Matt Turner new AD/HC in Gilmer


Recommended Posts

Agree. Both basketball teams made the playoffs coming in 2nd place. Kudos to the boys since they didn't really start playing until district. Both girls & boys track teams should win district again and make state. Baseball & softball are steady. What else are ya'll looking for, geesh.

 

You left out the swim team. :D

Not only that, but you both left out the new Gilmerite soccer team! As evidenced by this recent shootout, whatever the Buckeyes might lack in soccer skill, they will more than make up with soccer determination! Watch BuckeyeBob's nephew and football backup linebacker and special teams specialist, Scott Sterling, here in a recent match!:

Thanks for playing along BuckeyeBob. In the words of another excellent player and coach:

"If God had wanted man to play soccer, He wouldn't have given us arms."

On the other hand, on occasion those soccer ball players can come in handy!:

As other posters have stated here, I believe without a doubt that Gilmer will not skip a beat and the tradition will continue under the tutelage of another outstanding coach. Best of success to Coach Jeff Traylor moving forward as well! Thanks for the memories and we will be looking to follow you on Saturdays sir!

Could not imagine a more deserving coach in the state. Coach Turner is well respected throughout the state and is one of the sharpest offensive minds in the profession. Could have taken nearly any head coaching job in the state if he wanted to. Gilmer is very lucky to have him.

 

Good luck Coach Turner

Nailed it. There may be some that are more highly thought of but like Bum said about Earl, I don't know how many are in his class but it does not take long to call the roll.

 

I really hope that the rumors of coaches looking to leave is not true, unless of course they are doing so to improve some aspect of their lives. The entire Coaching Staff is what made Gilmer so dang good the last few years and Coach Traylor would be the first to agree with that.

 

It still cracks me up that Jeff Traylor was as close as you can be to taking another job two weeks before he got the Gilmer gig and if that had happened how different would history be? Jeff must really be on good speaking terms with the Lord, by passing on job A which is one of the biggest coaching graveyards in the state he goes to Gilmer, on to UT, and eventually I am sure into the THSCA Hall of Honor. Life is hysterical sometimes, no?

Keep in mind that for 16 years, Turner has been Offensive Coordinator...950 points last season. 59.4 average per game, 8,500 yds...now, HC & AD...we shall see

Bob, As you know being a good OC doesn't always translate to being a successful HC. I'm guessing the Admin. Didn't look for an outside candidate with HC experience, to keep the status quo. If some of the other Coaches are leaving, along with Coach Traylor heading south, this has to be concerning for Buckeye nation.

If coaches leave I am sure there will be good coaches that would like to come to Gilmer and work with Matt Turner. Good facilities, great pay, good fellow coaches to work with, great tradition, great athletes who work their butts off, and a chance to work for a guy like Turner might attract a few applicants.

It has been a fun ride thus far...not seeing a hick-up

How often has the boys basketball team made the playoffs?
