Hudsonville QB leads Eagles title hopes

Senior quarterback Brek Trevino doesn't know how his Hudsonville football team can top the performance a week ago when the Eagles upset defending Division 2 state champions Lowell 57-56 double overtime in the regional finals.

Hudsonville, 10-2, plays Rochester Adams Saturday in a Division II quarterfinal game. The game was 42-all going into overtime during which each team gets one possession from the other team's 10-yard line. Quarterback Brek Trevino threw a touchdown pass and also passed for the conversion to give his team a 50-42 lead. Ryan Dykhouse, Lowell's quarterback, ran for a TD and the two-point conversion to send the game into the second overtime.

Dykhouse threw a TD pass in the second overtime but the try for two points failed. Gureodey Weiss ran for a touchdown and Tyler Burke kicked the extra point to win the game.

"That was probably the most exciting game we've played, " Trevino said. "I didn't think I played that well. I didn't throw as well as I should have."

Lowell, Trevino said, was focusing on stopping the pass, something the 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior might run into against Rochester Adams.

"I think I have good instinct as a quarterback," Trevino said.

The three-year Hudsonville starting quarterback has established himself as a college prospect.

"I've improved on my passing a lot this year," he said. "I worked on it a lot this year. I know the offense more. I know where my receivers will be. My arm has gotten stronger."

Hudsonville lost in the regional finals last year. Now the Eagles have advanced past the regional stage and hope to be playing at the Pontiac Silverdome Nov. 28 for the state title.

"We don't just want to get to the Silverdome," Trevino said. "We want to be state champions."

After the season, Trevino wants to be a quarterback of a college football team. He's been contacted by Western and Eastern Michigan on the Division 1 level and Grand Valley, the defending Division II national champions.

"I'm also hoping to worry about that after we win the state championship," Trevino said. "My size might hurt me in trying to go Division I. But I think I have the ability."
