CHAMPS, COACH LUKE AND ALL THE COACHING STAFF.
you realize that even after you graduate and the years go by, you
will always be a part of a very unique family… the family of those
who once attended Cambridge Central School. We are a proud group;
proud of Cambridge, proud of our school and now you have made us
even prouder. Congratulations!!!
This was the most exciting Friday afternoon I've had in a long time--Please pass on my congratulations to Doug and his Cambridge Indians team. That was a fantastic game. I was really proud of my hometown team, and I have always been very proud of Doug. He is a great coach.

Congratulations to the Cambridge Football Team and their coaches, parents and cheerleaders too. Congratulations to their loyal fans as well. Great Job!
Cloud 9 is an awesome place to be. You've worked hard and deserve to hang out on that cloud for a while.

Was able to follow the game right though the double OTs via a Maple Grove twitter account. That's what happens when you live in Good Old Garland Texas - you take your CCS sports updates any way you can. Will give the "twittering guy" credit, he gave credit when credit was due to both teams.
Playing in The Dome has to be quite a change from my days standing behind the snow fence to watch the Indians play.
Congratulations to the team and Coach Luke on the hard won honor.
When and how do we out-of-towners get to get an Indians' Championship T-shirt?

Watched the game from a TV view this time (went in 99). A nail

very exciting. Nice to see on social media, the parades for going
and coming home-and the fact that community extends beyond the

It was a FANTASTIC game with a storybook ending. Great effort on the part of the whole team! I would like to make mention of all the Pee Wee, Modified, JV and other Cambridge football coaches who have built the foundation for this championship team. They deserve kudos as well!
Coach Doug, and everyone involved with CCS football:
Congratulations to all of you, and to the entire town of Cambridge for their support in your endeavor. Although it has been many years since I played sports on the fields of Cambridge, having moved to Arlington in my 8th grade year, I still remember those days with joy and reverence for the spirit of the Indians. Coach Luke, we participated together, and those are joyful memories. It is amazing and wonderful that you are still creating joyful memories for YOUR athletes, and for the people of Cambridge, with your dedication to leading, teaching, and coaching our young people. Blessings to you, and your entire team. Here's to the coming seasons, may they be filled with joyous memories, camaraderie, and victories too numerous to count.
all of you for the hard work and supreme effort.
Thanks for putting Cambridge on the map...great win.

Congratulations CCS Indians on a job well done. After watching the younger boys, Cambridge Tigers win the super bowl (my grandson Kadyn MacNeil threw the winning pass for the overtime touchdown) and then Varsity winning the State Championship after 2 overtimes it has been quite a season for Cambridge and so proud of each of those who worked hard to make this happen. Keep up the good work, you have made us proud.
Bob Wright, Class of 1956, Cambridge NY
Congratulations to the 2016 Football Team for continuing Cambridge's football tradition dating all the way back to the 1924 and 1925 when Cambridge was Northeastern New York Champions downing Mechanicville, Greenwich, Hudson Falls, Troy, Granville, Glens Falls, Whitehall and Albany. The community supported teams of old (600 paid attendees for the 1924 Hudson Falls game). The boys of 2016 did Cambridge proud showing the rest of the region what talented and fine young men live here. They certainly deserve our continued support.
Sandy Pratt Zerrillo, Class of 1979, Slingerlands NY

Congratulations to the CCS football team! What an amazing victory! Class D State Champs!!! I listened to the game on Max Preps. Not much detail, just a brief update every few minutes. I thought I’d have a heart attack. We were whooping a hollering here in Murphy NC after the final two point conversion. Way to go Indians. You make us proud! My Uncle Jack Coulter was a star running back on the famous 1924/25 champion football team coached by Bob Wright’s Father. Jack is smiling up there somewhere

