Cashion Native Heads to DII Nat'l Championship (Dec 12, 2012)
Valdosta State quarterback Cayden Cochran and his family have had to be
incredibly resilient heading into the Division II national championship game.
The Cochrans have lost two homes in the past 18 months.
Valdosta State's game Saturday against Winston-Salem State in Florence, Ala.,
will come just six days after Cochran's family home in Cashion, Okla., was
destroyed by a fire.  The loss is especially painful since the family's previous
home was leveled by a tornado in May 2011.
The family is looking forward to taking a break from the recovery effort.
Cochran says the crisis is especially difficult when his mind is not on
football.
Cochran's father, Chris, left Oklahoma Wednesday for the long drive to Alabama.
He says he's grateful the game can ``keep everything else off our mind.''
