    Chancellor Harris from Tazewell was named Morehead State’s mens athletics Freshman of the Year so hopefully that’s a good sign for this area

  5. Very true, but Tazewell may be a bit closer. There will be eyes on a 2 or 3 Dawgs this year too. 🙂 Graham got more then their fair share last year, send some over this way. Just kidding. I like to see any of the county schools have success. I'm enjoying a nice season for THS baseball and softball right now, it's great for the community and school pride. THS has had a state champion wrestler this year and 2 state champion indoor track athletes. I predict a couple of more state titles from the track team this spring. The school is having a ton of academic successes as well the past several years. Graham and Richlands have also had their share of success the past few years, it's quite impressive how our kids in Tazewell county have performed. We are lucky to live where we do, the school buildings may be old, but the resources inside (the kids) are second to none!!

  7. Beavers Father and Uncle played at Richlands. Whether Brandon Beavers stays at RV or goes to another school, he's in good hands. His father and uncle are good dudes.

  8. I'll agree with that statement. There is always that fan for every school though. Know what I have seen from Central last year and was scratching my head on the play calling early in the game. For Tazewell people there is no real familiarity with the M7 as we don't play them overall. As far as the talent, I can't speak for the RV QB but I would love to see him matchup against Creasy and see who is best. Hard for me to believe that anybody is better than Creasey from what I've seen but they could be If you notice the lean of the board fans is whatever teams seem to be having their best seasons. Five years ago Graham fans were a little more quiet and Richlands fans dominated the board. Tazewell fans have been here same overall. We are thrilled to see our team being relevant again and you better believe we are going to support them and think that they are great and have big aspirations for the season. After all what's so wrong with that considering Washington and Dallas fans do that every year...

  12. You can go back and find it in this forum somewhere. I suggested a few years ago, Galax had a group of kids in middle school that would compete for multiple state championships. That group of kids will all be in high school this coming fall, ranging from the senior class to the freshman class. It's a remarkable run that happens to coincide with a more remarkable run coming out of Augusta County. I'm not complaining. What Galax has accomplished since 2010 is remarkable. But it's hard to look past how inept VHSL has been in creating classifications. I don't know how long this will last for Galax. My kids are old enough now that I'm just not aware of what is coming through the middle school. What I can say, before my daughter began driving herself in January, I would drop her off at the high school at 6:30 every morning for the shuttle to Governor School in Pulaski. The parking lot is right next door to the weight room/film room entry. Three dozen kids (at least) ranging in age from 12 to 18, all on time, showing up for weight training and film study before school. It's impressive to see in person. Especially when you see every football player of driving age bringing a couple of 7th graders with them. That's how culture and legacy is built.

  13. If we're just talking about this spring, then probably baseball, softball, girls soccer and track.... But, I get what you are saying, this is the football message board after all.

  14. Say what you want about losing seasons but I tend to look at how coaches done based on what they have to work with. When Palmer had a few Jimmys and Joes he won games. When you dont have the better Jimmys and Joes you tend not to win no matter who you are. Im not saying hes Lombardi, but hes a great person from all interactions I have had with him from HS til now, and wins the games he should and a few that he shouldnt.

  15. One could just as easily make the argument, why would Russell County Schools hire the man so quickly if the rumors were true!?!?! Makes one ponder the validity of those rumors. I have no clue what the rumors are and couldn't care less. Tiller may or may not be guilty of whatever these rumors suggest. Regardless of whether he is guilty or innocent, he is guilty by public perception in Dickenson County. Considering the insular nature of SWVA, our communities don't let those things go. Regardless of how good a situation may seem, some things simply aren't worth the hassle.

  18. I didn't move man, so help me, Not an inch. Most G-Men fans don't know that we were not kicking that extra point when the illegal procedure was called because we were going for 2. I watched the vid probably 50 times over the yrs and I still haven't seen any Raddy player move on that extra pt. Graham was tough. They moved it on the ground better than us and that gave em the edge.

  19. BandanaVT, I played my freshmen year of HS at Lord Botetourt before my parents moved us to Radford. We played Richlands & it seemed liked Bryan Beavers made every tackle. I played against Chris Patton and Graham multiple times and he was great but Beavers is the best HS Linebacker I played against in my 4 years of school

    Tazewell fall schedule

    Well, the Richlands folks are always gonna give it to you pretty good. Plus, the board is weighted toward Graham and Union and they see Tazewell as a non-factor. The other M7 teams just don’t play or know Tazewell and vice versa. Plus when the Dogs came to Central they got beat up pretty good. And throw in the pretty vocal pro-Dog fan that throws out superlatives and doesn’t really scout the other players around the region. That’s probably most of it. I think the Bulldogs will be a top 4-5 team in the region….no worse than 6. Until proven otherwise it’s Graham, Union automatically. RV has quietly moved into that top Tier and Central has been there the last 3-4 years and won’t drop too far. Richlands was there but have dropped over the past two seasons. You have to look at Va High and Tazewell next.

