Mills visits the K-State football locker room. He committed to the program after also receiving offers from three other colleges.

Over the summer, senior Aidan Mills received and accepted a football scholarship offer from Kansas State University. Mills’ offer includes full tuition and a place on the football team.

“I was really excited that they finally offered me. I had been up there about six times to camps and for visits to games and stuff and I was just really happy that all my hard work paid off,” Mills said.

Weights teacher Tad Remsberg has seen Mills’ drive for excellence appear in many areas of his life.

“I think he’s got great work ethic, not only in the classroom, but in the weight room also. He’s in my weights class and does a great job in there,” Remsberg said.

Mills’ talents stood out to other schools as well. He received offers from Northwestern Oklahoma State, Wyoming and Emporia State before receiving his offer from K-State.

“(I chose K-State because) it’s a bigger division one school and I have been up there a bunch of times to visit. They started showing interest in me in my sophomore year. So, I just really got to know the coaches and liked the atmosphere, all the fans and everything when I was up there visiting.” Mills said.

Mills hopes to study something in the medical field at K-State and looks forward to being a member of the football team.

“Just being able to be a part of their great program and being able to accomplish my dreams of playing at the next level and just becoming a better player [makes me excited],” Mills said. “And how the players grow. When they get through their program they come out a better player and better person.”
