Wick enters the 2014 campaign as a two-year starter and is definitely one of the Cowboys most dynamic playmakers. He showed his potential as a true freshman, but really took hold of the job in 2013 in a pass-happy offense. Blessed with good speed and instincts, he averaged 5.9 yards a carry and will be looked on for far more production with the departure of quarterback Brett Smith.
Smith prepped at St. Bonaventure in Oxnard, Calif., where he was named to the All-CIF Southern Section North Division team as a senior. The Mammoth League Offensive Back of the Year as a senior, he rushed for 1,271 yards on 133 carries and scored 15 times. Earned all-league and all-region honors as a defensive back, too, recording 84 tackles and two picks his senior season. Wick recorded a 10.9 second time in the 100 meters for the track team.
As a true freshman in 2012, Wick was the team’s third-leading rusher with 350 yards, but led the team with 92 carries and scored three times. Wick broke out in a big way in 2013, finishing with 979 yards rushing and nine touchdowns. He averaged 82 yards a game in a pass-heavy offense and eclipsed the 100-yard mark four times. His career high was a 17-rush, 234-yard effort against San Jose State. He’s an adept pass-catcher as well, recording 21 catches for 118 yards and a score as a sophomore. Look for him to up his catches, carries and production during the 2014.
