Colm Tompkins joined his first football team when he was 6 years old. Tompkins played for the Crescentwood Grizzlies (Manitoba Minor Football Association) until he was 12 years old, and then joined the St.Paul’s Crusaders (Winnipeg High School Football League) junior varsity team when he was in grade 9. Colm made the Crusaders’ ‘AA’ team in grade 10, and has made their ‘AAA’ team the past two years.

A memory that stood out from last season was when Colm and the Crusaders hosted their homecoming game. Colm talked about that experience, he mentioned, “This was an incredible experience because you are playing for the people who wore the same maroon jersey before you. It’s crazy to see how far back the legacy goes.”

When looking for support and someone to look up to, Colm doesn’t have to look far. Tompkins said, “My parents who have supported me in everything I have done in life.

On the gridiron, Colm has been influenced by the coaches at St.Paul’s. “My Coaches at St. Paul’s who have taught me so much and pushed me to be the player I am today,” added Colm.

Colm’s plans after high school are to continue taking football as far as he possibly can. Once he’s done with football, Colm wants to get his degree in English and then hopefully attend Fire College and become a fire fighter.

In terms of recruitment Colm has been talked to by a few CIS schools but there hasn’t been anything concrete as of yet. Colm is hoping his final season can spark some more interest.

When asked what he’s going to do to improve this season, Colm replied, “I’m gonna come back hitting harder and running faster.”