Ed Cantwell, Class of 1958, Wheeling IL
Let me add my congratulations to Coach Luke, the assistant coaches and staff and all the members of the 2016 CCS Indian football team -- NYS CLASS D CHAMPS!!! I follow the Indians thru Pete Tobey's columns in the Post Star and on the MaxPreps.com website to get the scores and updates. Couldn't wait to tell all my friends here in Chicagoland about the victory.....going for the two point conversion and victory instead of the tie.....gutsy call Coach!! That fits with the Indian spirit and makes me very proud to be an Indian Alum. Best of luck in the future for additional Championships!
Donna Reed Plog, Class of 1977, Greenwich NY
Congratulations to the whole team including Coach Doug Luke and Assistant Coaches!! It was quite a season to go into the State Championship game with a 12-0 record. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this game at home, better than watching my favorite Pro team. I am glad to hear Lucas is doing well, it showed great sportsmanship for Maple Grove's head coach to wish him well while he was taken off the field on a gurney. Enjoy this victory, very proud of your accomplishment!!
Tom Raymond, Class of 1964, Fernandina Beach FL
Channeling, echoing from the great beyond, from the very first undefeated CCS championship team of nine decades past, of 1925, that of Johnny Galloway, Nick Canzeri, Martin Church, Charles Raymond, et al - who also outscored their opponents like this year's version a bazillion to peanuts (except that last game!) ... SUPER CONGRATS for the Super Bowl win in Syracuse! Good going, Coach Doug Luke, Asst. Dan Severson, et al. (The Burlingame boys, Bob and Mark, would be so proud!)
Congratulations! Zack, Brad and whole Indian team.....I thought this was a rebuilding year?
Ted Presler, Class of 1956, Silver City NM
All across the nation and a few outside are congratulating the 2016 Cambridge HS Football team for their tremendous victory in a nail chewing and biting win over a very tough team. Back in '54, 55, 56 we didn't come close to this accomplishment which makes this victory in 2016 even sweeter than most. Congratulations to the coaches and the players and the town of Cambridge for a wonderful job on the field!
RoseMarie Leone Winiewicz, Class of ’72, Bethesda MD
Congratulations, Doug- to you and your team. What a thrill! I remember watching, many years ago, a grainy black and white image of Cambridge playing a (sectional??) game against the team of future NFL player Mike Hart. That game was exciting, so this one even more so! An accomplishment like this only comes from hard work, long hours, dedication, and a little bit of luck (i.e. injury-wise). Enjoy the moment and keep up the good work. In these trying times, sports teams help us all find some common ground.
Diana Bayer Mertrude, Class of 1961, San Diego CA
My sister Carol Bayer (Class of ’63) has been keeping me informed about those CCS Indians!! Many kudos to the team and to the female field goal kicker (imagine that)!!!! What a thrill for them. Maybe the San Diego Chargers could take some lessons in perseverance and teamwork from the CCS Indians!! Even here in San Diego, the word has spread about this tremendous win!!! Hooray!!!!
Thure Johnson, Class of 1964, Lakeside CA
Good going guys, nice to see the team on top and keeping my home town on the map

Congratulations to the CCS Indians Football Team and Coaching Staff on your outstanding accomplishment. You have made us all proud.
Congrats to the Cambridge Indians!!! Great job by the team and coaches! GO INDIANS!!!
Special congratulations to the Cambridge football team for winning the 2016 NYS Class D championship. It has been a "lot" of hard work and perseverance for those young men. I have followed the Cambridge Football games since 1985 and have missed very few games. Witnessed the execution of "The Play" many years ago, so exciting. Watched the 1999 team bring home the State Title. Certainly appreciate the coaches for all the time they put into the program and the "standard" of conduct that is expected. We can be proud of the Cambridge football program.
Ken Aiken, Class of 1968, Hazlet NJ
Congratulations to the 2016 NYS football champions. What a great season which I followed thru my local family members including Kyle #24. An accomplishment that the players, coaches and town can be proud of and will always remember.
Sharon Lee Saari Delgrosso, Class of 1970, Las Vegas NV
CONGRATULATIONS to the Cambridge Central Football Team!!!!! Well done.
Don Vitello, Class of 1960, North Syracuse NY
Congratulations to Coach Doug Luke, the assistant coaches, and every player on the team, for an outstanding achievement.
The football skills displayed by the coaches and players, of both teams, in this outstanding Class D NYS Championship game were of very high quality, higher than some Class AA teams. And, those schools have 500 to 800 students, in each class, to fill their rosters.
Being at the game, was an experience of excitement and tension during each play, as it could be the deciding play of this extremely competitive, high level contest. Then, Coach Doug made the great, gutsy, and correct call, win or lose. It seemed like slow motion - the pass, the catch, then, even prior to the scoring signal of the referee, the eruption, the elation, the deafening roar of the Cambridge crowd (probably twice the size of that of our opponent) that, were it not for the Dome cover, would have been heard in Cambridge (as we were facing east), and the beauty of the players celebrating in the end zone.
A wonderful, amazing scene. I had tears in my eyes for Cambridge, the community that has meant so much to my life and that I love so dearly, as do many others. Could it be that Cambridge was the origin of "it takes a village to raise a child"?
To Lucas: As you probably know by now, the entire community and Cambridge alumni throughout the nation, is rooting for your quick and complete recovery.
One last thought. Let's meet again at the Carrier Dome, on Friday, November 24, 2017. Sorry for the pressure Doug.
Congratulations to the Cambridge football team!! So proud of them all!! Way to go!!
Tasha Brown, Class of 1996, Grafton NH
Congratulations to the Cambridge Indians football team for making it all the way to the super bowl and winning!! I can't remember if our team went all the way when I was in school back in 1996? Congrats again.

