Piner’s Rose suffers broken leg

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Piner’s Kameron Rose suffered a broken tibia in the Kiwanis All-Star Game in late July, an injury that will delay his plans to walk on the UNLV football team as a punter and placekicker.
The left-footed Rose, a three-sport athlete who was the Press Democrat’s large-school male athlete of the year, was injured after attempting a short field goal. An opposing rusher dove into Rose’s plant leg.
Rose expects his leg to be in a cast for about 12 weeks. He will attempt to walk-on UNLV’s football team as a sophomore.
As a senior at Piner, Rose drilled field goals of 50 and 45 yards. He also had punts of 82, 73 and 64 yards.
He has enrolled in UNLV’s culinary arts management program.
