Changes for 2020

This season our JFL league will be playing “within house”.
What “within house” means is 
that we will be splitting our players up on different teams to play against each other. We will be combining the incoming 5th and 6th graders into teams which will play each other during the season. We will also have our 3rd and 4th graders combine into teams which will play each other during the season too. We will also continue to have a fundamental league for our 2nd graders that is based off of our past experiences with this age group. All of these games will occur in Columbia City and be played against our own teams which will limit the travel/contact of our players during this time. This will also allow us to control the variables that may arise through the league during the year and take the dependence of other communities out of the equation for our league.


Recognition Night at CCHS


Below is a quote from a former CCHS football player (Buddy O’Dell) to his father about why he loves Football…

“Dad, it’s because in the history of mankind, there has never been a game which  requires such a broad range of people to work together to accomplish one common goal. There has never been a game which has so many strategies and tactics, that the fate of a season can lie in one single moment that is only ten seconds long. There is no other game which months and months of planning and preparation are prompted to change in the course of action on any given Friday night. There is no other game which can cause tears, both of the triumph victory or the heart wrenching plummet of defeat. Or simply just tears of brotherhood and camaraderie. No other game calls for so much effort, that physically and emotionally, one can only endure one game a week. Which sets the spot light for one night. One time to shine. And no other game gives you the opportunity to become legendary, whether that be in your own eyes or the ones around you. Its football dad! It’s the greatest game in the world!”
