  1. Guys as the season starts moving down. Are there any young Lineman we need to keep an eye out for ? (i.e. freshman or sophomores) That my shine starting next year. Just wanting to get the lineman in the spot light.

    Lineman get no respect here

    Hey Chris thanks for the comment. You as a coach know as well as me that the big boys make everything happen. Thanks again for topics on lineman I just hope to get more people talking about them cause they deserve mad respect. I hear in the stands all the time if the line would block but I don't hardly hear them say what a block that just freed that long run. So guys show them lineman some love when you can.
  3. I moved here from Texas when I got out of the military and I have watched a lot of high school football since I have been here( high school football is the best football ) and looked at posts and newspaper reading from all over western North Carolina and I thought Texas was bad but boys North Carolina articles don't give lineman any respect around here. Am I the only one that sees this or do you guys notice that too? The skill players would not be any thing if not for the lineman.

    Hey guys again it looks like this kid just moved to win like alot of kids do. Does moving do anything for them to get in collage? (NO). Thats what it is all about for theses young boy and girls fun and maybe get them to collage. I feel parents of this generation ( blame them or not) just think about wining and I was one of them but my son showed me that integrity and fighting though adversity was more valuable to him then winning. I watched him go though blow out after blow out for 4 years of high school and his senior year when we talked to all the collage coaches before he made his choice and the one thing that all of them pointed out was even though his teams were beat night after night his effort and leadership was more important to them then winning. So to the guys that complain about the moving it does nothing for them down the road so I think we should just sit back and watch some football and enjoy the game.

    Heys guys people on here talking about kids moving schools. It has happened for years but just like I found out with my child. I could have moved him to another school because he only won 2 games in 4 years of high school. It killed him from the start, but thanks to our lord and savior he shined all 4 years and in the end he had 10 D1 offers his senior year. He found out that high school football is about growing up. He told me that staying at his school even not winning was a great thing for him. So I understand some people hate to moving from school to school to win. In the end if you are good you will be seen win or not. Thats what its all about guys helping them grow and if they win great but if those boy are putting effort its even better.
  6. Was looking though the games saw this one and wondered what everyone thought. I saw this West team play Hibriten and played well for about a half but then fell apart. Dont know about Foard but close records so just wondering what every one thought ?
  7. Well guys now I believe what I had said a week ago Oak Grove : North Lincoln : Brevard should be top 10 teams. Those 3 teams easily beat Hibriten and Clinton. Just my two cents

    2A: Burns is Top Dog

    I would have thought the same until I saw them play twice. One against Ashe Co. and Ashe was moving at will with them and then I went last week and watched them against a bad bad West Caldwell team and for one half that bad West team stayed with them. the Lenoir team is no where near as good as a North Lincoln , Oak Grove or I would say West Lincoln. Guess we see come Playoff. Go Statesville !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Because I have a big Hibriten friend down here and he talked that I was crazy that Hibriten was going to win State again this year so I had to see for myself. Yeah AC vs Watauga looked like a game to go see but film wise I felt it would be a blowout . Watauga is a good team. .
  11. Well went to West Caldwell to see this Hibriten team again. I stand by my early statement that team is not a top 10 team. Maybe a year or two away. I had to go see for myself maybe I missed something earlier . That West is really bad but for a half they hung in there with that team. After seeing them in person for a whole game I feel better about my earlier look at the rankings. Oh well guys. Go Stateville !!!!!!!!! Next week
  12. Temple had some good teams brother. I think 2008 they had one hell of a running back that year. Feel free to write anytime I will talk some football brother.
  13. Wakeland as soon as I retried from the military.
  14. Thanks for your service too . Thanks for taking your time to rank them how you think. I guess as a former coach myself in Texas we see things different. Look forward to see how your rankings pan out later in the year. Sorry brother if you think I offend your ranking just dont agree with them from what I have saw on the field. Thanks Mark
  15. Hey everyone new to page but saw these ranking and had to ask how someone came up with these? They have missed some teams and have some higher then they should be. I watch high school football a lot since I retired here from the military. I have had the pleasure of watching a lot of teams on this list this year. As for the top ten not bad but maybe for that Hibriten team Oak grove and I would say North Lincoln could easily beat them hands down. As for the rest it looks good just think from film I have saw and from the games I have been to Oak Grove and North Lincoln should be top 8 easily. Just my two cents. Good luck to all the high school football teams. Go Statesville !!!!!!!
