He was a team captain of both the football and basketball teams. In the words of his basketball coach, as a leader Conlin modeled fellowship and empowered others to lead. Conlin is always the first to volunteer when an extra hand is required and he takes it upon himself to make sure that the task is done efficiently, thoroughly, and on time. Conlin has demonstrated the ability to be extremely orgainized, confident, committed and highly energetic.
While participating in Basketball and Football, Conlin has won numerous awards including the Athlete of the Year, Offensive Player of the year in Football, Rookie of the Year in Football, Defensive Player of the Year in Basketball, and The Asphalt Award for being the toughest player on the Senior Football team.
