Senior short-stops are generally the driving force of the infield, and four-year starter Colby Collier has been a constant for the Arrows defense.

“Hinds is where I want to be,” Collier said. “I know Coach Temple can get me to the next level. That’s what he does; he’s proven that before.”

During his junior season, Collier hit for .319 amounting 30 hits and 20 RBIs. Hitting in the 2-spot, Collier had 7 doubles and 12 stolen bases.

“I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Colby make an immediate impact as a true freshman,” Clinton’s head baseball Coach Trave Hopkins said. “His glove, aggression and passion for the game is only just a small piece of what makes him a great player.”

Collier shined the last three years on the defensive side of the ball with a consistent fielding percentage, with his junior year coming in at .907 and sophomore year coming in at .922.

Earning his first start as an eighth grader, Collier started getting attention early on. He won the Arrow Baseball Golden Glove Award his junior and sophomore years, and was named Second Team All-State his junior year.

Recently, Collier was listed as one of the top 40 seniors to watch around the state by the Clarion Ledger

Colby Collier is the son of Misty and Barry Collier.
