Streets Takes Quarterback Role Seriously
Trey Streets is described as being natural both on and off the field.
As a senior and starting quarterback for the the Valley Lumberjacks, Streets takes his role as a leader very seriously. He knows that his role as quarterback comes with a lot of responsibilities but he feels that he is up to the challenge.
“(Being the quarterback) is a big responsibility. You have to handle everything and you have to lead your team. I can be a good leader and I can control the offense,” said Streets. “I try to handle things on and off the field especially when people get into arguments and some people in school get in trouble.”
Streets has been playing football since the first grade. He got his love of the sport from his dad, who also played. Outside of loving the game and the atmosphere that goes along with it, Streets loves to hit people.
Though, one of his favorite memories was when he broke the school’s single game rushing record his sophomore year.
Second year head coach Shane Highley actually coached Streets when he was in the third and fourth grade.
“We knew when he was little that he was going to be a special athlete because he just is and he just keep working and works hard every day,” said Highley. “He loves the game of football and loves to compete. He’s just an all around good kid.”
Higley decribes Streets as being very coachable.
Streets proved in the Saturday, Aug. 29 game against Bridgeport Bulldogs how talented he is in the role of quarterback. He scored two touch downs on 172 yards with 13 carries. From the air, he completed six passes for 135 yards with a touch down and on defense, he made an interception.
Streets is the son of DJ and Kristen Streets.
