Not trying to kick a team while they’re down, but man I wish Beech was in 5A again this year. Something has happened in HC and the wheels have come completely off. There’s way too much talent to be sitting at 3-5. Even with that being the case, should finish 5-5 and come playoff time anything can happen.

In a normal year this would be true. I wouldn't be shocked by a first round loss depending on who we played.

Unfortunately, I would have to agree. I was surprised by the loss to Springfield, but now sitting at 3-5, I’m a bit shocked. That said, with the talent HC has they could also make a deep run in the playoffs. They’re a bit Jekyll and Hyde.

I dont know if you saw previous posts but we lost what I would say 2 of our top 3 best players who played both sides of the ball due to disciplinary reasons for probably the rest of the season (I dont know full details) Along with not having our starting RB. We are a complete mess right now unfortunately. Gah man i wish there was something positive to say but I cant find it...

Sure hate to see such a proud program in disarray. When they played Haywood in the Jamboree, it just seemed like something was off. The line didn't seem as imposing on both sides of the ball and they were dropping passes etc. The offense also looked kind of vanilla. I thought they would still be fine and didn't see this coming. PT looked horrible in the same Jamboree, but I guess they improved. I do know the folks at Henry County are not used to losing and do not like it at all.

Yeah, you know how passionate I am about this football team and program @reddyrebel6

Last night Junior QB Ryan Damron set the all time passing yardage mark at Henry County! Nothing but love for that kid and his family! He deserves it! Seen a few people on Facebook and places calling for a change at the QB position because of the recent struggles of the team as of late. Let me be clear that Ryan is the ONLY QB I want behind center for this year and next. That young man came in as a freshman and put his head down and started working from day 1 and now is YOUR All Time Passing Yardage King at Henry County!!!

This tells me something about the OC. He came from a college program down to high school. That speaks for itself.

Yeah definitely. Don't get me wrong he is a great great guy! I have talked to him several times and he always carried himself well. The unfortunate part is any kind of football coach is judged on their performance, and when expectations aren't met or even come close to, that usually isn't a good sign. The defense last night did an OK job given the circumstances of Paducah Tilghman running a high tempo offense and our offense not being able to sustain drives to give our defense a rest. Our defense just gassed out I think but I still applaud them for their effort against the speed and athleticism of Tilghman.

I'm a HC graduate and love following the Big Red football games but this is as bad as it gets for HC. I'm just going to say facts about what's going on and what everyone else is seeing. When we had Coach Gaddis, he didn't care what the last names were for the players and he played the best players to give his team the best chance to win. We have a major coaching problem and bad coaching decisions made Offensively. That team has way too much talent up and down the sidelines with most of it being on the sidelines. It shouldn't matter if you're a Freshman or a Senior but the best talent and players should be playing instead of having to wait for the Senior to leave and graduate. If I'm the Head Coach or the Offensive Coordinator, I'm putting all my playmakers on the field at the same time instead of a couple talented players with this group and another couple talented players with another group. Just bad coaching and bad decision making and it's time to do something differently because what is being done isn't working. I will say since 2016 the head coach has been blessed with great talent bailing him out producing winning seasons and now it's caught up with him and it seems that now they're having to coach and can't get the job done. The best in the game today is Nick Saban and we all know if his players aren't getting the job done, he will shake things up without being afraid of what the Boosters will say or think because it's about winning games for his program and his players. Pee Wee football coaches don't get paid to lose but middle school and above coaches get paid to do a job. The bottom line, it's time to make changes.

Sam here.  HC class of 2000. On this thread after the Paducah game I said these coaches have been exposed this year. You hit the nail right on the head about the talent to just win games. I really noticed a problem in the 2018 state game when we had plenty of talent but the play calls weren’t working at all and it seems like they just kept beating that same dead horse. Same thing happened when we lost to Dyer county in the playoffs. We had a great team. But they got wise to us running up the middle. What was our play calls? Up the middle 3rd down no gain. 4th down. Same thing up the middle. And the crowd is just losing their minds how we all see it and the ones paid to just keep crippling our kids with the same thing that just hasn’t worked. Nothing will change because there is some really good talent coming up. But we get exposed in the big games :oops:
