drafted out of Chipola in 2009. The
left-handed pitcher, signed a
six-year, $140 million deal with the
Nationals in the off-season.
Chipola head coach Jeff Johnson is
happy to see one of his former
players competing on the biggest
stage in the game. "I'm proud of
what so many of our former players
have accomplished both on and off
the field since leaving Chipola.
Getting to the playoffs and having a
chance to win the World Series is
the ultimate prize for every player.
We’re very proud to have a former
Chipola Indian wearing a nice, big
World Series ring.”

Brain Bowl Student of
the Month: October
Congratulations to Carlos
Staley, Chipola College, for being
awarded as the FCSAA Brain Bowl
Division Student of the Month for
October! He was nominated by his
advisor, Stan Young.
what Stan told us about Carlos:
"Carlos Staley is a returning player
on the Chipola Brain Bowl Team. He
will be our captain this year after
being a member of the team that
finished 3rd at nationals last year.
He has consistently been one of our
top scorers. He is a specialist in
Mythology, Science, and Music.
Carlos is a well-known leader on
the Chipola campus. He is one of the
main tutors in our ACE Lab. Not only
is he is a leader on campus, but he
also works two jobs (at an ice cream
store and cooks at a local
restaurant on the weekends). He
still manages to attend all of our
practices, often bringing our team
snacks. It is amazing to watch him
manage his time so well while
maintaining high grades."
