While it remains to see exactly what type of role Trenton Picott will have for Coach Mike Robinson at South County this year, we do know that he has a chance to make an impact this year as he continues to grow and develop. The 6-foot-4 forward is a versatile and efficient scoring threat, both inside and out, but also showed that he can potentially defend at a high level. Picott spoke more on his overall game and goals during a recent interview with Prep Hoops.

PH: For those who haven’t seen you play, how would you describe your game?

TP: “I’m mainly a post guy. I’ll post somebody up, get a strong bucket. If I’m open for the three, I can knock it down or take it to the cup.”

PH: What’s the best coaching advice you’ve received? Who was it from?

TP: “Coach Mike (Robinson). He’s telling me that I gotta keep working hard. Telling me to do my pushups every night because I gotta get stronger.”

PH: How many push-ups do you do every night?

TP: “He tells me to do at least 100, but I max out at 150. I’ll do 50, take a break, and repeat.”

PH: What are your short and long term goals?

TP: “I want to play division one basketball in college. After college, I don’t know yet.”

PH: What’s the most underrated part of your game? 

TP: “My ball-handling.”

PH: What do you think your role is going to be like this year?

TP: “To get a lot of rebounds, come in with a lot of energy, and just play hard.”
