Senior Caleb Evans had "a monster year" on the football field last fall, and now will head to college in Louisiana on a full scholarship. Thirty Bishop Dunne graduates are currently playing sports on the collegiate level including schools such as The University of Notre Dame, Ivy league's Brown University, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Brigham Young, Rice and Baylor.

Senior Falcon Quarterback Caleb Evans Chooses the University of Louisiana at Monroe

TAPPS District 1A Offensive Player of the Year ready for college

Caleb Evans sat on the bench last year, awaiting his turn as the starting quarterback for the Bishop Dunne Falcons. His patience paid off, as he had what the Dallas Morning News called “a monster year,” leading the Falcons to an undefeated regular season, back-to-back District Champions, and a repeat appearance at the State Championship game.
 
His performance earned him the top honor in TAPPS, and the coveted TAPPS Offensive Player of the Year title. Along with it came multiple college offers, and on National Signing Day, he committed to the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
 
Caleb began playing at the age of five for the Desoto Saints and has been playing quarterback ever since. It helps that he also runs track. His ability to get away from defenders and run for a first down had him being compared to another super quarterback’s ability from a winning Carolina team.
 
A member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Club, Caleb is a strong Christian young man and was recognized in The Dallas Morning News Neighbors GO! section in a front page article on December 4, 2016, about how his faith and family have helped him to become the outstanding scholar-athlete he is today.
 
Caleb came to Bishop Dunne from Mansfield High School in the second semester of his sophomore year. He was the starting quarterback for the high school, but knew he needed better academics to get into a good college program. His parents, Kim and Efram, are proud of his decision to work hard in the classroom as well as on the football field. One of nine children, his big brothers Trey (26), Jerod (22), and Lance (20) tried to see as many games as possible, along with big sister Rebekah (19) and his little siblings Simeon (12), Titus (10), Nathaniel (8), and Naomi (6). Falcon fans could see the family in the end zone, where Nathaniel, in a wheelchair, can view the game best.
 
Caleb’s nickname, “6 for 6,” refers to his ability to make points whenever he has the chance to reach the end zone. Falcon fans were delighted to watch him score touchdown after touchdown last fall in an undefeated regular season, and will look forward to watching his career in Louisiana—and beyond.
