Versatile Ram, Carzoli, commits to SDSMT

BIG HORN — Colter Carzoli did it all for the Big Horn Rams this year, and will take that versatility to South Dakota School of Mines and Technology after signing his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

Carzoli was an All-State performer this season, helping the Rams reach the 2A semis in 2012, capping this year with a state title.

Often too much for 2A defenders to handle, Carzoli was the eighth-ranked rusher in 2A this season, finishing with 1,209 yards and nine touchdowns.

His 7.4 ypc average was best of the top 10 in 2A, and he racked up 374 more yards receiving while getting six more scores through the air.

As the Rams place kicker, he made 45 extra points and one field goal for the Rams.

On defense, he filled in quickly this season for a squad that departed a big chunk of its 2012 starters, holding up the Rams from the linebacker position.

He was the 10th-ranked defensive points earner in 2A, getting 40 assisted and 29 solo tackles, including 12 tackles for loss and four sacks. He broke up five passes and recovered four fumbles and had four interceptions and a blocked kick.

Along with the Rams coaches, Carzoli’s mother Mona Phillips was there to watch him sign on Wednesday.

Carzoli also plays basketball and soccer in high school, and he plans to play wide receiver for the Hardrockers.
