83 Days to Purdue Football: Kurt Lichtenberg

Today's profile is on another player that has been very much under the radar since coming to West Lafayette. Still, he gets his day in the sun at Hammer & Rails with a full write up.

Kurt Lichtenberg - Jr.

Hometown: Warrenville, IL (Wheaton-Warrenville HS)

Wide Receiver

6'1", 185 pounds

2010 Projection: Deep bench at wide receiver

It remains to be seen if Lichtenberg will ever see the field short of special teams at Purdue. If you keep your eyes peeled in the expected blowout of Western Illinois you might see him get on the field near the end of the game at wide receiver. If not, he will follow the route of many walk-ons in that all of his contributions will be as a part of the scout team.

That is where Lichtenberg has made a mark for himself in the past few years. While he has not played since joining the team as a walk-on in 2007, he received the Verle H. Campbell Scout Team Award last season. Much like Kyle Adams, this Law and Society has been a solid off the field by building houses in Haiti for Habitat for Humanity through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

In high school he helped Wheaton Warrenville to an undefeated season and Illinois State championship in 2006. His high school teammate was Dan Dierking, who was an all-star on that state championship team at running back. Lichtenberg had a touchdown in the state championship game to help Wheaton Warrenville win that title.

Whatever his contributions will be this season, Lichtenberg is a valued member of the team that is appreciated.
