    IMHO, Tazewell had it right in 1986 and should've never changed.

  2. Life has been challenging for a lot of us in these last couple of years. It has brought tears to some, death of loved ones, sickness that took our breath away, but a new year 2023 awaits. It will have challenges, changes and hopefully a lot of blessings as well. These notes are from a message on 11/8/20 from my Pastor. The last 3 years I have listened to messages online due to sickness in my family. I began to take notes of messages and it really has been a comfort to me looking back and sharing with others. "PUT LIFE BACK IN ORDER" (1 Cor. 14:33 and John 6:68) 1 - Reduce your wants and you will live like a King. If you live like a King, you won't complain like a beggar. God doesn't do anything out of confusion, he does all in order. If you multiply your wants you will live like a beggar. A beggar becomes a desperate person. We are all created equal, but don't make our opportunities equal. 2 - Live and love (John 3:16) You have to live love, and you live love by serving. Love isn't about how much it gives to you. If you live and love, you will live joyfully. 3 - Stay around people who inspire you. Bad things are contagious. Don't hang out with people who just give you something, hang out with people who inspire you, not drain you. Choose wisely. If Jesus was contagious, both thieves on the the cross would have caught it. Jesus is inspirational. 4 - Obey his word (Matt 19:20-22) Don't go outside of God to get something. If you do, you will have to live outside of God. 5 - Trust in the process . Just because God has ordained you, don't think God will take you directly to the castle. There will be battles and trials. (1 Sam. 17:13-30) MAY 2023 BE A YEAR THAT KEEPS US ON COURSE, GETS US BACK ON COURSE, BY BEING CONTENT WITH WHAT WE HAVE, SERVING WITH LOVE, GROWING DAILY WITH HEAVENLY MANNA, AND TRUSTING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART BECAUSE WE KNOW HE FIRST LOVED US. Amen

  7. “Everybody is afraid to say it. I’m not,” Vermillion said. “There’s a feeder program going on for Team Loaded. If I’m wrong, I’d like someone to correct me. “I’d like to see where those [John Marshall] kids were born and where they’ve been raised because I’m certain that not all of them live in the John Marshall attendance area. And you can print that.”

  8. Hampton is one I always thought would be cool to have a rivalry with as well. Those folks are something else over there. When they won the state semifinal game in 2022 one of the parents pulled their truck on the field to chain up the goalpost and pull it out of the ground. Its just different.

  9. No one ejected, game just ended. I’m all in for GMen but Graham player clearly responsible for the incident for shoving Tazewell player for no good reason that I could see. Lack of self discipline! Embarrassing…

  10. Anybody notice a common trend on this board? In every season a player from Tazewell is the best player in their sport, yet the TEAM isn't very good.

  11. If O'Quinn stays it will hurt his development. Period. No doubts about it. Maybe he can mitigate that by hitting camps hard but I think he plays sports year round so I'm not so sure he will get the next level development he needs to play at D-1/2. They are going to want to see varying throws and concepts, effective reading of the defense (RV doesn't currently employ 2nd and 3rd reads), hitting the check-downs (RV doesn't have those) and running various offensive schemes. Hell, they have the kid jog to the sideline to get every play. So much for the kid reading defenses. That isn't the HC,OC or scheme that will get you to next level. Just my 2 cents.

  12. I think it would be pretty cool idea to have a crossover with M7 and SWD. 3 team rotation so Graham would play Union Lee and Wise on a 2 year cycle and Tazewell would play Ridgeview Battle and Gate city then they switch. That would keep teams from scheduling weaker 1A schedules non conference

  17. VMI is elite. No offense to the other schools for Beavers, but VMI is just straight up first class and elite in education and academic prowess. To each is their own of course, but VMI is a special place. They are some of the most coveted graduates in the country, especially if they choose to get out of the military after 4 years.

    Bottom line, go where you can get your education paid for and get playing time. D1 is great but it may not always be the best option for the majority of athletes. Let’s be honest, a small percentage will play past college. I think too often, kids and parents get mesmerized by D1 offers. Hopefully, all our local talent end up playing & getting a great education wherever they land. I love seeing our locals succeed no matter what level they play.

