Dream matchups you'd like to see your high school football team play?

Dawgs weren't as talent rich this season as some past teams, but it's not like Surratt & Co didn't have some studs on the field.

Agree. But Pack made the statement that we weren't as loaded with talent as the other state champions. Me and Dawgnation just agreed with him. You gotta remember how loaded those teams were before. Just think about the recent state championship team before this one in 2013. Our players were just better than everybody else's. That team destroyed some good teams in the playoffs. In 6 games in the playoffs they out scored opponents 255-85. Including blow outs over Mexia, Navasota, Silsbee, and La Grange on the way to a championship. Only close games were WOS and Kilgore, and they were both still 2 score wins. That was a very mature team full of 3 year starters. This season just looked different than the norm in Carthage. I understand people saying that. That team in 2013 had 4 D1 players on offense alone. That's just unheard of at the 4a level. So I just see where people are coming from saying that about this years team. This was young team. But they had plenty of studs and played with more determination and grit than any team to come thru here. I think that is why so many people loved this years Carthage team. Hell they were underdogs in almost every playoff game. That is just usually not the case.

And they would have gotten destroyed by 6 or 7 TDs. Nobody on that defense was stopping McGee or Ivory, and Kilgore offense wasnt moving the ball on Cortez Beall and those boys.

No.  And I have TREMENDOUS respect for Carthage. 

I wish we could have seen end of the season 2008 Carthage versus Longview, DeSoto, Southlake Carroll, etc   Dwight Smith behind that offensive line, and Si Blackshire and his receiving corp. Then ad

While Carthage still has all of this talent, I don't understand why Marshall and Carthage won't work something out...

I totally agree we usually play Nacogdoches every year we should take them off the schedule and replace them with Marshall

Dwight Smith behind that offensive line, and Si Blackshire and his receiving corp. Then add that nasty '08 Dawg defense. That team was so loaded on both sides of the ball, and again we had Dwight Smith running the football. You watch high school football today and there are no players like him.

 

I went back and watched some old footage of Dwight Smith Man let me tell you the young man was phenomenal! He was 215lbs to 220lbs blazing speed Breakaway speed quick first step quick to the line of scrimmage could run you over could make you miss also, could catch the ball out of the backfield. The young should be playing on Sundays! He's not only the best running back to come through Carthage in my opinion he's one of the best to do it in high school period.

That Dwight Smith was something else. Hey, we've found a new thread topic.

 

Rank the best Carthage Bulldog running backs of all time.

 

I'll have to think about the list before posting on the topic though.

Some schools should play for geography purposes like Chapel hill vs Arp

Carlisle vs Troup Overton vs West Rusk, Spring Hill vs Pine Tree. Some should play for competitive Gilmer vs Kilgore , Marshall vs Carthage, Henderson vs Gilmer , Marshall vs Nac .
