A-C Football Program Rewarded $1,500 Grant! On Thursday May 14, 2015 the California Casualty Management Company honored the Amanda-Clearcreek football program with a $1500.00 grant for the purchase of new safety equipment for the program. Last fall, Amanda-Clearcreek athletic director Steve Evans, filled out a questionarie and requested Amanda-Clearcreek be consider for the grant.

This opportunity will allow the program to purchase some much needed new helmets to help ensure our student-athletes are in the safest equipment possible. The athletic department and the Amanda-Clearcreek Football Program would like to say thank you to the California Casualty Management Company.
