Fans' Choice Player of the Week: Caleb Ricks
BATON ROUGE - He might not be the most vocal guy in the locker room, but his talent speaks for itself on the field.
St. Amant cornerback Caleb Ricks played a large role in the Gators' 23-8 victory over district rival, East Ascension, last Friday and won Fans' Choice Player of the Week.
Ricks intercepted two passes, returned one for a touchdown and nearly snagged a third.
It was his first varsity start and head coach David Oliver always knew that Ricks had something special.
"He always plays well. He doesn't get a lot of activity usually because people don't challenge him, but they challenged him in this game, and he made the best of those opportunities," Oliver said.
Caleb Ricks has learned a lot from his older brother, Elias Ricks. Elias played football for LSU, Alabama and now with the Philadelphia Eagles. While he says his brother did teach him a lot about hard work, Caleb wants to be his own person.
St. Amant is 6-0 so far this season and this is their best start since 2015. They will look to keep that win streak alive this Friday against Denham Springs.
