Getting a scholarship is something that almost every high school student strives to do, especially if one is a student athlete. For Caleb Cardwell that desire has become a reality. This year Caleb has received the opportunity to play baseball for York College in York, Nebraska. He received a scholarship for 2,000 dollars as a freshman, and each year that will increase.Caleb has played baseball since he was a young boy, and he said that getting this scholarship has been the goal he always shot for.
Besides baseball Caleb has also been involved in cross country and basketball during high school. “Caleb was definitely the guy on the team that ran for fun, he never took it very seriously,” said cross country teammate Maddy Shepherd. Cardwell hasn’t been involved in any clubs during high school and he said that it is one of his biggest regrets. Even though Caleb wasn’t involved in much other than sports, he is still very well known throughout the school.
Caleb has a very positive attitude and is always cracking jokes to make people laugh. “Caleb and I have been friends since I was a freshman, and he has always had a great attitude, and has helped me a lot in baseball,” said junior Trevor Dye.
Caleb said that so far his senior year is going well, but very fast. “I am really going to miss all of the good friends I’ve made,” said Cardwell. Caleb plans to leave for York in August, so he does have some time to spend with his friends. While at York Cardwell plans to study business management.
