Colgate assistant finds better life, new sport in football



Colgate secondary coach Siriki Diabate is in his first season with the Raiders after having spent the past two as a graduate assistant at Syracuse. Diabate grew up in Ivory Coast playing soccer, but because of unsafe living conditions, left for the Bronx where he picked up football, a game he not only fell in love with, but excelled in.
