DENVER — The CHSAA “Championship Saturday” games, presented by The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame (CSHOF), continues to be successful with consistently large and enthusiastic attendance.
The Colorado High School Class 5A and 4A State Championship Games held at Broncos Stadium at Mile High on Saturday, Dec. 1, were watched by a crowd of nearly 11,000 high school football fans. This marked the 14th consecutive year for both of the state’s big school title games taking place at the Broncos’ home field.
The Valor Christian HS Eagles defeated the Cherry Creek HS Bruins 24-14 to win the Class 5A title. The Loveland HS Indians defeated the Skyline HS Falcons by a 62-14 margin to claim the Class 4A title.
“Speaking on behalf of the CSHOF Board of Directors, we are thrilled by the continued growth of this event, which has featured great games, tremendous enthusiasm and the opportunity for The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to make significant monetary and in-kind contributions over the past 14 years to 30 youth sports organizations in Colorado,” said CSHOF President & CEO Tom Lawrence.
Over the past fourteen years, about $1,800,000 has been donated by The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) and other charitable youth sports organizations like Special Olympics Colorado, National Sports Center for the Disabled, Sportswomen of Colorado, Colorado Golf Foundation and Gold Crown Foundation.
