    I agree with you there. What has made Richlands so hard to beat over the years the the elite level of defense they play. Mance was very good at taking away your best player or play and making you win with option number 2. Just about everyone is the area has gone to at least some version of the spread because its all a numbers game and it gives you a chance to win in places if you have lesser athletes and a qb that can distribute the ball and run a little. I would say any coach under the age of 40 is going to run some sort of spread concept. Richlands is going to run what ever the new coach knows and what ever fits the players they have. If the Webb kid is there in the spring leaving him solo while you try to run the power I or split back veer would be the biggest waste of talent I have ever seen.

    I would say most of the southwest district would agree with that statement...

    Mance news

    I heard he is getting north 80,000 to teach and coach at the new school and when you you add on his VA retirement he is going to clear 130k I agree with you that I wouldnt pass that up if you teach and coach wise is about 2-4 grand less than Tazewell. Im not sure what coaching stipends are but its usually 2,400 plus a 1/4 month for assistance if you teach and 4 or 5 grand plus a 1/2 month if you are teaching. but I am sure some schools have a booster club that can push that number up some to get a better hire

    Just watched some highlights of Mooresville from last season... He has some cats down there for sure not that Richlands doesnt have good athletes for the area but it looks like he is able to run what ever he wants on both side of the ball and has the kids to do it. On top of the pay in North Carolina being a minimum of $10,000 more than any school in SWVA makes it hard to believe anyone would make the move back. Money talks and that why the area has lost 2 coached to NC the last 2 years.
  6. The blocking scheme they used looks like a zone concept but the backfield action looks like the trap Giles likes to run with the buck sweep fake. They might score on the play if they actually trap instead of using the zone scheme but that is just my opinion I love a good trap play. I read somewhere that they got they formation from watching old Notre Dame film from the 40's but I can only imagine Marty Smith was loosing his mind while he was watching this. @Hokiebird7 sorry about the Giles county thing. I just thought that was the name of the school.
  7. Any body else notice the the old Giles county single wing last night in the super bowl?
  8. Adkins and webb on the same team... those poor poor defenses in the southwest district... it wouldnt surprise me one bit if that kid was wearing a different helmet next year with the old ball coach leaving the ridge.
  9. Wise seems to be the most complete team coming back. Graham will be younger this year than in the past but they had a pretty good jv team so if they grow up you have to throw their name in the hat. Richlands will make the play offs and then who knows the Webb kid may emerge as the best player in the region then. Ridgeview currently has the best player in the region if he doesnt run off to IMG and if the new coach can use him as a decoy to create big plays down the field then they have the opportunity to make a run. I know these are all region D teams but I dont want to speak on teams I dont know much about.
  10. a lot of it have to do with putting 7 guys in the box and playing man from 15 yards against 10 personnel. You can rack up 200 yards easy if your qb and throw a hitch or quick screen
  11. Mark Palmer would be an interesting hire for sure. He has had a lot of success as of late at PH but I remember some of the bad teams they have had over there too. I wonder what he would do with that kind of talent on a roster..
  12. 1. Wise- if they only one kid AND they dont let success get go to their head a continue to work then I would give they will have to 1 seed 2. Ridgeview- if they can keep Atkins from running off to IMG then they will be at the top and most like lose at home 3. Graham- Graduated a ton of good seniors that have played had played a lot in 2 long playoff runs but just like Chilhowie this year all those young kids got an extra year of practice because of play off practice IMO that is like a red shirt and it helps a lot 4-6- Richlands, Union, Tazewell- not in any certain order but these guys will probably hold down these spots Richlands and Union will because they are Richlands and Union they are well coached they have a system that works and they have kids that buy in. I am not 100% sure what Tazewell has coming back but I know they werent bad even with a ton of guys missing. They will build on a good season as long as their best players dont jump ship to Richlands or Graham. 7 Gate City- could be the the group before but I dont know what they have coming back. I know they do have a great staff as long as they hold on to that continue to improve then they could get back to the GC of old in the next few years 8-10 VA High, Battle, Marion - VA high has one of the best players in the region but has nothing around him. Battle and Marion will be working on year 2 with new coaches. Their season rides on can these young head coaches get their players and staff to buy into their philosophies now that they have a full off season to do so. 11-12 Lee and Lebanon I really do hope both programs can have more success next year and improve and add some more balance to the region over all but until I see it they will stay down here. side note Parents that think they know better than their kids coaches and have never played at the next level or coached above pee wee need to just try it one year and see how easy it is...
  13. I think consolidation is the best chance for this area with Riverheads on their run I mean how good would Marion and chilhowie consolidation been 2 seasons ago
  14. I think its an interesting match up for sure. Central had a good plan to stop Atkins but Graham isnt line up and run it down your throat team. They have other weapons out side of Lester even though he is the best. Even though Graham has those monsters at tackles that are pretty weak in the middle of there o line IMO. Central should be able to take advantage of that. its hard to run trap when the d lineman beats the puller. Now can they tackle Lester? I have no idea. On Offense Central has to play keep away. I agree with you here that you counters and eye candy historically have killed Graham in the past and that is something Central does very well. This Graham team may be better than last year. I am interested to see what happens over the next few weeks

    that whole situation was just dumb. why would you want to play at Saltville and risk running into a sink hole when you could play at a college field.
