  1. I’m interested in knowing whether the two of you prefer for your teams to win that big matchup, which would require them to play Carthage, or lose it and avoid having to play Carthage.
  2. Dwight Smith played one year at a small Arkansas college alongside his high school QB, Si Blackshire.
  3. Of Carthage’s starting front 7, 4 of them started last year as sophomores. Marshall didn’t score against Carthage last year. The CHS front 7 have played 16 games since then, all of which were victories. It’s hard to envision Marshall scoring more than 2 touchdowns in this year’s game.
  4. 9 of this year’s defensive starters are underclassmen.
  5. CHS’s 1st team offense didn’t play a snap in the 2nd half. I believe the Bulldogs’ 1st team defense played only the 1st series in the 2nd half.
  6. Carthage wins handily and ups its overall record to 99-2 since the October 2016 loss to Kilgore.
  7. Wasn’t Del Shofner once a Center Roughrider?
  8. CARTHAGE DL Richard “Bud” Marshall: Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers (1965) Atlanta Falcons & Washington Redskins (1966) Houston Oilers (AFL) (1967 & 1968) DB Audrey McMillian: Houston Oilers (1985-1988) Minnesota Vikings (1989-1993) 1st Team All-Pro (1992) DB John Booty: New York Jets (1988-1990) Philadelphia Eagles (1991-1992) Phoenix Cardinals (1993) New York Giants (1994) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1995) RB Keaontay Ingram: Phoenix Cardinals (2022-present)
  9. I don’t think going 2 deep will be very satisfying to the Gilmer faithful.
  10. Won’t know until later tonight (or early in the morning)
  11. Believe it or not, there was a time when the Carthage Bulldogs didn’t score a single point in their first 4 games…but scored on a 90+ yard hook & ladder play in the last minute of their 5th game to upset the defending state champion Palestine Wildcats In Palestine. The year was 1965. Carthage had previously scored for the first time all year a few minutes earlier. The final score was 14-13 (or something close to that). The winning TD was scored by sophomore RB Pat Browning, who later was an Assistant Principal at CHS for many years.
  12. One of the last years they played - maybe the very last year - the two teams met twice. The Lions scored a total of 1 TD in the two games…and that was on a kickoff return.
  13. When these two teams stopped being in the same district, Henderson elected to decline Carthage’s offer to play a nondistrict game.
  14. Carthage @ Kilgore The host team, which perennially makes the playoffs, won 3 playoff games last year in 4ADI and will be looking for revenge for last year’s season-opening embarrassment. Carthage, the defending 4ADII state champion, is having to replace a lot of talent at the skill positions.
  15. Regarding promising Carthage High School golfers, the only one who qualified for the state golf tournament this spring was Coach Darren Preston’s son, who was a sophomore at the time. He will be a wide receiver this fall.
  16. Carthage went 0 for 4 in the 7-on-7 state tournament today and yesterday. The “rest of the state” can rejoice…for the next couple of months, anyway.
  17. Although the 2012 & 2018 teams come to mind first as the answer to the question posed in the thread title, two other teams deserve consideration even though they didn’t get to the state semifinals. The 2011 team was going for a 4-peat and fell to eventual state runner-up Argyle by a single point in 2 overtimes in the regional semifinals. This was the first of the three years in which Blake Bogenschutz was the starting CHS QB. He is the only sophomore to start at QB under Coach Surratt…but that statement probably won’t be true much longer. Coach Surratt’s first CHS team in 2007 had a lot of talent. Although they lost by 27 to eventual state champion Liberty Hill in the second round, that was arguably the toughest playoff game LH had in successfully defending their 2006 state championship. (LH won the 2007 state championship game against Gilmer by 25.) If this group had played under Coach Surratt for more than one season, it would have been very interesting to see what they would have done.
  18. On the final play, Brownwood threw into the end zone to their best player, Jaxon Shipley. No one was surprised, including the Carthage defense, which had 3 future D1 players covering him - Ed Pope (A&M), Jalon Claiborne (Wyoming), and Kendall Thompson (later a teammate of Shipley’s at UT).
  19. I don’t know about the linemen, but it appears the upcoming sophomore class will have major contributors in 2023 at QB, RB, WR, TE, & LB.
