Athlete of the Week – Colin Beatty

FREEPORT – Boylan senior soccer player Colin Beatty is our WREX Athlete of the Week. He led his team to a 4-0 win at Freeport Tuesday night, scoring a goal in the win. He leads his team in scoring, after doing the same last year. But he had to overcome a broken leg his freshman year to reach this point.

“I just felt like when i had that injury, i couldn’t let it affect my soccer abilities,” Beatty said. “I just had to come back stronger.”

Beatty brings a high energy to the soccer field. It rubs off on his teammates.

“I have to lift up my teammates,” Beatty said. “Push them more and more everyday. Just get them that energy we need every game.”

The Titans are in the driver’s seat for a NIC-10 title as the conference season winds down. Beatty hopes to lead his team on a deep postseason run after that.
