  1. For Tazewell, Gavin Nunley most likely.. Jared Mullins will be a very capable backup. But, most coaches would probably say that all positions are up for grabs when practice starts. I just hope to see a few games this year. (Even, if it's in the spring).
  2. Graham's enrollment hasn't seen any sharp increases or decreases...been anywhere from about 480 to 530 pretty consistently for the past 10 years or so. Tazewell has dropped significantly, I think it was around 510 this past year and Richlands is around 600, but has consistently dropped the past 10 years or so.
  3. The halftime speech of each game could motivate the kids to "do it for the Gipper".
  4. A High school football coach would not make enough to make a living just being the football coach. He would have to work somewhere else also. The AD job is on an administrative pay scale, typically AD's teach half a day and do the A.D. job half a day. A few year's back the head football coach got about $9,000 on top of their regular pay to coach football. Not sure what it is now, I'm sure it's posted somewhere on the county website. If he resigned those positions, he should only be paid as the football coach. ($9,000 a few years back). Perhaps he is giving up the A.D. position and taking a teaching position (a pretty big pay cut), if that's the case, it may not be until the next board meeting that you see him approved as a teacher in his "new" position. Lot of shuffling of personnel in the summertime, people come and go, switch schools, move away, etc...
  5. This is true. You do not have to work in the school system to be the head football coach.
  6. Having lived in Richmond and now South-West Virginia, I would take that as a compliment.
  7. Here's my question. The state has come out now and said that it will be the local school division's decision on how and when to re-open their schools, with guidance from the state. I wonder if the same applies to sports. In other words, can a school play sports with other school divisions, regardless of what the VHSL recommends? Probably not a good idea to go against recommendations, would open up a can of worms if something were to happen, but I'm curious. Bottom line is to keep the kids safe, I totally understand that. That should be a school systems first priority, the safety of the kids.
  8. VHSL met today with no decisions made on Fall Sports. However, there seems to be some traction for having fall sports in early spring, if at all. https://www.wsls.com/sports/2020/06/25/vhsl-puts-fall-sports-seasons-on-hold/?outputType=amp&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=snd&utm_content=scores&__twitter_impression=true
  9. Lifting and conditioning has been suspended in Mercer Co. due to recent outbreaks. They will re-evaluate on July 8th. It seems more and more likely to me that we will not see fall sports in WV or VA this year.
  10. Rumors of some kids from VA side going to WV side up this way.
  11. Statement from the VHSL... For Immediate Release June 22, 2020 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The VHSL Executive Committee will meet in special session Thursday, June 25 to discuss the reopening of schools under the Governor’s “Return to School” plan and those options relating to fall sports and academic activities. The meeting will also include budget issues. The executive committee cannot create and release a working fall schedule and calendar for sports and activities until further guidelines are released. “It’s important to note that if nothing changes between today and Thursday, definitive answers on Fall sports will be determined later. The Governor’s “Return to School Plan” outlines an action plan for Phase I, II, and III but has no specific guidelines for athletics and extracurricular activities,” said VHSL Executive Director Dr. John W. “Billy” Haun. “The executive committee will discuss at length the challenges, including health, safety, and financial considerations, that would have to be resolved before implementing any schedule options for a fall sports season. “At this point we have no idea when we will enter Phase III,” continued Haun. “It would not be reasonable to prepare a fall schedule for each sport and activity without knowing the parameters and possible restrictions.”
  12. I have heard a couple of rumors about Richlands football already, but I haven't heard that one yet. Also, if this is true, nobody really knows yet if and when there will be a football season, it would be hard to make that kind of decision at this point. If he really wants to go to UVA, I don't see what one season of High School Football would matter anyway. Right now, I am more of I'll believe it when I see it. I've heard rumblings of players from the VA side going to play in WV or TN if we don't have a season. A few names have been thrown out there, but I won't put any names on this board, because it's just hearsay, but it wouldn't be a surprise to me that if Virginia doesn't play and WV and TN play, that there will be more than a few kids that will play elsewhere, especially if they think they can improve their chances to get a scholarship
  13. Hearing rumblings of the VHSL considering moving football to the spring. May just bet the rumor mill starting up.
  14. Maybe schools could set up a way to stream their games and people could pay to view them if allowed to play. I would certainly pay to support the teams. Maybe a season pass to watch the games with a one time fee. The schools will need to come up with a way to generate revenue, if attendance is limited.
  15. I'm sure the paperwork will be submitted and Gov. Ralphie the other day said that Southwest Virginia may be able to get back to business as usual sooner than the rest of the state (including schools). I'm not sure how that will translate to sports. Will some schools be playing and others not?? The VHSL has a lot of plans, anywhere from a 4 game season to a full season. Who knows, but if the kids aren't allowed in the schools, it will definitely not happen.
