    Well Floyd Central is a consolidated school, so there aren't going to be teams next year at the old/current schools. I would assume they are practicing with Floyd Central?

    Douglass is a little more interesting because it's a new school district cut out of existing districts. Funny to think about a student attending Bryan Station then leaving after dismissal and heading to lift at Douglass while many of his previous teammates stay and do their conditioning at Bryan Station, but I suppose that's how they would do it.

    The McPeek name sounds familiar. Was he involved in some problems near Ashland/WVA?
    Nathan McPeek was the coach at Fairview when they had all their problems.
    Judging from Nate McPeek's Twitter profile, he is in fact a coach at Douglass now. So we've got Garry McPeek as AD, and Nate McPeek on staff coaching. They're getting the band back together. Watch out.

    Mr. Durden and others:
    After several texts from my coaching colleagues today I reluctantly got a personal account to see exactly the personal attacks of myself people have posted and it's appalling. Most people on this site are coaches, or former coaches that I considered my friends until adversity struck. As an educated person SHOULD be able to figure out I have learned a great deal since 2013 with the Fairview ordeal. If you think otherwise then you are kidding yourself. I'm very excited to work with the new High School in Lexington and I'm very thankful for the opportunity. I turned down some head coaching opportunities to be part of something special with Coach Landis. I would greatly appreciate the attack on my character, and integrity to stop please. I've been coaching long enough to understand it's very easy to hide behind a computer and type away ( Keyboard Cowboys) therefore you want to question my coaching feel free. I do my best to ignore the noise and probably will never post again unless it's necessary. I respectfully ask that each and everyone of you move forward in your lives because I sure have. Fairview did me a favor in 2013 and I'm very thankful the good Lord has blessed me with a great wife, family, friends, and job opportunities. If you have any questions you know where to find me guys.
