    That’s a great example of coaching by allowing his players the full experience of high school sports. Some high profile coaches , especially in the 2 most profitable sports, still believe that in pressuring kids into focusing just on their sport. Sometimes it’s more about ego than preparation. Coach Dixon is doing it right. He knows his players don’t need 9 months of preparation before game 1. He also knows the benifits of multi sport athletes. Give me a wrestler at nose guard , at linebacker or the interior offensive line. You won’t need to spend hours on tackling drills or footwork with those guys. Give me a SS or a Catcher who wants that QB spot. His mechanics will be ingrained into his brain. Or a Safety that plays centerfield. His ball skills and track down speed will improve faster than anyone hanging around the weight room. A smart coach would know these things, at least one without a ginormous ego.

    Too big a chance that we might get Hamburglared in Bluefield this year to be talking about McDonald's. Haha As far as the band comment goes...I'm not touching that with a 10 ft tuba. 🙂

    I agree! Didn’t even think about that. I’m hearing that they got another freshman RB, Brandon Dowdy I think is his name, they’re saying he’s suppose to be something special. Edit: Correction, Braxton Dowdy.

    Cheap shot by Glenvar on Grahams 2nd string qb gets Graham fired up. First teamers back in and Glenvar ball carriers getting met in the backfield. Isaac Dalton doing an excellent job at Defensive end. Blanket coverage on pass plays. Defense looked on point in their 2nd series. Glenvar did manage 1 completion for about 12 yards in the 10 play series, a quick out. QB scrambled for about 15. under heavy pressure, everything else went backwards in a hurry.

    Adkins will not be sharing carries so I think will he put up monster numbers. His teammate Sproles will be a monster on defense. Brown from Patrick Henry should have a monster year. Whited from Eastside is a threat running and receiving. MLB from Chilhowie is a stud along with Bellamy from Eastside.

    Yes controlled. Holding onto the football and moving the ball in short increments. It was a 3 point game in the 2nd with Richlands scoring on a pass to take the lead only to be nullified by a silly penalty. That was definitely a subpar Richlands team but they scrapped. Anything can change in the course of 6 games. And Richlands definitely has the tougher schedule and they have depth. Those tougher games could deplete their ranks or make them tougher. Graham will have a somewhat tougher task with Union than Central Wise and Tazewell will be improved but what happens when they lose a key player? Where will their heads be at after those games? Will they blow those cupcakes off the ball and get complacent? If Richlands has improved on the defensive side , I wouldn’t count them out at all.

    Pretty accurate...I was looking forward to seeing the RB and DB play from Bluefield as I know they are being recruited/committed to D-I programs. Just didn't see that potential today, however I'm sure they have what it takes. The DE is def has a D-I body and played with great effort, IMO. I should also note that Pulaski County is pretty good and I will bet anyone here a soda pop that Lord Bottletop beats Bluefield by 20!

    Graham starters has some good size and look like football players but the back up didn't look like they had much size....lesters legs is what will carry the g men this year don't think his arm will do it...unless it gets better as the season goes I'm sure it will....

    But it also increases the value of bonus points received from your other opponents. When you play 10 games each bonus point is worth 0.10. When you play 9 games they are worth 0.11. Just a fraction of a difference but enough to put you ahead of another school.

    I don’t think he was saying you personally just an expression which is probably way he intended it. I’ll rephrase for him, a select group of hometown individuals.

    If Bland Co. has to cancel their season, Roanoke Catholic may be getting some phone calls. I know I read that 5 teams on their schedule dropped 11 man football and they're still looking to fill out their schedule. They may be about to get a tour of SWVa A and AA football.

    Richlands isn't in their coverage area. And yes, I realize Knox Powell isn't either, but PJ and Heather said that game was being covered by a Knoxville station and shared with them. Yeah, their choice of Virginia games are puzzling to say the least with the exception of Ridgeview/Union. Volunteer and Cherokee is just a nasty bitter rivalry from what I understand, so that may be why it was chosen?

    Season surprises??

    So like everybody else...I'll start with the home team 1. I feel UNION will go 7-3 or 6-4 but SURPRISED if they go 8-2...But they will have great defense this year, And be battle-tested when playoffs come. 2. GRAHAM should go 9-1 or 10-0 but SURPRISED if they don't win 2A state 3. ABINGDON should win (Mt District) but SURPRISED if they do anything in 3A playoffs 4. Richlands should go 7-3 but SURPRISED if they beat UNION AT THE PARK THIS YEAR...Go BEARS!!!! 5. I feel Gate City, Central, Eastside will all be better this year then last year but SURPRISED if they are not! But I hope all TEAMS In SWVA has a great year...

    Chris Kelly Union

    Exactly BigWinners, I have known and been around Chris since I was very young, he used to join in on our back yard whiffle ball/baseball games, and has supported Appalachia, Powell Valley, and now Union with everything in him!!! I am sure he has done wrong or said some things he shouldn't have said, but everybody in this world has done that, and made things right and moved on. In my high school playing days, I can remember him calling me Mike Piazza, and would say I was one of the bash brothers!! In football, you never had to worry about walking to get water, a towel, or anything from the sidelines. I have reffed 8th grade, JV football, or youth football, and a kid would get hurt, and Chris would come out and ask the kids name and go off to the side and start praying for the kid!!! Everytime I have seen Chris, he will always shake my hand, and before he left he would say I love ya man. To me this is a slap in the face to anybody with a disabled or mentally challenged kid, and is a big @$×+ you, we don't care about you type attitude. The behavior that has been allowed to go on is disrespectful, senseless, and down right shameful. What are we teaching the future generations, that it is okay to treat some with disrespect, and just blame it on boys being boys..........I am far from innocent when it comes to doing disrespectful things as a kid, teenager, but I was taught and raised better than to think it was okay to pick on/humiliate someone with a disability, and was disciplined accordingly. As for Chris supposedly roaming the halls of the school during school hours, I don't know if that is true, and if it is I can understand the administration wanting to stop it, but at 330 he should be welcome to come and volunteer his time and support! He has done it 30+ years and has never asked for anything in return. This whole event disgust me, for Chris, for the community, and the school itself. The things done to Chris, was set aside and overlooked because Chris was willing to forgive and turn the other cheek.......and in the end he is the one who is being punished because he was mistreated. Accountability needs to take place for the actions done by the people who made fun of Chris, and vandlized his property. Everybody take a step back, and put yourself in Chris's shoes or Chris's family's shoes, how would you feel, what would you do?
