Elysian Fields undecided on King's contract
Wednesday, 16th January 2013 - 4:14PM
The contract for Elysian Fields AD/Football Coach Eric King was not renewed last spring, yet he led the Yellowjackets to an 11-4 record and a trip to the Class 2-A, Division II semifinals before losing to eventual state champion East Bernard.

The Elysian Fields school board met for four hours on Monday night, and according to multiple sources, his contract is still unclear.

King told David Smoak on Tuesday, "I haven't heard anything one way or the other, I'm just going about my business right now as I normally do."

Meeks leaving Henderson for Pittsburg
Wednesday, 16th January 2013 - 4:14PM
Dickey Meeks has coached two separate high school football programs to state championships in East Texas, one at Chapel Hill in 1989 and another two years ago at Henderson.

But, if he is going to win another one, it might be at Pittsburg High School, where he will be recommended on Thursday night to replace Robert Manley as the Pirates' new athletic director and head football coach.

Meeks, and his 236 career victories at Chapel Hill, Pine Tree, Mount Vernon, Henderson and previous stops in Louisiana will move a little further north if the school board approves his recommendation at 6:00pm on Thursday.

Pittsburg superintendent Judy Pollan told David Smoak, "We're very excited, it's going to be great for our kids."

Meeks told Smoak on Monday, "I've always liked the tradition at Pittsburg and there's no doubt they have athletes and I've always enjoyed the challenge of taking a program to another level," Meeks continued, "I love it up in that area from my time at Mount Vernon, my wife and I are excited."

When asked to reflect back on his six years at Henderson, Meeks said, "You always want to leave a program in great shape and I think we've not only done that, but, we also did what I told their school board we would do, we did what I expected, win and win big."

Meeks also told Smoak, "I remember Coach Manley telling me about a year ago this job might be open soon, and that got my interest, I mean they've won a state championship here before (1980), and they have a great history."
