My name is Tanner Collins. I am follower of Christ, a son, a student, a friend, and an athlete - specifically in that order. Each aspect is a priority over the next and contributes to all that follow to define who I am.
I currently attend Greenbrier High School. My family relocated to Greenbrier, Arkansas after I finished my freshman year of high school. I transferred to Greenbrier from West Monroe High School in West Monroe, Louisiana.
The number one priority in my life is my relationship with Christ. I strive daily to serve Him and to be an example of God’s love, His patience, His kindness, His mercy, and His grace.
As a son, I look to my parents for guidance and for support. My parents have given me a strong set of morals and values to live by. I represent my parents, just like I represent Christ, my friends, and my team.
Learning is a lifelong journey that only ends when we want it to. We learn not only in the classroom but from everything we do and carry those lessons forward in life. My education is extremely important to me, as it will serve me long after the games of football and baseball have passed me by.
I value my friends and teammates and want to make those around me better. I look for opportunities to help my teammates and believe that the strength of a team is not a collection of individual contributions, but players who put themselves second and focus on making all of their teammates better every day.
The athlete in me loves sports. I love the competition, I love the grind, and I love the hard work that goes into being the best I can possibly be, both on the field and off.
Everything that I put before sports above, defines who I am as a team member and as a player. As a follower of Christ I strive to be an example both on and off the field. I look for opportunities to serve others and serve my team, because the games of football and baseball cannot be played without a team. I represent my parents and appreciate the ethics that they have taught me and the appreciation for hard work. I love being a student of the game and constantly am reminded that there is always someone bigger, faster, and stronger, but the capacity to learn and be more knowledgeable of the game than the player across the line from me is endless.
