  1. I miss March Madness & MLB but other than that, nothing. If HS football is canceled in the fall, I may need medicated to cope.
  2. Xayvion was fun to watch during basketball season. Brody looked like he’d slimmed down. I bet he’ll be a lot better this fall. I hope we get the chance to see them play.
  3. No high school football will make me cry 😭 ! I mean football is basically life.
  4. I seriously doubt anything will happen after that as far as spring sports. Football coaches will be chomping at the bit to get started. I bet they’re going crazy as it is but they’re all in the same boat so I guess that’s plus. Hopefully, our local boys are putting in time on their own to stay in shape.
  5. I think you are mistaken on this one buddy but we’ll see.
  6. He was, you’re correct. He will be the next DC at Richlands.
  7. You probably have more "insight" than me. I'm sure it will be known soon enough. Which three is he rumored to keep?
  8. https://wvva.com/2020/03/26/thad-wells-named-richlands-head-football-coach/
  9. I heard he was most likely bringing in some of his own and keeping a couple Richlands people. But you know...just rumors.
  10. Had Devon Johnson not been plagued by injury I feel like he could have made a good run in NFL and possibly still have been here today. Rest easy ~ gone too soon.
  11. Kansas has closed for the remainder of the year. My guess isi that is the first of many states to go that route.
  12. Word on Front Street in Richlands, Davis & Wells were two finalists and decision will be "official" at March 26th meeting. Wells has acquired a rental. I know this is all speculation but one simply doesn't rent a house unless one is relocating. We'll definitely know soon though. Best wishes to whichever one gets it. Thankful something has kept football page a little active since it's normally dull during the winter months.
  13. 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.
  14. Good luck Lady Tigers! Hope y'all bring it back to SWVA!
  15. I think they're doing second interviews this week. I'm not sure who got second interviews but I'm sure it's just a formality to make sure i's are dotted & t's are crossed before officially offering Wells the position.
  16. If I were the mother, I know what my next step would be $$$$$$
  17. 9 total I believe were interviewed, maybe four or five of those current assistants and none were Mike Compton & Thad Wells was among them. You may know more specifics than me. I'm getting secondhand info., Lol. Yes, I'd say you're right sooner than later.
  18. Heard they held interviews today. I'm still hearing Wells is likely HC and bringing some people with him, won't keep more than three current assistants. I guess we'll find out soon enough.
  19. Bland's AD is the assistant principal.
  20. I don’t know about most schools. I know the Graham AD isn’t a coach to my knowledge. Someone else might have more knowledge than me about how the majority of schools handle the AD position. I would also think salary schedule for different positions is on the Tazewell County website or if not, should be.
  21. Typically, the AD has several periods unencumbered to attend to AD related duties. Technically, they're getting a salary just like any other teacher with the same number years experience to teach half as many classes plus get AD stipend. Not a bad deal really but I guess it evens out because they have to be at home sporting events after hours.
  22. They definitely do not and I'm.not sure the boosters do either.
  23. George Wythe Girls over Galax. I think the GW/Honaker game will be at Pulaski Co. HS. Will boys play there also?
  24. I wasn't there but I guarantee they weren't as bad as the crew the other night when Union & GC played.
