Matewan has many players that could have played anywhere for any class of high school but when you guys start throwing Todd adkins, Josh holt or ronnie hatfield in with Richard Allara or Melvin come on guys lets get real. Only reason Todd was QB was he was the only one who could have been at the time and Josh for the class he was with he didnot produce like he should have especially since Dave jones left he should have become the big dog on that team and to me he was just average. Hatfield broke his neck because he didnt tackle the way he was suppose to so to call him great come on! Like I said good players Ill give you that one but great not even close!!!

Guys wake up Matewan hasn't won a title in yrs. maybe district but no competition there!!! I use to think Matewan was pretty good but other w.va schools roll over them now, I think yogi knows that 9 wins makes people there happy now. Look all the Good W.va players go to BELFRY They have class of the art stadium, and they play the toughest schedule ohio teams, w.va teams and of course they play all over ky. Belfry few miles up road bring Matewan up there watch Belfry kick there butts!!!! really wake up matewan use to be good now they compete local like against phelps what a joke. Hey Belfry is known for the talent, and they r the big dog in Football now 3 state titles in a row. Matewan average now, yogi knows but fans wishing or dreaming for a another title never gonna happen to small of school other w.va schools to large to matewan fans get over it alice is in wonderland ok. So Go Watch the Beast of the East BELFRY!!!!
