After defeating Vista Ridge on Nov. 6 with a score of 49-21, one point off from the score in last years game, CP went 10-0 and was named the 25 5A District champions.

Senior receiver #16 Jack Grimm started off the game with a TD for CP, and Vista responded with a TD as well.

Grimm scored multiple touchdowns throughout the game including one that is in the running for Time Warner Cable’s Play of the Week.

“It feels pretty good to get a little reward for all the work we’ve been putting in,” Grimm said. “We still have a lot more work to do though.”

During the game, offense struggled with penalties but also came together as a team, according to senior wide receiver #5 Tommy Lavine.

“Our strengths during the game was our focus and trust with each other,” Lavine said. “We knew if we were all in we could count on each other to make a play. Something that we can work on is trying not to make silly mistakes, like penalties.”

CPFB went into the game with complete focus, according to Grimm.

“We just had to stay focused because we knew we should win and this was the game that determined if we were outright district champions, and it would be pretty sweet to be 10-0,” Grimm said.

Linebacker coach Steve Battles shared his feelings on winning the game.

“It was a great win for everyone, especially our seniors,” Battles said. “They’ve done a great job all year of leading the team. 10-0 District champs was on the list of goals and now it’s time to focus on the play-offs.”

Battles is appreciative towards the community and all the fans for supporting CPFB throughout the whole season.

“We would like to thank all the support of our administrators, teachers, students, parents and community,” Battles said. “It takes everyone’s support both on and off the field to have a successful program.”
