TAB WEST COAST TALENT
Because his Trolls routinely
faced taller opponents who controlled the action in the paint last season,
Tim Walker's priority for next season was to bring in players with more
size. To that end, the men's basketball coach signed Greg Talen, a 6-foot-5
forward from Chino, California, whom he believes will make a significant
"He's a player who will help
fill some weak spots for us," said Walker, looking ahead to his second
season as head coach at Trinity. "His size will give us more productivity
around the basket, both offensively and defensively. He understands how
to play the game, and he has the tools that will fit well in our system."
Talen, who also played quarterback
for Ontario Christian High School, admits that Trinity was not originally
on his radar screen. Once he took a close look at the College, he liked
what he saw.
"I didn't know much about
Trinity before this year, but as I learned more, I became more impressed,"
said Talen, who plans to pursue a degree in business. "My visit to the
campus was good. I liked its size, and getting away from home means a chance
to explore new things and make new friends.
"While Coach Walker recruited
me, he shared his goals and how I fit it, and I'm confident about the direction
of the team. He spoke of accomplishing great things on the court in the
next couple of years, and I believe I can make a strong contribution."
