    I'd rather sit closer to the field so the school children can hear me as I swear at them and drink in public.

    Latest update in our experience.... Boy made the varsity team (kind of a big deal -- only one other sophomore was invited to join the roster as a field player). Coach actually gave him a choice of playing another year of JV (getting as much playing time as he could possibly want and serving as team captain) or accepting a spot on the varsity team (with the assumption that he probably would not see a lot of game time this season). Son chose the varsity option mainly because he thinks he can benefit from the more intense training requirements compared to JV. While I still don't harbor any illusions of stardom -- and I'm personally skeptical about his status as a recruiting prospect -- we do realize that several doors of opportunity still remain open to him. If he manages to break into the lineup this year, I guess we will have to get extremely serious about this whole business. And I was in the process of typing that I don't think we're near that point when yet another "personal invitation" to attend a low level Division I "elite level" camp found its way into my email Inbox. With regard to the camp invitation angle.... He has some pretty extensive plans for this summer (a church mission trip and a trip abroad through school) which will basically prevent him from following up on any of the camp invitations. So our game plan is to contact the programs that might interest him and advise them that although he's not available this summer (for spiritual and academic reasons), he'd still like to be considered. If they continue to communicate with us past that point then he'll whittle it down to a few camps that he might actually attend during the summer of 2019. If it seems like we're adding obstacles of our own to the process -- admittedly we are. Some of that is an effort to manage expectations (and minimize potential disappointment down the road). Some of it is testing the guidance and role of the Lord in this whole process (the "if it's meant to be" angle). And some of it is due to the fact that he's like most 15 year old kids in that he doesn't really know what he wants to do next week, let alone the next 4-6 years of his life. And ultimately it is his decision. If all of this is extremely tedious or not very informative, I apologize. Also don't want to come across as bragging about my kid (although I am certainly proud of him and his two younger brothers). But I'm getting a firsthand look at a process that is allowing me to test some of my own theories about athletic recruiting. I still think that recruiters are more influenced by things like physical size than they are by actual "on the field" performance.

    Thad Wells Heading to Tarheel State?

    I don't believe he comes back to Richlands. I used to think he was the heir apparent to Mance, but his career trajectory is heading up, and let's be real, a move from Mooresville to Richlands isn't even lateral, it's down.

    As a wheelchair user, I take offense to your "maybe a wheelchair game would suit you". Yea, maybe those guys cant dunk or whatever but those guys that play wheelchair Bball have more heart, guts, determination, etc etc etc than all of these D1 and Pro Bball players put together. I admire the guys that play wheelchair ball. They go at it with reckless abandon. Flipping their chairs over and all. I've never went that extreme with it, but I give them mad props for what they do.

    Winchester City ordinance doesn't allow for lighting in most zoning categories. Shopping centers and large parking lots are allowed to have lighting but they can't be over 35 feet tall and must point directly downward with minimal "ray". The city also has a strict 45 foot limit on the height of buildings from grade. The pretentiousness of NOVA never fails to disappoint.

    Gate City versus Central

    Youd think GC hadnt been tested this year by the way people are going on about this 13 pt win against WC. Sometimes a team has a good game plan and executes well and plays their best game of the season. Tip your hats to them and move on.....you got the win whether or not it was ugly. I dont think GC played a great game in the least.....but ill give more credit to WC and what they were able to do. Id be willing to wager theres not another team in 2A that would go 4-1 against North Meck, Cleveland, Fern Creek, Science Hill, and Lakota East. That stretch included 1 comeback win after being down 17 pts to a very good Cleveland team. The GC team last year would have caved after being down 17 pts. So lets not overreact too much, this team is tested.....not just talented.

    Yeah! Back in my day, basketball players took gunshot wounds on the court and never missed a minute. If he can't handle a few wimpy HS fouls, he will never handle being punched in the face by Ron Artest, because that always happens in D1 basketball. Getting clotheslined by Dikembe Mutumbo is part of the game, better get used to it, little punks.

    Just stumbled upon it this morning, so I haven't really given much thought to the methodology behind it. I'd be curious to know how they define "actively recruited." I'm assuming that it relates to the states of origin for actual Division I athletes which is then processed against the total number of high school participants in each state -- but that's not obvious. As things stand now, my son has legitimate invitations from over two dozen Division I soccer programs (and that list is growing). Frankly, I'm not smart (or experienced) enough to know if that means he is being "actively recruited."

    GC @ Abingdon

    I'm going to go ahead and stop you right there. EVERY GYM IS FILLED WHEN THEY COME TO TOWN. Hate Gate City all you want but you can't deny this team is special. The ARBY'S was filled to capacity on multiple occasions, one day at 9am because of this team. And it wasn't just GC fans or fans of the team they were facing either. I was one of the few from Richlands shut out on the first day and outside Viking Hall along side me were people in Chillhowie, Union, Grundy, George Wythe and Lebanon attire, just to name a few...

    How is GC basketball different than ‘15 Richlands football or this years’ union football team, in terms of being “special”? Mac is viral. He brings a video crew to every game as well as having ballislife live stream some of their games. He has 250k Instagram followers. He has celebrities and professional players following him and commenting on his posts. It’s pretty simple why this team is special.

    GC @ Abingdon

    Because historically, SWVA produces championship caliber teams in football pretty frequently. In boys basketball, there are FAR fewer examples of a far-SWVA team, especially at the 2A level, being this talented. They have 2 kids on that roster that are going to sign LOI's to play at D1 colleges. That's 2 out of what, 11 or 12 players? To inflate that to a 50 person football team, that would be like Union having 7-9 D1 players on this year's team, or the same for Richlands. This GC team is easily one of the most special SWVA basketball teams to ever come out of the area.

    Wait... you mean instead of Clintwood crying about Grayson County being “classless” and “unsportsmanlike” they just used the beating as motivation and got better? I’m glad Clintwood won the state championship because by not whining about Grayson County running up the score I think they forfeited their participation trophy? Someone fact check me on that

    Since we have gotten outside the area a bit. I attended a few games while stationed at Fort Bliss in El Paso Texas way back in he early 90's. Jones Stadium was built in 1916 and is easily, the most interesting stadium of any kind I have ever visited. http://www.texasbob.com/stadium_h/hof_jonesrr.html

    Thanks, @BHS03, for sharing. This is an exterior picture I found of Mt. Hope Municipal Stadium. I immediately thought about Tennessee High's Stone Castle. It turns out that both were WPA projects from 1930s. http://www.register-herald.com/archives/mount-hope-stadium/article_023b0116-e1e4-5e16-b62b-2cca30eb8086.html
