Well I see Shawn Jones is still trying to coach at south Greene. How does he keep that job? Is it because no one cares? Or does he think he is doing a good job?
I was told he stepped down last year after south Greene stepped down too single A and still sucked.
They are talented kids out there. If the right coach could get to them they would do very well. They is not as much talent as there was in the 90s or early 2000s however Jones would lose with those kids too. Jones is a nice guy just no coaching. Also where did Adam Hansel go. I thought he was helping or going to take it over out there?

A lot of people in the South Greene community complained about having to play Greeneville. They said that they stepped down in a smaller class just to win. Now South Greene has stepped down and still losing. I guess blaming the coach is another excuse. Get a new coach and still lose, who do you blame then? I guess maybe you could drop down to playing elementary schools. One thing I have noticed after reading the lady rebel and boys football threads, is a lot of people in the South Greene community sure do like to complain!

They have played one game. . And Sullivan central is not a single a school. Wait and judged them after they have actually played somebody in their district. ...lol

Hansel got smart and went to Greeneville, more money! He was told fball would be his, but it never happened and he got tired of waiting. Their loss! It will be a long year for our fball team.

Not sure about fball, but we want to play Greeneville in all the other sports. It was our AD's decision. As far as complaining, when your school had a great coach and his state championships were proof and they remove him your going to complain when he's replaced with someone that doesn't put forth effort or doesn't have the work ethic! We want our school and community to have the best!

I think they win out rest of the year and go 9-1 in conference.And dominate the single A playoffs for a first time single A State Championship. Bring home the Gold ball boys. What you all think?

You are clueless. At least the girls basketball team wins. Look at his record. Look at volley ball team and record. So I can see why you hate the joke of a coach for football. However to hate on Gregg is not really understandable. Gregg wins, also this year and next they will win state or at least be runner up. However Jones on football has taken what Larry ricker worked so hard to build and he has destroyed it. What used to be a double A team that went to play off eight years in a row and Greenville did not want to play. Has turned in to a program that can't win in single A and Greenville wish they could play every week.
You think Jones would see what he is and step down. Unless he has wanted to take the program down. If thats is the case then he is coach of the decade.

Yeah can't understand why the principal keeps Jones there. You would think they would want the team to win and to do that you need a coach with some skills. What has he got over her to keep him there. Any other school would have fired him before this
I feel sorry for the boys who have to endure everything and still get punished because they don't win..

Does it really matter that much about winning out . I am from Greeneville but keep up with all county schools sports. As far as the basketball they have always had girls move in from other schools or county's . One or two good athlete s can really be the difference in a win or lose. The football team from what I have seen is a fine group of young men. Don't be haters look at the big picture it the academic picture is what really counts. I enjoy seeing the boys having fun playing football playing in the band at half time escorting the girls in homecoming. Keep the fun in sports and the parents out of it and you will have a happier kid . Look at Greeneville it's a year round sport and the kids are not able to participate in the band at half time or escort the girl it's all about winning . Keep it fun let kids be kids .

I have lived in Greeneville for a very long time and I can't seem to remember these teams. Are you sure you are not speaking of the girls basketball team. South Greene may have beat Greeneville once, possibly twice in football in my entire life time. I can assure you that Greeneville has never been threatened by South Greene in football. They may worry about the idiots riding around with a rebel flag in the back of their jacked up pick ups, but not their football team. How funny!

You don't understand. All these kids are going to go pro some day if they could just get a good coach.

Can't agree, sorry. Gregg has been the girl's basketball coach how long now? Yeah, like really a long time. So many great players who could have taken this team to state and he had NO CLUE. He still has no clue. If he makes it anywhere this year, it will be luck. Don't get me wrong, we have some good players, but Gregg stinks at basketball. Let him coach volleyball all day long, but we need another basketball coach so very badly!!!!!!!!!! Trust me, many parents think the same way but are scared to death to say anything.

Well if the school system gets their way, the parents will probably end up being gotten out of the way. What a dumb statement. What a mean statement.

Wasn't mean go to a random county pee wee or midget basketball game. Go to a elementary game and set in the stands and listen . The coaches work hard to teach these kids some basic basketball skills and teamwork. Then you bring the parents into the picture and they undermine the coach . The coach is saying one thing and mom and dad telling them to do something else . The sad thing is most parents thing there kid is a superstar and can do no wrong. When in fact they are learning life lessons if you don't work hard and put forth the effort you want be playing.

I agree with a lot of your statement. A lot of parents think they are still playing ball through their kids. They just can't seem to let it go.
