Colt of the Week:

 cole

NAME: Cole Meyer

NUMBER: 4

POSITION: Quarter Back

AGE: 20

 

 

COACH SNOOP’S COMMENT:  Cole has demonstrated the leader role to his fellow teammates, not by vocalizing it but by showing it. He has stepped up for his position and has studied hard to prove his skills and talents.

 

POSITION COACH:  Coach Couture is Cole’s position coach  and  says that Cole has had a great week of practice and demonstrates a lot of passion purpose, and poise which are great intangibles to be a leader for a team and QB for this level of football.  Another quality that Cole has is his work ethic; this is why Cole is the Colt Player of the week.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A COLT: 3 years

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOTBALL MEMORY OR MOMENT BEING A COLT: My favorite memory is my first start as a Colt playing against the Saskatoon Hilltopers last season. I learned a lot from that game and was able to build upon my skills and talents.

 

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR THE 2014 SEASON:  The thing I am most excited for this season is the Colts coming together as a family and building a strong bond amongst each other, which will aid us in building a winning program again!

 

WHO’S YOUR FOOTBALL IDOL? Brett Favre
