Just ran across this while looking through old topics. With Napier, Lowe, Zeigler, Hammond and Cornelius included and two schools now we have won 6 varsity football games since 2005. Maybe coaching aint the problem. As much as all of us Murray Countians like to blame the coaches, I think we outta adopt us some players from other counties like Dalton and Calhoun do.

Yah, because football players are just flocking to a school with a record like ours.

I don't believe there's much motivation in the kids playing the sport anymore. A lot of them don't realize that if you want to be a high quality player, training lasts year round. Once the kids reach varisty level, a lot of them are already so far behind in conditioning and training it's a joke for them to be on the same field as the other team.

Of course, I can't blame the coaches totally on that, a lot of the problem comes from the student, and his/her home life. I rarely see parents outside playing sports with their kids anymore. Parents are perfectly content with their kids staring at a TV/Laptop/smart phone for hours on end, instead of taking them out for some exercise.

I'll admit something, and take it however you want. I won a lot of weight lifting and sports awards when I was in High School, but did my parents push me to become better at sports? No, they didn't. They were too busy working and providing a home for me. It was my own personal resposibility to go the extra mile. After I'd get home from football practice, I had a weight bench at my house, and I'd work out more there. If it was the offseason or summer break. I'd ride on my bicycle for miles, or I'd walk/run around town.

Why is that so difficult to do these days? I mean, this was only 10 years ago. To be a great football player, you have to want to play the game, and you have to want to be great at it. I'm a very competitive person, and I hate to lose. And at football, I rarely lost because I made myself become better. When I was a freshman/sophomore, there were a lot of people stronger than I was, but by the time I was a senior, there wasn't a soul in our region that could outlift me.

And if you're thinking it, no, I never took supplements even though, things like Creatin were completely legit at the time. I did pushups, or climbed hills, or walked through mud to develop my body strength. It's that good ol fashioned military workout our grandfathers had to do on a daily basis.

The same work ethic and dedication goes for anything you want to do.....sports, dance, band, cheerleading, good grades, going to college, having a successful career and family. Even if your father didn't play ball with you he was still allowing you the opportunity and teaching you work ethics because he was going to work everyday to provide you the opportunities you had. Not all have that. Just ask the coaches. You were one of the lucky few.

The entire problem with MC football is this.
Football is a complicated game and the players must be developed from an early age. The rec program that murray has in place is a failure pure and simple. If you thimk I am wrong just look at the quality and quanity of the players it has turned out of late. A high school championship football team is made when the kids are in grammer school and the team is brought up together. The old system of each grammer school having their own teams and playing one another was much better. In rec ball some unqualified coaches are teaching young players bad habits that will follow them the rest of their life. Also furture tallent is not cultivated and becomes lost because the rec and middle school coaches are not in contact as they should be. The truth hurts/long live the truth.

If you knew me you would like me. I admire you and agree with everything you have to say. Kids now days all they want to do is talk to there friends, hang out, etc. But in reality people tell them they are good and so they don not practice. That cheer leader is dum, cheer leading is not even a sport. I place NASCAR above cheer screaming any time.
well well

I think all the Murray County Rec Teams won games against the surrounding counties last year when we put our kids against their kids how can you say the current rec system is a failure?
