Welcome to Chu Chu Rah Rah!!!!

On behalf of the collective brethren who truly love and support Holy Cross Football, I want to welcome you to Chu Chu Rah Rah (, an independent website for the Crusader Football Family!!

Knowing that there are truly thousands of Holy Cross alums, former players, current players, Gridiron Club members, parents, friends, and assorted others who are sincerely passionate about the Holy Cross Football program, this site is dedicated to creating a true sense of community and an impassioned voice in support of the program. In the process, I certainly envision that existing relationships amongst our troops will grow stronger, past relationships will reconnect, and new relationships will clearly flourish. No doubt, many who know little to nothing about the College of the Holy Cross and the Crusader Football program will learn how special this school and this program truly are. How great is that? Simply outstanding!

The site will look to spread the word about fabulous existing initiatives recently initiated by the Holy Cross Gridiron Leadership Council (the "90-Wide" Mentoring program, the Jackie Mo' Lifetime Achievement Award, and more). We will also highlight the newly launched annual Building the Brand/Ring of Fame program. We will broadcast a wide array of topics, including receptions, meetings, interviews, and more.  Beyond these efforts, the possibilities and impact are truly endless.

Chu Chu Rah Rah is hardly a finished product with this launch. We welcome ideas as to how we can make the site more impactful, energized, and FUN! As with any site and community, this effort will only take off with the support and the voice of those who care about Holy Cross Football. What can you do to help the cause?

1. Put the site in your favorites.
2. Visit and comment often.
3. Be a guest contributor/commentator. We welcome writers.
4. SPREAD the WORD about the site amongst your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, or anybody who may care to join the Crusader Football Family.
5. Let us know what you think we might add to the site.

Knowing that many from outside our Crusader Football Family will be attracted to the site, we will maintain a professional, respectful, and first class community. We welcome all comments, including the critically constructive, but the site will not be a forum for classless, disrespectful diatribe.

Given that the 2010 rendition of the Holy Cross Crusaders will be convening for summer camp within the next week to ten days, I know I speak for all those currently behind Chu Chu Rah Rah in sending the message to the team and coaches that we are behind you every step of the way, and look forward to helping Holy Cross Football win on and off the field.

Let's Win!! Chu Chu Rah Rah!!
