2017 Season Preview- CBA Brothers ready to repeat
The 2017 High School Football season is soon to be underway.
Practices open on Monday, the season starts with a couple games on August 31 and gets going in earnest on Friday September 1.
The nature of amateur sports in high school and college, teams are always different because of graduation and influxes of underclassmen.
Consider then, that CBA returns so many stars including quarterback Sir Vocea Dennis and running back Stevie Scott who's committed to Rutgers.
That, coupled with the Brothers going all the way to the New York State Final Four in 2016 lands CBA as the favorite heading into the new campaign.
That's not to say powers like Baldwinsville, C-NS, and Nottingham (who almost pulled off a major upset in the first round of Sectionals over CBA) can't do it, they just have to beat CBA to claim the crown.
The Brothers boast the tradition, the talent and the experience that has them ready to repeat as Section III Champion.
"These kids will wear the CBA crest all over the place and people will stop them and talk to them and ask them "what's it like to be at CBA?" "what's it like to be a part of the football program at CBA?" and you're right they do talk with pride about what they've been able to accomplish" says Head Coach Casey Brown.
"Football is hard, education at CBA is hard but these guys come to CBA to strive to be successful not just in football, not just in academics, but in life" Brown adds.
CBA opens the season with a rare Sunday night high school game, taking on Henninger at the Carrier Dome on Sunday September 3rd at 8pm.
