Bearden at Farragut

Recommended Posts

Catholic played well against CAK. After dropping the first set they won the next three. All sets were close. Catholic is very well coached and their girls are very scrappy. CAK will be strong by the time districts come around as they work out the kinks and the younger key players get some game experience. 6'6" Hooper was just released to play after suffering a concussion mid summer and missed all preseason practice and games. Catholic was her second game of the season. It will be interesting to see how they progress. They do have 5 seniors and it is still early. Farragut looks like the cream of the crop. The look like the best team in Knoxville right now.

K2. If you ask the parents that had anything to do with Bearden in the last 3 years they will tell you he leaves. It will be interesting. If he loses to Farragut again in the tournament they may ask him to leave.

K2 You are correct. As i watch Bearden play and see the girls on the team, it's hard to believe how much they under achieve. Can you explain that to me? Is it the coach or the girls? What's your thoughts? I can remember when we made our big push at winning a state title our coach would tend to over coach in the "big" games. That's when we would lose. We had a lot of talent those four years and when she just let them play they played more relaxed and always won.

I believe it is what happens when you coach your daughter and when you have no training as a coach. Farragut is in the same boat. You need trained volleyball coaches in these positions.

FYi Bearden's coach was hired by Chris Hames at Smoky Mountain then when K2 opened he coached for K2 for 3 years. He coached Bearden Middle school vb for many years and started the Jefferson Middle School volleyball program.

Ask whoever. Its common knowledge.

He coached smoky mtn and k2 before we got there in 2010. He was the my daughter's k2 14-3 coach (2011), he coached the k2 15-2 team (2012). I can probably find photos of him at tournaments with a K2 shirt on.

At least 3 or more players off J Hames' 18-1 team were on BHS coach's 15-2 team in 2012.

 

 

To answer the why BHS isn't playing to their potential this year is obvious. BBV you said you were at the Farragut/BHS game so you should have seen it, clear as day...

BHS has a strong front row, but NO passing game.  The 4 year BHS libero graduated last year, our best passer and club player moved out of state this summer and our current libero only plays HS VB, NOT club.

 

In fact of the BHS players on varsity 6/10 play club. The other 4 only play HS VB.

In comparison to Farragut, where I believe EVERY varsity player plays club. 5-6 for KVA 5 for K2.

Club players make huge difference on a HS team.

 

 

PS: I did find a photo...if you want it I can email it. It won't let me post here.

Not just club players but good club players. Or should we say, talented athletes period. Forget coaching, great players make a great coach. Ask John Wooden. I know plenty of teams with club players who don't win because the other team has better athletes and players. Period. I've coached many teams and lost to much inferior coaches because they had betters athletes than I did. Period. That goes for Webb, Farragut, HV...and so on.

Beachboy. I hope this answer is good eneough. I'm not going to elaborate in order not to embarrass the coach.

 

Knoxdoyle is correct. He was on the smjvc staff along with the k2 staff. He (in the words of my friend) was in no way trained by the K2 directors. He was the 3 team coach and a 2 team coach. You're knowledgable in the volleyball world. We all know 2 and 3 team coaches. Let's just leave it at that.Please!!!
