Stipins Secures Tigers Win


If you could imagine a rumble in terms of a football game, you either witnessed, or missed a the fight of a lifetime last night in Hackett. The Hornets hosted Mansfield Tigers in their first regular season game where it came down to the final seconds, resting on one final drive.
6′-4″ Senior Tight End, Colton Stipins isn’t hard to miss. His demeanor on, and off the field is that of a leader representing his passion for sport, love of team, and his energetic yet quiet demeanor steering the emotions of his teammates. His strong family upbringing is clearly evident in his example as a student athlete.
As the Hornets scored an emotional touchdown well within the final two minutes of regulation play, the Tigers had one more chance. Mansfield Quarterback, Ethan Stovall with the strength of the Tiger Offensive Line drove the ball down the field in dramatic fashion.

“We don’t stop fighting until the final whistle blows” stated Stipins.

Stipins, in motion around the Defensive End grabbed a perfectly placed pass to waltz in for the go ahead game winning TD. The proverbial “Crowd Went WIld” scenario played out in the Tiger stands, and sidelines.
The quote, “Who encourages the encourager” was well defined as Stipins headed to the sideline holding the ball that secured their first victory of his Senior year. He was met with a hoard of teammates, and roaring cheers from his friends and family.
Leadership can be a burden to some. Colton Stipins does it with a smile, a full heart and humility.
