In his essay Caden clearly states the importance of football for him. “I approach many things with intensity, purpose and fire, but just thinking about competing and playing football gives me the greatest adrenaline rush and a feeling of intensity unmatched in any other area of my life. Football has already taught me crucial life lessons. It has taught me that if you want something bad enough, you have to work harder than expected, push through the pain, persevere through challenges, jump right back up and work harder after a loss, and that you shouldn’t expect anything positive to happen if you have not earned it one hundred percent.” Caden offers a special shout out to Coach Hagen.
Caden plans to attend University of Minnesota Duluth where he will play football and study civil engineering.
