  1. The BIGGER SCHOOL rule does not really stand up, D B gut thumped by GREENVILLE,Union played Betsy on even terms,Appo played and beat bigger schools. Here is a quote from my former coach and former D B head coach GRAHAM CLARK: X's and O's will match up on every great program but the jimmy and joes who come off the bench to fill your holes in the 4th quarter will be the difference. He also compared the OLD LPD schools who won state to being as good as if not better than those teams who won state there, but numbers count.It is easier to find 22 great players in a school of 3000 than it is in a school of 700. Greenville had a great run so did Appo, as well as PV,APPY ,GILES,GRETNA AND OTHERS. D B has under achieved for sure but thats the game.
  2. this may be best for the young man,lots of off the field/court problems. Union friends/team mates not helping this kid any, best of luck, he has too much talent to go down the wrong path
  3. Jones or Gibson, both are gun slingers but somehow Brody G will light a fire under the QB position as he adds one more running back in the backfield , but also can throw.Union will run the fullhouse almost every play , untill the cb gets caught looking in the backfield and boom, over the top to yet another JENKINS SPEEDSTER
  4. was sexton a senior? and is most of the line back
  5. Nothing wrong with that, I think even Burrell Paye kinda wanted his players in the gym and not on the field, JIMMY MITCHELL and CATBIRD were exceptions during the state title run. Ihave seen him play both sports , and I would say that he has a better shot at a football offer than basketball(he is very good in both)When you compare the % of high school who get offers from div 1 schools they are this: baseball 2.2%, basketball 1.0% and football 2.8%, so as you can see its a numbers game. The kid has great size and arm strength , and you cant coach height. Good luck
  6. I know ANDYS dad is on this board so maybe he can speak about the reason he has decided to drop football.We have to remember that JAMES MITCHELL was considered a basketball star to be when he was younger, I just think that ANDY had the arm and ability to be the best QB at UNION ever, but now we will never know.........
  7. The QB position has become a issue with UNION,I was told that ANDY JONES has decided not to play football, instead just to focus on BASKETBALL.I guess the AAU coaches told him that would serve him best.ANDY is a very talented kid and I think his AAU coach maybe thinking of his summer league team and not the kids best interest.Now BRODY GIBSON gets the nod,he is a gun-slinger too, but I have heard we will be HUGE in the backfield and very fast at wideout.
  8. Wonder if Rhoads would apply? he may want to run with the big dogs in AA , he has the talent for "D" and who knows who he may pull back from UNION
  9. I have read that LEE HIGH may go back to separate schools again for whatever reason. If they were to go to a LEE EAST (JONESVILLE) and a LEE WEST(PENN. GAP) could they step down to single A ???and if they did maybe field one team as single A, or would they have to still compete as AA. I see a new school closer to BIG STONE GAP stop the bleeding to UNION and a new school on the far end of JONESVILLE and picking up kids from TOMMY WALKER.There are lots of kids that may come from KEOKEE that attend UNION that could switch.
  10. 1974 PV STATE CHAMPS, lost in the Finals when BARRY HAMLER was a senior.BARRY HAMLER coached both college and high school in NORTH CAROLINA, , JERRY MYERS coached both at TOMMY WALKER andLEE HIGH.There is talent in big stone gap and appy, I think coach MOORE needs a very good asst. coach and any of these men could and would help if asked.look up burrells pearls, the big stone bombers,gosh darn it if they had three pointers back then!!!!!
  11. SOUR GRAPES,if if's and but's were candy and nuts , nobody would be hungry for CHRISTMAS......and if UNION WOULD HAVE...ECT....ECT...ECT. GMEN ARE THE CHAMPIONS AND BLUEFIELD ARE NOT PERIOD!!!!QUIT CRYING
  12. The kids they have coming back , they may repeat
  14. Ihave watched a few HUDL videos on GOOCHLAND, the offence reminds you some of UNION last year because they line up and say "here we come , now stop us", the "D"has some weak spots in the passing game and seem to be a step or two slower to the GMEN.GRAHAM will have to out physical them and let your two LINEBACKERS smack them in the mouth some , then let CAM open the "D" up with his arm and his playmakers score from way out.GOOD LUCK GMEN 35-21
