We received this E-mail comment this weekend from Hal Capps of the Western Alamance Warriors. Coach Capps led his WA Warriors to the State 3-A High School Football Championship this past 2007 season and he had this to say about the passing of Jeff Carlton, outstanding former News and Record sportswriter.

My heart has taken a big hit. I always thought the world of Jeff! As a young coach, some 10 years ago. Jeff came to see me, he asked many insightful questions; not about our team, but about how I was going to run our program. He was at our last championship game this year, and he talked to our Off.cord. Jeff Snuffer about the passing of his brother during that week of cancer. I feel he and coach Snuffer really hit it off. I only found out about Mr.Carlton this week. I decicded to go on line tonight, and tell the world, That I love him, and will always love Jeff Carlton.

    Nicely said by Coach Capps. As I said when this happened, Jeff was a good guy and he will be missed.
