2017 Profile

Caleb Voelker WR

Columbus East


How did last season go?

At Columbus East we finished 12-1, losing to New Palestine in the sectional championship. We had a solid season that we're looking to build on this year. I think personally I had a decent season, but I was not at the skill level I'm at now in strength and speed. I've done allot of work in the offseason and I think I'm ready for a breakout season this year



What are your goals for upcoming season?

As a team the biggest goals are beat our cross town rival Columbus North, win our conference, and win a state championship.

My personal goals are to be all conference, 10+ touchdowns and 800+ yards. I'm not satisfied with anything less and expect to surpass both of those goals.




Which of your teammates will surprise this year?

I think Ben Jenkins, our middle linebacker this year could be in for a good season. He's worked hard in the weight room. he's a senior and it'll be his first time starting and i think he's a great fit and has a good chance to be successful in our Defense.