  21. Grayson County product Chris Shreve was an absolute standout at VT and played for the Green Bay Packers. Pulaski County product Gary Clark was a star at James Madison and played 12 seasons in he NFL. JJ Kelly product Carroll Dale was a star at VT and played 14 years in the NFL.

  22. I really think they need to have an Appalachian-specific mascot instead of something generic There's already too many new NOVA high schools with white bread logos and mascots & I just think we're better than that Buchanan County (or Coal Canyon) Miners (or Mountaineers or Ridgerunners) would be awesome

  23. Hard to find a role for 51 players, which is historically more than double the usual number. The coaching staff worked more to develop the kids than gunning for a gaudy W-L record. As a result, Tazewell will have a bonafide JV team for the first time in a while. On the varsity level, there will be some meaningful additions this year that will play early and often.

  24. Coal Canyon Express. Love the nod to the railroads. That train logo is cool. In SWVA, the Coal mines get lots of well deserved love historically, but the railroads provided and still provides an equally valuable service.

  29. I think you have to go with Graham until someone beats them. Graham knows how to win and RV is just learning. I think Union will be just fine and actually may knock off RV as RV has shown they aren’t consistently prepared for big games.

  32. He was encouraged to interview for RV, which he declined. Why? who knows, maybe its just not the right fit. Palmer runs a good program, always has. I said it was a good hire when PH got him and the Rebel faithful cried that he wasn't a good coach and had only coached losers. The man won at Ervinton, St Paul, and PH. Those weren't/aren't powerhouses but he had success. Castlewood will be a solid 1A program in a few years and be a 2nd round playoff team, just give the man time

  33. Most of the problems in Dickenson County go to the school board. The last few boards have allowed this mess to get out of hand. There are real problems at the schools. They can't get the new elementary school built on time. All of the custodians at Clintwood Elementary quit at once. 2 football coaches have left or retired in the last 3 years. Plus I'm sure a lot more stuff that not alot of people know about. I hope I'm wrong, but I sense that the county is wasting the school they have on the ridge with poor administration up to and including the superintendent.

  35. Think the drama on the ridge has played a part with a couple of kids but seems to have died down. There were some crazy things going around a couple of months ago, man. Maybe the new guy has got them going in one direction. Just verifying that it wasn’t a rumor. For what it’s worth… uncle is close with the kid and thinks he should stay at RV. Said someone wasn’t happy with how RV has done things past year…..don’t know if that was kid or the dad. Next time I see him I’ll ask about it, but Id bet they stay.

  37. Graham has lived in the weight room and will be very strong on the line of scrimmage again. I think Graham will be a more physical ball club than Bluefield and that will be the difference in the Bluefield game. Graham man-handled Bluefield at the line of scrimmage last season and I don't see that changing much this year. Graham will also be very strong at the linebacker position and will have speed at the corners. I think the Isabelle kid will be a special talent at Linebacker before all is said and done. Usually the defense is ahead of the offense early on and I think Graham's defense returns a lot of talent. Ordinarily I lean towards Bluefield, because they usually have the edge in speed and talent. Graham is super focused and despite losing 3 outstanding players, they return a ton of talent. Clements looks a bit bigger and stronger at RB. Connor Roberts and Omarri Hill will be terrors on that D-Line.

  41. My kind-of biased opinion. To be the man, you’ve gotta beat the man. Graham is the man on the block until someone knocks the G-Men off. They return a healthy compliment of players, both in terms of size and speed, from last year’s team. The questions there: (1) Can Meadows the Younger succeed at the QB position and (2) Can Graham find someone to compliment Clements in the backfield? Graham improves throughout the season like few others. However, Graham does tend to play a little haggard early on. Beware Week 2. The 2nd/3rd spots may well be decided in Week 1 when Virginia High visits Tazewell. There’s tons of speed all over the field. Poku and Thomas the Younger. Harris and McDonald. Line play will be the question. I’ve got Richlands slotted 4th. However, Richlands does have the best kicker in the SWD by far in Isaiah Bandy. That’ll keep them in games and make them a viable threat as they seek to replace some key pieces at QB and along the lines. Marion looks like 5th for now. There is some talent coming up, and a new coaching staff should change the culture there. I think the dividends are a couple years off, though. A couple Tazewell players to watch: (1) Cassius Harris. He’s well within striking distance of the all-time VHSL reception record (84 away). Given that he set the all-time single season record last year, presuming he stays healthy, expect that to fall. (2) Carter Creasy. In my mind, the best QB in Region 2D right now. He was 13 yards shy of 3000 in his freshman season, and that’s also a pace that would obliterate the VHSL all-time passing record. With the talent he has returning, he may make an assault on the single season record also, presuming he stays healthy.

  42. All 5 return from last year, and there are 3 newcomers who will push for playing time from Day 1. It’ll be a competent unit.

  47. I think it was a good move on Tazewell's part. Allen has ties to the Carroll and Galax areas. So it worked out best for both Tazewell and Allen. It seems to me that Tazewell is on the up right now and kids are having fun and wanting to play. Plus Tazewell has a great group of assistants right now and that makes all the difference in the world.
