Trevor Everitt Commits To St. Clair Saints
Everitt, a 6’5″ left side hitter, who has been a key component of many OFSAA Chatham-Kent Secondary School teams, said that St. Clair was the best fit for him both on and off the court.
“It feels good to finally commit with St.Clair,” said Everitt. “Over the last couple years I felt like St. Clair was the school for me. When practicing with the team over the summer the coaches and players were outstanding guys and the sports management program there was the best. Right then I knew that St.Clair was for me as I could get my degree but also play the game I love.”
According to Tim Leidl, Everitt’s Chatham-Kent Secondary School coach, St. Clair College is getting a quality player, and person, who will immediately help their program.
“Trevor is a versatile player as he has played left side, right side, and middle for the CK senior boys program,” Leidl described of the Chatham Ballhawks alumni. “Coaches dream of athletes like Trevor, who is willing to put the betterment of the team ahead of personal gains.”
Everitt has demonstrated his love for the game off the court as well, as he’s taken on a coaching role this year in the Ballhawks program, giving back the same support to other athletes he feels he’s received to this point.
“I wouldn’t be able to do this if it wasn’t for my parents supporting me over the years bringing me to morning practices, tournaments, and paying for the hotels, and teams, as they played a big role in my career,” Everitt said. “It was also my coaches, Paul Amato, Dale and Ingrid Lahey, Trevor Hay, Matt Welch, Justin Markovic, Greg Houston, Shawn Jackson, Dave Phoenix, Colin Roeszler, Kelvin Coates, Brandon Jenner, and Brian and Tim Leidl that helped me improve over the years to become the player I am.”
“Without the support from my family, friends and coaches none of this could be possible. Lastly, I would like to thank my teammates over the years for helping me improve as a player and teammate on and off the court. This has allowed me to feel that I can play at any level of volleyball.”
Everitt is also an accomplished badminton player at Chatham-Kent Secondary School. He will join the Saints, who feature another CKSS alumni, Jared Cobb, next season.
This season the St. Clair College Saints narrowly missed the OCAA playoffs due to a tiebreaker in their standings, finishing the year with a 9-9 record.
