It's week two of district play, but as Broken Arrow and Jenks were both unable to play last week, they begin their playoff push Friday.

The Trojans will need some of their senior leadership to step up.

Versatile playmakers have been an almost annual part of the Jenks-Broken Arrow rivalry, and for the Trojans in 2020: enter senior Waylon Adams.

"Waylon is just one example that excels at everything he does,” Jenks Head Coach Keith Riggs said.

Adams might be the perfect player for Riggs with several Ivy league schools already wanting his service next year. He has been able to lead the Trojans in six different positions.

"That’s what has allowed us to play him in so many different positions,” Riggs said. “He doesn't need many reps to be able to be good at whatever he is doing."

From catching touchdown passes, to maybe one day becoming an engineer one thing is for sure: no matter where he lines up or what he's asked to do, he just wants to win.

"I like both,” Adams said, who is listed at both tight end and linebacker. “I like to get the ball but I also getting physical and pancaking people too."
