Former student tapped to lead boys hoops program

The Cassville boys basketball team will have a new coach for the 2022-23 season, and one who has a history with the Wildcats.


The district has hired Caleb Reynolds to lead the program beginning July 1.

Reynolds has experience both playing and coaching men’s basketball at the collegiate and high school level. Most recently, he has served as the head coach at Dora High School. Prior to his time at Dora, Reynolds led the team at Silver High School in Silver City, N.M.

After completing his education and his own college athletic career, Reynolds was an assistant coach at both Western New Mexico University and Crowley’s Ridge College in Paragould, Ark. While working at Crowley’s Ridge, he also served in the athletic department as an academic coordinator and assisted in coordinating summer youth basketball camps on campus.

Reynolds is no stranger to Wildcat Nation and is thrilled to once again wear black and gold. His father, Don Reynolds, previously served as an administrator at Cassville. During that time, Caleb attended kindergarten through third grade in Cassville. His family relocated due to a career opportunity in a different community.

“I am thrilled to be coming back to Cassville after so many years,” Reynolds said. “My wife, Annely, and I look forward to being a part of this great community and school.”

Reynolds has a Master’s of Art in Educational Leadership from Western New Mexico University and a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Harding University. He will be teaching physical education and health at Cassville High School.

“Wildcat Nation is excited to welcome Coach Caleb Reynolds,” said Doug Martin, Cassville athletic director. “Coach Reynolds has a passion for developing skills and embodies the values and character traits we value in our men’s basketball program. I look forward to seeing him in action.”

“There is a great foundation in Cassville to build a very competitive boys basketball program,” Reynolds said. “I’m excited to get in the gym with the boys and get to work preparing for the upcoming season. Go Wildcats!”
