WJBF Scholar Athlete: Curtis Baptist’s Colin Ulrich

Scholar Athlete Award

Augusta, Ga. (WJBF) — Curtis Baptist’s Colin Ulrich is this week’s WJBF Scholar Athlete.

Ulrich is a letter winner in three different sports, including basketball, football and tennis. He’s a pivotal member of two region champion basketball teams, while maintaining 4.0 GPA throughout his high school career.

“I try to set an example, but I also try to follow examples,” Ulrich said. “A leader has to follow at many different times, so I focus on trying to look to others and set an example for all of them.”

Robert Leslie, Curtis Baptist’s athletic director, said Ulrich is a tremendous leader.

“Colin’s leadership is unbelievable,” Leslie said. “I always say I wish I was like that when I was his age, but he just pushed other kids in a positive way, and just anytime [I’m] around him he makes me better and I’m around him a lot.”

Ulrich also has one more game in his football career as Curtis Baptist hosts Wardlaw in the regular season finale for SCISA 8-man football.
