  1. Galax @ Narrows

    Galax has faced significantly better competition throughout the course of the season. That has to account for something in my mind. It doesn't mean Narrows can't win this game. Galax missed Dougie's on-field leadership Friday night far more from a defensive standpoint than anywhere else. Game two in those situations always seem to go more smoothly than game one. But as UVAO said, Galax hasn't exactly been the model of consistency lately. If they come ready to play, they win going away. If not, they will be playing basketball Monday.
  2. SWVA Best

    I remember my uncle taking me to watch Joe Stiltner when Bland would come to Fries. He seemed like superman to my 5 year old self. I think my uncle told me he went to NC State but got into some trouble and was either kicked out or left school after only a season. Stiltner averaged 41.6 points per game his senior year and 27.1 points per game for his career at Bland. I pulled those numbers from the VHSL Book of Records.
  3. Grayson co. Vs Ridgeview

    Funny story about "little league mama's". I was helping the Galax Recreation Center a few years ago referee some 8-man football. One of the coaches, who happens to be in administration in the Galax Public School system, grabbed a 3rd grade kid by the facemask and started jerking the kid around while screaming at him for going downfield, rather than blocking. Mama, in full Army BDU's, came running onto the field and teed off on the "coach". She beat the tar out of him. The other guys asked us, "aren't you going to help him". Nope, i'm not getting between mama bear and her cubs!
  4. Giles vs Appomattox

    Very nicely played EH31. Very nice, indeed!
  5. Giles vs Appomattox

    If the coaches and players are as concerned with the horn as the VAPreps community seems to be, Appo might want to inflate the basketballs for Monday.
  6. Bullit Park vandalism

    Seems like a common theme lately to have local football programs experience vandalism. Somebody spray painted the cars of several Galax players last week while they were in Independence for the Grayson game. I hope everyone responsible is caught and made examples of.
  7. First round Playoff updates

    I'm not sure anyone has ever clearly defined "it" but he has whatever "it" is in spades! #33 is a freshman as well and they are both special talents for the Class 1 level. They both have brothers that will join them on varsity in two years.
  8. Grayson co. Vs Ridgeview

    Ahh, forgot about that one. But still a solid record against Dickenson County opponents.
  9. First round Playoff updates

    He is.
  10. Grayson co. Vs Ridgeview

    Grayson seems to have Dickenson County's number. Maybe Dixon should have sought some advice from McPherson before facing Clintwood and Haysi. McPerson is 2-0, Dixon is 0-3. Who would have thunk it?!?!?
  11. First round Playoff updates

    Blake Brown has been a 1,000 yard back for a couple of seasons. He has fell short of that this season, though. Keaton Beeman may be as much to blame for that as anything else. He is only a freshman but he is far beyond that with the pads on. If this kid gets a shot at significant carries, everyone will know who he is before the playoffs are over.
  12. First round Playoff updates

    From what I am being told this morning, Dougie is out for the remainder of the season with a broken foot.
  13. Hampton - 85, Bluefield College - 68

    I've been texting back and forth with my brother about this. I can't stand to feel like I provided faulty information so, I want to get it right and my memory isn't what it used to be. The first was his freshman season and was a preseason/exhibition game at Radford. Radford turned around and lost a week later to Concord. The second wasn't Radford. Bluefield beat Elon a couple of years after my brother graduated.
  14. Hampton - 85, Bluefield College - 68

    My brother played basketball at Bluefield from '98-'02. If memory serves, they beat Radford University two years in a row. I'm just not certain if those games were early season games, exhibition games or a combination.
  15. Grayson co. Vs Ridgeview

    I wasn’t there and have no insight on what happened. What I will say as a former official for a little over 20 years, if I’m going to err, it will be on the side of self preservation! About 20 years ago while umpiring a baseball tournament at the Moyer in Salem, things got heated between our 3-man crew and some parents. We turned our backs and walked away when one of those parents hit the home plate ump in the back of he head with a bat. The impact gave him a skull fracture. To this day, Jeff gets daily treatment similar to that of a stroke survivor. He has balance and coordination issues and suffers from slurred speech, headaches and vertigo. As I said, I wouldn't turn my back again and will err on the side of self preservation. Even if some think I’ve overreacted!
