Player Spotlight: Caidyn Kladder, ATH 2024

When discussing 2024 prospect Caidyn Kladder, it’s hard to know where to start.

This 6-foot-0, 200-pound linebacker/tight end hybrid is a player just starting to come into his own. Currently attending West Ottawa High School in Michigan, Kladder is going up against some of the top talent in the country. As co-captain, there is no question about his leadership qualities.

In all of his academic years, Kladder has never failed to make the honor roll; there are not many athletes out there today that can put that feather in their cap. Kladder plans on running track this upcoming season after football and was also a pretty good wrestler at 171 pounds.

Kladder had a great offseason, excelling at several camps including Lake Forest, Valparaiso, and Lindenwood. This young man is just an all-around great athlete, but don’t let his high grade-point average fool you — he’s as tough as they come.

“I’m expecting a huge year out of Kladder,” said Coach Lou Perrone of the well-know recruiting service, My Recruits. “He’s extremely athletic but also plays with a mean streak.”

When it comes to 2024 athletes, don’t be surprised if Kladder emerges as one of the best from the Wolverine State.
