  1. Granddaughter Sydney Moss started her first game at Florida and was named player of the game with 9 points, 9 assists, and 10 rebounds. New assist record for a freshman. Go girl!
  2. Yes, it is true. My daughter needs help with a lot of things and has a better chance in WV. Hate that Thad can't continue at BC but it has to be done. Hanging on. Weaker all the time.
  3. 1st Boone score Moss catch???? Got that feedback.
  4. Great sequence on Thad's catch. Thanks so much!
  5. Freshman Thad Moss had his first HS TD catch in this one, a 19-yarder, and BC had the game at 13-17 in the second quarter before Male went to the air (same old story - Boone can't defend the pass) to blow the game open.
  6. Thanks for the encouragement folks. And the prayers. Much appreciated.
  7. Just did a little research and found a number of 6A teams (not so many in NKY) with frosh players listed on their rosters. And a few of those are playing enough minutes to be showing up in the stats. So perhaps Moss playing isn't totally unusual. Perhaps these other schools also have cases where a younger player is the best option for them at a particular position. And that raises a reversal of the question being asked in this thread. Would all this discussion about Thad be going on if his name (and relationship) wasn't what it is? I would guess that it wouldn't. Food for thought.
  8. Thanks, all prayers appreciated! I'm Thad's grandfather and wishing I could be there (live in WV). I truly think he's playing because he's good enough and that the name has nothing to do with it. As I said earlier, occasionally that youngster comes along that can get it done and fits a need, thus plays where he might not normally.
  9. Fair enough. Gotta excuse me having a bit of an edge since I'm at home in hospice care, defiantly cheating the grim reaper and trying to whip him. This message board is a way to keep myself involved since I can't be there to see Thad play.
  10. I hear what you are saying but there are occasionally young players who are good enough to play up. And I agree FB is a tough one to do that because of the strength and maturity difference that comes from being in a program for a while. Sometimes it just works out that a young player fits in where there may not be a better suited/gifted/prepared upperclassman. I do know some Boone County supporters on here who watched Moss play up to the 9th grade team last year who thought he was good enough to play varsity, and I also know the BC coaches felt that way prior to the season.
