Senior RB will soon eclipse the 5,000 yard career rushing mark
Consistency is the mark of a great athlete and a quality college recruiters look for. For Casa Grande High School football, consistency is emplified by Senior RB Joe Trombetta. For his career, Trombetta is about to achieve the 5,000 yard rushing plateau. As a sophomore, Trombetta rushed for 2,008 yards. As a junior he rushed for 1,778 and currently this season, over seven games, he has 1,121 yards averaging about 160 yards a game.
This prowess on the field, combined with a 4.0 GPA has gotten Trombetta considerable D1 notice. Currently, Boise State, Idaho, San Jose State and UC Davis have given writen offers. Along with these written offers, Trombetta is receiving attention from Oregon, Arizona, Stanford, Fresno State, Nevada, San Diego State and Northwestern. If possible Trombetta would like to stay close to home and go to a strong academic school. UC Davis has both of these requirements and offers the chance to play soon.
At 6'0 and 200 pounds and running a 4.45 self reported forty, Trombetta offers colleges many options. Along with running the ball, he continues to play safety for his team. Of the schools interested in him, some are looking at him as a running back and some are looking at him as a safety. Some schools, Cal specifically, have talked to Trombetta about gaining weight and playing fullback. Currently, Joe's main focus is getting his team back on the winning track after a tough loss to Sonoma league leader Healdsburg. If consistency continues to run its course Trombetta should be a big part of the Casa Grande once again getting to the 3A NCS title game.
