DANVILLE COACH B.J. LUKE
"Trent is a very athletic kid, a guy that is truly gifted in his ball skills. He's one of those players that is really comfortable with the ball in his hands.
"As a quarterback, Trent did a great job for us as a junior and senior, making a ton of plays as a passer and running. On defense, he possesses the length to defend the vertical pass and has enough athletic ability to match up with inside receivers.
"Trent has meant a great deal to our program. He's a solid guy and comes from a good family. He's a winner on and off the field."
