Jack Colletto has picked up another honor for his stellar 2016 football season.
Actually, Colletto says, the Camas Papermakers picked up another honor.
“It means a lot but the award doesn’t really go to me. It goes to our whole team,” Colletto said.
Officialy, though, this one will be in Colletto’s name.
Colletto has been named the Gatorade Washington Football Player of the Year after leading the Papermakers to the Class 4A state championship.
“To have this label with our team and what we’ve done this year is pretty sweet,” Colletto said.
Colletto threw for 27 touchdowns and more than 2,800 yards and rushed for 1,253 yards and 21 touchdowns as the team’s quarterback. He also was an all-league defensive back.
Colletto said he woke up Monday morning and received a text from coach Jon Eagle letting him know he was named Washington’s top player. Colletto got to school and a package from Gatorade was awaiting him.
