Coach Toman: Tristen is a do it all athlete on both sides of the ball. Tristen will be a four-year starter on defense and is set to break the school’s career interception record. Offensively, we move Tristen all around from a slot receiver, wide receiver, and tailback. He has elite hands and will go get the ball.
