Chilhowie Field

Recommended Posts

What a complete joke and major distraction for those kids from Chilhowie.  Galax has to have all of the motivation in the world now.  Chilhowie fans, staff, and administration are acting like moving a game from a muddy field to a college stadium with wonderful facilities to a field with sinkholes and giant rocks in the corner of the end zone with pine trees two feet from the pylons is a great idea.  Also why did they go practice at Emory & Henry?  I smell ego city because VHSL moved it to Emory without consulting with them first.  I hope all that complained are happy with the outcome.  I hate it for those kids especially the seniors.  Reminds me of Tennessee trying to hire Greg Schiano lol!

Intense county rivalry.

It goes all the way back to Rich Valley and R.B. Worthy days this is not something that just popped up when we became Northwood. Both schools hated Chilhowie before they combined as to why nobody could ever answer that.

Can somebody clue the rest of us in as to why there is such distaste for one another there?

Its an age old rivalry, probably had something to do with horse thieves stealing from one another in the 1800's.

Funny how the rivalry stays true there but in Tazewell Co most everybody pulls for whoever is still going in the county

There was a massive brawl between the two schools several years ago, maybe 10 years or so, if I recall...

There was a huge brawl that happened at the end of a basketball game in the 87/88 season. I know this to be true because I was in it and remember it like it was yesterday.

IMO, Chilhowie earned the right to play the game wherever they choose.  It's football, if they want to play in the mud then the game should be played in the mud.

I agree with u on that chilhowie should get to choose.  I can't recall any other season that has been affected by so much rain as this year has.  I think since the week Union lost to Abingdon it has rained either Friday or Saturday every week except last week.
