Benny is quickly becoming one of my favorite Dawgs.  Good things just seem to always happen when he gets the ball.  Dude's dang near automatic positive yardage.

Would be a shame if he grew 2 or 3 inches in the next few months.

Question....................what's up with PG coach allowing his players to go through pre-game shirtless???

 

He’s a cool coach.  On that note,in my almost sixty years I’ve NEVER seen a coach run through the mascot tunnel AFTER his team so it was just him in the back running through the drill team and smoke while all the assistants walked on the sideline. Every time you looked up he was standing on the track alone getting a drink of water.   He’ll say all the right things but coach is all about him!

How many teams has Belleville played with 8 legit DI players on the same team. 
To say Belleville is leaps and bounds better than PG doesn’t even make sense. Belleville has not played any team anywhere close to PG or Carthage. 
They very well may win the state championship but leaps and bounds better than PG and Carthage is crazy. 

I don’t care what anybody says. PG does not have 8 “legit” D1 players. They have some studs for 4a DII ball. Great HS players. But thats it. Maybe a couple guys will be impact players on the D1 level, but statistics say probably not.

I just watched the Texarkana Gameday feed of the game on NFHS and I have to say that they did a very good job of calling the game. You could tell they would have liked to see a different outcome but didn’t stoop to being complete homers like some announcers in the past. Hats off to them.

Arkansas, Alabama, Baylor, TCU, are just four I can name. Go to PG athletic department and see them all.

Like I said. PG does not have 8 “legit” DI players. Some of those kids might be getting looks and might even make it 4 years at a DI university, but statistics say otherwise. I don’t care what their twitter timeline or PG athletic department say. National signing day is coming soon. Let’s see. There won’t be any questions. If they have 8 guys sign letter of intent to play for DI universities then I will admit I was wrong.

If PG has 5 players that will play for Arkansas, Alabama, Baylor, TCU and OK State then they should be playing up in 6a. Sounds like Desoto or Northshore to me.

I think the term D1 is used a lot and means different things to different people.  In this instance, PG has 8 kids on their roster with at least one D1 football scholarship.  What does that mean in the grand scheme of things?  I don’t know.

Ok, I can agree to that. A lot of guys all over ETX that look good with their shirts off sporting a 6 pack that run a 4.5 forty. Very few are D1 “football” players.

Here you go. PG has 4 kids that will sign with Power 5 schools…Johnson - AR, Hackleman - OSU, McFadden - Duke, and Jackson - ?. Boardley de-committed from OSU, not sure if he plays Power 5 football or not. He did receive an AR State offer. After that, a few have DIII, DII or FCS offers. There are a lot of schools that are D1, but not all are part of the Power 5 conferences.

See my previous posts. I stand on what I said. National signing day is coming soon.

It they have 3 kids that will sign P5, that is very impressive! Why the need for everybody to overstate and say PG has 8-9 D1 players? I just don’t get it.

Basically was!  Thank God for them refs!  Seriously though, nothing but respect for the PG players.  They played their butts off and gave my Dawgs all they wanted and then some!  Great game between 2 great teams with lots of great players.  Bring on them Bux!

Schools can pull their offers. I have not heard anything to believe that they have. I believe the 3 seniors are early enrollees so they plan on signing and leaving in January.

Tulsa and AR State are D1. I think some other kids have had offers from those type of schools. A lot of people think everyone is D1 nowadays. I tend to focus on kids that can play Power 5 football.

Remember the linebackers are young, a lot of misdirection with inexperience can show it’s head, I do think the D-Line is good, but I have also seen them take many of plays off, if we are to play Belleville it will test them. They are going to come right at you. To me eye test wise, they are bigger than GR O-line from last year.

I will admit, knowing our starters haven’t played the whole game most of the season and usually get 3rd/4th quarter off could lead some to believe they can’t handle a whole game but Carthage proved yesterday that, when it’s necessary for them to play the whole game, they can. Great job DAWGS🐾

I totally agree. Ran out of thumbs up
