    Podcast Questions?

    Will Gate City be out of their funk in the foreseeable future?
  3. Fan experience at games is one component. If you like hearing Rocky Top then welcome aboard. Another is colors. Tradition is another. A team’s schematics can be a component. Many—not all—people are drawn by geographic location. Others are drawn to a team for success. Do not choose a team solely for that team’s success because you will eventually be let down hard.

    Darren Reed In

    No offense GC fans but I don’t think Reed alone is the answer to the question. It will take a lot of changes. It is a process.

    Ridgeview should be the favorite to finish first in the M7.

    2018 Football Schedules

    I imagine Union has the same schedule. Just flipped from home to away and vice versa.

    James Mitchell is a.....

    That’s the bottom line. Lol
  11. I have seen a lot of posts on preps that show no respect toward SWVA. My junior year of high school at PV in 04, we played Manassas Park in the championship and lost to an amazing team by a TD. A lot of the Manassas Park fans thought we, the band, would be playing banjos, skillets, and fiddles. And that our uniforms were bibbed overalls and straw hats. They were shocked to see 85 members in uniform compared to 25. And they thought the fan base would be over there in rusted up 1970 Chevy pick ups where the engine is fixing to fall out. And when I see guys like Gator Bait, AdvocateOfMany434, and perhaps Stabler, I am glad I do not post on preps. And you had people in Appomattox on Facebook who think we are a bunch of hicks. I am pretty sure Appomattox is no less “hick” than SWVA.

    The bottom line, home in Wise County is great but there is nothing there.

    Football only part of fight for Louisa Co HC

    Go Lions.
  15. Rooting for the Warriors. I don’t think they’ll win though. Still rooting for them. Unfortunately this will likely be a 42-7 type affair in favor of Riverheads. Prove me wrong.
