Short and Insufficient Profile: Trey Bowland III

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.

We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

It was either the large mugshot, or tiny action shot. Complain accordingly. 

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–5’10”

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Steve Tasker, special teams extraordinaire.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Well, he’s from Knoxville. I guess now we’re even for Scotty Hopson and Chris Lofton, eh UT? Also, according to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, his high school’s Latin motto is grammatically incorrect. In addition, he lettered for his high school team in the eighth grade.

Something we made up about him: He has the most redundant name in history.

Items of legitimate interest: Carried the ball twice last season against EKU for nine yards. Described as a “shifty” back, and was twice named scout team player of the week in his redshirt freshman season. Made the All-SEC Academic honor roll, and rushed for 122 yards on 24 carries in a JV game.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Probably won’t see much time again this year, as the backfield is awfully busy. Perhaps he’ll be a special-teamer, like his new idol Steve Tasker!
