What's something no one would believe about you? That I can be a very spiritual/religious person.

Who do you admire most, and why? Anyone who has fought to defend our country in the armed forces. Being willing to give your life for the freedom of others is the ultimate sacrifice anyone can make.

What's your favorite part of your sport? When the official tells you to stand in your lane and the stadium starts to quiet down, I shake everyone's hand and wish them luck, then he tells you on your mark, and everyone does their stretch before getting into the block and the crowd quiets even more. Then the amount of nervousness you get when you are staring at the ground before he tells you to get set and the area is entirely quiet. then you get set and the gun goes off and all the nerves are gone instantly.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?Graduated from college after a successful college track career, former Olympian, and working a good job as an athletic trainer.

CREDENTIALS: Collin opened his 2013 season in impressive fashion, winning the high and intermediate hurdles at the Maysville Panther Invitational. He ran 15.84 in the highs and 42.20 in the intermediates. He also placed third in the pole vault.
