I agree they are young ....started four freshman Sat. but in a couple of years they should be pretty good...I will support them win or lose.

Who 's # 10 he shoots like 30 to 35 shots a game. How's Harvey let that happen. He should avg. 40 pts a game the way that kid takes shots. Harvey let them other kids shot 2. Harvey getting soft with his old age. He wouldn't have let that happen when I played for him. Go goat pound

I attended the game last night and I actually thought #10 shouldve taken more shots. I was really impressed with his ability to lead the team, especially since he's so young, he plays like a senior. I saw him pass the ball off when he could've shot, and a lot of times they wouldn't catch it. Every player has a job seems like his is to score, the biggest problem I noticed last night is the guys who's job is to rebound wasn't getting the job done. Chapmanville out rebounded them 10 to 1. If I were coach, that's where I'd be makin changes.

<quoted text>. He's a good ball handler and plays above his grade I agree.. Playing at a single a school. If his role is to score he is putting up anuff shots to avg 50 pts take good shots. Move without the ball and get open. 30 to 35 shots a game Is crazy. If he is a scorer he needs to learn how to score besides just throwing stuff up. You take # 10's 35 shots added 20 more from the team and the other teams 45 shots. That's a lot to rebound. If # 10 didn't shoot so much he could get some rebounds himself Rebound'rebound' rebound pass to #10 and watch him shoot. Harvey wouldn't have let that happen 20 yrs ago
It really discuses me when so called adults get in here and talk about children. If you played for Harvey 20 yrs ago I'm sure you know #10 and his parents. I attend many games and I can say this kid plays with a lot of heart and gives it 100% all of the time. Plays great defense and runs the offense well. These children are young and all are still learning the game. My God give the kid a break!!!!! I'm positive him or his parents are concerned with some loser that says he played for Harvey 20 yrs agos opinion, but you can pay a fee and find out who you are. I think I'll pass the word on to his parents. Although, I'm sure they won't be shocked when they find out who you are. To #10 keep playing hard and play yur game. I see improvement in every game you guys play. Future looks bright!!!!!!!!

truth is the current coaching staff at MHS has made losing acceptable its a shame that so many young athletes futures are being ruined by the culture of losing that has now become a way of life at this school. when this happens at any other level in sports coaches leave players stay. a lot of players at MHS, however choose not to play for these losers.

thats why its called coaching the game has evolved the coaching has not. Its takes motivation and keeping up with ever changing complex offenses and defenses, and knowledge of the same.

You obviously don't follow Man athletics too closely. If you did you would know the following about the "worst group of athletes" as you refer to them. They are in the Black Diamond Conferece which includes 8 teams. 7th grade champions in basketball - runner up in football and baseball. 8th grade champions in basketball and football - runner up in baseball. So as you should see, they had very impressive records by a group of very impressive athletes. This group of boys like to win and play with a lot of heart, and I know this group of freshmen will just get better and better. Don't understand why people choose to make ugly comments about kids, some 14 and 15 years old. No really I do know why such comments are made.

#10, or John Thomas Keffer, however you want to refer to him, gets his share of rebounds from his guard position, as well as his share of assists and steals. These freshmen players play very well together as evidenced by 2 Black Diamond championships - 7th and 8th grade. And since we're making such mean comments - were you really a Hillbilly Player or just occupy a place on the floor? And, being the statistician that you are, what were yours? Or if you want to give your name, I'll check it out myself. Oh, by the way, just in case you have'nt figured it out, I am the proud grandmother of John Thomas Keffer and Mitchell Morris, Hillbilly players.

And just how good were you? Apparently not too good or you would PROUDLY display your name. Then everyone could judge you as you so freely judge and be so critical of other athletes. And your comment about middle school makes no sense. That was the level at which they played at the time. They could have lost the games now could'nt they.

Since I can't call you by name I'll just call you alumni. Alumni, again your comment makes no sense. I am not clueless about any sports, and have probably been to many more sporting events than you could imagine. You see, I happen to like sports and come from a family that shares my love of sports. Shoot I have more than likely even watched you play. My brothers played, my children played, and now my grandchildren. Thar's decades of sports on every level. So clueless I am not!!! I do agree that you must play with heart and a desire to win and that cannot be taught. As far as conditioning, I know a few that did work hard to get ready for football. Since we do have such young teams in football and basketball, I can certainly see them getting better. Let me just pass one other fact on to you. The only State Championship trophies at Man High School belongs to the girls, who I also had the privilege of supporting. And, oh yeah, I am still going to Jr. High games as well as high school games to watch my grandchildren. Bottom line, Alumni, I think it's really juvenile to sit behind your computer and actually single out particular athletes. But, on a brighter note, I hear many more complimentary comments than the opposite.
