Creeping Bear more than unique name

The first thing one probably notices is the name.

The second is likely the hair.

But there is far more to Eisenhower senior Caleb Creeping Bear than just a unique name and unique look.

On the field, he's spent the past four years finding ways to lock up opposing ball-carriers. Off the field, he hopes to one day help law enforcement lock up criminals.

Creeping Bear plays mostly nose guard, and though he has been lauded by coaches for his play on the field, he probably gets just as much attention for his surname. He and his family are formally recognized as Comanche Native American, and yes, he gets asked about his last name plenty.

"All the time," Creeping Bear said. "But, I like it. I like the attention."

If the last name does not get the attention of others, his shoulder-length dark hair almost certainly will.

Although he takes pride in it, Creeping Bear admits he probably doesn't even have the best head of hair on the team.

"Tavita (Ieremia), yeah," Creeping Bear said. "He doesn't really give me a hard time about mine but I give him a hard time about his.
