    Akers Out at GC?

    In ‘97 GC beat Jefferson Forrest in the State Semis...they are a legitimate Division 4 school. Yes, worth noting that we also lost to both PV and Appy in the regular season that year — with all 3 of those team winning state titles. I’m not sure SWVA as a whole has late 90’s level talent on the immediate horizon...much less GC. But, we have historically been competitive on a state level every decade since Virginia football playoffs began in 1970 (Didn’t win one in the 80’s with the Fry - Colobro transition, but had a couple deep runs). We still have the kids...including LL...just need to get them in the system early and then out of the HS halls and on the team. Easier to type than to actually do, but completely do-able — with the right staff.

    GC Head Coach

    Poor argument. Beating GC the last few years isn’t exactly a good litmus to prove them a tough team.

    Akers Out at GC?

    He purportedly resigned over a historic shortage of talented players. It’s a shame really.

    GC Head Coach

    100% Probably unlikely, but we can hope. If we could get GS and retain some Blue Devil alumni — Darren and Jeremy — we’ll be in a good spot.

    Akers Out at GC?

    It’s Fry, not Frye. We can all speculate on how many games other coaches would’ve won in the Akers era...and it’s just that...speculation. What I can guarantee is that the past three teams would have played with a greater demonstration of football fundamentals — principally blocking and tackling. This is what the people in GC are upset about and something you can’t understand from the box scores or Facebook.

    Richlands vs GC

    It would be contrary to the narrative that the only problem at GC is a lack of talent. Can’t have that.

    Gate City vs Graham Benefit Game

    Agree. Blaming it all on talent is a cop out for those that have had a hand in the fall of the program — it’s GC, low talent years should be 6-5, losing in the first round of the playoffs. The issues with the program are deeper than the roster.

    Graham vs. Gate City live stream

    For what it’s worth, I paid the fee for the game tonight — despite the issues with the last stream — and so far so good.

    Redford bench hit with a Technical with 4:37 left, GC up 10

    Your Region 2D Champion...

    Most people in Gate City are asking the same question...

    Man, I hope not. Where did you hear that?

    Congrats to Graham, hats off.

    Whoa! Coach or player?

    Man, it must be crazy there. Tim Hayes just posted on Twitter that a Graham fan was ejected after having words with Scotty V, GC coach.
