    What has seperated South Floyd and Allen Central is one was on Left Beaver Creek, the other was on Right Beaver Creek

    I say they keep bits of each teams mascot and incorporate the tie that bonds

    FLOYD CENTRAL RUNNIN' BEAVER RAIDERS


    Interesting nickname for a team! The Beavers or the Elk's might have been better choices than Jaguars. Or something that is a compromise of a Raider and a Rebel like the Marauder's.

Jeremy Hall was head coach at Allen Central in 2016 and Chad Hall was head coach at South Floyd in 2016. Does anyone know if the coaches are related to one another?
    I interviewed Chad Hall last year for an article on South Floyd and I seem to recall him saying the and Jeremy weren't related, although Chad was a longtime assistant at Allen Central. I don't have any news or info but I'd guess one of those guys will be the coach.

    That will put them in a district with Belfry, Lawrence County, and Pike County Central (and maybe Sheldon Clark, depending on whether they return to district play). That's going to be a tough row to hoe for that team.

    I suspect Floyd Central will play in 3A for the next two years and then will drop down to 2A when the next full alignment comes out. There just aren't going to be that many students in the school.

    I wonder if they are any chances that they could be in 2A if there numbers aren't what they were expecting?

    At this time, I doubt it. With the KHSAA having already placed them in a district and scheduling already started (and in many cases complete), I'm guessing they'll stay in 3A.

    Word out of Inez is that Sheldon Clark will be back in district play in 2017. Nothing confirmed.

    Not a fan of this whatsoever

    Sheldon Clark screwed up a bunch of schedules and cost teams money by backing out of District.

    I think that if a team drops out of District Competition it should require an unanimous vote from the coaches in the District to re-admit them... the only caveat being that if a new realignment is in place, the program can petition the KHSAA and must demonstrate they will be competitive enough to be re-admitted.

    What happens if they remain non-competitive and choose to drop out after 3 years of alignment again?

    At the very least there should be some standard in place that when you choose to drop out of District Competition you must 2 years before you can re-join, and if a new realignment does not take place by then you must wait until that next alignment cycle. This would mean Sheldon Clark would have to wait until to 2021 alignment since they dropped out one year short of the 2017.

    Sheldon Clark has been down for a long time and it was not helping their program or any other program by them playing in district so they dropped out. So you think punishing a team that is unable to compete is the answer? That seems logical. Bottom line is SC did not do anything shady and simply had to play the cards (pun intended) they were dealt.

    Back on topic anyone know who will be coaching Floyd Central?

    The new alignment comes out for the start of the 2019 season.

    The unfortunate thing about that was the timing of it, it put other teams in a pickle with scheduling.

    However, they had a coaching change, and for a team at the lowest point they had been in a long time, I have no problems with the new staff making the decision they made. The other teams in the district just had to suck it up and move on.

    I wish them the best and would love to see them get back on track.

    And while it was a rush, all three teams in the district were able to get to 10 games. Sheldon Clark ended up only playing 8.

    They left District Competition for one year and went 2-6 and continued playing Lawrence County.

    You really think they are going to be more competitive in 2017 (with Lawrence and PC returning the brunt of their talent)

    Either they should have never left District competition (I argue Pike Central might have been better to play than not playing a game at all and Belfry would have been what it was and will be for the next five years or so) or instead of coming back after a year hiatus they should continue to play a schedule outside of their District to build wins.

    I am not sure I have ever seen a program opt out of the District for one year then look to resume.

    With the alignment being in 2019 I think it would be best for SC to continue to try and build their program and momentum until then. This gives the Cardinals a chance to get some wins and improve numbers, but it also keeps the District teams from having a handicap on their scheduling for a team that most likely will not contend for one of the top 3 spots in the standings..

    I have heard a lot of buzz about former Sheldon Clark Head Coach and recent PBurg Assistant Shawn Hager.

    I am going to say this is already done just not announced.
