Trevelin Queen: My sophomore year of high school, I got moved up to varsity basketball for the last playoff game. Then, I moved to Florida as a junior but I didn’t get to play because I transferred too late. So I missed a whole year. I came back to my old high school as a senior in Maryland. We had a new coach. But then I played only nine games under him. I continued to work out in the summer. I didn’t have any real offers so I went to play at the community college where my AAU coach was coaching. I got a little better out there. Then I went out to California, where I was in the third-richest county in America, Marin. It was like, a burger and fries were $20. I can’t afford that. That was a struggle. I ended up going to military school. Lord knows how I ended up there. My uncle emphasized it. But it turned out it was a good school for education and for basketball.
