Trent led his Lakeville North hockey team to the first undefeated season in over 30 years while also compiling the greatest single season record of high school hockey in the state of Minnesota. On paper he was the IT GUY…but the reality was he was incredibly unhealthy, overweight, broke, depressed and fearful in life. On this episode of “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast Trent shares his experience with deep mental and physical changes. His is a story of a broken person who found a way to bring about transformation, even in a perfection-driven society.

I met Trent when we were both in college at Miami University. Not only was he a talented, hockey player – he was always the life of the party – I remember him cheering me to on to sing the national anthem from a roof top at “24 by 12,” a Miami hockey tradition or telling making us laugh in the back of the classroom. Believe it or not, he did go the classes, though as he says himself – he seldom took a note, which is why he’s so proud to be a first time author, Assault on Average, coming out this fall.
