This season, 2016 Holy Family quarterback Chris Helbig was in the midst of rewriting the Colorado high school record book. Early in the season, the 6-4 signal caller threw for 607 yards in a single game, setting a state record. Further, Helbig holds the record for most games over 500 yards in a season. Helbig was fast one his way to setting the all-time pass yardage record for a quarterback until a severe kneed injury ended his season early.
Helbig, keeping positive, told PrepColorado earlier, regarding his rehab, “It's going great. I'm really competitive and it’s the one thing I have to compete with right now so I'm doing great in it” Beyond football, Helbig is also one of the state’s top basketball players, last season averaging over 18 points a game for his Holy Family squad. Due to injury Helbig will have to sit out his senior hoops season. Helbig was also garnering college interest for basketball but had opted to play college football.
Helbig hopes to be back to 100% by late spring and he still has options for college football. In state schools CSU-Pueblo and School of Mines are keeping their offers to Helbig. Northern Colorado and Wyoming are in contact and the University of Colorado would like Helbig to be a preferred walk on.
Helbig is a competitor, further he has a skill set that transfers to the next level with the ability to make quick reads and accurate throws. Also, Helbig is athletic enough to buy time in and out of the pocket. A great student, player and young man, Helbig will reward the college team that sticks with him.
