  1. One of the best Deffensive Backs coaches in the area retired years ago from coaching Robinson and coached the freshman aswelll ... Since then it hasn't been the same .......Coach B Church
  2. Its ok ... Its Halftime and its DB ....everyone knows what happens at half at DB (The opposing team sneaks sleepy pills in DBs coaches water) haha - its been going on for years , plenty of come backs .....You all will make it a game shortly !
  3. What's Graham doing already resigning from Emory ? Says health reasons ...
  4. Former DB Cade Maupin sure single handely put it to Science Hill !! 158 yards rushing , crucial interception , fumble recovery and a TD !!! sometimes I think how I can't blame him but then how can you get any better than J Fred on a Friday night .. thats The Story at DB ... two players (our Big 235 lb bruiser of a running back is not playing(quit) and Cade transferred ) ... WOW
  5. Come on D backs !!!!! I can remember a time at DB when the D back field was on point , produced many College players ... Some of the best "Volunteer/ Coaches " at the middle school level in Kingsport retired several years ago .. I certainly know of one that did everything he could to coach the D backs and made some great ones !. We need some great coaches in the Middle School level ( Robinson and Sevier ) before DB becomes great again .. I heard Robinson has not done to well this year ... 0-2 ??
  6. All I'm saying is : DB has made some great moves in getting help where it's been needed ...Only move that is questionable is the " Head Coach" .... I think in time this AD will get the job done ... I mean as you guys know the previous two ADs , especially the first one , never watched a game , was to busy chasing kids around from enjoying a game of touch football , walking around the outside of the stadium making sure smokers were away from the stadium and helping the Band prepare for their shows ..... But when the band played he would watch them every time !!
  7. Well another one is up on us ........Football Time in East Tn !! Good luck to all teams and a safe season for all players !! Its been some time but the staff is actually looking more like a "football staff" verse a "buddy staff" at DB !! Bringing back great dedicated past players as coaches and hiring a great AD is what DB has needed for the players and the fans .. The changes are exactly what the Fans have been calling for and slowly it's being seen in Kingsport . I'm not saying this Head coach will ever work out but the staff that has come on board are " top notch People and past players that worked hard in college " who can make a decent coach look Better .....Having someone like Gains and Hayworth will help bring in some players that may not have wanted or may have gave up on football - why ? Because they are well known in Kingsport , they are younger than the previous staff that probably averaged "90 years old" Hahaha and they have the hunger to see DB win again , which the players will see ! DB has always had the atheletes to compete with anyone but utilizing the best players correctly , developing every single player quicker and playing the right ones is exactly what's been missing !......Its clearly shown what a few new staff members can do ( especially being great football players In their own positions ) - the development has already began and happened quickly where it's been needed , **especially the Defensive Backs *** - which others and myself on here have been yelling about for so long . I have also seen more camps , I have heard more camps planned for kids in the future, and possibly more leagues for kids in the future - which Kingsport has needed since the great 80s and early 90s when the boys club was packed on Saturdays from 8am till 9pm with kids from all ages playing (flag to tackle) No this team will not win State , thats probably not for along while with any team at DB but getting back to the roots , winning games , producing great football players , putting yells back in those stands and packing J Fred is what DB/Kingsport lost Years ago ! Again .... Change is what we are seeing and as a fan of DB it's exciting to see ! Less mistakes , less breakdowns , and playing 4 quarters is all I'd like to see this year ... If they can show this , then it could be a 10-0 team hahaha , nah they could have a 7-3 , 6-4 type of season which should be a WIN for all the fans !!
