On the hardwood, Holloway has grown into a role as a starting point guard, scoring and facilitating his Roxana teammates.

“I feel like it’s very important to get my teammates open,” said Trenton Holloway following a recent 53-48 Shells basketball win over Southwestern in Roxana. “Getting (teammates) opportunities to get buckets and get points on the board.”

Not just a facilitator, Trenton has shown his knack for scoring, and really shooting. His 14 points in the win over Southwestern gave him a share of the team lead with fellow sophomore Sean Maberry.

His role as a point guard is similar to the role he plays on the soccer field, a facilitator and willing passer if need be, but more than confident in front of the goal.

But Trenton is a team player, first and foremost. When asked about his big game after the Southwestern win, he gave credit to his teammates. “We all battled hard.”

When I asked Trenton his expectations for his sophomore basketball season, he gave an answer true to that team-first attitude.

“Just keep working hard, and keep getting dubs.”

That attitude will fit in perfectly in Shell Nation.
