“Cole was an outstanding quarterback for Newport Harbor High School. He’s not only one of the top passers in the history of Orange County, but he is also the all-time leading passer in all major categories for the Sailors. Cole has a great combination of arm strength, accuracy and a very quick release. We’re thrilled to have him join the Lumberjack family and we know Cole has a bright future.” – Wide Receivers Coach Tim Plough
