  1. Big reason why there's a shortage: $115 per Friday night game ... 3:30-5:30 .. Drive to game (you pay the gas) 5:30-7:00 .. Get dressed, pregame, talk to coaches, go thru all checklists for the game, check equipment 7:00-8:00 .. Kickoff and first half (get screamed and cursed at, run about a mile) 8:00-8:20 .. Halftime (rest, eat a bag of chips and a bottle of water if the school is nice enough to provide it) 8:20-9:30 .. 2nd half (get cursed and screamed at even worse, especially if the game is tight going down the stretch, run another mile) 9:30 -10:00 .. Leave the field with police as security, shower, change clothes, leave the school 10:00-10:15 .. Drive to the closest fast food joint because you're starving 10:15-10:45 .. wait in line and eventually scarf down a dry burger with fries 10:45-12:45 .. Drive home (you once again pay the gas) Hopefully be in bed by 1:30 am .. 3:30 - 12:30 is 9 hours ... $115 for 9 hours equals $12.77 per hour Oh yeah, take off $20 in gas .. $95 for 9 hours equals $10.50 per hour .. (You've also spent $400 on equipment, officials pants, shirts, shoes, flags etc) Any idea what a high school profits on a Friday night game ??? These officials are the guys you gotta have to make that money ... They do it because they love it .. not for the money ... While you are watching your kids play, they are away from their families .. Pay em .. they earn it .. and from what they have to go thru, they deserve it !!!!

  7. C’mon guys. Many 16 yr old kids are also attracted to driving fast, cheap beer, loose girls, and experimenting with dope, but that doesn’t mean we accept it or even encourage it. It’s not worth a win or three in football every year. At least it’s not to me. It was a terrible look for the program, the school, and the system since they failed to do anything as far as I’ve heard. Congrats on the win hairtage. Maybe you beat another misguided program along the way, but I wont be pulling for you anymore.

  9. my thoughts too , Maryville had a great chance to win that Alcoa game . Maryville just needs to cut out mistakes, they still have one of the best RBs to ever play at Maryville. I’ve seen Maryville teams look bad during the season only to come together as a team and play their best ball when it counted . This team needs leaders to step up , Maryville can win every game they have left , but not with the effort and mistakes they had last night . Knocking someone to the ground after the whistle has blown is a totally selfish thing to do , especially for a senior, not caring that it will hurt your team is selfish. Disciplined , unselfish Football has won a lot of Games for Maryville over the last 20 years and it still can today. I am surprised that this coaching staff hasn’t even thought of giving another Qb some meaningful Snaps , Maryville has usually always given the backup Qb meaningful snaps , and I don’t see how that could hurt us this year . Maybe a different look , a different style?

Most Adults just want a Coach that can show the kids a little Discipline ... I was in the Marines , I've heard every Cuss word on the Planet , but I also have enough Discipline to control myself in front of young kids . Preaching Discipline to your kids while having out of Control frothing at the Mouth Cussing fits I'm sure Impresses the young men .

  16. Andrew King the ref that made that horrible call right on television for all of East Tennessee to see shouldn't be allowed to call games like this anymore. He needs to be called out because it's a bad look for Blount County and the whole profession. Send this clown up the road and let him F' up the Sunbright and Jellico game not one of this importance. If your just a neutral fan watching that game last night and saw that your going to all the sudden form an opinion and pull for West just because of this IDIOT. Not his only bad calls this year and that's a fact. The look on Lamar Brown's face was priceless with the announcers pure backlash and the angry mob that hit social media after should be enough to tell this guy to go get a job at Walmart as a greeter where he belongs .

  18. That paper has a new Prep sports person every 6 months, none of them from the area with much knowledge of the local high school sports scene. Don't take anything they write seriously. More times than not they just rewrite a story 5 Star Preps has already done. Gannett killed local high school sports coverage.

  19. If you guys are okay with an outsider offering a comment... Both Alcoa and Maryville have set the bar so high over the years that anything less than perfection in every game has the potential to be viewed as failure. It is unlikely that any other 2 teams in Tennessee will ever have the success these 2 programs have displayed. So someone has to lose and someone has to win, but in the big picture I say both are winners.

  20. Just look at where we were around this time last season. Dade last year wasn't as good as Murphy and NJ wasn't close. Pirates will be just fine need to keep working and get better every week. There's a lot of season left. All I know is I would rather lose a dog fight against a good football team than beat Grundy by 50.

  21. You are absolutely wrong about recruiting by City. Be careful what you accuse other programs of doing, especially when you have no information to back it up and data shows exactly the opposite. 99% of FHS players are “City lifers,” having been with us since Kindergarten or pre-K. Being a “City lifer” is something the students - athletes or not - take great pride in. With all due respect, I’m not saying this as “a guy in the stands.” I’ve been on the City School Board for 20 years. These young people love their school and obviously give their all every week preparing for every game. God has blessed them with many talents, and when these 16 seniors graduate next May, 17 Fayetteville Middle School 8th grade football players will move up as freshmen and begin working to maintain the high standards as FHS student-athletes. (Lots of other talented non-football players will move into FHS as well.) Frankly, no recruiting is necessary at City, and we absolutely do not and would not allow it.

  22. I'm just going to keep it 100, this is easily the worst Murphy team in 16 years talent wise. I hope given all the bluster and bravado in this thread from some that this is way below South Pitt's normal level because a standard Murphy team would absolutely drag the bunch I've saw tonight.

  24. Sounds like instead of complaining on a public forum, you'd offer some help since you know so much about coaching.. or if you want change, run for school board.. Wishing failure onto a program you say you care about isn't a good look, but you do you...

  25. Two games came to mind this weekend. 2014 Huntland and 2017 Waverly. 2014 Huntland, Forrest was favored even though we had 8 kids out. Huntland jumped on us early, down there, and we played catch up the entire game, eventually losing. Z. McClendon had run back a punt right before halftime, and we were within striking distance. But Huntland didn't let up. I think we lost by 10. Awful experience. 2017 Waverly. The RPO was in full effect. Gavin Stanfield broke his step tracker and whatever Forrest did, it was the wrong thing. He threw when they bum rushed him, and he ran if given the slightest space. Forrest fought hard, but lost by a zillion. Also there. Loretto, in 1 season, went from a team who was averaging 6 points a game to one that is going to score between 5 and 7 TD's against everyone they play. I'm a believer. Took me long enough. The region is theirs. Could they slip up? I mean, anything is possible, But this team has a potential track to home field until the quarters. Likely against Riverside. If they beat the Panthers, and Union City is the semi opponent, Loretto D will have a difficult time, but it's not out of the question. Forrest. I'm not even mad. The typical stuff. Turnovers, penalties. This is Coach Eli ball and the first two games had me convinced he was reformed and rehabbed. I still think he is better. But this guy was a D coordinator before he was a head coach and O coordinator. I was disappointed that it took an entire half to adjust. Loretto still bullied Forrest quite a bit even in the 2nd half. These long plays are exhausting to watch and mentally crushing for the kids. That's what is the most disappointing. Being bullied. I've seen Forrest completely overmatched less than a half a dozen times in the last decade. This was the first time it wasn't Marion (2016), Waverly (2017), BGA (2018), Watertown (2018), or Columbia Academy (2018). This was a region game that the entire universe had circled as a Forrest win. For the most important part of the game, the first 15-20 minutes, the Loretto offense vs the Forrest defense looked like Brock Lesnar against Screech from Saved by The Bell. I'm surprised that MMA referee Herb Dean didn't parachute in and wave it off in the 2nd quarter. Forrest is at a fork in the road. Stop talking about injuries and refs and anything else that takes the focus of responsibility off the staff and kids we have. Nothing in life comes without getting hit in the mouth. Loretto hit you in the mouth and figure four'ed you. It's over. Tip your hat and learn from it. A huge challenge is at The Rock in 4 days, and it's a short week. Win against Moore, and your mojo tank starts to refill. Lose, and you're a .500 team with Marion and ER looming, plus a Richland team and a Mount Pleasant team that can also beat you if things fall the wrong way. Couple kids to give props to- #1, #2, #5, #6, #22, #25. HEART. Didn't quit. These guys are your team leaders. That's part of football. The leaders setting the pace this week in practice. Leadership isn't determined by age. It's determined by performance. This season isn't over. Loretto fans, enjoy this team. They are a joy to watch. It's good for the region and 2A also. Wish they didn't RKO my Rockets, but they did. Life goes on.

  28. Not about who is or isn't the Sheriff, who sits where, or what ethnic background the man was...when an officer sworn to honor and protect the Constitution handcuffs an American citizen for spoken words, he needs to be held accountable. I personally hope that it costs him his job, and some cash from his own pocket...too many people view the police as the ultimate authority, and believe that you (or anyone) should just blindly comply with whatever "order" they wish to give you...and I do mean too many on both sides of the badge.

  32. Someone needs to get their facts straight before getting on a public forum and talking about people. Idk about Harper but Troy Calhoun is a police detective and on swat and also coached pee wee football for 10+ years. His son Kobyn is the starting quarterback for TC. He beat out upper class men last year for that spot. He has the best throwing arm the team has had in years. I know for a fact if you had rather speak to his parents instead of hiding behind a computer they’d be more than happy to set you straight. Just stating facts. Saying stupid stuff like this makes you look like a complete idiot!

