    Casto retires at Riverheads

    Riverheads is like the guy who couldn’t win a track meet as a boy so he identified as a girl and finally won! Good on you!

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    I got it. I just can’t resist an opportunity to gig Riverheads. They remind me of a sandbagging golfer. Would rather win the first or second flight rather than compete in the championship flight.

    2018 Arby's Classic Thread

    His name is Tyler Nickell. Just turned 15. 6’6, 210 lbs. Has scored 30+ 5 times this year. He’s a matchup nightmare. Can play with his back to the basket but is shooting almost 50% from the three point line. I doubt he plays all 4 years at ER. Probably end up in a private school somewhere. Already getting a lot of attention from multiple colleges. WVU, GMU, URI and JMU were in attendance at the last home game. He didn’t handle the very physical play in Mussleman, WV so well the other night. Seemed a bit surprised at all the contact allowed.

    The best player from ER is not the freshman. Senior Dalton Jefferson is the man. Both are 6’6 and both can shoot, post and rebound. But Jefferson is the leader. However, they have been lead in scoring by 5 different guys this year. They are good and should make it out of Region B. But being the new kid on the block against the old guard is a distinct disadvantage, see football. I believe they have the talent to make the final four but maybe lack the experience to win it all.

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    Math teacher?!? No wonder they struggle with basic math. He must teach “new math” when counting students. 😲 i know I am beating a dead horse but the Gladiator enrollment numbers has been a standing joke ever since I moved to the area. Riverheads’ three 1A titles in a row equates to something like ‘Bama winning three FCS titles in a row. Im done now. Sorry for the rant.

    Riverheads is always miraculously just below the 2A threshold.

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    The rumor is that he left immediately after the school board hired a person who could count past 474...😄

    Geez Ape...your knowledge is lacking. Here’s a quote you may want to ponder. “It is better to be thought a fool than to open mouth (or type) and prove that you are”.

    Might have to change your share to a banana split! You seem rational and coherent. Happy New Year and good luck. PS: I really hope to see GC play East Rock this year. ER is a real final 4 possibility. If it comes to ER v GC, the concession stand visit is on me!

    You can split the rotten bananas with Ape. If you bothered to read, I said I’m sure the TEAM expects to win, and they should have that expectation. You FANS, on the other hand, are still living vicariously through the actions of teenagers. Just more proof of how/why you GC folks killed your “other” forum. RIP🙏 Now on to something with a bit of real substance. I recall a comment the Western Albemarle coach made about GC this past summer. He felt they were one of the better squads his team played on the summer circuit. That is significant and bodes very well for GC. Western plays a ton of summer basketball and Coach Maynard seldom hands out compliments to undeserving players or teams.

    Which year? What sport? What part of much larger do you not understand? Do you need me to explain lions share? I knew it wouldn’t take much for someone from GC to make a stupid reply. Congratulations Ape! You win the rotten bananas.

    Even a blind hog finds the trough every now and then. Glad GC team expects to win; that is the way teams should think. But the fan base needs to be realistic. The lions share of wins will go to the much larger school.

    2018 Arby's Classic Thread

    I guess the GC folks imagined that they could play with DB...but reality is that disparity in size is such an advantage for the bigger school. GC will be more than okay in Virginia v. 2A schools. Just temper the real expectations against the big schools...you'll sleep better!

    Chilhowie/Riverheads, Part II: VA 1A Championship

    East Rock defeated Riverheads 28-0 by taking away the run. If the Warriors can do that, I’d give them a good chance of winning. And they are familiar with that quirky offense this time. I sure hope the warriors take this one. Riverheads fans are annoying to say the least. They are great when they win but after a loss...not so much.

    Graham/Goochland: VA 2A Championship

    Just got home from the ER/Goochland game...Was a tough one for ER. First trip deep into the playoffs and it showed. Goochland was more prepared and it showed. On the field and the sidelines. Goochland earned/deserves this trip to the finals. Goochland reminded me of the Salem teams of late. They don't really do one thing that stands out or overwhelms you. They just did everything well. I think if Graham gets out front, Goochland does not have the explosiveness to play catch up. But what the heck do I know? I thought ER would win it all. Ive got one unhappy camper who now has to get ready for the hardcourt. Good luck to Graham.

    Graham/Radford: AA Semifinals

    I have seen East Rock NUMEROUS times this year (and last year and the year before...). They have one of the most complete high school teams I have seen in 2A in many years. Someone posted about watching them on FB and didn’t think much of them. I hope you get to see them up close. The early weakness was perceived to be the defense. But that has improved by leaps and bounds each game. But the defense is not equal to that offense! They have put up 40+ points in the first half 6 times! The most impressive win may have been the season opening 34-7 win over 4A Spotswood. They have seen plenty of speed this year. Central Woodstock is loaded with speed; notably Clanton — the state 100/200/400 champ— and the QB from Madison - sprint/track scholarship to George Mason— and Buffalo Gaps RB Rivenburg— offers from JMU, WM (I hear) Enough of that stuff. If, if, if it comes down to ER and Graham (which I hope it does) sounds like it will be an athletic showcase! I don’t think speed, or the exposure to each other’s wheels, will be the deciding factor. Neither will size ER is PLENTY big and athletic. ER is a fairly new school and has a limited post season history. That will be a Graham advantage...if the match up occurs.

    Way Too Early VHSL Class 2 Preseason Poll

    Gate City pummeled Western Albemarle this summer...and both teams had their studs. WA coach Maynard said GC would win the Jefferson District hands down. 8th? Hardly.

    Who will be the giant killers rd 1

    Have you heard of East Rockingham? That is a complete team. If they can avoid an upset at the hands of Central Woodstock, I would give them a better than 50-50 chance of winning it all.

    Richlands vs Va High

    I hope it is not in the first round... But who knows? The ‘Cats did beat Gretna on the road a few years ago...and if not for a questionable play call, would have gotten Richlands a year or two later. But beating Graham on the road would be a TALL task this season

    State Title 2A

    Central Woodstock is on the “watch list”. However, barring any injuries, East Rock is at the top of my list. Their defense has improved dramatically. The offense is top shelf.

    Abingdon @ VHS

    Doesn’t Chandler Davis coach football at VHS? He is the coach of one of the premier travel baseball programs in the South (Dirtbags). Maybe he can recruit a few of those boys to the gridiron?!?
