This past week I interviewed Trevor Dzama who not only is one of my friends, but also has had a standout lacrosse career at Moravian University so I decided to get an insight from Trevor to see what led him to lacrosse and how he was able to dominate on the field. Dzama completed his career playing in 53 games, and even with a shortened season in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions, he has been able to make a name for himself not only at Moravian but across the Landmark Conference and nationally. He holds the school record for total career points standing at 203 points, registering 75 goals, 128 assists, and picked up 69 ground balls. He has earned numerous accolades including holding the Landmark Conference record for total number of assists, which also surpasses the Moravian record which was previously held by Clint Quedenfeld with 124. Additionally, he has earned Landmark Conference Player of the Week in 2024, Landmark All-Conference 2nd Team in 2024, and been on the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Team of the Week in 2022, 2023, and 2024.

What position do you play and what did you/are you studying? 

Attack, and majored in History.

How/when did you start playing lacrosse and how did it lead you to where you are now? 

I started playing lacrosse before I learned how to walk just by throwing with a stick in my house, but I started playing for real in kindergarten. Obviously starting that young I have gotten very good at the technical skills of lacrosse just by playing for so long but it has also gotten me to a point where I have seen everything that could ever happen on the lacrosse field so that I feel comfortable in any position.

What inspired you to pursue lacrosse at the collegiate level, and how/why did you choose Moravian? 

I think the interest in me as a lacrosse player after my junior year of high school from college coaches really inspired me to play at the collegiate level. For much of my high school career I was undersized and not good enough to play varsity lacrosse so I didn’t ever think I would play in college, but after seeing how many coaches were recruiting me from DI to DIII after my junior year, I felt it would be a waste of my talent to not play at the next level. I chose Moravian because I liked the campus and the city of Bethlehem a lot.

Throughout your college career, what do you believe has been the key to your success both individually and as a member of your team? 

I think my knowledge of the game has been a big help in college as the game is much faster than in high school. Second is the confidence I have in myself and my abilities which is something that I think is vital in team sports. As a member of the team, my leadership abilities and selflessness has helped create both individual and team success.

As a leader on your team, what role do you play in motivating and supporting your teammates to achieve their best both on and off the field? 

In our current leadership group, I have found that where I can most effectively help our team is through individual leadership. Some of our other captains are quite good at motivating an entire team, but I think I really help our team by getting the most out of every individual player, whether that is through encouraging them to be their best or just helping them through tough times at practice and in games.
