    Congrats to all CCC football players, head coach and staff. It seems that the CCC players can be compared to the New Orleans Saints....winning for the first time in the playoffs. The fact that all are continuing their education makes the struggle to achieve even more worthy, wonderful, and fulfilling for all seeing these players going forward. Education is the key to success, and I see several players from Rosedale.......got relatives down there......and Rosedale is so small and these young men are making progress despite the odds. Actually it's just great to see every player moving forward, as the odds usually don't leave this type of success record.......I Salute All You Players For Hanging In There and Trying To Be Somebody!!!! JUST SO PROUD OF YOU ALL!! My Thanks to the STAFF as Well for being the ROLE MODELS THESE PLAYERS NEEDED, AND THE PARENTS, OTHERS SUPPORTING.

    Hey, to all you CCC,sophomore that do not get sign there are Universities and Colleges that would let you Walk-On or Try-Out for their football team ! Ask your SID to help locate those Insitutions that offer these opportunities. It all about Education byway of Sports. You guy that Believe can do this. if you Believe you can play regardless, on a University level why not walk-on. Good Luck..

Thanks goes out to all those Universities and Colleges that made offers to these Winner. Coach Horton,and your staff are the Best. Continue to make CCC Football program a winner.
