  1. Fairfield girls are relentless. Fairfield 78 Buffalo 0, the final from last night lol
  2. 6'1 Bradley, 5'9 Tatum, 5'7 Lloyd, 6'5 Chambers are all sophomores....Whiteus,, a shooter, is just a freshman. 6'3 Sigler, also a stand out who dunked in the Jeffy game is a sophomore as well. Fighting for it as youngsters, the future is bright. The lone senior is 6'7 Caleb Smith.
  3. Tatum finished the first round of district play with a win over Jefferson 79-58 to remain undefeated in district play. Youngsters have come a long way since the season began. Tatum is the clear #1 with Jefferson being the definite clear #2 team.
  4. Tatum will return a stud backfield in Co-MVP QB Watson and all three 1st Team RBs Gonzalez, Mimbs, and Sigler. As well as 2nd Teamer WR Chambers and OL Cook. Will bring back Defensive Newcomer of the year Cayden Tatum and 1st Team DB Gonzalez. 1st Team Kicker Giani Garza will return as well. Good group for Keeling to build around. District Champ JV moving up to fill the holes.
  5. 1 senior on the team. Tatum is starting 5 sophomores with 4 freshmen getting playing time. Tatum is now 4-0 in district play with a 49-42 win over Troup, 67-43 win over EF, 75-33 win over Waskom, and a 67-55 win over WR. Tatum will play Arp(1-15) next then have a big match up against Jefferson who is 16-4(4-0). Jefferson beat EF 51-31, beat Waskom 56-33, beat WR 55-40, and beat Arp 90-47. Should be a solid competitive game between Tatum and Jefferson.
  6. He'd definitely be a step up.
  7. With success comes envy. Only teams that are unconditionally loved by their area are Cinderella Stories. Wasn't a single person in East Texas secretly wishing for Harmony to lose last night. Let em win a couple titles and be a deep playoff contender consistently.....Harmony would be the next added to the hate list. It is what it is. I will say though.....in the Texas High School Scoreboard Facebook group.....yalls fans on there make it real easy to hate on yall lol. Making excuses in a win like "it really shoulda been 42-14 but we turned it over too much". That'll gain some hate quick. Lol , I mean....that game was one unforced turnover on the last drive from being GR vs Wimberly in the final. A whole lot of factors came into play to make that ending the way it was...turnovers by both played a key role to the finish. And yes Carthage woulda faired much better without the turnovers. But turnovers are apart of the game. Glen Rose got hot in the 2nd half and that stretch was worrisome for yall fans....I know it had to be. Hell, I was worried watching it on NFHS and I ain't even from Carthage lol. Bottom line....the Dawgs prevailed.....its in the books.....and #9 in on the horizon.
  8. I aint got no giddy up. Been off my hitch for 3 days. Was so damn ready to sleep in and catch up. Day 1, my wife's little Shih Tzu/Pug mix woke me up at 2:30am scratching his back on my bedroom door and grunting loud as hell. Couldnt go back to sleep. Day 2.....Dog does it again at 3:30am. Day 3, my 7 year old throws a fit at 4:30am cuz we won't let her get in the bed with us after waking up and going to the bathroom. Couldn't fall back asleep, again. I swear I'd drown the little sucker if I could get away with it. The dog.....not the kid. I kinda like the kid. The dog? Let's just say I've day dreamed many ways to "accidentally" let him either run away or have a little play time in the street. I hate that little worthless ball of hair almost as much as he hates me.
  9. Lol shut up. He is breaking the mold and we're so used to it as East Texas Football fans that we overlook just how great his career actually is.
  10. I think he could do it anyways. Aint Kyler Murray like 5'3? lol QB13 was tough man.....I think he'd make a D1 school an exceptional slot receiver if nothing else. Quick, elusive, and has just an overall great knowledge of the game it seems. He's got Texas Tech/Bill Belichick written all over him imo. A little Wes Welker/Danny Amendola/Cole Beasley in the making if given the chance, I think.
