Coach Kevin O'Neill- “We are looking for Trevor to give us a lot of leadership and have an oustanding senior year. He's had a great summer of working on the weights. He is coming into his own and wants to be a team leader. We are looking for someone to replace Tony Smith as the team leader and we think Trevor will do that. He has the ability to score inside and he has been a fixture there for three years.”
