Best player: Dwight Smith. I still think the 2008 state championship game was one of the most dominant performances I’ve ever seen.
Best team: 2014 Gilmer. Tons of talent (2 future NFL players). Team won the state track meet the same year. And they had a reason to play: Desmond Pollard. There was something special about that group.
Best game: best game I saw was 2014 Gilmer Vs Gladewater. I’m sure there were other great ones, but that’s my favorite.
Anyone at Tatum/LE scrimmage

this would have been one of those times to snag a game with a really good private school (if there is one anywhere looking) like IMG or an out of state like Evangel or one of the Little Rock schools like (Pulaski Academy or Bryant)...playing in a neutral site maybe on Thursday or Saturday to get a decent stadium.
For what why would wanna do that don’t make sense

As I sit here 1,300 miles from Alto taking in what has been a difficult two week period to say the least, it dawned on me, as I'm sure it has to others, it is only going to get more difficult from here forward, more than likely for the entirety of the next two years.
For the players who are already hurting, there will be many comments and under-the-breath trash talking that will test your will to resist the temptation to retaliate, or get into it, with the opposing teams. Be better than any who take that route and take that energy and use it on the field.
To the adults who are also hurting and will meet with the same "talk" in the stands, you too must resist the challenge of a few (I believe most true fans of the game empathize with Alto) and focus on supporting the kids and the program and the town. While the two years will roll by slowly, eventually Alto will rise again.
Be proud, stand tall Alto!!
Great perspective! Alto will persevere!

Word is Haynes is starting to separate himself in the QB competition.
Word is good out of camp. He’s physically bigger, his arm may be stronger, he’s got the system down. You’re hearing good things about these young WRs. I’m ready for the season to start.
