Trenton Turner is one of the best players from the Orlando, FL area in the Class of 2025.
The 5-foot-11, 280-pound Brown, who attends Auburndale, is an imposing player that works as a defensive tackle and offensive lineman.
Turner has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as winning a Heisman, two Defensive Player of the Year awards, three MVPs, a Super Bowl MVP and a Pro Bowl selection.
Turner is humbled by the accolades.
“The recognition of my awards and All-Star events means the world to me. It's the rewards for my hard work and dedication that I show throughout the season,” Turner said. “My experience when I participated in All-Star games was epic. It was a different feeling to play with the guys that I played against who are the best from other teams and combine all our talents together.”
No matter the opponent, every game Turner is determined to give it his all.
Turner is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Turner steps between the lines.
“My mindset at my position is to always go hard and to give 100 percent every time the ball is hiked on offense and defense,” Turner said.
Turner has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Turner tells why he enjoys the game of football so much.
“I just love the game,” Turner said. “I’ve played so many positions over the years but to be specific with every game every down I strive to be better at perfecting my craft.”
Turner has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life.
“Playing ball has taught me to be a team player,” Turner said. “It’s more than just a game to me. It has taught me lessons that I can carry for a long time but mainly how to handle success and failures in life.”
Turner shares his favorite football memories.
“Winning the Super Bowl and being voted by all the coaches in my league to receive the Heisman award the same year,” Turner said.
Turner takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Turner makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.
“To me the way you demonstrate being a good teammate is to work hard, always have your teammates back and build a relationship with them. Find out where we all are strong and where the weak points are at and give the maximum effort,” Turner said. “The best advice I can give my teammates is play every game like no other. Let’s always stand and never give up whether we are winning or losing.”
Turner is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.
“The best advice my coaches have given me is to play with my heart, give it my all to finish and to never give up,” Turner said.
Turner patterns his mentality after this standout.
“The player I look up to in the pros is Aaron Donald because of his work ethic and how he uses his hand work to get past the offensive lineman,” Turner said.
Turner lists math as his favorite subject in school.
“I like dealing with the numbers and the different operations,” Turner said.
Turner explains his collegiate aspirations.
“Honestly I don’t have a dream college,” Turner said. “I'm just trying to break the cycle and be the first in my family to go to college and any college that picks me will be a dream.”
Turner is striving for greatness in all that he does.
“My goal on the field is to be the best at what I do and go hard every play,” Turner said. “My goal off the field is to get good grades, eventually go to college and lead my little brother in the right footsteps.”
