Hennessey's running backs got plenty of attention during the Eagles' run to the Class 2A state title last year, but Trey Leu was also a huge part of Hennessey's success. He threw for nearly 1,200 yards and ran for more than 300 and nine touchdowns. This season, he's looking for a repeat of last year's success.
What was last season like winning a state title?
It was pretty crazy. Everybody on the team believed that we could do it. It was kind of expected for us, but it kind of shocked everybody else. Going into the Millwood game, we know that was going to be out biggest test, but we also had confidence that we could do it, and we got the job done.
How much different is it preparing for this season?
We have a different mentality that we did last year. It's tough winning your first state championship, but it's going to be even tougher winning another. We know we've got a big target on out backs, and we accept that. We're just moving forward now and trying not to think about last year too much.
What's it like having Levi Hill and Ivan Moreno in your backfield?
It's real comforting as a quarterback. Anytime we need a few yards, they're always there. It helps me out a lot. It really opens up the passing game when you have not only one but two great tailbacks to pound it in there.
How long have you been playing quarterback?
Ever since I started playing football in sixth grade. I moved to Hennessey so I could play football because they didn't have it in Drummond. Their quarterback had just moved to Okeene, and I stepped in and have been there ever since.
What do you plan on doing after high school?
I haven't gotten any offers or talked to anyone really about playing in college, but it'd be great if I got that chance. If that opportunity doesn't present itself, I'll probably go to Southwestern. I'm planning on going to pharmacy school. I've always had the mindset of math and science. Those have been my favorite and best subjects, and that fits in with what I want to do.
