Blue Dragons into NJCAA top 10

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.
