What this 2018 Colfax Falcons football team has accomplished does not surprise me. Actually, I expected last year's squad to get to this point, but that was Bear River's afternoon. The seniors on this squad won their first of five successive championships in 2010 as Junior Falcon Pee Wees, Junior Midgets and Midgets ... including two Sacramento Football League "Super Bowls" as Midgets.
Having left Colfax in 2015, I believe their only losses as freshmen and sophomores were to Placer. So my heartiest congratulations to the Falcons, Coach Martello and his staff and to the parents and boosters who've supported these young men all these years.
A special recognition should also be mentioned for the hundreds of hours given in support of this team by the volunteers in the Junior Falcons program: board members, coaches and parents without whose support could not have led to the successes this team has achieved. Wishing you the very best on the 15th against San Diego!
