Head coach Elias Gniffke commented on the Comet’s new gunslinger:

“Kenyatte is an absolutely dynamic player who has all dimensions of offensive football in his game. He’s characterized by his ability to handle pressure well and keep plays alive that are supposed to be lost. We are very happy to bring an explosive playmaker to Kempten with Kenyatte, who will ensure many great moments in the Illerstad.”

The 27-year-old spent 2020 playing for the Durham University Saints in the United Kingdom while earning his master’s degree. the year prior, he played with the Wataha Zielona Gora of Poland. He then spent the 2021 season back playing indoor football for the Bismark Bucks in North Dakota. The dual threat passer threw for 471 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions and rushed for 165 yards and 3 TDs.

The Comet’s new quarterback will look to have the team back in the playoffs after another post-season run in 2021 for Allgäu. Expect Allen Jr. to target fellow newcomer Anthony DableWolf as the American quarterback would love to get the former NFL pass catcher in the endzone often.
