Being a COLT player
(March 6, 2020)
The goal of being a Plano Colt football player should be first and foremost "Have fun playing football"... and for coaches, it should always be our goal to make that happen for our boys every time we suit them up... flag, tackle, or just shorts and tees for conditioning drills... we need to make sure the kids have a good time and learn in a fun environment.
Deeper than that however is a set of life lessons that we hope will "make life more fun too".
The game of football teaches us so much... overcoming adversity, being prepared, working within a system, giving just a little more than you think you can give, and learning to be a dependable team mate focused on a common goal.
When I am recruiting my coaches, I don't just look for men who know the game of football, but also for two other important characteristics: 1) the ability to transfer that knowledge to young boys (not teens, or other men, but young, impressionable kids still trying to figure it all out.). 2) strong leadership qualities... that can be modeled in a Godly way for these young boys to see. (1Corinthians 16: 13-14 "Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love."
Football is a great teaching tool, and a great game--- i hope your son finds being a Plano Colt makes a positive difference in his life, long after he hangs up his cleats.

Colts Finish season at 5-3,
Enter "Gold" Level Championship Tourney
(Updated Nov 17, 2020)
After a slow 0-2 start, including a heart-breaking 0-7 loss to the reigning league champion Lions, the team turned it around to win 5 of their last 6 games, finishing in 4th place in our 9 Team league. That placed us into the upper division championship series. While we fell short in the Playoffs, losing 22-6 to the Knights in the opening round, knowing the the Lions eventually won again, shows how close our team is to having a chance to take it all.
Our offense was led in rushing by Austin McGinnis (611 Yds on 101 carries, with 7 TDs), followed by Luke Pressley (327 yds / 78 carries and 5 TD's). Our two leading receivers were Michael "K-Gun" Kowalchyk with 6 catches / 8.2 per catch and Troy Millet with 4 catches at 4.8 per clip. Luke was 12/22 passing for a 54% completion rate.
The offensive line was led in Key Blocks by new-comer Hank "The Tank" Jarrett (23) and "Big Anthony" Stern (20) , followed closely by Clinton Rayburn (18).
On the Defensive side of the ball, our three leading tacklers were Nicholas "Nicko" Corwin (36 tackles) followed by Carson Anderko (33) and new "Monster-in-the-Middle" Henrik Blersch (27) who also led the team in Tackles for Loss (15), while Nico was second (12) and tied for third were Levi Sheridan and K-Gun, with 5 each.
Austin led the team in Fumble Recoveries (3) while Ryder Reese, Carson, KGun, and Nico all had 1 each. Nico, Austin, and Luke all added an interception as well. Full Statistics for all the players is available on our TeamSnap portal under "STATISTICS".
