Sanford's Cooney Next In Line

Every few seasons the Sanford School cranks out a state title and a Division I prospect. This time around, sophomore Trevor Cooney is hoping to continue the tradition.

Trevor Cooney is a bit of a rare bird. It's not often a native Delawarean blossoms into a Division I scholarship player. However, Hockessin (Del.) Sanford School has been the backdrop for a number of success stories.

Towson's Ralph Blaylock, Villanova's Will Sheridan, Maryland's Laron Cephas and Withrop's Tyson Waterman all proceeded sophomore shooting guard Trevor Cooney at Sanford.

The 6-foot-3 member of the Class of 2011 attended the Nike Hoop Jamboree last year and notched his 1,000 point last weekend.

"He's a shooter," Sanford coach Stan Waterman told "He's complete and very athletic."

Cooney's also well-traveled. "We were at the Carrier Dome last weekend for the game against Notre Dame," Waterman said. "It was my first time there and they had 30,000 (fans) it was ridiculous."

In addition to the Orangemen, Cooney's visited Wake Forest and Villanova. Waterman indicated early offers from ‘Cuse, Wake, Maryland, Notre Dame, Villanova and St. Joseph's.

"He works hard and he's a gym rat. He's got a great feel and he understands the game. He's got to work on defending and we're just trying to add something to his game. This year he's getting to the rim and finishing on the break. He can play one or two."
