  1. If you hear the story behind Triston leaving Mexia for Pittsburg it makes sense. It's tough for Mexia as they go through yet another coaching change and I hope they can find the right fit. I have become a huge fan of Triston Abron and wish him the best at Pittsburg and even more so, better health for his father's recovering.
  2. Here's an interview with Terry Gambill on SicEm365 Radio soon after he announced his retirement. https://twitter.com/DavidSmoak/status/1371947902977896448?s=20 Smoaky

  6. I've been in this business for nearly 40-years, so I'm used to this trend, but it's very disturbing. We release a massive team encompassing 140+ programs in a large chunk of the regions we cover, East and Central Texas. 99% of the time the reaction is something negative, "why not," "How come..." "where is....?" Drives. Me. Crazy.
  7. I have always been available for "why?" So, name the players and then let's find out if they were nominated because we scratched and clawed to find everyone we could based on resources. Again, don't be generic, name the players, their stats and schools and let's see why not? My email is also available to insure I receive your response [email protected] Thank you.
  8. If they were nominated, they made Honorable Mention.

  12. The All-East Texas Team will be out on Monday...the team has been selected, Superlatives set and we'll have it out that day.
  13. My trip to cover Super Bowl LV pushed everything back and our webmaster and I will have that up we hope by end of the day on Friday, most likely on Monday. I would rather not release it on the weekend for more eyeballs during the week. Thank you.

  15. I was just now looking at this thread and let me make this very clear. Yoe ISD contacted Midway's Jeff Hulme, but there was never, not once any discussion or an interview or an offer and/or visa-versa interest from Coach Hulme. I don't know how this all started, but then again I do because of the connection between the superintendent and Coach Hulme, Texas Tech connections, etc. But, this was never going to happen and suggesting Jeff Hulme would leave Midway for Yoe, despite their amazing history and tradition was way off base.
  16. I debate releasing the All-Smoaky.com Teams every year because I know there's always going to be disappointment if someone is overlooked and it's surely not because of our effort to find every single nomination. But, if someone isn't listed it means I didn't receive a nomination and/or just an accidental oversight. There can always be a debate on who is 1st, 2nd, 3rd-Team or Honorable, who is a part of the "Superlative" awards or not. But, after more hours on this than anyone can imagine, here is our 2020 All-Smoaky.com All-Central Texas High School Football Team. https://www.sm
  17. http://www.callawayallee.com/jerry-jordan-richards/ Former Grapeland Head Coach Curt Faigle sent this to me and also said, "Jerry Richards was a long-time employee at Grapeland and served many roles, including head golf coach and head football coach. He passed away suddenly on Tuesday. He was the hardest working member of my staff during my time at Grapeland."
  18. I spoke with the "former Yoe coach" (Rick Rhoades) who is retiring at Gregory-Portland after the school year. And, when I asked if there was coaching on his radar, he said, "I want to retire and I plan on retiring on June 1st." And, Rhoades knew about the rumblings about Coach Brashear being out at Yoe. We'll see, stay tuned. https://twitter.com/DavidSmoak/status/1350123060020580352?s=20
  19. I recorded a 10-12 minute interview with Todd Dodge this afternoon for Monday's show on SicEm365 Radio. There are numerous tie-in's even from the days when Todd won a state championship with SLC at Riley was the QB, when Westlake won a state championship back in the day, Riley was a ball boy on the sideline. Coach (Todd) Dodge gave me an funny as hell answer to one of your questions about the "grandkids"...I'll have the interview on my twitter feed at @DavidSmoak by around 4:00 on Monday. Smoaky

  21. About every year at this time I post an old article I wrote about playing my last game of varsity football and what a high school football coach meant to me. It's long, but I've always received tremendous feedback from the membership and from high school football coaches throughout Texas. So, here it is... Merry Christmas! Smoaky ===== Dear Coach, I've been fortunate enough to have played the game of football in this state, and yes, before you smirk, many years ago (late-70's) at Universal City Randolph. As a military brat, I played for three high schools in fou
