PARK CITY HEAD COACH BRANDON MATICH
"First and foremost, I think Vanderbilt got a heck of a football player. Colt is as tough and as hard-nosed as I've seen. He's probably the best lineman I've been around.
"Colton's a big, strong kid. He's a guy that absolutely lives in the weightroom.
"He's very explosive off the ball, gets great leverage, and has tremendous feet for a lineman. One of his strengths is the ability to turn and move laterally."
"Colt's also an outstanding young man, a good student and good person. He's been a tremendous leader for our team, one of the best I've ever coached."
