For years I’ve had the pleasure of watching Wide Receiver Trevor Begue light it up on the football field. I came over in 2019 to Lake Charles. I took a leap of faith and have been blessed ever since. Trevor Begue is a name that you should know. For years he gave his heart and soul to the McNeese State program. From a plethora of awards the thing that stood out the most to me besides all the amazing catches was his character. We live in a day where it’s all about individuals. Begue has been through so much throughout his collegiate career.
Two back-to-back hurricanes and even a global pandemic. But this has not stopped him from his ultimate goal, playing on Sundays. So when I saw Trevor Begue play his last game in a McNeese Cowboys uniform it sure made me smile. When Trevor made his way from the makeshift locker room at Sam Houston State he didn’t ignore me. He greeted me with the biggest smile and thanked me for everything. That goes a long way. His character speaks for itself. He’s a team player and in my opinion, will continue to lead the Southland this fall. When Begue hit the transfer portal, I knew someone was going to land him. I took some time and spoke with him today.
What does it mean to be a Cardinal?
It feels good being a cardinal man. Just can’t wait to officially get to San Antonio and get to work.
What made you go to UIW?
I chose UIW because I had a really good relationship with the coaches over there and I feel like my skill set fits their offense perfectly.
What are you expectations at UIW?
My expectations for the fall are to come to UIW and help the team win the conference championship and then a national championship.
