News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Caleb Eagans. The Leon High School senior has a 3.9 GPA, and is currently ranked third in his class.

Caleb is a member of the Leon basketball, football, and track teams, and is also a black belt in karate. Caleb was 1st Team All-District and Academic All-District in all three sports. In track last season, Caleb was the UIL District Champion in the Long Jump, 110 Hurdles, and the 4X400 Relay. He was also the UIL Regional Track Long-Jump runner-up, and a State Qualifier. In basketball, he was named one of the top 100-Basketball Point Guards in the state. Academically, he's the the Vice President of the Student Council, Parliamentarian for his Senior Class, a member of NHS, FCS, UIL Academics and FCA. Caleb was a State Runner Up in One Act Play and was selected for the All Star Cast. In his spare time, Caleb is active in his church and volunteers in the community.

“I have known Caleb since he was a freshman. He is very energetic to the point its hard to keep him calm in class. He's very inquisitive; always wants to be the first to answer a question and the last one to leave. He comes in on energy and he leaves with energy. And he wants to know everything all at once.”

“Caleb like to win. He wants to win at whatever he does. I think he has a lot of support from his home life. His mom and dad have been up here and supporting him to do the best that he can at track. And I think its a strong personal commitment try to bring home as many gold medals as he can.”

“I lead more by example. I guess the things I do kind of rubs off on everybody else and they see how to do things right. And they just kind of do what I do, and just follow my lead. It puts a lot of stress on me mentally, because I know if I don't do things right then maybe some of the younger classmen might slack off a little bit. Or say, he's not doing it so maybe I can too. So I just have to make sure I'm doing everything right not only when Im out here practicing but outside of school and in the classroom.”r me, showing it means more.”

After high school, Caleb plans to attend Texas A&M University to run track and major in Kinesiology. He also plans to one day become a Physical Therapist.

Congratulations to Caleb Eagans of Leon High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
