When Tracy arrived for another day of manual labor, all 18 Lady Cougars and the entire coaching staff met her in the driveway with grins, gloves, and gumption. Among the crew was Assistant Coach Jason Allen—a longtime friend of Clear Creek Community Church’s Clear Lake campus worship pastor, Brad Loser. Coach Allen saw a Facebook post about CCCC Harvey Relief and rallied the troops to step in and assist when their away games were canceled this weekend.
“Volleyball is great, the University of Houston is great, but our city is what we’re here for,” Coach Allen says. So the Lady Cougars joined nearly 300 other laborers at CCCC’s Egret Bay campus to receive their house assignments and begin the gritty work of demolition on Saturday. They joined a CCCC team led by Travis Hicks and headed to meet Ms. Mitchell, once a University of Houston student herself.
