Trey Oyegun is staking his claim as a player to be on the lookout for in the Class of 2023. The 5-foot-11, 145-pound wide receiver/safety from Orlando, FL earned a spot on the 2019 Youth1 Freshman450.
Oyegun, who attends Orlando Christian Prep, is grateful for the national accolade.
“It feels good to be recognized, but I know I have to continue to work hard, train on weekends, train in the offseason,” Oyegun said.
Oyegun takes pride in what being a part of the Freshman450 signifies.
“It says someone out there knows what I’m capable of and the potential I possess,” Oyegun said.
Another accomplishment means a lot to Oyegun is one he received for his outstanding work in the classroom.
“Away from the field, making National Honor Society is something that I’m very proud of,” Oyegun said.
Oyegun is constantly studying athletes at the next level so that he can understand what it takes to sustain success.
“I look up to all players, because they worked hard to get to where they are,” Oyegun said. “I know it didn’t come easy.”
Oyegun describes the aspects of playing wide receiver that he enjoys the most.
“I love running routes and catching the ball,” Oyegun said. “I love being able to block to spring a RB free on the edge.”
Oyegun shares what draws him to the game of football and why he’s so passionate about his craft.
“I love working as a team to score and keep opponents from scoring,” Oyegun said. “I love the teamwork you need to be able to win games.”
Oyegun is on the upward tick. Oyegun recognizes the improvements he’s making in his game and constantly strives to make each day valuable to his end goal.
“I feel like I’m growing as a student athlete,” Oyegun said. “I’m able to run routes better than previously, make better blocks and make harder catches.”
Oyegun lists what’s upcoming on his agenda.
“Spring game at OCP. 7v7 in SOP league. USF Elite Camp, UF Elite Camp,” Oyegun said. “I’m not sure what else my dad has planned but I’m looking forward to competing in all of those events.”
Oyegun explains his strengths on the football field while also outlining the areas he intends to polish.
“I need to continue to get faster and stronger. I’m a good blocker for a WR. I run solid routes to make up for not being the fastest. I have good hands,” Oyegun said. “I will keep getting faster and stronger in the lower body.”
Oyegun is currently under the radar but being selected for the Freshman 450 could open up doors for the intriguing prospect. Oyegun is open-minded to any opportunities that the future holds.
“I don’t have any offers yet. I just want to play college ball at any level,” Oyegun said. “It doesn’t have to be FBS, FCS, D-I, D-II. Just being able to play at the next level, whatever that may be for me within God’s plan is a blessing.”
