What you'll find are a handful of highlight videos, and to be honest you may not find the majority of them Sportscenter Top 10 worthy, but that really isn't the point of this exercise.

For the Mustangs in 2012-13 Trentman spent most of his time playing Robin to Justin Saunders' Batman. It was a role in which he excelled, averaging 12.8 ppg, 7.1 rpg, & 1.1 bpg, while shooting 54.5% from the floor. But with his senior season right around the corner, look for the bouncy big man to be more of a Caped Crusader type. While he does share the 10th's top front court with bruising 6'7" classmate Drew Burns, Trentman will most assuredly be Brossart's go-to-guy in 2013-14. If his play on the AAU summer circuit is any indication, Trentman is poised for a breakout year, where he will likely join Brossart's illustrious 1,000 points club (386 points shy). Trentman gave an interesting answer when asked which NBA player he most models his game after. "Dwayne Wade," he told BGP. "I have always been a fan of him since Miami won the NBA Finals in 2006. His ability to block shots always amazed me with his height." Individually, he doesn't speak much of what has already been accomplished, but more so about areas where he hopes to improve. "I would like to become more assertive and improve my defense for the upcoming season," Trentman says. The athletic power forward has drawn the interest of several colleges. NCAA Division II school Christian Brothers (Tennessee) has been the only program thus far to offer an official full ride, but several others keep in regular contact. "I have taken official visits to Seton Hill University and Christian Brothers, and I hope to visit Shorter University in the near future," Trentman says, although the honors student doesn't have a timetable for when he'll make his college choice. Rest assured that whichever school secures his services will be more than pleased. As for his team, Trentman labels last season a success, as the 'Stangs finished 26-6, won the 10th Region Class "A" Tournament and the always competitive 37th District. But the senior forward wants his team to reach greater heights this year. He does hope for continued success in the Class "A" and 37th District, but he goes on to say, "I want our season to end at Rupp Arena. That's our ultimate goal."
