A senior from Tahquitz High School, Caleb Farmer, just signed his letter of intent to play baseball for Colorado Mesa University. In addition to playing for the baseball team, Colorado Mesa offered to pay 52% of Caleb’s tuition.
Caleb said he has been playing baseball since he was four years old. He said his grandfather was the one that got him into the sport. Even though Caleb has been playing since he was four, he admits he didn’t really start to love the sport until he was twelve. At that time, he played in his first out-of-state tournament and his team won. He said that game was the best experience of his life and it made him truly appreciate the sport.
Caleb has been on the Tahquitz baseball team all four years. His baseball coach, Ron Savage, said, “Caleb is the hardest working and humblest student I’ve ever been around.” He said he expects great things from him in college and that he couldn’t be more proud to have had the opportunity to coach him. Caleb thanked his coach for always supporting him. He admits that he was afraid of him when he first met him, but is now able to talk to him about anything and said he is thankful for everything his Coach has done for him.
Caleb has been scouted by a few colleges since his junior year. University of Utah and California Baptist University both showed interest in having Caleb play for their baseball teams. However, Caleb ended up choosing Colorado Mesa after he visited the campus. He said he loved the feel of the campus and believes it will give him a better opportunity. He said he is excited to move to Colorado to experience a different way of life. He hopes to major in Criminal Justice and become a District Attorney.
Congratulations Caleb on signing your letter of intent for Colorado Mesa University! We wish you the best in your future endeavors...and go Mavericks!
