    It is an opportunity for an emerging coach to go, win some games and move on or a veteran to come in and finish out trying to turn it around. SD has a good track team and had won states in some events like the 4x400 in recent years so those kids can run decent. Got to get them out for football, get bigger, stronger and faster.

    Chris, You nailed it on the head with your points. People have said about SD, "If it ends with an in', then it is getting in the way of sports and academics" down there. Fishin', huntin', swimmin', four wheelin', workin' and others I won't mention. The town is small and has no diversity, which makes them struggle against more athletic teams in open field situations. I agree they need to run a power based offense and mix in a little passing and tickery at times to keep the opponent honest. Set in a good base defense that covers all the gaps and allows pressure with the blitz to interupt flow and prevent teams from getting the ball into open spaces where SD players mostly lose that battle. When Crowell passed, they had an opportunity to keep things going with a couple of staff members but went outside twice for coaches and both ended up leaving. Only disagreement, is a veteran coach could very well be the right choice as well. Hard to beat experience when it comes to building a program, working the fan base and building relationships. Wrestling is not as strong, but is still a good sport for them.

    MS plays all the Davidson County schools in football with limited success. Things are a mess right now and it will be a tough spot, but an opportunity to go down to Denton and work hard to turn things around. Really nice facilities, moderate parental support and a strong boosters club that can get behind the coach and the kids. School has a bunch of empty classrooms and limited opportunity to hire based on that. No principal as of today, and no HC makes it tough to get any work done this summer. New HC will have to build a new coaching staff and basically start from stratch August 1 due to the late hire and mandatory summer shutdown weeks in July. I think the Wildcats can learn to battle and win, just will take time to do so.

    Week two is a huge game I will attend.

    Top 1A teams

    Not sure, just know they will be well coached and prepared and hopefully continue to get better. Probably not a top 10!

    Mike Vogt is the one I was referring to. Lee only had one winning season.

    For a long time it was NM, C Central and S Davidson battling for the bottom three spots in the YVC. Then NM hired the young guy from florida and he did a great job of getting some athletes out and they got much more competitive. When he left they went down again. Good opportunity for someone that wants to prove themselves as a HC and get a bigger job. Has Admin gotten better and more supportive of the football program?

    South Stanley should be better this year.

    TW Andrews head coaching opening

    Don't know much about the existing AD, however, I do know they interviewed a potential AD that attended TWA and was a state championship coach there and other schools. He is very respected, connected and could have helped TWA get some new teacher/coaches in there to grow those programs that have faltered. The facilities have went down also and need someone to get them back in good shape. Too much talent in the hallways not to be competitive in football, wrestling, basketball and track every year.

    Central Academy New Football Coach

    Good luck to him. They have a real good wrestling program, can he get some of those guys out for football?

    Central Carolina Conference 2019

    ND and LHS will continue to do well as long as they are in 2A with 1000-1200 kids in the hallways and will be the teams to beat once again. Both have excellent weight programs, player depth, solid JV teams and very experienced coaching staffs. OG is getting better, but may be a few years away from competing in the top four. THS and Salisbury will have the athletes to compete and win. Weight room gain is the difference in winning a few more games for both. Everyone else should be about the same with no big surprises. Lexington is a question, as they are heading into spring with noone named as HC. Certainly will have the talent, but lots of questions at this point.

    Good Coaches and the Carousel

    1. Great coaches set high expectations and model expected behavior. 2. Great coaches build relationships with athletes and parents. 3. Great coaches handle internal team business (discipline, issues, rules, etc) with consistency. 4. Great coaches run their program on their terms. 5. Great coaches do the right things and promote positive behavior from their coaches and players. 6. Great coaches do not chase the past, but forge a new future for themselves! 7. Great coaches teach in the classroom ans support academic success. 8. Great coaches mentor, inspire, coach up and allow their staff members to coach. I could go on and on. Bottomline is, great coaches obtain success because they have the vision to look ahead, forget what happened in the past and stay on track towards goals.

    Avery coach resigns

    Awesome scenery up there, nice facilities and good sized student body to pull from. How would the locals take to someone being hired from the beach or piedmont area with no ties to the community?
  14. Bigtime87


    There is a rule in place, but the local LEA can have their own rule and that is the issue. it needs to be all or none. You transfer for sports or during a season you sit out (unless it is a legitimate move). Anybody can fudge paperwork so this will never be solved and will remain an issue. As for privates, if a public school is stupid enough to schedule them so be it. Playing a private is basically giving them a look at your best kids and opening the door for them to be recruited or move. I know of 2-3 wrestlers that were Seniors, transferred to a private school to wrestle, got reclassified and wrestled two more seasons just to win a private school title.

    Thomasville Coach Resigns

    Parents and community have to buy in and support whomever takes over. They have to get over the past and realize Thomasville is not a 1A power house anymore (now a very small 2A). They have to get bigger, stronger and faster because the schools around them have caught up in many aspects and are well coached with veteran staffs and tremendous community support. Discipline starts at home and when parents allow their kids to skip practice, miss scheduled team events, walk onto campus late everyday or act as they please then what is a coach, teacher or administator to do with that. Best wishes to the Bulldogs and the new coach/staff.
