DJ Anderson is coming back, but I'd heard they might move him anyway. Who's coming from Wynne?

Reid moved here from Wynne a couple months ago. Mainly for baseball but for football too. He's a senior this year and was most definitely being upstaged by an underclassmen by the name of Ross Trail at Wynne High School. He(Ross Trail) doesn't even graduate til 2015 and University of Arkansas already has their eye on him. So, what the Wingos see is this. Stafford the star running back is gone. Without Stafford, Anderson isn't the star quarterback he was last year, BUT Anderson needs the yards which is where Wingo comes in. But understand that JHS has a really good quarterback by the name of Carson Coats who's been loyal to Jonesboro his entire school career. I believe CC is a junior next year which would still make him JHS's lead QB in 2014 if they go with what I stated above. We've all watched CC be a trooper, so if he gets shafted again this year, I guarantee you he'll step up next year, not switch schools like Wingo!!. but I guess some people think the grass is always greener. right?

Coleman is usually pretty decent at giving both players an equal shot at playing, he's been in this situation before and went with the younger QB. I'm not sure how the backup last year was being a trooper, he isn't the athlete Anderson is, not comparable. I do understand if they want to move Anderson to WR or RB to get more players on the field.

You're incorrect. He did not go with the younger quarterback. He does seem to choose yards over touchdowns though, and no, that is not always one and the same. Assuming you actually watched the games last year. Anderson is fast and touqh, I agree with that. But to say he's a next level quarterback is a misstatement. He's a fast, very fast running back that happens to throw a decent ball. He's not a fast quarterback, as nice as that would be. He's just lucky he had good running backs, and receivers last year. That's a fact!!

There was no comparison between Coats and Anderson, you must be his dad. I was talking about an earlier competition between two different QB's. Anderson started several games as a soph and earned his starts. No one is saying he's an outstanding passer, but his legs saved many a plays for the Canes. It's a little different coming in at mop up time against a tired defense and scoring, than going against WM, NLR,, or Conway. The coaches want to win, they just don't care if it's your son or mine leading the team. Isn't there some good RB's moving up from the Jr highs?

Being a Cane myself would certainly not make me any relation to him or his family if you know them well at all. I know his parents and they are good people. Our kids have played a variety of sports in the past decade and Carson has always excelled at whatever he sets out to do, whether it be sports, community, or academics. Don't start speculating that you know something that you do not...guest:) Like I said, time will tell. And you're right, there is no comparison between Coats and Anderson. One's a running back and one is a quarterback!!! Thanks for clarifying that for all of us. In regards to what's coming up from Jr High. I think we won't see the strength in that til 2014 but who knows.

I've had two kids go through the program, I trust the coaches to make the best decisions. They obviously felt that DJ gave them the best chance to win, thus, they played him at QB. I think you will find at lot of schools put their best athletes in positions to handle the ball, thus, Pope, Stafford, and Anderson. As far as RB's, Martin would have been the best RB as a soph, but that was during the Brooks to RB phase.

So, honestly, where is the future of JHS and local football? Will VV continue to improve or have they planed out? Who are the up and comers that will be the next Staffords and so on? I'm talking Jr high kids that are showing signs. What does the border bowl hold in store for us in the coming years.

I wouldn't have any idea about VV, although they will be moving up to 5A in 2014. As far as JHS, the Razorback coaches came by little bit ago to talk to Chuks Ota((DT) and Anderson(Ath) for 2014, and Denzel Mitchell for 2016, I'm not sure which JR high he played for.
