Porter Caldwell set Arizona
high school records before
going on a 2-year church mission to Chile.

ALAMOSA, Colo.— Adams State College men’s basketball coach Mark Murdock announced that Porter Caldwell, formerly of Snowflake (Ariz.) High School, has signed a letter of intent to play for the Grizzlies starting next year.
Caldwell, a 6-foot-1, 185 pound guard averaged 27 points per game as a SHS senior and 24 points as a junior for the Lobos in 2003 before going on a 2-year church mission to Chile. Upon his return, Caldwell has attended Scottsdale Community College and now Arizona State University but did not play basketball at either.
He will have three seasons of eligibility at ASC.
While in high school, Caldwell set the Arizona Class 3A state records, which still remain intact, for single-season and career scoring as he tallied 958 points in 2003 to cap his 2,484-point career. He also still holds the all-classification record for career 3-pointers (153).
A 3-time all-conference selection for coach Shane Brimhall’s Lobos, Caldwell was named to the all-state team while earning conference MVP honors in 2003. He was also a 2-time all-conference football player earning 3A East Conference MVP honors in 2001.
Caldwell, who is married to Domini, plans to major in biology with a minor in agri-business.
He is the middle of five children born to Mark and Marsha Caldwell. Sister Misti, 20, is currently playing basketball at Eastern Arizona College.

We've been taggest - 6 facts about us!

Well we are not too interesting but here goes...
1) We have been married for 2 years and 4 months and cannot believe how fast time a flown by! I waited for Porter when he was on his mission and 2 months after he returned we were married in the Snowflake Temple. We love being married and are so blessed to be sealed forever!
2) A little about Porter... He loves to be active and outdoors so his pool cleaning job and schooling in horticulture are perfect for him. Porter seems like he is quiet until you get to know him. Just ask my family, they thought he was quite until after our first Christmas together when we were on vacation in Hawaii and we shared a minivan all week. By the third day he was singing the highest-pitched songs at the top of his lungs for hours. That was definitely some family bonding time. Oh.. he is also very talented (if you ask me). He is a pro at most sports. "Lucky"
3) A little about Domini... Well after thinking that I didn't have a hobby (that is once Porter got home from his mission, because then letter writing and packages were my hobby) I tried to find my real hobby. Porter and I took up Tennis for a few months off and on. I tried real hard to get a passion for it but it never quite came. HAHA. I guess when I really face the facts I just love to dance, cook and try to make things nutritious but still taste good! (Oh, and I am a bit of a clean freak too...Germs freak me out!)
4) We are super cheap! When the weekend rolls around the place we go to eat depends on what coupons I have collected that week. It is actually kind of fun to see home much we can get for little money. We get to try new restaurants this way too! I clip the good ol' coupons, price match at wal-mart, wash the car the old fashioned way, etc. (We sound like a lot of fun to hang out with huh! haha j/k)
5) We love to spend time together. Everyday we go for a run and try to do exercises in our home gym we have created. Porter pulls one of the cars out of the garage and we set up some weights, get out a jump rope and all sorts of interesting equipment we have collected at the secondhand store. (Again, we are too cheap to buy a gym membership. For a while we went from gym to gym with the 1 month free pass but we ran out of options! :) )

Well.. now you all know how weird we are I tag Kiara Vowell, Heidi Broadbent, and Amber Jarvis.

Porter gettings his envelope off the money tree! He looks pleased with his choice!

Well... it has been over a week now and I am just getting to posting some pictures of Thanksgiving. We had a blast seeing so many of our family members in Snowflake for Thanksgiving. We ate dinner at Porter's Aunt Joyce's house and it was delicious. Grandma and Gramps Dayton came down from Utah and we got to have a little family Christmas party with them too! It is never too early to celebrate Christmas right! We had a blast and are so thankful for all that we have been blessed with this year!
