West York Area OL/DL Brody Kern issues verbal declaration to Delaware

Written by: on Sunday, August 5th, 2012. Follow Josh Funk on Twitter.


Three of the last four seasons for the West York Area Bulldogs have ended in the District 3 AAA semifinals.  If the Bulldogs are destined to reach that juncture of the season, they’ll have a Division-1 prospect on their offensive line helping to pave the way.

Brody Kern, a 6’2, 270-pound offensive and defensive lineman, issued a verbal declaration to Delaware Sunday evening, according to the York Daily Record/Sunday News.

Kern becomes the second Pennsylvania athlete from the class of 2013 to declare to continue his career with the Blue Hens.  A fellow District 3 player, Kyle Yocum, quarterback for Exeter Township High School in Berks County, also intends to continue his career with Delaware.

A two-way presence for the Bulldogs in the trenches last season, Kern helped to pave the way for a West York offensive unit which averaged 316.4 yards (179.7 rushing, 136.7 passing) and 29.8 points per game en route to a berth in the District 3 AAA semifinals opposite Lampeter-Strasburg, producing three 530+-yard rushers and a 1,700-yard passer while scoring 52 total offensive touchdowns (31 rushing, 21 passing).

West York finished 10-3 overall, and the Bulldogs are 59-16 overall (.786) since the start of the 2006 season.
