Collins was an integral part of the glory years of Titan football in 1982 through 1985, when he started for four seasons at cornerback and the team won a pair of Pacific Coast Athletic Association championships and played in the California Bowl in Fresno. He was the PCAA Defensive Player of the Year in 1985 and holds the school career record with 20 pass interceptions. As a senior he began returning punts and averaged 22 yards on 7 attempts including an 81-yard TD. He was a second-round draft choice of the New York Giants in 1986 and played 13 seasons in the National Football League including Super Bowls XXI and XXV with the Giants and XXXII with Green Bay. He earned All-Pro status and in 2001 was selected to the all-time New York Giants team selected by the St. Petersburg Times. Coach Bill Parcells said, "Mark Collins is the only cornerback who could cover Jerry Rice." Collins has built several successful businesses and currently is a part-time broadcaster.
