King Frazier is far from the little engine that could, but the Lee's Summit High School senior running back operates on a different motor than most in the area.

Sidelined during the first game of the season with a shoulder injury, Frazier re-emerged in a big way Friday with four touchdowns in the Tigers' 42-28 home win over Lee's Summit North.

"He walked in the locker room tonight and the kids were sitting there in the locker room after he came down from the coin toss and he goes: 'Hey, what the (heck) is it so quiet for?'" Tigers head coach Eric Thomas said. "Just right from the beginning his leadership, regardless of what he does on the field, the kids are just wired up when he's around. They know how special he is both as a person and as a player."

A week after having their lunch handed to them by Raytown South in a 38-7 loss, the 3-1 Tigers welcomed to their lineup the return of a healthy Frazier, out since Week 1 with a separated shoulder.
