Outlook: The glory years of John Martin and the program in the 1980s and 1990s are long gone. Now, the Cowboys struggle to get students out for football. This season, Chimacum has 19 players – with many of the seniors being four-year starters. Morris has a strong arm, and Thornton scored seven TDs in his final four games of 2011 – but is it enough?
