My goal is to play college ball in a highly competitive program, while getting an exceptional education.
In addition to playing varsity team sports, my schedule is packed with challenging AP and Honor classes. I am a member of my school's Key Club, volunteering at least 5 hours a month, and helped found our school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Three qualities set me apart from other student athletes.
VERSATILE. I've played every position since I started youth football, playing both sides of the ball in each game. In recent years I have played QB, WR, RB, OLB, SS. I am always willing to play any position, according to the needs of my team.
BALANCED. I have consistently demonstrated good character and leadership through the years. In fact, my head coach for the last three years, BJ Laughter, was quoted in the local paper stating, "He's steady, unshakeable. He leads by example. Cole is a wonderful young man. This is my 23rd year here. In that time, I can't name a kid with any better character."
DETERMINED. My tenacious attitude toward becoming better every day is what keeps me driven and focused. This is one of many aspects of football I apply to real life, the importance of having a solid work ethic.
I have passion for the game, along with the mental & physical toughness necessary to make a difference on the football field.
