  1. I wish you would have contacted me personally. Smoaky.com took it down but had you contacted me like our rules state on a coaching change you would have been given the credit but I would've called Barry Norton myself to confirm. There's a fine line that most coaching change(s) information on this site from members is legit, unfortunately what ruins it for you and others are the nasty, personal vendetta's throwing out, "Is Coach XYZ really out at School XYZ" and then the blank-storm begins.
  2. It's been awhile since we did this but would like to know if we can compile a list of members who want to be the beat reporter for a specific district and/or team. Your insight and stories, game previews and/or summaries would be featured on a special link on Smoaky.com. Of course I don't have enough money to pay you but there are other ways including gift cards from local restaurants or a Smoaky.com tee-shirt featuring you as a "Beat Reporter." And, if you wear one you can either get a "damn, that's so cool," or you might need to duck. Who knows? But, interested in your feedback. Smoaky

  4. Arp ISD promotes Wes Schminkey to head football coach & A.D.
  5. After 19 years as head coach, 22 years at Arp ISD, athletics director Dale Irwin has announced that he will retire effective June 30, 2022. The 53-year old Irwin is making this decision at this time in order to spend more time with his family. In the 90 year history of Arp High School Tiger football, Irwin is its winningest coach and the longest tenured. This article https://www.arpisd.org/article/708732 has all the information you will need along with a quote, pictures and video that already have the appropriate courtesy burned in. Irwin will continue to lead our student-athletes, and to oversee the transition to a new A.D. until his last day of work. He fully expects Arp Tiger athletics to continue to be strong going forward. The process of finding Irwin's replacement is ongoing. Mike Alzamora Arp ISD Communications Coordinator
  6. I have and I will continue beating the drum that Coach Alexander be elected into the Texas HSFB Hall of Fame, I'm on the committee, I tout his accomplishments all of the time and I'll never give up the fight.
