    Akers Out at GC?

    Yeah, they could score some points, especially during his first year. He implemented the spread offense, back before it took over the game like it has now. It could be flashy at times.

    Akers Out at GC?

    He was only with us for 2 years, but he tried the “Square peg in a round hole” philosophy with our kids, offensively speaking. I believe we were 6-4 in his first year and 4-6 in his second year. Coaches and parents alike said that he regretted coming down here almost immediately. Now this is all heresay because I wasn’t “Bearcat Dad” yet at that time, but I did watch the games. The team looked undisciplined and there were a lot of games, especially in year 2, that the entire team looked lost. Dont let the 6-4 record in year one fool you. VHS had a very weak schedule in the two years that he was here. We weren’t close to being competitive to the Gate City’s, Tn. High’s, or any of the good teams on our schedule then. He left as soon as the opportunity presented itself. An assistant coach from his staff, told me personally that he just never really clicked with the kids at VHS. He also said that Thurman refused to change his ways and adapt his schemes to fit his personnel. The assistant told me that he liked Thurman as a person, but the coaches were always butting heads during his time here. We were very excited to get him, but it just didn’t work.

    He could possibly work wonders for GC, but that experiment was a miserable failure at VHS.

    They played VHS as one of their non-district games. I believe their others were Pulaski and Hidden Valley. I could be missing another one.

    Best 2 players are on the same team?

    Sometimes there are really, really good players that will play on Saturdays, on average to below average high school teams. Take Dalton Mullins from Wise, last year. Spent his senior year on a team that struggled, he was injured, then came back and had a good showing at the VHSCA All-Star game, and is now at Carson-Newman(I think). Some excellent football players become afterthoughts in our region when they don’t play for one of the powerhouse programs. EDIT: I’ve never been a huge fan of debating who the “Best Football Player” in an area is. Best at a position or best athlete seems like a better discussion. Just because someone is a great RB, doesn’t mean that they would be any good as a LT. No disrespect to the OP, just my two cents.
