Favorite CN Memory

” I have so many great memories.. probably either qualifying for the State Championships in Track and Field my Sr. Year.

Or just how much fun we had playing football. The
2 a days practice in the summer, the games , bus rides after a win.. loved every minute of it.
The sense of togetherness, knowing we’d worked so hard and come together to accomplish something special.. great memories..”

Thank you Jim!
