Calhoun High's football players, their parents and coaches came out for the annual football banquet last night at Calhoun Middle-High School.
With a 6-4 season, head football coach Bryan Sterns said "We didn't make the playoffs, but we got close," after facing five teams that did and beating two of them.
"It was a season of ups and downs, looking for perspective, a lot of growing, perseverance and humility," Sterns said, with lots of first year starters making the line-up and a number of injuries that caused problems.
