Trenton wide receiver having banner season

Trenton's senior wide receiver/defensive back Dan Elmore came into the 2003 season as one of the state's top prospects at wide receiver.

His accomplishments so far haven't diminished the expectations of Elmore's coach Bob Czarnecki.

"He's a legitimate college prospect," Czarnecki said.

After Trenton's first five games, a 5-0 start, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Elmore had caught 41 catches for 575 yards. Trenton has lost since then but the Trojans have put themselves into position to make the playoffs.

"We've been playing a little better as a team. Everything is going smoothly," Elmore said.

Elmore's best game was against Garden City. He caught nine passes for 200 yards.

"I got open in the secondary real well," he said. "They weren't playing us tight so that gave us some holes."

Elmore said he's interested in a college future and will start pursuing it.

"I've received a lot of letters but I'll make my decision during the offseason," he said. "Hopefully, I'll be looking at a Mid-American Conference or a Division II school."
