    TJ Rasnick if not for cancer he most likely would’ve ended as Tazewell’s all time leading rusher and would’ve had a good chance of making a run at the state record for most soccer goals

    I've always been such a sports fan,and I never would have in a million years thought I'd say this,but while this pandemic is rough,it's actually been in some ways a blessing to me. It's given me time to set aside worldly matters (other than work of course),and focus on my faith and my family. It's made me realize what matters most and really just how trivial sports are when you compare them. My relationships have strengthened,and I've enjoyed and absorbed the meaningful conversations that we should have been having all along.

    Congrats to Coach Wells. It’s always a special opportunity to be able to go home and lead the program you played for. Although your time in Mooresville was brief, the adversity you led our team and community through last season, with the loss of one of our warriors, we couldn’t thank you enough! Nothing but love and respect to you coach. Best wishes to you and your family up there. You’ll always be considered a part of the Blue Devil family

    In no way am I a Gate City fan but what John Marshall did should make them ineligible to compete in the VHSL. An AAU coach should not be allowed to to lead that and a high school team in my opinion. It creates an unfair advantage by blatantly recruiting players to create a super team.

    I'd rather play hard and get beat than to have a trophy handed to me. Just my 2 cents. Proud of the GC kids! Edited to say ..... it's no fault of the other schools and athletes. It is what it is. They all had great seasons.

    I don't think the problem is that they dropped down. The problem is their coach has access to an unfair advantage and used that to load a team up of kids that definitely don't live in the area. He's apart of the team loaded va aau program and has connections with those players. Some of those guys that played definitely don't live in inter-richmond limits. I know Scotty knew how it was gonna play out on the court way before the game was even played so I don't think he was upset about getting spanked. We've gotten spanked in the Arby's Classic by way worse so that's not the gripe. As he said the TSSAA has done things to prevent this exact situation. He was fine till John Marshalls coach basically told on himself in the press conference lol

    Fair enough. But when you don’t have a dedicated thread for the girls, then this can happen. FWIW, as imbalanced as the boys’ 2A tourney is in favor of the East, the girls’ tourney is just as strongly in favor of the West. Some fantastic girls’ athletics on this end of the state.

    I get that. Just pointing out, I agree with your assessment. It’s a shame because at any other juncture of the game, a foul would have been called on either one of two players. End game situations shouldn’t be treated differently.

    I missed the NCAA Tournament but thats it. I dont watch baseball or NASCAR. My interest in any sport outside of NCAA and High School football has been dwindling for the past few years. The National Anthem issues with the NFL were the beginning of it, football was my escape from the real world and that was invaded by bs. I still watch the Cowboys when they're on but other than than I watched parts of maybe 3 NFL games last season and the Superbowl. I did watch a lot of college football and ive been fortunate enough to watch more high school football in the past 3-4 years than I ever have, nothing better than traveling around SWVA eating hotdogs and watching some high school football. I hope something we as a culture take away from this is that we refocus on whats important and find other interests. Ive been sketching, something I haven't done in years, and depending on how things go I may end up reading more.

    Spring 2020 'CV19' Impact/Changes

    I said last month that I think we will still be social distancing and have something similar to what we’re currently in as we head into 2021. Until they find a viable vaccine that can be mass produced — this isn’t going to get better. And I don’t think they will have one until this time next year at the earliest. Hot spots will continue to pop up. We’re staring down the very real position that hundreds of thousands of Americans don’t live through this.

    I feel sort of bad for 2A losers. I mean if the Governor had been a little more timely with his declaration we could have had another set of co-champions. The Gate City girls can tout they are the true champions! They proved themselves on the court. I guarantee the co-champions would have preferred to win outright too. I know this is serious especially for elderly and those with weakened immune systems other health issues but have mercy. The media has made the panic a 100 times worse.

    Along with other inner-city Richmond schools, JM has lost a lot of enrollment in recent years. But they didn’t lose anything on the basketball court. JM will likely win handily. Regardless, Gate City has exceeded most expectations this season. They should be very proud of what this group has accomplished.

    Gate City just reloads on the basketball court. Though no sane person would predict them to beat John Marshall, making it back to the state championship game after losing legitimate D1 prospects in back-to-back years is astounding.

    My opinion is as long as there is time left on the clock, a foul is a foul and it should be called. I get you don’t want to have a ref decide a game but rules are rules. This was obviously a foul and should have been called.

    I can tell you with much authority that Gate City has turned down multiple transfers just in the last five years! People are going to hate you for being successful, I was in sales for 19 years and won every sales award my company (companies) ever had and people just hate you for success. When Gate City was Single A, they were Single A attendance wise. There was no fudging the numbers! It sounds like Gate City pissed in Stan's Cheerios. But just for Stan the number of the day is 28!

    Word on Front Street in Richlands, Davis & Wells were two finalists and decision will be "official" at March 26th meeting. Wells has acquired a rental. I know this is all speculation but one simply doesn't rent a house unless one is relocating. We'll definitely know soon though. Best wishes to whichever one gets it. Thankful something has kept football page a little active since it's normally dull during the winter months.

    Opinions? Foul or no foul?

    The game is on YouTube, just search Radford vs wise central. I watched some of it and based on how physical it was the whole game the no call was pretty consistent on how they called the parts I seen. Central was very physical off the ball on Cormany and hardly ever was called for a foul. One guy was running through screens and maybe one foul was called on him. A still picture can make it look worse then what it really is. The live feed didn’t look all that bad but like I said it played into how the game was called.

    Opinions? Foul or no foul?

    Officials are often instructed to “let the players decide it,” but by swallowing their whistle actually decide the game even more so. A foul should be a foul depending on the way the game has been called from the first quarter on. There’s a lot of subjectivity to what a foul is between officials, but by crunch time it should be established what is going to be called and what isn’t.

    Opinions? Foul or no foul?

    The Ref that was underneath the basket was on the other side., 2nd official was standing infront of Centrals bench and the 3rd was on the opposite side and he was the one that waived the basket off at the end of the game. I've seen 2 different videos one from Twitter and then the angle from which these pictures are taken and Hayes gets the shot off and then u hear the buzzer sound. But I have no doubt that the 3rd official was looking at the lights on the backboard and waived it off. But in High School basketball you go by the horn not the lights cause no high school around has the lights on the backboard.

    They are a 2A school, they've been playing up for quite a few years because all of their historic rivalries are in higher classes. But they've never done well, especially in football. So, stop complaining about a team that is playing in their correct division. And I can't wait until the kick Radford and Gate City's asses...everyone else is playing for second place...just sayin'...
