Fifteen years of football has paid off for senior running back Treyvon Green. This summer he committed to Northwestern University and an athletic scholarship worth $52,000. He has also received offers from five other universities.
“The best thing about committing is the decision is already over and I know where I’m going,” Green said.
He said committing to a university wasn’t just about talking with scouts and coaches then playing for them. It was mainly about negotiating and knowing how to deal with all of the information.
“The first thing I talked to the coach about was how they would use me in their offense,” Green said.
In addition to securing his position on the roster, Green said he also learned “how to consult people in the line of business.”
Green has been the playing running back position since his sophomore year. His football experience, though, began at 3 in the Rowlett Youth Athletic Association (RYAA).
“I believe that sophomore year prepared me the most because it got me to where I am now,” Green said.
Green said he is looking forward to college-level athletics and classes.
Green said that his focus now is this season and sharing his experience with others.
“Be patient and let God do his work,” Green said.
