Wilson wants competition

The storied program at Evangel Academy has produced many great athletes that produce at the next level, and this year's Eagle tam looks no different thanks to the great prospect class headed by Trey Wilson. The 5' 11", 175 senior is causing college coaches to drool over his talents and abilities that have positioned Evangel to make another playoff run.

Trey's hard work and dedication he credits back to his coaches. "The coaches are great and make sure that we play the best against the best competition," Wilson said. "We shouldn't lose a game this year; we have a very young team." Trey stops short of guaranteeing that he would lift a championship trophy, but a huge smile always graces his face while he discusses it.

At the next level, Trey is looking for the opportunity to convert from his current high school position to play defensive back. This change he feels would allow him to show his great man coverage skills. Last season, Wilson recorded 33 tackles, four interceptions and broke up 21 passes, plus he had one kick return for a touchdown.

Wilson attended the ULM 7 on 7 camp over the summer, during which he was seen showcasing his blazing 4.43 40-yard time. He seemed to allow receivers to gain a step on him, just to allow the play to be "fair." Evangel won the camp as the hands down best passing team in attendance.

Currently Trey has offers from La. Tech, SMU, TCU, Tulane, and ULM. Trey is looking to make his decision soon, to get his next level situation decided and focus on leading Evangel to another state championship.

"Conference is a big issue, but I just want to go to school and get good play time and play good competition." Hopefully the recent win over Alabama and the team's .500 record is enough to show that the competition and prestige are just down the road in Monroe and will be adding more great lines to his athletic resume this fall with the Warhawks.
