  1. Was looking at Harelton's roster other day. Looked to be fairly young with more underclassmen that Jr/Srs. Go Wildcats!!!!
  2. Harelton ... 6 Shiner ....... 0 Lightning delay Stay focused and hold that lead young men! Bring that GOLD back to East Texas!!
  3. I don't see the number dropping. Also last numbers I got I think Alto will be a Division 2 school. Only time will tell of course, but I do know their numbers have been under the 164.5 or so since February 2021. Last number I got was around 158.
  4. True Blue, Who are some of the current D1 teams will drop to D2 do you think?
  5. Well last night started off with a bang (played Rusk) and my understanding errors took over. No excuses errors are part of the game, and one can hurt you, but multiple ones can get you beat roughly. Our current losses are to Quitman, Lindale, Pollock Central, and Rusk all being 3A and up. We did have a huge win over Willis Point last weekend which at the time was ranked #3 in 4A but then feel to #11. The girls will get better, and I think only have 2 or 3 Srs on the team that I'm aware. I'm looking forward just how far they can take this year. Goooooooooooooooo Ladyjackets!!!
  6. Them Ladyjackets are tough this year! It's been awhile since they made a trip to Austin! One game at a time thou!!!
  7. As an Alto fan, it still disappoints me for these kids. The guys went out every week and played their hearts out with total pride for their school and community. Were 13 points from being 10-0 instead of 7-3. Actually could've won each of these games. The school district numbers in Feb when realignment came out were below the cut-offs. Their numbers remained under that cut-off even when the new school year started. Last I heard those numbers were still under the cut-off. We will bounce back, and when we do teams better expect a challenge from them Yellowjackets!!!!!
  8. Pulling for my mom's High School in her memory. Miss you mom! Gooooooooooooooooooooooo Mustangs!!!!!
  9. Man, I sure have missed those playoff games. Wonder what we would have done?
  10. Being an Alto alumni, I only got one more thing to say about this matter. I'm so very proud of the coaches and the effort these great kids put forth knowing they were only had 10 games to play this year. Extremely proud of each and every one of them. I was in attendance last Thursday night, and it was a "WOW" of a game that was worth the price of admission. It's ALWAYS a good day to be a JACKET!!!! To my understanding, when these allegations were brought to the attention of the UIL in May, Alto was already under the D2 cut-off, and started the 2022-2023 school under the cut-off number as well. I believed at end of football season Alto had an enrollment of 158 kids in grades 9th-12th. So, folks it still hurts bc in fact when the allegations did come out Alto was in fact a D2 school, and remain a D2 school. Onto to basketball we go, and we are looking to make a push for those playoffs in round ball...GO JACKETS GO!!
  11. I think these Wortham fans should be a little worried. Heck they ain't (sorry for usage) done anything since the days Leonard Davis was on the team. Think that team played at Student Field if mind is still thinking logically. Maybe they got a little something over that way, that I wasn't looking at beginning of the season. Promise you thou, they don't want them Carlisle Indians!!!
  12. I know I'm gonna have some massive tears and actually wiped away tears from my eyes just a few minutes ago.
  13. I have found the UIL is very inconsistent in their punishments. This being about football and not subject at hand basketball. Example: Richland Springs a traditional power in what used to be known as 6 man (now 1A) coach was suspended for 3 years, but the Richland Springs football teams continues to march their way through the playoffs and possibly a State Championship run. In my eyes recruiting is an intentional act to be successful and win at all means.
  14. Upullinmychain, I wasn't referring to you or any other of our brothers and sisters from Carlisle. I know y'all know exactly what we went through that night as the same goes for Mount Enterprise understands bc they were there when DeVonte went down. Y'all have never looked down on us or these kids, and you were the first the question who was the responsible for as you called it donkey punch before the season could get started. It's like our kids have a target on their backs, and the refs are looking for anything to call. On some of the calls, yes sir I will be the first to say it needs to be called, and bring that one of the game and make him think about what actions that might have resulted in that six or seven points. When a whistle is blown for some reason and the ref has his hands up waving off the play, you better let off your momentum or make a decision to change direction. As for as the personal foul on a jersey take down, I do not and will side with the officials. I know for a fact when I was going up and down the field with the team late in the game, I saw our QB get brought down with hands clearly on his facemask with no calls. You keep posting brother, I actually like reading your post! You keep it entertaining even thou we know every week is week closer to end of our the season! Hopefully my Cowboys will save this weekend gloom I'm in.
  15. That was a colossal meltdown. I was having that meltdown with them walking up and field with them trying to encourage 4 quarters of football. I will say we have extra eyes on us this year, and some one needs to let these boys know every personal foul called whether intentional or not is gonna be reported to the UIL. Standing up at the fence (bc I sure couldn't sit myself down) I saw that young man come off the field point to his chest then collapsing.....My head just dropped thinking I wasn't there the night DeVonte went down but I was there when Cam went down, and I told myself I never ever wanted to witness anything remotely close to that again. He gave a thumbs up as he left on the stretcher, and I am thankful for that, but until folks have witnessed what Alto folks have been through I don't know ever want to hear anyone bad mouthing my school or the community. My little 4'11 frame will go some kinda crazy on you. I'm a good person, but with what individuals did to these kids they feel the world is against them. I will not take not one thing from Tenaha they didn't give up, but we honestly had that win in the column, and we just let it slip away.
  16. Yes, I'm still highly upset to this situation with Alto. Just hate it for those kids as they are playing some real good ball and are good kids!! Actually makes me sick to my stomach knowing they or the coaches had nothing to do with this matter, and are the ones being punished!
  17. Sparks will definitely fly. We have quite a few weapons to throw at them Wildcats!!! Then again, I'm sure Mount Enterprise hasn't played against a defense like Alto's either!! The JACKETS will be fired up for the home crowd!!!
  18. I've actually enjoyed the couple of times we've played at "The Pit"
