Boys Student Athlete: Colby Hamson

colby hamsomColby Hamson is a senior at Bear River High.  Colby is a multi-letter winner in Cross Country and Track. This fall Colby is serving as varsity boys captain on the cross country team for the 2nd year in a row.

Colby has a great love for his teammates and is respectful to his coaches. He works incredibly hard and is a great communicator. Colby brings a lot to the table for the boys team including having fun. Colby recently led the boys team to a 3rd place finish at the Century Challenge where he also took medalist honors with a 4th place finish. Colby is coming off a region title in the 1600m as well as qualifying for state in the 800m with a runner-up finish.

Colby has high goals to be the individual region champion at the upcoming Region 12 meet and also to lead his team to the Region title and qualify for state.  “Colby has been an outstanding part of our cross country program. All the younger boys look to his example and he has been such a privilege to coach and get to know as a young man.  Colby is a great student and even a better person.  He is the heart and soul of our team.”

Dan Line, Head Boys Cross Country Coach

I have had my eye on Colby for some time now, knowing he would definitely be in this position!  He is everything we look for as an example of what we want from our student athletes. He is a great student as shown by his 4.0 GPA with an impressive 31 ACT score! In addition he is an excellent example of the hard working, humble, honest, team oriented athlete we wish all are athletes exemplified!

I have watched him come in as early as 5:30 in the morning and stay late in the evening to improve his talent and skill level. Colby understands what it takes most people way past adulthood to understand and that is “Success is yours when you work your hardest to become the best you can become.”

I want to thank Colby for always representing our school with dignity and class and for setting such a  great example of what we want in our student athletes!  I know Colby is going to be a great success in life as well  as the rest of his high school career.
