    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

    hahaha, this is funny

    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.

    Yes. Badly. i miss my NASCAR races. I miss March Madness. I was supposed to be in Charlotte this coming weekend for a Hornets game. No Masters. No Indy 500. No Bristol. No NBA playoffs. No watching Richlands softball repeat. I’m not a big baseball guy, so that’s not much of a loss to me. But if this stretches into football season with no sports then I’m not sure what to do at that point.

    My brother lives in Cornelius. His kids attend Hough. I've been to many, many games over the years. Richlands would be lucky to win more than one I-MECK conference game per season. That's not intended to be a knock on Richlands in any way. It's just the reality of rural small-school football in Virginia versus Charlotte area programs. The I-MECK is easily the toughest conference in North Carolina and my opinion is, tougher than any conference in Virginia as well. There's a reason the head football coach of one of the ten best high school football teams in Virginia (Indian River) left to coach at Vance!

    The state requires an interview period. All qualified candidates must be interviewed. Interviews are not over. Everything right now is just speculation. The board met just 2 days ago, I would guess that the public won't know until at least the next meeting, next month. Unless they hold a special board meeting. To hold a special meeting over a football coach would be unusual. As mentioned before, usually candidates are interviewed at the board office, send a few of their finalist to the school to be interviewed and the school Principal makes a decision and recommends to hire. At least, that's what the process in most districts. Would not at all be surprised if Wells ends up the coach, but need to let the process work itself out. There is no coach until approved at the School Board meeting.

    Some refs just can’t make a call at critical times. I’ve seen a handful of baseball umps who have no trouble calling strike 1 & 2 but will only call strike 3 on a swing and miss.

    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.

    Since I live in Massanutten now, I get to watch East Rock, many Bull Run teams and most of the Valley teams. My 2 cents of the 2A remaining teams: Girls: Luray and Strasburg are good teams, albeit very different styles and personnel. Neither is state championship caliber IMHO. Boys: East Rock is big, shoots lights out and is deep. Nickels is a legit D1 talent. They probably lose to JM Tuesday but I think it will be a much better game than most think. And if it is real close late, I like ERs chances. Tyce McNair is a heckuva guard/leader. If Evick is on, his range is out to the logo (seriously). ER doesn’t have a true center though. They have a bunch of 6’5-6’7 guys but they are slim. If JM pounds it inside, the ER party will be over.

    Sorry sixcat, I misunderstood your last post!!! I agree, I am not saying this would of made Central win the ball game.......but with 2.1 seconds left and if a foul was called......you go to the line for 2 free throws for a chance to try and advance!!! They had other chances during the game to win, but it's a shame that referees swallow their whistles most of the time during a situation like this!!!
