GOODING, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Another Gooding Senator Football star has decided to continue his career into college.
"It’s cool to see dreams and goals be realized, that's the coolest thing there," said Gooding Head Coach Cameron Anderson.
In a cafeteria filled with classmates, Cayden Loveland formally signed the papers and is taking his education and football career to Carroll College in Montana.
"When he called me from Carroll and said hey I'm thinking of signing here, he felt like he was at home,” Anderson said. “He truly felt comfortable and that's what I try to tell them. Go visit everywhere and sign where you think you're going to be comfortable."
Cayden had six other offers but decided on Carroll for academics.
"Carroll stood out because of its engineering program, and the only other school was Montana Tech,” Cayden explained. “I just like Helena a lot and after my visit there it was such a cool place, the athletes there, the students and all of the facilities are super nice. I talked with a professor on my visit and that's what really pushed me over the edge to commit and it just felt like home"
Gooding Head Coach Cameron Anderson is proud of Cayden’s decision and feels he will be an immediate impact player.
"Offensively they run almost exactly what we run. So to have that presence on the edge like we're able to have is key for their offense. They saw right away a guy that is a high level talent and he'll play early for Carroll," Anderson said.
This past season he led the 3A with 70 catches to go along with 21 touchdowns. His other achievements include being named to the All-State Football Team and the USA Today All-Idaho team member
