Athlete of the Week- Trey Pierce
CHARLESTON- Like every other high school football player, Porter Gaud senior Trey Pierce has his eyes on the prize. "It means the world. To anyone a state title is everything. I've been playing since I'm eight years old. A state title would be the biggest thing that would ever happen to me" says the Cyclones RB/WR. Pierce certainly can see himself playing the game he loves at the next level. "He's looking at Ivy League type schools, academics first and football is a tool to get him there" says Porter Gaud Head Coach Rick Reetz.
When schools like at students, they like well rounded ones and Trey fits that bill perfectly. "He's a great rusher, great wideout and I also have him playing defense which was helped. He's a great all around player, I also have him in my class and he's a great student also" says Reetz. Pierce, truly a well rounded student with perspective as well. "I'm so privelaged to be here at Porter Gaud. I think it's a big thing that we give back to the community so I can give back. I do community service for environmental progress as well as Crisis Ministries. I do Pet Helpers with SPCA, Adopt-A-Highway and beach sweep where we clean the mess we create" says Pierce. He's a busy guy, but the next thing he'd like to accomplish- the state title he covets.
