Bio

Colborn Couchman chose to walk on at Kansas State over offers from junior colleges, Pittsburg State, Emporia State and other Division II schools.

Couchman finished third on his high school team in tackles with 87, but was the team leader in solo tackles (52).

He had 24 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for 102 yards in losses.

Couchman participated in 2012 Kansas Shrine Bowl and was the Telegram's 2011 Player of the Year. He carried the ball 151 times for 1,242 yards and scored 22 touchdowns while averaging 8.2 yards per carry.

He also had nine pass receptions for 138 yards and one touchdown. On five kickoff returns, he averaged 36 yards and had one TD. He totaled 87 tackles, 52 of them solo; registered 24 tackles for loss; and had 10 sacks.

Couchman also was on the 3A 4x100-meter relay team. He helped Scott City High School to a combined 21-2 record during the past two seasons while playing defensive end. In his own words:

I had leaned toward going to a JUCO and then transferring, but my goal all along has been to attend K-State.

That's where I've always wanted to go to college, whether or not I played football. Now I have the opportunity to attend K-State and play football. That's all I can ask for.
