At the age of 14 Trenten was struck by a car resulting in the amputation of his right foot. His child hood dreams of being a professional athlete did not stop. Soon after his amputation he went on to competing for his high school Volleyball team, Wrestling, Racing Motocross and MMA. While attending Saddleback Community College his prosthetist Gary Yamamoto encouraged him to attend an Ossur, CAF running clinic that hosted some of the fastest Paralympians. It was there that Trenten learned about Paralympics and had his eyes set on competing at the Paralympic Games. Shortly after Trenten trained under Saddleback College coach Mark Blethen and with Long Beach club Evo Gary Cablayan. Both coaches pushed Trenten to keep training hard and staying focused. Trenten shortly after attended Azusa Pacific University training under Kevin Reid and graduated with a BS in Exercise Science. After trying many track and field events in College, Trenten moved to Arizona to work with Dan Pfaff focusing on the 100m, 200m and Long Jump. In 2017 Trenten left Arizona to move back to California and start working with Jeremy Fischer focusing primarily on Long Jump.
