News from the house of David
Colin Veldman, oldest son of David Veldman has received a full scholarship at
Utah State University.
According to David:
Colin did receive a full tuition scholarship to Utah State which is in Logan,
Utah. It is a great little town about an hour and a half north of Salt Lake
City. He is a standout in throwing. Discuss is his specialty and he also throws
shot put. Colin is a big kid. He is 6'-5", +/-260 lbs. and all muscle. It
has been a long time since he and I have wrestled. I expect he'll have a record
setting senior year before he heads out to College. I am, of course, thrilled
and proud, as this opportunity has truly given him a focus not just on athletics
but also on maintaining the grades needed to be NCAA eligible. The folks in Utah
promise to take good care of him in every respect.
