A star for Dexter High School in Michigan, Cole has grown up around the game of football. As his parents always had a ball in his hands, they also made sure to raise him with faith as the priority.

Cole says, “I’ve grown up in a Christian house and it’s always been a big deal in my family. I grew up in church and am always working on my relationship with God.”

Cole has helped lead Dexter to some of their best years in history, where they now are in a spot to compete for the Division 2 State Title this season. As Cole has been a cornerstone for the Dexter offense, he says it is faith that guides him every time that he steps onto the field.

“Faith plays a massive role in my football career because everything I’ve accomplished is because of God.”
