McIntyre's High School Career in Kennewick
The 6'2, 205-pound McIntyre played Defensive End and Tight End for the Kennewick Lions. He and his Lions teammates had a standout season as they finished 7-1 in the regular season and shared the Mid-Colorado Conference (MCC) Championship in a three-way tie.
McIntyre and the Kennewick squad also made the quarter-round of the 3A playoffs. The Lions would lose to the powerhouse Eastside Catholic team at a game in Memorial Stadium at the Seattle Center.
His Kennewick High School football coach, Randy Affholter, had great things to say about Idaho's latest commitment.
"Great kid!! He will be a great addition to the Idaho Football Program. I am sure he will find his way onto the field in the near future for them."
