Caleb Venne | Football
Venne, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound senior for the Granite City Warriors is this week's Granite City AdVantage News Athlete of the Week after being named to the all-Southwestern Conference football team.
Venne garnered first team all-conference honors for his work on the Warriors' offensive line and second team honors as a defensive lineman.
As a junior Venne made all-conference for both positions also. He was named second team offensive lineman and third team defensive lineman.
Granite City charged out of the gates in 2015 with its first 2-0 start since 2011 when the program last made the playoffs. Venne was a key cog in that strong start and for the rest of the season as the Warriors finished with a 2-7 mark.
Venne had 34 total tackles and a sack on defense for GCHS. He even threw a touchdown pass on offense in a Week 7 game at Alton.
