I think willie rodriguez played for both West Indies cricket and a short-lived West Indies football team.  So I'm guessing he made the TT teams in both sports.

Add Gerry Gomez and Roy Seon to that list.

Roy was a helluva footballer originally from South TT. Played football for both North and South and TT.

Was also 12th man on a TT cricket team back in the 40s.
