  1. It’s hard for me to believe there were 5 Tight Ends in 4A last year who were better than Montrell “Big Cat” Smith.
  2. Fact or rumor? Keaontay could outlift in the weight room all but two of the O-linemen who were responsible for blocking for him.
  3. Returning players who were named All-District: #3 QB Javarian Roquemore - Honorable Mention #4 WR Montrell Hatton - District Offensive Newcomer of the Year #5 MLB Kip Lewis - UNANIMOUS District Defensive MVP #6 OLB Camden Foster - UNANIMOUS 1st Team #9 CB Brandon King - 1st Team #13 WR/S Braeden Wade - 1st Team Offense/2nd Team Defense #14 OLB Freddy Lynch - 2nd Team #17 WR/KR Noah Paddie - Honorable Mention Offense/2nd Team Kick Returner #20 DE Je’Kerrick Johnson - 2nd Team #32 RB Tavarius Johnson - Honorable Mention #34 OLB Ethan Kimb
  4. If Gilmer is better than Carthage in 2021, how much of that 56+point swing from 2020 will be attributable to Gilmer being better and how much to Carthage being worse?
  5. On Mykel Gates: Tevin Pipkin started three seasons at RB for CHS, leaving as the school’s career rushing leader as I recall. In the season opener against Hallsville in 2014, the first season after Pipkin’s graduation, freshman Mykel Gates seemed to me to be the most effective running back for CHS even though he didn’t start the game. I remember commenting to a friend that Gates would probably break Pipkin’s rushing record by the time his high school career ended four years later. (I hadn’t yet heard of Keaontay Ingram.) On McCain’s starting 4 years: Ed Pope played as a freshman on the fir
  6. According to the 2019 edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, Mason Courtney had 934 yards (don’t know if that also includes passing reception yards) and 12 TDs rushing going into his junior season. I remember seeing him on the field after that one loss to Liberty Hill in the 2018 semifinal game as his parents tried to comfort him. I don’t think he had ever before played on the losing side in a football game representing a Carthage school...and he didn’t thereafter either.
  7. As indicated in the “Razorbacks 2021 Thread” in the College Forum, one of the seniors on the 2019 CHS Bulldog team is in the news. Ty’kiest Crawford, 6-5, 335 OT has announced that he is transferring from Charlotte of Conference USA to Arkansas. Along with high school teammate Kelvontay “Moochie” Dixon, Ty committed to Arkansas before the 2019 season before decommitting during that season. A 4-star recruit, Ty was the highest-rated recruit ever signed by Charlotte.
  8. 5. (cont'd)...on the Raiders' home field. They were quite hospitable, as the Bulldogs only had to cover 23 yards to pick up 2 of their 1st 3 scores. 6. The 3rd-round game pitted a team that was about to move up to Class 5A (Crandall) against a team about to move down to 4A Division 2. The smaller school's team won 52-21. 7. The Bulldogs returned to the Tomato Bowl for the regional championship game against Midlothian Heritage. For the 5th year in a row and the 10th year in the past 12, CHS won the regional title. In the 24-7 win, all 4 of the victors' scores came on 4th-down pl
  9. Ten interesting facts: 1. CHS's 44-41 loss to Liberty Hill in the 2018 state semifinals snapped a 40-game winning streak. It was the third time a Scott Surrat-coached Bulldog team had lost a state semifinal game. The previous two times, CHS had come back the following year to win a state championship (2013 after losing to El Campo in 2012 and 2016 after losing to Waco La Vega in 2015). The 2019 Bulldog team was thought to have the talent to continue this trend, as 14 starters returned from the 14-1 semifinalist. However, an All-State QB was among those who had to be replaced. 2.
  10. Regarding Graham’s unsuccessful 2-point attempt with 1:22 remaining in the state championship game: Graham’s first extra-point attempt failed when the kick was short. It was kicked straight down the middle, but it didn’t have the distance (i.e., went less than 20 yards in the air.) Thus, when the Steers scored their second touchdown of the game with less than 2 minutes remaining to pull within 13-12, everyone expected a 2-point attempt. After all, Graham’s kicking game wasn’t exactly stellar. After taking a timeout, the Steers returned to the field and lined up as if they were goin
  11. Upon further reflection, I believe the CHS lead after scoring against Whitehouse early in the third quarter was 39-21. Thus, Patrick Mahomes et al. scored the game’s final 42 points in handing the Bulldogs their only loss of the season. This is my final answer.
  12. Ten interesting facts: 1. Since the 2017 Bulldogs won the school's 6th state football championship in 10 years with a perfect 16-0 record, many have opined that this has been the best CHS team. The 2017 preseason edition of Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine picked CHS as its choice to be the best Class 4A Division 1 team in the state. The defending state champions returned 3 First Team All-Staters, two senior WRs in Dee Bowens and Dewaylon Ingram who had combined for over 1,850 yards in receptions in 2016, and 2 big and strong senior LBs in Mykel Gates and Ahmad Brown (returned af
  13. Ten interesting facts: 1. CHS entered the 2016 season with great expectations, returning 12 starters from the 2015 state semifinalist team. In addition, there was another big-armed QB ready to replace Second Team All-State Jarod Blissett, the graduated senior starter from the prior year. Senior Kason Davis, son of Offensive Coordinator Kevin Davis, was a 6-1, dual-threat QB. Dave Campbell's 2016 Texas Football magazine picked the Bulldogs 3rd in Class 4A Division 1 in its preseason edition. 2. CHS lost two of its starters before the season opener, as junior LB Ahmad Brown moved
  14. At the conclusion of the 2010 season, QB Anthony Morgan held all of CHS's single season passing records: Most yards - 3,680 Most completions - 242 Most attempts - 381 Best passing percentage - 63.5 Most TDs in a game - 6 (2010 state championship game) Most TDs thrown - 41 (set in 2009) Most yards passing in a game - 423 vs. Gladewater He also held all of CHS's career passing records: Most yards - 6,729 Most completions - 435 Most attempts - 693 Best passing percentage - 62.8% Most career TDs - 81
  15. Ten interesting facts: 1. CHS had an experienced team in 2013, with 16 or 17 returning starters determined to take care of what they considered to be some unfinished business from 2012. The Bulldogs had uncharacteristically blown a fourth-quarter lead in the prior year's semifinal game against El Campo, depriving themselves of a fourth appearance in five years in the state championship game. 2. CHS headed into its final non-district game of the season with a perfect 4-0 record. Three of the four wins had come against 4A teams. Likewise, 3 of the 4 wins had come against teams tha
