Demon QB to frighten opponents in two ways
By Zach West
With 4.45-speed in the 40-yard dash, Duncan quarterback Trent Wilkins has always been a threat to break open a game with a big run. His passing skills, however, once left something to be desired.
“When I first came in, I couldn’t hit anything, nothing was on time,” Wilkins said.
But after several years of work with Duncan coaches, Wilkins is heading into his senior season as a legitimate double-threat – a frightening proposition for those teams who have been demoralized by his feet alone.
“He has really improved his passing skills,” Duncan head coach Jim Holloway said. “He’s more than just a single threat now – he’s a threat to do something every time he touches the football.”
Wilkins attributes most of his improvement to a regimented summer schedule in which he worked with receivers four days a week, concentrating on timing and chemistry.
“I improved night and day. I’m hitting guys on time, in stride, with spirals,” Wilkins said. “My legs are my biggest asset, but on this level, you have to have an arm, or you’re in trouble.
