    Teams that use to be good

    In our parts (Southeastern NC)West Brunswick- While we are certainly having a resurgent year, we had a run from 88-98 where we won 8 conference championships and two state titles and played for it another time. Whiteville- While they have remained very good, the run they had in the 80's is not going to be duplicated. Dominant from 81-89 St. Pauls- My dad was HFC there from 88-94....won 65 games in 6 years. Not sure they've gone past the second round since then. Most of Fayetteville- Byrd, 71st, South View all have remained competitive. I realize Byrd struggles now. But Grays Creek and Jack Britt being built hurt those programs immensely. Fayetteville football was unbelievable in the 80's and 90's. Clinton- Still good. But they were on a great run with Bob Lewis in the 90's. James Kenan- Kenan has always been a program thatll have five great years, then dip, then come back. They'll be good again. Just the ones that come to my mind.

    1A Top-20 Power Rankings following Week 8

    Wouldnt sleep on Holmes this year. Paul Hoggard and Wes Mattera are great coaches.
  4. I recruited as an FCS and D2 coach for nine years. I can unequivocally say that the north south game in South Carolina was of much better quality and it gave recruiters the chance to eval the second tier of players in S.C. (non shrine bowl). There would be 50 players on each team from power 5 to d3. Many uncommitted and unsigned. We should move the game to December. Crowds are overrated. The product is better and it’s better for the kids from a recruiting standpoint. Heck, I think we should move the game down here. All three brunswick county high schools have turf and hotels that are begging for business in December. College recruiters would flock. Just my two cents.

  7. 13-17 with coach McCray. Lived in Boiling Springs but went to church at fbc Shelby. Webb is a tough job..... Shelby High is a machine. As was Crest at the time I was there.

    Way Too Early Discussion of 2021 Realignment

    I clarify by saying this.....Split Conferences in the current model is wrong. Split conferences in a more modernized class system (more classifications) is ok as long as you keep it to one class up/one class down. I still believe the lowest and highest classifications should never play in split leagues. 1A's cant compete with 2A's across the board by and large. I'm not talking about Tarboro or WRH or Murphy.....I'm talking about the typical 1A programs. And the largest schools should be in leagues with similar resource rich programs. So in a 6 class system (1A and 6A only leagues) Split leagues that follow one up or one down protocols is ok with me with the other classes.

    Way Too Early Discussion of 2021 Realignment

    Yes, but more split conferences that follow the one class up/down policy in an eight or six classification model isnt that bad. For instance a 4A/5A league in a six classification deal isnt bad. Youre looking at about a 600 student differences. I could deal with being in a league that was 3AA/4A or 2AA/3A (in the current format). Its when you get schools in the 3A to 4AA range (1000 to 2500) where its ridiculous.

    Way Too Early Discussion of 2021 Realignment

    The question always becomes what do you do with the enrollment issues that naturally exist in the lowest and highest classifications (1A and 4A) (1A and 6A) (1A and 8A)....whatever class we are talking about. I just have a major problem with split leagues in the current format. The difference between little 3A and big 4A is enormous in sheer numbers and resources. Im all for 6 classes and still subdividing the bottom and top classifications. But split leagues have got to stop in football. Some of you naturally dont care, but playing in a league that ranges from 1000 to 2400 just isnt fun.

    I do think that number gets skewed a little bit with the 20/30/30/20 rule. With 2A's and 3'a, you are essentially competing with 60 other schools. In 1A and 4A, you are competing with about 40. I believe we should have a class system where it is pretty equitable across the board in terms of playoff percentages and the state champions. Only way to do this is classification alterations. 6 Classes with subdividing the highest and lowest class would work as well. The thought of them decreasing their cash cow just isnt going to happen.

    you are correct. I apologize. I believe I was combining the football average with the non-football average. For instance, one state champion in classes with 120 students.
