Add another award to the trophy case of Mercer County standout Trevon Faulkner, as he was named Cats Pause pre-season district five player of the year last week.
Faulkner is known for his skills on the basketball court, his athleticism and his will to do whatever it takes to win, but it is his football ability that takes the headline this week
Faulkner talked about the award.
“It’s an honor to be named preseason player of the year,” said Faulkner. “I didn’t really think I would be doing what I’m doing, but I just thank God everyday for blessing me with this talent.”
Faulkner played in nine games his junior season scoring five receiving touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball, and tallied seven interceptions on the defensive side, which led to 113 interception return yards. Faulkner was second on the team in touchdowns scored and first in interceptions. Faulkner also had 69 tackles last season.
It is safe to say Faulkner is a dynamic player and his athletic ability and talent are through the roof.
“I’m just trying to improve and get better everyday in practice,” said Faulkner. “And for our team I just want to get better and become a family during this season and hopefully win a couple trophies on the way.”
