Caleb Kidder Montana Gatorade POY

Post by grizcountry420 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 4:27 pm

THE WINNER: Caleb Kidder

THE BASICS: Anatomy of a POY

School: Capital (Helena, Mont.)
Grade: Senior
Position: Offensive guard/defensive end
Height: 6-foot-5
Weight: 245 pounds

THE PILLARS: Gatorade criteria

Athletic achievement: Kidder led the Bruins to a 12-1 record and the Class AA state championship this past season. He amassed 97 tackles, 13 sacks, 11 tackles for a loss and six forced fumbles for the Capital defense. A three-time All-State selection, Kidder also recorded 45 pancake blocks on offense.

Academic excellence: Kidder has maintained a 3.71 GPA in the classroom.

Exemplary character: Kidder has volunteered on behalf of local flood relief, youth sports programs and a school anti-drug initiative.

THE PRAISE: Russell McCarvel, head coach of rival Flathead (Kalispell, Mont.)

“Kidder is dominant on both sides of the ball, just a great, great player. He’s as good a two-way lineman as we’ve had in this league.”

THE FUTURE: Collegiate destination

Kidder has verbally committed to play football on an athletic scholarship at the University of Montana beginning in the fall of 2012.

Wrong Forum. This forum is for "Bobcat Football" . Oh, it's playoff week too. Stop wasting our time.

Congrats to Caleb!

grizcountry420, I know it's hard to understand but we have categories for a reason. Please don't post something CLEARLY not related to Bobcat Football in the Bobcat Football thread. We know he is going to UM, congrats to you guys for getting him.
