Congratulations to Toby Bollig from the Fossil Ridge/Ft. Collins high school team who was the recipient of the 2013 Doc Stabler award!
Toby’s academic accomplishments are unending – he has earned a 4.00 unweighted grade point average, placing him number 1 in his graduating class of more than 350. He is a Boettcher Scholar, United States Presidential Scholar finalist as well as a National Merit and AP Scholar finalist. Both his SAT and ACT scores rank in the top one percent, including perfect scores. Colorado is fortunate to be keeping this young man home during his college years, as Toby will be bringing his talent to Boulder next fall where he will be attending the University of Colorado next year.
Toby also shines on the athletic fields. Coach Shigekane writes: “Toby is an incredible young man, captain, best player, #1 in ground balls, second in goals and the heart of the team. He is simply one in a million.” Toby was voted 1st Team All State this season.
Off the field Toby has participated in a long list of extracurricular activities, and been involved in numerous volunteer projects that include work with his church, youth groups and other community based clubs and groups. Music and writing are two more pursuits that are an important part of Toby’s life.
This award is given to a senior student/athlete who is not only an outstanding lacrosse player, but has demonstrated excellence in the academic classroom, has displayed leadership abilities, has shown school and community involvement over and above the lacrosse field, and is considered to have overall superior personal characteristics.
This award is in honor of Doc Stabler – a leader on and off the lacrosse field, a member of the Colorado and National Lacrosse Hall of Fames, and the person, among many accomplishments, that is recognized as the founder of the Colorado College lacrosse program. He is an individual that made a difference, and the Doc Stabler awards winners are young men that already exhibit the characteristics of someone making a difference.
CLF gives a $500 check to the award winner each year and Amy Lane, President of the CLF, was pleased to present the award and check this year at the All State game on May 23.
