Canute’s Colt Randall – FFA Spotlight Presented by Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma

By Rachelle Rogers

Colt Randall is a well-rounded sophomore at Canute High School. He can be seen on both the diamond and in the sheep barn. Colt is a member of FFA, plays baseball and is a co-salutatorian of his class.

Colt first stepped into an FFA showroom when he was 18 months old. His father, an Ag teacher for 20 years, instilled a love for showing animals that still drives Colt today. This year Colt will be showing just sheep, but he has also shown pigs for several years. He is currently the Reporter for his FFA Chapter. 

Colt is looking forward to the National Convention this year. He’s done quite well making the sale at the National Western Livestock Show in Denver, CO the last three years. He’s also won Grand Champion Ewe at the Southwest District Livestock Show in 2017,  Reserve Champion Overall Showman at the Oklahoma State Fair 2018, Champion Natural and Champion Shropshire at the Tulsa State Fair among many other awards.

Playing shortstop for the Trojans Baseball team is something else Colt loves to do. They made it into the state tournament for the first time in 20 years in 2019 and they are hoping to get into the state tournament again in 2020. He also plays basketball for Canute. In his free time he loves to fish, hunt, golf and spend time with family.

The biggest influences in Colt’s life are his parents, Gary and Sara Randall. “My dad is the hardest working person I know and has always pushed me to work hard,” states Colt. “My mom is the most giving person I know, making sure everything is done and I am where I need to be. The support system I have is amazing. I’m extremely blessed for sure.”
