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.

From Oregon to Owning His Own Business: Cameron Colvin Continues To Stand Tall
FEBRUARY 6TH, 2015 CHUCK COX
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. It really helped me get through those things and keep me on the right path. It’s so easy for a young man or young woman to go either way when things aren’t right.”
And even though a career in professional football wasn’t in the cards for Colvin, his perseverance, toughness and unyielding optimism have helped him become a successful entrepreneur. He started a marketing and advertising firm called CamColvin, Inc., in 2009. Three years ago, he added a subsidiary, Rise Above Enterprises, which focuses on real estate development and funding ventures for other businesses. READ MORE
