The finals were held prior to the NLL's All-Star Game at the Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, CT on Sunday, April 28. Trevor qualified for the finals through two regional competitions hosted by the Philadelphia Wings. He secured his berth to the finals in a competition held at halftime during the Wings game on March 16 when they hosted the Washington Power.
Eight-year-old Trevor attends Chews Elementary School. His parents Matt and Michele are twelve-year Wings season ticket holders. Trevor learned the sport of lacrosse from attending Wings games and watching older brother Matt who plays for the Winslow Warriors.
Scoop N' Shoot is a skills based competition that test the lacrosse talents of boys and girls in NLL cities. The competition was open to children ages six through fourteen and was divided into four age categories.
