Harford Community College freshman phenom Harry Collins has been named a 2020 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) NJCAA Men's All-American after a shortened season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Collins burst into the scene in 2020 after being named Universal Tennis Rating ITA National Player of the Week on March 12. He is the third men's tennis student-athlete to be awarded the national honor.
Collins was a stand-out for Harford’s Fighting Owls down in Alabama to start the year. He went 2-0 in singles and 1-1 in doubles through HCC's matchups with No. 3 Seward County and University of South Carolina Sumter. Against USC Sumter's Israel Rojas, Collins rolled to a quick 6-3, 6-1 victory.
His doubles match against Heimanarii Lai San and Jorjay Paladines of USC Sumter was much closer, but the Harford duo won out, 8-7. In the match against Seward County, Collins was responsible for the Fighting Owls' lone point.
The freshman then recorded a major upset over Intercollegiate Tennis Association No. 2 Sander Jans. Collins took the first set only to narrowly drop the second. He fought back and took the tiebreaker to win 6-3, 5-7, 10-5.
