I will be the first to say it... although it should have happened a long time ago, after last nights embarassment to GW the entire Woodrow Wilson football coaching staff needs to be fired! Coming off of such a horrible year last year we heard the usual again this year about the "excitement". blah blah blah but a 55-12 loss to start the season??? The school is too big with far too many athletes going there for them to continue to put this product out on the football field. It's obvious the coaching staff has NO CLUE what they are doing!!!

This is pathtic and unacceptable. All I read in the paper yesterday was how excited everyone was and how this year was a playoff team. What a bunch of crap. I have defended beckley football for a while but this has got to stop. Losing a game is tolerable but not even being competitive that's a whole different story.

I personally feel as if it is the coaching. WWHS has a mound of talented players that have been playing since midget league and middle school. These same kids were winners. Now, all of a sudden they get to hish school and forget the game. NAH!! These kids are out of position. Half of them aren't even getting a shot and when they do, they aren't in their proper position. You can't take a kid who plays center and then expect him to be able to be fast enough to play outside and get stops. Not happening. I am trying to be supportive but it is embarassing and a disappointment because these boys are better than this.

You are right. Wrong kids in the wrong spot. Now before everybody says either support them or don't say anything, I do support them. I will be at every home game and a few of the away games, but they need to at least be able to compete. They need to do something with the offense. Any good coach can look at the formation and tell what is coming. It's pretty sad when the people in the stands can do this aslo.

you know what the hell is going on at woodrow. Everyone in beckley and hell a few people out of state knows something is going on with the football team. The defensive coach especially needs fired. I mean they put the same amount of points as they did last year. Of all the rumors I hear about lilly they must have some truth to them because of how the teams are performing. He runs his best athletes off because of not wanting them to play other sports. Its a shame. Back when coach vanmeter and coach barksdale was around the best athletes played most if not all sports. Thats why those coaches had so many championships. They supported all sports.

Lilly doesn't know what is going on or how to coach football. he doesnt know how to relate to his players. It sounds as if he has a nepotism problem by favoring his son over more qualified players. He is going to cause his son embarrasment because the players on the team know that he should not be on the field. Please get rid of lilly!!!!!!!!!!

Culicerto was just as inept as lilly but just a little less. remember Culicerto won his only state championship in his first year as head coach with coach Hicks team. Culi never won another championship and that is his legacy and the legacy of woodrow football. Great players but inept coaches.

I am of the opinion WWHS should be competitive every year in every sport. I was pleasantly suprised and impressed with Lilly early on but now he has alienated not only the fans but Beckley in general. I find it sickening that there are no former Flying Eagles on staff. Lucky for Lilly the state of WV does not operate like Ohio or Pennsylvania because if it did he would be coaching at a middle school.

This has been going on for years with Lilly. What does talking about it resolve? Nothing. There is nothing that can be done to get him out!!!! Greenbrier East has always been a joke, and now they are the one's laughing.....at the new joke... Woodrow Football. I feel sick for the boys. I know several that refuse to play and now, I see why.

I went to school there in the '70s. My son plays today. I am very proud of the team. I have a good "in" as to the attitudes of the players. They are positive and believe things will get better. They are sticking together no matter what. They hear or don't hear the crowd and when they hear the crowd even when they are down it really helps them.

Regardless of what you think about the coach, support the guys who have been in the weight room getting ready for this season since November last year on a continuous basis. Anybody hear about the HIT Man sessions. High Intensity Training. Only the best survive those voluntary sessions. I would have vomited more than once.

Be there for the team and support them.

you say the coaching staff should be fired but in fact the real coaching staff has already quit. Now its just lilly and a couple bums from east beckley that he can boss around. You need to catch up a little bit.

players worked hard when sarrett did the strength and conditioning. Lilly kicked him out because he "expects too much". he did expect alot and thats how he made men of legursky, carter, peters and countless others. you mean you have to sweat a little bit to become great??? imagine that!
