CCHS football pair sign with Bluefield

For Xavier Trimble and Cameron Wright, the recruiting process was a quick one.

Both CCHS seniors took a trip to visit Bluefield College in Virginia and wound up signing to play football at the school only a week later.

The two signed in front of a crowd of spectators in the CCHS library during a ceremony of May 7.

According to Wright, he understands there will be a transition that lies ahead going from high school to the college level.

“It will be good to have someone familiar along for the ride,” Wright said.

Both will continue to play the positions they are most comfortable with.

Trimble will line up along the defensive front, while Wright will be a member of the backfield.

One of the things that they are most looking forward to is the opportunity to come in and compete for playing time right away.

“It’s a great feeling to know that you can make a difference right away if you put in the work,” Wright said.

Both players were key contributors in CCHS football’s playoff run this past season.

“We hope that we laid the foundation for the future of the program,” Trimble said.
