Just curious? Have been told school board approved a list of 10 paid assistant football coaches for upcoming season at Lee High. Know that I have been told that Thomas Walker is only allowed 3 paid assistant football coaches. Last time I checked Lee and Thomas Walker was in same county. I counted 38 players for Lee and 29 for Thomas Walker in warm ups at last years game. So why is Lee allowed 10 paid assistant football coaches and Thomas Walker is only allowed 3?

Actually, unless football is drastically different than every other sport, you don't get ANY points for playing teams out of state. Furthermore, you don't get any points for a loss regardless.
Now I know football works on a slightly different system than the other sports, so I could be wrong here. But I'm pretty sure that what you are referring to is the old power points system that they used to use. Now you only get points for finishing 1st or 2nd in your district and tournament. But like I said, I'm not positive that that's how football works so if I'm wrong then I apologize.

Doesn't matter this bunch will rename that school to West Pennington High! Heard the other day that Carter and the town council have filed to incorporate all the way to Walmart to be includes in to the town of Pennington Gap. With the combination of good buddies Williams and Harber the school board will make the school in to West Pennington High!

Ha, they can have all the coaches they want, just more people to take blame for all the loses! 10 coaches for 35-40 players, that's one coach for 4 kids. Not even the pros are that concentrated! Thanks to the new school board for taking care of our money!!

No, it was built on a dmn cave so that it would be central in the section of the county that the students came from. Before the school boards were to be elected by a popularity contest. You get sh!t like this when you vote people like Williams and Jessee and Harber onto a board. It becomes a "how many of my friends can I get a job for" contest. Williams can't coach his head out of a paper bag, Harber thinks he is the super athlete, Jessee thinks she knows everything about everything and has the answer to it all. When essence all that any of the three can do is screw this county and our children and teachers.

It's not just football, it's across the board. Both bball programs are jokes now. Girls had a couple decent years and boys one, but those days are over now. Volleyball is mediocre at best, they will never pose a threat to GC. Baseball and softball pose no threats to anyone. Soccer teams are improving but still behind the Bristol schools and GC who have been paying their whole lives. Tennis had one good year. Cross country track wrestling, may have a couple individuals do well but not a team threat.
And let's not forget, Lee High is the BIGGEST school in the entire Region D. When's the last time they had a region title, aside from the tennis one a few years ago? Unacceptable. The only wins they can get are over the little D1 schools half their size. Their was a good post on the bball topic that showed their records vs D2 schools. Guess the moral of the story is, schedule all Cumberland and Black Diamond schools, and Burton haha

"Daugherty -!!! RETIREMENT PARTY !!!" Oh so very, very true! And the sooner the better!

"Martin - Fire the bus back up........" Forget the bus, it's spring time go back to cutting grass, and never step foot on LHS property again along with any of last years staff!!"

Looks to me like the school board would pay more attention to the soccer program. Not everyone loves football, plus soccer takes a lot more skill. Ever notice the soccer scores?Come on Lee county, give the soccer program more support.
