  1. Last week, Coach Surratt talked about Si Blackshire playing almost his entire senior season with a torn ACL. As most of you know, Si was the QB of the first state championship team in 2008. A very interesting story…
  2. Posts on the Carthage game threads are about as rare as teams outside Carthage's district willing to schedule a non-district game with them.
  3. Any news from yesterday's Chalk Talk at CHS?
  4. I agree that Gilmer will be a heavy favorite. They'll score 60+ against Center.
  5. Roscoe later played RB at TCU and was a member of their championship sprint relay team that I believe set a world record. Obviously, he is a member of the CHS Athletic Hall of Honor.
  6. RUSK (4-2, 1-1) Aug. 26 defeated Fairfield 35-3 Sept. 2 defeated Crockett 53-21 Sept. 9 defeated Athens 45-42 [Athens (2-5) lost to Henderson last Friday 35-49; it was Henderson's first win of the season.] Sept. 16 lost to Alvarado 21-31 [Alvarado is 3-4 after losing to China Spring 17-59 last Friday.] Sept. 30 defeated Center 40-35 Oct. 7 lost to Van 19-28 Rusk is scoring 35.5 points per game and allowing 26.7 points per game.
  7. Having the two fastest kids in the program - Paddie and Edwards - back there together could be fun…except that the opponent would probably do a sky kick to the 30 or 35 rather than kick it to one of them.
  8. CANTON (2-4, 0-2) Aug 26 won over Mineola 34-27 Sep 2 lost to Winnsboro 37-62 Sep 9 lost to Caddo Mills 13-31 Sep 16 won over Mabank 35-7 Sep 23 lost to Center 0-52 Sep 30 lost to Van 0-45 Averaging 20 points a game Average points given up 37+ a game
  9. At the time they were scheduled (and even afterward until Carthage beat them convincingly), Kilgore was ranked in the state’s Top 10 in Class 4A’s larger division. Marshall has an amazing record for number of recent playoff appearances in Class 5A. And who knew at the time they were scheduled that they wouldn’t be as strong this year as expected? In order to have 10 games on the regular-season schedule this year -for the first time in several years- Carthage had to schedule a team from San Antonio. Everyone is looking forward to see what happens in a couple of months when Gilmer and/or Pleasant Grove are the opponents. Both of them have been scheduled in non-district in recent years and would have been again this year if they weren’t now in the same region and looming in the regional playoffs.
  10. I believe his exact words in describing Center's QB were "elite, elite, elite".
  11. A poll would be very enlightening...if it was for which restaurant to eat at before the game.
  12. In the season opener, Bullard beat Mabank, which turned around the next week and beat Brownsboro. So Brownsboro's chance this week against Carthage is less than 0.5%? Or does the home field advantage mean their chance this week is the same as visiting Bullard's was last week?
  13. That's not what Carthage Coach Scott Surratt says!
  14. I understand that both of these teams have outstanding high school QBs. Would be interested in learning more about them from knowledgeable fans of their teams.
  15. Although I haven’t seen any of them this year, I imagine all the district opponents will have trouble running their offense against the Bulldogs’ defensive front. And with 3 of the front 4 being sophomores, this could be true for another couple of seasons.
  16. The 2009 group (Cutter Clinton, one of Kemmy Henderson's sons, et al.) also ranks up there. They had several 3-year starters, as I recall.
  17. The biggest surprise to me about CHS thus far this season is the defense - specifically, the defensive line. All of last year’s starters on that unit were seniors and had to be replaced. Three of tonight’s four starters on that unit are only sophomores. They are doing a great job…and they should only get better.
  18. The wide receiver unit is the strongest strength of the Bulldogs.
  19. Has anyone seen Longview's freshman team this year? Wondering how they compare to Carthage's...lol
  20. Either the Panola Watchman or Larry Allen, the “ Voice of the Bulldogs “, had Cuff at 30-35 after the first two games. If LNJ is correct, he was 12-26 last week. I believe he started out 7-17 against Cornerstone. If so, that means he went 5-9 after that, which seems reasonable to me…but I could be wrong about last week.
  21. The Longview News Journal shows Cuff being 42-61 for 849 yards.
  22. I agree. It would be interesting to see how the two teams match up. Additionally, it would be fun to watch Coach Surratt's present school go against his former school, where he was Offensive Coordinator for a state championship team.
  23. Watch it…you’re going to upset the Kilgore fans.
