  1. Carthage had a head coach in the early 70s - it was NOT Sleepy Reynolds - whose teams chanted “Hit ! Hit! Kill!” before games and nobody seemed to care. I wonder if that was because society was so different back then…or because his career record at Carthage was only 10-19-1.
  2. This leads to the obvious question: How bad do you think the 2020 Carthage team would have beaten this year’s Gilmer team?
  3. I’ve been getting ready for this one since August…or before!
  4. He has a son who is a sophomore. Played JV during the regular season and is now with the varsity for the playoffs.
  5. Since the start of the 2016 season, Carthage is 96-4 (.960) with 4 state championships (2016, 2017, 2019 & 2020). The Bulldogs also lost once in the state semifinals (2018). During this same period, Gilmer is 78-20 (.788). The Buckeyes lost twice in the state championship game (2020 & 2021) and lost once in the state semifinals (2016).
  6. Hard to catch it when 3 eventual DI players are triple-covering you - Ed Pope (Texas A&M), Kendall Thompson (University of Texas) & Jalen Claiborne (Wyoming).
  7. When needed, this All-State Running Back also played Defensive End.
  8. In his senior season of 2010, Hunter Holland was named 1st Team All-State by the Texas Sportswriters Association. This was the 3rd consecutive year CHS had a TWSA 1st Team All-State running back. Holland had 231 yards on 23 carries and 3 touchdowns against Henderson in the Bulldogs’ 43-33 win over the then 8th-ranked and unbeaten Lions. Henderson eventually won the state championship in Class 3A Division I that season. Carthage won the state championship that season in Class 3A Division II, which was its 3rd consecutive state title. Against Dallas Madison in the regional semi-finals, Holland had 245 yards on 30 carries and scored 2 touchdowns in the Bulldogs’ 42-13 win. In perhaps CHS’s most exciting game ever, Holland had 307 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 35-28 win over previously undefeated and number 1-ranked Brownwood in the state semifinals.
  9. O’Bryan (Wheatie) Washington was named 1st Team All-State in Class 3A by the Texas Sportswriters Association in 2009. He had 1,801 yards on 227 carries, an average of 7.9 yards per carry. He scored 13 touchdowns. Two of his blockers on the O-line were also 1st Team All-Staters - Cutter Clinton and Kendrick Henderson. The latter’s father, Kemmy, was one of the great CHS RBs during Coach Sleepy Reynolds’ tenure. CHS D-lineman DeShun Williams was also 1st team All-State in 2009.
  10. “Spring Hill” being mentioned in a thread on Carthage & Gilmer…what’s wrong with this picture? Lol
  11. Medrano needs some practice kicking field goals. CHS may need him to make some before the playoffs are over.
  12. I think the fact there was a great likelihood that they would be meeting in the playoffs - this year and next - is the reason they didn’t again schedule each other in non-district.
  13. Yes, whether winning at a 97.9% clip or a 96.0% clip, they are both amazing.
  14. 92-2 since 2 consecutive losses to begin district play in 2016
  15. I don’t either. Waxahachie, yes. Midlothian (Heritage), yes. Corsicana, yes. But I don’t recall CHS ever playing Ennis.
  16. LB Viencint Cabada and safety Zsema’d Williams were RBs last year. DE/TE Kadadriane Bell played only (or mostly) offense last year, including some time at RB. That’s 3 of the 11 starters this year. Three other defensive starters (2 D-linemen and a LB) are sophomores. In addition, reserve DL Zane Schumacher was an offensive lineman last year (at least for the most part).
  17. Interesting…but no mention of Region 1. They will have a team playing in the semifinals.
  18. Isn’t it the Ragin’ Cajuns, the school in Lafayette, rather than ULM?
  19. CHS under Surratt has played a few games on Saturday. China Spring at The Star in 2016 and Giddings in Corsicana in 2008 are a couple of examples.
  20. The Van Alstyne Panthers are 7-4, with only 1 win over a team that is now over .500. They have won 6 of their last 7 games. VAN ALSTYNE Lost 36-39 to Pottsboro, a 3A D1 team that beat Gladewater 33-14 in bi-district Thursday Won 30-26 over Frisco Lebanon Trail, a 5A D1 team that was 1-9 this season Lost 25-68 to Anna, a 4A D1 team that is currently 11-0 Lost 15-45 to Sulphur Springs, a 4A D1 team that was 7-4 and lost its bi-district game last night to Dallas Carter 33-37 Won 32-27 over Krum (3-7) in the district opener Won 52-35 over Sanger (7-4), which lost its bi-district game last night to undefeated Caddo Mills 55-69 Lost 14-35 to Aubrey (9-2) in the game that ultimately determined the district championship Won 53-10 over Farmersville (2-8) Won 38-13 over Bridgeport (4-6) Won 65-18 over Gainesville, which won its 5th game of the season last night 35-24 over Sunnyvale in bi-district Won 55-28 over Quinlan Ford (5-6) last night in bi-district The Panthers average scoring almost 38 points per game. They allow more than 31 points per game.
  21. How many freshmen suited out for CHS last night, and how many got to go into the game? Names and positions would be appreciated.
  22. Second sign that a bi-district game isn't going to be competitive: when the second biggest topic is where to dine before the game
  23. Sign that a bi-district game isn’t going to be competitive: when the biggest topic is whether the freshman QB, who has never suited up for a varsity game, will suit up and make his varsity debut.
