Kevin Cave is stepping down as baseball coach and teacher at Central Catholic High to attend law school at the University of Oregon starting this fall.
Cave, who guided the Rams to the Class 6A championship game against Westview in 2011, graduated from Central Catholic in 1998. He began teaching at the school in 2006, after completing his studies at Concordia University.
Cave described the decision as a "tough one" in an email to people in the Central Catholic program.
He said he decided, though, not to "pass up this opportunity to go after a dream."
"Central Catholic is a big part of my life," he said, "and it always will be."
