Clinton Massie Celebrates their state title

WILMINGTON, OH (FOX19) -

It has been a celebration month in the making for Clinton Massie fans.  

Fans braved the cold temperatures to celebrate the 2012 State Football Championship after the Falcons beat St. Clarisville 46-36 last month.

"Coming back and seeing all the support we had through everything, it was eye opening."

It has been a month since the Falcons won the Division IV state championship. The players and coaches have now had time to think back and reflect on what the win has meant to the community.

"This has been a community that has been with some of the job loss that we've had over the last three or four years. You know I think it gives you a lot of hope for the future and just a lot of enjoyment. The people coming and rallying around the team. It's been a special year."

These young men are making their mark in the Clarksville community, particularly in the eyes of the children that will follow in their footsteps in years to come. 

"That's the part I don't think I will really understand until we get older. Now they know it's possible and they have something to strive for now."

"It's a tremendous honor you know. When you represent your community and your school and you see all this kind of support coming out on a cold day."

Seventeen seniors graduate from the 2012 state championship team. The underclassmen are ready to step up and prove they can bring home a second straight state title.
