The twitter photo that highlights the social media page (and used here in this article) of six-foot-5 Trevin Holland of DeSmet High School shows you the length and agility of what he can do. Trevin was a double-double guy as a junior putting up strong numbers. Now he’s a Pentagon Schooler looking at a college athletics future.
“My high school season got off to a rough start as I missed half the season with a knee injury,” Trevin explained. “After that we got into a groove and ended up getting into the Sweet 16 right at .500.
“We battled against Bridgewater-Emery in the sweet 16, but came up short. I think I improved as a player by getting to be a better shooter and movement through our offense.”
Once he was healthy Holland changed the De Smet season and now he’s hoping to help the Pentagon Schoolers into a strong summer of play.
“I think we are getting to know how each other plays and adjusting to that,” Holland said of playing with the Pentagon squad.
“I think the Schooler program is great and we get in awesome tournaments with great competition. We also get good exposure at these tournaments.”
Going forward to the July events in Sioux Falls, Wichita, and Las Vegas Holland has goals for himself and his 17u team.
“As a team we want to get better at playing defense and run through our offense more thoroughly.
“As an individual, I would like to handle the ball better and get to the rim off the dribble. I would also like to get better at my on-ball defense. I want to be a threat inside and out, as well as on defense.”
Holland is also a state standout in Track & Field. He’s gained the attention of college coaches in both hoops and on the track.
“I have had contact with multiple schools through letters,” Holland said. “I have also been in contact with coaches through text.
“I have visited Mount Marty College, Northern State University, and Black Hills State University. I plan to go on more visits this summer. When I was on my visit at Mount Marty, I talked with the track coach.”
