Inductees

Tonight we attended the annual Rockin' With the Raiders dinner at CCHS... where 3 former CCHS football players were inducted into the Wall of Fame.  We've been attending these dinners for several years, but it has only been the last couple of years that we've actually had a connection to the inductees.  I didn't know the young men who were the recipients this year, but I did watch them play when they were in high school and they were a part of that football family atmosphere that attracted us to the school. All three of these boys went on to attend, play football for and graduate from UC Berkeley.  All of them not only outstanding athletes (one is currently a Tampa Bay Buccaneer) but accomplished in their educational goals as well.  As I listened to them speak I was moved by their humble gratitude for the education and experience they had while attending Central Catholic.  They were all so appreciative and gave credit to the football family for the success they had gone on to achieve.  What a blessing not only to be a small part of that family but to be a witness to the positive impact it has on the young men that work so hard to be a part of it.
