A quote attributed to former coach John Thompson speaks volumes to the basketball heart and soul of Jabril Trawick. He said Trawick was the only current player tough enough to have played on Thompson's teams of the 1980's.

A man of faith and commitment, Trawick was an all-state selection from Abington Friends School, in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia. The first recruit from a recruiting class that later included Otto Porter and Greg Whittington, Trawick chose Georgetown over an offer at Florida State. "The coaching staff and the group of players that I will be playing with is a big reason why I chose Georgetown," he said.

Trawick's first experience in a Georgetown uniform came in the infamous trip to China, averaging 12 points a game off the bench in a week better known for the precipice of an international incident in the second game of the 11 day trip. As a freshman, Trawick appeared in 33 games as a reserve, with a season high 10 points and eight rebounds against South Florida. It was not until his sophomore year that he moved into the starting lineup, starting the final 20 games of a season where he averaged 5.8 points and just under three rebounds a game, with a season high eight rebounds off the bench against Louisville.

When his three point shooting was just 24 percent as a freshman, Jabril began to work on his outside game. That number grew to 29 percent as a sophomore and 31 percent as a junior during a season where he broke his jaw against Providence but returned to action in just three weeks and scoring in double figures in 10 of the team's final 13 games.

Trawick's senior year was his most productive. Always a defensive force, his shooting picked up as well: 12 points and seven rebounds vs. Indiana, 13 and 9 versus Marquette, an a 10 point effort in the upset of Villanova that went beyond the mere scoring chart.

"His effort, his energy, he's getting beat up out there and he comes in, not necessarily scoring baskets, but making plays at the defensive end, on the boards, making passes at the offensive end, said coach John Thompson III. "It was a selfless game making plays that might not show up on this sheet." And that three point shot? Improved to to 41.9% as a senior, among the team's best.

His final college game was a memorable effort in a second round loss to Utah in the 2015 NCAA's. There was a sense that Trawick knew his college career was ending, and did all he could to continue it.

"I'm disappointed, but I still have my head high," he said after the game. "Surprisingly, I didn't cry or anything. I had a great time. It's been a great experience."
