Legally blind, Caleb Snapp marches for the Pirate Pride band

Local News

LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock-Cooper High School senior Caleb Snapp is legally blind, but that did not stop him from joining the Pirate Pride band.

“The biggest issue I have on the field is not having … any peripheral vision,” Caleb said. “I can’t see anything to the side of me. I can only see what is directly in front of me, and nothing below me as well.”

This is Caleb’s first year with his seeing-eye-dog, Grit. Grit stays on the sidelines for the band performances on the football field during halftime shows on Friday nights.
