Meet Trevor Flow! Trevor is the North Hall High head baseball coach, and in his first season as head coach he is currently leading the Trojans to a follow-up playoff run after North Hall won the 3-A state title for the first time last season.
“One of the best feelings in the world was when we won that championship and I hope we can achieve that again,” said Flow, who had previously been a North Hall assistant and pitching coach for six years. “Making it to the playoffs is basically like seeing all your work come to fruition. You come into the season with goals in mind and that is always one of them. Some teams don’t get to experience that and you want to keep it in perspective and enjoy the moment while keeping the ride going. It’s a culmination of hard work, but the beginning of a new season.”
The first round of playoffs start on April 26.
Flow said he accepted the head coaching position at North Hall because he loves competition.
“I love to compete and I didn’t want to be doing something where I can’t be competing,” he said.
Trevor has been playing baseball his entire life and played college baseball in Florida at Manatee College.
When he is not coaching baseball, Trevor loves spending time with his 5 year-old son, Roman. Roman comes to all the North Hall games and loves being a part of team when riding home on the bus with his dad.
Trevor said loves having Roman at the games because it brings back a perspective for Trevor of what it was like watching the game as child.
“I love having him at the games and he loves being there with all of the guys and his friends,” he said.
We want to thank Trevor for being a part of our project and letting us get to know him a little better!
