5’7″ 165 lbs

High School: Mattawan, A

High School Coach: Matt Stephens

College: Western Michigan University



Trevor is the son of John and Nancy Sweeney. He has one brother, Eric, and one sister, Stephanie. Both of them graduated from Western Michigan University.

Trevor’s football experience playing for Mattawan High School has been an uphill battle. His freshman year, the hiring of a new coach, Matt Stephens, led to the implementation of a new offensive and defensive design. Trevor spent his next two years perfecting the new schemes as he joined the varsity team for his junior and senior seasons. Having exceptional offensive success his freshman and sophomore seasons, Trevor entered his junior year switching his role to free safety. At the end of a record dream season for the Wildcats, Trevor received SMAC conference and Kalamazoo area nominations for his play as his team won their first conference title since joining the league. In Trevor’s senior year, he also racked up a total of over 1800 yards and 30 touchdowns, averaging over 10 yards per carry as the Wildcats made an historic school playoff run to the Regional Championship game against Caledonia. Trevor finished his senior year earning All State, All Region, and All Area recognition and was named one of the Statewide Player of the Year Finalists.

In addition to football, Trevor played basketball and baseball. He is a member of Mattawan’s Peer Assistant Leaders program where he participates in student led facilitation and mediation.

Trevor thanked his parents, grandparents, and family members “for their unconditional support and love.” He thanked his coaches, teammates, and friends “for always believing in me.” He added, “I thank every person that has helped me on my path to success.”
