Re: Next Meigs Football Coach

The issue with finding officials is very similar to the reduced number of coaches, or should I say "good coaches". Why would a great individual put their neck out there, knowing good and well that there will be a fraction of parents that will never be happy with you. In today's day in age, that mean...

Next Meigs Football Coach

Any ideas who will be the next to lead the Marauders on the gridiron?


The only thing I have heard is they will be taking applications to fill the position. For the sake of building a program, I hope they get someone that will put in the time, and hopefully stay for a while.

What happened to Bissell? No details needed, resigned or let go?
From my understanding, he resigned. He is still teaching at Meigs as far as I know.

Re: Newt Oliver Classic at Rio this weekend ...

To some extent, I believe Coach French has forgot the identity of the school. He attempts to manage his team as if it were a D1 school. That is an admirable goal, but unfortunately, Rio will never be at the level. Stop recruiting kids that don't fit a system that would work in your conference. He do...

Re: Newt Oliver Classic at Rio this weekend ...

Things are def different under French. I actually played JV years ago at Rio when Thomas was still the head coach and French was an assistant. I played for current Jackson principal Thad Haines. We practiced every day and had a full schedule of games. We even ran scout team for the Varsity. When Th...

Re: Newt Oliver Classic at Rio this weekend ...

That’s pretty bad. If that was at the high school level or even other colleges, parents would be wanting him out. However, keep in mind that the AD, Lanham, was also an assistant with French under Coach Thomas. The chances of him leading a push to get French out is slim to none. I am in no way call...

Re: Newt Oliver Classic at Rio this weekend ...

I did a little digging. Had to do some math because the University's website does not list his record over his tenure there.

Gallia Academy not winning?
Gallia actually has grass. Fairland is a mud pit in between 10 yard patches of grass
Memorial Field was a bit better this year, but typically 10 yard line to 10 yard line is mud by week 4-6 depending on the year and weather throughout.

Also a little side note. I could be mistaken, but I believe that Ed Fry, the Ex Meigs coach of the past few years, is the Associate Head Coach now under Ken French at Rio Grande.
What is the difference between associate head coach and an assistant coach?

Re: The future of grass fields

My feelings on grass vs turf are pretty basic. While there are many perks to having turf, there is just something about the smell of fresh cut grass that signifies football. I believe field conditions are part of the game. Home field advantage sometimes comes down to field conditions. I don't see an...

Didnt the Sheets kid from Meigs play at Rio? He is local and represents half the schools in the area.
That was pretty funny. However, I don't believe he worked out at Rio. Might be moving on to a different college.
