coaches must make the players think they are going to win every game, if you you look at every game we played this year, our team has out played everyone the second half. they are not sure they can compete with the other teams until they forget about the score and just try to hit everyone as hard as they can. only one team has sub-ed down, or coach black gives a great half time talk. coach black just switch your per-game and half time speeches. everyone plays better when they know they are gunna win. COACHES TELL THEM THEY ARE GOING TO WIN EVERY GAME, (ONE LITTLE WHITE LIE IF THEY DONT) WINNING STARTS BY BELIEVING. PS GOOD LUCK TO THE BURG ALSO

Bottom line and you can come up with a million excuses but answer this. How many times has WC won a district title? How many region? How many state? In the last 15 years how many years have they made the playoffs??? Proly every year or almost every year. Right??? yes. How many years did they get beat out the first round??? A lot. Second round??? Alot. Going 8-3 or 9-4 dont mean anything when you let it run down your leg come playoff time. Its not the kids fault. They are use to playing weak teams and its a shock when they actually face a good team. Stay down there and talk about how good they are and how they drilled Lynn Camp and even beat Somerset. Heck maybe they can get Jellico on the scheldue next year. lol
I'm not sure what your issue is with the county but they are a good football team. There are always going to be people out there (you) who don't like them for whatever reason. You can complain about the schedule all you want but it's pretty simple, the school plays the teams the play under contract. Teams like Whitley and Lynn camp have played for years under a contract that is renewed at the end of every term. Whitley should play tougher teams to get better. There's no doubt about that and I agree with you 110%. But on the same side, some of the bigger schools you wish they would play are under contracts with certain teams that would cause a conflicting schedule if they changed it to play another. Some teams just don't have any desire and coming from a big city I can understand why st.x and Lexington cathlic have no desire to play what they assume is just a Podunk school like Whitley county out in the boonies. Culture shocks can change the demeanor of players and can cause them to lose focus. Also, I never said money was an issue. Money is rarely an issue for the county because of all the schools under their belt. I do believe you are right that they do need to play a tougher schedule but you also have to understand that it's hard to schedule schools in ky do to lifelong contracts with locals. I don't know why it's like this I just know it occurs

I have no issue with wc. I know just as much about wc football as anyone. I dont look at them as po dunk but I think the program is is a huge rut and has been for years. When Benji took over the program years ago they were terrible and he brought the program around along way. He was the toughest coach in the counrty and only a handful of kids could stand to play under him. He ran off alot of talent and wc lacked dept for years. He did get the program turned around and got them winning. But the program has never took the next step to be a real championship team. I would like to see them be great and a real force in the entire state. You wanna talk about po dunk look at Bell County. Its alot more remote in Bell County than Wc but they have two state championships and too many district and region titles to count. They are known as a tough team throughout the state. Boyle County another prime example. Their is no reason wc should not be taking the next step forward in being a great team. I think Williamsburg is heading in that direction.

You make a great point. That's why I agreed with you. I just think Whitley deserves a little credit for the success that they have accomplished. It's not easy for those kids to go out there and play game in and game out with a school that basically says, "if you don't have a winning season we are firing your coach and giving you a budget cut". I think that's the biggest reason they don't play bigger schools is because they are afraid to have a losing record. It's a shame that that kind of pressure is put on these kids because the coach feels that kind of pressure from the school. It needs a change. And I am extremely glad to see Williamsburg putting some tougher opponents on their schedule but I feel as if they should go bigger to and play some bigger schools such as Corbin, Pulaski County, and even Clay county. Those teams could really help them against the top dog hazard and ultimately, I think it could send them to a state championship. What do you think?

If they were going to fire for a losing season, they should have fired Jim Black years ago. He had two seasons in a row of only winning two games! We need a new coach!

Williamsburg Non District (part they control) opponents record 26-48 and they did not play a ranked team or a district champion.

Whitley Non District (part they control) opponents record 45-32 Ranked teams played: 4 district Champions: 3 District Runner-up 1

It is clear (check the KHSAA) that Whitley played to the more difficult schedule. This is not opinioin or uneducated ramblings, these are the facts.

