I have been a true fan of gc for many years. I just don't understand why this coach isn't playing her true best five girls on the court. These girls should be dominating the district this year. I have watched the past few games and girls are being subbed in and out faster than pals hands out tea. There are some girls that simply don't belong out on the court right now until their skills are better. I wouldn't dare hurt this team with that kind of subbing. In my opinion, and many others, their are truly 8-9 girls on that team that should be playing and the others can come in if they r up by 15 to 20 points. Kelly looks like she is angry at her team and she doesn't realize how angry people are with her for not having sense enough to be a good coach. The failure out their is her subbing! Quit looking like its them, it's you. And she is coach of the year. Coach of the year knows NOT to give playing time to ones that are playing on a 8th grade level. We watched one girl talk back to Jeremy on the bench line and he took it. Hell if that was bill Houseright on the football field, he'd would have run his butt off. Jeremy looks like he has no authority on this team which is hurting these girls. Last year we all know what changed this team and that's when Jeremy stepped in and took these girls to state. Kelly needs to realize she has great help and utilize it. If not some of these girls that really have a shot are going to hurt from her stubbornness. One of the players came out of the locker room after the game in tears from her criticism. Maybe she needs to realize a real coach might chew your a$$ off,but will also turn it around that you are better than this and can do it. You don't criticize with personal emotion. Your killing your team. I know talented previous girls that have said the same thing. I believe if Kelly would use what talent she has right now it would change the mentality on the bench. I don't want to even say the names of what girls that are hurting us, but a blind man could figure it out. This isn't upward Kelly. Play those girls if we have a good lead. Don't play NO ONE that won't go after a ball, can't catch a ball, and can't shoot a ball. Come on. Stop chewing out the girls working their A$$ off bc you have no real help out there for them. I can tell you this. When you act like that, you don't know how many people would like to chew your a$$ out for your lack of coaching. You have some talented girls. Your the one who got coach of the year you should be able to figure it out. Girls keep your head up.

I'm not out to list this girls names. And I'm one voice of many. And I will assure you I am not a coach and definitely have a brain of like a coach if the year should have. But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell you which girls are playing before others that is weaker. Why ask me who they should be? Check their stats. Listen all these kids are good kids. The coach has some thinking to do and the worse thing she can do is treat her team like they are failures. Me , past players, and many others know mrs. Houseright is not a motivator.she criticizes these girls personally when she needs to be looking in a mirror. I'm know the woman does have some good talents. We saw it come alive last year. And that was actually letting someone coach that the girls will respond better too. Thats a fact. check her coaching record out. Kelly has a good thing going just needs to remember to keep the game simple. If not, this will be a awful season for this team and fans. Lets go wake the sun up. Prayed and praying for gate city kids.

Sounds as if you need to be the coach for this team. With all the times you have been in the stands watching so many different coaches that you have picked up enough of pointers so that you could motivate the player. I am sure that the school board would allow you to help with your background.

Let's just say "some parents" have alot of influence on their kids playing time with Coach H. Let's just leave it at that.

Hasn't GC had that problem in certain sports for the past thirty years? I don't expect that much will change in the very near future. Not only has that problem existed in sports but who is hired as a coach or a teacher in this county. Why should it change? All you need to do is look at those in the CO and those who serve on the school board. Facts are facts and you must get use to it. Change comes very slow in this county as well as many other counties. So you are right when you say"Let's leave it at that".

You're the one that brought it up, be ready to stand behind your accusations if you are going to call her out.

Oldtimer, I am assuming you watch the boys team as well. If you have issues with the girls coach playing her "picks" then don't you have a problem with the boys coach. He seems to coach around one "pick" all the time.

Vermillion? I thought Ervin was the Coach? If he is not coaching, are other parents allowed to hang around?

Here is my response to your wonderful idea get a coaching job and back up what your saying otherwise if you don't like what you see then by ALL means don't go to the games, did you ever stop to think that the very ones that you say agrees with you could just be saying that so you will shut your mouth!!! Get over yourself if you knew that much you would be the head coach. Do everyone a favor if you are soooooo very concerned then be a man and go to the coach and tell her to her face instead of being a coward and posting on here, really do you think that anyone on here is going to be able to help you get the results you want? Your obviously not as smart as you think you are. I do however have one more point, there many MORE people that support Ms. Houseright than don't, so go on big boy let's see what you got. I am so tired of everyone having an opinion about coaching and they have never held the position or they couldn't hold on to it, either way if it upsets you and the rest of the sideline coaches then please do everyone a favor and stay home you ruin it for EVERYONE!!! If you can't be supportive and we don't really want you there!!!

Sick of Sideline Coaches, Your location is ironic.

Anyway, I agree side line coaches are quite annoying and everyone thinks they could do a little better. However, I disagree with you saying "go tell the coach" The houseright family is involved several sports. They are the only people I know that are allowed 4 family members on one coaching team, a husband and wife coaching and teaching together, one that got a head coaching job and is was not employeed by the school system, etc. Really who is going to stop them. They obviously think their coaching style is right, if not they would change it.
