SIU Basketball's Mr. Service


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE-- As a junior guard and walk on, Colby Long is making the most of his minutes this season for the SIU basketball team. Long brings consistency and a determined attitude to the Salukis, something that he's learned as a member of the school's ROTC.

Long balances a busy schedule of practice, games, and military training and labs. He routinely rises at 6 am for his ROTC duties, serving his country and bringing a unique perspective to his Saluki basketball teammates.
