Coach’s Outlook for 2015: “We have so many players who are ready to step into leading roles, emerging from the supportive roles they may have taken in the past. We are confident that we will have a dynamic offense once again, and we have some very exciting defensive players returning who are athletic and intense, and will be ready to take over the defense and make it theirs.

“We lost a large part of our defense, pretty much the entire starting squad. Graduating the number of seniors we did (14) and the types of players who were in that group, on both sides of the ball, will be very hard to replace. We have some returners who we know are ready to step up into those leading roles, and some new players who will surprise the valley.”

Coach’s outlook: “This year will be an exciting year of growth for CCCHS. We are a young team with some experienced young talent who will be led by our top returners. The positive chemistry on the team is palpable even at this early stage. It is a disciplined team driven to work hard.”
