    East Surry 35, Mitchell 28 (1AA West Final)

    This was the best regional final played in the state tonight. An absolute shame that such a great ballgame ends with controversy.
  2. Show that proposal to the Buncombe County crowd and it will be changed faster than you can say “Old Fort Mountain”

    Northwestern 3A/ 4A Predictions

    FYI: McDowell has a 10-game schedule in 2019 for that reason and the kicker is...that would have been a home game had West stayed in the league.

    Hopefully the non-conf schedule and the few tougher league tilts will pay off come November. That to me is the toughest challenge our league has, even the upper tier...are the teams battle tested enough to win playoff games? Watauga has been the only team in the league the past couple seasons to show that they are ready. Freedom is a good example IMO of how scheduling can sometimes be a deterrent to long term success. Yes, they schedule Shelby right off the bat, then they go two months without much of a competitive ballgame and in the blink of an eye they find themselves in a struggle against the likes of a Watauga. Then a few weeks later they come across the likes of a Monroe or Rockingham County in the playoffs and bad matchups occur. I would bet Coach Little had that in mind when they booked Crest once the West Caldwell departure created an opening.
  5. There are some changes to the play clock starting this season... The play clock has been expanded to 40 secs in high school from what I received in an email from our AD. The 40 sec clock begins once the previous play ends instead of the old format in which you had to wait for the ref’s whistle. In the case of a timeout, you revert back to the 25 sec play clock after the timeout is over. I’m sure for clock operators like myself it will take a little time to adjust to the new rules. Wonder how it will affect the action on the field?
  6. Here’s a follow-up story on the Brewer hiring including some info on the staff members coming into the program. https://www.mcdowellnews.com/sports/back-in-the-game-new-titan-head-coach-happy-to/article_8891b31c-8e1f-11e9-849e-af25d676cb00.html
  7. Not sure who it is yet...but I do know it’s not Lunsford.
  8. Hate to burst the bubble but Derrick Minor is not coming to McDowell. The second place guy isn’t going to take an assistants job at the place he lost out at. I am hearing Brewer will have a couple guys coming with him to go along with those on the previous staff.

  10. Apologize for getting this out there after everyone’s bed time...but the McDowell County Board of Education approves former Avery County coach Darrell Brewer as the new head coach at McDowell. https://www.mcdowellnews.com/news/school-board-confirms-new-titan-head-coach/article_7e262c6a-8bf3-11e9-b458-af7c0c12119e.html Expect a more detailed story on this hire later this week.

    A lot of interesting chatter brewing around with the School Board meeting being tonight.

    I hope you’re correct because I want to see the program get to a respectable level...but I’ll say this. Whoever that may be better pack a lot of patience in their suitcase and know how to exercise it. It will not be an easy job that’s done overnight.

    We went outside three years ago...how did that work?

    McDowell had its chance three years ago to get Matt Reel, so unless someone in Marion backs up the Brinks Truck, I don’t see it happening at this juncture. I haven’t heard much locally in recent days. My guess is that some interviews have possibly taken place already and who knows, maybe they have the choice already locked in. With testing about to begin it will have to be after graduation before something is made offfical. The system monthly board meetings generally fall on the second week of the month. So maybe we get some news around that timeframe.

    Any hints on who?
