I have sat back for a while now and watched the Girls COACH who is trying to be a good guy but he can not coach in my opinion he says things to the girls that should not be said to anyone I think it is time for a change does anyone else agree with me I know i can't be the only one who has seen or heard this kind of stuff

The girls basketball coach at east is probably an ok person but, he can not coach nor can he relate to other human beings without being negative and down grading. With that said let me give you his stats compiled from coacht.com over the last 6 years. Overall Record = 53 wins & 82 loses / Conference Record = 16 wins & 44 loses (8 wins against Cherokee) District Tournament Record 0 wins & 6 loses. The bottom line is everyone has an opinion but, stats don't lie. Talent or no talent you can still play defense & rebound and those two things alone will win alot of ball games.

Samantha Hale is in 11th grade!, East coach has shirts printed for the girls that say "UN BLANKEN BELEVIABLE" on the back of them, now that is just plain stupid!

Samantha is an outstanding player as well as megan ,and leah and so on and so on all the girls are good ball players with alot of history behind them they just need the apprioate coaching personally i dont think the players have much respect for him and he apparently has no confidence in them or respect for them or the shirts would not say UN BLANKEN BELEVIABLE maybe they should say i believe in them. this team has a long way to go and they will get there with someone who believes in them!!!!!!!

Not sure what their record is but i have heard they have not been doing very well!!! Dont know much about the coach but if he put that on the team shirts then people could take that a couple different ways and most people would think the same as Cherry I know i do

I think the comment on the t-shirts is a reference to Hannah Blanken. Another consideration is that Coach Livesay and Principal Johnson are old friends from Hancock County.

They may be old friends from Hancock County but their friendship should not have an impact on the team weather or not he is the right person for the job should not be based on their friendship don't you agree

Hey how do you think he got the job in the first place. He was brought to the school to teacher with the promise when his buddy was put into power he had the job and it happened like they planned. Typical Hamblen County politics.

Politics are the same in Hancock Co. We are rid of Johnson, and now the poor kids at East have him and Livesay to boot. I am not saying this personally against the Blanken girl, because I have no idea who she is, but why in reference to her? They are a team, they are not made up of one player. One player does not a team make. I have been to several of their games, and there is a lot of talent on that team, and Livesay doesn't do a thing to bring it out. He is a no-talent coach. Plan on being at the East/Hancock Co. game also. It will be a good game like the East/West was. I am a diverse fan, I like all the schools because they each have their own unique qualities. Good luck to both schools on game night.

Well politics should not play a part in those girls future!!!! which i know that it will given the situation maybe he should think about the girls and just step down so the girls can MAYBE get the proper coaching and possible college opportunities they deserve that!!!!! AT LEAST

Terry Livesay and Ricky Bruce are a joke! They both need to do East a favor and step down immediately. There is a really good coach in the Hamblen County system who would love to have the job but those two idiots will not leave. They have some talented players but have no idea how to use them.
