    Congrats Jeremy Houseright

    Do you think Barry Jones will make an impact? Heard he's heading that way.

    That's a bummer, but I completely understand. Thanks for the update!

    Lee High School

    Forgot about that area. In addition to the high school kids that attended Appy over the years, I remember Appy Elementary getting a huge influx when Keokee Elementary finally shut down around 2013. Wasn't sure how many of those kids continued on to Union. Still closer than going to Lee I guess.

    Lee High School

    Very true. Lee is a long county. Getting kids to a central location by bus every day is certainly not ideal.

    Both of these statements are correct. Kids attending outside their area only happens in Richlands and it is indeed bad, very bad. At Union, we like to refer to it as Intellectual Annexation. Just trying to give these kids a helping hand in being successful in achieving their goals and dreams in life. Any ability to play sports, especially football, is completely coincidental. An anomaly, if you will. Also, we are currently accepting applications for any students that may be over 6'3" and 300 lbs or can run a sub 4.6 40. After all, isn't discrimination against speedy and/or big and tall young men between the ages of 15-18 a travesty that we should all be working to curtail? 😁

    Not enough! Lol If we're talking about actual transfers (kids that were enrolled in Lee High at some point), a couple over the last few years. If you're talking about kids that live within Lee Co boundaries and have attended PV/Union over the years, lots. The section of 23 between BSG and Duffield and the section of 58 between BSG and Dryden have a lot of kids that attend or have attended PV/Union because of the close proximity. Less than 10 minutes to BSG or 30-60 to Rye Cove or Lee High.

    NO! I'm hoping Union will get fat by gobbling up some more Lee kids. haha

    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
  10. I'm guessing that you didn't follow the Facebook/Twitter/News drama after Sensabaugh was released from Crockett.

    Changes for 2019

    I don't like rotating regions. The prospect of A vs D is beyond ridiculous UNLESS the semis were at Salem or another neutral location equidistant for the 2 teams. I wouldn't mind seeing a cross bracket between C/D and A/B. Like #1 seed in D hosts number #2 in C and vice versa. Then, the 2 remaining play in the semis. This could prevent a regular season rematch for the Region championship. Of course, it would also prevent the possibility for a Region championship trophy. I definitely like the power point rating to determine higher seed when discussing cross region play. Not sure how I feel about just 4 teams. Been too many 5 over 4 and 9 over 8 (old system) games to justify getting rid of all 4 lower seeds. Maybe top 6 with 1 and 2 getting a bye. This year's Richlands team is a perfect example. Pretty sure that Ridgeview would have made it to the final had they played Grayson Co instead. Mandatory turf should only come into the conversation if the home team's field is declared unsafe OR they mandate neutral sites for semis. With all the possibilities that we could come up with, I would be happy if they just left things alone. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Changes for 2019

    Here's some possible changes. The following will be discussed at the VHSL Executive Committee meeting in January. No guarantee that these will actually be changed, just discussed. Possibility of playing semi-final football games at a neutral site, like basketball currently does, rather than the home stadium of the highest seed. Possibility of playing semi-final football games on turf fields. Possibly reducing the number of qualifying teams for each region from 8 to 4 to eliminate 1 playoff game. Possibility of rotating regions for semi-final games. Instead of A/B and C/D could be D/B and A/C or D/A and C/B.

    VA Championship Updates

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think @oldfool was downing Graham or taking away from their victory by saying Goochland wasn't a good team. He was just saying that Goochland may have been a little overhyped and felt that Graham would win easily...which they did. Before the game, I basically said the same thing...just in a different way.
