On a weekly basis, Louisville Catholic Sports posts the Sullivan “20 Questions” feature that highlights a high school student-athlete in the local Catholic high school community. If there is a specific athlete that you’d like to know more about, email future suggestions to crevell@catholicsportsnet.com.

Trinity tight Caleb Murray is the subject of this week’s 20 Questions feature and has overcome several injuries.

Murray tore his ACL last winter and wasn’t expected to play a snap this season as he would likely still be rehabbing.

But, to everybody’s surprise, Murray played in the final three games of the season during Trinity’s run to the Class 6-A state title and signed with Ball State University this past Wednesday.
