  3. I took a few pictures. One of them is at the bottom of the Mount View spreadsheet on www.fourseasonsfootball.com .
  4. I went by the new stadium today. It is coming along well. The field turf is down and looks great. Bleachers are up and look great. Press box has not been started and dressing rooms either. Looks like it is going to be a great place to play.
  5. http://hof.ehc.edu/members/j-leonard-mauck/ Yes it is.
  6. I did my best to find them all. If I missed one let me know. Only goes back to 1920. Undefeated AND untied.

  7. It was one of the greatest comebacks ever but it really wasn't a great game or well played game. The year before in 2003 when Bluefield beat Weir in double overtime was a much better game and much better played by both teams.
  8. Heritage lost to Spotsylvania 16-7. It was Spotsylvania's third championship of the 90's. They also beat Salem in 1991 31-27 in Salem and Amherst 26-0 at home in 1994.
  9. I would have to say that the Gate City - Graham regular season game in 1997 that went to three OT's was the best overall game I have seen. Great players. Great coaching. Drama. Momentum swings. It was just a great game to watch and I was glad Bluefield wasn't playing cause I would have had a heart attack.
  10. I just really enjoy the challenge. I actually did not know about this and was not contacted. Tim Hayes pointed it out to me. The interesting thing is that while I know a lot about Virginia High School football and her history I know much more about WV high school football history. One because I have been researching WV much longer and Two) there is much less to learn because of the smaller population. I still have a long ways to go before I can claim to be an expert or THE AUTHORITY on Virginia high school football. If I had to do one thing over in hindsight I would do Virginia research first because when I started Marshall Johnson was still alive. By the time I really got into Virginia he had passed and all I have is his scattered notes and notebooks. BTW. There are literally dozens of notebooks by Marshall Johnson containing Virginia High School basketball history and scores. I know where they are.

  12. Really bored these days so I have been digging deep into Bristol papers. I found several "undocumented" games for both Tennessee High and Virginia High including 4 games between Tenn and Va High that I did not know about.
  13. If your child's math or science teacher left without calling a meeting would you still be upset?
  14. Yes. I miss baseball on TV.
