For the first time since 1996, the Hutchinson Community College football team is in the NJCAA top 10.
That puts four teams from the Jayhawk into the top 10 — including Butler at No. 4 and Fort Scott at No. 9. Yes, Virginia, that is a big deal.
The Blue Dragons, to me, are just … amazing. I was covering the bumbling, stumbling mess that was HCC in 2006, a winless season. That they’ve come this far, this fast is straight berserker.
But it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n roll. And they ain’t there quite yet.
