Clint Trickett Biography
(American Football Player)
Birthday: March 19, 1991 (Pisces)
Born In: Tallahassee, Florida, United States
Clint Trickett is an American football player who went to earn fame and recognition as a coach. He laid the foundations for a scintillating career as a gridiron player and as a coach by playing college-level football, first representing Florida State University (FSU) and thereafter, West Virginia University (WVU). It was his father Rick Trickett, a veteran offensive line coach with many years of professional experience, coaching quarterbacks and starters at WVU and FSU, who inspired Clint to take up gridiron football. Clint started playing while he was in North Florida Christian High School in Tallahassee, Florida and emerged as a promising college football player, eventually choosing FSU over South Florida, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Arkansas, and other universities. He was redshirted in his freshman year as a Florida State Seminole player but took the field soon after with enthusiasm and performed robustly while standing in for EJ Manuel. In the sophomore year, Trickett did not get enough chances to demonstrate his skills as Manuel remained fit for most of the season. Following EJ’s departure after signing up with the NFL draft, his starting position became a tossup between Trickett, Jacob Coker, and Jameis Winston. Trickett explored the option of shifting back to his hometown and it was his experience that helped him to make it to the West Virginia University’s first-team. After suffering multiple concussions while playing for WVU, he decided to pursue a coaching career.
