Vorig jaar zat Calvin nog in de schoolbanken van het Keizer Karel College in Amstelveen en volleybalde hij in het 1e team van PDK Huizen. Nu studeert en volleybalt Calvin in Amerika aan de Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan.
Na het eerste semester, en de vakantie in Nederland is ook het wedstrijdseizoen voor de Blue Devils begonnen. Hieronder een wedstrijdverslag van 3-1 overwinning op het team van Olivet College.
