High School: Vicksburg, B
High School Coach: Thomas Marchese
College: Western Michigan University
Colin is the son of Michael and Amie McCaw. He has two sisters, Ashley (24) and Emilie (21), who are avid football fans.
Colin’s passion and love for the game of football started very early, when at age five he would choose to watch ESPN rather than Saturday morning cartoons. He started playing rocket football at eight. “One of Colin’s fondest memories was playing at Waldo Stadium in seventh grade.” Colin was brought up to varsity as a sophomore to play corner and also contributed as a wide receiver. He was on the first team to qualify for the playoffs in 20 years. He was named second team All Conference. Colin started both ways as a junior, enjoyed a return trip to the playoffs and was named First Team All-Conference defensive back.
Colin returned for his senior year and was named captain, switched positions to safety and played wide receiver and wildcat. He led the team in tackles (89), and set the Wolverine Conference record for receptions (56) while totaling over 1,200 all-purpose yards and 7 td’s. He was named First Team All State as a specialist, honored as the M-Live Dream team Defensive Player of the Year and was awarded All Conference for both offense and defense.
Colin was a multiple sport athlete all four years of high school earning 10 varsity letters (football-3, basketball-3, track-3, and lacrosse-1). Colin was All Conference for basketball his junior and senior years and part of the All State 4×200 meter relay team as a junior.
Colin will continue his playing career at Western Michigan University.
Colin thanked “My whole family, Coach Marchese, Coach Harvey, Coach Blaesser, Coach Deal, Coach Groff, Coach K-13, Coach Hiller, Coach McGuire, Coach Gajos, Coach Smith, Coach “Kach”, Coach Roy, and all of my coaches through the years.” Colin also thanked his teammates and the Vicksburg Community for their support.
