When he isn't in the classroom or on the field, Wayne State Warrior football captain Trent Brodbeck dedicates his time to the community by doing things like rebuilding a home in Pontiac for those struggling with addiction and abuse, helping the homeless and reading to kids at elementary schools. For his dedication to serving the community, Trent earned the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team award, one of only 24 college football players from across the country to receive the honor in 2016.
On campus, Trent helps his fellow business students as a statistics tutor. His focus is on helping student-athletes through the difficult class. He is a regular on the Dean's List, and has held internships at Fiat Chrysler and Service First Logistics.
In fall 2016, Trent was part of a team of four students who worked on a real-world project for MAHLE Behr, a role that resulted in a full-time job offer with the company.
Trent graduated in 2016 with a bachelor's in global supply chain management. He currently works as a commodity buyer for electrical components for MAHLE, where he's been since January 2017.
