2014 Doc Stabler Award

Congratulations to Collin, the 2014 Doc Stabler award winner.

Collin’s accomplishments were evident throughout his high school career, and were brought to the leagues and the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation’s attention by his head coach Matt Thomas.  Academically, Collin graduates from Englewood near the top of his class, and is a recipient of a prestigious Daniels Fund Scholarship.  He has been honored several times as Englewood's student of the month, been selected for numerous scholar athlete awards and is a member of various educational organizations based on academic success. Collin will be bringing his talent and energy to Ft. Collins next fall to attend Colorado State University.

Collin also has been an integral part of Englewood lacrosse and school activities.  He is team captain, a leader on the field and also a letter winner in cross-country.  His coach says:  “Collin is an incredible young man, captain, and great kid.  He truly helped our team in many ways.”  Off the field Collin has been involved throughout high school with numerous academic and athletic groups, as well as extracurricular activities in the community.

Each year the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation gives the Robert "Doc" Stabler Award and a $500 check 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.

Rick Giancola from the Colorado Lacrosse Foundation was on hand to help present the award.
