Sports Editor Colin Barnard

Editor’s note: As part of a media transparency initiative, on May 8, 2017, the Collegian spent the last day of publishing of the year telling our readers about us. You can read more about the people behind our publication in the Editor’s Blog.  

Colin Barnard will be the Collegian sports editor for the 2017-18 year. Currently a sophomore studying journalism and economics, Barnard has been enthralled with the sports world and its impact on everyday life for years.


Born and raised in Denver, Colo., Barnard’s enthusiasm for sports began at a young age and has only grown throughout his life. When Barnard realized he was a much better writer than athlete, sports journalism presented itself in a very attractive manner.

In his first two years as a sports reporter for the Collegian, Barnard has covered women’s athletics at Colorado State, including basketball and soccer, allowing him to grow as a writer and reporter.

When he is not watching or writing about sports, Barnard enjoys spending time in the woods, listening to country music and eating delicious food.
