  • Prep football notebook: Chatfield brings roster depth to 4A

    Chatfield Senior High head coach Bret McGatlin saw the talent. He knows that the skills are there in 4A. He saw that first-hand. 

    Arguably, the top eight teams or so, according to McGatlin, could make a run in 5A. But if there’s something the Chargers are bringing with them in their reclassification in 4A, it’s numbers – lots of them.

    Don’t support moving sixth-graders to middle school

    Editor:

    AN INAUSPICIOUS START