Here is opinion: In single A football you can compete if you have a couple of nice athletes. If you have four or 5 you can be really good and if you have 7 you can have a deep run in the playoffs. In 5A football you have to have 10-15 athletes just to stay on the field with most teams. Williamsburg is so concerned with Whitley that all they can do is put them down in a effort to make themselves look better, instead of being happy about being a excellent 1A team. Whitley just plays football and produces good players who move on to the next level.(Cody Jones, UK, Boston Bryant, Wofford committment) Although it is nice to see WHS and WCHS players at the University of the Cumberlands and Union.

Don't be a hater, just cheer for your team.

Williamsburg- Ryan Moses mount union-11 national championship teams before getting closer to home transferring to union college.
Joe Campbell- EKU kicker, played for the Minnesota Vikings.
Matt Jones, offers from UK, Western Kentucky, purdue, before deciding to stay home due to education problems.
Daniel Pettit- offers from Marshall, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Purdue, Tulane, Troy, and others before choosing Union College.
Aaron Brock, preferred walk-on (like Cody jones) before deciding to just go to school.
Dusty Brown, preferred walk-on for western Kentucky before deciding to go to union.
Tyler ayers- decommitted to from Louisville to stay closer to home.
As you can see by a short list, several players from Williamsburg have been offered or preferred to play at top name schools. It's not just the big schools who can put players out there.

I know for a fact one of them didn't get those offers. The others couldn't take the heat of real teams. Union and Cumberland are the Williamsburg of College football. That is all they know.

Keep thinking wc football is great. Im sure they will come up with another winning season next year. Maybe someday the some new adminstration will come in and set the bar a little higher than beating small teams with very little or no talent. Until then you all keep up the high fives and telling each other how good wc football is. The real football season is just now starting. And in not a hater. Im just a realist and I unlike alot of other people in wc I realize wc football is not very good. Their is a problem w a 5A school playing a 1A or 2A schools. Their is a problem with wc football that its never went the next step in being a good team and actually playing for a state title.

Hahaha yeah I bet you "Know" they didn't get those offers. You must've been there when the letters were passed out. You also must've been there when a university of Louisville coach was there with a signed paper. Yeah, you know all about it and set right there when it all happened.

Actually, I wasn't offered anything. I was recruited but only for "preferred" walk-on as you call it. I could've went to these schools but only as a walk on and idk what your talking about that louisville came and papers were signed. That's ridiculous. And whoever said anything about union and Cumberland, I've played at both and those are great football schools. A lot of those players played D-I football and left because of incident or grades. Until you've actually played college ball, shut your mouth. You have no idea the amount of pressure that is on you when you ate playing college ball. And btw, union college sent two players to the nfl two years ago (armond smith/quinton borders) so you might want to keep that in mind. As far as Boston Bryant goes, he's a tremendous athlete and deserves to go to wofford. In the same sense, he's not the only athlete in the tri-county area. It just so happens he's a great student too. In this day in age for football, it's the grades that get you into the big schools so don't count out every player out there because they aren't committed to a big school. It's not just the athleticism anymore. And please, if your gonna say something about me, make sure it's a least legit. I don't go on these websites telling lies on you. Thanks

I don't see a hidden agenda. I see what he means by wanting the wc football to take the next step. Its obvious the winning season and getting drilled in the playoffs is still enuff for the school administration and some of the fans. I can only say their is some of the other fans that wanna see the team be better and actually win something besides beating small schools or schools w no talent. This season is comming to a close. Get ready for the banquet and high fives. Congrats wc sure did drill Lynn camp again this year. Lmao.

Thank you. That is exactly what this Colonel fan wants. Our team deserves a chance. Our "Joker" has had his chance and failed. He has proven he can't take our kids to the next level. In fact, most seasons he couldn't get a winning season. Our players have more talent and heart than those schools that win it all. I know with the proper coach, we would be unreal. Why oh why didn't Murdoch stay!

You talk about Whitley County playing a weak schedule in one breath and in the next breath you talk about Boyle and Bell being two of the toughest teams in the state. Guess what genius, those are two teams that Whitley County played this year in their out of conference schedule. Not to mention Russell County. Somerset is a terrific football program by the way. As for Lynn Camp, they want that game more than Whitley County does. Every team, at every level, has one or two teams on their schedule that they are supposed to beat. It's just the way it is.