  8. You heard it hear ha... it's in the works from what I'm hearing !! Knoxville first ... a walk in on the strip will make one very rich
  9. What amazes me is that Kingsport is trying so hard to get people to move here yet the ones that have been here all their life are up and leaving to near by areas , outside of Kingsport ! A great athelete just left DB for Betsy .... Don't blame them ! I'm tired of the one , two or three players a year that are the majority of the team because of their families .... When all these other players sit back and don't get the chance to shine I know several cops that have left and went to JC, Washington county , etc. because Kingsport is doing nothing about the crack heads / druggies because of overcrowding ... Cops just cant do their job to help this City because of Control ......Shootings everyday it seems like !! Ballad is causing Doctors , Nurses , Surgeons to leave Kingsport at high #s Kingsport Dobyns Bennett Football will never be the same again until the leaders correct the issues in front of them .... And "Heck", bring in Coaches that know what they are doing ! Again to many atheletes walking the halls , getting in trouble ,quiting , Families leaving ..... Heck Graham Clark is even leaving lol and once PALS goes nation wide , Kingsport is screwed Leadership is a Joke from Sports to the City office ! yeah I know "I was all over the place with this one" ha
  10. "I was actually asking a question in the main post " ... I was not saying that this is happening , I was saying "I have heard " and actually I have read this on FB aswell ! DB has the talent in Kingsport , the closest year that I can remember is in 2012 - Do I think another coach with rich coaching skills could have produced a gold ball, or got to the State .... Maybe ! My point is DB had a chance , a chance to hire a coach with rich coaching skills , yet the powers to be probably knew well before "their National Search " that it would be a good ole boy ..... Great coaches are just "great coaches " ... they Develop ! Year after year we see the same mistakes (especially with the D backs) .... yet it continues to be the same problem ! How many games has DB lost when leading by atleast 2.5 TDs in the last 5 years (a lot ) .... yet it continues to happen ! Its starts off with conditioning (sucks at DB ) , weights (sucks at DB) , practices , coaching etc. ....... the powers to be are content at DB , they have a Coach they know and a Coach that kept the staff that obviously has problems teaching skills in several positions that we have seen suffer for sometime now ! We had had a great coach with a proven record , a coach elsewhere with ties to DB , that was interviewd but was refused because he wanted to bring in some new staff .... Would he have been the man to turn this around , we don't know . But we do know that the current staff lacks the ability in several positions to teach (same coaches for along time ) These kids should have the chance to be developed ... they should have the ability to go to a College and play , but if they don't get the chance to showcase their abilitys , wether it be play calling , teaching , conditioning etc. , then they won't have that ability to continue on and it's not fair to the Kids and the parents ! Fact : did you know that in 2012 , 3 of DB players took it on themselves to do sprints , run with parachutes, workout at home , etc. .....Now this was late nights , nights when most kids would be out and about . I was told by one of their parents that they felt like they were not getting a workout and that they took it up on theirselves to become faster and stronger !! ***I think if the fans could see improvement in areas , winning Verse giving up big leads , coaches not letting up , conservative calling to the point every fan knows what's getting ready to happen , then fans would see change but it's not being seen and that why so many are upset about the State of DB Football ***** Few years back DB hires one of the best Band Directors in the country (he gets what he wants ((a fully paved , striped football field )) ) and all of his accomplishments are announced for a minute during football games ..... Yes he had some say in the addition to the football staduim ! ......If He was to leave today they would , without a question do a "nationall search " for another best in the country and get them !!! How is it fair that the band kids get the best yet Football kids don't ????? I guess this is a question that many don't understand ....
  11. Well I don't know if you a Fan of DB and have followed the tradtion of being at the games but this is not ME , this is about the players that experience this everyday ... more I could speak about but I'm not bringing up on this thread ! Simply put every die hard Fan at DB has seen the Football program go down hill in the last several years ... half the staduim leaves after half (band fans ) , even the admin .... Do you go to watch a band under the lights on a Friday night ? No you go to watch football but at DB you have a band director making 6 figures and a coach making 5 and it's a middle to low 5 !! Now like I said if you have been following DB football then you would see what the fans have been seeing for years ... Not only that but the players are making comments about the stands emptying after half ... AD let the program down when (The national search ) - was not a search ...
  12. If true there are Some major problems going on in the football program .... From a parent of a football player "Players tried having a meeting but was shut down by coaches" .... Is this allowed in High School anyway ? "players are quitting " "parents are saying they are going to transfer there kids if change is not made " this is coming from a parent DB Football - Real Talk (FB) Anyone heard of any of this or anything else
