Has ALL of the Kountze talent moved up the road to Silsbee? What has happened in Kountze?

THATS a huge lie! Wesley Yates III attended BISD schools since ELEMENTARY school, and his entire family is FROM Beaumont! Try again, sir!

But, and think about this addition to a young Silsbee team, there is another on that BU team that does have ties to the Tigers...unless i was misled by more than one a year or two ago.

Start on MLK off 5th street and go all the way down to where it comes out on 327. That's more than half of Silsbee right there. Some of those kids aren't that far from Kountze if you go far enough. Don't feel bad at all if a Lion ends up in a Tiger uniform. Some of our players have ended up there when they were killing it.

The idea that Kountze ball talent moved over to Silsbee is bogus and a lot of other things.  There is too much pride and rivalry for that to happen. It is a friendly rivalry but rivalry nonetheless.  Kountze started it off by winning state back in 1969.  They have won 4 total.  No self respecting b ball player from Kountze wants to help Silsbee catch up.  

There was that guy who was from Silsbee but ended up going to Kountze HS, he is the exception to the rule.  That was at least 12 years ago.  Keyboard lawyers been milking that down to the last drop.  Let it go bro there is nothing there.  Besides Silsbee did not benefit.  Kountze kept that player and won 2 championships with him.

Jay Bilas is somewhat right.....Yates Mom is from Kountze and Dad is from Beaumont. He would reside with grandparents while Mom and Dad were at work. They officially moved to Beaumont after his elementary years. 

Yeah and somewhat wrong saying he doesn’t have family from kountze::: also has a brother that graduated last year from kountze

After speaking to his Father his older brother(2013) was a Kountze graduate in all his years attending Kountze. His brother who graduated last year went to Kountze all the way thru 6th grade and went to Smith Middle School 7th and 8th grade and West Brook in 9th grade and 10th-12th went back to Kountze. Sister went to Kountze all years except for Sr. year where she graduated from West Brook thru way of the credit recovery program only offered in Beaumont. Wesley Yates III attended elementary, Middle and now Highschool in Beaumont. They almost moved to Houston up until Dads parents asked that they let him stay and grow up in Beaumont since he was the last grandchild and were retired to help watch him. Mom worked in Woodville and Dad worked in Beaumont in which Mom transferred job to Beaumont and that's what made the move from Kountze to Beaumont after Yates III elementary years.

Just patiently waiting for folks to admit that players have more to do with wins/losses than coaching.

Not taking anything away from the success of the coaches involved... still waiting nonetheless.  

I can see both sides of this... no matter who is coaching you have to have some type of talent to win, but also have witness talented teams with mediocre coaching make it to the playoffs and get bounced early..

I have never said coaching doesn't play an important part.  I'm saying that without kids, coaching isn't enough to matter.  Case in point.. we have here one of the arguably best coaches in the area for sure.  More than one state championship... how many region appearances?  District titles?  What happened?  Same coach.  Same tradition.  Same culture.  Same expectations.  Is he a worse coach?  I don't hardly think so.  The only thing that changes from year to year is players.  So it should come as no surprise when I run to the defense of a coach when they're bashed by a parent/fan.  Blaming the coach is a poor excuse to the possibility of perhaps the players just aren't good.  Are their bad coaches?  Sure.  But bad coaches can still be successful with good teams.  Good coaches can NOT be successful with bad teams.  I don't care how much winning experience one has.. you aren't winning a horse race with a donkey.  Period.

Didn’t Yates who plays for BU transferred from Kountze?  Strange that the surge of 

BU basketball happened about the time Kountze went down.

If it wasn’t for Hardin county grown coaches and players BU would be concentrating on playin golf right about now.

We all know where the Adams lived while making the Silsbee basketball program relevant! And word on the street is that Harris was going to attend BU this year. But certain Silsbee parents were going to get the UIL involved. And lets not talk about all the records the Beaumont kid Lil Cee broke playing football for Silsbee. Lmao...

Man Adams is thinking about gettin' his Masters deg & you still stuck in the past. Let it go son. That's history.  Their thinking about making a documentary about it.  Let it rest

As for the word on the street about Harris, well, he has gotten more fame and playing time playing for Silsbee.  The grass is not always greener.  As long as they have AAU ball there will be rumors.  

As for lil Cee, I guess you talking about Calvin Tyler.  Man Calvin Tyler got so many relatives in Silsbee they could start their on lil country town.  Call it Tylerville or somethin'.   peace,

I'm sure there will be a Netflix special soon. Probably a three part series.

That Harris rumor was quickly put to rest when it started on here. He can be the man (alone with Miller) in Silsbee and get more exposure. Silsbee is always in Dallas and San Antonio playing before district starts.

Some of these kids being friends is how these rumors get started in the first place. I remember when Kasen Harrison was supposed to "finish out his high school career in Silsbee."

Most of those were Silsbee kids to begin with outside of Adams.

