High Five: Columbus talks football, fishing and country music – Washington Daily News


Terry Columbus, a native of Belhaven, plays the role of guard and defensive tackle for the Northside football team, wrestles in the 190 lb weight class and is a baseball center fielder. He shares his point of view on several topics with High Five.

  1. The Panthers are 7-1 and are among the top 1A teams in the East. How did playing for the state title in Raleigh in the spring pass on to this group?

Terry: It was the greatest feeling in the world to go through that tunnel and go to the Carter-Finley stadium field and we want to experience it again. We understand how difficult it is to get there and have tried to work hard with each practice to get back. We all get along really well and are super motivated to finish strong so we can.

  1. If you could only choose one sport, which one would it be?

Thierry; Certainly football, because I have always loved to play. My mom signed me up to play in the Belhaven Recreational League when I was five or six and I didn’t quit. My first trainer drove us to death, but I loved it. I played in a Washington Youth Football League Super Bowl with the Belhaven Bulldogs, I played Northeast Elementary and now here. There is no better feeling than being on the pitch competing with my teammates.

  1. What do you like to do when you’re not playing sports?

Terry: I like to train at the gym and I like to fish. My favorite spot is the Belhaven Breakwater and I also love fishing in Hyde County. The biggest I ever caught was a 26 inch redfish two summers ago in Belhaven.

  1. What are your plans after graduation?

Terry: I plan to attend Elizabeth City State to major in criminal justice and music?

  1. What is your musical background?

Terry: My father plays the piano and the guitar. We were sitting on the porch a few years ago and he showed me how to play acoustic guitar. He plays a lot of blues, but I’m more country. I also sing almost every day and Luke Combs is my favorite to listen to.
