Hey boys basketball is still the winning sport in DeSoto, Missouri. So far the ones who thought it would tank when Al Davis retired. WRONG! Now are you convinced there is life left for basketball in DeSoto without "Al mighty God " Davis? The football program may even take off now.

You are right, but with the seniors they have this year they should be winning! They have some good players and let's not forget who has coached them for the last 3 years..... That would be Coach Davis!!!

Why can't people just let coach Davis retire in peace. You need to find something else to talk about.

This in reply to Football Fan or should I say "Football Coach". Basketball is king in DeSoto has been for the last 30 plus years always will be unless Bobby Thompson gets his way and runs the program in the ground. The basketball team should still be winning they return 4 seniors and the best JV player in the county last year. The teams they have played this year have a combined record of 19-48 so I will wait on my assesment until the end of the year and the play their last 7 games against quality opponents. I hope they have a good season I wish them the best of luck. Now lets get to the football program. I did some research under Thompson the 6 years their record under Thompson is 30-33 with 2 quality wins, meaning teams that ended the season with a winning record. This year after Coach Davis left their record was 3-7. Thompson and his "boys" have enough time to turn this program around and we get a record of 30-33 with 2 quality wins now thats a program taking off. Now that's a record a "Football Fan" should be proud of. I have said my peace.
The Truth will set you free!

The boys are 8-1
I think the new coach is doing a great job filling some big shoes. But yes your right they have some great seniors on the team that have been trained by one of the best coaches ever in high school hoops.

I have enjoyed reading this blog about the former coach Davis and everyone wanting them to guit ridiculing him. Well as I read it Coach Bobby Thompson keeps getting hammered on also but no one seems to say "lets leave coach Thompson alone".

When you can tell me one good thing Thompson has done for this district the hammering of him may stop. The thing is, the only thing he has done as AD is hire bad head coach's in all sports and take home a big paycheck. I sorry he can win games against cupcake teams. I am issuing a challenge to anyone that can say what he has done for this district and community ti deserve the pay he gets. He is just another John Freeman hire that no other school district wanted.

This is the craziest stuff I have ever heard. 1st when the basketball team was barely winning, it was the new coaches fault. Now they have blown out their last 4 opponents, it is because Coach Davis has coached them the last 3 seasons. I have seen a drastic improvement in the boys performance in a short amount of time. I guess that has something to do with Davis too. He retired for a reason, his recruits graduated. He is already talking about taking over St. Pius next season. This new guy is winning with home grown boys. And that opponent record is not even close. This new guy doesn't have the accomplishments Davis has, but he is a young guy. How is he supposed to do that without time.

I'll defend Mr. Thompson! I teach in the high school and last year when he was acting as principal he did an excellent job! He juggled ad responsibilities, principal responsibilities, and coaching very gracefully. He supports the teachers while doing what is in the best interest of the kids.... As for football coach I don't really know much because I don't coach sports, but I know several of the boys he has coached and they all sing his praises and that he has helped instill much more than football like integrity, honesty, fortitude, and high character. Does every kid love him? No! But no one is perfect and its impossible to please everyone... And the kids that don't like him or talk bad about him are kids that are usually causing trouble, just like the kids that talk bad about other teachers and administrators, i do not think that's a coincidence. As for wins and losses, maybe you should point the fingers at your own kids or yourselves? It's your genetic pool that is on the field! Do your kids workout in the offseason? It's easy to do all the pointing, but most of the time it's the person in the mirror that is to blame!

Hey "Football Fan" I don't have a son who sits the bench, fact is I don't have a boy at all. I have come to the conclusion you are a football coach for Thompson and trying to keep your job. SO YOU GET OVER IT and MOVE ON TO A DIFFERENT SCHOOL.

I couldn't agree with you any more. He only cares about himselfnd how much power he can have. If he is so great how come he has ran off athletes that prosper in other sports. The only ones I hear defending him is all his coach's that do nothing all day. Why do we need so many coach's for football but not for any other sports. I still haven't heard any specific good thing he has done for the district or the community. Come on boys lets hear about his great things.

I have taught in several school districts, I am not a football coach. Coach Thompson is the best thing for De Soto school and athletics. Part of what makes him so great is he doesn't listen to dumb asses like you guys. He is steady. I have been in districts where administration actually listens to this shit and you should see what kind of disastrous results you get when important decisions are based on ignorance

Oh but they can fire a Superintend over an anonymous letter?????? Our administration isn't any better!!!!

I haven't called anyone names (unlike you). I am just stating my opinion...... Thompson is a fake. Now I will say when he first came to DeSoto I was liked him and thought he was the best thing for our district, but then the last 2 years I have seen hoe he is..... It is ok to like him, I don't care, but personaly I think he is an ass!

Good day....

Anyone who thinks this new basketball coach is doing a good job is...CRAZY. Most of these kids were coached by Davis the last 3 years. Why all this riduculing of Coach Davis? Get over him...he was a great, successful coach who Bobby Thompson was so jealous of he made his life miserable enough to leave what he loved doing best. Bobby Thompson is a joke. Self-serving, egotistical and pretty much worthless. Then, again, most of the DeSoto "click" is worthless. Gotta love a school who allows a certain female coach to do all the things she has done and still keep a job...oh...but Bobby Thompson likes her. Hmm....

I couldn't have said it better myself. If anybody watched the game against Central in the Christmas tournament can tell this new coach has lost control of the team. Thompson is a joke but don't forget about his buddy in crime Dan Hoehn. When will people wake up and run this "click" out of town. I offered up challenge a few days back for someone to come up with anything good that Thompson has done for this district and community, as of het I have no one has come up with anything to change my mind.
