Yes, I was there. I've never seen nor heard of 85 points scored in a middle school game! We have some talent coming up but I wouldn't say that it's great but a lot of players to be developed. Several talented running backs and receiver types and a couple of QBs that show some promise, including Coach Green's son. Linemen are typically mediocre at best but a couple looked potentially dominant. If we can keep Clinton and the private schools away from them, they should be a good group for the future. 

I can one up that. 

Last night Karns Middle beat South Doyle Middle 68-45 (nope, not a typo) at South-Doyle.  Apparently neither defense came out of the locker room. 

 

Even the scoreboard operator was so busy he failed to update the correct quarter.

Yeah, I saw the score and couldn’t believe it. I’m glad we have some talent in the wings coming up. Get several good classes in a row like we have with the Sophomore class and you have a good chance of being really good. Plus, when they get good coaching and get on a good weight program, you never know how good some of those kids can be.

Yikes. Do the Beavs possibly have some good talent coming up?

Actually they do.  

My eldest grandson is in the 5th grade, but because Karns doesn't have enough kids for a 5th grade team he is playing up on the 6th grade team. 6, 7, and 8 all practice together and I take my grandson to practice a couple of nights per week.  There is some really good talent there. The key will be keeping it at Karns. If they can keep the core at home they have an opportunity to be competitive in a few years.

It's hard to measure knox middle school ball. Half the team will play somewhere else at HS. There is no affiliation with the schools so anyone can play for any knox team. You don't even have to live in knox county. 

Sort of, but not really.  

The teams that play in the MAC have a "gentleman's agreement" that the kids on their teams are zoned for the high schools they represent. 

While I am not naive enough to know that there are kids playing out of zone, a large majority are playing where they should be playing by zone or they have a transfer to that zone for so,e reason.

    • That’s because without looking you could not 5 teams in the Top 50 not named Wyoming Seminary or Blair Academy. Our results at the national level would say otherwise. 
    • Upperman needs to stop fouling. Half of White County’s points coming from foul line. Holding WC to 16 in a half not too shabby. Have to do it for 4 quarters though. 
    • Wasn't things so much better for you all when they went 0-10 or when your 1,500 yard rusher (Wright) left to go play at Alcoa or when Jett left to play at Maryville because they got tired of the azz beatings and the humiliation they felt from all of that losing. Could you imagine if Coach OZ brought a cattle prod and stuck it up to your son's tail end at practice or made the offensive linemen push a station wagon while the coach was in the drivers seat mashing down on the brakes. If you think Coach Oz is a bad man then I guess you never heard of A.J. Wilson who coached for Walland most of the 50's and early 60's. If I hadn't of heard those stories from such credible men such as the late Benny Dalton ,Don Story and a host of other great friends from Walland that played during that time I wouldn't have believed it. They all just laughed about it while telling it but none had anything bad to say about him. Just like your QB that started the last two years at Heritage, he only had the best to say about Coach Oz and how much he helped him when I talked to him a few weeks ago. Coach Oz is what the doctor ordered for Heritage, a little "Shock and Awe" and the resistance still out there pushing their narrative and praying for a loss every week.
    • Has there been an official announcement or has Coach Stevens had a team meeting yet. l have not seen the media announcements from 5 star, Russo at Ch8, the guy from the Tennessean, or others. Mark Packer put it on X. Does that make it official?
