Wow! The football players are doing an amazing job! Playoffs, not even quite state yet!! Where was the paint for the golfers that went to STATE? The STATE pole vaulting champ? The STATE debate champs? The state cross country qualifier? There are plenty of kids that deserve a painted window downtown! Congrats to not only our football team but to all our kids that have proved theirselves at a higher level, Caney has so many young people to be proud of!

Opps damn forgive me state wrestlers and FFA teams that qualified as well. Girls basketball was amazing last year as well...I'm trying to give props everywhere forgive me if I didn't give credit! Caney is full of talented young people!

Schools have always put more support (or even all support) in the sports (mainly football) than they have ever shown for the activities that actually take intellect. Sad when it's the education system but they support the things that don't really take any education or intellect to be successful at.

Caney has state and national qualifiers in golf, debate, and cross country. You may not be interested in them, but these kids proudly represent Caney and do a tremendous job. We as a community should be proud of ALL the school organizations, and show our support for ALL of them.

It's very confusing to figure why a place of education is so much more proud of kids that can play a game then they are about kids that show how well they are being educated and the intellectural honors of the education institute.

Its called school spirit! I think we had 46 football players, 4 coachs, 8 cheerleaders, and about 20-30 band members involved with painting the town. Wake up! That is about 80 kids roughly. Football is the biggest sport in town, always has been, even if we werent winning...I dont care how many debate , cross country , or golf championships that are won, they will never get followed by this town like football will. Its a numbers game, more parents= more support.

How can you sit there and bash on your own town's sports like that? Really? Makes me sick. Caney is successful in everything and we should support all activities. You my friend and ignorant.

Will obviously there is more peoploe on a football team. Yes you are correct, but I would throw my main support to Debate and Cross Country as you have mentioned as they don't get the respect they should.
To follow up with that, I see Debaters and Cross Country and Golf players that is a ONE PERSON SPORT going to REGIONAL, SUB STATE, STATE and NATIONALS. Now, not taking away from football and the other sports that take several people to due one simple task as winning the game, the kids in the other events do so by themselves. I don't think you or anyone else should be bashing kids in different sports just because they are not in YOUR personal likeing of the sport.. You are a very shallow person.

Just to be clear it wasn't even the football team, cheerleaders, or band that came up with the idea to paint the town. It was some parents and fans of the game, and very few of them at that. A parent decided this would be a great thing to do called some other parents and that was it. It takes parent involvement to paint the town. The businesses were great with having their windows painted but very few painted them themselves. The art dept from the school, fans, and a couple of parents painted the town. When the word got out and everybody started talking about it was when the rest of the people wanted to be a part of it including the boosters. This was note done by the football team, cheerleaders, band, the school, or the coaches. This was all done by few parents and mainly fans. As for the other sports including debate the same thing can happen. It just takes an idea and vision and move forward with it. You do not have to get permission from the school, boosters, or athletic director. Just do it! Caney hosted a football game that has never been hosted in Caney and the Bullpup spirit was alive and well. Our football team is still talking about it. So who's up for painting windows for state debate that is going on in two weeks?
