According to Hammond senior OT Caleb Thorn, high school football taught him a very straightforward lesson – to take care of business.

“I feel that I learned how important it is to not be lazy and to make sure I put 100 percent effort into everything I do,” Thorn said.

While Thorn may not have any offers on the table, he hasn’t let anything discourage him.

“I am very serious about pursuing a career in football,” he said.  “I love the sport and want to play it for as long as I can, but if something were to happen and I can no longer play, I want to go into photography.”

For the senior 6-4, 300 pound tackle, just “having fun with it” will be what he looks back fondly of when his senior season comes to a close.

“A few accomplishments that come to mind are all of the fun moments I had on the field,” Thorn said. “Getting to compete against other people.

Thorn also likes to think he was a role model for those around him.

“Off the field, I just tried my best to set an example and to be a leader to our teammates,” he said.
