  1. The same type of people that yell at officials also yell at the athletes and coaches. Additionally I was referring that high school officials need to be paid more money. I have coached multiple sports at every level and I have never received at technical foul or personal foul flag or anything of that nature as a coach. I have also officiated various sports. As far as a higher standard is concerned knowing the rules should be a requirement and I am not referring to judgement calls, specifically procedural penalties within high school football.. I know for a fact that the answers to the officials test are passed around. Higher pay would attract and retain more officials. Your know if all soapbox response with all caps, leads me to believe you have yelled at an official or two. Do you have any solutions? or ideas?
  2. Pay officials a considerable amount more than the current rates and hold them to a higher standard.
  3. This game is not a regional championship game. This is the 3A District 7 Championship. There isn't a 16 Region in football.
  4. Martin wasn't worried about their RPI last season when they refused to play West Carter.
  5. Great game. The kids from East and West played hard. The rivalry still exist for the adults in Grayson. West Carter was denied a locker room and they turned the stadium lights out of WC players and families as they were taking pictures after the game. But its hard on them, the barrel stayed in Grayson often 20-30 years ago.
  6. Over the past ten years West Carter had beat East Carter 7 out of 10 by an average of 28 points per game. The three wins for East Carter were decided by an average of 3.6 points per game. West Carter has 13 seniors on the roster this year which is not typical for the Comets, they have played and won a lot of games. I'll take the Comet seniors in this Battle for the Barrell.
  7. Nice win for the Comets after Fleming County dodging them the past couple years. No hold backs, limited kids and practices West Carter with a resilient win!
  8. Hopefully we will get to play the season opener against Rowan County. East Carter softball was allowed to play in Allstar Game last night, even after ALL extra circular activities were to be canceled in the district. But the powers on the East end of the county are actively trying to sabotage the West Carter Football program, so who knows?
  9. Carter County School District has not taken the vote to allow or not allow the supplemental year and will not do so till May 17th. This is very unfortunate for the kids who are in the CTE/Vocational Programs in the district, they have simply not had the same amount of hours/instruction/practice for these trade career fields that they would have got in a normal year. Many kids in these programs have progressed themselves out of poverty via these high paying trade jobs. Word on the street is that the Board members on the West end of the county are for granting the supplemental year and the Board members on the East end are not. It’s likely to get very interesting in the month to come because I am afraid that decisions by the Administration and BOE are being based sports. West Carter would have major advantage over East Carter if the athletes at West utilized the supplemental year.
  10. I think on a dry field West Carter would of had 600 yards of offense. Walton Verona got whipped up front. WV only had 40 yards rushing. I love it that Beachwood has to come to Olive Hill! It will not be comfortable for them. They have a very good team and a dynamic QB. I expect a very good game.
  11. Rowan and Fleming refused to play West Carter this season and the last. Lewis will end a long time series next cycle. They aren’t familiar with anyone in their new district. Scheduling Russell and Boyle is anything other than comfortable for West.
  12. West Carter scheduled Boyle County and Russell this year and continues to play Russell by choice.
  13. He had 12 catches for 94 yards receiving against Beachwood.
  14. Running Clock. SV had like 50 yards in the second half. Great job by the kids and coaches responding after down 12-0 and punting the 1st two offensive series then put up 50 unanswered. Comets building respect and I like it!
  15. Dalton Meade for SV could be out tonight according to the Appalachian News Express. He suffered a foot/ankle injury last week vs Martian County.
  16. The field conditions affected West Carters offense just as much or more so than Russell. Running a spread offense in the slop is a taller task the putting 11 in the box and running off tackle. West Carter has a very good defense and athletes on offense. I guess you give the edge to West cause they are used to playing on a crappy surface. Good game tonight, West Carter left some points on the field via some missed deep balls and Russell took care of business in the redzone.
  17. Comets by 90 was in reference to #CatsBy90 that might be a little too much internet for you to understand..?
  18. Please... I've been posting on here since 06'. Glad East Carter has something to be excited about, it has been a long time. Good luck in District Play.
  19. @GOREDDEVILS West Carter did not take care of business. Special Teams Safety followed by a poor Kick Off, gave up a Kickoff Return TD, Fumbled Kick Off Return which gave East Carter the ball on the 5 and a 10 yard punt. Mistakes were made.
  20. Congratulations to East Carter for beating Fairview, Lewis, and Morgan County to "hype" this game up. This will be the 3rd straight year East will come into the Game 3-0. Although East Carters skill players have improved, West Carter will have the best player on the field again in #21 L. Cline. West Carter played a very good team in Mercer county down to the end. It was 6-0 with 8 minutes left in the 4th quarter West Carter turned the ball over and lost. East Carter has scored 150 points and has not had to block anyone, I think the scheduling will come into play in this game. East will have to block West Carters defense or it'll be a long night for the Raiders. West Carter needs to take care of business Friday Night and get ready to move on to district play and the playoffs. West Carter 35 East Carter 12
