    As we start the 2020-2021 season with our football and volleyball players taking to the field and the court tomorrow, we need to realize what we have been given. We have been given a gift......a gift to play, coach, and follow high school football and volleyball. While some might think it should be a given, other states have shown, whether you agree or not, that it is not. By the dialogue on here, that gift is a very precious one, but is also a very fragile one. A gift that can be destroyed by a single misstep by a player, coach, staff member, member of the player's family or even friends or fellow students. We ALL know the protocols...not all of them are pleasant...many don't agree with them. But if we do not follow them and destroy this gift we have no one to blame but ourselves...no politicians, no doctors, no nothing, just ourselves. I may be the eternal optimist, but I believe in these kids, these coaches and these communities to do what is needed to guide this precious gift along. Some don't agree with that either, but I have seen some pretty serious sacrifices made to allow this gift to proceed in the past. Let us root that they will be able to do so this year as well. And let us all pray for our boys and girls, our coaches, teachers and administrators as they lead us long this treacherous path that is the 2020-21 school year.

    (1) La Vega vs. (3) WOS

    We all put Carthage on a pedestal and rightfully so. Since Surratt took over just 12 years ago they have sky rocketed to all time greatness with what they have done. That said, let's look at La Vegas resume since the last 5 seasons since they won the state title in 2015. I think yall will agree that the Pirates have got something special going on themselves. 2015) 16-0 (beat Carthage 39-3 in playoffs) state champions 2016) 13-1 2017) 14-1 (lost to Carthage in semis 46-39) 2018) 14-2 state champs. 2019) 14-2 (lost to Carthage in title game) overall record of 71-6, 3 title game appearances , 2 titles. Carthage 2015) 11-4 2016) 13-2 state champs 2017) 16-0 state champs 2018) 14-1 2019) 16-0 state champs overall record. 70-7 3 champ. appearances, 3 titles.

    Normally, I would bristle at such a topic. However, given that it is a darned sight better than what we have had to talk about over the last few months, I'm good with it.

    As you have seen, a lot of the more recent previews have been schedules only. This indicates schools who did not answer our questionnaire. In fact, of the teams left, only 2 schools, High Island and PN-G, have full previews coming. Rather than print information that is available elsewhere on the site, I will just post those two previews tomorrow and that will conclude our previews for the year. My apologies for not being able to provide a more full set of previews this year. Todd

    You guys are so negative, you want it to be over before it starts. I can’t believe so many people truly want there to be no football season or school year. We are supposed to be all in to play a full football schedule, including playoffs. If a player tests positive they sit out for 10 days and most likely come back just fine. If a team has an outbreak maybe they forfeit a game or two and the rest of the teams play on, like baseball is doing. Why is it so hard to follow a model like that? I’d be more concerned about the coaches, officials and fans, hopefully we don’t see any problems there but the kids will be fine. They are young, in good shape and have yet to develop any underlying health conditions like the rest of us old worry warts.

    (1) La Vega vs. (3) WOS

    Btw, I think the Silver&Blue may have their hands full with this matchup, especially with it being a season opener. A team does not become one of the most respected programs in the state coupled with the highest winning % by not being able to overcome obstacles that come their way. So them Pirates may very well have their hands fuller than they think as well. Go get 'em Silver&Blue ! I am pulling for you to come out on top.

    PAM vs PNG

    Great opponents during pre-season is always preferred to easy pushover games. Memorial is strong, fast & skilled. I believe that this is a great game to have on the schedule for Bost & our offense. Hope for all the kids, on both teams play solid, stay uninjured and learn from a great matchup to build both teams through the season.

    10-4A-1 Who wins it.

    I certainly don’t know whether the whole season will get played. Based on info available, I think kids are less likely to be affected than MLB players. I will address the, “let’s wait” suggestion. Wait for District? Wait for spring? I think it should be obvious that this thing isn’t going away for several years. Only about 5% of the population has had it, and that’s counting those asymtomatic cases based on a Stanford study. Heat doesn’t kill it. Cold doesn’t either. This is not a short term thing. It’s a long row to hoe. Only question is, do we remain in our homes for X amount of years, or let those most likely least affected go on with their lives. Channel 6 shows 49 deaths, and all but one had underlying issues. The healthy can beat it. Those like me, 75 and type 2 diabetes, should be very careful.

