Football at CCS

The football program at CCS is a relative "newcomer" to the CCS athletic program and on the verge of something very special. The foundational philosophy of the entire program is constructed on four core values that bond our team: love for our teammates, the development of a man's character, the commitment to possess the highest level of conditioning, and the passion to develop fundamentals. On these foundational "rocks" rest the five pillars of discipline, attitude, teamwork, effort, and toughness.
