“It was an amazing bonding opportunity. For example, I’d commit to you that I would catch 100 balls after practice, 5 game day catches, 2 touchdowns, and no missed blocks. It was our way of setting goals for the week and to getting them done. It made us closer. We policed ourselves.”    -  FORBES Article

“I've already lived through the hardest parts of my life. I've sat in the front row for the funerals of both my parents, so a broken ankle isn't anything. I'd take that any day over what I've been through”

BACKGROUND

 

& SPORTS

Cameron "Cam" Colvin  Born and raised in Pittsburg California to mother Veronica Colvin and father John Colvin, Cameron was a prep super star at power house De La Salle High school in Concord, CA. winning a variety of awards and honors throughout the country. Cameron went on to attend the University of Oregon where he started as a freshman and sophomore, but nagging hamstring injuries kept him out of the starting lineup until his senior year. In 2007 Cameron exploded onto the scene along with the high-octane Oregon offense, where he posted career high receiving numbers and led the Pac10 for weeks.

As fast as Cameron could fly past the secondary, it all came crumbling down during a game on October 13th 2007. Cameron felt and heard the gruesome crack in his right ankle and immediately knew his college career had ended. He didn’t need to see Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti wincing or hear the gasp from the Autzen Stadium crowd. Cameron knows pain all too well.

He lost both parents before he was old enough to drive. Cam’s father, John, died of acute morphine intoxication when Colvin was 6. His mother, Veronica, died of a stroke when he was 15. And his best friend, and De La Salle team mate, Terrance Kelly, was murdered two days before they were both to report to Oregon for football practice and enter college.

Cameron and misfortune need no introduction. He choked back tears as a team doctor inspected his broken ankle on the Ducks’ sideline, watching as his team went on to defeat Washington State 53-7. He peered into the stands once more, to find his family, before a cart rolled him into the empty Oregon locker room. And when his teammates returned following the game, they hovered around him without saying a word. His relatives wept nearby as Colvin sat quietly at his stall.

As Cam said at the time, “I’ve already lived through the hardest part of my life. I’ve sat in the front row for the funerals of both my parents, so a broken ankle isn’t anything. I’d take that any day over what I’ve been through.”

Throughout all of his trials, Cameron has continued to put his axe to the grind, allowing critics to marvel at his character, work ethic, and charisma. He was signed to the a San Francisco 49ers where he earned high praise from offensive guru Mike Martz, who had led the St. Louis Rams to numerous Super Bowls. “He’s physical. He uses his speed and he goes after the ball. I’m very pleased with him. He doesn’t make many mistakes. He’s come out of the blue. We weren’t really counting on him to be a factor, but all of a sudden, he’s looking pretty good.” At 30, Colvin has just begun reaching his full potential, both in life and on the turf.
