If anyone just read the headlines last year, he or she would assume that professional sports were just populated with violent athletes and misguided coaches. He or she may have overlooked the film—The Game Stands Tall—released during that summer. It was a true story about young athletes, with dedicated coaches, at De La Salle High School who overcame disadvantaged backgrounds to obtain academic and athletic success. The main high school student profiled in the film—Cameron Colvin—is continuing to strive, as a successful businessman in Phoenix, Arizona.
Colvin was born in Pittsburg, California, thirty minutes from San Francisco. He had all the circumstances others use to excuse failure. His father died when he was very young, and his mother, when he was a sophomore in high school. His best friend, Terrance Kelly, was shot and killed the day before he and Colvin were supposed to leave for college.
Colvin broke his ankle while in senior year of college, before the draft. Such tragedies could have broken many men. “The losses made me more resilient,” Colvin says.
The movie documents the De La Salle Spartan’s 151-game winning streak, Coach Bob Ladouceur’s successful tenure with the team, and Colvin’s ordeals. Colvin went onto to University or Oregon, which had a good football program and an excellent business curriculum. He was able to return home when he signed with the San Francisco 49ers. He moved to Arizona to rehabilitate an ankle he injured in the NFL. Colvin’s mother’s dying advice was “Get your Education you’ll be fine.” Colvin has always been an outstanding student athlete, being on the honor roll in high school, lettering all four years in college.
Adding his advertising corporation Cam-Colvin Inc. in 2008, he also added Rise Above Enterprises, as a networking hub. He has been very successful in real estate, as well, and is currently working on a $250 million lifestyle entertainment venue in North Scottsdale. Colvin, also, contributes to communities; he is a major sponsor of the Arizona nonprofit Linking Sports & Communities. Colvin is quick to point out that he is grateful to others—whether it be his mother or mentors, like Jerry Olivarias from Marvel Comics—for their contributions to his success. He is confident, but humble, with a passion for helping kids. Cameron Colvin is the kind of professional sports role model about whom we should be hearing more.

Cameron Colvin knows plenty about standing tall. Before his 19th birthday, Colvin lost both of his parents and his best friend, Terrance Kelly, who was murdered two days before he was set to head to the University of Oregon with Colvin to play football for the Ducks. “As you get older, you see those things were there to prepare you for life,” Colvin said. “I was really fortunate to have a strong foundation of family growing up.

Today he’s a successful real estate developer who recalls the impact of commitment cards. "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." READ FULL ARTICLE

Colvin Is Full Steam Ahead
SEPTEMBER 10, 2011-- DON SMALLEY
No one said the track to the NFL was an easy one. Cameron Colvin has been on that track and it has been full of twists and turns. But the 2007 Oregon graduate hasn’t given up on his dream, and maybe it’s proper he currently plays for the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League.
Colvin has been dealing with twists and turns all his life. He didn’t have the “normal” childhood. Far from it. Colvin’s father passed away of pneumonia and a heart attack at the age of 39 when Colvin was just six year old. If that wasn’t enough, his mom died of congestive heart failure when Colvin was just 15 years old, leaving he and his sister to live with their godmother.
“I think dealing with all of that made me strong,” Colvin said. “My mother taught me a lot in those 15 years. It made me understand life and how to deal with adversity.” All the while, Colvin was making a name for himself as a wide receiver at De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif. He always had he dream of playing in the NFL, but a suffered a broken ankle in the sixth game of his senior year at Oregon. READ MORE
Oregon's Colvin pursues NFL dream despite tragedies
APRIL 22, 2008-- JEFFRI CHADIHA
Cameron Colvin felt and heard the gruesome crack in his right ankle in October 2007 and immediately knew his college career had ended.
He didn't need to see Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti wincing. He didn't need to hear the gasp of the Autzen Stadium crowd. Colvin knows pain too well. He lost both parents before he was old enough to drive. His best friend was murdered before they entered college. He and misfortune need no introduction.
So Colvin choked back tears as a team doctor inspected his broken ankle on the Ducks' sideline during that 53-7 win over Washington State. 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. READ MORE
