The 2010-11 Freshmen


26-1 Record

During their freshman seasons, Trentman started for the 10th Region Champion, 26-1, Mustang Freshman team, while Drew Burns played exclusively Junior Varsity basketball alongside of Erik Rieger who was also “moved up.”  Burns was the third leading scorer on that JV team, with a 6.9ppg average, that went 11-8 and won the 37th District JV championship.  Both saw very limited varsity action.

The following season both played primarily JV ball as their team posted a 16-3 mark and repeated as 37th District JV champions. Trentman was the leading scorer averaging 10.1 ppg and Burns was next with a 9.1 mark.  Both Drew and Alex saw significant varsity action and factored in all 28 games. It was during that season that younger brother Alex had the privilege of playing varsity ball on the same court as his older brother Austin.  Alex averaged 6.7 ppg that year while putting up 187 points. Drew Burns averaged 4.8ppg and contributed 133 points.


Super Showcase & AAU Nationals

For the next two years Burns and Trentman held down key varsity starting positions. During their 2012-13 junior season the team went 26-6, winning the 10th Region All “A” Classic and went on to play into the “A” State Semi-Finals.  They won the 37th District Tournament and advancing to the 10th Region Semi-Finals.  Burns and Trentman were second and third only to Justin Saunders during that junior season, averaging 11.0 and 12.8ppg respectively.

Both were named to the 10th Region “A” All-Tournament team, 37th District All-Tournament team and were All-NKBBCA. Trentman was named 1st Team All-Region, while Burns was tabbed All-Region Honorable Mention. Between their junior and senior seasons both played with the NoKyJazz where they competed in both the Super Showcase and AAU Nationals in Orlando, Florida. The team was coached by Kevin Bundy.

Drew and Alex dominated the scoring column their senior season

Drew and Alex dominated the scoring column their senior season. Trentman scored a whopping 549 points (19.6 ppg), scoring double-figures in all 28 games, a school record, earning him a spot in the Bishop Brossart 1,000 Points Club with a career total 1137 points – 11th best all-time. In addition, Alex would set school records for both 2-point (65.3%) and 3-Point (48.9%) percentages. He also managed a stellar 73% from the charity stripe.

Drew Burns amassed 380 points his senior season for a 13.6ppg. He too shot a blistering percentage from the field, hitting on 58.4% of his attempts. The two also dominated the boards, pulling down 425 rebounds on the season. Burns led the team in “charges taken” with 16. Drew ended his career as the Mustangs 26th among all-time leading scorers with 874 points.
