Football season is here, and from the tail end of August to the middle of November, the gridiron calls for attention – especially the high school variation of the game.

At South Central Calhoun, there are expectations and there are dreams. To SCC head football coach Bryan Case, his team and the supporters of purple, white and black, those expectations and dreams often align.

It’s the tradition that binds everything and everyone all together.

Within Titans’ heart of hearts, the components are there for a special season. Ranked No. 6 by The Gazette in Cedar Rapids, the Titans are not only aiming for a return to the postseason, but also a potential trip to the UNI-Dome.

That quest toward a trip to Cedar Falls begins this week, when SCC heads westward to face East Sac County in a season opening clash at 7 p.m. at the ESC Football Field in Wall Lake.

“I think we have another great opportunity to be successful this season,” Case said. “We had one of the best off-seasons we’ve seen in a long time, as our senior leadership have been outstanding and the team seems to be ‘buying in’ to the program.”

“We have great kids and they are hungry for continued success,” Case added. “If we push to improve on a daily basis, then I think we could have a special year.”

The Titans (0-0) appear loaded on paper, with 20 returning letterwinners and 14 seniors on the roster.
