    Henderson had a lot of young guys last year on the team. I only saw a few games, but the roster was half sophomores with a few freshman. The sophomore numbers appeared to bigger than any class since Reese. I wonder how much of a rebuilder it is...

    Chief, I may or may not know Ky. football but I do know the realities of life. Winning a state championship in either class by either school is remote, very remote. What is important to most is getting their family in the best possible situation as far as best school system, community and money reward opportunities. I will assume Henderson pays their football coach much more than Union does and can. If you don't think if he got a call from the Administration like Lewis did, he would turn it down, you are living in a dream world. Union is a stopping off point for most of your major sports coaches. Your basketball coach tried to leave last year but that didn't work out. I don't have a clue if Coach Boston will apply or if he would be offered the job but regardless of the outcome of this situation, just like either school winning a state title in their class, the possibility of Coach Boston buying a house on the US 60 corridor between Waverly and Sullivan is remote, very remote.

    They will have a better line forsure, they lost a really good one but have five back. Also with ware back that kid could be running back or qb.

    I'm not the PVA or a census worker but I do believe there are renters and homeowners both in UC that work elsewhere, maybe even Henderson County. I would guess the administration at Union County is okay with Boston residing in Henderson. As I'm sure Henderson is fine with a few of their employees residing in Union County, right Emmitt?

    Right, it works both ways.

    You act as if Union Co. is Mayfield or something. I could understand this argument if you were comparing the Henderson Co. job to that of a smaller school that had a history of high level football success, but I don't think Union Co. would fit that criteria. In no way, shape, or form is Union Co. a more desirable job than Henderson County. I'm not saying Boston will be interested in the job. Maybe he felt like he got burned by Henderson County the first go around and holds resentment towards them, that's possible. But I believe if you asked which job is more desirable to any other coach in the state you'd get Henderson Co. hands down.

    Josh Boston has to be the first choice at Henderson! They should have done picked up the phone and called him.

    I Don't even understand how this is a debate and if your right Coach Boston wants to stay at Union County then the Henderson Admin. needs to talk him out of it.

    That school has to much tradition and pride to bypass one of there own two times in a row!

    1. Coach Boston is well respected by the staff at Henderson
    2. Loved by current players and young Alumni as well as respected by older Alumni
    3. He has a vast knowledge of game learning from many veteran coach's
    4. He has great relationship with feeder program coach's and can bring in quality coordinators and asst. coach's
    5. Henderson County football is where his passion is!!! (No one will out work him there)
    6. He is a good man someone that you would want your kids to be around and to have as a role model. Those are hard to find these days even with coach's.

    That's just my thoughts hope it works out

    Don't know if he would or would not but a phone call wouldn't hurt. Ive seen the guy Coach and talk at coaching clinics. I put him right up there with Coach Coverdale at Trinity as being the best football minded guys I have heard talk.

    1. Boston is not respected by the staff at Henderson. He has been very cocky and assuming in the past and feels like someone owes him. As football asst to Lewis, he was making more than any head coach in any of the other sports. The principal/board member did a great job with that one!

    2. He is liked by alumni, not loved. But then again Henderson always gushes over the football coach their first few years. Then they quit supporting the program.

    3. He has a limited knowledge of the game. While he may have been around some good coaches. Many coaches could have won with the talent he had at Union this year. He went 7-4 and lost first game of the playoffs. He didn't win district. He's no Saban.

    4. There is no feeder system in Henderson. I don't know how he could have a relationship.

    If he could bring in quality assts, then why didn't they go with him to Union Co.

    5. It might be his passion but that doesn't mean he can work magic. They will be lucky to win 3 games next year. There are many coaches at the high school that can outwork him. I think basketball has had some pretty good success recently.

    6. He is a good guy as long as you can help him win football games.

    Josh Boston is not the answer. He got a token interview last go around. There were 20 or more qualified candidates than him that interviewed. I think the only thing at this point that can save the program is Belichick.

    I'm not sure that this deserves any response considering your very first post on this entire site was to get on here and bash someone. It's quite evident you have a ax to grind. I'm not going to delve to deep into this but you've certainly not been around him or the program very much if your questioning wether the staff & players respect him or his coaching knowledge.

    No feeder program they have south and north middle school same schools that helped Duffy and cleverege. I will say it dose suck having two schools that hate each other for 7th and8th grade and then all the sudden you have to become good friends and play together.

    A lot of High schools have multiple junior highs/middle schools that feed into the highs school. Thats not the problem. The problem is the youth league and getting kids interested at an early age. I know both Coach Duffy's use to go to the elementary schools and talk to the kids about playing. I coach at a school and we basically took over the youth league about 8 years ago and its the best thing we have ever done. We throw and coaching clinic for the coaches for the youth league and Junior Highs and give them play books to use as well this way the kids are some what familiar with what we do. We give them freedom to run a few of their own plays as well. We get the Junior high coaches involved on friday nights as well. If Henderson County ever did this and the other coaches stuck with the system Henderson would be very good , not that they can't be without doing it. Problem is getting a Head Coach who would want to take the time and do something like this.
