  • Boys basketball: Turnover...

    Part of wearing a Chatfield boys basketball jersey is the expectation that comes with it. However, for the 2014-15 season, those expectations might have to be altered a bit considering the turnover the Chargers underwent this year.

    Chatfield graduated 10 seniors from last year’s 20-5 squad, which won its second straight 5A Jeffco League championship, and lost another key player, sophomore Riley Welch, who transferred out of state.

  • Caudill has a passion for riding

    Dalton Caudill, then 3 years old, rarely watched television, but he pulled up a chair while at grandma’s house and sat attentively watching the screen. His attention span, normally non-existent, wasn’t about to waver. He was fixated on watching motocross.

    “It came on, and I was watching it for a while, and I liked it. I was like, “I want to do that,’” said Dalton, who is now 7.

    It was a question that Jeffco Midget Football Association (JMFA) head coach for the Dakota Ridge Eagles, Dave Loomis, faced in all seriousness during the middle of a “very intense play” earlier this season. It was the kind of question that reminded Loomis that coaching 8 to 10-year-old football isn’t as straight-forward as it might seem.
