Colin Larson enrolled at Williston Northampton School as a sixth-grader in hopes of fulfilling his dream of playing college baseball at one of the top D1 schools in the Northeast.
Now a Williston junior, Larson has fulfilled that goal by earning a commitment to Boston College after excelling as a two-sport athlete at the prep level. Larson, a wide receiver/cornerback on the gridiron, helped Williston reach the NEPSAC Mark Conroy Bowl this past fall. His primary sport, however, is and will always be baseball. He is an exceptional outfielder and left-handed relief pitcher. Standing 5-9, 175, Larson has two years remaining at Williston to harness his skill set before departing to BC.
As a seventh grader, Larson began his baseball career at Williston, playing on the junior varsity squad. After losing out the following year because of Covid protocols, Larson was able to use that off-time most effectively.
"It was during that time I feel I grew the most as a player,'' Larson said. "During the pandemic, I put my head down and worked as hard as I could to make myself a better player. I did everything I could to prepare for high school ball. It paid off as I started for the varsity (after the Covid year) and was a First Team All-WNEPBL selection.''