    Question for all associates

    I saw this statement on another social media outlet and would like to know your opinion(s) of it, please. Accepting socialism is basically admitting you can't compete in the real world. You're saying " I am willing to give up my liberty, my religion, and my dreams as long as the state will take care of me." Accepting Socialism is accepting failure. It's the complete opposite of America.

    Did Herman Cains life matter?

    He won't have three funerals. He won't be flown all over the United States. He won't lie in state at the Capitol rotunda. He won't get much mention in the news after today. He is a black man who was raised by a mother who was a cleaning woman and domestic worker (read that as a maid), and a father who was a barber and a janitor. The senior Cain later worked three jobs to build a house for his family. Herman Cain rose from nothing to become an astute business man. At 36, he was assigned in the 1980s to analyze and manage 400 Burger King stores in the Philadelphia area. His success at Burger King prompted Pillsbury to appoint him president and CEO of another subsidiary, Godfather's Pizza. In 1988, Cain, Ronald B. Gartlan, and a group of investors bought Godfather's from Pillsbury. After he left Godfather's, he was on the board of directors of Aquila, Inc., Nabisco, Whirlpool, Reader's Digest, and AGCO, Inc. The list goes on and on. There will be no military honor guards. No presidents giving a eulogy. No media coverage for three hours during prime daytime TV. Why? He was black and successful. He was a business genius. BUT..........he was a conservative in a country where a black man, a successful black man, dare not take that path. Rest In Peace, Sir. You mattered to more people than you know.

    Read this yesterday and it seems factual. Iowa HS Baseball season ends tonight (only state where HS sports have taken place since pandemic) It wasn't exactly smooth sailing with Covid but: -94% of teams were unaffected -96% finished season -all infections reportedly mild -fans were allowed all season I know it's Iowa but I still see this as good news.

    At least one of the founders is a trained Marxist. IMO, Essentially a group being duped into doing dirty work for rich folks like George Soros. Very similar to Antifa, which is a duped bunch of young whites. Soros, and the other masters, are using both groups in an effort to start a race war. How sad they’re being used as potential cannon fodder, but the rich folks don’t care about them, or us. All they care about is mayhem and carnage to achieve their OWG or NWO if you prefer.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac stands as others kneel before the start of an NBA basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Orlando Magic Friday, July 31, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. “I believe that Black Lives Matter,” he said. “A lot went into my decision, and part of it is, I thought that kneeling or wearing the Black Lives Matter T-shirt doesn't go hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives. So I felt like, just me personally, what is that I believe is taking on a stance that, I do believe that Black lives matter, but I just felt like it was a decision that I had to make, and I didn't feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives. I believe that for myself, my life has been supported by Gospel, Jesus Christ, and everyone is made in the image of God and that we all forge through God's glory. “Each and every one of us do things that we shouldn't do and say things that we shouldn't say. We hate and dislike things that we shouldn't hate and dislike, and sometimes it gets to a point where we point fingers, whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to whose evil is most visible. So I felt like I wanted to take a stand on, we all make mistakes, but I think that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that there's grace for us, and that Jesus came and died for our sins and that if we all come to an understanding of that and that God wants to have a relationship with us, that we can get kept all of the things in our world that our messed up, The words of this young man should really resonate through each and everyone of us.

    The outbreaks in MLB are tied to guys not following procedures. Marlins (strip club, bars) and Cardinals (casino). MLB is supposed to be trying to basically lock everyone down moving forward (good luck). The key for anything having a chance is how serious the kids take this. If they go to parties and or even just pick it up at work there's no way to get through a season. And trust me I'm want this to work.

    BLM Update

    BLM, so far, has injured 1000 police officers, killed 36 people, and done $8 billion in damage. Wrap your mind around that. BLM is celebrated by pro sports. I am going to defund the NFL. NBA, and MLB.

    MLB has a pretty comprehensive plan and they are not going to make this season work. The UIL and TEA are throwing stuff at the wall and hoping something sticks. Our criminal attorney general is trying to score political points with a small audience. We should listen to the scientists and doctors. if our local health officials say it's not safe for school to open, that should be what we do.

    Vidor vs Silsbee

    We have to replace the starting backfield from last year so we will be relying on some young guys. We will have a Senior who is a road grader, takes multiple defenders to bring him down and does great work up the middle. Don't know much from there, not sure if we have a pure speed guy but we got some of them physical speed guys.
