Hampton's Varsity Basketball has been placed on probation by the TSSAA because the assistant coach M. Matheson, was practicing with the team this summer, which is against rules. They have also been levied a fine. Why should the kids be punished for something that was not their fault? We should not have incompetent people involved with our children's sports programs.

Why is someone not connected with the school coaching? Why didn't he get a degree and coach or grow up and get a life. Either way he had no business there.

I can't believe the TSSAA did anything when you look at the rampant recruiting that goes on in Carter County that they overlook.

Its a shame these kids work hard and are penalized from others stupidity. If this true then this coaches head needs to be on the block. He should have known better! This is another incident this will probably be swept under the rug as usual. The director of schools and management staff at said school needs to step up and remove these problems at each school. Sounds like too many volunteers have way too much control. CLEAN UP THE SYSTEM NOW OR CLEAN OUT CENTRAL OFFICE!!!

I heard that Hampton has recruted a boy from Daniel Boone High School. I really thought Smith would bring some integrity back to Hampton but looks like he has feel in to the good ole boy system with the rest of the thugs. Its a shame if the school is on probation because of some wanna be coaches. Clean up your act and clean out all your closets....play fair!

Matheson should have been gone a long time ago...too much vulgar language he tries to run the sports program and all the money let the boys play ball and take out the trash if you know what i mean...

I thought he was only working the sports complex and referring the ball games. That's a big difference between coaching.

Hampton may be in more trouble soon. Coach Smith and staff are breaking several tssaa rules. They are using the sports complex as a recruiting tool. They have players from Johnson county, avery county, and now one from Boone. This is a shame! Bringing kids in like this is not fair to other conference teams as well as the young men who are really from Hampton. I just hope something is done soon.

First of all ned had absolutly nothing to do with this kid comming he played aau ball with some of our guys this summer and his dad told he he was unhappy at boone and liked hamptons style of play. And as for mike matheson he has not been coaching he is an offical at the sports complex. Please get your facts before you spout off on here but i know facts dont exist on this pittiful websight . Bob mcclain has been coaching every game i have seen this summer. Jealousy is a bitch aint it?

What has McClain got to do with it anyway? He lost his seat on the school board but not before he moved his son to Central Office. He couldn't make it as a player when he was in school so he is trying to make it through his grandsons. He failed to rear a star with his sons. Making a kid a star in a small community like Hampton only sets them up to be disappointed later. Like Matheson they never get over the small stardom. they stay stuck in high school the rest of their lives. It should be about education. It should also be about getting on in the rest of the world. Fifty miles away they don't even know Hampton exist. How sad that people never grow up.

Bob volunteered to help get our boys playing inthe summer so we will b better in the fall. People who are not willing to do anything to help and just sit around and bitch are pathetic. So until u have something intelligent or at least helpful to say please shut up and stop showing your stupidity.

What rules are being broken the kid from Johnson county sat out his year and now he is eligible and both lane smith and Stanley are hampton residents so they can play right away this all sounds like it's coming from either a jealous parent or kid who knows his playing time will b cut. If you can show what they have done illegal I'd love to hear it. Otherwise tell your kid to buckle down and improve cause the best players will and should play. This ain't youth club anymore. Go dogs

If smith is a resident, then why is his brother still in the Avery county school system? If they did not change their primary residence then he was ineligible. All you would need to do is check the parents driver license.

You do not have to teach to be an assistant and if you ever wore the Hampton jersey you would know it stays in your blood trust me I'd love to be involved if my job schedule would allow. I think it's great to have coaches who know our rich history and help to carry it on.

I played with Ned in 91 and have known him most of our lives and he and his family are some of the best around this area.as I posted on here earlier Ned has had nothing at all to do with Stanley coming here from Boone he played aau ball with some of our boys and developed a good relationship with them an he was unhappy at Boone to my knowledge Ned didn't even meet him until school started. This a very nice young man and we are blessed to have him in bulldog blue. Go dogs
