Flem Bodad Varney has to be in this conversation. All-state...hall of famer...went on to Marshall. IMO, Bodad, Rick kestner, Floyd Hatfield, David Jones and Doug Howard

THE MULES: Philip Varney, Jordan Clevenger, Josh Cullop, Zack Staton, Mitch Case. They were a great group who worked very hard for the team. without them blocking, game over.

WELL DAVID JONES,DOUG HOWARD WERE NOT BELFRYS PLAYERS JONES WAS A MATEWAN PLAYER THAT WAS RECRUITED TO BELFRY N HOWARD FROM WILLIAMSON. BELFRY CANT WIN A GAME WITHOUT TWO OR THREE RECRUITS. I BELIEVE BELFRY WORST THAN LOGAN ON RECRUITING. WHAT IS EVERYONES THOUGHT ON BELFRY USING RECRUITS? YOUR SON SONS SIT ON BENCH FOR THEM TO PLAY. BACK IN THE DAY YA STAYED AT YOUR HOME SCHOOL AN DIDNT LEAVE YOUR FRIENDS AN COACHES. NOW WHEVER THEY GIVE YA THE BEST DEAL. ON JONES WHAT DID BELFRY OFFER JOB FOR FAMILY,MONEY,CAR,CLOTHES ETC? HE DIDNT COME ON OWN FREE WILL HE HAD FRIENDS AN FELLOW FOOTBALL PLAYERS THAT HE GREW UP WITH PLAYED FOOTBALL,BASKETBALL ETC SO YOU TELL ME PIKE COUNTY WAS THIS HOW YA WANT TO WIN STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS? I KNOW ITS GREAT TO BE NUMBER 1 BUT AT WHAT COST ARE YA PROUD 3 4 5 PLAYERS WERE NOT BELFRY PIRATES THEY WERE MATEWAN,WILLIAMSON,BURCH,TUG VALLEY PLAYERS.

The reason they come to BELFRY is to learn how to play the game the right way! And once a PIRATE always a PIRATE!

You asked, "WHAT DID BELFRY OFFER JOB FOR FAMILY, MONEY, CAR, CLOTHES ETC?". Do you think they offered the Howards the same thing(s)? Did Howard need their money? Maybe his father needed a job? Or could it be, Doug needed a car? You've got be kidding! It's obvious that you don't know David Jones, his family or his motives. Jones lived with his mentor/care-taker David Cook. Cook was a good father-figure to Jones and a very good provider. Thanks to this man and a lot of hard work, Jones had the chance to play on two state chamionship teams at Belfry and then play at the University of Kentucky.
Could it be that these kids want to come to Belfry they are close to the Southside Mall? NOT!!! They are coming to Belfry so they can play for championships? Some are coming to Belfry because they want to play for Phillip Haywood (the all-time winningest coach in KY)? If you had a son, where would you send him to play football (Yogi @ Mingo Central or Haywood @ Belfry)? You call it recruiting, I call it choice! As for me, I was s Tiger by birth...but a Pirate by choice!!!!

some of the best players were never discover in the late 70s early 80s because they were never given the opportunity to play. this is because dick roddy and steve mickey would play the students whos parents would donate the most money. though i do still have respect for dick roddy, he was a good coach. But steve Mickey was and still is a joke and should have never been a coach.
