2024 – “Caulley stepped on the practice field for his first fall on Grounds without any hesitation. He quickly showed us that the moment would not be too big for him. Caulley has the tools of a skilled craftsman: great stickwork, accurate shooter and ground ball hoover. But he also brings an edge that boldly exclaims he will not back down to any challenge. Take an extra check to get to the front of the goal? Yes. Expose himself to body blows? Yes. Slash you back in the riding phase? For darn sure.”
