    Tiger Tilt did you go to the Honaker/RC game last night? I was trying to follow along while at RCs band concert and awards show. Congrats to the Tigers on the win. I thought some of my former players were going to pull the upset the way the game was going.

    Its going to be odd not working a full season of games this year. I did hear RC has received a nice addition to the new staff.

    And they played what many thought was the toughest part of their schedule to start the season. Im stunned at how they have looked.
  6. Graham Clark Resigns

    That is surprising. Neither guy is 50 yet I wouldnt think. Both graduated from South around 90-92 didnt they?

    It is somewhat surprising to me as well. When they released the names to the media that did not include Christian I do not believe I was surprised also. I know Greg Ryan has done a good job at Greenback recently but I truly expected them to bring in someone with more clout. Had he not just taken the TL Hanna job I could have seen Jeff Herron returning to the area for the DB job. Really more surprised they didnt try taking Carter away SH.

    DB swerved all the media it seems and names Joey Christian their new head coach.

    When is the fiddlers convention since I am too lazy to google it at the moment? May make for a good reason to get back to the Smokehouse and have some banana puddin.
  10. New SWVA Sports Pod Series

    Trazel does live in Johnson City. Calvin lives there or Gray as well I believe. I think Calvin is a sales rep or Pepsi or Coke I think. Ran into in at WalMart in Kingsport one day and talked to him for a while. Both would be great interviews. Thomas is a great about doing these types of things. I had another friend who has a podcast who interviewed Thomas just about 3 months ago and said it was much easier to make happen than he would have expected.

    Carroll is still around. I will probably see him next Friday at the UVA Athletics golf tourney.
  12. Transfer?

  13. Travel Ball - Pros and Cons - Let's hear it

    The biggest thing I believe in baseball is wearing out pitchers and catchers. Pitchers get the majority of attention but I do believe it takes a toll on kids knees catching as much as they can. Other than that, its different for every kid and finding the right mix of coaches who teach the game the right way and that a child feels comfortable with. Personalities matter and how things are handled. Finding people who do the right thing isnt hard. Getting on those teams can be. The next next thing is just not playing the love of the game out of the players. It varies from kid to kid. Its okay to have a kid who doesnt want to play a weekend and pick someone up if you have to than drive them away from the game. It doesnt mean they dont love the game or want to get better. Some coaches have a hard time accepting that IMO. As for Pros, if you want to get better its hard to beat game situation reps. Its even harder to beat getting them against good competition. Its no different than AAU basketball in that process.
