PROFESSIONAL CAREER: CHINA, USA, CANADA, EL SALVADOR, BRAZIL (2014 - PRESENT)
Born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Jose Colorado has gone on to have a successful professional career across the globe. To date, he has played in China, USA, Canada , Brazil and El Salvador, routinely putting up respectable scoring numbers in each stop.
He recently was selected to play in the prestigious "Liga De Las Americas" tournament consisting of the best club teams in all of the Americas. The competition is considered the highest level of basketball on the continent outside of the NBA.
Colorado is currently playing in the Liga Mayor de Baloncesto in El Salvador - the country's top professional division - and is preparing for the national team in the near future.
UNIVERSITY CAREER: QUEST UNIVERSITY (CLASS OF 2014)
Despite his high school accomplishments, Colorado received little interest heading into college. He eventually landed at Quest University (Squamish, B.C.) in the Pacwest Conference where he played four years of varsity basketball and was a major part in helping to turn around a perennial bottom-feeding program. Quest notched back-to-back bronze medals and as the host team finished fifth in the country in Jose's senior season. It was the culmination of an enormous four-year turn around as the team had never made the playoffs prior to Jose's arrival.
The Kitchener native graduated as the PACWEST conference's second all-time leading scorer, Quest University's all-time leading scorer, a three-time conference all-star, a national tournament all-star and was recognized as the Academic Athlete of the Year, averaging a 3.91 GPA in his final season.
HIGH SCHOOL: GRAND RIVER COLLEGIATE (CLASS OF 2009)
Often overshadowed by his sibling's basketball exploits, Jose eventually put together a solid high school career at Grand River Collegiate when given the reigns to the team.
Jose was a two-time city all-star and led the league in scoring in his senior season (24.1) while finishing second in his junior year (17.2). Graduating in 2009, Jose still stands in the top ten in the school's all-time scoring list and holds multiple offensive records to this day, including: most points scored in a playoff game (45) and most three pointers made in a game/playoff game (12). He was inducted into the Grand River Wall of Fame in 2010.
Some of the school's most notable former players include: Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets, NBA), Imad Qahwash (FIBA international pro) and Chelsea Aubry (former Canadian team national member).
