University of Charleston defensive lineman Trevor Gilliam is transferring to ETSU. Trevor is 6-3 272 with 4.64 speed and could play DE or TE for the Bucs. He played for Dobyns-Bennett in Kingsport before signing with Charleston (Trevor’s Hudl page). After playing one season for the Golden Eagles he can redshirt next season and play as a sophomore with 3 seasons of eligibility remaining when the Bucs resume football in 2015. Thanks to Trevor for sharing his thoughts on transferring home:
I’m so excited about ETSUs football program starting and it couldn’t of happened at a better time for me. I wanted to be able to play football closer to home, because I have a son, Mason who comes first to me when it comes to making a big decision. I’m so thankful this opportunity has come to be, because it gets me back so I can devote my time to Mason and football the two things I love most. While I get my college education to get my degree. You also can’t forget how great it will feel to be back in front of my football fans, the people who have watched me play football since little league. I’m excited about Coach Carl Torbush getting the head coaching job. I had the privilege of meeting Coach Carl Torbush before. He will make a great mentor for all the football players. To be able to practice and give it all you have day in and day out on the football field. You must have discipline, trust and most of all respect for your coaches and fellow teammates. That’s what makes a great team. That’s what I feel that Coach Carl Torbush has and represents and I can’t wait to be a part of this new era of ETSU football. Go Bucs!!
