Boyle enjoys running the show as signal caller

Sammamish Totems quarterback Colton Boyle utilizes his athletic ability in the backfield

Sammamish Totems quarterback Colton Boyle has led his team to a 2-2 overall record through the first four games of the 2014 season.

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.

 

Bellevue Reporter: What is your favorite movie of all time?

Colton Boyle: I like Star Wars and also like the newer Star Trek movies.

 

BR: How many text messages do you send per day?

CB: I probably send around 100.

 

BR: What is something about you that nobody would know?

CB: In the fifth grade I got a fourth-place medal in the state cup stacking championships.

 

BR: What kind of music are you listening to the most in your iPod right now?

CB: A little bit of country music, a little bit of religious music and a little bit of rap music, too. I listen to a little bit of everything.

 

BR: Who is your idol?

CB: I try to focus my game off of the running quarterbacks in the NFL. I like to run and throw out of the pocket.

 

BR: If you could pick one person to go to dinner with, who would it be?

CB: I would go with Beyonce Knowles.

 

BR: What is your favorite hobby away from football?

CB: I like to swim at the Samena (Swim & Recreation Club)

 

BR: What is your favorite eatery in Bellevue?

CB: I like Chipotle Mexican Grill. It is a place you can go and eat with all of your friends.
