If my knowledge serves me correct he was at Shelbyville 8-10 years ago. Knowing what I know about LK, I wonder if the kids will be a fit for the slot T? Anything is worth trying I guess. 

Last name start with F? Hard nosed guy!

Is hard nosed conducive to being good at LK? You can bring Nick Saban in (just an example) but if the Jimmy and Joes ain’t walking around and suiting up, hard nosed won’t matter. He had cats at Shelbyville but what happened the season after those guys graduated?

Did you watch them play this year? If not there is a scrimmage on YouTube against Gorman. They have plenty of talent to compete. There may not be D1’s, but most small 2A schools don’t have any either. Just my opinion.

I believe they were slot t a few years ago? One of their past 4 coaches was I think.

I watched a few games and they weren’t short of talent, they were short of buy in and want to. What I’m saying is if the kids aren’t buying in to the slot t, you may want to do something else or look elsewhere for the hire. Kids aren’t the same as they used to be and if they don’t like something, they won’t give effort or they’ll quit. Hence the problem that LK has been in for a few years. The parents aren’t backing the program anymore, and if they don’t get it their way, they either tell their kids to go one sport or they move them to the next town over. The issue isn’t with the coach, it starts at home IMO. Parents want to run things at the school instead of letting the people hired do it.

I hope they have a plan for game 6. 

This will be interesting to watch from a far.

Is he a cultural fit?

Not sure the best athletes will survive his leadership style.

Could definitely see a rash of transfers or relocations OUT of LK.

It’s a shame how low some people will go to wreck a STRONG man’s way of life. One that fears the Lord, and brings 100% everyday and all day. Is he perfect? No, but you and I are not either. 
 

Just because you get accused of things doesn’t mean it’s fact. Some low life’s accuse people of things to get them removed. May the Good Lord have mercy on you.

 

Innocent until proven guilty?!?! Yea that’s what I thought.

 

Congrats LK on a great hire!  But know, your kids will work hard and be held accountable. And because of this they will win!

No one is trying to wreck a strong man, he’s already done what he has done and is forgiven.  Plenty have made mistakes and have been forgiven. But you know the society we live in and how your past will be brought up and haunt you. I’m sure there were applicants who don’t have allegations tied to them that didn’t get a chance. Is this a fix to their problem, who knows? Kids have been leaving since 2018-2019 and their method of hiring (not ridiculing them) hasn’t stopped it yet. Until they (admin/board) do things on behalf of the kids and not how they want them, it’ll continually be a problem.

Nobody, especially me, is trying to wreck anyone's life.

I do not know Coach Ferguson and would never assume to convict him of anything.

Nobody wants to be wrongly accused or convicted in the court of public opinion.

For the kids sake, I hope he is great.

Move to Linden and see if innocent until proven guilty applies to anyone not part of the few families that run everything around there.
