great story...super good youth in many sports in Utah! In 4A, Salem Hills ace senior, Colton Hill, 6-0 with a no hitter and couple of 1 hitters already, also chose to postpone college to go on a mission to Ecuador, leaving in August. These youth are all impressive to follow their beliefs. Great story and liked the past stories about Lone Peak basketball players as well. Nothing like good news in sports.

Good choice by a very solid young man. Best of luck!

Ganbatte ne!!

I love these faith-promoting stories of young men and women who are making some very important decisions and sacrifices to go out and help others throughout the world, putting others ahead of their own interests.

You will love the Japanese people - and Japan! And, Colton Hill will love the people of Ecaudor - and Ecuador!

Onward, ever onward!

I watched him throw his no hitter last week. I believe he walked 3-4 guys, so I didn't realize it was a no-hitter until I read this article. The kid is an awesome baseball player. I'm glad he has turned things around and he seems to be headed in the right direction with his life. It sounds like Coach Ingersoll has had a big influence on him. Great story all the way around. We need more of these stories. Best of luck Riley.
