Selling himself to a college football program was an easy task for Green Valley High wide receiver Kyle Larimer.

All the speedy senior needed to do was send coaches film of the Gators' Sunrise Regional semifinal game against Las Vegas High.

Larimer caught 11 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown in what turned out to be the final game of his high school career.

His college career is just getting started.

Larimer verbally committed to Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo., last weekend during a recruiting trip and will receive a partial scholarship to the Division II school.

"The thing I liked about them is that they are national contenders," Larimer said. "I really think with the kids coming in and the players they have that we will have a chance to do some good things."

Colorado School of Mines went 8-4 last year and lost in the Annual Dixie Rotary Bowl to Western Washington University.

Larimer, who caught 51 passes for 781 yards and four touchdowns in 2008, said his scholarship will cover 65-percent of his college expenses. He will likely red-shirt next fall.

"He is the type of kid who can be a game breaker," Green Valley coach Matt Gerber said. "He makes things happen when he gets the ball in his hands."
