I'm an alumni as well as siblings, nephew & cousins in my family.
It is unfair that the player work hard to make varsity only for it to be cut. What about football scholarship opportunities for these young people? Seems really unfair.

As an alumni, I am very sad to hear about this. CHS football players are not the first football players to have broken bones; it's a risk that comes with the sport. If the parents and the students consent, the administration should not get involved. This decision is hurting more than just those 49 players. This decision is also hurting the jv football players, band, pep sqaud, dance drill, and the rest of the CHS athletic programs that depend on the revenue from football.

This sets a bad precedent, and it is a copout by Administration.

This is important to me because Varsity has been working so hard, ecpecially the seniors who has been here for four years! they want to end there year being on varsity not getting pushed down to junior varsity. and the underclass men deserve to be on varsity too because they work there way up there. We cant just take varsity away from them when they tried so hard. its like they did all that work for nothing. That's why this is important to me. They deserve it!

As a former Cerritos High School football player, who played for Coach Kurt Bruich, I disagree with dropping the varsity football program. Coach Bruich realized that Cerritos students had an obstacle to combat, size. For this reason we worked 10 X harder than other teams. Working 10 x harder meant Lifting all summer, 6:00 a.m., with only 2 allowed absences, no excuses. This also meant full weight training, on a whistle system, during season unlike our competition (Artesia, Norwalk, John Glenn, Mayfair, La Mirada, and Gahr). Players lifted fully then practiced. This was because it was a known fact that players were undersized and if we were to compete, succeed, we had to work harder. Our coach realized that we needed to be stronger and he made us competitors.
Losing the program will be depriving present and possible f
uture students the pride and success that so many past students have experienced. If players were to lose nine games and only win one, how great do think that one win would feel? Under Coach Kurt Bruich we had winning seasons. Player size and capabilities haven't changed that much.
