A Metcalfe County teen who died in a wreck Thursday night in Adair County was a well-liked freshman baseball player at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia.
Caleb A. Capps, 18, of Edmonton, was killed Thursday night in a crash nine miles north of Columbia on Ky. 551.
“Caleb was the type of kid who always had a smile on his face,” said Jonathan Burton, head baseball coach for Lindsey Wilson. “He was a very hard worker and a talented baseball player.”
Burton continued that Capps always seemed to bring the best out in his teammates and was “a very proper young man; a yes sir, no sir kind of person.”
“He will be missed,” Burton said. “I know his teammates are hurting right now.”
A story posted on the college’s athletic website about Capps included these words from Burton: “Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for Caleb and his family. I consider him a young man that always went out of his way to help anyone he could — that’s a Godly trait.”
The story also contained comments from Capps’ teammates.
