  1. That being said, does any team around own the head to head with Carthage? They have pretty much dominated this area along with the entire state.
  2. I hate one game series. It only says who’s got the one best pitcher and sometimes not necessarily the best overall team.
  3. The only year I think they had more talent was 2016. Still “Carthage” got it done. They had Ingram. They had a few years where the talent was good but still had to go through Carthage. Here we go again, how many other teams can say the same thing? Very few. La Vega, Argyle, Liberty Hill, El Campo etc. Henderson has had their fair share of talent throughout my 40 years of following just like the last few. I’m not disagreeing with the fact that it was time for a change but I don’t think this change will work out. Only time will tell.
  4. He made it to the 4th round 3 times! That’s success! No other coach from here or Carthage has done that except Surratt. Decent? Really?
  5. Nothing wrong with Castles coaching. There are some people here upset but that’s everywhere you go. The only people that will ever see it the way it is are the ones not involved in the program. I was told years ago that being a coach was very difficult. When you hire on, 1/3 wants you another 1/3 doesn’t and the other 1/3 doesn’t care. As time goes on, the numbers grow in the don’t want you section whether it be from not winning or just from parents not being satisfied with their kids playing time. Coaches like Phil will move on and certainly have success wherever he goes. It’s tough for his f
  6. It really doesn’t matter who they bring in for a while! From what I’ve seen, there are no Jimmys or Joes on the roster for a few years.
  7. This is going to get ugly! It’s already ugly the way it’s being handled. Lots of kids and families being affected here. I think it’s about time for Henderson to take their school back.
  8. Small town newspapers are as useful as cable TV.
  9. I don't think they are planning on going back down to White Oaks level! You are a SH troll!
  10. 12JEFF You are absolutely correct. Carthage has a special thing going over there right now, and other than them, Henderson has been the 2nd best team several years in a row. Its easy to blame it on the coaches here but really look at what they have done in the past few years. No one in the state can match what Carthage has done and very few can match what Henderson has done. FACT!
  11. Have you seen West Rusk's roster? They have a hand full of freshman starters! This theory can work both ways.
  12. From what I could tell, against Harmony I saw 4 freshman on defense for a lot of the game.
  13. Gotcha! Honestly I wish that wasn't an option. These schools that are prospering are all benefitting from move ins. We all know who they are. I think there needs to be more penalty time when they move around and also stricter guidelines to qualify to transfer. All reality, winning championships with non home grown kids is not proving much. This football in Texas high school is about like select baseball.
  14. The Kilgore kid has been there for several years. His mom has been an employee for a while. Its more like his dad came down to coach. As far as Henderson kids go, West Rusk school district goes all the way to the west side of the city limits of Henderson. Those kids have been going back and forth for years.
