AREA FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS

Congratulations to the Clifton Cubs Football Team on winning the Bi-District Championship on Friday night.  This is the 4th consecutive year that the Cubs have advanced to the Area Round of the Texas Football Playoffs.  The Cubs will face Garrison on Friday, November 24th at Athens.  Kickoff will be 7:30pm.  The Cubs will be the visitors.  Ticket prices are $6 for adults and $4 for students.  Come out and cheer the Cubs on to victory!

BACK TO BACK DISTRICT CHAMPIONS!  
The Clifton Cubs are back to back District 11-3A Champions.  This is first time in 20 years that the Cubs have won back to back championships and the first time since 1971 that the Cubs are in the playoffs for four consecutive years.  Great job men.
Twelve members of the Clifton High School Football program joined coaches Chuck Caniford and Chip Mayfield in participating in the Caring Beyond Competition volunteer disaster relief effort on Tuesday in Wimberley, Texas.  Wimberley was recently hit with devastating floods, which destroyed hundreds of homes in the community and tragically took the lives of 11 people on Memorial Day weekend.  The Blanco River crested at 43 feet, while the flood stage is 13 feet.  
 
The Cubs took part in this effort to help residents with the cleanup and rebuilding effort.  The guys met at the Clifton High School fieldhouse at 4:45am and headed out on the three hour drive.  While in Wimberley, the Cubs were assigned to work at a home that had been completely gutted by the flood waters.  Work they performed while on site included: clearing brush, trees, rocks and trash that had washed onto the property, cutting down trees that were destroyed, breaking and removing tile from inside the home, setting new corner and t-posts to reconstruct property fence, and clearing trash and debris from river bank.  
 
The Cubs were paired with the Steele Knights from Cibolo, Texas.  With over 50 players and coaches on-site at this property, the athletes and coaches from Clifton and Steele were able to complete a lot of work to assist the residents.  It was a great day of volunteer work and was inspiring seeing student-athletes and coaches gather from around the state to assist the community of Wimberley.  Over 400 student-athletes from 19 schools participated in the program.  Members of the Cub Football Program that participated included: Clayton Caniford, Jesus Enriquez, Trevor Ernst, Hutch Kettler, Jordan Larance, Travis Nickel, Shane Raines, Hunter Ringo, Edgar Rodriguez, Alex Simpson, Tanner Thomas and Brayden Wise.
