  1. Small town newspapers are as useful as cable TV.
  2. I don't think they are planning on going back down to White Oaks level! You are a SH troll!
  3. 12JEFF You are absolutely correct. Carthage has a special thing going over there right now, and other than them, Henderson has been the 2nd best team several years in a row. Its easy to blame it on the coaches here but really look at what they have done in the past few years. No one in the state can match what Carthage has done and very few can match what Henderson has done. FACT!
  4. Have you seen West Rusk's roster? They have a hand full of freshman starters! This theory can work both ways.
  5. From what I could tell, against Harmony I saw 4 freshman on defense for a lot of the game.
  6. Gotcha! Honestly I wish that wasn't an option. These schools that are prospering are all benefitting from move ins. We all know who they are. I think there needs to be more penalty time when they move around and also stricter guidelines to qualify to transfer. All reality, winning championships with non home grown kids is not proving much. This football in Texas high school is about like select baseball.
  7. The Kilgore kid has been there for several years. His mom has been an employee for a while. Its more like his dad came down to coach. As far as Henderson kids go, West Rusk school district goes all the way to the west side of the city limits of Henderson. Those kids have been going back and forth for years.
  8. Last Year was last year! This year is a whole different story. Henderson hasn't proved that they are worthy at all. Nor has many schools yet this early in the year. I hope Center plays them tough and Center has a good year. I don't think anyone on here but you have downplayed any other teams. Stick to pulling for Center and Gladewater and not putting other teams down, especially when you don't know the facts.
  9. Also Gladewater was a 4a team until the early 80s and when they dropped, they had had some success in 3a for several years. It always makes it better with being in the larger enrollment side of your classification!
  10. That is true to a point! The only team that was 4a that had not dropped then was Kilgore. Carthage, Chapel Hill, Palestine and Henderson were all down. So my point is, they did drop but we were all still playing the same teams. The difference was we lost the metroplex teams such as Highland Park, Ennis, Waxahachie etc. Henderson hasn't been king of anything ever and Gladewater has never owned Henderson either.
  11. I think most of the Henderson posters were embarrassed to be associated with the jailbird!
  12. I love the lions being the underdogs! Just like last year, no respect. Bring it on PG!
  13. Its still a better value than going natural. To keep a grass field up and ready you have to figure up labor hours, chemicals, water, paint, equipment etc.. Then depending on mother nature is another issue. It just takes one rainy day to completely destroy the field. Artificial fields can be used rain, sleet or shine by everyone all year and not be bothered at all. Its very beneficial to the communities also. the little kids get to play there on Saturdays too.
  14. Talent does have a lot to do with overall record. Carthage was up last night but it’s not always that way. No sour grapes dude, it is what it is. Everyone in the state is chasing what Carthage is doing. Not just Henderson.
  15. Better talent my $$$. I guess better talent is the reason Carthage is still behind all time record. I would say that’s a homer statement. I didn’t see better talent last night. Carthage has a better staff. Preparing a team is huge. Play calling and decisions are huge. Confidence is huge. Surratt is a great coach and would have the same results if the spots were changed. Henderson has a good staff but not on the level of Carthage. After this party is over Carthage will go back to being just good again just like Gilmer.
  16. Officials were from Ft Worth. Excuses. Van played a great game. Just didn’t get it done.
  17. According to the stats, penalties were even. Should have kicked the extra point. Henderson’s special teams were struggling. Lions scored 3 TDS and a field goal to get 21. I like the call in some games but this one was different.
  18. I got a chance to take a look at Carlisle against Alto a few weeks back. I will say these are two different styles of teams. Carlisle for a change has several skilled players that can play for any school no matter the size. Tons of speed! Turner is the best athlete ive seen all year and I have watched a 6A, several 5a and 4a's along with 3a. They wont stop Joquin's offense from moving the ball but I can see Carlisle jumping out and scoring quick and often making it tough on the Rams to stay in the game.
  19. Carthage doesn't have Ingram this year but to say they are not as good might be wrong. My old butt could run with that OL. The DL is just as good. Carthage is a well oiled machine so im not giving HH a chance in the world.
