The truth

We are going to think positive. I looked back at the first two years of Meeks at HHS. 5/15 they went 1-9 in 07, 4-6 in 08. Spoiled fans now. Our guys have it hard with new coaches, new system and inexperience. Tired of all the negatives. Every school go through transition. Players keep your heads up and coaches keep pushing. Henderson fans shame on you if you don't support these young men. I don't care about the opinions but I do care how fans show their lack of support. Last Friday was shameful when many left early. So if they make a run and get into the playoffs then what?

<quoted text>The talent that the lions have on offense this year the coaches had last year. He failed to implement those same players to make the team more stronger. In my eyes a coach is suppose to know his talent and when he sits there and dont use the talent to its full potential then yes I blame the coach.
are a moron. Very plain and simple. Sounds like you didn't get a "fair chance"... The reality is you were the fastest swimmer..... Only once.. Douchebag

We have 6 starters and 7 guys that played back from Defense last year, so we should be as bad as we are on Def. And offensively we have the talent to be better. The coaches need to adapt there thinking to the talent we have. We should not be having a "Rebuilding Year"
Coaches need to get there act together.
I saw the game the secondary looked decent on pass coverage in the first half the biggest problem i saw with the defense was defending the run. And a big lack of motivativation from the team when they were behind. I do how ever think yhey have something to work with give them a few more weeks

A little different situation. Meeks inherited a team that that had not been winning. Castles inhereted a team that has won 33 games in last three years. That's more wins than most people play games. I am fine with a little slow up being a new system, but the talent is there for us to be in the play-offs.

No Castles did not inherit a team that won 33 games... he came to a program that had won 33 games in 3 years. The team he inherited had no starter returning on offense and only 4 that started on defense from the 2012 team. So essentially the Lions have between 10-16 players that had no varsity experience. The talent comparison between the last 3 years and this year is no where close. It is like Meeks had it when he came.... just like starting over.

Meeks inherited a team with a losing attitude, Castles inherited one with a winning attitude.

Henderson was not good in the early periods. Again, if the system was the same like it was in the day, most likely Henderson wouldnt never won a champioship.Now we have become expert football analyst with amnesia.I support these kids 100 percent.Go Lions

No offensively Davis, Hollins, Dickeson all were starters with McNew, Staneart, and Lister all with varsity playing time.
And Defensively you have Hollins, Dotson, Goode, Armstrong Burney, Staneart, that all started last year with Thurkill coming in for Bo Brady.
So he didn't inherit a team with no experience.

Congrats to our boys last night getting that win before district starts. Let's get rolling!

I do not, repeat do not understand the coaches philosophy. You can not play the second half of a game passing only. The quarterback is not a runningback. We played like we were way behind or something. The starting back was back from a injury and all week long peopl was wondering would he be ready to play. Well he played on the sidelines. Coaches must put our guys in the best position to win. The talent level is not bad but the coaches are killing these guys confidence.

To be fair its pretty pathetic that the school board took so long to get a new coach in here. If it was known that Meeks was gonna bolt after last season there should have been someone hired as soon as possible instead of waiting so long.
Lmao!!!! You are so right!!! You made me spit my drink up!!!