    • Ah yes, the Obamacare ruling. I do think that he very likely will rule to keep Roe v. Wade in full effect because of stare decisis but I also think there is a chance that he might side with modifying it. The Mississippi law does not exactly go against part of Roe v. Wade anyway. That decision says that the state cannot restrict abortions at all within the first trimester but the current Mississippi law at 15 weeks prohibiting abortion is outside the first trimester. In the second trimester Roe went by viability standard and potentially some other issues. In the last trimester is take it out right now and abortions period. Planned Parenthood v. Casey actually overturned some parts of Roe already. Sotomayor made one of the most stupid comments by saying that people will think the Court is political. Basically you cannot vote against Roe v. Wade because of politics. Apparently she has not read some of her own decisions if she thinks politics does not enter into it. I agree that it should not but she of all people is being hypocritical to the max.
    • This may or may not be interesting to some people. I thought about this when talking about incidents in Orange County and Port Arthur. It is about police jurisdiction in Texas. Neither the Texas Penal Code nor the Code of Criminal Procedures (CCP) (which lists the authority to arrest) distinguishes between on and off duty peace officers. It states in what situations a peace officer has the authority to make an arrest but makes no other distinction. That is why people often say that Texas peace officers are on duty 24 hours a day. The law is not stated in those words but the Texas law does not note any kind of difference. The authority to make an arrest by a Texas peace officer is continuous. The CCP under authority to arrest without a warrant (Chapter 14) extends to outside the officer’s jurisdiction except class C traffic charges (basic citations like speeding, running stop sign , etc.) which authority is only “if the offense is committed in the county or counties in which the municipality employing the peace officer is located”. So the CCP gives the authority to arrest as anywhere except for traffic citations which is limited to anywhere in the county that the officer works. Port Arthur has jurisdiction then for traffic citations anywhere in Jefferson or Orange County. If a citation (or arrest) is made in those situations, the officer who is outside of his city has to issue the citation to the proper county precinct. For example a Port Arthur officer can issue a traffic citation in Bridge City but has to issue it in the jurisdiction of the Orange County Justice of the Peace for that precinct. An even further distance example is for instance if a Port Arthur officer was driving through Little Cypress to speak with a witness about something and saw somebody run a stop sign. The officer has the authority to issue a citation to that person or even make an arrest and bring the person to the Orange County jail.  The CCP also says that if a business serves the public it “may not prohibit or otherwise restrict a peace officer or special investigator from carrying on the establishment's premises a weapon that the peace officer or special investigator is otherwise authorized to carry, regardless of whether the peace officer or special investigator (a special investigator under Texas law is a federal agent such as FBI, DEA, etc.) is engaged in the actual discharge of the officer's or investigator's duties while carrying the weapon”. Note that it is regardless if the officer is engaged to an actual discharge of duty. That is basically saying off duty. The NFL a few years ago made a rule that firearms were prohibited in their stadiums by anyone except for an on duty police officer. But…. that does not apply in Texas as officers have 24 hour arrest authority anywhere in the state and that specific law that I quoted above which says it is against the law to stop them from entering. So off duty Texas peace officers can watch Dallas Cowboys or Houston Texans football games while carrying their off-duty handgun. To my knowledge that is the only NFL stadiums in the country where a police officers can carry their weapons off duty. The stadiums have a special point of entry at one of the entrance gates where on duty officers hired to work the event check the credentials of the off duty officer and note where the officer will be sitting. I have also done that at Minute Maid stadium for MLB.  So….. in Texas pretty much a cop is a cop no matter when or where. Game wardens, city police, county sheriffs and deputies, constables and deputies, school district police, DA investigator, fire department arson investigators, etc., are all listed as Peace Officers and even though they are hired to do a specific job, they have overall police powers. It is not that way in all states which sometimes distinguish between on and off duty, jurisdiction and what laws they can enforce. In Texas as an example a Texas game warden can make a traffic stop just as if he was a city police officer or a DPS trooper and make an arrest for DWI. City officer can likewise go into an alcohol licensed premises and enforce Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission laws just as if he was state TABC agent. In fact I was inspecting a bar one time and the bartender got in my way and told me to stop. He said that I did not have the authority to make  the inspection since I was not a TABC agent. I explained the law to him and said I was not going to interfere with his business but I was going to make my inspection. Twice more he interfered with my inspection so I arrested him on the spot. TABC suspended the bar’s alcohol license for 14 days (think of the money they lost) and the bartender received 14 days in the county jail for the interference.  Interesting? Not interesting? I do not always agree with the laws just as much as anyone else but I think the way that it functions is interesting. 
    • If it doesn't kill ya it'll make you stronger, the old saying goes.    Who knows? Maybe an efficient and very good slow down team, like Argyle, catches FF napping in the playoffs.
    • Back in the day when Beaumont had Central & Ozen a good Silsbee team could and did run the table in the golden triangle.  Now, with most of the talent headed to BU it is next to impossible to pull that off again.   P.S  Living in the past, I miss Devon McCain pulling a rebound and then coming down hill center court, with superior passing skills, throwing dimes to either  Bush or Jay5. Or he'd take it to the hole himself.  At the high school level that was very potent stuff.    
    • Silsbee is a great team but lets not get to far ahead, Bush, Adams or McCain isn't walking through that door next Tuesday, And even if they did I don't think any of them would be the best player on the court honestly.  But that's Okay, like another poster stated, the main thing for Silsbee is to get better each week and compete for a 4A title.  I do think it will be a very competitive game, and I love that we have two top ranked teams in the State right here in SETX.  Here's to an injury free and successful season for both teams
