Trawick was born on October 23, 1989 in Marietta, Georgia. He attended Sprayberry High School in Marietta and was a three-year starter and two-time All-League and All-County selection. As a senior in 2007, recorded 69 tackles, an interception, two fumble recoveries and two blocked extra points. He totaled more than 600 all-purpose yards, four touchdowns caught 15 passes for 195 yards and rushed 17 times for 156 yards during his final high school season.
After originally committing to play at Michigan State, Trawick saw limited playing time in his first two years with the Spartans. He redshirted in 2008 and recorded just two tackles in 2009.
He then transferred to Northeast Mississippi Community College in December 2009 after he was suspended from Michigan State for being present at a residence hall during an incident in which several of his teammates were charged with assault.
“My heart just wasn’t in it,” Trawick said of his time as a Spartan. “I got focused on what wasn’t important, and I needed to switch it up and get refocused again.”
On September 5, 2013, during the season-opener against the Denver Broncos, Trawick accidentally injured teammate Jacoby Jones when they collided a punt Jones was attempting to catch. The collision resulted in a right knee sprain for Jones, who did not return to the game.
On March 10, 2017, Trawick signed a two-year, $4.75 million contract with the Tennessee Titans. On January 21, 2018, Trawick was named to his first Pro Bowl as a special teamer after posting a team-best and career-high 17 special teams tackles. In the 2018 season, he made eight combined tackles.
Baltimore Ravens (second stint)Edit
Trawick’s father, George, was the head basketball coach at DeVry University in the early 1990s. He coached in the highest-scoring men’s basketball game in NCAA history, regardless of division classification. On January 12, 1992, Troy State University defeated DeVry 258–141 in a game that is considered to have established several unbreakable records.
