Re: Coach of the year

South has two feeder middle schools(Edison and Blennerhasset). Both are well coached. They have youth programs in Junior Patriots, South Parkersburg, Mineral Wells and Lubeck. I may have missed one too. I’m assuming by the success that these programs are/have enjoyed they are also well coached. It t...

Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

I've just changed my hotel reservations for states to July 12th and 13th. This will avoid the teacher's (strike, demonstration, walk out or work stoppage). Most families will have to cancel their summer vacations. This message is only for a chuckle. If you can't laugh at yourself......well..... P.S...

Re: Off topic/ little Humor

What is Cael/PSU going to do at 197? Is he going to petition NCAA to allow back ups? Is he going to talk about his inner workings of his program on his weekly radio station? Is he going to start thirty different threads talking about the same thing? OR Is he going to make a decision and move on? :D...

Re: Coach of the year

What is the criteria for coach of the year? Is it simply the coach of state championship team? I think this should be looked at, as to some of the coaches that make the best out of the little number of wrestlers or students they have. Possibly coaches that go above and beyond without little support...

Re: Teachers strike

Good news! As I have said THE ENTIRE TIME the teachers ARE NOT ON STRIKE FOR THE TOURNAMENT!!! It is CRAZY how much info a TEACHER that is IN THE DISCUSSION knows about the situation. What I don’t get is how so many of you ignorantly go through life while intentionally ignoring a person in the know...

Re: 9th graders that will be a force next year??

I am sure that will do wonders for the middle school wrestling programs. I'm not saying all the middle school kids but the ones who are talented enough to start should have the choice. Let them wrestle both if good enough. Most middle school seasons are over before regionals. If a team has a forfei...

Re: Teachers strike

My entire immediate family has PEIA. My wife has a state job and my daughter and her husband teach. One issue is the cost of insurance, but another biggie is their pay. The one offered was not going to cover the cost increase in insurance premium and actually put teachers further in debt. Being 50th...

You know, I think they let 8th graders wrestle in the high school state tournament in Florida. Oops! I probably shouldn't have brought that up.

I think the qtrs match between Miller and Dunbar will be a good one, providing they both win their match. If you get caught looking ahead in Huntington, you may be in the consolation round.
