Talented Sophomore One to Watch

Although just a sophomore, two-way La Punte (Calif.) Bishop Amat athlete Trevon Sidney is already one of the state's best football players...

It hasn't taken 2016 standout Trevon Sidney long at all to make a big impact this season. He has shown he's not only a game breaker at receiver but a lockdown cover corner as well with great ball skills.

We saw Sidney in action last weekend against a very good Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany team and he was easily one of the best players on the field. He scored one touchdown on a nice catch and run and had two interceptions and now has seven on the year.

He also took on the challenge of covering talented Alemany wide out Desean Holmes all over the field and did an excellent job. Sidney looks about 5-foot-10.5 and 165-pounds. He has a solid frame, is very quick and has excellent football instincts.

Sidney is a very competitive player who plays with a nice edge to him. He's a tough kid and when you consider he still has two years left to develop and physically mature, it's scary to think how good he can be by the time he's a senior.

On the recruiting front, Sidney grew up with a childhood favorite but said he's open to everyone right now.

"I liked USC growing up but I'm open to everyone who wants to recruit me," Sidney said. "I like UCLA and Oregon too and I'm going to try and get out to some camps and do some visits in the summer.

"One thing for me that will be important is what position I'm being recruited to play. I want to play receiver in college, I like corner too but I like offense better. Hopefully I'll have the option to pick what side of the ball I play but we'll see what happens. I have plenty of time and just want to enjoy the process."
