  1. Provided we have a season, how do the standings look in football and basketball this year? Early projections on how everyone finishes? M7 Football 1. Ridgeview 2. Central 3. Abingdon 4. Union 5. Gate City 6. Lee 7. John Battle M7 Basketball 1. Union 2. Abingdon 3. Lee 4. Gate City 5. Ridgeview 6. Central 7. John Battle Lets year from everyone else.
  2. So how would an All Time Scott County team from 1990 to present day do against other all time teams out there? Maximum 15 players. If you can make a better team, then it’s a beast. If you count up the total points and rebounds these guys accumulated over their careers, the titans would be tremendous If Scott County had a consolidated high school, quite a few of these guys would have played together A day like that just might not be that far off with the way the enrollments are right now. If that happens, SW Va better hold on for a crazy ride G. 6’1. Mac McClung - GC 2000+ puts G. 6’3. Stacy Ervin - TS 2000+ F 6’5. Zac Ervin - GC 2000+ F. 6’9. Josh Shoemaker - GC F. 6’5. Jeremy Houseright - GC Bench G 6’2. Bradley Dean - GC 2000+ G 6’2. Jason Bishop - RC G 6’1. Chris Peters - GC G 6’5. Mark Dockery - TS F 6’7. Andy Arnold - GC F 6’4. Tony McDonald - GC F 6’5. Chad Beasley - GC F 6’5. Justin Seaver - GC F 6’4 Austen Arnold - GC F 6’7. Tyler Webb - TS
  3. I have heard from different coaches that Spotswood, Cave Spring, Northside among others will be in Class 2. Anyone have a projected look at what Class 2 looks like. I have seen Class 1 with Graham, Lebanon, Radford all down. I have been wanting to see Class 2 projections. If it were to go to four classes, Gate City. 652 TSHS. 187 RCHS. 206 Totals: 1014. 9-11 Class projections 720-750?? I would think that if Scott County loses anymore students they would not be far from a consolidation somewhere and they would still be Group 2. They wouldn’t be with today’s enrollment but maybe later on in a few years. Even with two schools they would for sure still be in Group 2. Only thing is which two schools do you combine? if it’s TS and RC definitely still Group 1! Any of the others with GC and they are still group 2.
  4. The hire should cool the rivalry? Anyone that we might know?
  5. The virus has thrown a lot of things out of whack. Will be hard to have things go like before right now. What kind of format will we see take place? Will teams in football play a limited schedule and then have top 2 team in each district go on to a region semi and final and then play state semis and finals? Lots of things are going to be different this year for sure. What is everyone hearing out there for school and for sports in your county?
  6. Congratulations to all the locals who have made the Single A All State teams. I haven’t seen AA yet. IMO Bradley Dean from Gate City deserves at least a share of the Player Of The Year. Any guy that can carry a team to another state championship appearance and go for 32 against the state champs need at least a share. If Robertson can get a share of it with Ervin and Ervin only go as far as the final four then Dean needs to share it with whoever from John Marshall IMO. Anyone agree or disagree leave it in the comments below.
  7. I watched the last play. The ball sits in his hands at 0.0 before he got it off. I wanted to see for myself. I ran it back like 20 times to make sure and the ball was in his hands at 0.0. If you want to see it, it’s on YouTube Actually all of Radford’s games are on YouTube. Kind of crazy they would put them up there but whatever floats your boat I guess. As for the fouls that may or may not have been missed at the end of the game, how many missed shots at the basket were they? How many offensive boards did a team get and score on that shouldn’t have been got? It’s easy to say what happened at the end of the game determined the end but if the team or teams had done their job on other things during the game then what happened at the end might not have mattered.
  8. So here is basically what that is saying. To keep from traveling to Region C, Blue Devil fans need to pull for Central to beat Radford at their desired locale on Friday so that we both can play each other for a fifth time here. When it comes to postseason play, Region C does it fairly well. No one has district tournaments. All the teams make it no matter what. The odds of meeting someone for a fifth time go down. Maybe three times at most. With the way it was this year you would probably have matchups like this: 1. Gate City vs 16. Bye 8. Lebanon vs 9. Ridgeview 4. Richlands vs 13 Bye 5. Union vs Battle 2. Graham vs 15. Bye 7. Virginia High vs 10. Marion 3. Central vs 14. Bye 6. Lee vs 11. Tazewell Might work out the same... might not May not be a viable solution would be a different avenue to try though. Wouldn’t have to play tournaments for seeding. Use the regular season as the base for points.
  9. Came early for this one. Glad me and the kids did though did or we would not have got a seat. All I have to say is that GC had a 6th Man with them tonight that I had not heard in quite some time. My kids thought they were at a rock concert when the students went crazy during intros! They were jumping and bouncing yelling at me why it wasn’t like this all the time! Then they yelled, “We love basketball!” I think I may have yelled and bounced with them after that. For three quarters, after the initial shock of Centrals run wore off and GC began fighting their way back, the crowd fought with them! It was, at times, an out of body experience. The student body was so lit from the floor bleachers to the back row bleachers at top in the intros that it was even hard to hear the starting lineups. That rocks! With support like this from here on out, I honestly can see this GC team going quite a ways down the road because you could tell everyone in that gym was so lit the players just kept fighting harder and harder and harder. If you didn’t get goosebumps during the starting lineups, you had to be either sick, dead or in the bathroom doing business because the crowd and most definitely the GC Student Body showed up and showed out tonight as to who is by far the absolute best student body in this part of the state. God help any of you guys down the road if you have to face that student body yelling, chanting and screaming going against you in playing the Devils. Again! Huge kudos to the GC Student Body!
