    Graham/Radford: AA Semifinals

    The score as I have it is @EH31 owes me a Frosty and @SWVAgridiron owes me a hotdog. Guess I won't be hungry when I go to the game... 😄

    I kinda feel this way about it. I liken it to being brothers...........well, maybe stepbrothers........in that I can say things about you and we can beat up on each other, but we stand together when it comes to the rest of the state. I know that some on both sides may feel different, I will always pull for the Tazewell teams when we are out of it, and if there are no Tazewell Co. teams left then I will be pulling for region D teams. Besides that, I played ball with D.Palmer in high school and I'm still good friends with him so I wish him the best ! I will be a Graham fan this week and the next and hope they bring the championship back to Tazewell Co !

    Narrows vs Parry Mccluer KO??

    You all are correct. I was a dick for saying that. And I will not ban you for calling me out. After I watched the video, I saw that it was PM that initiated the fight. Sorry the coach was injured. Good luck vs. Galax...

    What a complete joke and major distraction for those kids from Chilhowie. Galax has to have all of the motivation in the world now. Chilhowie fans, staff, and administration are acting like moving a game from a muddy field to a college stadium with wonderful facilities to a field with sinkholes and giant rocks in the corner of the end zone with pine trees two feet from the pylons is a great idea. Also why did they go practice at Emory & Henry? I smell ego city because VHSL moved it to Emory without consulting with them first. I hope all that complained are happy with the outcome. I hate it for those kids especially the seniors. Reminds me of Tennessee trying to hire Greg Schiano lol!

    Drainage should be just fine pouring into those caves underneath it as long as another sinkhole doesn't open up...

    I've been blessed to watch and even play football in high school with some guys who went on to play on Sundays, and to this day the one player that could take over in all 3 facets of the game was Ahmad Bradshaw. He could take a handoff and break a big run for a TD, receive a punt or kickoff and run it back, and on D deliver a big hit or intercept a pass and score on that ! He was truely a MAN amoung boys out there ! Good luck Graham !!

    Why does it surprise anyone that Richlands is having success? Look at their losses. 1) Early season loss to Union at home by two TD's but if I remember this game was pretty close until late. 2) Blacksburg away. This one was crazy because I think Richlands came back strong in the 2nd Q. Got blown out by a D4 team in the 2nd half that could win the states. 3) Bluefield at Home. Played with them for 1 quarter until Bluefield blew them out in the 2nd quarter on big plays. 4) Graham away. They got embarrassed in this game for sure. They showed heart at Va High and William Byrd. I still think Graham blows them out but it is because Graham is just a lot better not because I think poorly of Richlands.

    I think they should move it to the Tazewell Middle School Gym.

    Look I understand your and their concerns and disappointment. Although the post I have seen in social media this morning about calling Galax a bunch #$$##0because they didn't want to play in the mud and they are the reason it got moved is petty and simply not the case. That's not how the VHSL works, three games got moved. I think the surrounding areas would be more simpathetic to the communities complaints if all that was not being spewed all over social media. Galax had no say in it, the school admins no this to be true yet they continue to let their community think this is the case. Look Galax beat us twice this year and I am all for Chilhowie getting the win, although people saying what they are social media is just making Chilhowie look bad. To be honest it is placing an ugly blemish on what is a stellar moment for your community. I completely get the financial impact to the community, I heard Galax had went out and spent a couple of thousand dollars on new cleats for their players just for this game. I am sure their is people on here from Chilhowies administration reading this, so step up and ensure the misplaced anger at the fans of Galax is placed where it should be on the VHSL. Sorry rant over and good luck.

    Chilhowie is the favorite anywhere on Earth; however, the lower gravitational force on Mars would clearly favor Galax's passing game. How Would Football Work if You Played It on Mars? https://www.wired.com/2015/10/physics-how-would-you-play-football-on-mars/

    Akers Out at GC?

    I THINK what Grapeape was trying to convey was that fan attendance at the games is not why Akers lost his job. Akers lost his job because of his record, his attitude toward players/assistant coaches, and the direction the program was heading (falling). He literally started alienating players/assistant coaches on Day 1. For example........you do not talk openly in the field house about coaching at VA High being your dream job. GC does not have a history of running off head coaches. Counting Akers we have had 4 head coaches during the last gazillion years. Slight exaggeration. :) Several weeks ago someone, who said he was on the team under Akers, posted and talked about some issues with Akers. Unless you were close to the team, or are close to people who are close to the team, then you really had no idea what was going on inside the program. So many people, not from GC, have posted about the attitude toward Akers from the GC fans......without having any knowledge about what was going on in the program. I have attended GC games for 40 years. Played under Colobro. We have had years where the talent level was not exceptional, but we have always had coaches who could get the most out of the players. I know some will disagree with me, but our OVERALL talent level the last few years has not been great. Plus.......we have not had a coach who can get the most out of the players. You add those two together and you end up with 1-9 seasons. Factor in Akers' inability to build positive relationships with players/coaches and you end up with the current state of our program. I am truly surprised he lasted as long as he did. Sadly, I believe the School Board would have acted quicker if they thought they could find a quality coach, and if they had set their egos aside. Remember.........Akers was what......the School Board's third choice? Not sure how it works at other schools, but the AD at GC has no influence over who is hired. Have seen him thrown under the bus several times. Going forward: Most GC fans will tell you that there is not a coach in America that will restore our program in a year or two. The rest of our fan base needs to accept that. We need a HC and Assistant Coaches who will bring some enthusiasm back to the program. We need these coaches to be in the halls of the school encouraging kids to participate. I have no idea who has applied or who will be interviewed. Personally, I do not care if a "GC Person" is hired. I do think the position is a great opportunity for someone. You could be the HC of a program with a tradition that few in the state can match. A program that has a fan base starved for success, and who would eagerly support a HC who gets the program heading in a positive direction. Plus........you will have a School Board that wants/needs you to succeed after the Akers debacle. Even with our recent failures, believe we are the last, or second to last, AA Team from SW VA to win a state championship. (I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong....which happens a lot. :) )

    Only the 2nd battle between these two in West Virginia but it seems to be an ongoing struggle in Canada. #KnowledgeIsPower
