A 10-year-old from South Beloit, Illinois named Caleb Grimaldi has been growing an impressive mullet for over two years, and now he's gunning to be crowned the National Mullet Champ.

"Proud Mullet-Loving American Boy"

I live in a small town so I can say with absolute authority that Caleb Grimaldi is your typical small-town loving boy, (and I love it!)  He loves Luke Combs, riding dirt bikes, playing sports like baseball and football, and he LOVES the USA!

While there are many things that make Caleb Grimaldi special, the one thing that sets him apart from so many others is his love for his "Mulletron".

For those that are wondering, "Mulletron" is the name Caleb has given his extraordinary mullet...
