Caleb Terry

Caleb was born in Durham, NC; however, he calls Bahama, NC his hometown.  He attended Northern Durham High School, and played lacrosse there.  He graduated from Catawba College in Salisbury, NC with a BA in History and a Minor in Secondary Education.  He played three years of lacrosse on their DII team.

Caleb got interested in lacrosse when he was about 13 (2001), and his cousin started playing and going to camps.  When he was 15 (2003) NDHS added lacrosse as a varsity sport, so he has been playing or around the sport for about 17 years.  After high school, he played NCAA DII Lacrosse at Catawba College as a D-Middy (2008-2010).  After graduating college, he got his first teaching job at his alma mater Northern Durham High, and began coaching there as the varsity head coach and program coordinator (2011-2014).  Then, he met his wife at a teaching conference while he was working there.  However, she was originally from Philadelphia and they decided to move there after three years at Northern Durham.  They lived in Philadelphia for five years.  At that time, he taught European History and was the varsity boys lacrosse head coach and program coordinator for Camden Catholic High School in Cherry Hill, NJ (2014-2019).  In that time, his wife decided to go back to school to become a dietitian.  To complete her coursework she had to complete a dietetic internship.  They made a visit to New Orleans, fell deeply in love with the city, and decided to move here to complete her internship; they never want to leave.  Once he moved here in 2019, Caleb decided he wanted to take a hiatus from coaching so he could start his new teaching position at Archbishop Chapelle High on a clean slate, which is when he decided to referee.  He stated that Bill and I made the transition to officiating simple and easy and he is thoroughly enjoying it.  He decided to start officiating because he loves the game of lacrosse.  However, he was ready to step away from coaching, but didn’t want to leave the game completely. Reffing was the best option; it is a decision he’s ecstatic that he made.

Caleb is currently living in New Orleans, and has been here for about a year and a half.  He is a European History Teacher at Archbishop Chapelle High School. His hobbies are reading historical nonfiction books, walking his dogs, Philadelphia Eagle Football (Go Birds), and traveling to Europe.  An interesting fact about Caleb is that he is currently learning German, and he can call square dances.
