    UNION QB ???

    This is the problem with high school sports right now, too much specialization. If you have a good athlete, and they enjoy playing multiple sports, that need to play. Instead, you get a coach in his or her ear saying focus on this and you will be great, or don't play that you might get hurt. Any school in SWVA, I don't care where it is and what size, is only drawing from a limited number of kids anyway, if you have 700 kids, you might draw from half or less of that. So when you take a kid who is a stud out of the mix, it can really hurt a program. No sense in coaches ever discouraging a kid from playing a sport, you are only hurting your school and his team mates.

    All good preachers scream places and names. They also take audible gasps at the end of the place or name they scream. Preacher points go through the roof with those two qualities.

    2019 College BB FINAL FOUR

    @UVAObserver @Bearcat Bob My families (both growing up and current) have had an unusual Tech-UVA mindset. Different members of the family had their favorite school but never pulled against the other team. I'm a Hokie first but still pull for the Hoos as they represent the Commonwealth and Conference. My earliest memory of college basketball was watching the '76 ACC Tourney with my dad. I remember us being so excited about UVA's unlikely run which ended with Virginia shocking the tobacco road elites by claiming the title. That winter I pretended to be Wally Walker with a makeshift nerf hoop in my house. The Ralph years were particularly special but the title proved elusive . We all watched more special teams come and go but a natty seemed agonizingly out of reach. And now, 43 years after a young Terry Holland won UVA's first ACC Tourney, Tony Bennett has now brought home the ultimate trophy. Congratulations, Hoos fans! Banners hang forever.

    AOA

    Whether you deem that officiating has gotten worse or better (most would argue at the upper levels even it has gotten much worse in recent years) adjusting the structure of the AOA was the proper thing to do. Its probably the best thing for the schools also in reality.

    AOA

    I know a few who sign up for both associations up that way and we have some from Christiansburg who will work the AOA in one sport and Roanoke in another. Its odd. packfan, I cant remember the full details but basically there could have been some tax laws/workplace issues the way it was setup if I remember correctly dealing with employment status. No other association in the state was overseen by the principals of the schools they covered. Those changes that were made had no bearing on the quality of officiating directly. There wasnt enough done then, nor now to try and bring people in who want do the job, much less do it well. I would love to see a lot of changes but I never see the money coming together to make things happen like a grading system. Football and Basketball have had a lot of instructional opportunities in recent years and more would be nice but they dont just fall into peoples laps either in this part of the world. Due to some folks who have been able to make the jump from the AOA and other local associations to Power 5 jobs and Group of 5 gigs they have done a good job of giving back. I hope it continues and grows for a long time. I will say, when it comes to state appointments for games the AOA tends to draw a large share for the divisions we represent and receive rather good marks for the officials who work those games.

    Early Season Impressions

    I give Lebanon all the credit in the world. I have watched Buchanan and Steele grow in the game of baseball since they were 11 years old, playing with Jr. Viking Baseball to Crusaders Baseball, and now to Elite Prime in Atlanta. Both are fantastic young players with great futures. As a team, Lebanon has a lot to prove to use the word "DOMINANT and FANTASTIC". Central is a very young team, and they aren't near as good as they were last year, due to attrition, but they will be playing well probably in the end. Big Win over Union last night. If you have watched the Region 2A baseball season the last few years, it isn't loaded in talent or dominant teams. Our Region usually can pose well down the road. Va High has showed consistency in lineup for past few years, which makes them a stronger team. Not just 1 dominant pitcher.

    AOA

    I know several guys locally who left the AOA for the Roanoke Association. They work the Three Rivers, Blue Ridge and River Ridge most often. My brief experience with the AOA left me with the distinct impression, it’s disorganized chaos. My cousin attempted to leave the Roanoke Association a couple years ago to help out the AOA since he lives in Galax. His first 4 games were at Lebanon, Castlewood, Grundy and Lee. Hell of a haul from Galax for a guy with a full time job! He went back to the Roanoke Association after 4 games.

    Early Season Impressions

    Lebanon hasn’t played Science Hill or VHS. 1 pitcher doesn’t make a team. They have 2 division 1 sophomores that have committed and the only team of substance they have truly played is Tennessee High! Lebanon has played battle 3 times for 8 of their wins and have gotten all they have wanted from them. They have played Grundy, tazewell and central and beat them all in run rule fashion. They are a good team, but I would like to see their record with a VA High schedule!

    Early Season Impressions

    Who has Lebanon played? Until they play a true quality opponent, how can you say dominate? They are good with Buchanan on the mound, but until they face a team with a good lineup top to bottom it is hard to say they will dominate. TN High exposed that! There isn't a dominant team in 2A to this point!

    AOA

    Lack of umpires and refs might be the biggest issue out there. The last few years the number of refs seems to be dropping and it looks like they aren't getting many young talent out there. I'm not sure what they make per game or event but it must not be very lucrative to invest the time to do that. Many do it because they love the game. It certainly is a tough job at times I would bet. I still am thankful for those that take up the calling and do their very best to officiate the game properly. Hats off to you guys who go out and do the job many complain about.

    Wojo would be an unmitigated disaster at VT. There’s a reason Marquette fans are virtually doing Riverdance at the notion of him leaving. VT would be much better served by a Ryan Odom or Wes Miller sort of coach.

    It's definitely not a first choice. More like the year's supply of Rice A Roni that the losers on Jeopardy used to get as a consolation prize. It boils down to Union not being able to find opponents that aren't PowerPoint black holes, and I don't understand. They've been successful, but it's not like they win every game 50-0. I don't know about this go around, but, starting about 6 years ago, dozens of teams, at some point, have flat out refused to play. One quote from a team for 13-14 was, "we can get beat by someone closer," in a remark about the travel time. The 15-16 cycle was supposed to be the first and last, but Letcher wanted to keep playing and there wasn't really anyone to take their place. You have to be at least 2 TDs better than your KY opponent to compensate for the refs. So far, that's not been a problem. I'm more concerned with Paintsville because, unlike Letcher, they're actually good.

    Coach Church did many great things for the Hurley football program, not only as a head coach, but as an assistant for years. This rebel hopes he’s involved in the program in some way for the upcoming season and seasons beyond. Huge thank you to everything Coach Church has given us and the players. We, as a community, will support whatever he chooses do to in future, but again we sure hope he’s back in the program in some degree.
