  1. I saw it on Facebook —- Carthage High School Athletics
  2. 2021 Football schedule has been posted by the athletic department.
  3. They drafted areas of need, with maybe the WR an exception.........Good to see them not draft 2 tight ends or 2 running backs Only time will tell if the ones drafted help out.
  4. Number of wins does not determine how good of a coach a person is or how good of an athletic director he/she is --- In either direction...............8 wins a year at Allen in football is not the same as 8 wins a year at Queen City Talent on the football field and other sports, talent walking the halls of the high school and not playing a single sport, how he/she treats the athletes, how he/she does things in the community, etc all have to be considered.............no matter the school
  5. Now trade 12 to New England for 15 and another 3rd rounder.
  6. 3) Or the 3(maybe 4) replacements don’t play to the caliber of the players from 2020.
  7. I have finally figured out Preston ‘s genius.......all last year he used the junior high ploy of having 12 men on defense......lost 3 full time starters and has 9 full time starters coming back.......absolute genius
  8. For several years I have said if the Jacks could get a serviceable 6’9” or 6’10” guy with a little bulk, they would be a top 30 team most years. Not all world, just a 10 points and 10 rebounds type guy with a couple of blocks a game would work. Maybe Aku could fill that roll.
  9. Just leave 6A the way it is now, just simply change the classification name to 7A...........no squabbling over travel............then divide the lower 5(now) classes into 6 classes - less discrepancies in the sizes of each class than it is now but travel will not change dramatically for most.
  10. 3-4 years ago Griff was not able to make the 1st Quarter of the game.........Worst offensive quarter Carthage has had in the Surratt era..........But the last 3 quarters that night were much much better........Tru storie
  11. 2 P E classes or 2 subject matter classes........Football only or have to assist with a spring sport....... Will make a difference to a lot
  12. 20 years ago, if someone said Tyler boys would finish tied for last and the girls last in this district track meet, they would be looked at as being crazy......…...They have fallen a longggggg way.
  13. What position did the dad want his son to play ?
  14. A 10th grader that breaks 11.00 is fast.....no doubt That being said, in the 100 and 200 at the high school level, a few factors can lead to a better time - handheld timers historically give faster times than automatic timing, wind can help, starters can allow a rolling start
  15. In case you didn’t know......athletes can be developed to be bigger, stronger, and faster........Preston has had a lot of success in track and field - he gets football players faster by having them run track where at a lot of schools they would be home in front of a TV or gaming device .....Weight room workouts at Carthage are well attended year round - bigger and stronger.
  16. With Castles calling the defense instead of Darren Preston, and no Surratt running the offense, the Gilmer game would have been a tossup.
  17. S S would not want a really athletic center or guard, would he ?
  18. D will definitely be good.....But one d-lineman graduating and Coach P probably losing another d-lineman probably will hurt a little, at least for a few games.
  19. Carthage could benefit by the next coach agreeing to play a non-district game between two schools 30 minutes apart.
  20. 1) A not very good one.....or 2) A very young coordinator(age range of 28 - 33 roughly) wanting a stepping stone job.....or 3) A decent one near retirement that just wants to work/coach August to Nov/Dec.
  21. UT women’s basketball coach just might fit in nicely for a few years in Austin. Seems to know how to coach and the young ladies seem to love him.
