Smoaky's News & Notes
Smoaky with Earl Campbell, "His Greatest Win in Life"
Friday, 24th August 2012 - 9:52PM
I recently recorded a lengthy interview with a true Texas Legend, the great Tyler Rose, Earl Campbell.
I've been fortunate enough to interview Earl on many occasions, but this is perhaps as upfront and raw as he's ever been about his battle against additions with painkillers and beer.
I hope you enjoy it.

Brett Ratliff out as football coach at New Diana...
Thursday, 12th November 2015 - 6:29PM
I spoke with Brett Ratliff this afternoon and he's been reassigned by the superintendent. Obviously, he was disappointed, but he understands the business.
He will remain as the AD until New Diana I.S.D. hires a new head football coach.
Ratilff was 16-26 in four-years with the Eagles, two playoff teams, but 0-10 in 2015.
Smoaky.com Historical Section Update
Wednesday, 19th August 2015 - 6:24PM
As I try and do throughout and after the high school football season, I've updated each program's historical section, including win-loss record, decade record, playoff appearances and individual records.
While it's next to impossible to have everything, it's not from the lack of trying. And, as I've always said, the records section is a constant, "Work In Progress," so if you see something that's incorrect or something that should be added, EMAIL me at [email protected] or [email protected].
And, here's the link to that section that also includes the latest coaching staff updates:

There are still some programs we're finishing up or haven't heard from so we're working on them too.
