    Oh, I think home schoolers should be able to play where they live. It’s a tough system to regulate. No matter how hard you try, the teams still seem to end up stacked.  If I had to guess, this all about a particularly talented home-schooler wanting to play for a team in Lumberton... despite being a non-resident, and the other Lumberton coaches are flipping out.    Anybody that knows can feel free to enlighten us. I’m just guessing. 
  2. 3AD1 Discussion -

    Am I the only person that pronounces “Winnie” like Forrest Forrest Gump pronounced Jenny’s name? Jen-nay.  Win-nay. 

    The STJFL is tasked with trying to prevent “stacking” teams. I’m going to make a guess that this has to do with some talented kid(s) being homeschooled in one area but wanting to play for a team in another.  IE, Junior lives with mom in BC and is homeschooled. Dad wants to coach with his buds and have JR play for Orangefield. The argument is made that since JR is homeschooled, he should be able to play anywhere he chooses, hence the new rule.  When we played STJFL, Lumberton had three different teams for a specific age group. Towns like OF end up with one. Everybody gets to play... if too many kids turn out, they just add teams.  I fondly remember the year that Port Arthur decided to effectively field a select team. They had tryouts and everything... if you didn’t get picked, you didn’t get to play.  And they still got their tails busted and and kicked out of the league for the next year. Lol. 
  4. Who are SETX's best returning wide receivers?

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......   Slot T!
  5. 2017 Carthage v 2016 WOS

    I re-rostered two team on NCAA 2k14 to identically match up player by player for both squads. Using both controllers myself, WOS won by 12 points in the second overtime.  So there you have it. 
  6. 2017 Carthage v 2016 WOS

    No way to tell... both teams were really special.  I think Carthage would probably be the winner based on the tests that they face through the non-district, distict, and playoffs. Better facilities that could give an edge in game prep and treatment, their consistent play on turf, and just having more talented kids suited up.  It would still be hard to count the Legend of Jack Dallas out, though. I’d be pulling for WOS, btw. 
  7. Who are SETX's best returning quarterbacks?

    QBs are over-rated.  Slot T!!!!
  8. I think Silsbee is really gonna benefit from dropping to 4AD2. Guaranteed ticket to the Regional Finals vs WOS in my opinion....  somebody correct me if #1 and #2 in a particular district face each other before the fourth round. 
  9. Playoff home-field for 4A and below

    All jokes aside, I’ll bet a home playoff game at the Reservation would be an experience that would beat the socks off any game played in a 1/4 filled Texan Drive Stadium.   
  10. RIP Blain Padgett

    I appreciated the link provided. In fact, I thought Shapiro was particularly tactful by not even addressing the content in his post.... just a link.  I don’t follow local news closely, so it’s doubtful that I would have ever known what happened had it not been for Shapiro’s posting.  It seems like some people don’t like the message and feel like attacking the messenger.  Honestly, if you haven’t talked with your young athlete about EXACTLY what happened to Blain, your missing a good opportunity.
  11. Best Athletic Season 2017-18?

    Probably Silsbee. PAM got a ring, too.  WOS would be an honorable mention in an “off” year in which they came up short in the SC.  Big Sandy would probably be on the short list, too.

    That’s a shame.... 
  13. Silsbee backfield

    “So, they loaded up the truck and they moved to Silsbeeeeeeeeeee.... Rocky tunes... selling cars.....The Beverly Silsbillies!!!!!!” Y’all come back now, ya heah?   The only problem Silsbee Fan has right now is figuring out which two are gonna get screwed out of the Willie Ray Smith Award.

    Sam Bradford is the best qb in the world at seven man.
