We are happy to feature Kaleb Schaffer in our student-athlete spotlight. Kaleb is a senior at Bishop Ready High School in Columbus, Ohio, where he plays football and basketball. Kaleb plans to continue playing basketball in college.


Kaleb is a leader on and off the basketball court and football field. He has served as the varsity starting quarterback and is a starter on the varsity basketball team. Kaleb helped lead the football team to the Division 4 Regional Semi-Finals and helped to lead the basketball team to a District Runner-up finish. Kaleb recognizes the importance of using his platform to pay it forward. 


As a 2nd & 7 volunteer for 2 years, Kaleb has served as a positive role model for young readers in 3 schools. With Kaleb's help, approximately 400 young readers have been served through the Bishop Ready 2nd & 7 program. Kaleb enjoys having the opportunity to give back to schools and the community around him. We are so proud to have Kaleb in our huddle!
