Opposing coaches call Trussell “disruptive.” A blue-collar, hard-working type, Trussell is blessed with an explosive first step. Both of his two older brothers played at Martin before landing Division I scholarships, so Trussell knows the drill.
“He’s a delightful young man,” said Martin coach Bob Wager. “He had a terrific career here at Martin and we are very proud of him. He was selected to our leadership council by his teammates, which is a very big deal here and shows you what kind of person he is.”
