The featured speaker is no stranger to the event as Trevino, a three-year letter winner for the Golden Eagles from 2012-14, is back to share his story of progressing through his professional career. The Corpus Christi, Texas, native was honored as the Texas Rangers' 2016 Tom Grieve Award winner for being its minor league player of the year.
Trevino was selected by the Rangers in the sixth round of the 2014 MLB Draft and went on to win back-to-back Rawlings Gold Glove awards at catcher in 2016 and 2017. He was recently named to Texas' 40-man roster heading into the 2018 season and known throughout the region for his philanthropic work.
At ORU, he was a three-time all-conference performer and broke onto the scene as a Freshman All-American by three outlets in 2012 at third base. He earned Summit League Newcomer of the Year accolades in his first collegiate campaign before making the transition behind the plate where he thrived for his final two seasons.
