Former Jenks High School standout Darwin Thompson, now with the Kansas City Chiefs, scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday.
Thompson told reporters after the game that he learned about the death of his high school coach, Allan Trimble, hours earlier.
“He taught me how to win,” Thompson said of Coach Trimble, according to the Kansas City Star. “That’s really where my foundation started — how to win, how to grind, how to work hard. Ultimately, it helped build to where I am today.”
