“He’s a super student and a great kid who has started since his freshman year, so he’s been all that and more to our program over the last four years ending his career as a captain. With all that said, he’s been so much more than that as a person. Colton is the kid that every coach wants to lead their team, and the kid that every kid’s mother wants to marry their daughter. He’s that kind of guy.” - Head Coach Bill Tierney
