He is interested in studying physical education and hopes to become a PE/weight training teacher and football coach.
His coaches shared the following information about Colby:
First from his position coach Avery Barr:
I would like to begin by congratulating you on both completing your high school education, as well as, continuing your football career at the collegiate level. It has been an honor to coach you over the past two years! As a member of the offensive line you were always a player I could lean on to lead by example, and show our younger members the positive things that can be achieved through hard work and dedication. I look forward to seeing you succeed at the next level and wish you the best of luck in both your academic and athletic endeavors. So remember, keep a wide base, take short choppy steps, stay low, and always bring the smoke!
