    I want to personally thank all of you guys for your well wishes for our family. I know that Shelly and Slick and Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Ella greatly appreciate everything that the community has done and is doing to honor Tony. Please continue to keep the Blevins and Webster families in your thoughts. I can honestly say, that he is absolutely the best kid that I have ever been associated with. I may be a little bias but I have never in my life seen a kid that is always smiling, up-beat and as positive as Tony was. It definitely shows is how the communities of Mercer and Tazewell as well as surrounding counties have come together to honor such a wonderful young man. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten!!

    The morning of the state championship game many people gathered behind the high school to show support for the team. Among them was Tony with his infectious smile. He made the trip to Salem to support Graham. After the game he was on the field living it up with his friends celebrating the Graham win. Had he not been wearing a Beaver jacket one would have thought he was a Graham Gman like everyone else. When Graham played at Giles this year, there he was supporting Graham again. I hope Bluefield will retire the #5 in his honor. Whoever the fortunate person is that received his heart, you got yourself a heart of a champion.

    Union Basketball 3-0 This Week

    All this board needs is another childish wanna be who results to name calling to attempt to make a point. Grow up, learn to have a conversation and then maybe we’ll keep talking sports. Until then I got nothing for you. Our conversations are about CURRENT sports, if you want to blow smoke about what a coach did 10 years ago start another thread and have a good conversation with yourself. The Bears are playing well, we all are happy about that. I’m sure as hell not going to bow down to some guy who just joined this board and pretend your are the guru of Union basketball.

    I will take that bet. He won't be coaching at DB or anywhere else for at least 5 years, as Ryan stated above, he is going to take time to be a dad. He also has twin girls in 7th or 8th grade I believe and nothing will happen before they are graduate. He is deeply rooted in the Greeneville community and no matter how much money The University of Kingsport throws at him he ain't coaching for a while...DB made their bed with Christian and you know the rest!

    WCYB Friday Night Rivals

    WCYB announces a weekly televised HS football game in 2019. Wouldn't be surprised by the week 2(Virginia) broadcast, especially with it being in BSG this year. https://wcyb.com/news/local/news-5-sports-announces-full-season-of-high-school-football-with-friday-night-rivals

    Folks if you don't mind say a prayer for Tony Webster from Bluefield. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as well. This fine young man and his family could certainly use them right now.

    When I was a junior at Bluefield High in 1979 we lost one of my friends and a great person at football practice. His name was Stanley Neal. Stanley started feeling poorly at practice and asked to get a drink of water. He was granted permission (which was not normal then) and collapsed at the water spigot. He died that night. He was just a Junior. His number 77 was the first jersey to ever be retired. Only the number 17 of Jay Sims has since been retired.

    Classy move from new WVU coach Neal Brown to visit Bluefield High today to support those grieving right now. The loss is of a magnitude I've never experienced in this community before and never want to again. Continued strength and love out the Websters, Blevins, and Beaver Nation.

    D-B needs a program overhaul from the ground up, and right now, the talent level in the middle schools is pretty low. Robinson and Sevier won 1 game between them last season, and that was Sevier beating Robinson. D-B lost several linemen, a competent, experienced QB, and arguably the region's best RB from last year.

    They have a tremendous basketball coach, he will do great things if left alone..If...I believe that Christian was the back up plan when the coach they really wanted backed out on them...

    I'm glad they're FINALLY doing this. Imagine the games that would've been televised if they had done this 20-30 years ago.

    A guy that I work with at the Big E always refers to him as "our Akers". There's no doubt DB could become a monster if he ever made that decision, but I honestly don't think he will. He wants to be a Dad and that's very understandable. That's not to say they won't load up the Brinks truck and head that way in the future...lol

    Correct. He stepped down yesterday. I think most saw this coming. He wants to be able to travel and watch his son play at Army once he's eligible to play.

    Graham @ Richlands.

    They could have won by 40 or 50 had they not worked on that halfcourt offense first three quarters, lol. What a sad state of affairs for Richlands girls to lose to G-Girls who hadn't won a regular season game until tonight. Richlands had a respectable lead a couple times. I didn't think Graham girls would win a game this season, I stand corrected.

    Now, now. If you did that all those Wise County adults wouldn't be able to hate on other kids. Well wait they probably still would, they would just hate on the kids at the one school that they didn't really even know. Kind of like now except with more schools. Never mind, make it one school. haha

    I hadn't considered that but very much a possibility. I don't wish cancer on anyone and don't take it lightly but I'm still not a fan of his!

    I know Boeheim survived prostate cancer. Wonder if this may be an issue related to that.

    Glad somebody else called out that strange and inaccurate statement made above. Graham and even Richlands have accomplished more, if you look strictly at results.

    Just because you played college basketball doesn’t mean you can coach basketball at any level. Some people just don’t have what it takes to transfer it over and teach another person. Seen it many of times around this region. Some of the best coaches I have seen never played the game they coach!!

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    Riverheads is like the guy who couldn’t win a track meet as a boy so he identified as a girl and finally won! Good on you!

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    I got it. I just can’t resist an opportunity to gig Riverheads. They remind me of a sandbagging golfer. Would rather win the first or second flight rather than compete in the championship flight.

    Thanks BigWinners and all the Union fans that spoke to me after the games for the shout out for him, I feel that Union will have a really good defense next year...On the offences side we still need to plug in some players...(Meaning the boys need to work hard in the off seasons to feel some of the gaps)..This is my opinion only "Coach Turner is a great mentor and leader for the boys at Union"...For what he's taught my SON in 5 months hands down, Him and his stuff has brought him to the next level... And there a lot of people that know me from Union...I have told all the KIDS that spoken to me that there NO OFFSEASON IN FOOTBALL NO MORE!! ITS... 24/7....365 GO BEARS!!!
