Looks like a bunch of unemployed couch coaches like to come here and complain....
If any of these negative posters on here have any kids, are they on any of the sports teams at NM? If not, then why?
Pretty sad that you can put down the kids that are trying....while not even encouraging your own kids to play sports.
My guesss that the crybabys on here never even played any sports themselves...but think they can judge the kids that are....ignorance at it's best.
A huge problem for NM sports is APATHY....from the parents to the kids (usually passed down to the kids)
If all of the boys that have athletic ability, actually went out for sports, then NM would be able to field a competative team.
NM is one of the larger student bodies in this area, and it is rather sad at the limited number of players that they can get to come out for the teams.
I don't fault any of the coaches..at least they are trying, even with a limited number of players.
When I played at MHS under Michaels, we would only have maybe 30-40 players that would come out for football...and that included freshmen...and we still got the job done.....
Marion Co. always had teams in the search for a playoff spot... Mannington, Fairview, Rivesville, Monongah, and Barrackville usually had some quality players....
now that these schools have been consolidated, it seems like NM should be able to field a good team every year.
Reading the dumbassed comments by some on here, it's easy to see why some kids don't want to play.
IMO everyone that has a kid in NM, should be behind the team and coaches 100%
If you show that you believe in them, then they will believe in themselves......and give them confidence every time that they step onto the field.
As in the words of wisdom from my late grandmother....
