A Day in the Life of a Baller: Trey Patterson has the opportunity to watch and evaluate many of the top players throughout the country; our Day in the Life of a Baller is a multi-part series that features a personal firsthand viewpoint look in to the life of some of the top players in the country.  Please join us in getting to New Jerseys own Trey Patterson as he battles for the nations #1 spot in the class of 2021 – he is currently rated the #3 player in the class but after a stellar year we expect things to be looking up for the all-world wing – Please allow us to introduce Mr. Trey Patterson:


What’s up everyone, my name is Trey Patterson, I’m from Somerset, NJ. I am a Rising 7th Grader in the Class of 2021.  I’m 6’5 and a wing forward. At the end of my AAU season, my team (Team Izod) went to the NYBL Championship Weekend. Even though we were under-manned with 6 players, we still handled our business out in Ohio.  My highlight game of the weekend was the Elite 8 game against Team Teague where I had 15 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists, plus padding my stats with the buzzer beater game winning shot to advance us on the Final Four.   

Unfortunately, we lost a close one to S Elite, which was a very good team that got the upper hand that game.  At end the NYBL season, we finished 4th. My teammates played hard the whole weekend such as Al-Fatir Connor(NJ), Tristian Jeffries(NJ), Malik Edwards(PA), Justice Williams(PA) and Khalil Brantley(PA). 

Trey with Montverde's Head Coach Kevin Boyle

To start off my summer, I went to the Kevin Boyle Point Guard Camp in Poconos, PA. It was good to see Coach Boyle again after he moved to Florida to coach Montverde Academy. I had a lot of fun at the camp with friends and learning new skills. It was very fun and competitive.   Coach Boyle was very impressed with me since he hasn’t seen me play since he held his camps in New Jersey a few years back.

To prepare for the CP3 camp in a couple of weeks, I have been going to my school’s basketball camp, which was a shooting and skills development camp.   The high school varsity coach, Alex Mahony runs the camp at Rutgers Prep. The camp was really fun and intense.  Coach Mahony stresses working hard, while also having fun and mingle with your friends.  

I also have been going to physical therapy twice a week, because in the winter, I had a serious hip injury caused by my rapid growth of 4 inches, in a short period of time.   But now, I just go to therapy to increase my strength and conditioning. 

See You Next Week,
Trey Patterson
