For a small town of Caldwell to send a team and be as successful as they have says a lot about the kids and teachers in the district. Caldwell High Principal had this to say, "Mike Schott and his Formula 1/4x4 team have shown what is possible with the great kids we have at Caldwell and I know I speak for everyone in the community when I say that it is a very good, and proud, day to be a Redskin".
