    Memphis people always say what great players they have, every year Memphis has 8-10 Div. 1 prospects. Name 8-10 div 1 players that have come from Memphis the last 2 years. Don't include all of western tennessee or parts of Arkansas, just Memphis. Also, Tennessee has their choice of players. They consider things like home life, GRADES, attitude, etc.

    best payers in east tn

    I thought Rechelle had commited to Belmont on a academic/athletic scholarship...i think she has a 4.0+ Also, Depew has verbally committed to Carson Newman. So who does that leave that hasnt committed that has the opportunity to go D1?

    Remind me again about who can recruit ...

    If public school coaches are mad for losing their players to private schools then they should evaluate their own program. I have never heard of a student transfering because they loved their current program. Most of the time they leave an lessor program for a stronger one! If the public school system would pick up their game then the students would stay where they are! As far as an education their is no doubt private schools are better than public. Look at graduation rates, test scores, seniors going to college...private schools are simply better for a childs educational experience in east tennessee. Basically no school can recruit directly but every school is recruiting indirectly with the success of their program. So if a coach wants to start getting "recruits" then they need to start winning games and make the players better in practice.

    Shelbyville transfers

    I see many different opinions on this post and want to ask a question. If the transfer gets the opportunity to play ball in college because she transfered to a better program is that a bad thing? The education she gets in high school will be the same at any of the private schools so really the transfer is only looking to continue her education in college while playing ball. is this a bad thing? As an adult if you find a better job you change jobs! Why should a teenager not be allowed to better her self?

    best payers in east tn

    Out of all of the girls named I would say Hall has the best chance of signing with a major Div. I school. The others will play in college but Hall has all of the skills needed for Div. I. As far as Middle school players ?????? I've seen several (from Farragut, West Valley, cak, Halls, Webb, Farragut, Powell, etc...) that are pretty solid players but I don't think I've seen a stand-out. You know the player you watch and know she is going to be good.

    halls vs. clinton 2009 week 0

    Hope Dowdy has a speedy recovery and hopefully all is well! Can someone close to the program answer a few questions? 1)Does anyone know anything about the back-up quarterbacks that are know fighting for a starting position? 2)How badly does this hurt Halls in their hunt to make the play-offs?

    Open Gym-TN Flight Select

    If your daughter is going to be in the 8th grade she probably will be playing with the 13's which will have open gym on the 30th from 1:30-3:00 at central high school.

    Girls Travel Basketball

    I have no problem with more SRT's, in fact I think that's a great idea. This would allow more teams from Tennessee to play at nationals. However, i don't think their should be more teams at the state. If more teams make it to state then the girls would have to play more games. If a team cannot finish in the top 2 in sub-state then how will they be competative at the state level?

    Irish playin fair?

    To answer your question, AAU is not regulated by T$$AA so they can practice everyday of the year if they desire. If their was an AAU football program they to could practice when ever they wanted.

    Rising Junior Galen Campbell to transfer to Fulton

    I understand that Tyler will be attending Anderson Co. Does that make them district favorites?

    TSSAA Board of Control Meeting

    It's always about the money!!! However, if your one of the best teams in the state you will make it to the state tourney reguardless if we have 4 or 6 divisions. In my opinion Tennessee hands out way to many golden balls! Their should be 2 divisions----small and big, but then how would t$$aa make any money?

    1moreopinion it looks like your statement was wrong about him leaving, you know thats how gossip gets started so please don't make statements that are't true. I agree catcall09, Clinton is a tough way to start the season! I also agree that Julian needs a quick start or he could be in trouble. Many parents aren't a big fan of the wing-T and were unhappy with the play calling last year! If the quarterback was looking at transfering who could blame him. Under the wing -T the qb gets no pub and with the whole Julian ordeal i could understand him wanting out.

    Top Ten

    Very good list and i don't know who you would remove but i think you have to include Taylor Mills from Gibbs. She is having a great AAU season and getting some good coverage on espn hoopgurlz.

    Trying "to provoke unrest"? I would say the fact that your coach wanted to leave but his offer fell though would cause "unrest" And to clear it up their was an offer and he accepted it, he was leaving Halls! I dont blame him for trying to better his life for himself and his family. I was simply stating that he was in fact leaving Halls and many parents wanted him forced out. And i doubt if 40 kids were at each work out, is their even 80 kids on the team?
  17. allamerican2014


    Thats why they were posted as questions and not statements, sounds like you have the inside scoop! How did the players respond to Julian leaving and then coming back? did it hurt morale?
  18. allamerican2014


    I heard the QB, Dowdy is leaving for Oak Ridge. Can anyone confirm that. i also heard that summer workouts were not be attended by many people, as few as 15 people were showing up on a good day.

    Clarkrange gets 7 new "transfers" in 2 years

    This is a great question! What will the child do when they get a job and an employee transfers in from another company and takes their promotion because the new employee is more qualified? The child can either work harder to get better or move schools! In my opinion she should stay where shes at and work hard in practice and on her own and get better. Practicing against better players in practice will make her better. And while shes at practice she needs to compete at everything...push the "starters" to new limits. Not everone can be the star! We all have roles in life and we each have to learn our roles! College coaches will take a bench player from a successful program/team over a good player from a poor team because they know the "bench" player knows how to compete and they know that they earned ever minute of playing time they got from hard work! Look at this as a blessing and not a curse! In the end its just high school basketball and it will not be a defining moment in her life!
  20. However, almost all schools get around this rule by using "booster club" money to pay for team and individual camps. This is not a penatly as long as the check doesn't come from the school. The same rule applies to schools that feed their teams before games. The stuff is "donated" or payed for by the booster club.

    Clarkrange gets 7 new "transfers" in 2 years

    Maybe, but i promise more average girls on winning teams get scholarships than good girls on poor teams. And simply put----its fun win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Clarkrange gets 7 new "transfers" in 2 years

    Exactly correct! Why would quality players not want to play for the best coach/school they can? This is not recruiting it is simply parents putting their kid in the best possible situation to be successful on the court. Academically the schools are equal so why not when a few championships while getting an education and possibly getting a free college education from it!

    Good luck with your new team! Perhaps you could play Unaka????

    Unakas girls

    So basically your husband chased after him in anger and you wonder why he doesn't want the "parents" involved? Just because you gave birth gives you no right to be involved on the basketball court, perhaps you should form a 16u Jr. pro. Team?!!?!??!

    halls coach gone

    As long as the parents are happy...especially the ones with kids that cannot play a lick!
