Colin Daniels is a class of 2026 prospect who just looks the part.
The quarterback as a freshman stands in at 6-foot-4 and weighs 185 pounds. Daniels is in his first season at Christian Academy of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky.
Recently, Daniels threw his first career varsity touchdown in a 48-0 win over North Bullitt.
“I was hype and very thankful for the opportunity because you don’t get the opportunity often as a freshman,” Daniels said. “All the glory goes to God.”
Daniels also credits his coaching staff for being able to put him in a position to succeed.
“It feels great being in the hands of probably the best high school coaching staff in the state of Kentucky,” Daniels said. “The development for a younger player like myself at CAL, especially at the quarterback position, is very uncommon at other high schools.”
“I think that we will definitely add to our winning legacy in the future.”
The Centurions of CAL have claimed two state titles since 2016.
“Our goal this season is a state championship,” Daniels said. “Personally, I want to compete and get better everyday and to learn as much as I can from Coach [Thomas] Cantwell and the other coaches.”
Daniels prepared for his first year in high school by playing 7v7 with local team P2P.
“Playing for P2P prepared me for the speed of high school football and its drastic difference from middle school,” Daniels said. “We played top competition from all around the country with coaches that played football at a very high level and I soaked in as much as I could.”
“I would say 7v7 helped with my timing and it challenged me to make faster decisions.”
Daniels also attended QB Universe and Elite 11.
“I learned a lot from all of the trainers and coaches,” Daniels said. “There were a lot of good quarterbacks at both of the showcases and it was a wake up call for me and I think I have improved a great amount since then.”
As he continues to work hard and perfect his craft for one of the commonwealth of Kentucky’s best high school football teams, Daniels is a prospect to keep an eye on.
