Yes congrats to Beckley for finishing 5-5 in the regular season and backing into the playoffs. Our reward is a 6 hour trip to Martinsburg to probably lose 60-0 and then yes our final record will be 5-6 which is a losing one. Martinsburg hasnt lost in almost two years.

When your as bad as Beckley has been, you really get excited at finishing .500. Yikes!

Sorry but if we go up and get stomped, then making the playoffs was pointless.

Why do you have to be so negative ? Do you know that this is the first time we have been in the playoffs since 05 . I mean damn you have to have no life to just sit here and downgrade us , when all we ever wanted was support from our fans. Regardless of how bad coach lilly is you people should at least come watch us play . You guys should be ashamed of yourselves .

Have been to every home Woodrow game for 35 years so don't tell me about support. Its embarrassing a school as big as Woodrow and with the athletes hasn't been to the playoffs since 2005.

We shouldnt have gone to the playoffs this year because 5-5 is terrible! You dont deserve to be in the playoffs if you have to come in through the back door on your hands and knees. I too am a supporter of the student athletes at WWHS but the coach sux. I would feel ashamed to ride all the way to play Martinsburg just to get destroyed by them. WWHS doesnt have a snowballs chance in hades with the head coach they have. Playoffs? Ha HA hA ha ha ha. you mean we are the scrimmage game for martinsburg. They are going to eat us up and spit us out. LILLY MUST GO!!!!

Woodrow isn't a football school, never has been, never will be. they're a basketball school, and more recently a soccer school. they weren't state title capable, lower your expectations for God's sake.

I am leaving the game. Thought our kids played well. They had better players and coaches. They were just better all around. I listened on the headphones during the game, I didn't think we "played with them for the first half" as Bill and Maris said, but thought the kids showed heart regardless. Lilly looked content leaving the field, is making the playoffs what we are about now? Hopefully we can make some linemen in the offseason. If not, Johnson will run for his life again. Good effort to the players. Thank God he didn't wear black jerseys!

Really? Max Lilly is coaching? He isn't a teacher or taken his certification classes yet.

They needed someone to teach the new center how to snap the ball back on the ground everytime like his son did. Its the new fad in football.

rumor has it that he had a walk on scholarship. If that is what you want to call it. If you walk on, you have to pay your own way. If you demonstrate that you have enough athletic ability you might earn a football scholarship. Rumors are saying that he did not have enough ability to earn a scholarship out right or demonstrate that he could get one later on.

Rumor has it that the coach is grooming his son for coaching since the son was terrible at playing. It is interesting how the son does not work for the school system yet is coaching at the high school. Stevie Kidd should be next in line to receive a coaching position at the school. He has a proven track record of winning at the junior high level with several championships. Lilly has never ever won a championship in football on any level.

Beckley only has one football problem.
John Lilly. The man obviously has not shame. How can he look these kids in the face at the begining of the season knowing that they have no better than a medicore season in front of them with him at the helm.

who is his coaches this year?It hard for young people to adapt every year to new coaches. Why is it that the turnover of ast. coaches is so high at the school? is it something thats country wide or only at wwhs? Is this a problem that the new AD is going to address or is it just going to ngo down hill more?I was surpriced to hear Mr.Dillon stepped down, thats really going to hurt alittle because my grandson always talked about how he always made it fun for the students.Goodluck Eagles wish you the best.

Why do we keep talking about this idiot. I am sure he prints these posts and puts with his resume. All these times his name is mentioned online can be put on the wall with all of his coach of the year awards!

Mr. Dillon was out there lining the field for lilly. He was complicit in Lilly's running off players and coaches. It wont change now because Dillon is related to the jellyfish with no backbone. Yes I said it. Dillon knows Lilly is a terd because I told him that Lilly was a terd. Dillon did nothing and spent his time away from family and friends to do Lilly's job. Now that Dillon is a vice principal he will do nothing to help get us to a culture of winning. The school system is broken.

Lilly has done it now. He wants the field renamed after himself according to some sources and he is blaming players for losses of focus for the spring valley loss. Maybe it is because the player with a loss of focus had a severe concussion and should not have been playing in the game.

The signs are supposed to be at Zafs this saturday at 10. Go eagles

I am embarrassed to say that Lilly allowed that runningback from Cabell to earn a scholarship off his performance against the eagles. Lilly did nothing to stop the bleeding in the middle of our defense. There was a wide open revolving door there. I wonder who's son plays there?
