Considering his bloodlines, it's no wonder Colin Mulvaney is the second all-time leading scorer in Jenkintown boys' basketball history. His father, Chris, played hoops at Pennsbury and Ursinus. His cousins, Luke and Liam, played at Springside Chestnut Hill and Jenkintown, respectively. And his uncle, Joe, was a scrappy guard at the old Bishop Egan in the mid-1970s. Two of Mulvaney's other cousins, Liz and Emily, stood out at Abington and went on to be 1,000-point scorers at American and Villanova, respectively.