    I know a kid from Galax pretty well that is currently sitting on two scholarship offers. Waiting to see how applications to five other schools pan out before making a final decision.

  20. That's what happens when you hire a coach from Carroll County. He was 5-35 at CC.

  21. Honestly wristband is the way to go. You can change numbers every week. You can send a player in with the number, signal it in, hold up numbers, or just yell it out. It takes more time for coaches to make said wrist band but that is the biggest down side. It is a lot better than having 5 coaches just to call your offense!

  22. The more simple they are the easier that are to steal. If they other side has a coach looking at that kind of stuff which I am sure most teams do. Usually you would have a live guy and at least one dummy guy sometimes 2 but now you have 3 coaches just sending in plays for offense you got 2 coaches in the box and at least 2 on defense.. unless you are Union and have 45 "coaches" on the side line you run out of coaches quick

  24. We got plays from the sideline at Appy in peanut football 35 years ago it kills me watching QB running to the sidelines every play I mean how hard can it be to just send play in with a receiver who doesn’t do anything else especially at Union

  25. The RV lunacy was compounded by lining up in spread formations and then not going no-huddle. I'll wager that RV is the only team in the country that "runs" a spread and then brings the QB to the sideline and the OC isn't in the press box to see what the defense is doing. If you are a football schematic guy it will drive you freakin' crazy.

    If you're getting upset over some emoji... you're likely not long for this board. Maybe I'm wrong, but that seems like a pretty tame thing to get upset over.

  28. Stating that a team isn’t that good isn’t really making fun of them but merely an observation. I even gave Graham credit for playing hard against Richlands. Saying they lack skill is just a fact. Good grief, you take this board & comments way too seriously. Unfortunately, the SWD just isn’t up to par as in the past. 7 or 8 years ago, a lot of girls’ teams were competitive. This year with the exception of Richlands & the Trivette girl, the SWD is weak.

    Graham and Northwood girls would be an instant classic... final score would probably be 8-6 in 6 OT's.

  32. I highly recommend retirement. We've been all over the southeast watching games, and when we moved to south Florida it enabled us to catch 2 games a week because some of the schools here share city stadiums, so we wind up with a lot of Thursday games. An added bonus is finding some good hole in the wall restaurants when we go to games, like Dixie Fried Chicken in Belle Glade, which reminds me of the chicken they used to serve at the Patio in Pennington Gap. As for games I'd like to see, the Muck Bowl is still on my list. We could've went this year, but it was a mismatch and Pahokee smoked Glades Central. I'm hoping it'll be more competitive next year.

  33. Good game as the Dogs built a 16 point lead in the 3rd quarter only for Graham to battle back to cut it to a 3 point lead at the start of the 4th. Martinsville pulled away late for the final margin. Graham is going to be a really good team as the year goes on, they just need more court time. After watching the jv and varsity and seeing how much youth they have, the bball program is going to be very good for the foreseeable future at Graham. Good luck to the G-Men and we'll see you in a few weeks in Bluefield.

  34. Graham vs Lord Botetourt. Every year. It would build it’s own rivalry. Southwest Virginia IS 2A in Virginia. But it has teams that can play with higher classification teams in the Roanoke/Central Virginia area. I’d like to see more do like Graham has been doing and venture east to showcase the talent in the SW corner.

  35. Even with OQuinn, there has to be a 21st century passing scheme with 21st century routes, passing sets, and pass blocking schemes on the designed pass plays. Big Stone and Appalachia has football in its DNA. There's just no way possible that since 2010, Union hasn't had a player on its roster that could not throw it for over 1500 yds in a season. So, if you are O'Quinn, can you be sure the offensive look is going to radically change simply because he joins the team? I'm not so sure that it would. He might be walking into a situation where his pass attempts for the season are cut by 50% to 2/3rds compared to his freshmen or sophomore year at RV. It could go the other way as well and the Bears start slinging it around. Hard to tell.
