No Im actually serious. I ran across a old thread from 2015 that listed Braylon Bush when he was at Legacy, Jordyn Adams when he was at Vincent , Mcain from Silsbee. Dotson when he was with St Anthony and a few other kids. They were pretty accurate in that discuss. Just wanted to see the talent that will let our area to future State appearances

Coby Elam is pretty good. Yes, he's from Silsbee. We'll see if he goes straight to varsity or not next year.

Yep I saw him 2 years ago....pretty darn good for a six grader at that time

Bryce Anderson, Chandler Rivers, and Aron Akhtar would be in my top 5 for any 8th grade list right now. 

Add Montavien Jones and Arceneaux to that top 5 list

I know this is kind of foolish to say now but if Arceneaux grows a little bit more and continues to polish his skills, he’ll be a D1 player.

No doubt...If 3 others do the same, they can become D1 football players.

Man, I kid you not if those top 3 all stay at Legacy they could compete for a title next season. Aron and Bryce would be immediate game changers. Thomas is already an elite level high school shooter. A lot of young talent in SETx right now

They won't stay at legacy... Maybe one or two will but not as a group. I don't believe so anyways! But I love their game for sure!

I was hearing months ago that Anderson was more likely than not going to WB.

It’s hard to tell how (most) kids will progress. Some dominate in middle school but fade when they hit highschool. Other kids catch up or their interest changes. And some excel. And some are just naturals.

I’m a legend in my own mind. Bo-hack was good back when. The older we get the better we were. Lol

From what I've heard the best 8th grade basketball player in SE Texas is actually a girl at Hardin Jefferson. Don't know the young ladies name but I hear she is already getting serious attention from the top women's D1 teams in the nation.

      He did cost himself a lot and should have came out last year and been a top 10 pick. With so many bigs and huge draft he should have stayed in college station one more year to get back in the top 10.  I was reading reports of a package deal for them to get mo bamba but as of now nothing has planed out

      See the response on here by republicans is why blacks won’t vote republican. Rather than facts I see two users claim lbj welfare reform was what got blacks to the left which is just a lie to belittle the black vote democrats took the black vote from the republicans with fdr decades before lbj early 30s mid 40s Democratic was already approaching 80% with black voters. Lbj got 94% because the civil rights acts he will eventually sign (jfk got him that).  You can vote lbj who’s for the civil rights act or for Goldwater who opposed it. I’m more at awe it was only 94%. So I think history has shown that Black will vote will change parties for the side who earns the vote. the left haven’t earned it as late but the right haven’t even tried .

      When I say policies im not talking legislation more identity politics. Crack has been a problem in urban neighborhoods since the 80s  opioids move into the suburbs and its a national crisis.  Confederate flag confederate statues. The refusal to address even the slightest wrong doing of the police. The constant Chicago reference for only political points.  The assumption that we’re all welfare recipients that vote democratic to keep food stamps. The failure to even address us on the political stage.  I can go on and on.

      I slightly preferred Mitchell Robinson because his upside is monstrous (could be a perennial all star - 7 footer with skills), especially that late.  But Williams is probably a safer pick.  Won’t be flashy but will be a solid rebounder who defends well. He cost himself a lot of money coming back to play another year in aggieland.  A likely top 10 pick a year ago to barely a first rounder.  Everyone knew this draft was going to be one of the most big heavy in years.  Not sure what he was thinking.
