Talk about a good freshman coach, its Drew Smith at Hurricane. He's a real young guy in the realtor business. They move freshmen up every year before the first game. Last year even with 2nd stringers they only lost 3 games. This is the guy i think is most instumental in Hurricanes success. This years crop began the season looking like they couldnt beat the girls team and still almost finished at .500 and this was his worst season. The jv and senior squads finished with 18 and 20 wins respectively. He was the one who prepped these boys over the last 3 yrs.His grandfather was named Sunderland who coached at the small college level. I hope nobody never steals this guy away from us. He looks like a high school sr. but he chews them a new ass every time they screw up. Repetition, repetition until they get it right. The guys a phenom.

And milt. No its not hard to.com prehend your ignorance. Can u comprehend what im saying. Pulling freshman up is not the answer. Having better upper classman is the answer. The best player midland ever had played on the freshman team. Are things so much different 10 years later. That now freshman should not be on the freshman team. Maybe we should put my 6th grader on the JV. That way he will be ready.

Just like I said you can't read and comprehend. I didn't say we needed to pull freshman up. I said that CM freshman team looked better because everybody else pulled their better freshman up and CM Jv looked better because they played mostly 11th graders. Go back and read it again and you might understand that's y I said CM is giving everybody false hope

I'm done posting nobody can give a good point as to y they need to stay or even defend what they have done. I think CM has WAY more talent then what the past years have shown. But it looks like this will only get worse. Good luck to the kids that decide to play and you might want to look for a back up or just come to terms and work all day every day in the off season because you know your not going to get any help after October

If you didn't know... Teachers have families and work full time as teachers. Coaching a sport is like having another job but it can never be the top priority. Teachers get paid about 1 dollar an hour for the time they put into coaching. This is t college people. Coaches in middle and high school don't have time to sit all day and review film, run over plays, inhance each players performance, etc. it is someone who enjoys a sport and volunteers to coach it. You have to deal with crazy parents who think their kid is the best and is always being mistreated, players who think they already know everything and don't have to listen, and show offs who mess up your whole team. By the time players get to high school they should be able to do everything but they don't. They listen to aau coaches and parents up in the crowd. And u all just add to the disrespect the students show coaches on the court and in practice. Yes the coach might not know everything he should to coach high school basketball but who else would u be satisfied with? No one, you will always pick apart whoever doesn't win games. Loosing games is not always on the coach sometimes it's the players. In the nba it is not the coach u hear about having a bad game but the players

I played in little league, middle school, high school, and college. Never once did I think the coach was responsible for my development. I was responsible for working hard, going to practice and listening to what the coach told me which was mainly plays and what to expect from the other team. What would u like coaches to do to make players play good? Lol kids will always be kids. You can't make a kid ace a test as a teacher if they don't try, study, and put in te effort. Same with players in sports. U can't make them listen or do what u say as a coach. No coach can go out and play for them. I am a coach, I recommended the Milton coach and he will do fine once we gets any kind of talent in there.

That's y collage and NBA bring people in to have camps and shooting coaches to teach. If a player is only getting better away from the coach then how is the player to know he or she is doing it correctly or the way the coach they are playing for wants them to. Because not all coaches want something done the same way. I played all the way to one year in collage and my high school and my collage coach brought shooting coaches in and both constantly did drills.

Face the truth. Its all about repetition. They've been practicing since little league on and still arent winning? They just dont have the skills. Dont blame the coach. A coach is measured by the success of his players not players being measured by the success of their coach. Example : Jackson who was always given an all star team in nba such as the bulls or the lakers and won several titles, how would he have faired with a last place team? Not any better than anyone else.

The state of Weat Virginia has made it to where you cannot bring in other coaches just to teach a certain skill. Now u as a coach do work on skills constantly. It's not like they come into practice and just chat. I'm saying if they stop improving in middle school it's not the coach it's bc the player has peaked. That can happen in high school too. Notice how midland has no players going to college? Not even d2 or d3. We have a lot of High schools around us sending 2 or 3 players to d1. NOt bc coaching but talent.

Yes they can bring other people in to help but they let pride get in the way. A coach has to keep working on skills because a lot of The kids are still growing and going through puberty. And I'm sure the kids that went to college last year in the other sports at CM were as good as freshman as they were as seniors and didn't develop at all in high school.
