In 5A high schools it’s rare to have an athlete be a two sport star, but Fruita Monument senior Trey Morrill has found success in both baseball and basketball over his high school career.
He is this week’s athlete of the week.
This fall Trey signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Yavapai College. His success on the diamond has made him the player he is on the hardwood.
“What he is able to do on the baseball diamond is incredible. You know he is a very gifted baseball player and we see that on the basketball on the basketball floor as well," said Fruita head coach Ryan Hayden.
Trey’s success hasn’t come without hard work but for him it’s worth it.
“If you love something and you want to do it in the future that’s when you work hard. It becomes your love and everyone wants to continue to do what they are doing, “said Morrill.
Being one of the four seniors on the basketball team, Morrill is a leader and will do whatever it takes for the team to be successful.
“I can honestly tell you that trey just wants to win. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to go out and get the win every night, “said Hayden.
When Trey graduates in May his legacy will be left at Fruita Monument High School, but in the end it’s something else he cares about most.
“I just want to look at the end of the day when I’m older and say man I worked as hard as I could every single day, “said Morrill.
