Are you crazy? Matt and that other goofy looking assitant coach has done a crap job. They know nothing about basketball. I hope they are not the coaches next year. There are alot more qualified people that deserve the positions. They have upset alot of parents. And i think they have been very unprofessional. I think the JMS should have removed them already. I know we would have won more games. JMS Please get some real coaches next year, they are horrible. Before the community desides they need a new principal down there too.

First of all.. No, they have done a horrible job. You have Justin that has never played basketball and Matt was a good athlete, he's just not a good coach. And I was seriously pulling for him at the beginning of the season. Secondly, the JMS boys had one killer basketball program this summer. What happened to that? And my son plays on the team. He gets playing time also. An excessive amount. I just do not like the way they handle a team. Very unprofessional.
Horrible coaches

I totally agree. They are sad excuses for coaches. And there are alot of people upset because of how unprofessional they are. They are sad excuses for coaches. JUSTIN... ha ha ha. Thats just funny. Does he coach the kids or do they coach him? And sometimes i think Matt should be coaching grown ups instead of our kids the way he talks and screams. Does he have anger issues? JMS needs new coaches in a bad way. There are alot of better choices.

I think Matt has done a wonderful job with these boys this year. You really have to admire a young man to come in and work with these young boys. I think all this is, is a bunch of jealous parents because their kids are not getting to play. Well guess what!!!! This is not junior pro ball if you want your kids to get more practice and playing time then take them to the Rec!!! Good job Matt!!

Hey Teacher, if u are one. If u think these guys are sorry excuses u should go to a Valley View, Jacksboro, or Elk Valley elementery game and watch those idiots coach. Talk about unprofessional!! And Parent, U can remove ur kid if its that bad, This isnt summer ball. Going down to Clinton and playing there Rec teams doesnt constitute winning AAU games, Ok? How can u be complaining about a team that has been in first place from the start of the season till now? Look life isnt fair sometimes, and I understand that. He doesnt have a son playing and im sure the team looked different this summer because the two best players on the team werent there. I will bet you one thing tho, when these kids move onto the high school level they will be better prepared for it fundamentally than any other middle school team in our district. Have u seen another team this year use a jump stop? U may have to get ur son to show u what that is. Since they were never taught that in any of our Elemenary schools. Geez people, watch the Games!!

I know most of the parents that have kids playing at Jacksboro Middle School. I also know the coach pretty well. He has not ulterior motives or games that he plays other than caring about those kids and trying to teach fundamentals. Those of you that dislike him or think he knows nothing obviously have a kid/friend that isn't getting to play or something, because if you talk to him for 5 minutes you know he knows something about basketball. And if Matt does get on here and read this, Matt please know that MOST parents down there are ok, but you have those few idiots who think because little johnny goes to oliver springs and plays aau w/ the blind and deaf, that they should be the best players on the team. Keep doing your job, but do try to get more motion on your offense, looked stagnent the other night.

If you want your child to improve on fundamentals then step to the plate. Stop trying to get your child in the starting position cause you know somebody. If you don't like it take the kid and work with him/her and make them better OR PAY some one to do it.

They are not being taught fundamentals in such a short time that the coach has with them. The coach try's to pick the kids that can help them compete to beat Lafollette.

I personally know of some parents that take their kids out of the county to play a more competitive game of ball, our kids cannot compete with these type of athletes unless we do the same... GET OFF COACH MATT'S BACK.
I understand that some parents even attend games in Knoxville on a weekly or biweekly occasion...

Step up or step out of the way, you are part of the cause not solution!

That's not even right. Him Only having a meeting with 3 of the players. Isn't this a team? Shouldn't a meeting but conducted as a whole team? There are five starters not three. And Darin, he may be just a kid but he has one of the worst attitudes I have ever witnessed on a ball court.(not including Matt's cry baby fits) At the LaFOllette game, Jesse had a hard enough time with the refs and then Darin started cussing at him on the court and Jesse walked off. Matt should have said something because with that attitude they will not come together and play like they should and could.

Wow! When I played I remember having to run because of a couple idiots on the team kept screwing up. I wish my coach would have taken those idiots in the office and talked to them instead of punishing the whole team. How refreshing this is. Jacksboro has been in first place all season and won the halls tournament going away, beating Whittle Springs, which is widely considered the top 2 or 3 teams in Knoxville. I can tell bendover and poop are the same people and still have someone they know on the team or a kid on the team. If you remember at the start of the season we had a few playing football and missed the first few games and Trey broke his foot and while they were out we got KILLED. I mean Killed, so they are the best on the team and will be where ever they continue to play in high school, so get used to ur kid or kids sitting the bench. Sorry its life man!!!!LOL

Oh, and Bendover, I just called Matt Housley's uncle and confirmed where he played In college and it was a four year school, not jr. college. Sorry! He said Matt was 1st team all-district AAA for two years, Mvp of the Middlesboro classic, All-Tournament in the District tournament, average 20pts, 7rbs, 6 assist at CCHS. Two year Starter in college, assistant coach at CCHS, Head coach at Jacksboro. Wow, now that I look at it he may be the most qualified coach in Campbell county! I guess thats why hes coaching, since u ased. Go ahead and post come of your outstanding credintials so we can compare. LOL

i think they should have taken each kid in and talked to them that way they would express their feelings and then address the team as a whole and fix the problem. they were a much better aau team than they are now becouse they ran the ball these boys are very quick and can run on anyone

Gametrap u may be right on callin them in one at a time I dont really know the situation. But from what I heard is there was a problem between two kids and he chewed those two out and had the other one in there because he was the Captain and wanted him to help difuse the situation, as the leader. I dont know tho, So..... As far as the run and gun approach because there quick? Again this isnt AAU or rec ball and they tried running on people early and got drubbed. Since the Torres boy has come back they are one of the best teams around. I have watched some games this year and think the coaching is good, but he cant make the shots for them,u know? I mean he puts them in the right spots, they just have to execute better. And I think they will be fine if they can practice and not get snowed out. The Fundamentals are better than any team ive seen this year, and that will help them in high school. Because thats what we want really.
