"Collegiate athletics has given me the opportunity to compete and improve while also having a good time with my teammates. It has taught me the importance of supporting each other and the effect that has on the performance of the team as a whole." Elyse Cram, '21

Roar Like Russell


Russell Wilson, quarterback for the NFL's Denver Broncos, graduated from Collegiate School in 2007. He attended Collegiate from Kindergarten through his Senior year, and he was a three-season athlete football, basketball, and baseball and president of his Senior class.

We recognize our outstanding players in many ways. Below you'll find how Collegiate School honors our top athletes, present and alumni, and teams that have brought home championships. Many gifted Collegiate School athletes continue their athletic careers beyond our community.

Hall of Fame

In 2002, Collegiate established an Athletic Hall of Fame to honor those individuals who, through fair play, brought recognition, honors, distinction, and excellence to the School and its interscholastic athletic programs during their time at Collegiate. Since then, the Alumni Association has inducted four classes of individuals, coaches, and teams into the Athletic Hall of Fame. If you would like to nominate an individual, team, or coach for the next induction, please contact Director of Alumni Engagement Anne Gray Siebert.

  • Rob Kelly Spirit Award (Boys' Lacrosse)

    The family and friends of Rob Kelly ’87 established a fund in 2002 to recognize the efforts of gifted student athletes whose spirit of leadership both in the classroom and on the athletic field exemplify outstanding, unwavering effort to achieve team goals. Rob was an honor student and gifted writer, receiving the E. Angus Powell Award for American Enterprise in his junior year. He was a member of an outstanding class of students who admired each other, worked well together and held the highest academic average to come through Collegiate at that time. He loved and excelled at football and lacrosse; the boys’ lacrosse team won the 1987 State Championship and was undefeated. Rob was an unrelenting voice in encouraging Collegiate’s spirit. The Rob Kelly Spirit Award recognizes those efforts.
