I have nothing bad to say about the boys. Watch him keep losing with the same six or seven. If he was barely winning games with his best talent I would agree with you. He is not winning. Why not try some of the other kids out. They are working just as hard to get to play so why not give them a chance before they realize that it is not worth the work to sit on the bench. He has more talent than he is using. I know some of the boys personally and they say if he doesn't like them he wont play them. If they are working as hard as everyone else then they deserve a chance.
I agree

I agree it is the same stuff different day....parents complaining. Here is a dose of reality. They may not win a single game. I don't care what kid he is or is not playing. Overbay is playing the best kids that he has....like any coach he wants to win. I have an idea.....if your kid is so good get him an agent and go pro....LOL.

If the parents would just for one time get behind the coach and support him good things might happen. But on the other hand in about a season and a half Whitley will show him the door, and each time they do it to one coach it gets tougher to hire a decent coach....pretty soon you will be hiring parents with kids one the team to be assistants, then it will be like elementary, a new coach every two years, and it will be a parent.

I agree. He would have turned the program into something. If Jim Black is any indication of how long you can lose and still coach, Overbay has nothing to worry about. They have let Jim Black destroy Whitley football!

He is playing the best he has got. He has the talent and if they can put it together they will be fine. You got to give him a chance.

It's sad that you get jealous because one persons child is better than your own and a coach has to play the best players so I'm sorry your jealous because one kid can come back and play over others because of his skill level
I agree 100%.Go Colonels!

Lost to class A Barbourville on friday night. How sad that a 5A program cannot beat little old Barbourville. That is the result of that local leadership, or lack of it and the politics that have been such a big part of that program. Heck, I would not even call it a program. I would call that an intramural team that just gets together and plays for the fun of it. I feel sorry for the student athletes on Whitleys boys team as they try to overcome their administrations lack of support.

Apples and oranges my friend. AAU coaches just sit back and way because they're usually "Yes-Men" who are coaching because someone likes them or they won't buck the real coach. When you have to make a team out of players that are not the best of the bunch, you get a dose of reality like Overbey is.
