Last Thursday Chris Callahan talked with Coach Kendal Briles and during the conversation he was offered a scholarship to Baylor. BearsTruth was able to catch up with Chris today after committing to the Bears.
BearsTruth: We heard you were offered, but hadn't been able to get in touch with you until today. How did it all go down?
Chris: "I was offered a week ago by Coach (Kendal) Briles and it was like a dream come true, but I wanted to wait and be 100% sure."
BearsTruth: Today was the day?
Chris: "Yes sir. I talked it over with my mom and I knew this is where I wanted to be."
BearsTruth: Recruiting as a kicker or punter or both?
Chris: "Kicker and punter."
BearsTruth: What sold you on the program?
Chris: "The education, the team, the facilities. Everything is great. You get a private school education in a major conference."
BearsTruth: Have they scheduled your visit?
Chris: "Yes sir. I'll be coming in on 2/1."
Chris was named First Team All-State in 2011 and 2012 and a Top 12 kicker nationally by Chris Sailer Kicking.
