In my Game of the Week, we have two teams that are going to be battling it out to play in the District One Championship against the winner of (2) Strath Haven vs (3) WC Rustin. Last season Plymouth Whitemarsh and Upper Dublin met in the quarterfinal round and PW came away with a 42-36 overtime victory.  I took some time this week to sit down with each starting quarterback to ask some questions that have been on my mind. Here is what transpired.

Mayhem: What’s your greatest accomplishment as a football player?

Colin: Making the all-state team as a junior and winning the district championship as a sophomore.


Mayhem: What’s a time you can remember of when you overcame adversity as a football player?

Colin: Outside of a game, I was playing through covid and every week not knowing what to expect and knowing your season could end any second. In a game, probably North Penn week 3 being down 2 scores with only 2 minutes left and then scoring twice to take back the lead and winning the game.


Mayhem: Do you have experience playing other sports? If so, what’s your favorite sport besides football?

Colin: Yessir I’m an all-league basketball player as well and we won the league championship last year!!


Mayhem: What are your future plans after high school?

Colin: Play ball in college, continue to learn, and then become a coach.


Mayhem: Do you have a pregame routine? If so, what is it?

Colin: For my routine, I’ll always have a pack of skittles then rewatch the playlist I made for myself. Then I’ll head out to the field go through my warmup and just lock in for the game.                                                       


Mayhem: What feelings arise when thinking about playing PW again in a rematch of last year?

Colin: I mean I still have that bad taste in my mouth from last year, our whole team has been thinking about it. We worked our butts off this off season, and we are no way close to satisfied yet. We know this team has what it takes and were looking forward to proving it Friday night.


Mayhem: What advice would you give incoming freshman when it comes to your playing experience?

Colin: I would tell any freshman coming in to take care of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves. In other words, control the controllable. Make sure you’re watching the most film on the team, make sure you aren’t skipping reps in the weight room, make sure you’re taking care of your body, make sure you’re not coming in last in sprints. It’s all cliche stuff but the people that consistently do all those little things at a high level are the people that are happy on Friday nights.
