Wendy's Team of the Week: Conway Springs Cardinals

Posted: Updated:

Conway Springs has had no problem rushing past the competition in each of the first six weeks of the season, outscoring their opponents 371 to 66.

A majority of those points have come off the legs of senior runningback Trenton Jones and senior quarterback Colton Terhune.

"Those two guys are doing a good job being a one-two punch and our line is doing a tremendous job," head coach Matt Biehler said. "The guys right now are very poised."

Jones eclipsed the thousand yard rushing mark in the Cardinals' week six matchup with Mulvane on Friday. The feat is one many would love to match in an entire season, yet the humble back passes all the credit to his line.

"It's huge, I mean, they make it easy on me," Jones said. "I just have to run it."

"We have a really great line this year," Terhune added. "They work their butt off in the weight room every day and so do me and Trenton and all the other guys. We work as a team, it's not one person, it's just working as a team."

For the Cardinals, the win was just that, a full team effort over individual accomplishments.

"I just love the way the kids' work ethic is right now and they're going and putting the work in," Biehler said. "It is a good win going into districts, but we've got to be ready to get after a tough week."

That work ethic will be important as Conway enters play in one of the state's most stout districts. The four member teams of 3A District 10 have combined for a record of 23-1 through week six.

"It is tough, but I think we're ready for it," Jones said. "I think we've been preparing all summer long, all offseason to be ready for this moment, so we're ready."
