No way, our defense was too awesome with those linebackers and DB’s. That Gilmer O would’ve been slowed WAY down.

D-Line was good too. 
 

Carthage rattles off 35 unanswered against a pretty good Bucks team that went 10-3. Did it in the 2nd half. That team pounded good teams. Only hiccup game was LE for whatever reason.

I agree 2017 would have won 5a probably beats Highland Park def beats Aledo/College station by 21. @CarthDawg77 @DawgNation2015

Kennedale looked like Chapel Hill no contest and they're still recovering from that.

They wouldn’t have beat HP or Manvel, but I truly believe they would’ve smoked Aledo or CS. I watched all those games.    And please PG fans don’t mention PG. That would’ve been an absolute sla

No. Hell no!! I really enjoyed watching that 2014 Gilmer team. Went and watched them 3 times. 

But there has never been a small school with a team like Carthage had in 2017. Elite everywhere. Mykel Gates and Ahmad Brown at LB were both 6’ 225-230, playing like they had kids to feed. That was the most complete small school team I have ever seen. Even in the Gilmer game they were down 28-13 I think at half and won 48-28. I mean who does that? That was a decent Gilmer team too. I have never seen a team that could do all the things they did. That playoff run was insane. What they did against Silsbee in the 1st half should be illegal. Set offensive records in the championship game. 
 

Only place Gilmer might have had an advantage was at QB. Just cause y’alls kid was a senior. That’s it. 

Great post, spot on, 100%!

You are joking, I’m dead serious. 

That was most likely the very best linebacker corp to ever play at the 4A level. They were elite.

The DB unit, awesome. The DL, awesome.

We haven’t even talked about the offensive juggernaut yet. 
 

‘17 Carthage was the best 4A team ever.

Most definitely they really should make a movie or a documentary about them . Worse than Dallas Carter in the 80s.

Gilmer dropped a TD pass to potentially go up 35 to 13.  If Gilmer would have scored then that greatest team ever would have shut it down.

Gilmer got dominated in the 2nd half.

Hahaha!! Yea right. Carthage wasn’t getting beat that year, period. Carthage made Gilmer look like a pee wee team in the 2nd half. Shut them out and held them to like 80 yards or something. Domination.

In that Gilmer game Surratt was trying to get Capps going in his 1st big game. It was great experience for him. But he played pretty bad. Then 2nd half, SS dialed up Keaontay’s number. It was all but over. Plus defense locked down in the 2nd half. That was a fun game.

48-28, and that guy is talking about a dropped TD pass. Hahaha! Where were the other 2 TD coming from?

They weren’t coming, the Carthage defense was balling.

I think that’s up for debate. I know how many points Gilmer scored and the kids they had, but I would take Carthage’s offense. I think Carthage had the better O-Line, better WR corps as a whole, and Keaontay. Defense wasn’t close. Gilmer played a weak schedule, and gave up the same amount of points as Carthage over 16 games.
