A Joe Palka offense usually requires a highlight-reel playmaker.
That man is Kolton Malinczak.
He showed flashes of that ability as a junior. This year, it’s been on full display through three games. He’s got hands. He’s got speed. And he’s incredibly tough for a 5’8, 150-pound guy. That’s already a great mix. Now stir in big helping of fearlessness. And you have Kolton Malinczak.
As a junior, Malinczak made 30 catches for 363 yards and two touchdowns. Through three games this season, he has 18 catches for 316 yards and five touchdowns.
