  1. The #9 recruit in VA and #25 RB in the 2021 class in the country according to 24/7 and Rivals just transferred to his third high school in four years. Hasn’t stopped him from receiving 26 offers with more coming in every day.

    I'm trying to get my boss to let me telecommute from Pinehurst! You'll know if he ever goes for it because I will disappear from this and every other site. Message boards will take too much time away from the golf course.

    The last time I was in Myrtle, we were watching Jim Furyk win his only major championship at a golf themed restaurant. That should be a good indication of how long it's been sine I was in Myrtle. It was supposed to be a buddies golf trip but a coworker invited a random guy we didn't know. The guy was an absolute POS! At this restaurant, the guy had way too much to drink, fell through the plate glass window in front of the restaurant and wound up in jail. The coworker who invited him, tried to help but ended up talking himself into jail as well. The rest of us left them down there and came home. Haven't spoken to either of them since. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes! I'm not much of a "beach" person and neither is my wife. When I do go toward the beach, it's generally Edisto, Hilton Head or St. Simons.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. I have grown to respect your opinion as well. NC has definitely positioned themselves better than VA in recent years in virtually every aspect. Statewide growth has proven that over the past decade. VA population has stagnated at 0.4% while N.C. is growing at nearly 8.5% a year. Politics aside, VA has been its own worst enemy.

    Dixon could possibly leave Galax at some point but it won't be for money. At least not money for his wallet. Money being put into a program may sway him. As far as recruiting, Galax has always had kids from out of city / out of state. Nobody cared until Dixon started winning football games!
  6. It’s an opinion jackass! If you don’t like mine, throw yours up for comment.

    You not a fan of Dirty Myrtle?
  8. Region C Boys 1. Auburn 2. George Wythe 3. Bland 4. Parry McClure 5. Narrows Auburn is the clear favorite but I can't count out PM. The Pioneer is such a week district, it's hard to tell how they will stack up against Auburn, GW and Bland. Girls 1. George Wythe / Galax 3. Rural Retreat 4. Covington 5. Eastern Montgomery GW and Galax are the only real choices here. Galax started the season 3-5 with two freshmen in the starting lineup and a first year head coach. They have gone 11-1 since with the only loss coming at Radford in a really tight game. This streak also includes an 11-point win over GW. Galax senior Shea Foxx is the schools all time leading scorer and will play next season at UVA-Wise. Her sister is a freshman who stands 6'-2" tall and can play all 5 positions on the floor with ease. She is shooting over 35% from the three point line! When she plays within herself, she is the best player on the floor every night. She is a legitimate D1 prospect and has already been on an unofficial visit to Old Dominion.

    Ironically, Vance never won a state title with Brand as head coach. Vance lost 9-7 in the 2018 state championship game to Wake Forest, which was Brand's last game at Vance. Vance won the 2019 4AA state championship 24-3 over Leesville Road (Raleigh) with former Indian River head coach Glenwood Ferebee as head coach. Ferebee may be the best high school football coach in Virginia or North Carolina. In 6 years as a head coach, he has won 60 games in two absolute monster districts. Irmo finished 3-7 in 2019 and wasn't competitive in many of them and finished the season with only 37 players. Which is quite shocking for a school like Irmo. They lost four of those seven games by at least 4 TD's. I have a lifelong friend coaching basketball in Columbia, SC. He says the natives are restless already.

    My kids are both teenagers. My wife and I both felt the way you do 13 years ago when we moved them back to Galax. Now, we regret that decision to some degree because of the lack of opportunities and resources compared to other areas. Galax is a quality school system that has been managed exceptionally well but can't compete financially with the school district my brothers kids attend in Cornelius, NC. The opportunities and resources my niece and nephews are exposed to have us second guessing our decision 13 years ago. They have an embarrassment of riches, including attending high school classes taught by Davidson University professors. As proud as I am to be from SWVA, it just doesn't compare to other areas in terms of opportunities, resources and community investment. Although I will contend, I am not a fan of the North Carolina state symbol................the orange traffic barrel!

    Mooresville plays in arguably the toughest conference in North Carolina but if he keeps building the way he has over the past two seasons, he will be just fine. A program from the I-Meck Conference has won the 4AA state championship every season but 3 since 2009! Mooresville is in Class 4A so they play a ridiculously difficult conference schedule against several perennial power 4AA programs. Last season the I-Meck had 3 teams reach the 4AA final 8 and 2 others reach the 4A final 8, including Mooresville. Vance won the state championship in 4AA out of that conference last season. Mooresville played them tougher than anyone else all season, losing 20-14.
  13. I disagree to an extent. A couple of school board member as educators, sure. But having diversity on a school board eliminates tunnel vision and allows for an outside perspective. It's difficult to think outside the box while isolating yourselves inside a box. Our local school board features a lawyer, a veterinarian, a retired Naval Officer, a retired Biology teacher and an Industrial Designer. To use your analogy, you wouldn't want 5 dentists overseeing your dental office either. Who is managing the business? Payroll? Taxes? EOE compliance? Sustainability? Growth? Experience can't be taught but is essential to growth. Experience is something that must be earned. Why not use the diverse experience of your community to help the next generation? Surrounding yourself with too much of the same thing limits potential.

    Thad Wells has facilities in Mooresville that nobody in SWVA can match. I can't imagine he would give those up but I could be wrong. Athletic boosters pay for every athlete to work out here........... https://jetperformancelabs.com/
  15. It's a shame, really. But oh, so true!
