Cook to join ‘soccer’ brother at University of the Cumberlands


Trevor Cook is following his brother, and his passion to be a doctor, to southeastern Kentucky. Cook, an honorable-mention All-District 4-AAA defender for Class AAA state runner-up Bearden, signed scholarship papers with the University of the Cumberlands, an NAIA school in Williamsburg, Ky., during a brief ceremony in the BHS East Mall May 17. With Cook’s brother, freshman starting midfielder Craig Cook, already there, “My brother definitely had some sway as to whether I was going there,” Trevor said. “He says he loves it, and it’s amazing coming from him ’cause he really doesn’t like school, so I figure if he likes it there I will too.” Also, “It’s a small school and I like the atmosphere, it’s nice,” the 17-year-old said, adding he’ll major in pre-med biology, “which has been a dream of mine forever, I’ve always wanted to be a doctor.” The Patriots, 15-4-2 record, finished No. 18 nationally in one poll and were second in the Mid-South Conference. Saying Craig’s impact was a pleasant surprise, head coach Paulo Neto added, “Bringing in Trevor was a no-brainer ... they have pretty much the same intensity. ... Trevor, as a defender, can cover a lot of ground.” Pictured beside Trevor is Meto.
