(8-14-22) Colt Bath (8) is a Freshman QB at Northview HS in Brazil, Indiana. Bath transferred from Portage, Michigan after his dad Mike became the Offensive Coordinator for Indiana State University during the off season.

Mike and Joe Bath

The young Bath has strong roots in the roll of becoming a HS quarterback. His dad Mike is in the Celina (Ohio) HS Hall of Fame and played college football at Miami of Ohio. His grandpa, Joe, was a starting Bulldog QB and went on to star at Franklin College. They both led the Bulldogs to many successful seasons during their careers at Celina.

While Colt’s dad and grandpa both grew up and were raised in Celina and played football for the Bulldogs, he hasn’t had the same opportunity growing up. With dad being a college Assistant College football coach he has moved around several times and changed schools and has lived in Ohio, Wyoming, Michigan and now in Indiana.

This season Colt will play behind Kyle Cottee (6’4 Jr) who had a very impressive weekend in the Terre Haute South Jamboree. The Knights roster also has another Freshman QB listed, that should give Bath an opportunity to see a lot of playing time on JV.

Bath has the potential to follow in the footsteps of his dad and grandpa as a QB.

For Colt it seems to be a great fit, the Knights have a very successful program including a bunch of Western Indiana Conference Championships… 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2018, 2020, 2021.

Lots of eyes from Celina will be on Colt in the future, some wishing he was wearing a green and white Bulldog uniform…but this is an opportunity for him to write the next chapter in the Bath football heritage.

Colt’s mom Tara expressed it best on Facebook after this first weekend at Northview for her son:

Football has begun for this kid 🏈🏈. Took his first snap as a Northview Knight 🏈🏈🖤. Love new traditions with a weekend of Jamboree Friday Night varsity and Saturday JV!!! Love this team and community already!! Fills me with so much joy to watch Colt in his element 🏈🏈🖤🖤
