  1. Congrats to Coach Metzel!! He is very deserving!! He will do a great job!!
  2. and Yes Nally is my father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate
  3. From my understanding he (Nally) has been mentored by the “Traylor Circle” and I do not believe that Gilmer is ready to get away from that line of thinking. He beat Gilmer a coupe of years ago in the 3rd round of the playoffs and is known for offensive football. I do not believe that Gilmer will get a defensive guy and sway away from the “Gilmer way”. That’s why I have said over and over again that it is Coach Metzel’s job to loose and he deserves the position hands down. The only shock would be is if he didn’t get the job.
  4. This hire if it is a “shock” will be someone who is knowledgeable in the spread offense. Coach Nally at Melissa is the only other spread coach that I believe would be humored by Gilmer. He is an offensive innovator and has been successful.
  5. With all of the silence out of Gilmer admin sounds like it will be an inside hire. (Metzel deserves it)
  6. Extremely sad for our youth and youth programs
  7. If outside hire try and open the pocket book and go get someone that WILL change things. If you get an outside hire they WILL change things and the people of Gilmer would have to accept that the Traylor circle and era is officially over. Now the question is can Gilmer actually accept that? Outside hire - 1. Surratt - Not happening unless you pay him A LOT of money (aint gonna happen) 2. Nally - established HC and has been associated with the Gilmer way 3. Any Coordinator @ PG - Gilmer would have to accept the wing-t and its philosophies. 4. I still like Metzel. Le
  8. Agree the easiest hire and he probably deserves it is Metzel. Great man and knows football.
  9. Metzel is the easiest choice. On staff and respected by the athletes. If admin wants to get out of the Traylor circle then Nally is the guy hands down.
  10. Word of the street is he is looking to come back to East Texas. Also, I don't he is the AD.
  11. Easy...Coach Metzel -Gilmer- (already on staff and knows the Gilmer way) 2nd Choice: Coach Lane -Pinetree- (has headcoaching experience and knows the Gilmer way) 3rd Choice: Coach Nally -Melissa- (East Texas boy thats has head coaching experience and offensive guru that would fit Gilmer perfectly)
  12. Coach Nally named HC at Melissa HS. I was hoping he would come back to East Texas. I think he is one of the best young coaches in the state. I know he will do great, he has got great coaches around him. Congrats to him and his family. https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/high-school/high-schools/2018/12/20/melissa-promotes-oc-matt-nally-head-coach-coach-stinton-moves-ad
