He played college soccer at the University of Akron from 2011 to 2012.
Born in Columbus, Ohio, Trapp is a graduate of Lincoln High School and a youth product of Columbus Crew. He played just two seasons of high school soccer with the Golden Lions, but was named a high school All-American both years. Additionally, he led Lincoln to their first-ever state title in 2009 while being named the Ohio Gatorade Player of the Year, and was the NSCAA National High School Player of the Year in 2010. In 2014, Trapp had his number 20 jersey retired by Lincoln. At club level, he played four seasons in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy with Columbus, captaining his teams at U16 and U18 level. Trapp was the Crew Academy player of the year in 2009 and 2010. He was rated as a five-star recruit by Top Drawer Soccer and as the fifth-ranked recruit in the nation by multiple outlets, eventually committing to play for head coach Caleb Porter and the Akron Zips.
Trapp would play just two seasons at Akron, making 45 appearances for the Zips and scoring once. As a freshman, he started all 23 games, putting up performances that were impressive enough to earn him nods as the top freshman player in the country, MAC Newcomer of the Year, and to the All-MAC First Team. On August 27, 2011, Trapp notched the game-winning assist on his collegiate debut against Cleveland State; he would finish the season with five assists. As a sophomore, Trapp was named to the All-MAC First Team for the second consecutive season, and was named an NSCAA Third Team All-American. He tallied three assists in 22 games, and also scored his only collegiate goal: the winning goal against Bowling Green in the MAC Tournament semifinals. Akron won three MAC titles during Trapp's two years with the program, two regular season and one tournament, and qualified for the NCAA Tournament in both seasons.
On December 13, 2012, it was announced that Trapp had signed with his hometown Major League Soccer club, Columbus Crew, as a Homegrown Player. He became the fourth HGP signing in club history, following in the path of Aaron Horton, Matt Lampson, and Ben Speas. After missing the early part of his first season while on international duty, Trapp made his professional debut for the Crew on July 7, 2013, starting and playing the full ninety minutes in a 1–0 victory against Portland Timbers; he was named as the club's man of the match after completing 86 percent of his passes. Trapp started the final sixteen matches of the season for Columbus, earning a postseason nod as the club's Breakout Performer of the Year.
Trapp received his first call-up to the U20 national team in January 2012, part of a training camp held in Florida. As the camp did not include a match, Trapp had to wait until June 6 to make his official debut for the team, starting a 4–2 defeat against Uruguay at Estadio Gran Parque Central. Trapp was named in the American squads for the 2013 Toulon Tournament, the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, and the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He scored his only goal at U20 level on February 26, 2013, providing the goal to send the U.S. to the U20 World Cup at the expense of Canada in the CONCACAF Championship quarterfinals, and was selected to the tournament's Best XI. Trapp capped his time with the U20s at the World Cup, playing all 270 minutes and captaining the side against France, although the United States failed to progress out of the group stage. He scored one goal in 21 appearances at U20 level, and was named as the U.S. Soccer Young Male Athlete of the Year in 2013.
Ahead of his second professional season, Trapp was named as the vice captain for Columbus, serving as understudy to Michael Parkhurst. Trapp wore the captain's armband for the first time on May 17, 2014, captaining the Crew in Parkhurst's absence against Portland. He became the first Homegrown Player in MLS history to wear the captain's armband in a league fixture, and at 21 years old was the youngest captain in league history. Trapp set a number of other firsts throughout the season: he received his first red card on May 4, part of a 2–0 defeat against Sporting Kansas City, and scored his first professional goal on September 13, part of a 2–2 draw against Houston Dynamo. He made his postseason debut in the conference semifinals, starting both legs against New England Revolution. Additionally, Trapp was selected to take part in the 2014 Major League Soccer Homegrown Game, alongside his teammate Lampson. Trapp finished the season with one goal in 31 total appearances.
Trapp's 2015 season was defined by absences at club level, both for injury and international duty. His first serious injury with Columbus was suffered in April, a concussion that saw him miss thirteen total matches stretching through the end of June. Trapp then missed multiple matches in the fall, stemming from two call-ups to the United States U23 national team. He was at his best in the postseason, starting all five matches as Crew SC made a run to MLS Cup 2015. There, Trapp tallied a shot and committed three fouls as Crew SC were defeated 2–1 by Portland. He made 25 appearances during the season.
Although he had already earned his first senior cap, Trapp was called up by the U23 national team for the first time in March 2015. He was a part of the team that placed third at the 2015 CONCACAF Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship, and was then called up to take part in the 2016 CONCACAF–CONMEBOL play-off against Colombia. Trapp wore the captain's armband for both games, culminating in a 3–2 aggregate defeat for the Americans that sent Colombia to the Olympics. He earned seven caps while eligible at U23 level.
Trapp made his debut for the senior national team on January 28, 2015, in a 3–2 friendly defeat at Chile. He came on as a substitute for Mix Diskerud in the 60th minute. Although he earned just one cap in the next two years, Trapp was called back into the side by Dave Sarachan in January 2018. On his first-ever start for the U.S., and just his third cap, Trapp wore the captain's armband against Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 28. He would keep the armband for the next few matches for the United States, notably a 1–1 draw with eventual 2018 FIFA World Cup champions France on 9 June.
Trapp is of Greek descent through his maternal grandfather, a former semi-professional footballer in Greece. In May 2018, Trapp became a Greek citizen and acquired a Greek passport, potentially allowing him an easier move to a club in an EU country.
On January 31, 2020, Trapp was traded to MLS expansion side Inter Miami CF. In exchange, Columbus received $100,000 in General Allocation Money and an international roster slot.
Wil was born to John and Liz Trapp.
