  1. Coach Surratt told the radio audience he wasn’t happy with the lack of pass rush in the first half. I suspect the next thing he did was to so inform the team.
  2. Rusk fans: After playing both Center and Van the past 2 weeks, which one do you think will be undefeated in district play when Carthage meets them in 1 and 2 weeks, respectively?
  3. Over 50 years ago, Kent Aldridge and Lemon Boyd - who were likely kin to 2 of the 3 mentioned above - joined Marshall Johnson (later an NFL player) to form a terrific backfield for the 1970 Fightin’ Indians.
  4. For those of you who find comparative scores meaningful, Rusk lost to Center by 28 points in the district opener and to Van by 32 points last Friday. Perhaps Van by 3 at home this week?
  5. I find it mildly interesting that Rusk lost by a larger margin to Van last week (3-35) than they did to Center the week before (48-76).
  6. Carthage’s 3rd-string RB could start for most of the teams they have played this year.
  7. Wow! Maybe there will be a Carthage-Spring Hill playoff game after all.
  8. And the TDS were 37 yards (rushing) and 81 yards (pass reception).
  9. Since Carthage is a prohibitive favorite in this one, let me pose a few questions: 1. Matlock got 3 touches last week. Will that increase this week? If so, by how much? 2. Will Canton’s D try to take away the pass or the run? 3. What color helmet and pants should Carthage wear this week? 4. What is the over/under for number of points to be scored in this one? 5. What is the over/under for number of plugs Larry Allen gives to next Monday’s Chalk Talk during the broadcast?
  10. You hit the nail on the head. Assuming the injury bug is over, these are the things that are most concerning. If one or both happen against the wrong team (e.g., Pleasant Grove), there could be an unhappy ending.
  11. Actually, it was his 2nd carry of the game. He fumbled a pitch on the first one. But it’s still a tremendous comeback from his injury!
  12. Other than those already mentioned from Carthage, an outstanding RB between the Reynolds and Surratt years was Jamon Edwards. His sophomore son K.J. has already received several DI offers. Is said to have 5-star potential.
  13. Yes, Johnny Balous was yet another great RB who played under Sleepy Reynolds. He played junior college football (Navarro, I think) and then at Oklahoma, where he was a linebacker. Kris Briggs also belongs on this list. After playing for Sleepy Reynolds at CHS, he went to SMU, where he gained more than 2,000 yards over his 4-year collegiate career.
  14. There were many outstanding RBs under Sleepy Reynolds. George Johns in the late 70s was certainly among the best, if not at the top of the list. He was named 1st team All-State in his senior year. A few years later, Roscoe Tatum was a standout. In addition to playing football at TCU, he was a member of two NCAA championship sprint relay teams at TCU. Under Coach Surratt, Keaontay Ingram certainly deserves a mention. He was on two state championship teams at Carthage. After playing at both UT and Southern Cal, he is now a member of the Arizona Cardinals. Got a few carries for them last week in their win over America’s Team.
  15. Due to questions about the jump in his ACT scores, he wasn’t cleared to play at TCU in time to play in his freshman year. The following spring, he was the star of the spring game. Those who were there said he (as a freshman) looked like a man among boys. Unfortunately, he injured his knee -at the end of that game, I believe- and never played a game at TCU.
  16. Yeah, Anthony got to rest his arm that night for the next week’s game at Jerry World.
  17. No, you’re confused. This was the deal that he was prepared to offer Henderson if they had answered any of his phone calls.
  18. I did at 9:51 Monday night. What a competitor he was! Threw 6 TD passes in the 2010 state championship win over Coldspring.
  19. Any news to report from Coach Surratt’s Chalk Talk today?
  20. Joe played TE as a sophomore and junior. QB those years was Larry Brown, who played at Arkansas.
  21. How about James Street in the 60s (starting QB for the national champion Texas Longhorns under Darrell Royal) or Jeb Blount in the early 70s (played at Tulsa and in the NFL)?
