Good post. The situations at both Heritage and WB have far less to do with the coaches than they have to do with the culture of the parents, schools & school district. Years of horrible facilities and lack of support are difficult to overcome. Add to that the option for parents to send kids to nearby school where the "grass is greener." Every year the effects of these compound on themselves and dig the hole the programs are in even deeper. The programs have been in a downward spiral where the culture makes it hard to be successful. The lack of success then just reinforces the negative culture which then makes it even harder to succeed.
The new fieldhouses are a step in the right direction but so much more is needed. Reeves is a high energy, hardworking guy who loves kids and will work his tail off to try to make WB successful. Hopefully the hole isn't too deep already. The hole is even deeper at Heritage so it's going to take someone really exceptional to turn it around. Don't know where you're going to find someone willing to take it on.
Hammontree is a quality person who had a huge, positive impact on a lot of kids at Heritage. With the types of kids and the backgrounds they come from at Heritage, helping kids win at life was far more important than winning ball games.
