Over the past few months, we have gotten a good luck at the talent that the Bentonville Tigers have returning for the 2021 season. The skill positions are in good hands for the Tigers and Christopher Collier-Surly is going to be a key piece for the Tigers. Bentonville has a good mix of the run and the pass and Collier-Surly is going to be a big part of the game plan.

Collier-Surly is a player that does a terrific job of displaying patience on picking a rushing lane. He has the speed to take it the distance from anywhere on the field. Another facet of Collier-Surly’s game is how unselfish of a player that he is. He is a willing blocker for his teammates and has no trouble using his 4.48 speed to block for his teammates. Collier-Surly has the speed to cut his run to the outside and pick up extra yardage. The receiving ability that Collier-Surly has is an underrated facet of his game, he can be a nightmare for linebackers to attempt to cover.

Collier-Surly is focused on helping Bentonville win a state championship. The young man is a team first guy, and he is an extremely loyal player. The determination and drive is something that is evident on the field and it comes through clearly when you talk with Christopher. He is a young man that is adopted and that was finalized a little under a year ago on June 19, 2020. Family means the world to this man and it shows up on and off the field and I have tremendous respect for those qualities.

One detail that opposing teams will want to keep in mind concerning the Bentonville Tigers is that they come in with a chip on their shoulders. Collier-Surly, Drew Wright Drew Wright 6'3" | QB Bentonville | 2022 State AR , Luke Wright Luke Wright 6'0" | TE Bentonville | 2022 State AR , Chas Nimrod Chas Nimrod 6'2" | WR Bentonville | 2022 State AR , Josh Ficklin Josh Ficklin 5'10" | RB Bentonville | 2023 State AR , and Cooper Smith Cooper Smith 6'0" | WR Bentonville | 2022 State AR all return from a team that went 10-1 last season. To accomplish the goals, both team and individual, Collier-Surly knows that time in the weight room getting stronger and faster will be vital for what the Tigers want to accomplish.

From a recruiting perspective Collier-Surly will be a player that scouts will want to keep an eye out for throughout the course of the season. He has the speed needed to break into the open field. Collier-Surly is dangerous as a receiver as well and uses his speed to gain separation. The college team that lands Collier-Surly gets an explosive play on the field and a quality person off the field and that is what football is all about.
