2020 REVIEW

Last season was an up-and-down season for Chanute. It kind of was for a lot of teams. The Blue Comets finished with a 3-4 record in just seven games. They had two games canceled due to COVID-19: week 3 against Ulysses and week 4 against Jefferson West. They finished the regular season with a 14-6 win over Labette County to go 2-2 against SEK teams, before falling to Bishop Miege in the 1st round of the 4A East playoffs. Chanute graduated some talented guys, including Garrett Almond (Coffeyville CC), Ryker Donovan (Bethany College) and Tyson Lucas (Independence CC) – who are playing at the next level.

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

Look at that list of returning starters. I don’t think I’ve ever had a coach list that many returning starters. Ever. “We’ll have a veteran group of players who have experience, and a large senior class,” says head coach Clete Frazell, who is entering his third season as the Comets’ head coach, “This is a very solid group across the board with quality offensive and defensive line players, as well as quality skill players.” Chanute has some good athletes on the roster. Some really good. Those guys will stand out immediately. The combination of experience, good players and a third season under coach Frazell is a good recipe for Chanute to win games.
