    44 is a great player and has a chance to break Coach Mitchell's all time leading tackler record. They will have to make a deep run for him to approach that record, but it is possible. The concern on him for D1 offers is speed, both straight line (40 time) and lateral speed (cone drill) will need to improve alot to get those type of offers. He has all the other intangibles, football IQ, heart, toughness, leadership,excellent student and character, size and strength but unfortunately D1 teams are looking for speed, speed and more speed. He knows this and is working really hard on it. Can't wait to watch him lead our D. Great kid too.

    Billy Meyer Stadium was awesome. Watching games there was like being stuck in time, in a good way.

    sunshine pumper! JK. The freshman team next year has a chance to be really good. The 1-2 punch of Williams and Kelley at RB will be fun to watch. They should have good size and numbers as well. Coach Daniel Bass has been an excellent addition as freshman head coach.

    We have some good backs still in the program: Kendall Jackson #1, Jacquez Johnson #3, Isaiah Johnson #20. Tyrell Romano #21, Jaylen Heyward #24, Kjuan Stacy-Wright #16, Trey Rowe #36. These guys are all really good backs. Nice combination of speed guys and power guys.

    Knox Halls? crickets
  7. It is alot of work to do for not getting paid. You have to do scheduling for all sports teams boys and girls. Arrange and approve transportation for all sports. Find ticket takers and concession workers, oversee all the gate monies and team budgets. Takes a very dedicated person to do all that for no extra pay.
  8. Th AD position in Knox County is whichever assistant principal has any knowledge of athletics and is willing to do it. There is no paid supplement.

    Bounder, you should have seen all those guys from the state and our city council and the school board that dragged their feet for 3 years standing there with hard hats and shovels at the groundbreaking ceremony photo op. I would have had a different caption for that picture! Lol.

    It's hard for me to lay what happened against Catholic on the defense. They were put in a situation in the 2nd half where Catholic started 3 of their 4 scoring drives with momentum and a short field. One drive started at the 40 after a punt. Two others started inside the 20 after lost fumbles. Plus they were on the field nearly the entire second half. The offense only had 3 first downs in the second half and two of those were long touchdowns. Thanks to all the players and coaches for all the time and effort you put in. Especially thanks to the seniors. Looking forward to next season. I think we should have a pretty good team.

    You absolutely do need to go there. Here's a tip, They take orders until about 9:45. Do not go there until 8:00. It is jam packed from 5 to 7:45 nearly every night. BB I think it will expand if the team can win at that level. If they can't get it going, that will be a tough recruiting pitch atleast for football players.

    It will be interesting to see if the pipeline of good players dries up when Catholic is taking some L's in the private division II AAA . Now if Catholic is competing with Baylor, MBA, McCallie etc. and winning their share of games, than they could keep it going. But at least, they will finally be playing who they are supposed to be playing. And it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

    I'm quoting myself. lol. It was Jacob that punted the ball. I went back and watched it. The announcer at the game said Cole Adams, but then again, he called us Clinton for the first 3 qtrs.
