer star Lincoln Kienholz is aiming for a commitment by the end of the summer

Pierre Governors QB Lincoln Kienholz (3) eludes a Tea Area defender during Friday night's 11AA State Championship game at the Dakota Dome.  Kienholz won the Joe Robbie MVP trophy and the Pierre Governors won 30-27.

Quarterback Pierre Lincoln Kienholz thought the recruiting process might have been stressful, but the last month has been fun. The junior, who has received six football offers from Power Five in the last month alone, used to take a call every week or two. Now he calls at least once a day.

“I just absorb everything,” said Kienholz, “experience it and just have fun with it.”

Some aspects of this can be stressful, and he plans to take some time soon to figure out when to draw a line on stopping throwing in front of teams and making his decision. He’s racked up 11 Division I football bids (and one basketball bid from South Dakota, but he thinks the football bids are enough to propel him in that direction) and teams still want him to throw. Teams that fascinate him.

Pierre TF Riggs Quarterback Lincoln Kienholz will be named the 11AA State Football Championship Most Valuable Player on Friday, November 13 at the DakotaDome in Vermillion.

As of Tuesday, he “hasn’t ruled out anyone yet.” Pierre’s last day of school was Tuesday, and Kienholz said he’ll likely sit down this week to cross off the original bid list. He will wait for the few who want to see him throw, but by the end of the summer he wants to stop throwing for teams, make his official visits and make his decision.
