  1. I've heard that the previous Off. Coordinator is leaving, and Coach Maddox is going to be the new Off. Coordinator.
  2. Congrats to Coach Cochran! From what I've heard we are in good hands with you in charge.
  3. I think there is a board meeting tonight. Nobody that I know has heard of a name that they are taking to the board. Interesting times in Lindale.
  4. Has anyone heard anything? If they were staying in house don't you think it would be done? I heard they interviewed last week.
  5. Thank you Coach Meador for your 22 years in Lindale. You have had a positive influence on many students over the years. I've seen you working with students at your church, and many hours outside of your job. You care about students, and the lives they live. You have been a blessing to our community of Lindale. Good luck to you and your family wherever you go.
  6. Which assistant would be the replacement?
  7. This is a BIG hit for Lindale. They played some major defense last year, and it won them several games. This DC showed major improvements from the previous couple years of Lindale football. Does anyone know where he is going? I think Coach Meador the HC is an offensive guy, so it will be interesting to see where he goes from here.
  8. That is true, but I believe 3 of those TD for Gladewater were when the second team was in. Gladewater had their twos in, but most were starters because they dont have as many numbers as Lindale to put in a full 2nd team. Lindale looks ok, they just don't have much depth.
  9. That makes sense. I did notice #2 was taken out early, and y'all QB was as well. It's just y'all's backup is a runner, and that is not good for us a lot of the time. I just kept seeing starters on the oline and dline. Y'all's kids play with a lot of class. That was probably the first team I've seen all year not trash talk a whole lot. Good luck to y'all the rest of the year.
  10. Not sure why you would call out a coach and his program that you don't follow closely. I'm assuming you just know a parent of a football player in Lindale that doesn't like the coach, and thinks their son should be playing more.
  11. Lufkin definitely had their starters in. Their starting d-line was in the entire game. The only non starters that I saw was the second oline, and that was the last drive of the game. Meador's son is starting, and he is the best qb in the program right now. That really isn't even a question. He looked really good against Jacksonville and did some good things against Lufkin. He made mistakes, but there aren't many soph who wouldn't against Lufkin.
  12. Lindale is running the ball really well right now. Even against Lufkin they ran the ball effectively. That will give them a chance against Nac. Lindale's new RB has been very impressive the past few weeks.
  13. Lindale did run the same play over and over again. They pulled a guard and ran off tackle all 2nd half. And they continued to do it from only 2 formations many times with the same pre snap motion.
  14. If Lindale can run the ball I think it will be closer than people think. They did some good things running the ball against Corsicana. I like the wildcat look they got into late in the game. Where is blitzem? He had many opinions on Lindale in the summer right before football started.
  15. Many times high school coaches are never given the credit they deserve. Most of the time they are criticized by people in their town who don't even have a clue how much they do for the young men in the school. Today coaches do so much more than just coach and teach. They are fathers, counselors, psychologist, psychiatrist, mentors, and role models. Most never hear or feel any appreciation from the public, but they continue to go to work every year. As the season approaches I would like to leave this for the coaches that get on this board. The Coaches The coach has no place to hide. He cannot just let the job go for a while or do a bad job and assume no one will notice, as most of us can. He cannot satisfy everyone; seldom can he satisfy very many; rarely does he even satisfy himself. If he wins now, he must win the next time too. They plot victories, suffer defeats, endure criticism from within and from without. They neglect their families, travel endlessly, and live alone in a spotlight surrounded by others. Theirs is maybe the worst profession; unreasonably demanding and insecure, and full of unrelenting pressures. Why do they do it? Why do they put up with it? Having seen them hailed as geniuses in gaudy, party like press conferences, and having seen them fired with such pat phrases as "fool" and "incompetent"; I have wondered about them. Having seen them exalted in victory and depressed by defeat, I have sympathized with them. Having seen some broken by the job and others die from it; one is moved to admire them and hope that someday the world will learn to understand them. -Author Unknown To Mike Meador and his staff in my town at Lindale High School... Thank you for all you do for the school and community. Good luck on the season.
  16. Very good coach. Is a great football coach as well.
  17. Wow! Tough schedule. Thanks for filling me in.
  18. Has anyone heard who they are playing in non district? Scrimmages?
  19. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GnflgtwzXfw I think this will work. Keep in mind that Jacksonville just took the lead with around 25 sec left. Playoff spot on the line for the Eagles, and an inside track to the playoffs for the Indians. Thanks KildogDad
  20. Well I wasn't trying to talk bad about the coaching at Jacksonville. They seem to have played some good teams early on, and had some bad luck in district. It seemed that the kids played hard until the end, and in my opinion that is one sign that the coaches are doing the right thing.
  21. Nobody was videoing their son/grandson? I figured someone on this board would have something. I would love to see how Lindale ran their lateral. I think it looked like what Boise St. ran against OU in the Fiesta Bowl a few years back. What did the others at the game think about the ending?
  22. Does anyone have any video footage of the finish to this game? It was one of the best finishes to any football game I've seen. Especially for high school football. Jacksonville fought their tail off to come back, and Lindale had perfect execution to their last 2 plays. It was an incredible game!
