Kansas State sophomore tight end Zach Trujillo has one heck of a memory for his first catch as a Wildcat – a mistake in personnel set up his 58-yard catch-and-run in last Saturday’s 52-13 victory over Miami.
The play called for fullback Braden Wilson to be on the field, but when the Wildcats got in the huddle, starting tight end Travis Tannahill noticed it was just he and Trujillo.
“Well the play actually should have gone to me,” Tannahill joked. “The running backs, fullbacks and tight ends all meet as a group together so I knew what to do.”
Tannahill lined up at fullback and Klein found Trujillo, who played mainly on special teams and two tight-end sets last year. It’s actually his fourth year with the program after using a greyshirt in 2009 and redshirting in 2010.
“I was 10-15 yards behind him, running down the field,” Tannahill said. “I was really happy for him … and you could see he’s a little lighter so he’s got a step or two on me and Andre (McDonald).”
