What is she known for? After minimal appearances in her first two seasons as a Wildcat, Arnold became a regular behind the plate during her junior and senior seasons, including becoming the personal catcher to Amy Letourneau at one point in time. She earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in both her junior and senior seasons. 

Here's something interesting... In the first collegiate start of her career, Arnold hit what would be the only home run of her four seasons in purple, a longball that tied the game in what ultimately became a Wildcat victory over North Carolina.

Quotable quote: "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! If you work hard, set goals, and pursue what you love with a fiery passion—no one can stop you... I believe it is very important to be coachable and willing to learn from the people around you. Some of the best advice and critique I was ever given only came to me because I was a willing learner. Oh, and always--- just have fun and enjoy the game!"

What's she up to now? After an internship with USA Today Sports Images during her junior year at Northwestern, Caylor "got the bug" for action photography. She currently works as a contract photographer and editor for USA Today Sport Images and the Chicago Cubs. In her role, she attended and photographed the 2016 World Series and witnessed the Cubs win their first series in 108 years. She has also photographed the College Football Playoff National Championship; the Memorial (golf) Tournament; and the Big Ten Football Championship game.
