He graduated from Oklahoma City University in 2021 with a degree in Political Science with minors in International Studies and History.

During his time as an athlete at OCU, Caleb was a three-time Academic All-SAC recipient, and a two-time NAIA Scholar Athlete. He was also the Baseball recipient of the Jim Wade Award, the OCU Student-Athlete of the Year in 2021, and was mentored by two hall-of-fame coaches and men, Denney Crabaugh and Keith Lytle. 

As a servant in student government, Caleb was the Senator for Athletics, the Student Representative on the OCU Athletics Committee, and the Secretary of Policies and Initiatives, where he pioneered the Pads and Tampons Initiative to expand free access to feminine hygiene products to the female students on campus. In his capacity as Secretary of Policies and Initiatives, he also launched the “Let’s Talk” Initiative to encourage mental health awareness at OCU.

Caleb’s greatest achievement at OCU was meeting his wife, Anna. Anna is a second grade teacher in the Putnam City School District in Oklahoma City. They attend St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Bethany, Oklahoma where Caleb’s father-in-law is their pastor. The couple resides in Yukon, Oklahoma where they are proud parents of four houseplants that they tend tediously to keep alive. 

Caleb is currently pursuing his life-long dream of becoming a lawyer with the support of his family, where he plans to expand access to healthcare and ensure that everyone gets the quality of healthcare that they deserve regardless of their socio-economic status.
