Why would George Quarles want to coach at a place with the program trending downward like Maryville ?

There is the question right there folks.  There is only one job in Blount County that George Quarles would ever be a serious applicant to apply for in 2023 and it isn't Maryville.  If Coach Nix were to leave Alcoa then I could definitely see Coach Quarles as the Tornadoes next football coach.  That would only be if it happened in the not too distant future. 

 

Maryville isn't considered the statewide "super power" that they were once upon a time....

 

Maryville in the late 90s and 00s was a force when they were in 4A beating up on Morristown West & Co.  I was lucky enough to see them play Whites Creek (1998), Maplewood (2007), Hillsboro (2001, 2002, 2006, 2008), Melrose (2004 and 2005) when they were seemingly invincible during that time.  

 

Maryville was the "5 Class System 4A" powerhouse from 1998-2008 that Alcoa eventually became in the "5 Class System 2A" from 2004-2008 and has continued to be in the "6 Class System 3A" since 2009 (minus hiccups in 2011 and 2012 to CAK).  

 

It makes some of the Maryville posters upset when I post this on here but since 2009 when they elected to play up to the "6 Class System 6A" they've had some great teams, won several championships (6), but in the end they haven't had nearly that same aura. 

 

No current football player at Maryville high school has ever played in a state championship game (2020-2023).  That doesn't make them "failures" by any stretch of the imagination.  They had very productive high school playing careers and will go on to do great things in their lives to come.  

 

Coach Quarles saw this writing on the wall when he saw the emergence of Oakland when Coach Creasy came to Murfreesboro.  Signs of it had shown in meetings with Alcoa and Ravenwood but when it started happening versus Oakland it was just plain different because it was the barrier that prevented Maryville from reaching the pinnacle and playing in the state championship games as they had done so many times earlier.

The school board has been to busy dealing with Karen and the Library Book this week. Somebody should take it and throw it at her.

We are down a calculus teacher and now folks wanna throw books away. It would be difficult to not offend Karen b4 that conversation was over.

Keep telling yourself that.  Alcoa WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!  Who cares about the county?!?!?

Winning the county gets you a t-shirt. 

Winning the state championship AGAIN gets you some hardware and it means that you didn't have to buy tickets to get on the field to see the games. 

It also means that you didn't have to create t-shirts to feel better about your life.

If any chance in the world GQ went to Alcoa the very first thing he would do is jump to 5A. He absolutly would get nothing out of beating up on a bunch of corn dogs from Lizard Licks. That is a good Thanksgiving story though. Hopefully Coach Nix will be around for a long time, forget the loss to Maryville , he's doing a great job.

    • You defend your little buddy bsatt like it’s the end of the world just as much. Why don’t you go on to Upperman with him this summer… you know he is your “BEST MAN”. 
    • No sir. Not staying at East. But definitely not going to Elizabethton. 
    • Football and basketball coaches should not be making 100,000 not teaching any classes unless their winning state championship every year lol
