OSI Making of a Champion Series: Cole Veith
I’ve been fortunate to work with many talented athletes in my short tenure with OSI. I developed the “Making of a Champion” series to highlight some of the incredible local talent I get to work with. These stories come from athletes across all different sports. Dance, football, basketball, and bowling, to name a few. I’m honored to work with them all! As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read through these success stories, and share in these athlete’s accomplishments.
In this edition of “The Making of a Champion“, we will hear from Cole Veith, a football and baseball player who has made a big impact on the Simley High School athletics program. Join with me as we discover what makes Cole a Champion.

JS: What was one defining moment when you realized you had reached Champion status?
CV: Starting in my first varsity football game as a sophomore and getting the big win over Hill Murray
JS: You’ve made quite the impression on the Simley athletics program at a young age. What is one Champion ingredient in you that makes you so successful?
CV: My work ethic both in and out of school. I strive to be the best in everything I do with few excuses
JS: As we look ahead to spring baseball, and then preparing for football in the fall, what are you going to focus on to ensure continued Champion status?
CV: Getting better both physically and mentally. I struggle in dealing with pressure and I need to overcome that to be more successful. In addition, I’m going to continue to train to prepare myself physically.
I think that sums up how a young athlete with the right type of focus can create a culture of success in an athletics program that knows what success feels like. Cole has a lot to offer to Simley High School, and I know for sure that his athletics career is going to be riddled with the word “Champion”. Thanks Cole for allowing OSI to help you along the way. You are a true Champion.
