Morrison’s Trevor Hughes – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Stillwater Medical Center Clinic of Morrison

Morrison High School’s Trevor Hughes started playing baseball as soon as he could walk. Starting in T-ball, Hughes is now the starting catcher for Morrison. “Catcher is my favorite position. I haven’t really ever played much else, especially in high school. It keeps me in the game mentally and physically all the time and I love that about the spot. I also play varsity football for Morrison and play outside linebacker and running back,” said Hughes.

Being close with his teammates on and off the field is a big reason Hughes loves representing his school. “I love our bonding together. In Class A sports, it’s difficult to build an elite team every single year, but I can honestly say the relationships that I have built with my guys go far beyond sports and will last a lifetime,” said Hughes.

Away from sports, Hughes is involved in FFA, competing in Farm Business Management CDE contests. “Academics are the most important part of my life. I believe you cannot play baseball forever and it is our job to work hard in the classroom and reap the benefits of a college degree. I plan to attend Oklahoma State University and major in Mechanical Engineering: Petroleum,” said Hughes. “I have always been math-minded, so I definitely have to choose math as my favorite subject. As far as which math, I enjoyed all math classes I took. My favorite teacher was definitely Hillary Patterson, who taught Algebra II my sophomore year in high school.”

Family brings it all together for Hughes, as well as an administrator at school. “I would definitely say my parents have a great amount of influence on my life, as well as my superintendent, who I assist in the mornings when I do not have class. All three of them know the value of hard work and my parents have raised me with a good work ethic. I believe work ethic and thorough thinking is vital to being successful in life and I am blessed to have those three people part of my life that share that belief,” said Hughes.
