  1. Galax has exactly 2 playoff wins in school history without Mark Dixon as head coach. That’s a lot to replace. The talent has always been there. Results will be determined by how that talent (and the rest of the community) buys-in to a new head coach.
  2. Galax 2/27 v Bland 3/6 v Grayson 3/13 v George Wythe 3/19 @ Carroll 3/27 @ Auburn 4/2 @ Fort Chiswell For anyone interested in following Mark Dixon's progress at Pulaski. Pulaski 2/22 @ Cave Spring 2/27 v Hidden Valley 3/5 @ Christiansburg 3/12 v Blacksburg 3/26 v Patrick Henry 4/2 @ Salem
  3. Not trying to poke holes but your numbers aren't accurate for the Mount Rogers Health District. Grayson County and Carroll County have had numerous positive cases among faculty, staff as well as students since the beginning of school. Galax City Public Schools had a public meeting last Thursday to walk parents through the in-person school process. Galax has been "virtual only" since school began September 8th. They will begin in-person classes October 7th. I bring that up to provide documented proof of my statements. Dr. Karen Shelton (Mount Rogers Health District Director) addressed the crowd on behalf of the Galax City Public Schools both in-person and through Facebook Live (in which my wife and I watched). During her speech, she confirmed the cases in Carroll and Grayson as totaling 18 school students since August 13. That's 18 not counting faculty and staff of each respective school district. That information can be found in the linked Galax Gazette article. https://www.galaxgazette.com/content/galax-begin-person-classes

  5. Thought some may be interested to know. Andrew's paternal great-grandmother is my dad's sister. We used to beat up on Chad and my brother when they were kids. Wouldn't attempt it today!
  6. It would be reasonable to suggest Carroll has played down since leaving the New River District but they were certainly not playing down while a member of the NRD. Carroll wasn't even the largest school in the NRD at any point during the 25 years they were a member. Blacksburg and Christiansburg were both larger. Radford was significantly larger in those days as well, although I don't believe they were ever quite as large as Carroll. Both Dublin and Pulaski were also members of the NRD prior to consolidation into Pulaski County. Giles, Galax and Narrows played up to a AA level while members of the NRD before dropping to single A and moving over to the MED in 1988. At some point in the 80's, Floyd moved over to the MED, where they remained until the inception of the Three River District. Grayson has only been in existence since 1988 when Fries and Independence consolidated. No Grayson County school was ever a member of the NRD. The Carroll schedule my freshman year was Cave Spring, Patrick, Galax, GW, Radford, Christiansburg, Floyd, Chilhowie, Giles, Blacksburg and Lee (playoffs). Chilhowie was a last minute change because both Carroll and Chilhowie were left without games when Fieldale-Collinsville dropped Carroll because of the formation of Magna Vista the prior year. Chilhowie lost a game when Saltville and RB Worthy consolidated. The schedule my sophomore year was Patrick, Galax, Grayson, William Byrd, Christiansburg, Floyd, Radford, GW, Blacksburg, Grundy, Blacksburg (playoffs). Carroll, Galax and Grayson are border rivalries. The gate proceeds for all three schools would be far too much to give up. I don't think it's fair to suggest they played "down" during the years in the NRD!
  7. Careful guys, that's a bit of a Rocky Gap you're treading!
  8. I suspected Giles would win on appeal. They are in a very similar position as Fort Chiswell and Grayson County were in recent years.
  9. It will be interesting to see how he transitions. I think it's fair to point out, Galax has played Northside far tougher than anyone expected over the past five seasons. And that was with a roster of fewer than 30 kids. He won't be playing the "numbers game" like he had to at Galax. I will say this, Dixon is as excited about what he has at Pulaski as i have ever seen him. And the man isn't prone to hyperbole. Take it for what it's worth!
  10. Given the title of the thread is "Playoff Predictions," I will make the bold (maybe) prediction that Pulaski will make a deep run! Dixon won't take long getting the most out of the talent level Pulaski can generate from year to year. I plan on being there when/if they play Salem.
  11. Galax should be solid in terms of returning talent even though they lost a 2,000 yard RB, a 1,500 yard WR, and four 4-year starters from the line. They have a lot of returning talent and a group of kids coming from JV who haven't experienced a loss since sandlot. The big question will be the loss of Dixon and everything that entails. Dixon failed to reach the state semifinals twice in his career. Those are some lofty expectations and huge shoes to fill!
  12. You’re still under the impression I’m on one “side” or the other. I’m simply pointing out the hypocrisy in your own postings. As I said a few weeks ago, you’re too fekking stupid to realize you’re being trolled!
  13. In the few months you've been a member here, you've gone from nonsense about "leftists" letting criminals out of jail early because of fear of COVID-19 spread within the correctional system to a sitting governor putting random citizens in jail for not following COVID-19 restrictions. Reading your posts are a complete mindf*ck!
  14. Galax released a full page statement yesterday afternoon pretty much condemning the way VDH and local media outlets (even called WSLS out by name) for the way cases are being reported. VDH reported Galax had "spiked" 32 cases overnight Tuesday/Wednesday. WSLS ran a piece suggesting a "second wave" may be hitting Galax just as schools are starting back. Galax City Manager and Galax City Council drafted the letter that reads in part......... "Galax has had only 8 new cases of Civid-19 since August 1, and only 2 in the last 10 days. There are only two active cases in Galax but VDH does not release active/recovery data on Covid-19. Thirty-two new cases were reported in Galax today on the VDH website. These are backlogged cases from an outside lab that does not report directly to VDH, and are cases that occurred earlier in the summer." I tried to post the letter itself but my "attachment" allotment is full. If someone could be so kind as to instruct me on how to delete old attachments, it would be greatly appreciated.
  15. I completely missed that Galax had released a revised dashboard yesterday. We are down to 2 active cases. For anyone with Facebook, this can be found on the Galax Police Department Facebook page. I don't have Facebook so, I'm relying on my wife to forward the information. I'm doing well, hope you are!
