Grundy County Jackets 2014

Recommended Posts

I agree. But unfortunately I think 3-7/4-6 is competing for GC. These small counties believe they should hire a guy and have big results. Look at DC they hired a pee wee guy and he has built that program and they can compete for a region title each year. Trapp has brought stability to DC that's what small counties need.

With GC I don't agree with 3-7/4-6 being the ceiling as far as competing goes. Yall have had success in the past, and it is more than possible to constantly produce winning teams. In small rural county schools, talent comes and goes in cycles. Teams will be better in some years than in others. It's not a stretch expecting to win 6 games yearly at the minimum with the right coach. For the longest time, DC was flat out horrible. GC has more going for them than DC did at the time of Trapps hiring. He was not in the least bit qualified for the job. No one else wanted it, so he basically got it by default. His first few years were awful, but he got it turned around. Rarely will coaching hires like him work out. He is the exception, not the rule. DC just plain out got lucky. Record wise, GC has at least been mediocre to average recently. Not many teams can say they have made the playoffs the last 5 years. That is something yall should be able to build on in route to becoming more stable. Whether that is with the staff you have in place, or with new blood in the near future, is to be determined. The potential is definitely present, and there is a bright light at the end of yalls tunnel.

having a 4/6, (losing season) is not a ideal record for going to the playoffs.  ol yeller jacket remembers the day when it took a lot better record to get to the playoffs. and in that time it really meant something to have the opportunity to go to the playoffs.  a 4/7 record is terrible knowing the four teams you beat had losing records.  so if you don't even beat someone with a winning record, how are you even considered for the playoffs?  tiger fan, how is this something the Bryant boys can build on?

Non Caucasian coach needs to be brought in. Or atleast a HC from far away that will bring in a variety of assistant coaches with different ethnic backgrounds. Grundy County can't stay backwoods and country forever. Time for a change my friends. Join the crowd. The water is just fine! I'm just keeping it real

Yellerjacket, I agree 4-5 wins should not be enough to get into the playoffs. All im saying is things could be worse. Yall could be a 1-2 win a year type team that never comes close to sniffing the playoffs.

4-7 this year WITH talent, so according to football27 logic they will be a 1-2 win team this year.

Three wins because of schedule. Grace, Chattanooga Christian, and Cumberland County all should be wins.

I would like to know what we are waiting around on here in GC? It's time for a change and what seems to be the hold up. We had a let down on the football field this year also on the hardwood both boys and girls. How long has it been since our lady jackets has finished this terrible 2 straight years? People this has been a very depressing year so far in GCHS Athletics. Hopefully our baseball and softball seasons will be a bright spot. Come on administration and board step up to the plate for our student athletes!!! Please!!! It's an embarrassment. Because we are capable of so much more with our talent here.

I know they've "talked" to several people.  they just cant get anyone to commit.  they have screwed our team again by waiting too long to make the change.  the coaches are still only "drawing" their checks and not doing their jobs!  their names should have been on the board for not being "team players". (ask any of the players what that means)  total lack of respect of grundy county football and basketball.

I think Grundy can have a 6-4 to 8-2 program year in and out with the right changes. Maybe a 9-1 team every 8-10 years. I don't think they have the speed to be that 8-2 to 10-0 type team year in and out. Not from a talent stand point

So yellerjacket they have talked To coaches? Which coaches? Football, boys basketball, girls basketball? Do you care to elaborate, please. From what I hear sounds like nothing's gonna happen. It's all hush hush. I just figured since who these coaches are them and there families are friends of the program and school and nothing will happen. But for the athletes sake you would hope they would see it for there self. I believe we have to get busy to make this happen and not drag out feet or this coming year will be a wash also.
