2011 cornerback Calvin Caldwell enjoyed a successful career with the J.L. Mann Patriots. His work on and off the field now will take him to Lenoir Rhyne College in North Carolina. We caught up with Caldwell as he's the latest to be featured in SCPrepNation.com's "Signee Update" series.
Looking back over his senior year he enjoyed plenty of big moments but one especially sticks out in Caldwell's mind.
"The fondest moment of my senior year was making and playing in the Shrine Bowl. It felt good to be recognized because I had worked extremely hard throughout high school."
That hard work continues despite recently graduating Caldwell says. He's eager to try and obtain early playing time once he arrives at Lenoir Rhyne.
"I work with a trainer three days a week, and the rest of the week I do the workout that Lenoir Rhyne has given me. On the weekends I try to improve on small things like backpedaling and breaks."
"I want come in and play as much as possible, and make a big impact. Mainly I want to help LR to a better record than they finished with last season."
The cornerback already knows who he'll be rooming with when he arrives at school and he talked about what he'll miss most about home in Greenville.
"My roommate will be Stephen Amoah, a linebacker from Butler High in North Carolina. I'll miss my family and the good friends I have in Greenville mostly."
Caldwell will major in Business Administration with a minor in Communications.
He also offered up some advice for up and coming young prospects as well.
"Outwork everyone and never think you're good enough. Also, be a good student and get as much good exposure as early as possible. The earlier, the better."
