Seven returning starters (Matt Cooper, Scott Call, Chris Stratton, Rocky Martin, Mark Starr, Dan Bowersox, and Sam Long) brought back-to-back CCC to AHS. Dan Bowersox was the CC Offensive Player of the Year, and his career totals were 2055 yards rushing and 165 points. The team defense was the best since 1946, and they held Shelby's vaunted single wing to no first downs rushing or passing. MG Rocky Martin (113 tackles) was the top lineman, and Sam Long set the interception marks (13 career) and a 103-yard return for the longest TD in AHS history.
