CDRL Secretary and Operations Manager Pat Bailey said that Trezman was named rookie of the year due to his performances and mentality during the season. 

“The young fella come in and it’s like he owned it, playing A grade,” she said. 

“He showed it by scoring points and showing what dedication can do.

“He wants to succeed just like others, and I think he has a big future ahead of him.”
