I would like to close out our football season by thanking the players our fans and my administration for a great year. Lots of good things can happen when we all pull together. My staff (Tyler Golden, Ron Golden, Trevor Poe and of course; legendary Calvin) all put together some long days with our players and I thank them. The season had lots of emotional swings from winning our first home game in six years to win ning our first home playoff game. Getting back into the playoffs and having a winning season was a great accomplishment for our kids. We graduate nine seniors and return lots of players with lots of playing experience and look forward to the next group of football players at Corning. These are hard times for everybody but I hope this football team has brought back some joy and fun to Corning school and community. Thanks.
