Tramble, 5-foot-8, 175 pounds, will be a key piece in Tecumseh's push for the playoffs. He has rushed for nearly 1,000 yards this season behind strong offensive line play, and he adds a running threat to go with the throwing ability of 6-foot-5 senior quarterback Colton Owen.

“We stress that we need to run and throw, and we've been able to accomplish that this season, especially the last two weeks,” George said. “Julian has been a big part of that. He's a young man that in four years has never missed a practice, a kid you can always count on. He plays defensive back for us, too, and makes an impact on that side of the ball as well.

“We've just got to take care of business. The last two weeks, we've done what we needed to do, so we've got to stay focused and keep that up.”
