Colosi, who lives in Cypress Run in Coral Springs, began playing football at eight years old with the Chargers However, due to weight restrictions, Colosi played a year up. He also competed in Davie and Plantation from ages 10-13.

Colosi started at Westchester Elementary before attending Coral Springs Charter for two years and then transferring to American Heritage in eighth grade. For three of those years, Colosi has played on the varsity football team, helping the Paladins to 27 wins and a State Championship in 2020. He was also nominated as All-American Offwsnive Center to play in the Blue-Grey All-American Game at Raymond Hames Stadium in Tampa.

“It is an honor to be chosen out of 6,500 players that tried out for his position,” Colosi added. “I’m excited to play at a large venue like Tampa stadium and on ESPN3. This is a once-of-a-lifetime opportunity.”

After reviving interest from varsity’s Division I football programs, Colosi decided on FAU because he wanted to play locally for friends and families, enjoyed the upgraded facilities, and developed a terrific relationship with the Owls offensive line coach Ed Warriner.
