Berryhill’s Colton Voss: Baseball Spotlight Presented By Darin Hall Allstate

By Brad Heath

Berryhill High School’s Colton Voss lives and breathes baseball. The starting third baseman enters his senior year with one goal in mind, a state championship. If Voss and his teammates can bring home a state title, it will be Berryhill’s third championship in baseball. The first came in 2007 and the second in 2013.

“What I love most about my teammates is how close we are. Even in our off time, we’re always hanging out. I also love how driven they are, we all have our eyes set on one goal for the end of the season…a state championship,” said Voss. “I feel that this is the season that Berryhill baseball will claim the state title. We are all working hard to make it happen.”

Since the age of four, Voss has grown up on the diamond. Baseball is in his blood thanks to his father Josh Voss, a former Berryhill standout.

“The biggest influence on and off the field has probably been my dad. He not only taught me how to play baseball, he also taught me proper manners and how to be a gentleman,” said Voss.

But baseball is not his only focus. Academics play a key role in his life and making good grades is a priority for Voss.

“For my parents and I, academics come first. I have been accepted to the University of Oklahoma, but I am still undecided where I will actually attend college,” said Voss.

Voss enjoys hanging out with friends and playing video games when he’s not playing baseball or doing homework. But with the season rapidly approaching, Voss has one game circled on his calendar.

“The game I’m looking the most forward to on our schedule is against Sand Springs. One of my close friends from Berryhill moved to Sand Springs after our sophomore year and joined their baseball team. This will be our first and only time to play them,” said Voss.

Look for Voss and the rest of the Chiefs this season as they take to the field looking for that third state title.
