More Calib Sturgis Content
After watching two punters get picked in the fifth round ahead of them, the Miami Dolphins decided to the pull the trigger on University of Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis with their second pick in the round and 166th overall.
“I couldn’t be more excited about staying in the state of Florida. My little brother is a huge Dolphins fan,” said Sturgis, who was on the golf course when he got the call. “This is a place that I really wanted to go and I’m just ecstatic that I get to come here.”
Sturgis was the third Florida Gator taken by the Dolphins today, joining running back Mike Gillislee and linebacker Jelani Jenkins. His family actually lives on the golf course he was playing, so that made for some interesting surroundings during his conversation with the team.
"live on hole 17, and we were just on the green right in front of my house, probably 20 yards from my house when I got the call,” Sturgis said. “So my parents actually got to come out and listen to it. I didn’t finish (the hole). It probably wouldn’t have been too good of a hole for me anyway for me.”
Fortunately for Sturgis, there are plenty of golf courses in South Florida where he can work on his game.
