Trosin Is Still Looking For A Home

American River QB Tanner Trosin (6-0, 180) had a great sophomore season, leading the Beavers to a 10-2 record and hopes to find a school to finish out his college career soon...

"I had a pretty good season and, as a team, we had a great season," Trosin told JCFootball.com recently. "Honestly, I didn't care about my stats at all. We were a ball-control team, so we didn't throw it around the park all day, but I got my stats in and, more importantly, I feel like I did a good job of leading my team and growing in that area."

Trosin finished the season with 2,268 yards passing to go along with 20 touchdowns and just six interceptions while completing 61.9% of his passes.

"I'm a competitor. I love to play the game and just get out there and compete with my teammates," Trosin said. "I'm good at distributing the ball, but I can run it if I need to."

While Trosin is a solid passer already, he knows he needs to keep working to perfect his craft.

"Definitely want to work on the small things," Trosin said. "Studying film, reading defenses better, leading my receivers better, hitting them in better spots so they can make plays. Honestly, I feel really good about my skills throwing the ball, but you can always improve and that's where my focus is."

As a prep, Trosin was a standout at Folsom (Ca.) High School and he signed on to play at Cal Poly, but opted to leave pretty quickly after getting there due to fact that his new team ran the triple-option.

"I didn't want to waste what I could do throwing the ball at a school that didn't throw it," Trosin said. "My brother went to American River, so it was pretty easy to choose to go here, but I also really liked the coaches and they have a great program here."

So far, no schools have come after Trosin, but he hopes that changes once schools get a look at his film and they see what he can do on the football field.

"I'm confident in what I can do on the football field, so it's more about someone seeing me and taking a chance on me," Trosin said. "I think they'll be happy if they do, but I have to find the right place before an opportunity comes up."

Trosin is ready to leave right now, having earned his AA degree in December and he will have two years to play two starting this fall.
