Gerard Wicks has led Long Beach (Calif.) Poly through an improbable playoff run and the Washington State commit had another big game last weekend to lead his squad to the state bowl championship.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound three-star running back rushed for about 120 yards with a touchdown in Poly's win against Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North. Poly faces Granite Bay on Friday night for the title.
"We started off passing and that wasn't really working so we went back to the run game that led us through the playoffs and it worked," Wicks said.

The three-star prospect has been playing great this postseason and he said some more programs are starting to show interest.
Wicks has made it no secret he intends to take other official visits after the season and over the next few days he'll get a better understanding of which teams are the most serious moving forward.
Some new Pac-12 interest has come in along with an offer from Fresno State so Wicks is excited.
"I'll focus on this last week and then I'll get down to the schools," Wicks said.
"It hasn't picked up like I wanted it to but there have been schools coming in here and there. Fresno State offered me two weeks ago and then Utah and Washington called one of my coaches."
Trips to Boise State and Fresno State are being seriously considered. He's been committed to Washington State since June and said his commitment still stands.
"They're still up there," Wicks said.
