Early years[edit]
As a military dependant, Calloway attended three high schools in four years. He graduated from Belleville East High School in Belleville, Illinois, where he was an all-city and all-conference tackle as a senior, and also played tight end and primarily defensive tackle as a junior.
Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Calloway was ranked 55th among offensive tackle prospects in the nation.[4] He chose Iowa over Missouri, Kansas, and Arizona.
College career[edit]
After redshirting his initial year at Iowa, Calloway saw limited action as a back-up at left guard in 2006. In 2007, he became the starting left tackle, but was replaced with Bryan Bulaga and moved to right tackle in 2008. He received an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention as a junior.[5]
In 2009, Calloway was listed at No. 13 on Rivals.com′s preseason offensive tackle power ranking.[6] In June of that year, he was arrested and “charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated” while driving a moped.[7]
Professional career[edit]
On June 8, 2010, Calloway signed a multi-year contract with the Buffalo Bills. He was released on August 30, 2010.
