    I had to privilege of seeing a spring practice just the other day over at Fulton.  I was very impressed with their skill players especially #1 the QB.  He looks better and better every time I see him.  #4 looks really good too and someone said he is only going to be a 10th grader.  Looks like they have changed some players positions too.   I saw some 30 and 40 numbers down with the lineman so maybe they will be alright there after all.  I don't get on here much anymore due to my health but since I was at Tennova the other day I got to watch.  Anyone else have any thoughts?

    Their QB will give them a chance to win pretty much every time out.  He's pretty special.  

     

    I never doubt Rob Black and that staff.  They will have a great shot winning that region and advancing deep in the playoff in their first year in 5A.  Fulton still has a ton of quality athletes.

    HTV  .. if they do that this year they will have had done a heck of a coaching job for sure .. think they have a couple of soph or Jr OL and DL lineman  .. aside from that .. I think the rest of the OL and DL will come from 3rd and 4th string FB's or something like that ..I too saw some 30 and 40 numbers with the line at practice .. do agree they have some athletes at Qb, RB and WR and DB but just got NO linemen at all ... hope those backup FB's can be at least serviceable ... guess the Offense will be QB getting the ball out to playmakers ASAP

    If Fulton gets better on the offensive and defensive line then they should have no problem winning that region. They always have the skill players, and Malone should give them a chance in every game. Looking forward to following the falcons this year

    Talked to a man this morning and he had been told Fulton has lost another lineman to transfer.  Something about he has moved out west somewhere and now will have to sit out a year possibly. So they have moved more low numbers to high numbers I'm told.  With as much skills guys they have with Malone it won't do a bit of good without a line.  Hopefully some of these young men will buy into playing line and everything will work out.  This guy even said he wouldn't be surprised if Fulton had a losing record this year based on the line.  How does this happen to a school that just recently won 3 championships in a row, 6 in 10 years and 2 runner-ups?  I'm told the 8th grade team is stacked heavy with 8th graders that the high school needs though.  Thoughts?

    Heard the same thing ... so the 2 guys that were coming back that were the 2 best and the 2 that had played at all are now at other schools .. the latest from mom's job being moved I heard and the other from a lineman who wants to play TE .. so that leaves 0 returning linemen with any experience ... honestly I have no idea if they will even have 5 linemen total ... like I said there may be some 170 pounders playing on the OL and DL ... never seen a team so void of OL and DL  .. have great skill guys but if you have noone to block then ??? Moving to 5A they will be playing a bunch of teams with 50- 80 players   .. I counted about 26 or 27 players on field  ..

    Normally does.  Rob and his staff do a terrific job with that program.
