Player Spotlight: Caleb Clayton-Molby
"One of the reason I moved was to get more college exposure," said Caleb Clayton-Molby. "Florida has great football. The competition is intense. In Kansas it's just a game, but here it's a lifestyle. I love it." This summer Clayton-Molby camped at Nebraska, Kansas State, Florida State, and Northwest Missouri State. He left one campus with one big offer. "At Nebraska I thought I played well," said Clayton-Molby. "Their facilities were awesome. I wasn't really impressed with the coaches and their interaction. But, it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed meeting many of the other players who were there. I haven't been hearing from them lately. "Kansas State, I loved," Clayton-Molby said of his experience in Manhattan. "I also thought I did well there. I was loving the staff. The people there are friendly, and it has the feel of a family setting. It was awesome. I'm still receiving letters from them, and they want me to come up for a game this season. They're going to be watching my senior year and let me know about a possible offer. "At Florida State I think I did my best. They had me playing tight end although I'm probably too short to play the position in college. I was catching a lot of balls thrown to me and did well on defense at linebacker. I think I sparked their interest." Jimbo Fisher and staff must have been impressed because they offered Clayton-Molby during the camp, and he couldn't be more excited. "I love all of the coaches," Clayton-Molby said of the FSU staff. "I spoke a lot with Coach (James) Coley, the offensive coordinator and tight ends coach. The facilities are great. Everything there is very team oriented. They're working hard for this season. This is my 5th year going to the FSU camp, and in my previous four I've never seen anything like it." Clayton-Molby is 6-2, 220, and runs a 4.85 40. Last year at Eudora, he was named All-State honorable mention (4A) at linebacker. He made more than 120 tackles, was voted team MVP, and helped the team to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. Although he doesn't fit into the typical mold most colleges and recruiting services like to dub "athlete", Clayton-Molby plays a variety of positions well. "As a freshman I started at tight end," said Clayton-Molby. "Then I was moved to the line as a sophomore at offensive guard and defensive end. In the middle of my junior season I was put at linebacker. This year at Arnold I'm going to play both fullback and linebacker." Clayton-Molby says he's had a good summer and is transitioning easy with his fellow Marlins. They have one goal in mind for the 2010 season- winning. "It's been awesome being here," said Clayton-Molby of his new locale. "My goal is to be the team's leading tackler. Winning state is our ultimate goal. That would be huge. I'd also like to make All-State." Arnold travels to Libery, Mississisppi to play Amite County in the first game of the season on September 10th. Although he loves the FSU offer he's hoping to continue to impress and gain more recognition in recruiting circles. "My lower body strength, my hip movement, footwork, and my ability to read plays are some of what I have that help me stand out as a football player," said Clayton-Molby. "In the camps I really worked on my reads and hope that pays off with a big season this year." At Eudora Clayton-Molby also wrestled coming in 4th in his weight class last year in the state as well as running tack. His only extracurricular activity this year is football. "The last thing I need to do is injury myself wrestling," said Clayton-Molby. "In making my college choice I think location will be a big factor for me. I'd like to play in-state, close to home, if I'm being offered a full ride. I'm looking at school with majors I'm interested in such as sports medicine or physical therapy. But I'd say I'm real high on FSU." The Marlins will play in a three team Jamboree on August 26th at Bozeman with Port St. Joe. They will scrimmage each team for one half. They hope to make a turnaround under coach James Hale after a 4-6 season last year.
