Kyle Caldwell Named To Hendricks Award Watch List For 2005
June 25, 2005
Arizona State University defensive end Kyle Caldwell has been named to the 2005 Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year Award preseason watch list.
Caldwell, a junior from Scottsdale, shared the team lead with seven quarterback sacks last season. He started all 12 games at end. In addition to his sacks, Caldwell showed his athleticism by hauling in an interception, collecting 26 tackles and breaking up four passes. He played in 11 games in 2003 as a true freshman and was a co-winner of ASU's freshman-of-the-year award. Caldwell was recognized as a Hard Hat Player for his work in ASU's winter strength and conditioning program each of the last two seasons.
In 2003, Caldwell was named to The Sporting News Pac-10 All-Freshman Team and was a co-winner of the Bill Kajikawa Sun Devil Award, which is given to the most outstanding freshman. He tallied 18 tackles, including 10 solo stops, recorded two sacks for a loss of eight yards and had three tackles for loss for nine yards.
Named for Ted Hendricks, a University of Miami three-time Collegiate All-American and NFL hall of famer, the award is based on several criteria including on-field performance, leadership abilities, and contributions to school and community. Candidates may represent any class (freshman though senior) from any four-year NCAA accredited school, according to the Hendricks Foundation release.
