  1. Past hour
  2. 2017 SWVA Coach of the Year

    Contenders: Turner (Union), Mullins (Ridgeview), Lowe (Narrows), Johnson (Thomas Walker) Honorable Mentions: Carroll (Marion), Stone (John Battle), Crist (Virginia High), Palmer (Patrick Henry), Harris (Tazewell) I really think we need to consider Nick Johnson at Thomas Walker, he's the third head coach they've had in as many years and led them to the playoffs
  3. Today
  4. Galax @ Narrows

    Galax has faced significantly better competition throughout the course of the season. That has to account for something in my mind. It doesn't mean Narrows can't win this game. Galax missed Dougie's on-field leadership Friday night far more from a defensive standpoint than anywhere else. Game two in those situations always seem to go more smoothly than game one. But as UVAO said, Galax hasn't exactly been the model of consistency lately. If they come ready to play, they win going away. If not, they will be playing basketball Monday.

    This is going to be a good one.
  6. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Sounds like the coach came in and squared things up. That's good stuff. I was making conversation with the earlier comment. May have been told to our boys to fire them up more lol. Wasn't meant as a jab or cheap shot to the graham faithful or palmer. I don't know that guy and have no ill feeling towards him. Sounds like hes done an excellent job up there. Kids will be kids just as every town has it's "idiot" fan or two. Cant judge the whole by the actions of a few. Looking forward to a good game Saturday.

    Maybe you'll get two park visits in a row!
  8. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I'll probably head to Appo or Glenvar myself, regardless of outcome. Pulling for Glenvar, so the trip will be shorter, but Appo is looking strong.
  9. 2017 SWVA Coach of the Year

    Must agree with IRISH-FAN 18. Chilhowie has an outstanding group of athletes and people saw this coming when they destroyed Abingdon, Gate City, Marion, George Wythe and everyone else they played under eighth grade head coach Matt Snodgrass. Problem is they couldn't beat anyone of equal talent this year. The Warriors are a big fish in a small pond in Region D as it is as weak as I can remember. Going into the playoffs very few people saw anyone staying within 28 points of them. Not taking anything away from Chilhowie just not any competition in Region D.
  10. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Oh it'll be a dandy. It wouldn't surprise me if either team pulled it out. If Graham does win I plan to head to Glenvar/Appomattox to cheer them on. I REALLY hope I'm staying at the park one more week though. 😂
  11. Head Coach?

    I concur with the schools you listed. I think Clintwood could also be in the conversation.
  12. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Sure. Let's just hope for a well played hard fought game with good sportsmanship this time around. May the best team win. As I said before. If Union wins, I hope they bring the title back to region D where it belongs. I do think it could be one whale of a game.
  13. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Well said and I agree.
  14. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I, along with the rest of Unions fans, coaches, and players are focused on getting to the 2A semifinals. Which includes beating Graham. I'm sure Graham is the same way, But if this is a topic being discussed on a message board, why not jump in?
  15. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    If you think so. I don't feel like it has anything to do with this weekends game, but if that's what you want to focus on, go for it
  16. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Again if you were speaking of 2015 that was then this is now- those kids you are referring to are gone. Let’s give everyone a fair shake hear.
  17. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Graham the last two years called teams out before the game and talked trash after big plays during the game - which I personally didn't mind to see, because as a player you can get under the opponents skin and get their focus off & plus it hypes you up to play that much more. & for fans it makes for a better atmosphere for the game when both crowds are getting into it because the opposing fans act like their boys are doing bible study in the locker room at halftime. That being said, the last two years the G-Men DID have discipline problems. Graham had some great players graduate the last two years but in my opinion they weren't the best leaders. I'm all for trying to intimidate the other team before the game and talking trash during the game but when you're (allegedly) taunting the fans/band/cheerleaders that's showing your focus isn't fully on the game and you're taking it too far. I never seen anything happen like that but I did have a problem with the 2 or 3 personal fouls it seemed that Graham would get every game because a few players would play like they were trying to get on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays and either come up with a taunting foul or late hit, etc. I've seen almost all of Graham's games this year and I can assure you the problems aren't there anymore. This season (before last week) I can only remember one personal foul and that's when Cam Allen made a big hit and dislodged the ball from a Marion receiver and stood over top of him a little too long. Last week I said there were a few dumb 15 yard penalties but when I watched the tape on it you could see why they were upset - a Grayson player unnecessarily earholed Mike Mason on a INT return at the 15 yard line when the the return only made it out of the end zone to the 1 yard line. It's still dumb to get the penalties but I could understand why you're upset and playing chippy after seeing your team mate motionless on the field and taken off on a gurney. Cooke, Workman, & Vineyard (among others) are the type of leaders you want on your team. They celebrate big plays but not at the expense of their team. Them being the leaders they have been is one of the main reasons that Graham is where they're at now. In my opinion last year's team was more talented top to bottom but this year'a team plays like a TEAM for 48 minutes. also - I doubt Tony said anything like that and if he did it would've been in a joking context. I'd bet my house that he doesn't have a hotel booked in Appomattox.. but it's smart to start that rumor. I understand why whoever did, did.
  18. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    No. It's a reasonable topic to discuss. It's why Union fans feel Graham is undisciplined. Just like I'm sure RV fans feel that way about Union, so on and so forth. But if it's been taken care of, that should be the response.
  19. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Then everybody should just shut up about it then, right?
  20. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Union has made many mistakes, and trust me they've been called out on them. I went to school with the seniors on this team for 11 years. They aren't perfect, none of us are. But when the topic is brought up we can't act like it never happened or is irrelevant. Everything that happened in BSG that night was wrong. Just like it was wrong when a Union player flipped off a ridgeview fan this year. Just like it was wrong when Union football players shot off fireworks in the parking lot. (😂😂) Good Grief.
  21. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I'll cry about it later.
  22. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I think it has, I think those kids got caught up in the moment and the proximity of the crowd didn't help things. Graham had a routine of coming out and doing a chant to get fired up. It's not a common thing in SWVA, but very common in other parts of the state. I think some of the opponents fans viewed it as being disrespectful. It is just a way if getting motivated and fired up before the game. I've only seen them do it a couple of times this year. The "come get some" chant. It's their way of getting fired up. Some teams do a dog pile, some teams jump around. This is just Graham's thing. I posted a video of what Oscar Smith does and that is just crazy. I do understand why some may have the opinion that Graham is un disciplined after that game. But it is definitely not a reflection of who they are and how they usually conduct themselves. I just think they were caught up in the moment. Later in the game they got what they felt was a bad call in a crucial situation and sort of list their cool then too. So, yes I do see your point.
  23. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I’m an adult talking to adults. Your the one who got up in his feelings man. It’s high school football. Enjoy it. I’m guessing you didn’t enjoy it much playing either.
  24. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Sounds like union is perfect and has never said or done anything wrong. My hat is off to them if so.
  25. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Fair point. I don’t think about that incident all the time. But it is understandable if people call them out Acknowledging the incident is not the same as bashing. They are kids but s lot of people, including myself, think they should know better. There have been incidents with Graham that have made Union people a bit ticked. From the sounds of what you are saying, it seems as if it has been addressed.
  26. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Fair point...
  27. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    It has nothing to do with Saturday's game.
