In case some of you are too old to remember or to young to have been there or just haven't heard. The Gordonsville High School Tigers won the TSSAA Class A State Championship in 1984, they were also the 1983 Class A State Runner up. They even have a sign in Gordonsville that says so.

When those boys won, most of the county was pulling for them to win it all.

Something has happened since then and some people need to get over it and move on.

From what I have read and heard, most everyone outside of Gordonsville was pulling for South Pitt last week.

Now, with that being said and posted on here can all of you get over it and move on?

I personally hope they both lose every football game they ever play. Everybody acts like it's the only thing that matters. It's just a game, nobody in this county is good enough in either school to make anything out of it. If the kids were raised to play for fun and to enjoy it they might have some good healthy copetition. The way it stands right now it's the only thing in the world and it really isn't. The parents of these kids are the problem. They are the ones that need to grow up. Your children are ashamed of the way you act. Let kids be kids and have fun while they can. It won't be long before they wake up one day and the real world is where thay are. thats the day they realize football was just a game and they were so caught up in it the didn't even enjoy it.

Most of those guys moved on and were very successful. Brad Cowan,
Marc Lewis stand-outs. Butch Agee, Bob Dillard, Billy Swain, Stevie
King, Mark Vance, Lewis Wood,many more. All these guys I knew them
well, great parents that taught them values, and about life after football.Excellent coaches Mark Medley, Stanley Wills and T. Ford
These coaches taught them the importance of education, discipline,
and great work ethic. Most of these guys used their success in football as a stepping stone in the real world.Thanks Smith County
for your support this was a special time !! The parents of today
need to grow-up and shut-up!! No such thing as "problem children"
only "problem parents"!

The last two post hit the nail on the head. A very
special time in the past. Wonderful MEMORIES! We can make new ones if Smith County will unite.
Owls and Tigers both have great folks involved on
every level. Good luck and best wishes to both next
year!!
