``I was getting into a lot of trouble and wasn't paying attention in school," Trent said. "I was going to parties, staying out late and either showing up to class late or not going at all. My uncle thought it would be better for me to start over. It's worked out – I haven't gotten into trouble since I've been here and that's a big plus."
``He's a people person and a great kid, is in our leadership class and has fit in really well here," added Gig Harbor coach Kyle McIntosh. :He hasn't been in any kind of trouble here."
The only trouble has been for Trent's opposition.
The 220-pound junior had 14 points and 10 boards in about 20 minutes of action in a season-opening rout, but was apparently poked in the eye (Trent doesn't recall anything from the game) in a loss.
``He's very athletic, can play both inside and out and is just very versatile," McIntosh added. "He just needs to become a consistent performer. He's got all the potential, but at some point, that can be a bad thing. You've got to turn it into ability and he's starting to do that."
``I know I play to the level of my competition," added Trent. "If I play a weak team, I play bad. When I play a good team, I play the game of my life."
However, after traveling with Total Package over the spring and summer, Trent began to develop a national following.
``I really don't have a favorite," Trent said. "I just want to play it out."
