Wow. Was struck by Greenville's lack of participation. Doesn't look good for them at all

 

Glad I wasn't the only one that noticed that. That's terrifying if they're bad (which they are) plus not even physically prepared.

 

I imagine there will be a lot of running clocks in their future.

Hopefully Longview plays them very late in the season so they have time to get their stuff together...

 

2nd district game of the season lol.

Here is a link to all the preseason articles done by the Marshall News Messenger over the summer.

 

http://www.marshallmavericks.net/#!news/c1aog

 

Some good reads there. And some great catch up articles with former QB David Haynes and Super Bowl champ Terrance Shaw.

 

-------------

 

I'll see about getting numbers for the varsity and JV camp. But someone reported we had about 60 freshmen show up yesterday for their camp.

 

I'll see what JV and varsity had tonight (hopefully)

 

Varsity is practicing at night under the lights at Maverick Stadium. Starts at 7PM. Goes until 9 or 10... I can't recall. I'm going to try and make it tonight.

Mentioned a few days ago in another thread that Marshall's number one rival is Hallsville and vice versa. Players at Hallsville and Marshall seem to agree too....battle of Harrison County.

I would agree.

 

Since dropping to 4A.... I'd say Kilgore has been our biggest rival as far as competitiveness. We've split most of our games for the last 12 years. We were the top 2 dogs in the district more often than not. Decided district titles. OT games. And a couple of playoff games against each other too.

 

But Hallsville is the game you do NOT want to lose. Historically Marshall has dominated the series until 2011. A good chunk of their roster are people that grew up in Marshall. So yeah. Familiarity breeds contempt. So I'd agree this is the game the Mavs DO NOT want to lose.

Why do Marshall and Longview always talk (complain) about losing football players to Hallsville? Really? Think about it for a minute. Hallsville is not a football school to lose kids to. Baseball maybe, but certainly not football. Please stop it.

It's not complaining. It's fact. There are several players at Hallsville that went to grade school in Marshall. And Longview as well I'm sure.

 

It's not a slam against Hallsville.... it just is what it is.

Longview did lose a player to Hallsville last year after he lost his position...

 

Stephon Dunn

 

Chumley straight up stole the spot from him. Best decision King has made the past two seasons.

Wasn't throwing him under the bus lol. No shame in losing out when you gave it your best. Chumley just was the better player.

 

He had in a pretty pass in the rain against Marshall....so there's that?
