Every summer there are a lot of great events, team camps and 7-on-7 tournaments that help teams prepare for the upcoming season.

We start off the 2018 PrepsKC Summer Tour with a stop at the Blue Valley King of the Trenches Lineman Challenge. This event is held annually and some big-time names have competed in this event.

Current NFL players Evan Boehm and Elijah Lee both took part in past contests. Former Olathe South and Auburn lineman Braden Smith won the individual title three straight years. Smith was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the last NFL draft.

This year’s event featured seven teams with the host Blue Valley squad taking home the team title with 809 points edging out St. James by a single point. The individual crown was taken home by Lawrence’s Sam Burt with 179 points followed by Blue Valley’s Blake Richmeier with 175.
