COACH COLE ON COLIN: "Colin is an intriguing athlete due to his limited running background combined with his high school success in both cross country and track. He probably envisions himself as a mid-distance runner that specializes in the 800m. I envision him as an extremely tough competitor. And tough competitors love to compete regardless what time of year and what type of activity. If Colin is the competitor I think he is, he’ll have a lot of success in cross country, in track and field, and at the Air Force Academy."
