    The freshman is Tommy Jones. He is a special “once a generation” athlete. He’s not quite ready to be the starter yet. Senior Mason Cox will start but I’m sure Jones will see some action.

    The size conversation reminds me of an interview Lord Botetourt head coach Jamie Harless did a few weeks ago on one of the Roanoke stations. 
    "Couple of the best linemen I ever coached in my life weighed 165 pounds. It's 'cause they'd run through your mouth and come out your rear end!"

    This isn’t intended to be inflammatory. The revised ADM figures do not include the senior class of any school. Riverheads new ADM is 357 yet the previous ADM (including the senior class) was 443. It’s a mathematical improbability for the freshman to junior classes to average 119 students while the senior class has just 86. So, their senior classes are routinely 30% smaller than the remaining grade levels?
    These statistical improbabilities are why suspicions have grown over the years concerning Riverheads. Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire!

    I was told last night, Radford's 2022 listed ADM figure of 562 is actually their 9-12 number. VHSL printed the wrong number. Their 9-11 number is closer to 440.
    Apparently, this is the case for a few schools. VHSL will revise and update after appeals are heard.

    Most schools in SWVA encourage kids to play other sports. I don't understand the "you have to specialize" mentality but some definitely have it. Patrick Mahomes was 1st team all state in 3 sports and had multiple D1 scholarship offers in all 3. Mahomes and Tom Brady were both drafted by MLB teams. 
     
    I think most people in SWVA recognize the attitude you speak of or have encountered it at some point. It's easily recognizable. I was umpiring a 13U softball tournament about 15 years ago with an older gentleman. The Pulaski coach was pretty young, maybe around 30. He didn't like the fact his girls were getting beaten by approximately 20 runs by a team from North Carolina. He walked up to home plate between innings while Charlie was sweeping off the plate. As Charlie stood up and turned, not knowing anyone was behind him, the coach punched Charlie square in the face. Not only did the coach get arrested, he got the snot beaten out of him by a 65 year old retired professional boxer turned softball umpire. It was quite funny!!!

    Auburn is experiencing a "perfect storm" according to an Montgomery County administrator.
    A head coach that wasn't well liked by the entire community.  Covid kept numbers lower than expected. A talented group of athletes simply not interested in risking their baseball and basketball seasons due to football injury. They should be coming out of this "perfect storm" according to the conversation I had. Covid is not nearly the issue it was a year or two ago. The coach is no longer there and the new coach seems to be very well liked. The group of kids that won multiple state championships in baseball and basketball are coming to the end of their high school careers.

    Most people have figured out by now, never pay attention to what Galax does during 7-on-7 or scrimmages. The kids playing are rarely starters and hardly ever playing their true position (starter or not). 7-on-7 and scrimmages are used explicitly for building depth and finding out what other positions players can play in case of injury. 
    I remember several years ago, Galax struggled mightily in the benefit game against a very bad Floyd team. Galax won but the final score was something like 38-35. Message board geniuses were out in force predicting the demise of the Galax program. The run was over according to the keyboard warriors. What anyone in attendance saw, was a Galax team that never played a single member of the core of its lineup. It was mostly the previous season's JV kids with a few upperclassmen needing experience and reps mixed in. The next two weeks, Galax beat Glenvar 31-18 and Radford 48-3.

    Galax had 74 my daughters 8th grade year, which is impressive for a high school with roughly 350 students. A new band director for my daughters freshman year resulted in numbers falling and continuing to fall every year. Last year, my daughter's junior year, the band had 16 kids. They lost 58 kids in 3 years!
    We have a new band director this year. He has rekindled excitement around a once-proud marching band. They have a little north of 40 students for band camp the past two weeks.
