    Well deserved honor for all the players and the CCH players in particular. Vogt, Schutt and Lamb all played roles in the state championship team of 2015 and of course, almost pulled off a repeat. Great careers for all three of them. Jeremy did a fantastic job getting them in position to try for a repeat so again, I think he is deserving of the coach of the year honor.

    CCH with a very strong core returning in 2017.

    Congrats to all the players and Coach Robertson as well. It has been fun watching these players develop over the years. Hope to get to see at least some play again.
