Student Spotlight: Salida’s Jackson Karls

The mountain biking season is a quick one for the high school athletes in Colorado. The state meet is right around the corner, and we caught up with Jackson Karls, who qualified for the meet as a freshman.

Find out what he has been up to this year in the sport and how he feels his first foray into the high school level has gone!

Caleb Burggraaf

A Colorado native, Burggraaf has had a passion for sports broadcasting since he was a freshman in high school in Pagosa Springs.

This led him to Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University) in Grand Junction, where he became the Sports Director at KMSA 91.3 in just his sophomore year. By the time he graduated, Caleb built a broadcasting program that covered nearly 400 games in the two and a half years.

2018 was his first year as a member of Heart of the Rockies Radio, and Caleb helped bring over 200 games and local games to the airwaves, and he is looking forward to continuing that path this season as the sports program continues to grow!
