  2. Best Rivalry Games

    I remember a day when the Gilmer and Gladewater had a very heated rivalry. Those days have seemingly passed us by. It's still a natural rivalry with both schools being orange and black, being GHS, similar in size, and only about 13 miles apart. Daingerfield also used to be good rival to Gilmer. Those schools have gotten smaller while Gilmer has stayed about the same size. With that, and the fact that Gilmer has dominated both in recent years takes some of the heat away from the rivalries. A new rivalry that's starting is with Carthage. Both teams are contenders every year, similar in size, and always state ranked, so it's a natural rivalry. We just haven't been playing each other long enough, though.

    I think our girls at Union Hill will be very competitive this season. They are looking much improved offensively and defensively.

    They've been reloading the last few years, but they will lose some big time players after this season. It'll be hard to replace that kind of D1 talent, so a little bit of a drop off would be in order. How big that drop off is nobody knows for sure. They can probably beat Gilmer, but I wouldn't bet on them beating WO-S.

    Wow! So they finally got 'er done, huh? A lot of blaming going on between those two for the past several realignments as to why wouldn't schedule each other. That's a good test for both teams next year, in my opinion. The year after? Probably not so much.

    Chapel Hill and Spring Hill will likely flip a coin for 1st and 2nd. Gilmer is the third place team.

    Yep! It doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

    Ya think? What do the Rabbits bring back this year? Anything is possible until we figure out what good defense is.
  9. Winners and Losers of Realignment

    It'll be different for sure, but I think he'll do just fine. He's very coachable from what I understand. He just needs a good O-line. It would take a lot of pressure off of him if we played good defense.
  10. Winners and Losers of Realignment

    It'll likely be Cade Camp. He's got a cannon for an arm, good touch, makes good decisions, and is accurate. He's not a big running threat, but can tuck and run when nothing is open, or under pressure. I would've liked to have seen more of him this past season, but...
  11. Wow! It's like several of those players should be playing on Saturdays after they graduate.
  12. Winners and Losers of Realignment

    That's true, in my opinion, too. Spring Hill could surprise this coming season if they learn to play defense. Of course, Gilmer would be a threat to win state titles every year if they played defense, too.

    Good grief! Are you serious? Any updates on the schedule. That's BRUTAL! Will they have any healthy players left for district?

    I would hope that the Newton game would be at a neutral site somewhere in the middle, but I haven't heard yet. That would be a brutal ride on the yellow dog.
