  1. Yes, he was the DC, powerlifting coach, track coach.
  2. Setxsports is reporting that Tod Stark has been named AD/HFC at Hemphill.
  3. Good hire for SA! Tori will do very well.
  4. You make some very valid points and I do not disagree with some of what you are saying. In my profession I have hired many folks that have been extremely successful that on paper were "less qualified" for a particular position than other applicants. This may not seem "fair" to some but I did what was best for my company. However, there are other factors that can be and are more important qualities than job history or even educational achievements. Again, this is just my opinion.
  5. What makes anyone else more qualified for the job than Barnes? He has been with SA through many, many very successful seasons. Has coached and learned under some of the best coaches in the business. He has learned from Lynn Graves, Donald Hubbard, and Marty Murr (very impressive list of mentors). Maybe there will be some applicants that have been an AD at other schools or even larger schools. Do those qualifications outweigh stability in an already successful program with a guy that is a lifelong resident, young guy that has proven that he wants to stay at home, knows the kids, and is res
  6. This is what I have heard to. I think it would be a very good move for SA. The kids respect Barnes and he is a good coach. It's time for him to have it!
  7. Those districts that you are referencing had schools very similar in size to WS. Talent wise and number wise they were where they needed to be. At any rate, I believe that IF he has the community support he will succeed. Regardless of what either of us believes it is now up to Wallace and Shelbyville to prove one of us right and the other wrong!
  8. It has been a struggle but they seem to have some athletes year after year????
  9. I actually think he will be just fine and succeed in SV. He was at West Sabine during their good years as an assistant and inherited the program after graduating a bunch of extordinarily good 2A level players. He has not had any dominant athletes since his promotion to AD/HFC but has still managed winning records and/or playoff appearances. I think he has done very well for a guy with 25 average or below average players (athletically speaking). He had been a part of making these average players better by instilling a toughness factor. Those were good kids just not the level athletically a
  10. You will be happy with this hire. Great coach and even better man! This hire will also add a spark to some existing and old rivalries! Should be fun!
  11. What's the word on this one? I hear that a guy from about 40 miles south of SV is in the running??? He would be a GREAT hire for SV! One of the smartest and most genuine people I've ever met!
  12. I stand corrected, sir! Did not think of it that way!
  13. Smoke and mirrors. GreaseLightning knows who the frontrunners are for this job. His comments about someone coming out of retirement do not apply. He's a little nervous in regards to what may be coming to SV!
  14. C'mon man, you know better than that............
