    Good Luck Coach. He has a long track record of bringing programs back or even starting them. I wish him the best in Middlesboro.

    With two kids at Middlesboro Elementary this hire really has me excited for the future. My kids at this point in their life don't know what Middlesboro football can be and for them to have a change to get some great memories growing up now means a lot to me as a Dad.

    This will be Larry French's first job at a "small" school since he was at Mercer County back in the 1970s/1980s (when they were 1A). It will be very interesting to follow.

    Nice hire for Middlesboro who has endured some rough seasons as of late. I think French can get them into the 1A conversation at some point.

    I have no idea what kind of season Middlesboro will have. But I do know those kids are blessed to have Larry French as their HS football coach. 37 years ago he was my coach. I am very thankful for my old coach. Good luck this season to the Yellow Jackets!
