Trace James Kochevar (b. Oct. 22, 1997) is a recently graduated tight end who is set to grayshirt in 2016 and likely to redshirt in 2017, especially because he might end up being a decent offensive tackle prospect in the long run.
A three-year letter-winner for Salina High School South under head coach Sam Sellers, Kochevar earned honorable mention All-State accolades as a junior and senior from The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle.
He totaled 230 receiving yards during his prep career and helped the Cougars to earn a 20-5 record during his final two years, including a state runner-up finish as a senior.
Kochevar also was a three-year starter in basketball, earning all-county and all-league honors. His father, Darrin, played college football at Coffeyville Community College and Bethany College.
