In his incredible varsity career, things started pretty fast for Roger Bacon's Corey Kiner, one of the best high school running backs in the nation in the class of 2021 and a MaxPreps' preseason first team all-Ohio player. As a freshman, in just his second varsity game, Corey set a new school single-game rushing record, running for 302 yards and five touchdowns in a 47-12 win against Western Hills. He finished the season rushing for 1,226 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Now, four years later, Corey has kept on running and setting records (11 school records) and is one of the most sought-after college recruits in Greater Cincinnati. He also is on Sports Illustrated's preseason high school All-American watch list. In just three seasons, Corey already is Roger Bacon's record-holder in rushing (5,264 yards), all-purpose yards (6,804), rushing touchdowns (81) and career touchdowns (88), among other categories.

His sophomore year, Corey tied a school record when he scored six touchdowns (five of them rushing) in the Spartans' 54-7 win over Reading. He finished that season with a single season school-record 1,740 yds. rushing, leading the conference, while scoring 26 TDs. He was named GCL Co-Ed Central Offensive Player of the Year, 1st team GCL Co-Ed Central, 1st team all-city Div. IV (Enquirer), 1st team SWO District Div. IV and 2nd team all-Ohio Div. IV.

Entering his junior season, Corey was rated the nation's No. 5 running back in the 2021 class by 247 Sports. In a win vs. CHCA, he ran for a single game school-record 323 yds., breaking his own record, and became the first player from Greater Cincinnati to score eight touchdowns in a single game. On the season, he rushed for 2,298 yards and 40 touchdowns to lead the 10-2 Spartans to the playoffs for the first time since 2010. He also had a receiving TD, a punt return TD and two kickoff returns for TDs.

An honor roll student who is very active in community service, Corey during his free time, enjoys drawing, graphic design, fishing, traveling with his family and attending sporting events at Roger Bacon.

He will play football collegiately at LSU. His favorite athlete is LeBron James, favorite entertainer is Will Smith, favorite book is Friday Night Lights, favorite movie is Drum Line and most-like-to-meet is Michael Jordan.

COACH'S QUOTE – "Corey Kiner is a once in a lifetime type of student athlete. Not only is he a record-setting running back on the field, he is one of the most humble, hardworking and generous players off the field."
— Mike Blaut, Football Coach
