Name, Age: Trevor Joseph Smith, 12.
School: , 7th Grade.
Accomplishment: Trevor is a straight-A student. His favorite subject is algebra, and he has received both academic and citizenship awards while in middle school.
Key to Awesomeness: Trevor enjoys music and plays the trumpet in the CMS band, but above all, Trevor loves baseball! He started playing with Coronado Little League at 7.
Over the summer, he played on the Sedona, Ariz. Black Sox in the Xtreme Diamond Sports 12U World Series (along with Adam Weissenfels and John DeScisciolo of Coronado). The tournament was a travel ball series made up of close to 200 teams from around the country.
In the off season, Trevor worked out at the Gonzalez Sports Academy in Chula Vista with All-Star Adrian Gonzalez and his brother Edgar Gonzalez, both ex-San Diego Padres. He honed his ball skills with further instruction from current Padres Nick Hundley and Will Venable.
Off the diamond, Trevor enjoys traveling with his family. “He traveled to Costa Rica where he did volunteer conservation work. He worked with wild life and helped repair roads and trails. He enjoyed the rain forest, body surfing, snorkeling and visiting the Arenal Volcano,” said his father, JC Smith.
Trevor also played on the middle school's first lawn bowling team so he could be on the same team as his older brother Austin, who does not play baseball. “The brothers wanted to play on the same team and be a part of Coronado history, choosing lawn bowling because it was a new sport to CMS,” Trevor's father added.
Like many students, Trevor has clear future goals, which include attending Stanford University, playing baseball and being able to travel the world helping less fortunate children have better lives through sports, music and education.
Hold on to those dreams, Trevor!