Congratulations to the coach, team and the entire supportive student body and community. Wins like this mean a lot to a small town like Cambridge and this victory will be remembered for decades. I’m from back in the era of 6 man football; sometime in my high school years (1952-56), I think I remember when the change was made to 11 man (or is my memory failing me!).

Congrats to Coach Luke, his Staff and of course the Team and School. Seems like Cambridge has winning teams every year and this has to have something to do with Coach Luke's Football Program at CCS.

Congratulations Cambridge Indians Football team and all coaches!!
Although unable to attend games, because of health conditions, my
husband kept me posted. He doesn't miss a game and loves it when he
gets the chance to be your bus driver to the games. You’re all one
of his kids! Especially you Christian Hunt, he's kept track of you
since kindergarten on his bus route.

Congratulations to Coach Luke, the coaching staff, players, parents, cheerleaders, and the town of Cambridge.
It has been an amazing journey to watch the success of the team week after week. Thank you to all the people who follow the team and gave information to those of us who don't live in Cambridge anymore. It was great to see the videos, newspaper articles, and all the Facebook posts from friends about the team and its accomplishments. Watching the parades gave me a sense of pride to be from Cambridge, New York... It's wonderful to see how the small-town spirit is alive in Cambridge.
Robert D. Reed, Class of 84 Leonardtown MD
Congratulations on winning the state championship. Gutsy call by
Coach Luke on the final play in OT that was executed perfectly by
the offense. I have fond memories of my time as a football player
at Cambridge. Some of the things that I learned on the practice
field and during games helped me during my military career. To the
players I say well done! Cherish your victory and for those who are
returning next year, work even harder to defend your title.
Crowe, Faculty '61-'91 Cambridge, NY
game was a nail bitter right to the end. What a way to win and what
a season! Cheers to all!
It was gratifying to be in town before the game and see the messages of support for all the team members and coaches. Congratulations to all.

The words Football and Cambridge have been used in the same sentence for a hand full of years now.
Good leaders (Coaches and Parents) are needed in today's youth. These winning years can and will impact these players for the rest of their lives. Congrats to all Coaches, teachers, parents, and of course players for a wonderful season

Congratulations to the whole Cambridge Village that "raised" this 2016 football team to fame. I remember being in the dome for the 1999 victorious team.... A runaway.... This 2016 game thank goodness I watched at home. I text Karen Dusha McKean, it seemed nearly every play the last quarter and each overtime. Once cheerleaders always cheerleaders!! I have such pride in our little town but the part that always gets me and puts tears in my eyes is at the end of every game, loss or win, The team faces it's beloved spectators and salutes us! Well 2016 football staff and team, WE SALUTE YOU
Congratulations for a glorious season to put in our memory banks! I hope Lucas is recovering well. Prayers are with him and his family

I graduated with Doug. Sending Congratulations on a wonderful season!!
Way to go
Coach Luke, I would first like to say congratulations on winning the state championship, it was a long time coming and well deserved. Additionally, I am also proud to have shared a season with this year's seniors. Watching them develop and grow as a team has been amazing and I am proud to see them reap the spoils of their hard work. I am also thankful that under your coaching my little brother has accomplished so much. I proud also as an alumnus of Cambridge Football and as a member of the Cambridge Community.
Secondly, I look forward to watching my brother and his classmates grow as adults after having experienced something as great as this. Having been a Cambridge Football player has helped me through the hard times in my personal life in many ways. The first being that with enough hard work, perseverance, and heart, almost anything is possible. The second being that no matter how hard you get knocked down, you always get back up. Lastly, those long, hot preseason practices taught to me to just keep moving on, no matter what just keep going. I hope that these now state champions take the Cambridge Football mentality and apply it in their own lives and realize that the sky truly is the limit. Thank you,
Joe Conway, Class 1960, Springfield MA

going through social media. We are a proud CCS Community (near and
