The AJC already has a story up on him, so I suppose a post from me can't jinx him much more. Searels makes it sound like he should get some late game reps this Saturday.
I'm not going to go too far and claim Trinton is going to be a starter by Arkansas, as some posters do on the AJC Blog. In fact, I am somewhat superstitious, so I'm not going to say, what, if anything, Trinton is going to do this weekend or any weekend. Still, I can't help but cheer for this kid given the tremendous adversity he's faced and the steps he's taken to overcome that adversity.
I don't want to jinx the kid, but, frankly, I wanted to congratulate him for what he's accomplished already -- regardless of whether he makes it on the field Saturday, or ever again. No doubt he has learned a tremendous amount about himself, and his own personal resiliency and tenacity -- important characteristics for any young person to develop in order to succeed over the course of life's trials and tribulations. He deserves congratulations and praise for the work effort regardless of the ultimate results on the field. Let's keep our fingers crossed/keep him in our prayers/yell loudly if he gets in the game -- whatever your style. I want to see a return to those 2007 dance moves from the big man. Great work Trinton. DGD.
