Re: Gallia Academy - Cols. Africentric

Hopefully blue devils will play a couple of more teams that wi try to press them. That truly is there biggest weakness. Not that they can’t handle the press it is more they face it so little that it catches them by surprise and takes them a little while to figure it out. They just need to keep getti...

Re: 2019 Gallia Academy Blue Devils Outlook

Both of the QB options for next year are solid. I am not saying better arms the mcellend but by th have quicker releases. I think you might see a little more traditional option next tear then read option but I could be wrong a whole year for these guys to get ready. Mcellend play at least some snaps...

And as far as OVC goes. The top of OVC may not be a last competitive as last year but think the bottom of OVC better then it has been in a while.

Re: 2018-2019 Gallia Academy Basketball Schedule

So again it's a wash with many of those teams comparable to several OVC team now and RV, etc. The schedule is no better now than it was 4 years ago and maybe not as good. Records mean nothing. It's the strength of the teams you're playing. I want to see this team get challenged given the talent we ...

Re: Kaskey or Penrod

Wade Bartholomew would be a great candidate for Logan. If Logan looks outside, and if he applies, that’s a no-brainer. Isn't he the same guy that came to Gallia Academy a few years back, only to bail after one year commenting in a Newark newspaper(I think) on a "rebuilding" process as one of the re...

Re: 11/30 #8 Athens vs #2 Gallia Academy

Thing that impressed me most was Gallia defense and physical play. They are going to get lay a lot of games that teams are going to want to make ugly. I still say Gallia starting 5 changes over the next few weeks. The 5 they have starting is the 5 you want on floor in the big minutes. But I think th...

Re: 11/30 #8 Athens vs #2 Gallia Academy

I really think this early in the season Blue devils might not even be top 10 yet. They really seem be struggling when they have in anyone but starting 5. Wait struggling not the right word. When they are missing any pieces of starting 5. They seem ordinary. Hopefully that is beginning to come togeth...

I think there is a big difference in a college coach making a hour trip south or maybe even 45 minute plain ride on a off day then out and out recruiting yes you might go out and visit a kid you already have a in with. On the radio the other day. They were asking coach Huggins how much recruiting he...

Re: Gallia Academy Blue Devils at Oak hill Oaks

No wait that is right game was at gallia academy last year. Because the Blue devils ran that stupid 4 high offense that we only saw like 2 possessions the rest of year last year. Year before that it was oak hill and they shot lights out from the outside to begin game and never looked back.

Why would you play this type of nonconference schedule? You have a D-1 recruit Coach Harrison. Get him some exposure and go play some quality people.

Re: What makes some schools good every year and some not so good every year

Coaching is vastly overrated. Not saying it is negligible. But overrated. I think anyone who has followed Gallia academy last 10 years would beg to differ. When we had the right coaches very successful when we did not we were horrible. And there actually was quite a bit of talent on those bad teams

Seems wrong not to be playing a game or two against Jackson.
I agree. I know they had to let some games go to beef up schedule a little for this year but 2 river valley games and 2 Point pleasant games much prefer to see Jackson at least once.

If the coach can get those boys to work in offseason at south Gallia they will be fine. But they should be dominating people upfront with there size. Just not happening and that is all off season stuff

Re: What makes some schools good every year and some not so good every year

I think youth football is a key but disagree that they have to be on same page as a high school coach. What you need is youth football teaching every kid strong basics of every position. Even in junior high. The starting right tackle and biggest blocker on team in 7th grade. Was a stud QB by our jun...
