Brandon Rundgren showed promise last season as a young quarterback for Franklin High School.
He’s showing even more of it now for the Wildcats of Elk Grove.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior earned Bee Prep of the Week honors through fan voting for his work against Cosumnes Oaks last Friday in a Delta League opener. Rundgren completed 11 of 17 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns, two to Michael Hardey, and he ran for a score to key a 42-21 victory.
Rundgren has passed for 795 yards and six touchdowns, and he has averaged 18.4 yards per carry in rushing for 92 yards over five games for the 2-3 Wildcats.
