Question: Do you have any team goals heading into this season?

Question: Have you done any summer training? If so, what have you been focusing on?
Answer: I have been lifting weights during the week days and running speed drills with my coaches. I have been focusing on my speed and quick feet, for it will help me with getting off the line quicker and beating my defenders.
Question: Do you have any scholarship offers?
Answer: I do not have any offers but I have a few interests from colleges.
Question: What is going to make this season different than your previous season?
Answer: This season will be filled with experience. Last year we had a lot of sophomores and freshman that got a lot of playing time. This experience is helping us pick up on the varsity side of football better than last year. Our pass game this year is going to be a lot better with the speed we have lined up and defensively we have more physical players and guys who are willing to hit.
Question: When does your team camp begin?
Answer: Our team camp was July 17-19 at Central College.
Question: Where is your dream place to play football and why?
Answer: My dream place to play football was always at the University of Arkansas as I grew up being a fan and thinking of myself being there.
Question: What motivates you the most to continue improving your game?
Answer: What motivates me the most is showing other people I can do it. Showing others that I can make it to the next stage of football.
Question: What's your biggest piece of advice you've gained from a coach?
Answer: My biggest piece of advice I've gained from a coach was that it didn't matter about the size of the person or how strong they were, as long as I am faster and quicker I could beat them.
Thank you for your time, Caleb, and good luck this season!
