Coach Kevin Conlon’s quote: “Trent’s game against Williamsburg was one of the best high school performances I’ve seen. He’s had a fantastic start to this season with both his play on the floor and his leadership with the team. He has put a lot of work into becoming an all-around offensive threat and not just a shooter; it’s exciting to see that hard work pay off. I’m looking forward to watching both he and the team improve as the season progresses.”
