PLAYER INTERVIEW: Caleb Guard - G - 2022

by Palmetto Media

Palmetto Prep Academy’s Caleb Guard recently sat down with Stewart Dolbeare to catch up on the upcoming season.

What made you choose Palmetto Prep Academy ?

 I decided to choose Palmetto Prep because of the limited recruiting field in 2020. I believed it was in my best interest to reclassify and pursue opportunities in a more player-friendly recruiting year.

What high school did you graduate from?

 I graduated from T.L. Hanna high school in Anderson, South Carolina, where I played varsity football for four years.

What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 recruiting class?

I believe my technique, play strength, work ethic, and knowledge of the game set me apart from other prospects at my position.

What is one thing that colleges and universities should know about you?

I think colleges and universities should know about my love for the game and my determination to work as hard as possible in every aspect of my life.

What are you thinking about majoring in when you get to college?

When I get to whichever college or university I attend, I would like to major in broadcasting or journalism.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

The best advice I’ve ever received came from my great grandmother; she has always said, “No matter what you do in life, do it well.” I use this motto every day in everything I do

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

 The hardest moment in my life that I've had to overcome was my fathers' deployment when I was younger. To lose my idol to the military for a large portion of my childhood was very disheartening. However, looking back on it now, I am very proud of his accomplishments and his military career.

Do you have any offers currently?

Currently, I do not have any offers for the class of 2022, but I hope to earn my first in the summer or the fall.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

If I had to sell myself to a college or university in one sentence, I would say, “The hardest worker in the room at any given time.”
