Bill Mancebo's Player Spotlight: Trevor Gee
This week the spotlight finds Fremont's Trevor Gee.
Baseball is pretty much everything for this young man. Gee, 10, has been fascinated with the sport since he discovered T-ball at age four.
Covering second base and the outfield comes natural for Trevor; he currently plays for the Niles Centerville Little League Major Rangers and also travel ball for the Fremont U-10 Reds. Having some experience in the Fremont Soccer League as a midfielder, and a little grid iron play for the Fremont Football League Giants was just enough to let him know that baseball is the one for him.
A fifth grader at Parkmont Elementary, Gee doesn't have a lot of spare time so he utilizes his favorite subject of recess to play hard, helping to keep him in peak condition.
Trevor also has another favorite at Parkmont, it's his teacher Mr. Boyer. When asked why, he says that Mr. Boyer has "a great sense of humor" along with "cool spikey hair." The next subject in the lineup is math and he will take those lessons with him to maybe be an astronaut and fly shuttles for NASA someday.
Life is good for Trevor, and all of these things that surround him play second fiddle to his one true passion and that's baseball. If it goes his way he'll be a major leaguer soon and be winning games for his chosen team; none other than the Oakland Athletics.
Finding a bit of spare time is tough, but when he can Trevor will focus on a bit more baseball by playing catch with his Dad or sometimes the two will head out for a little man time with some bass fishing. When the sun goes down, he'll also sport a little video gaming with Call of Duty Modern Warfare II on his Xbox Live, competing against his pals.
When the bell rings for dinner, KFC spicy chicken wings always hit the spot, then it's back home for some warm brownies freshly made by his mom or sister.
