Prior to the 2013 season, Chattahoochee wide receiver and University of Alabama-Birmingham verbal commitment Collin Lisa may have been considered as one of the more unheralded prospects in the state of Georgia. He was coming off a 2012 campaign which saw him finish with more than 1,000 yards receiving and named to the All-Region second team.

However, though a strong beginning to this season, Lisa has emerged as a premier threat in the Cougars offense. The senior had three touchdown catches in Chattahoochee’s 37-26 win over Douglas County on Sept. 13. Lisa finished the contest with a season-high six catches for 105 yards.

“Collin is a strong leader for our team and has been an integral part of our team’s success this season,” Chattahoochee head coach Michael Owens said.

“He is playing on offense, defense and most special teams. We have lost some key players to injuries here in the early part of the season and that places more need for Collin to have an even bigger impact in our games.”

The Cougars are currently 2-2 on the season and are seeking to make the postseason for the fourth consecutive season.

Chattahoochee will open Region 6-AAAAAA play against intown rival Johns Creek in an away contest this Friday.

“We’re looking forward to getting back on the field,” Owens said. “We’ve got a really tightknit group of players that work extremely hard together and are still learning to focus and compete. These local rivalry games are one of the great aspects of high school athletics which stirs a lot of excitement in the community.”
