KENMORE, N.Y.-While many have pointed out that athletes in Western New York are often overlooked there aren't many people who have succeeded in getting athletes from this area recruited. Trenton White started in the Rochester area and now he's moving into this area. While being overlooked applies to all sports White's focus is football.
White is the founder and owner of Trenton White Sports His business is getting high school football players noticed. He ran a combine Saturday at Crosby Field in Kenmore. He wants players to understand that student in student athlete comes first. "I want the kids to understand there's no difference between I,II, and III three football. The bottom line is that's always second to education."
White believes there are many reasons this area is often overlooked including a lack of knowledge of how the whole process works. "If you can think back to any of your years in high school or watch football the last couple two years how many good players are you still seeing in the streets and not playing college football ? A lot of them. A lot of them fail because they don't know the clearinghouse structure, the coaches don't take them to camps, you have to go to camps.Western New York falls behind
everyone because they don't go to camps or seven on seven combines."
White uses his son as an example of a player being overlooked, until he got with the program. "My son is a great example. Trenton White plays for Kenmore West. A great receiver, didn't get many looks, took him to one tournament and the colleges have not stopped calling. A 6'3" receiver, he'll be signed or committed early next year or late this year."
