She never stops working hard, is always positive excels in the classroom as a student. She is a great example for all student-athletes of how to be a leader both on and off the court.
Vance Bennett is a senior who has worked hard and done everything that has been asked of him. This past week in a game against Episcopal, Vance stepped in and played a different position than normal to fill the vacancy of an injured teammate. While doing so, Vance scored 3 touchdowns and rushed for 240 yards! We are proud of how he stepped in to lead!
John Thomas Wood IV, also known as JT Wood, is a varsity wide receiver for the Creekside Knights’ football team. Playing football for CHS since his freshmen year, JT talks about his goals, accomplishments, and life as a student-athlete. “[Being a student-athlete makes] it hard to manage all my work with my athletics… but in the end it’s helping me find ways to manage myself and prepare myself for the future.” JT is committed to Liberty University to play football, which is one of the many reasons he loves the sport. “I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life after high school until I found my love for football. It’s given me the opportunity to become a good person and develop my skills as a leader, person, and player.” JT also says how it’s also given him the opportunity to go to college. JT is proud to be part of the team that has finally produced its first win in over 2 seasons. “Probably last night, Friday August 25, 2017, [was my favorite memory] because it was my first varsity win since playing varsity for three years.” Helping out the team, and the school, meant a lot to JT, and he also describes it as his biggest accomplishment. “We’ve struggled and just to know I helped bring Creekside out of that struggle is my biggest accomplishment.” His personal goal for the season is to pass 1,000 receiving yards, and he plans to get there by “playing my best every game, trusting my coaches’ decisions, and playing good for the team.” His advice for the freshmen on the CHS football team is to “trust the process and the coaches.”
At school, JT’s favorite class is weightlifting because he gets to workout with his teammates, which he refers to as his brothers. His role model is his father, “because he has been there for me since day 1.” JT hopes to be able to live up to his dad, but also would like to create his own legacy in his life. We wish all the best to JT Wood in his last football season and school year at CHS.

Although easy to navigate, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or hardship. We believe you will appreciate the fact that this new eligibility system is much more efficient than the old paper system.
