Lexington kicker Christian Kinsley committed to Kennesaw State on Sunday.

“After a lot of prayer and talking it over with my family I am proud to say that I have committed to Kennesaw State,” Kinsley tweeted.

Kinsley was the Palmetto Champions Class 4A Specialist of the Year and handled punting and field-goal kicking duties for the Wildcats. He hit the game-winning 18-yard field goal with three seconds left against Spartanburg to send Lexington into its first state title game since 2000.

For the season, Kinlsey was 10-of-14 on field goal attempts, including 4-of-6 from kicks from 40-49 yards out, and averaged nearly 40 yards a punt.
