This fall Trevor will attend the University of Connecticut where he will be playing baseball. Holmes has been in the program for 3 years playing with both the 17u Rays and 18u Mudhens. Below is the excerpt on Holmes from ESPN Boston:

Trevor Holmes (Governor's Academy): Arguably the ISL’s most feared hitter Holmes leads the league with four homeruns, while also batting .462 with 15 RBI through 12 games.

The 6-foot-1-inch, 215-pound catcher is described by his coach, Mike Kinnealey, as possessing tremendous bat speed and power, a dynamic arm and the mental makeup to thrive in the most stressful game situations. It was this combination of attributes which captured the University of Connecticut’s interest and earned Holmes a baseball scholarship.

In addition to catching this season, the two-year captain has also joined Governor’s pitching staff. Over 21 innings, he’s posted a 1.67 ERA with 26 strikeouts and six walks. His success has opened the possibility of pitching and/or catching for the Huskies.

"I used to pitch back in middle school," Holmes said, "But I came in here and the opportunity arose for me to be a catcher. I threw off the hill once last summer, and my summer coach liked what he saw so he put me on the mound and exposed me a little bit. It took off from there."

This summer Holmes will again play for North East Baseball, before leaving his hometown of Ashburnham for the Storrs, Conn. campus and summer classes on July 11.
