Things ain't the same in Beckley. My nephew was on the team and quit cause they way he was treated by the assistant coach. Said others quit to. What's up with all this?
Barksdale could coach

It's really a shame what has happened to the program. Ron Kidd is a great guy. BUT.....will never be able to replace Barksdale. It is so hard to get rid of a High School coach...Barksdale's teams packed the Armory every game...nobody goes to the games anymore...just sad........In a perfect world Barksdale should be asked to come back while he is still in the area and still has the fire to coach...probably never happen..but could you imagine the excitement that would create for the program and attendence...guaranteed win/win

Barksdale admitted to players that he should have retired right after Tamar slay left. Beckley needs a coach who only goes on talent not who your father, brother, uncle, or family is. Like Ron kidd and barksdale have both destroyed kids basketball dreams and lives. Beckley have the best players in the state and other counties and cities would agree but their not being seen.

The assistant apologized and asked him to come back. What's goin on that it got so twisted that my nephew had to leave? That's what I want answered Things have changed since I graduated. I'll always be an Eagle but I won't bow.

Problem now a days is kids cant take someone telling them what they need to hear. If these cry-babies cant deal with Kidd telling them what they need makes you think they could ever handle Barksdale. He was the most intense coach I ever had but he cared more than anybody and every person that ever played for him would go to war for him. Kids today don't want anybody getting in their @ss

That's not true barksdale was an opportunist just like ton Kidd. But the only difference is Ron Kidd tries to run the program exactly like barksdale. He does the very same pre game and after game rituals barksdale did nothing different. If you didn't win barksdale would shun you. And you will not receive your basketball letters. And also some people should have never been on the team. They would even tell you that they never wanted to play they were only there because of their people.
