HS Football: Trolliey making the most of senior season

National Sports

For Bismarck High senior Matt Trolliey, this is the moment.

“Everyone wants to go out on top their last year,” Trolliey said, “or every year.”

And for Trolliey that means playing offense and defense.

“You know we had a lot of good guys last year we graduated a lot of seniors,” Trolliey said. “And we know we weren’t going to have as much depth.”

So Coach Mark Gibson asked Trolliey if he could handle playing two positions.

“He’s a kid that you want to coach,” Gibson said. “His motor goes a 100 miles per hour. He’s a kid that as soon as you cross the white line — no matter what he does — it’s full speed.”

The Demons have blown out their first two opponents so Trolliey has had the fourth quarter off, but he has the potential to play over 70 snaps in one game.

“He’s a throw back to guys back in the day,” Gibson said. “He’s a guy that is a huge weapon for us and huge asset for us.”

To protect Trolliey from fatigue, Coach Gibson was nice enough to give his two-way player a break.

“Last year I was on every single special team,” Trolliey said. “So they took me off special teams. So that’s really my only breather.”

Because at the end of the day, Trolliey just wants to see the team achieve it’s highest potential.

“Make every tackle,” Trolliey said. “Just be there. Make a catch if I need it down the road. Make a play for my team.”

Matt Trolliey and the Demons look to stay unbeaten tonight against Minot High.
