In 2020, Colten completed his Construction Engineering degree at NC State University, where he first began playing volleyball. Colten joined the NC State Men’s Club Team, serving as an outside hitter for 4 years. His senior year team placed 5th nationally in the highest division of D1, the strongest finish in program history. Colten also helped found the NC State Outdoor/Beach Volleyball team, which competes against other local universities in beach volleyball.
Colten regularly competes in outdoor AVP grass volleyball tournaments along the east coast, with multiple Open Division & AA wins. When he is not playing volleyball, he enjoys going to football games, spending time with friends, and managing various construction projects in the Raleigh-Durham area.
Colten coached for Carolina Chaos Volleyball for 4 years prior to Advantage, serving as head coach for 3 of those years. He has coached a variety of ages and skill levels, ranging from Regional to National level and ages 15-18. He wants to share his love for the game and grow the sport through developing well rounded athletes. Colten is very excited to be joining the Advantage family for this season!
