I wish for all of our brothers and sisters in SETX to reach this point. PNG is blessed beyond all thoughts to have had this run we are on. Every school in our coverage area deserves this opportunity. Once again Thank you all for your support. It has been amazing. 

Agreed. I’m hoping Joseph’s success with the Indians signals to the state’s top coaching talent that Southeast Texas has the right mix of talent, resources and community support to be successful. Scott Rich’s arrival in Nederland suggests that might be happening.

Are you just gonna gloss over the big hire that BC made this offseason?

I think Jeff wants to carve out his own path...call me the minority but I don't think he ends up being at Katy

I'm sure he may want to end up at a big school eventually and that groves is a stepping stone. The golden triangle doesn't have the best quality of life , hard to want to stay there unless you're from there and trapped . Just my opinion

Money talks. I'm now leaning more towards he stays at Png until he's not wanted there. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Obviously you have never been to the Riverside Tavern.

With PNG being land locked, I don’t see them ever going up from 5A D2, which is their favor. Might get a couple more rings

It’s not a land issue, it’s a demographic issue. The population in PN-GISD is getting younger. Old folks are dying off, and their homes are being bought by young families moving in with increasing frequency. Factor in that PN-GISD is more attractive than some of its neighbors right now thanks to the newer schools, the quality of education and the recent extracurricular success, and you have an easy explanation for the ~20% enrollment growth that’s occurred over the last ten years while the neighboring Jefferson County districts have all either flat-lined or shrunk. You also have an explanation for Groves posting the highest growth rate in the county and the third highest in the MSA on the 2020 census.

We’re a lot closer to 5ADI numbers than people realize.

I lived down there for close to 20 years, I’m aware of the demographics. PNG will stay under the D1 enrollment for the foreseeable future. The number may rise at HS 200-300, but so will the bottom number of 5A D1. Just don’t see it happening. It’s a good thing for PNG though.

after looking, I will say they’re closer then what I thought.
