When are they going to get rid of this "coaching" staff? This team has some very good players but the coaching is awfull. This guy should have been gone a long time ago. Would love to see this team under the coaching of a Wilson or Seals wife Cristy, BJ or even some of the local city / travel coaches like Mike Henson or Brad Christopher, John Sang etc. Way to much talent to waste with these coaches. Even more amazing is the number of players that do not play for HHS even though they go there and the number of them that go to another school just so they can play under other coaches.

You continue to try and get people to bash HHS softball. After several attempts maybe you should realize that you are the problem and not the coaches, take your daughter and leave, and stop whining. Get a life you poor miserable soul!

So you tired of losing yet? Not only losing but not even scoring runs even against class A teams. Granted, a VERY good class A team but class A not AAA. As you all think it is just bashing you must be comfortable with losing. It has become a tradition and if you know it or not, a lot of the teams in the area make fun of these kids and talk about an :easy: game against HHS and THAT is what bothers me. These kids have talent but are being made fun of by other teams both on and off the field. By the way, other high school coaches talk about how good this team could be so it is not just me. Hope they turn their season around and get some confidence back. Say what you want, starts with coaching.

Wow - so how did the season go for you? Yet another losing season and to end it by being up 3 - 1 in the last inning with two outs and LOSE - Really!!??

Tell me again how I am "bashing" the coaches.

By the way. I was umpiring last night and some kids who lost came in to play with their city team. They all talked about how much better the coaching is in East Huntington League than high school!! They are all looking forward to the rest of the year in city / travel teams so they can play competitive ball. If you think that is "bashing" so be it.

When a team wins it is the players, and when a team loses it is the coaches. If you are so unhappy take your child elsewhere. Get her ready for pro softball don't worry about getting her ready for the real world.

I don't have a dog in this race... However.. I have heard a lot of negative things about coaching at HHS. It is what it is and that is simple. A lot of talent but needs the right coaches. Brad and mike have coached a lot of young ladies and do well with them. His "precious" daughter is one of rate form not cocky level headed and encouraging to other players. The kid loves the game and is dang good at it! Mike and brad coach consistent and fair. The hateful condescending comments are a reflection of the bitterness somewhere in your own situation. They would be great coaches FLAT OUT! If I had a kid that played I'd want her under their leadership. Good ol school coaching not the politics and Butkiss and the who ya know that goes on. Perhaps those are the interest that motivate u to speak so negatively. Oh well doesn't matter. Hopefully HHS can get it together there's some talented girls that have been and are coming through.

2 questions for this last post ?
1. why, if your REALLY in Manasas, VA, would the coaching situation at Huntington, WV High School concern you....unless your a BC suckup.....
and 2. if BC's daughter is playing at Cabell Midland...why would he want to coach at Huntington ?
pardon me for asking !

When Johnny mentioned 2 state championship. If it weren't for BJ being there the championships would not have happened.
