It is really good to see guys looking on the brighter side and not shooting down the kids/schools from the 'lower' socioeconomic settings. Many kids in some of those areas have only their football coa

Craig is a very good person. You will not meet many better than him. He will be fine. 

These recent upgrades are the "elbow grease" I alluded to in an earlier post. What they have now is definitely better than what we had when I was there, but still nowhere close to where it should/coul

Sounds like a tough get other than the schedule. I haven't seen them play in a very long time, the last time I did they had some good athletes.

The facilities are an embarrassment, to be blunt. 

There has definitely been some good elbow grease put in by folks in and around the program, but both field houses should be demolished and rebuilt new.

I would be curious if that is a money issue or a lack of attention to detail by those making the decisions.

It's a mixture of both, IMO. 

It's my understanding there have been opportunities to upgrade facilities with possible donors, but those opportunities have fallen through for one reason or another.

Can they not get some of that Buffalo Trace money?! LOL. If they were willing to donate and revamp I'd name the field after them!

I'd never thought of that but it would be worth a try. The field is literally two miles from there. You can smell the mash while you practice. 😂

This was one of the first things that came to mind for me...not that I don't think the situation obviously sucks for Craig, but talk about a guy who won't have any problem finding a gig elsewhere.

That old saying "there are three sides to every story" comes to mind here. I'd imagine we'll likely never know the extent of all the details, but there's no way they just told him to walk.

He will definitely coach again if he chooses to do so.

I feel like this is a job that a solid young coach would be interested in taking.  Somebody who can come in and energize the program and maybe get some kids out that aren't playing and possibly slow down kids leaving to go play at Franklin County.  In order to do that the school system has to be willing to update the facilities in order to prove they are willing to support the program.  If the facilities are as bad as people are saying it still might not be enough because from what I have seen Franklin County is doing what needs to be done to support athletics.

FHS, doesnt have a big district, most of their roster were kids from other districts the last several years.. I can think of 6-7 off hand that had played at FCHS this past season being starters.

I'm not sure it's a fair comparison to Franklin County. FIS is a tiny district. They'll likely never have the resources that County and Hills do.
