A striker, Collie scored 53 goals in 59 games over two seasons for Dundee Hibs, finishing as top scorer in Division Two over both seasons before the advent of war in late 1914. He had played for Brechin Hearts, Brechin City, Dundee, Brechin City (again) and Dundee Hibs before going to fight.

He enlisted in the 3/5th Black Watch around October or November 1915 and was killed in action serving as a corporal with the 5th Black Watch near Ypres.

In a letter to his family, his company sergeant major said, "The Germans tried to raid us and Collie was hit by a shell. He never spoke and died in a few minutes. When I saw him he had a smile on his face. He was a good soldier and greatly respected by everyone. He was a great favourite, and Brechin today is the poorer for the loss of one of her gallant sons."