  11. Yup. There's so much hate for them which is another indicator. It's lonely at the top sometimes. People are just used to Surratt and the Bulldogs winning and while Carthage reloads yearly, it takes a special kind of coach and staff to implement a program that is able to do this. They run the same offensive scheme from 7th grade all the way to varsity. Those kids have lived and breathed that offense for 3 to 5 years and know exactly what to do the very first day they step foot on the field as a varsity player. Surratt is in elite company as a coach and has the most impressive resume of all time as a Texas High School football coach in my opinion. He's tied for 2nd all time in most Texas State Championships won...thats not the impressive part though. Surratt has won 8 titles in a mere 15 seasons of coaching. The only other coach with 8 Titles won them over the span of a 45 year coaching career. The most Texas titles won by a coach is 9 and that was over the span of a 43 year coaching career. It's not likely that Surratt coaches high school football for 43 to 45 years lol, but if he did.....he'd be on pace to win roughly 3 times as many titles as the two greatest Texas High School football coaches in the history of the game in terms of titles won. And that, my friend, is the impressive part. When you break it down and look at it that way....what Surratt is doing is just unrealistic. We're all just used to him winning a large amount of titles and it doesn't seem like anything special to anyone anymore at this point, it's just expected now. But its not until you run the numbers, do you see how unbelievably great his coaching career truly is. It's just insane. *Disclaimer* - I'm not riding Surratt's jock......I'm simply just giving credit where I see greatness.
  12. Great season, Harmony. Will be interesting to see if Jenkins can have Harmony in contention on a regular basis. One would think it could be a possibility considering he broke the mold year 1 and went 2 rounds further than any other Harmony team in history......congrats on the story book season and what appears to be a very successful staff hiring.
  13. I under-estimated Brock. Malakoff, who I thought was the most complete team left in 3A D1, didn't score an offensive touchdown against Brock. I expected Mally to win....their offense was popping on all cylinders and their defense looked stingy as hell. Brock doing them the way they did was impressive. Franklin is gonna be tough. This could be a 24-21 type game.
  14. Glen Rose didn't really have any studs pop out at you like they're gonna see in Wimberly. What Glen Rose had was a defense that played with extreme discipline, a somewhat talented RB that ran with a purpose, a heady QB that played well beyond his size and talent level, and a strong desire to win at all costs. If they had lined up against any other 4A D2 team tonight....they win. Perfect concoction, they had. Wimberly is gonna have much more talent across the board but I think Carthage will handle them much easier than the team that graced the field with them tonight. Just my opinion.....the wake-up call factor will be in full effect and nothing will be taken for granted.....Surratt and co will make sure of it, I'm sure. Unfortunately for Wimberly, Glen Rose just made sure the Dawgs will be wide eyed and bushy tailed at Jerry's World.
  15. Well, one would assume you're rolling with Franky......I'll roll with Brock. Winner buys the loser a Moon Pie and a RC Cola?
  16. Franklin isn't 15-0 with Brock's schedule.....thats all I'm saying
  17. I usually tend to agree with you on most occasions.....but I dunno about the walking off with it without the terrible fumbles. 13 had his way, yall had no answer for him for the most part and they were resilient. I think yall woulda won easier for sure but nothing about that team and how they played makes me think they wouldn't have scratched and clawed to stay in it as opposed to letting yall run away with it. That team wanted it bad and gained a ton of respect imo. That last fumble was a Christmas present that yall got to unwrap early. Now with all that being said.....Carthage stepped up in adversity and found a way to close the door. Haven't had to battle like that this year....was good for them to get a little scare. I got Dawgs by 14 at Daddy Jerry's house. Go Dawgs.....go get #9.
  18. Woodville, Mexia, Diboll, Jasper Or Pleasant Grove(4 rounds deep), Wichita Falls Hirshi, Wimberley(4A D2 Finals), Gunter(3A D2 Finals) Is one of those non-district skeds not glaringly "harder"?
  19. Didn't start out 0-4 though.
  20. Man, Bussey is unreal. 77 total TDs this season is just ridiculous.
