Home of NFL pro, former Maiden quarterback explodes in Mooresville

CHARLOTTE — The home of current NFL player and former Maiden quarterback Caleb Farley collapsed Tuesday after a possible explosion near Lake Norman in Mooresville.

Farley was featured as a Big 22 player to watch in 2016 when he was set to play football at Virginia Tech.

He originally intended to be a wide receiver, however, an injury caused him to convert into a cornerback.

In 2021, Farley was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. After a series of injuries, he was placed on injury reserve in November of 2022.

On August 22, 2023, a home owned by Farley collapsed around 12 a.m. due to an unknown explosion.

One person was later found dead in the debris. Family members confirmed the victim is Robert Farley, Caleb Farley’s father.

Caleb Farley wasn’t inside the home when the explosion occurred, according to officials in Iredell County. The cause of the explosion is under investigation at this time.
