    Richmond County

    Richmond should be ranked 13 or 14....we'll take any ammo we can get for motivation....honestly, 3 maybe 4. Hard for me to justify being ahead of MC and Vance. MC played a brutal non-con schedule and the only blemish was a tie vs a defending state champ at their place. Vance is Vance which is really good.
  2. Yes they do should have rechecked instead of using my memory. Substitute KM for Vance. Thanks for the correction.
  3. or Shelby, or Tarboro, or Vance..........
  4. Wow is right. My first knee jerk reaction to seeing this roster was shock and amazement and i was going to provide an emotional response. However, after taking a breath and counting to 10 i refrained from doing so. I wish to congratulate the young men selected for their years of hard work and being noticed for their play and work, well done men make us proud and have a great time in a tremendously enriching opportunity. The memories you make will remain with you the rest of your life.

    Who was the best 4A team ever in N.C.

    Already been mentioned, but 2003 Richmond team was very, very good. I believe they were the only team to really challenge Indy that year. Missed FG away from putting them on a different list. Todd Ellis Page team was good. Brad Edwards Byrd team very good. 87 Garner team with Anthony Barbour was special. Only high school team i have seen better than 03, 04 Indy was '18 DF but they are not in NC.

    Who was the best 4A team ever in N.C.

    All those mentioned above were great. Marcus was special and could and did impact the game in many ways. Dannell I thought was a little above average high school player who obviously had a tremendous upside. Melvin could dominate a game at any time at any position but only did so occassionaly (maturity thing for him). Nate Robinson best overall player I ever saw at Richmond. Shut down corner (ask Massaqoui), returner, reciever.... whatever team needed he could provide. Single handedly beat a very good Mt. Tabor team in playoffs. Tedarrius Wiley was unbelievable as QB but battled a lot of injuries his senior year. He was 20-25 for 4 td's and 325 yds. in the state championship as a junior (not bad for a QB on a team that "runs it up the middle all the time"). Flip Ellerebe was Barry Sanders of high school football he was a joy to watch run the ball with insane balance and vision.
  7. Simple, straight forward answer is Yes they do. The closest county with the population comparable is Wake. Add all the other counties together and you have a number comparable to Mecklenburg. Besides the numbers, Meck has more of a football culture than some of the others.

    You're right I have no idea what i am talking about. I forgot you guys know everything. Silly me please forgive my ignorance I now realize my 20+ years of coaching in high school football fails to compare to wealth of knowledge and omnipotence a few of you have in regards to the sport. Since i am in the presence of people who know everything, how do you guys think Brands new job will effect his relationship with his mentor? Seeing how their school zones border each other. Also do you know if any of Brands assistants will make the move with him? Why am i asking if you know, of course you do, so could you tell me how their relationship will change and what assistants will be moving. Thanks

    The point I was trying to make using Wando as an example is that it is hard to judge a coaches ability based on enrollment numbers. Hall of Fame Coach Bod Paroli once asked Coach Emory, "How do you stand having all those kids behind you on the sideline?". Coach Paroli only had 35 players on his teams working at 4a schools Douglas Byrd and 71st. Coach Paroli is regarded as one of the best to have ever coached in NC but based on his numbers of participation he could be viewed as a failure using numbers as a standard. Look I don't know Coach White from Adam's house cat and know that i would not have said what he did to a reporter but I am saying don't be quick to judge or generalize based off of numbers. Coach Brand (and a lot of new coaches) may find themselves in a situation that calls for some addition by subtraction to get the program heading in the right direction. Anybody who has followed NC football knows that Brand can coach so if his numbers are down from what he had at Vance surely we wouldn't view him as a bad coach or bad hire.

    Wando high school outside of Charleston has 4,000 students and 110 players on their roster and they are 20-26 over the last four years. Numbers are just that, numbers. You got to have some actual players to be contenders doesn't matter who the coach is. Numbers are also a little misleading because of location and what is available outside of sports for young people. A place like Shelby or Tarborro might dress more than a place located near the beach or a metropolitan area because 1)tradition 2) what else are young guys going to do after school. Should a 3000 student school have 30 players? NO. Does it fall on the shoulders of the head coach? not all of it but yes a large part does. How many kids are specializing in other sports? How many kids parents are afraid of the CTE scare? How strict is school policy about behavior issues and participation? How well is athletics in general supported and promoted? There are a number of influences that determine how many kids come out and stick it out that are outside the influence of a head football coach.

    Guess the flip side of the coin is us "old guys" feel sorry for you young guys always chasing the almighty buck, uprooting your family for the "next big and better" thing. Moving farther and farther from your families, kids constantly having to make new friends, never really having any true and dear friends or coworkers you enjoy being around. Constantly wondering what is next and when are we going to move again because there is always more money to be made else where. Having the occasional thought of man if i would have just stayed where i was or wow this new place sucks i got to get out of here asap. The truth is everybody has their own reasons and motives, it is not an "old guy" or "young guy" thing. Some young people get in the military with plan of retiring from military service some find out that it really isn't their cup of tea and get out while others love it and stay their 20. You guys are right about one thing everybody has to adapt. Some jobs are taken purely as stepping stones to get where they want to be ultimately but again it has nothing to do with "old" or "young". Donnie Kiefer is an "old" guy" but he has no problem with moving around and most of the jobs he has taken were not monetarily or facility based decisions. He enjoys the challenge of building programs, so everybody has their own unique reasons. Lay off us "old" guys, please.

    Heard the AD job has already been filled and Irmo is moving away from Head Football/AD position. Still an upgrade in facilities, pay and not to bad of a talent pool to draw from.

    Amazing how many get hired.... SC has young successful coaches too but they get looked over by NC guys. And with good reason most of the state champs this year were won in SC by coaches who have NC roots. Tells you something about the quality of coaching NC kids are or were getting.
