It’s safe to say that 2014 running back Traevohn Wrench (Gardner, Kan./Gardner-Edgerton) is no longer bothered by a toe injury suffered earlier in the season.
In his last four games, Wrench has torched opponents for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns. In Gardner-Edgerton’s game last week against Olathe (Kan.) Northwest, Wrench rushed 28 times for 300 yards and five scores. It was his third consecutive 300-yard rushing game. He was three yards short of a 300-yard game against Blue Valley (Kan.) North, which would have given him four straight.
Wrench has offers from Kansas State, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska, and he has receiving looks from Oklahoma and Missouri. He was limited early in the season with turf toe, but he is showing why he’s considered one of the top running backs in the 2014 class nationally. Wrench rushed for more than 2,400 yards and 33 touchdowns as a sophomore, and he could top those stats with a strong postseason.
“I feel good,” he said. “I still get my toe taped every game just in case, but it doesn’t bother me.”
Gardner-Edgerton advanced to the Kansas Class 5A state semifinal last season. The Trailblazers will play Lawrence (Kan.) in an opening-round playoff game on Friday.
