Whoever lands him will be getting a winner, and a throwback player, Trimble said.
Winning the state title meant a lot to Waggoner, who had been paying close attention to Trojan football since the fifth grade.
“It was an unreal feeling, one of the best feelings I've ever felt so far,” he said. “My first year at Jenks in fifth grade was the year Jenks came back in the Backyard Bowl with a last-second touchdown. It was exciting. I didn't understand it as much as I do now, but I did pay attention.”
Football is just part of the world you grow up in at Jenks, a fact Waggoner always keeps in the front of his mind when he sees young kids lining the fence to watch the team.
“All the little kids know your name, and they're high-fiving you,” he said. “They get into it. They're just as rowdy as the high school students.
“You're like a role model, so you've got to play smart, show them how it's done and keep the legacy going for them.”
