Trevon Duval exploded onto the scene this past summer on the Under Armour Association Circuit, leading a ridiculously talented WE R1 (DE) squad through the regular season with the league’s best record.

Showing off his explosive athleticism, yo-yo handle, and improving jumper, he soared up the rankings to claim the top PG spot in his class.

He’s currently playing better than ever for Advanced Prep International in Dallas, TX, and has cemented his status as one of the top overall players in the 2017 class.

Nate Bucsko caught up with Duval, asking him a variety of question about his life as a basketball player.

What drives him to be great…

TD: Winning, my teammates, and the competition. I hate to lose and I want to do everything I can to help my team. My teammates are like my brothers so I don’t want to let them down.

Hobbies outside of hoops…

TD: I play video games, hang out with friends, go to the movies. Normal teenager stuff, really.

The part of his game that stands out…

TD: I feel that I can get anywhere on the court that I want to because of my handle, and I am always hustling on both ends.
