I don't want to put pressure on this player but is  Jenna Johnson starting to remind you of a former Lady Wildcat? 


The player I am thinking of is two time Class AAA Miss Basketball, Southern Conference Player of the year at UTC and current Head Coach at Harden Valley Academy JENNIFER WILSON.

My nickname for Jennifer was Miss Automatic. Back then, I posted a lot on OR Lady B-ball. Became friends with parents like the Barnard's and Coach Burkey. I also became a friend of the Wilson Family the year I taught Jennifer's nephew at Oak Ridge Nursery School.

The players wondered how I knew so much about them and who I was. Finally, one day at an AAU Tournament at Roane State, Miss Automatic came up and sat by me. Finally, she asked if I was WillieTheWildcat. We had a laugh and talked for a around an hour. She wouldn't say but my guess was Mrs. Lee ( Jennifer's Grandmother ) gave me away. They were all really good people.

Anybody agree that Jenna may turn into a Jennifer someday?  RWR!

I think we can say that Coach Taylor has our girls playing her brand of basketball.  West goes down 72-35.  I like that this team has a lot of weapons and not so reliant on 1 person to carry the balance of the scoring load.


Perfect observation Neil.

The one thing I hope for this team is it gets some time with the injured inside players before the season is over. Those girls are working hard trying to get well and deserve playing time. 

RWR! Rebounding is a " want to " skill. Want it Oak Ridge!

Thank you to Neil, Stephanie and the Thompson Family for tonight's Lady Wildcats basketball streaming game. They are a Super Wildcat Family.

It is halftime and Oak Ridge is beating Knoxville Central  29 -  16 in the District 3-AAAA tournament girls.

You are welcome Willie.  Glad to do it. #RWR

    • Dude... You are as full of crap as a Christmas turkey. If he has the same success at Cleveland offensively as he did at Blackman he will be fine, Especially if the defensive side of the ball is matched. Blackman gave Oakland a good game until the last 8 minutes, when playing your best players on both sides of the ball finally wore out.  Lets put you in a grown up world for a minute and pretend you can double your pay for the same job, with potential bonuses, travel allowances and a blank check for needed/wanted equipment and facilities upgrades... or stay put and take less.... As a coach or an employee, you are worth what people are willing to pay.   
    • Well check the receipts he only moves on for a better job. And there will be no better job. Cleveland beat Maryville last year ppl act like that team is an NFL Caliber team but they aint they are always beatable, Secondly if someone came to you and said he is a step up the career ladder and double the pay, you think they should turn that down cuz"They aint been here long enough?" Stop making it seem like people are less than for doing something that any intelligent adult would do. And lastly in regards to @fooseball95 I agree, he is a great defensive coach but by not keeping him as a DC all in all says he will be gone. he's to respected and connected to drop down to a positions coach after being such a successful DC
    • Tygard ain't moving fur enough away.  Oakland will still beat his brains in.  It'll just be one game later.  And that is ONLY if he can build a team to beat Murvil.  Ol Mr Onsides kick.  what a joke.  Man is good at gettin' jobs but he ain't got much stick around in him apparently.
    • I definitely agree, we needed to keep Barger .
    • I just have heard and read some things that are concerning but I mean if he's a good coach that's all I care about.
