6 pointsI go through this every week when preparing my show. The amount of programs that don't get their kids stats out there online is AMAZING! I also have a Mr. Football vote, but I use word of mouth as much as anything as a determining factor since I speak to so many Coaches and fans each year. The Stats are either unavailable or only reflect 1/2 of a football game in many instances. I'm not gonna reward a 3-7 team's player who racked up a ton of 4th quarter stats against the other teams two's while dominant team like Whitwell or Cornersville has kids sit out the second half. I really feel the TSSAA should create a committee of media involved STATEWIDE to determine these awards and have no bias to any particular area. Just my two cents.
5 pointsAnother mythical win for D-B. Kudos.
4 pointsHire Shad to oversee the money.
4 pointsCONGRATULATIONS BreadTruck (and all CPA players and faithful followers!) Nobody can say you didn't earn this championship. You beat the two best teams with no doubt as to who the better team was this year. I hope you got that big hug every dad should experience at least once! BT......it was good to "meet" a new friend on here. I don't know if your son plays b-ball, but it sounded like he plays baseball. Maybe we'll get to shake hands and share stories down the road somewhere. I hope all turns out just as The Lord has planned for your son. As for mine.....I'm pretty much done Raise'n him.....but, I'll never stop Prayin' for him! Its time for me to go take care of the true ROCK of our family for a bit.....his momma. Before I go....MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! I wish all of God's blessings on each and every one of you during my favorite time of the year.
4 pointsLOL at the topic of this thread. LOL at the suggestions for classification. LOL at this being a topic EVERY season. LMAO that no one has a suggestion that would be agreed upon by 30% of the people who would even stop to read this thread.
3 pointsOnce again I am going to jump in here and offer you a little help. The Wave Wrestling Club run out of CBHS is inside of 240 (or right on it). We will happily coach kids from anywhere that have an interest in getting started with the sport or continuing their off-season development. I can't even begin to name the number of schools that kids from that club have attended as youth or high school. We have donations of shoes and headgear that kids can use to minimize cost and I can gladly say we have never turned away an individual from the club or an event because they didn't have funds. You talk a lot about needing to find the balance between family and wrestling. Let others in the community help shoulder the burden. No coach has to do it all if folks band together and pool resources. You want to stay involved? Great, come out and help during those practices.
3 pointsNone of this matters to me but I know for a fact in Benton county each sport supports itself.Through the gate fundraisers or the Band running concessions for both the HS Jr,HS and minor league football I do not know how they do it a Waverly but what matters is the kids.Do they have what they need to play ball and prepare for success at their chosen sports?More importantly after they graduate are they prepared for life? I would say that the kids who played football the last 5 years at waverly will never have a problem with hard work, discipline or authority. The credit for that goes in no small part to Coach McConnell . Say what you want the guy is a winner A lot of folks on here talk tough but Wouldn't ever repeat the talk on here to any mans face much less Coach McConnell's
3 pointsOnly if they’re deciding the state championship winner on a game of dice.
3 pointsSome retired numbers hanging in the rafters of the old gym belong to guys that were on back to back junior high state champions in Lewis County. It has happened in pretty much all sports for many years. The lack of acknowledgement is what is comical. Just own it.
3 pointsMiddle TN Pole so Middle Tn is favored. Let’s see where they are in December
