John Gaddis has led the Calallen defense for years. The Wildcats senior defensive back intercepted two passes in Calallen's region semifinal win against Boerne Champion, helping to seal the win.
Calallen's suffocating defense held a Chargers offense that previously averaged 280 pass yards per game to 130 pass yards and only one touchdown.
Gaddis is also a member of the always impressive Calallen baseball team's starting pitching rotation.
You can watch Gaddis and the rest of the 'Cats' impressive defense Friday at 7:30 at the Alamodome, as they play for a Region IV title against Victoria East.
