“That was everything we expected and more,” Barr'e said of the championship. “We had been working hard all summer, and to finally go out and bring the gold ball back to Jenks was a great feeling and a great honor.”
Trimble points to one quality that has allowed Barr'e to separate himself from other outstanding Jenks runners.
“What Trey'Vonne does probably better than any of our other guys is when we got him into the second level, he could really make the first guy miss,” the coach said. “The first guy rarely ever got him. Our running backs coach really emphasized that with him, explaining that in this certain play, if things go like we plan, this is the guy that could tackle you. He has an unbelievable knack for making that guy miss.”
Barr'e's recruiting remains up in the air as he tries to get his academics in line to qualify at a Division I program.
“We're hoping for some academic progress, and he's got some work to do, but we've had a lot of good programs asking about him,” Trimble said. “He might not be big enough to be an every-down back at the biggest level, but he's an every-down guy somewhere on the field.
“He can play inside receiver, run the screens out of the backfield. He's a kick returner, punt returner. He's really diverse, and I think that'll make him a really marketable player at the next level.”
