His story: Natee has played football ever since the fourth grade. He played tight end for most of his career and has moved around, position by position, trying to find the right spot – anywhere from center, defensive end, linebacker, full back and running back. Despite that, he never tried out for quarterback and only started playing that position last season for the Trojans. “I want to make myself known and show people that even a big back like myself is capable of many things and is just as quick and good as the next man,” he said. In his first year at the helm, Natee led Trinity to the fourth round of the playoffs before losing to eventual state champion Allen by a late-game field goal. “We were predicted to be eliminated in the second round, so overall we were way better than what everyone expected,” Natee said. Enter the upcoming 2015-2016 season and more changes have come to in Euless as longtime head coach Steve Lineweaver stepped down and offensive coordinator Chris Jensen took over. “I expect nothing different,” Natee said. Over the offseason, Natee has been perfecting his craft and focusing on speed and agility. He's also played basketball at Trinity and is excited for his final year. As for a college future, he hasn't decide where, but wants to go to a school like Trinity – with a great tradition and education. Natee wants to major in business administration and hopes to have his own business one day.
