RUSTON- Former Yazoo County Panther Trebor Gainwell is expected to hit the playing field once again in 2014. The former Panther has been given the chance to play football for Louisiana Tech beginning in 2014.
Gainwell is excited about the opportunity.
"I had to earn my spot on the team," Gainwell said. "It has been a lot of hard work, but it will be worth it in the future. I can't play until the 2014 season."
Gainwell has earned a spot to compete in a weightlifting competition in Texas this spring for Louisiana Tech.
"It’s a great chance to represent this great university," Gainwell said. "I hope I can finish strong in this competition."
Gainwell also plans to play some fall baseball for the Bulldogs.
"I've got a chance to play some baseball too," Gainwell said. "I'm not sure how long that will last with football coming up, but I'm going to play for them either way."
