The Groves kids are legit. Need to stay more composed in games but that’s on their coaches to reel them in. Talent for all of them is undeniable though. I am just keeping it real

I agree that part of it falls on coaching, but it’s not the whole problem. You can only discipline, run, practice, preach, advocate, beg, and drill discipline into these kids for so long before it’s up to them to get it. It’s not a matter of technique or talent but of having a mind and will for it.

I’ve never been a coach, but that’s my perspective on it.

The charter busses they got for the trip to Chattanooga last year was around $3000 this year just the busses have more than tripled in price plus hotel last year they stayed a night at MTSU and a night at Chattanooga with about 100 staff/players plus food. That’s the cost won’t get on my soapbox but I think it’s a bad look begging for money that’s being used on non essential things like a charter bus 

Actually cost last year was 7000 for charter this year was 10,000

as for using school buses that’s not a option with no extra buses to use 

They didn’t stay a night Murfreesboro they drove up the Thursday morning had practice then left for Chattanooga

I get the sentiment, but you have to remember that it's voluntary, and my information was that no one connected directly to the school system nor team started the account, so it isn't begging. It's obvious that people want to help out, so just enjoy the benefits of their generosity, and as an old coach with ties to both Scotts Hill and Riverside used to say "don't knock someone out of their blessing" if they want to feel like they've helped the kids in some way. Enjoy the ride Riverside...you've worked for it, now go get it!

    • The refs blew the whistle almost every time down the floor. It made it very hard to watch. Hopefully they will never ref a 7aaa game again.
    • This is all fun for me. Love the trash talk. I can dish it out and I can take it. Part of it. But Treys success is not gonna be by me. His mother nor I pressure him to do this at this level. We do however when he goes to practice push him to take it serious and get the most out of it while he’s there. We have learned a lot since he started when he turned 4. Kid loves it and hates to lose. I ask him if he wants to go to Tulsa every year up to him and he says yes. He trains hard and those tourneys are fun for him. This journey we are on has created a lot of friends and met some great people and went to places he would have never went. But me wanting to live through him is not true at all. But I am addicted to wrestling with him. Love it and love being there daily. That’s where his friends are. So what people think of me has nothing to do with him. But I didn’t know if u had an issue with me since that post or two especially since I see you at tournaments watching Dillan. 
    • Agreed!  WC will refocus and win on Saturday!!
    • Upperman outplayed and out coached WC. Both teams will still make it to Murfreesboro. Let’s do it one more time in the finals next week!!
    • Sometimes a loss is the best thing that can happen to you! Its been awhile since wc lost a game. Time to refocus.
