The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.

The military is known for producing leaders of strong character and ethics. Throughout his military career, Julian Burns proved himself to be one of those successful leaders. You don't earn the rank of major general if you're not among the best the military has to offer … and then you don't go on to be successful at an international corporation unless you have the agility and skills to deliver every single day in the tough business world of today.
