Trent Brehm: Purpose is No Problem

Trent Brehm doesn’t have any stars in the recruiting rankings. He’s not being pursued by the Blue Bloods of college football. His is by no means a household name.

Studied and Steady: Creighton Prep’s Alex Bullock

Editor's Note: As of 9/29/20 Alex has received a Preferred Walk-on offer to join his brother at The University of Nebraska.

The two undefeated teams — Millard West and Bellevue West— have won all of their games by at least 10 points.

Teddy Prochazka’s Big Commitment

Big guys are common in football games. It’s almost a prerequisite, especially for offensive linemen in today’s game, to be among the largest human beings walking the Earth. Football players are big. But “big” probably doesn’t do justice to Teddy Prochazka, junior offensive tackle for Elkhorn South High school. “I think that his height is what...

Dedication And Tons of Steak Have Will Swanson Ascending

There’s one word that can be ascribed to virtually every successful athlete: dedication. The hours spent honing the craft, conditioning muscles, fueling the body, studying opponents and schemes all require a special level of commitment above and beyond mere athletic gifts.
