Reason For Nomination: Kaleb is an outstanding young man and is a great example for his peers. He is very courteous and respectful to everyone, and even though he is a quiet person he always has time for others. Although, Kaleb is small in stature, he has played big with a huge amount of heart. Because of a shortage of offensive linemen, he was willing to take off his backfield number and the glory that goes with carrying the ball to become an offensive lineman at 140 pounds to help the team fill the need. When the starting tailback suffered an injury, he went back to the backfiedl and has done an excellent job of carrying the ball. His willingness to do for the team instead of worrying about individual honors is an example of how Kaleb approaches all aspects of his life. Coach John Morris says, "Kaleb always does the right thing and makes the right decision."
