Coaches Corner Coach Snoop says:

 

First of all I would like to say that we had a good week of practice, the boys practiced hard.  With the game on Sunday, I feel that this was the first time we actually played as a team rather than individuals. It was proven with this game for we played as a unit! Keep up the good work boys!

Attention: There are still a few players that need Jobs and billets, if you or anyone you know is able to help the players with these things it would be greatly appreciated! Contact parents@calgarycolts.com and they will hook you up!

 

 

Colt of the Week:

 

NAME: Logan Wall

NUMBER: 90

POSITION:  D-Line

AGE: 18

 

 

COACH SNOOP’S COMMENT:  “Wall is an exquisite young athlete! He accomplishes almost every task we ask him ranging from the D-line to special teams. We are extremely grateful to have him on the Colts team and look forward to what else he has to bring.”

 

POSITION COACH:  Coach Scratch is one of Logan Wall’s position coaches.  “Wall is an outstanding player. His plays are always consistently at the highest level. He plays with high energy high tempo and high motor. Not only does he play exceptionally on defense but he also plays on almost every special team, which is pretty impressive. Wall is emerging as one of our young leaders. The future is incredibly bright for Wall. You’re a freak Wall!” (Inside joke between Coach and Player)

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A COLT:  This is Logan’s Rookie year with the Colts.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY OR MOMENT BEING A COLT:  My most memorable moment as a Colt would be when I attended main camp. What I most enjoyed was my first ice bath, you wouldn’t believe how cold that is!

 

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TOO IN THIS 2014 SEASON:  The thing I am most looking forward to this year is playing the Saskatoon Hilltopers, for their Quarter back used to attend the same High school as me; and I really just want to hit him on the field.

 

WHO’S YOUR FOOTBALL IDOL? I don’t have a favorite football idol sadly.

 

FUN FACT: My last meal would a toss up between a nice steak and potato dinner or pizza and cookies, it’s really a tough decision they are both just so good and satisfying!
