I don't understand rock hill. in ways I do because a coach's success is production related. but last year he was released and then re-signed. and the last couple of years I think he has done an admirable job. I hope todd lands on his feet somewhere else. maybe south point.

I will be shocked if the blue devil job does not go to a known candidate. I am not saying that they will hire in house. But i think it will be someone who understands Gallia Academy athletics and the challenges that comes with that. That gives me a list of about 6 or names.

It is my understanding that it was offered to a coach on current staff. Coach turned it down. It is my understanding that coach will apply for the job now that it is posted. But after the fiasco the last time of just naming someone he wants no part of a back room here you go deal. Dont know if it is true or not. just what i was told.

I think they will get several qualified candidates... Whoever coach is. Has his work cut out for him. I was at school for a assembly recently.. It isnot that the dont have that many big kids come out for program. They dont have that many big kids that go there.

The Rock Hill situation is a tricky one, they need stability and I felt from a far they were getting to that point, but I don't just get it....

I see your point. I think the people from RH believed they had a strong team last year and they finished 5th in the league. They also would have had to pay their coach another years salary even if they went and hired another coach.

Blue Devils do not need put the full court press on to get anyone. If Penrod is interested he will apply. Same with some other quality guys in the area. I think Penrod would be a great hire. But there are other guys who would also be great fits. It will be interesting. As far as politics at Gallia goes not that much worse then other schools. Especially not now seems to be getting much better.

If they want to talk to penrod not difficult as you can find him around a gallia academy sporting event at least once a week.

Triplett walked away from his alma mater (Rock Hill) a few years ago because they wouldn't give him complete control of the program. Boosters and school board members wanted to make sure their family members would keep the starting positions.

Unless they fire a majority of the crummy school board, I wouldn't see him being interested.

I'd love that. But I don't think a commute FARTHER north is in his or his family's best interest.

I've mentioned Coach Saunders name several times. I just don't think he wants it. Would you really want the job at the school where your Dad was the 'Woody Hayes" of the football program?!?!!?

Gallia will never have a highly successful program with the football field being away from the high school. The rest Rock Hill also. Getting a plan the fans, parents and players can get behind while not allowing school board and others not to overstep to control. From The lower lever of football up.

Will be hard to get a football coach in Rock Hill with all the politics and division of people who want to control/take credit for.

Why do you think they won't be successful with football field away from high school? I am just curious. I understand if you say they wont be successful until practice facilities are at high school. But don't understand why it matters where the field is.

More with practice facilities being at the school. A lot less wasted time after school day. Having everything in one place. Not the worry about transportation with kids driving more. Also kind of like not having a coach not working at the high school. Just helps to make things seem like a campus and in this case not stuck in the past. Yes can be done but also easier for band to get to the game. Where it seems all the time like a road game.

Say what you want the football team has not won since the move and this year. Well believe what you want. As you can make excuses but their record will not change.
2 examples of schools in the OVC. Chesapeke had a terrible year when they had to play games up the road at South Point. Even though practice was still at the school. Ironton when they were building the school. They went to school away from the football field.

You can debate it all you like. But whatever it is it is not working and has not worked for years.

No that doesn't equal success but sure doesn't hurt. If you are wanting to wave a magic wand and have success without putting in the work from grade school up. You are just living a dream instead of building a program.
