Challengers News · Football: 2019 Challengers Kick It Off With Pirates


Over the years, the faces change, yet somehow the Cascade Christian Challengers football program produces results. In the last 10 years the program has produced two state championships (2013,17) and a pair of runner-up finishes (2012,18). Can anybody remember the last time they had a losing season? Coach Jon Gettman may know, and he would tell you it was a long time ago.

Even with newer faces in bigger roles, no one’s expecting any change in terms of production. The players and coaches have worked too hard, and there’s just too much talent.

Some familiar faces will lead the Challengers charge against Phoenix. One expects Kiegan Schaan, Kristian Fralich, Elijah Smith, Cade Sample, Gabe Pierson and Michael Croy to hunker down and do what they do. Along with a burgeoning freshman class, there’s a roster of 39 players, offering a range of experience and youth.

Tonight’s game will kick off at 7 pm. The game will also be broadcast on The Nail.
