Faced with one of the most consequential decisions of his life, Charlie Kolar flipped a coin.

Not so much to render a verdict, though, as to give him some insight into his own thinking about the prospect of staying for a fifth season with the Iowa State football team or leaving for the NFL.

“My parents taught me this technique — when you can’t make a decision, flip a coin and you say you’re going to make a decision based on the coin flip,” the All-America tight end said. “The way you feel afterward gives you a pretty good idea of what you actually feel (about a decision).”

So, Kolar flipped a coin after the 2020 season.
