Will Geary plays close to the ground as anchor of KSU defense

The burly senior anchors the middle of the defensive line and pretty much goes unnoticed. He’s fine with that. Some of it comes with the territory of being a defensive tackle, and some of it is the low-key personality of Geary.

“It’s impossible to compare myself to someone like that,” Schoen said.
