Chris Collins’ turned in a stellar performance this past Saturday against Dexter. Against a defense that was designed to stop him with double and sometimes triple coverage’s, Collins turned in 9 catches for 214 yards, 2 TD’s, and a 2 point conversion.  It was clear to all who watched the game that on that day, Collins was the most dominant player on the field. His performance has been consistent and steady all season long, and he does it not only on the offensive side of the ball but also on defense where he persistently chases down the opposing quarterbacks and ball carriers with determination. Perhaps most noticeable to his coaches and teammates is the way that Collins is starting to view his teammates as his brothers and the team as his family. To see him take the youngest and least experienced players under his wing lately has been a thing of beauty.
