Is anyone hearing the rumors that Pittsburg is making a serious attempt to hire Coach Meeks and most of the varsity football staff?
How can we possibly let these great coaches get away to Pittsburg? Can we stop trying to make their lives miserable with all the whiney parents who think their son should be the superstar?
agree

I have heard the same thing, but how you could you blame them. As I sit in the stands on Friday nights I am embarrassed at what I hear is yelled out our boys and our coaches. Everyone quickly forgets how bad it was the years before Coach Meeks got here, now we think we should win State every year. Be thankful for what you have, we have to keep this from happening.

Pretty bad when other towns see how good we have it in Henderson and they want our Football staff, but we are to blind by selfishness and don't appreciate them. Coach Meeks has turned around our program, we can't let him go.
Thankful

Look at how many coaches left last year... When good coaches are leaving something is wrong! Best of Luck to Meeks and his family! They are good people!

With no pay raises, cry baby parents and half the city who think they are better coaches why wouldn't they want to leave. 11-2 in the playoffs the last three years and all you hear is griping and how sorry our coaches are. just make sure if you are a meek hater you apply for the job that way you can criticize your own self the way you have them. I hope they stay but understand why they would want to leave.
thanks

Coaches come and go. Its part of the business.I am not denying the fact the coach Meeks is a good coach, but sometimes change is good. Henderson could had won in the past, but a certain church cried about the kids not playing. It was until coaches stop listening to the church and let the kids with the talent play is when things turned around. I wish fans was supportive of all the sports and not just football.

All ways loved coaching in Henderson. We had the #1 ranked team on defense, I worked for Jimmy Watson(3yrs) and Dennis Alexander(2Yrs) Beat Chapel Hill in District and then lost to them in Play-off game. we had great kids and coaches. The big church ran me out of town(still running the athletic teams; I'm sure). The school fired me and then gave me a contract, that I signed and turned it in quickly. I just took half a salary to leave and was I messed up for doing that. I still hear from most of my former players there that we put through college and the NFL. Henderson will always have great teams, they never quit and will fight you to the end> Thanks Blue Dog defense

Dickey Meeks is just a drunk that let's the coaches do his job. Most of our wins have come from talent more than coaching. If we didn't have Monsta then we wouldn't have even gone to the playoffs. A prime example of how talent can get you only so far. And when Monsta or some other superstar got hurt we ended up losing or cutting a close game. A prime example that our coaching staff is not like that of Alabama or some intangible idol. We relied soley on just talent than coaching. Dickey is one of the biggest pricks around treats some like shit. Not saying that a coach doesn't have the right and I soley beleive that a coach should play the best to win. But he is far from a great coach. Also look at the teams we played in the playoffs. We never played a good team in the past three years till the third or fourth round. And two out of three years we lost. Proving that playing weak teams is what got the lions so far every year.

How sad is it that you let your jealousy shine so bright! I know you must be hurting and very upset that your town is losing a tremendous coaching staff! I know you must be nervous about the future! But The fact that you would slander a person that you don't even know!!!! Did you have any sort of personal relationship with any of the Henderson coaches? I'm not talking about a quick discussion as to why your child wasn't played, or you spouting off obscenities at a game or on a forum! I'm talking about an honest to goodness relationship with any of these fine coaches that you have had the privilege to coach your team?!!?
you'd better be real careful what you say! The Legal terms are Slander and defamation of character when someone says the things you just said on here. Can you say "investigation and lawsuit!" That being said, dickey Meeks is an outstanding person and Coach that i got know very well during his coaching at Pine Tree. He is desired by many Texas highschool football teams. You should really just move on and not let your fear of the future cause you so much hurt that you LIE bigger than Dallas!So I'll leave it at that and say, I wish the Henderson Lions much success in the future. It's sad when you don't have enough confidence in your team or town to just let the chips fall where they may.
Thankful
