    TJ was 6-5 270 when he wanted to be he was unblockable. Yes, Troy Hodge would have to be on an All Maryville Team as well as Andy Long, Brett McBrayer, Jeff Fuchs, Tommy Johnson (maybe the best back), Jimmy Huffstetler, Spradlin, Ronnie Irwin (if they were gonna run the option), who was #24 when Spradlin played? i can't remember his name but he was a goodin too. David Reed, Buster Smith, There's a lineman that played in the late 70's early 80's that wore 50 i believe and he wrestled also, he was an animal he alo played LB-again i'm having brain cramps.
    There have been a lot of great murvil players throughout the years-i'm glad this thread got started-people should realize that we've had great players for a long, long time not just since the 90's!!!!!!!!


    i forgot to thank you for the compliment about the best team not to win the state-i played on that team-we lost a heartbreaker to marion co. 14-13 in the semi's-we didn't have Troy et TJ was hobbled with an ankle injury-

    #24 was Ricky Loope. He was an outstanding RB and Safety.

    #50 was Rick Armfield. Armfield was 6' 200lbs but had the best technique I ever seen. He was strong and quick.

    TJ Miles had a brother named Dan. Dan Miles would hit you.

    Some other outstanding Maryville players in the 70s and early 80s were

    QB. Tommy Beaver,Mike Phillips,Ronnie Irwin

    RB. David Reed,Tommy Johnson,Tony Fox,Buster Smith,Ricky Maples,Donnie Hodge,Troy Hodge

    WR. Willie Nelson,Curtis Middleton

    OL. Rick Armfield,David and Mark Talley,Jeff Horton,TJ Miles,Steve Olivera,Randy Walker,Chuck Anderson

    DL. Jeff Moose Evans,Mike Casteel,Johnny Hutton,Greg Casteel,John Ayers,Jeff Fuchs,Stanley Murrell

    LB. Danny Spradlin,Tim Arnold,Ray Arnold,Richard Lowe,Jimmy Huffstettler,Scott Justice,Louis Moore

    DB. David Olive,John Olive,Tim Phillips,Mike Click

    Kickers. Ryan Gerhts, Matback and his loaded boot. I can't remember the kicker for the 1976 team. He was real good.

    Maryville has some really good players in those years. I know I left some off. Just couldn't think of their names.

    the td at the end of the 1st half et the missed PAT were killers-we kept fumbling once we got inside the twenty-man i wish we coulda been at full strenth for that game-we had a jr. on that team that had not fumbled since peewees et he fumbled i think 3 times-Troy didn't get to play-he rode in an RV down to Marion et was on crutches on the sideline-our TE blew out Troy's knee in the Alcoa game-it was a shame!!! have you seen his son play for Alcoa? talk about good bloodlines-Troy is his daddy et his mom was a state champion sprinter for Alcoa in the 80's.
    murvil's recent success has softened the pain of that defeat-it's something that i still think about-i'm sure the defeat by Marshall co. in the championship game kinda sticks with you, too

    One kid I really liked a lot that you don't hear alot about because he played during that period of time when Maryville wasn't as dominating ... Brad Hatcher. He went on to be a real good player for Ken Sparks at CN. The original "one old coach" can tell you some stories about Brad.

    He was a real animal at UT Ron....I think that alone precludes him form the list. Thats me though...my brother and sister were TJ's age. I always wondered about him...mentally. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

    Carl Stewart
    RBMichael Potter FB (he didnt play it, but would make an excellent one)
    Brent Burnette QB (Cade Thompson/Jason Phillips 2nd string)
    Aaron Douglas TE (wasnt our current principal a TE?)
    Tyler and/or Ryan Maples WR/DB/PR
    Danny Spradlin LB (Played for UT & Dallas Cowboys)
    Chuck Prugh OL
    Nick Black OL
    Tanner Caylor LB
    Dwight Wood DE
    Dee Arrington LB
    Drew Galyon DE
    Donnie Amburn, Alan Law or Tommy Beaver athlete
    Willie Nelson WR (Wilson said he's the best athlete he's ever coached...period.)
    Gary Tucker DL
    Any of the Talleys (Jon, Paul, David, they were all good linemen)
    Any of the Clements (need I say more?)
    Any of the Smiths (that says it all)
    Most of the Phillips (joking about "most") /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />
    OL - Chase Anderson
    OL - Chuck Prugh
    OL - Brandon Waters

    The Marshall Co. game does still stick with me. I feel like our game with you guys was the state championship. We were spent both emotionally and physically for the next week. Too many times the best two teams play in the semis. Yep.. Troy's kid is for real.
    Luckily, I coached at Marion during our state titles in the 90's. That softened it a bit for me, but will always remember the '85 loss.
