This will go down as one of the weakest state championships in North Carolina history. How many more years will Murphy be able to hide in small 1A? Join your big brother Swain and play big boy football.
Seriously? You're at it again? Join their big brothers from Swain? Geez I don't know, looks to me like Murphy did a pretty good number on the Devils this year to the tune of 35-3. If you're a Swain fan, you're really doing a disservice to the school and coaches and community. I've got some really close friends up there in Bryson City and Coach Blankenship is as classy as anyone you would meet. I'm sure he wouldn't be calling Murphy's championship weak or cheapened. I'm sure several folks from Swain have already called or texted Gentry and others from Murphy to congratulate them.
