He said the plan is to 'touch the field' as a freshman by working hard to earn the privilege to play. As a senior at NHS, Trey started at cornerback garnering 50 tackles during the season.
"I have waited for this day since I started playing football as a young kid and I never thought it would happen, but it's here," said Trey.
