Trevor Woods: CU Buffs’ Last Standing Player from Before Deion Sanders Era

While technically not the only one left, with tight end Louis Pasarello also there but injured, Woods stands out as a true survivor from the days before Sanders. For fans who remember those times, Woods will likely be the one they remember as the last man standing, especially as the team gears up for a promising 2024 season.

Once among only a few scholarship players remaining from the 2022 team, Woods now stands as one of just two. “It’s kind of a big deal,” Woods said. “It’s pretty cool to think about.”

But for Woods, the focus isn’t on his trivia status. Right now, he’s all about earning his spot on the field. Even though he stayed with the Buffs despite changes, he’s no longer playing safety, the position he started in last season’s opener.

Last fall, Woods made a mid-season switch to safety, which was supposed to be temporary. But now, it looks like it’s a permanent change, even though he’s open to playing both positions.

“I wasn’t sure if I wanted to play linebacker or safety, I was kinda in between,” Woods said. “I want to be able to do both and they’ve told me I can.”

The move to linebacker was suggested by Sanders himself, as the team struggled to find consistency in that position. And the coaches have been clear about how they value Woods.

“We didn’t want to lose Trevor,” said linebackers coach Andre’ Hart. “We think he’s a great kid, great asset, great teammate. He’s not going to do anything but make us better in that linebacker room.”
