PLYMOUTH — Dedication is a common theme to excellence at anything.
Plymouth Rockie Calvin Eads is proof of that belief as the senior linebacker has been honored by the Indiana Football Coaches Association and the Indianapolis Colts as an Indiana Academic All Star Team member. Calvin is a first team defensive member and joins an elite group of 24 players around the state so honored. He is one of only three Class 4A athletes to be selected and he and his peers will will be honored in Indianapolis on December 19 at halftime of the Colts’ home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“It really has to do with commitment,” said Calvin of his honor. “There’s the commitment to work hard and to your teammates. On the field you have that responsibility to your other teammates and in the classroom you have the same commitment to your teachers. There are a lot of lessons you learn on the field you can take to the classroom.”
