Now, now bounder and bonkers.....we're all on the same team. Can't we all get along? It's actually a good thing when I see OR fans fighting on Coacht...it means the season is approaching! For the record, OR will have a speed deficiency for the foreseeable future...I haven't seen anyone on recent freshmen or JV teams that can go the distance on a long run or long pass.

I think Johnny William's son is going to be an 8th grader for Robertsville.  He looked pretty good as a 7th grader last year.  Outside of him I agree, no J. Grahams or Tee Higgins types on the horizon.

I'm not even sure what state championship OR won 10 years ago. It's been closer to 30 years since OR won one in football and I guess around 60 years in boys basketball (I guess around 20 years in girls basketball). Since you mentioned 10 years, my research shows that in the last 10 years football has won 75% of its games, boys basketball has won 81% of its games, and girls basketball has won 70% of its games. Unfortunately no state championships though in what seems like an eternity. But I would say OR definitely has "winning" programs but definitely isn't the top program in the area. And I think all of the OR fans are more than ready for a championship!

Here is that information. Over the course of many decades, it is impressive.

Kendall Jackson, rising sophomore, has good genetics in the speed department. Looked great in Freshmen highlights on both sides of the ball.  Johnathan Stewart is fired up for the season and has wheels. The Johnson brothers are talented and swift. Rowe and Romano after breaking through the line will be a handful to take down. Finally, our QB Mitchell is a smart runner. As a freshmen he ran wild in the open field. Last season, he focused on the passing game. Maybe this season he will put it all together.

Yes, no Sweet Feet, Pendergrass, Booker and several others but MAYBE we will have players step it up. 

If not, my 55 year old fat #### will suit up.

Well  ... being Positive.  we lose good players and someone always steps up and fills the void. Guess that's just the nature of high school sports.

I think you're gonna like Kendall Jackson. Not sure about his straight ahead speed, but still a good looking back.

I hope you're right and he's ready as a sophomore. The few times I saw him play, I felt like he was a talented back but not exceptionally fast.
