One of the reasons that Concord (Calif.) De La Salle has won 149 straight games a streak that includes 30 straight post-season wins is because of attitude. De La Salle players buy into the system and when they are given lemons Spartan players make lemonade. Five-star wide receiver Cameron Colvin (6-2, 193, 4.4) is an excellent example of this.
Colvin was suspended from action due to grades early in the season. This kid didn’t mope or hang his head. Colvin got busy and took care of business.
“I didn’t let my suspension get to me like a lot of people thought it would,” Colvin said. “I used it as a positive and I got my grades up.”
“It was a wake-up call,” Colvin said. “I woke up.”
In five games Colvin has caught 23 passes for 394 yards and six touchdown receptions. He is averaging 17.1 yards per catch.
Colvin is also a very dangerous kick returner. He has brought back four kicks for scores.
Colvin has already taken one visit to Michigan and liked it a lot, but Wolverines are just one of five schools that are his finalists.
“I liked Michigan,” Colvin said. “But everyone is even.”
Colvin has had an abundant amount of offers and he has finally narrowed down his list to five schools.
The five lucky schools that are in the hunt for Colvin’s signature on LOI day are Michigan, Miami, Florida State, USC and Oregon.
“All five are great passing schools,” Colvin said. “And I know guys on all five teams.”
“I kind of want to get away from home,” Colvin said. “Being away will help me grow as a person and will give me a chance for a new start.”
