Colter glad he’s face of college athlete union bid

Kain Colter is the perfect front man for the College Athletes Players Association.

Colter is the ideal student-athlete: playmaker as quarterback and receiver, three-time Big Ten all-academic honoree, polished speaker.

The former Northwestern player tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that he’s been blessed ”with the ability to be a natural-born leader whether it’s as a quarterback, team captain or leader outside of the football field.”

Colter and the United Steelworkers have announced plans to form the first labor union for college athletes.
