Updated: 2013-09-20T01:42:57Z

Missouri: Bryce Graskemper

SCHOOL: North Kansas City

YEAR: Senior

North Kansas City scored 25 unanswered points in a wild 34-31 comeback win against Raytown last week. Senior quarterback Bryce Graskemper led the charge. A transfer from Liberty, Graskemper tallied five touchdowns in the second half — two passing and three rushing — to help the Hornets improve to 2-1.

Kansas: Traevohn Wrench

SCHOOL: Gardner Edgerton

YEAR: Senior

It didn't take long for Wrench to find his old groove. After a disappointing season opener saw him lose two fumbles, Wrench responded last week with 257 rushing yards and five touchdowns in a 49-27 win against Blue Valley Northwest. Wrench, a KU commit, leads the Eastern Kansas League in rushing through two weeks.
