From start to finish, Kevin Colton’s lacrosse career at Northview High School has been a storied one.

The dynamic attacker burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2010, gained 1st-team All-State honors by his junior season and has captained the Titans to a 16-2 record and No. 2 state ranking this spring.

“He plays on the attack and has started for all four years,” said Northview lacrosse coach Michael Ryan of his star senior. “He was voted team captain by his teammates this year and he leads by example for us, [with a] drive to be the best than he can be.”

Colton’s best has not only brought him individual accolades, but a tremendous amount of team success.

During his four years at Northview, the Titans have amassed a 60-19 record on the lacrosse field, captured three Area Championships, two treks to the Final Four and are making their fourth straight appearance in Georgia’s postseason this week — hosting McIntosh in the state’s first round.

As an individual Colton notched his 300th career point in a win over Cambridge last month, and has accumulated 96 points and scooped up 70 ground balls through 18 matches this season.

“His leadership and play has led our team [all] year,” said Ryan.
