Jenks Is Looking For A Return To The Top

Posted: Updated:

The Jenks Trojans have won a total of 11 Oklahoma Class 6A State Championships in high school football.
          
Nine under Jenks Head Coach Allan Trimble.

But the number Trojan fans are thinking about right now is four.  That's the number of years they've gone without winning one.

And it has to burn a little that their arch-rival Union has the last four.

No player on this Jenks team has tasted a title and they're hungry to change that.

"They're ready to go and they understand that.  They walk by those trophy cases and see it." Coach Trimble said, "And I think they are ready to get one of their own.  We just encourage them and tell them how much work and intensity it will take to get one.  It's not easy.  It's a tough climb up that ladder.  We've been on top and of course Union is up their now.  You just got to do it one practice at a time.  We tell the players it's all about preparation and hard work and putting yourself in position to get on top."

The Trojans open the season August 31st against arch-rival Union.
