  1. And Gate City had A numbers for several years opting instead to play AA before dropping down.
  2. I hope you don't go through life with such shoddy research. You don't happen to work MSN do ya? Lol
  3. Looks like the warriors stumbled over the block.....and fell. 69-59
  4. So the refs were calling ghost penalties?
  5. It's amazing what having a coach that gives a darn and loves the players will do....

    Guess Mance will have to wait....

    Gc vs hurley

    I agree as I had this conversation with someone just the other day. The GC program has been affected all the way down through LL. Once that happens it's hard to get those kids back as they now have other interests. It's not an overnight solution and folks need to be patient. I think GC will have more wins this season but they do have a long ways to go before relevance is reached.
  8. Yes. Very proud of the team stepping up in the face of adversity. Hopefully they will stay highly motivated.
  9. Mac had 18 vs Syracuse today.
  10. While I'm not an Akers fan, it's amazing what you can do when you don't fumble 5-9 times....
  11. Congrats on the win. Good to see the players and coaches getting to celebrate.

    Springs. Cove. Gc

    And because of this you will see football decline even more. Not just at GC or in SWVA. The risk of concussions and the media attention it has gotten are worrying parents, and rightly so. And football is pointed out as the culprit not the other sports.
  13. I won't disagree that the talent is down. But, it's not 1-9 down. Plus, with better coaches, kids playing elsewhere or not at all could help immensely if they came back. GC football really isn't a quick fix right now. Going back into LL it may take a few years after a coaching change.
  14. It's not basketball that's having a negative effect on the program. Several kids either not playing or transferred. The problem lies within the program at the top.
  15. Abingdon either scored more, or held VHS to less, or a combination of the two?
  16. I'm seriously doubting GC can get 2 wins. Heard 3 players quit this week and would be willing to bet there will be more. The entire system from LL up is in disarray.
  17. IMO, it won't get better any time soon either. Boone does have a good team, but GC got outgained what? 411 yards? There are already several kids not playing who could greatly help this team and the players we have now are the ones who are playing because they love football regardless of who is coaching them. Just wait until they are discouraged enough to quit playing. I don't think most fans realize yet just how bad it is behind the scenes, but they will.
  18. Akers can recruit these kids to FB til the cows come home and unless he makes it fun to play for him they won't. Akers has to sell his program. I respect the kids playing FB now while the program is down. They play because they love GCHS football. As you say, kids like Ervin/McClung would be difference makers in FB. But you can't blame them for not wanting to especially with them being recruited fairly high in BB.

    Graham @ Gate City

    Moved the ball at will but couldn't score. Of course, TO's played a role, but not being able to score has to be concerning. Granted, this was a meaningless glorified scrimmage. I'd go with a safe bet 5-5 season. With the numbers GC has out they are in deep trouble if the injury bug hits hard.
  20. I suppose today told the tale of him coming to GC if he were in school or not.

    James Mitchell...

    Thinking I read on another board that he has a sibling at UGA.
  22. Gate City also has to stop losing some of their better athletes to other schools. There aren't many that are lost but as was stated above, sometimes it only takes a couple of talented kids to make a difference at a lower classification. And we can talk about kids playing only one sport but at times it's a matter of not liking a coach or the coach not getting kids interested in playing the sport they coach.
  23. I'm calling bull on this. I've known Scotty for nearly 30 years and I have never heard him cuss once. Did he get angry? Of course, wouldn't you if one of your players was getting fouled like that and the offending players coach didn't have enough class to get him to the bench and tell him to settle down? And I doubt Scotty wanted to "fight" anyone. He's one of the most laid back persons around and if he gets to the fighting point, well, it's probably gonna happen. lol
