Trew bulks up, takes on new role

Dinner was ready when Kyle Trew answered the phone, but that's not an uncommon occurence nowadays. Trew has been making food a priority this summer, gaining ten pounds to tackle a new position for Edmonds-Woodway; outside linebacker. So now Kyle is 225 pounds and ready for his senior season to start. There are some schools that are also interested in seeing the new Kyle and how he plays defense.

"It feels the same," Kyle told Dawgman.com about the extra poundage. "I've put on pretty much muscle. I've been working on the weights a lot. I'm at the same speed. I have a big frame, so it's not like I'm carrying any extra weight." And what about the new challenge of playing outside? "I've never played it before, so in the beginning I was just using my athletic ability but now I'm getting the reads down and working on my vision across the ball and things like that."

Trew talked about what he's been doing with his Warrior teammates of late. "On the 25th we went to another team camp in Mount Vernon, more of a bonding camp," he said. "We had two-a-days, played games and just got everybody comfortable with their teammates. That way they feel good about sticking their neck out for another guy on the team." The Warrior better bond in a hurry, as they play their first jamboree on Friday against Roosevelt and one other team.

Now that September is here, college coaches can now call and Trew received three calls on the first. "Coach Gilbertson called from U-Dub," Kyle said. "He was just wondering where I was playing and what I was doing. Later in the day a coach from Oregon called. The Ducks. He pretty much asked me the same questions. I think he wanted game tape of me too. A little bit later, the University of Arizona called. They want me to take a look at them and to keep them in mind."

And he's doing just that, keeping everyone in mind. "I'm just weighing my options and make the best choice for me as to where I should go," he said about how he's attacking the process. Trew doesn't have any official visits set up yet but will visit Washington either the first or second week in December. The Huskies and Washington State Cougars continue to be the two schools that have stepped up and offered Kyle a scholarship.
