Estherville Lincoln Central senior Caleb Caboth signed a letter of intent on Friday to play football at Morningside College this fall.

Caboth, a 6-1 all-district defensive back, led the Midgets in interceptions with eight with 83 return yards.

He also had a fumble recovery returned for 5 yards, two sacks for minus 7 yards, 32 unassisted tackles and 35 assisted tackles in helping the Midgets to their second straight Class 2A District title and playoff appearance.

On offense, where he played wingback, Caboth scored five touchdowns 13 catches for 317 yards and four carries for 21 yards.

In a note to Caboth, Morningside football coach Steve Ryan said, “I’m excited about have you come to Morningside. This is a great place that just became better.”

Morningside College posted a 9-3 record during the 2007 football season and made its fourth straight appearance in the NAIA National Playoffs. The Mustangs, who were ranked 11th nationally in the final NAIA regular season poll, reached the NAIA Quarterfinals after a 45-14 first round victory against sixth-ranked Jamestown College.

Morningside was second in the Great Plains Athletic Conference standings with an 8-2 mark.

Caboth will join ELC graduates Wade Planting and Ben Haugen on the Mustang roster.
