Jw what is trey blackmon up to these days ? Prolly the biggest bust as far as expectations
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
I know trey played in Canada for about half a season, and was doing well, when he quit and moved back. I heard he said that there was a family situation that he needed to take care of. He had two or three kids so anything is possible. I do not think he is playing football any longer. A true waste and a real shame.
I don't think he was as much of a bust as just a person who did not make smart moves. Last I heard, he fathered a few children and got out of Auburn quick to go to the Canadian Football League to make some money. Again, this is just what I heard years ago, so it is a bit fuzzy and could just be complete hearsay. So take it with a grain of salt because I could be completely wrong.
I'll always remember the fumble he forced and then recovered from Chris Leak and Florida in 2006 that stopped them from scoring a good ahead TD in the 4th quarter. He was one those high rated guys that ended up not coming near that rating that was placed on him.
I disagree. He was great when he was at Auburn, he just didn't stay very long.
True. I guess I spoke out of the hope he could have had more of a long lasting effect. Between getting suspended and hurt, his full ability was never truly seen at Auburn. I guess that was the point I was trying to make. Even I don't quite see that point from my previous post though. Lol. I guess that's how he didn't live up to the hype, in my eyes anyway. The off the field issues and injuries too.
Do or Do Not, There is no try!!
Auburn people feel a deep and passionate responsibility to uphold standards not written on paper, but lived from the heart.
Ooh, Peppa Jack Loves Fraggle Rock
Scot by blood, Southerner by Birth, Auburn Tiger by choice - War Eagle!
Wouldnt say he was great but he showed flashes....
I would say DeAngelo Benton, Raven Gray, and Tim Hawthorne were bigger busts.... Blackmon was great on the field, just had injuries and kids to provide for.
