Doesn't Nole have any control? It all starts with leadership at the top!

The board and Nole are the main problem and it snowballs down thru the AD and coaches. They are all in it together. It is a scam for the last few years.

Speaking of corruption and politics at NH, explain how a kid sits the bench all of his JV basketball season and then the next year as a 10th grader he makes the varsity team? If this isn't political then I don't know what is. The board and AD and coaching staff play blind to this stuff but this is what hurts scholastic sports. Kids say screw sports and the numbers dwindle. The BS is to much. This is NH 101.

The football coach Hobin did it. The guy is great. Best thing that has happened to NH sports. NH football is back and wins Section III title in 2014!

From the students' point of view, the mascot actually was helpful, and resulted in a higher student attendance to the games. Players loved him too.

They won 4 games against the worst teams in the league. The teams they beat won a total of 3 games and two were winless. Crushed by the big boys.
The 4 teams they beat were a combined 7-27 this year.
5 of the 7 wins were against each other.
In the games where they did not play each other, they were a combined 2-22.
These other 2 wins were against a mediocre Class B team and Nottingham (2-7).
Nice to win games, but let's not confuse something that is somewhere south of mediocre with a surge in performance.

Yeah, the mascot will put a stop to all the political BS. He will use his plastic sword to compel the AD to change his ways.

They totally played the wrong QB all year. The kid that started was only there because of politics. Same as for him playing basketball. All political favors for this kid. Dad and AD in bed together. Little pocket change down south and my kid plays. NH thing. There was a senior and a sophomore QB much better but the wealthy sons kid played.

Yup same with hoops with the above family he sits on JV then makes varsity hoops. The fact of the matter is with hoops if you pay you make the team. The coach is treated to dinners and additional incentives by some parents, another ones parent gets to sit in the gym on closed door tryouts sessions and more of this rolls over to baseball due to the same coach coaching two varsity sports.
There is so much graft and rules not applying to some that it is hard to fathom.
The lack of integrity at NH is very sad. The district reeks of all the negative characteristics you can think of when it comes to personal traits.
In whitesboro, our AD has integrity and does whats right- he does'nt have to think about it, when your honest doing whats right comes in an instant.

To all the cry baby parents out there. Don't let it be a coaches decision .Do extra work with your kid. Its not always talent ITS POOR ATTITUDE sometimes that keeps kids grounded. There's no question coaches sometimes play favorites but some kids overcome this crap and become better people and players. Its called putting the team first. That's what winners do!!!!!!

My neighbor and his wife always complained his kid was getting screwed in hoops and younger kids played ahead of his kid because of politics. So I went to a couple of games and observed . Some parents are blind when it comes to their kid. Be thankful your kid is part of a team.!!!!
