He totaled a season-high six caused turnovers to go with seven ground balls in an early season win vs. Wilkes. 

When ODAC play started, Truman recorded six ground balls against both Roanoke and Virginia Wesleyan, before scoring a third quarter hat trick in a comeback upset win vs. Hampden-Sydney. He also had a four-CT, seven-GB performance vs. Randolph.

Truman was also a second team All-ODAC (and second team All-State) selection in 2017- at the time, the first in program history to earn those honors.

Bridgewater finished with new program best records overall (13-5) and in conference (6-4), qualifying for the ODAC postseason for the second straight time.
