Williamsport coach Charles Crews on Potts: “It is scary to imagine what could have been when you realize that Trey’s career stats were accumulated in only 31 games. His natural ability, focus, work ethic and commitment to excellence was apparent from the first time I saw him practice. He exuded a quiet confidence that you could not ignore. To Trey’s detriment, but the benefit to the other backs in school history and across the state, he lost his entire junior year and the last half of his senior year to injury, yet he still earned a full scholarship to the University of Minnesota. When he can, Trey shares his experiences with our current players, hopefully some of what he has will rub off on them. Lets not forget that he was an outstanding return man and a beast in the secondary. ”