  10. Great article! Have a question out of curiosity. Asking for a friend. With all the news about people taking new jobs etc., are there any rules about people coaching in one county in Virginia while teaching in another? Any info you can help me with is helpful.
  11. We have had our kids in Scott County from Hawkins for years. Let’s look at the numbers. Bloomingdale / Sullivan North to Gate City HS - 12 to 14 minute drive at 7 - 8 mile drive. Bloomingdale / Sullivan North to West Ridge HS - 18 to 20 minute drive at 12 - 14 mile drive. Where would you want your kid driving if it were to start snowing and school let out? People also tend to forget that Gate City is in a unique position unlike many schools in the area... or their own county. All schools around here except DB. The unique situation is that, like DB, Gate City is situated about 5 miles from the state line. People are saying, “Keep your kids on your side. We don’t want them over here with our kids.” Seriously how damn selfish do you have to be? You whine and you cry about how you feel teachers are underpaid, how you need better schools. Then when it looks like someone is proposing an idea of charging students to come to school here you throw parties and give congratulations to everyone because now the school will just belong to the people in the county and not any “outsiders”. Here is the problem that has long plagued the citizens of Scott County and its people for years. A sense of Elitism. A sense of entitlement. Ok. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Since you don’t want Tennessee students coming to be educated by your teachers I am going to write the President of Eastman Chemical Company and tell him to fire every single worker from Virginia because they are taking away jobs from all the people who would be great workers in East Tennessee. We don’t need that backwoods hillbilly trash working over here. Go find your own jobs. Don’t want to educate the kids from over here that love coming to be apart of you and your county? Then keep your tails out of our workforce. And don’t say, “Ohhh but there aren’t any jobs!” Well then go be like a search party and go find some. That or we can just charge you to work for us. We can take it out of your pay. Yes sir that sounds like a plan to me! So all you elitists in Scott County. Just go ahead and show us why you guys are so awesome and you don’t need us. You need us probably a little more than some of our kids need you. Just saying. Im a proud Blue Devil but Scott County will never consolidate into one school ever for two reasons. 1). The county is pretty large and it’s geography might better be suited for two high schools instead of one. 2). No one can stand the elitist butthole attitudes that a lot of the people have over there. It’s GC gets this and GC gets that. People at TS and RC if the roles were reversed I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be saying anything about it if they were the school closest to the state line. But that’s the thing. What you are ignorant about you don’t know about.
  12. I’m a Blue Devil fan but I admit. When I read this, I felt totally sorry for the Warrior team “who was very disappointing”. Well, all the Warrior players who didn’t play to win that is “except Isaiah who played to win”. I’m sure they really all showed up and said “you know I really want to go out there and play like %#*% tonight. How about we all go do that? But let’s not tell Isaiah. We want him to look better than all of us like his dad wants him to every night.” What kind of a coach distinguishes one player over the whole team? A Central team of course. I have heard that the Hayes kid looks way more like a player than Isaiah ever does at times. Mainly because he is just mentally tougher. When times get tough for Isaiah he will look over at the bench looking for help. Hayes just fights and plays through the toughness. If that’s the case I know who to take every second. And if the Central team was that disappointing, except Isaiah, maybe they need to just all go sit down and let the prophet TJ McAmis and his son from on high who sits at his right hand see how he does on the court by himself. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be a pretty picture. Unless he is changing water bottles into wine and making the Central crowd drunk (which is a real possibility the way they act), that’s probably the only miracle you would see. Heard he has a daughter coming up on the JV that is a pretty good player as well. What’s next on his bucket list trying to take Robin Dotson’s position as Warriors girls coach after his son graduates so he can tell the paper how bad all the other girls are on her team and how they don’t play with heart and passion like his kid? Stay tumed!
  13. Big games tonight! Who do you say gets some big wins and makes a push for the top of the heap?
  14. Funny you use WWE in your response. Central has earned their “cheap” reputation by their play on the court the past few years. You can definitely bet security will be heavy when Wise visits GC this season and for good reason. GC fans will get redneck if there is even a perception that they are out to hurt our players. I would be in GC a couple hours early for this one. .
  15. Wise is the favorite, GC is going to be GC, Union may be an annual contender and Abingdon is going to be improved as well as Union just got by them by one but Lee is officially the Cinderella of the district. Never thought I would say those words. Ridgeview May do something as well. Who knows? But for the Trojans? The battle is lost this year. I think it’s safe to say that with the exception of John Battle , teams better show up or get surprised in a big way. M7 is no joke this year.
