Why haven't you asked those girls out that you believe are wife material? More than one I'm assuming?
That's a very good question. Lol!
Probably more timing than anything.
Your profiles says Quarterback for the 2014 Arizona Western Matadors and BYU Commit. Are you playing JC this year? If so, how many years of eligibility will you have at BYU?
Yes I am. I'm playing JUCO for a semester, then I'll be out in December. And I'll have 3 years of D1 eligibility.
What surprises you the most about the students at BYU
Not sure, I'm not there yet. :)
Who was your favorite QB to watch growing up??
Tim Tebow and Drew Brees.
do you have a favorite BYU creamery ice cream yet?
BYU Creamery?!? This sounds like a place I should already know of...
I've met a few girls who I believe will make great wives.
Who should I draft in fantasy football...A.J. Green or Dez Bryant?
Have you met any girls that you'd consider "wife material"?
Yes I have. :)
What happens if you don't end up getting the playing time you want at BYU? They have some good quarterbacks coming in. What is your plan B?
Don't have a plan B.
But plan A is to train, prepare, and grow into the best option for BYU.
What motivates you to share the gospel in places that might not have heard it or need to hear it?
I'm just as motivated to help people here, who think they have heard the Gospel, realize it to be true. That doesn't have to be so far away, that can be done right here.
And I'm motivated by the fact that Jesus asks it of us, as Christians.
That's all the motivating someone should need. :)
Will you get time this weekend in Utah?
That's not my call, obviously. But I feel very confident that I will.
What inspired you to be who you are today?
I think it is a combination of a lot of things. Everyone has different things that inspire them.
And the core of everything, I seek to glorify The Lord with my entire life. So whatever I do, I do it so that I will bring honor to Jesus.
I want to bring honor to my parents, my family, my friends, and my future wife and family. That's honestly what inspires me to be the very best, at whatever it is that I choose to do.
Did you transfer to Arizona Western recently? Will you be able to get some PT at QB there?
Yes I did. And that's the plan. I'll play a little this weekend, just as I'm learning the system, and we'll see how it progresses from there.
how do i become the "right girl" for you??
Lol! Just be yourself, and if it's meant to be, I'm sure it'll be.
Do you have any former Mizzou teammates you still keep in good contact with?
To be honest, not really. There are several guys that I have a lot of respect for, but I haven't really talked with any of them.
But I haven't been gone too long. Maybe that will happen at some point.
Most influential coach you have had?
Does having my father as a coach count? :)
Other than my father, I would have to say my wrestling coach from Staley, Gary Mayabb. Both of those men have had a tremendous amount of influence.
Best pro football coach of all time? Tom Landry, Bill Walsh, Vince Lombardi, Hank Steam? Who would you say?
I'm a huge fan of Bill Parcels, but it'd be hard not to give it to Vince Lombardi or Bill Walsh.
So it's safe to say every girl would call you their dream guy.
If that were true, I wouldn't be single, would I?
What's your definition of a right girl?
Everyone always says, "Stay away from girls. They'll distract you from football" or whatever it is that my goals are.
But I think, to put it simply, the right girl would be the girl who not only doesn't distract me from pursuing my goals, but a girl who inspires me to be better in every area of my life.
A girl who makes me want to train harder, study more, love better, and live more righteously, because she is deserving of the very best that I have to offer.
That's how I would define the "right girl."
Will you ever date someone soon?
I'm not sure. I think it's more dependent on whether I find the right girl, rather than my decision to start a relationship.
How is your mom doing. Tell your dad I'm thinking of them.
Mom is in a lot of pain. She goes into surgery on Tuesday. It hurts to see my mom in pain. She has such a high pain tolerance, so when you can tell she's hurting, you know it has to be excruciating.
Please continue to pray for her.
And thank you for asking.
What is your proudest moment?
When I was in New York for the Wendy's High School Heisman ceremony and they showed us the preview of the ESPN segment they were doing on each of us, my Mom and Dad did an address to me in the video clip telling me that I brought honor to The Lord, to them, and to my school.
I've never felt more successful in my life than in that moment.
Sometimes I watch that video clip if doubt ever starts to get a hold of me.
It's encouraging every time.
It is great to see a Christ-centered athlete from a non-LDS family embrace the culture and spirit of BYU. Does your family have any plans to attend any home games in Utah?
Well thank you very much. I appreciate that. And I'm not sure if they will this year, because I'll be playing on Saturdays. But when I get there, they won't miss a game. :)
Trent, take good care of yourself in Okla, have fun and a boatload of success, it will be wonderful to see you on the field at BYU. I appreciate your standards and Christian walk, I look forward to your tweets with a encouraging message. Keep talking about the Savior
Thank you very much!
How to find true love?
Don't ask me! I'm single!
