Which T&T player had the same first name as our current coach.

Otto ?
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

First name? Last name? Or both?

I have a feeling is only the first name?  :)

I going with Otto Wilkes - midfielder.

This is what the Gleaner had to say about him when he came to J'ca with the TT national team in 1935:

O. WILKES who is from the Queens Royal College team, and who also plays at left half, is perhaps one of the finest all-rounders of the team. Apart from his knowledge of Trinidad and inter-Colonial football, he has also the experience of seeing the game as it is played in England, having visited the mother country on two occasions. Besides representing Trinidad on several occasions in big games, inter-Colonial and otherwise, he has the distinction of being the old old skipper for both cricket and football of Queens Royal College in 1933, during which year the College's team, under his captaincy made the record and history in the school's sporting annals by winning the trophies for both games. He is also the winner of the "Krowlys" championship cup for athletics at College in 1933. He is, in addition, a fine middle distance runner, one who is considered, at present, in the front line of quarter milers of Trinidad.

"I am pleased to be in Jamaica," he said, "and trust that we shall be successful in our venture. I am also looking forward of having a happy and enjoyable stay here, and my sincerest hope is that we 'lick' Jamaica."
