Jackson graduated from Huntington Beach High School in 2013 and is now playing for Division 2 Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla. He completed a stellar high school career last year while earning All-American and 1st Team All County honors. Jackson has dual citizenship status because his father, Richard, was born in Scotland.

Thirty players were selected to the Scotland team that will travel to Denver and all 30 will play in pre-games against Canada and Iroquois. Twenty-three players will be allowed to dress for the tournament (FIL rule) which will be decided by Lacrosse Scotland the day before the tournament begins. Lacrosse Scotland selected three goalies from five candidates and Trevor is the youngest of the three selected.

Trevor will train with the team in Scotland in June and the team will arrive in Denver July 4th. Pre-tournament games begin July 5th. The official 2014 FIL World Championships begin July 10th with the Championship game being played July 19th.
