Caden Baarts is a 6'3", 180 lb., RB/DB who is a Senior at Fairmont High School. He helped the squad to a State Runner-up campaign as a junior and a 8-2 finish in his senior season, making it to the Section 3AAA Championship. Baarts is also a member of the Fairmont Cardinals Basketball and Track teams as well. He competed in the Class A State meet in the 4x200 meter relay, placing 5th in prelims and 6th in finals. Caden stepped into a larger role as a senior, moving from wide receiver to running back, while also being one of the top cornerbacks for the Cardinals. After watching one of his games this season at Luverne, he seemed to have a quieter game statistically, but still played a great game. He has explosive speed, great vision, agility, and does not shy away from contact. Defensively, he is primarily covering the opponents top receiver, he spends the whole time in the receivers hip pocket so it is hard for them to make many plays. I was able to interview Caden about his senior season and his recruiting process recently. Check it out below!