  33. I will say this....In my time of being around Heritage football i've not seen fans this excited. You can tell they love this coach. I sat right beside the press box and when the many Heritage coaches came out of the press box it looked like a college staff. At least 5 or 6 coaches came out of there. StrongX you sound like a County person that sent your kids to Maryville and you must be perfect and have no skeletons.....but I'lll bet my corvette that you have a handful of stones and live in a glass house. Keep running that yapper and know the Heritage fans including myself could care F'N less!

  36. For what it’s worth, Alcoa schedules who they can schedule. When the typical powerhouses refuse to play by using the old excuse of- “We have nothing to gain from playing Alcoa. If we win, we were supposed to win. If we lose, we got beat by a 3A school” gets old. You can’t have it both ways. These teams run from signing a two year deal, then folks like you want to bang our schedule. Get some of these schools you are thinking to call our athletic director and I’m sure he will try and work something out.

  37. Maybe Mt Juliet should hire a metro coach to really win.. PC coach 2 state championship appearences in 6 years , CR 6A state appearance and semi appearance in 6 years , EN State championship appearence in 3 years..... MT Juliet -0 ... you havent beat a good metro team yet. Yall schedule Glencliff and republic and maplewood though. Have your coach call all 3 and get on the next cycle . Guarenteed 0-3. Yall lost to Hillsboro last year and scored 7 points . CR beat yall last time yall played , and yall will never call PC to play. You just really want some attention. You have so much to say about metro and as many times as your HC has applied for another job nobody is jumping to steal him away.

  42. You're like a little Child , no one from Maryville is Cocky or arrogant like you were a couple years ago when you talked smack all year long only to disappear for a full year because you looked so foolish . Maryville has up and down years just like every team , but the difference is with Maryville even on a down year they are dangerous . Unlike a few of my fellow Maryville fans I'm not ready to jump off a Bridge anytime soon . To be honest I had a few very positive thoughts about the Game last night . Our Defense played much better than they did against Farragut . We buckled down and stopped Alcoa several times and we definitely had a chance to win the Game at the end , a TD and extra point would of had us at 21-20 . Noah Vaughn proved once again that he is one of the best Running Backs to ever play at Maryville high School ... he was the best player on that field last night ... We definitely Blew up at the end of the Game and it wasn't just one player , it was a total team fiasco including the Coaches . Our Coaches have a great record of usually pulling the right strings in situations like this and definitely deserve the benefit of the Doubt and I think we will learn from our mistakes . Being positive about your Football team , especially when it's Maryville high School , doesn't mean you have your head in the sand or don't understand our team might have some weaknesses ... It just means as a Maryville fan we have seen some remarkable comebacks during the last 20 plus years ... to be honest , I haven't thought Maryville was going to lose a game beforehand for over 20 years . In 2010 Alcoa beat us and Maryville went on to win the 6A State Championship that year . Losing to Alcoa is something that nearly every other team in our State would also do ... nothing to be ashamed of . Being a winner isn't just how you react after a win ... being a real Champion is how you react to a loss . A hater like Mjgoldiebear will never understand that as a Maryville fan some of my proudest moments were when we actually lost a game . I've always mentioned how proud it's made me watching our boys run out on the field as a team and proudly hold that second place trophy up in a State Championship game . I've seen other teams react horribly , throwing helmets , not even going to get that trophy . To the Alcoa fans , Congratulations on your great Victory and thanks again for creating another Awesome Chapter in the Maryville Alcoa Rivalry . It truly was a great game and I must say for anyone who wasn't there , the atmosphere before the Game was completely off the Charts ! Standing room only and packed 10 deep in some places , and the Army Golden Knights show was one of the most spectacular scenes I've ever witnessed on that Football field , the members carrying the Alcoa and Maryville flags and then the Game ball was Amazing !!

Your guys may very well run us off the field Friday night but they'll know they've been in a ball game when they wake up Saturday morning lol. I just hope for good weather and a good clean injury-free game.

  45. You might want to come to McClellan road more often. You have never seen 5th and 6th grade kids light up because a high school football player comes to watch them play. Get a scouting report of who will be the future stars from the tackle football games in the end zone on Friday nights. My son wore the blue just like I did and his uncle did. He graduated with multiple kids that their fathers played for USj before it was USJ. In elementary, he had a poster of the USJ quarterback proudly hanging in his room. So do not give me that more passion stuff.
