Sammamish Totems quarterback Colton Boyle is well aware of the fact that a quarterback’s job goes beyond what happens between the lines on the football field.
Boyle enjoys being one of the elder-statesman on the team and has embraced being the leader for a Totems football team in transition. Former Bellevue Wolverines assistant Todd Craig is in his first season as head coach of the Totems. The Totems have a 2-2 overall record thus far.
Boyle said Craig is the real deal.
“Coach Todd is a great man. He’s done so much for us as individuals and as a team, too. He is always supporting us and encouraging us,” Boyle said.
Boyle said the Totems committed themselves to the weight room during the summer months.
“We worked out every single day. It wasn’t just during the week, we worked out on the weekends, too,” he said. “Making the playoffs is one thing that we are focused on and we’re trying to make it there. We’re going to do our best and hopefully we can achieve our goals.”
Recently the Bellevue Reporter had an opportunity to ask Boyle a few questions about his life away from the football field.
