I grew up in Graham County, I know this teachers
family, There is no better people in the world, His grand Father And Grandmother were the very best. I feel sure with out a shadow of doubt,his parents did their very best raising him better,
just as his grandparents did. Some people choose
the easy way out, and must learn the hard way, I hope Lionel does learn a hard lesson from some wrong decisions he has made. My prayers and thoughts are with his paents." A parent
can only give good advice, but in the final analysis, it's up to the child to make the best dicision to be sucessful." Good Luck to Them......

Perhaps everyone needs a little lesson about our criminal justice system. A person who has been charged is innocent until proven guilty. I happen to know this family as well and happen to believe that some things are not as they appear on the facade that is made by media and small town politics. Let's stay on track and remember that he has yet to be convicted of anything.

Well I hate to break it to you but anyone who knows Coach Wilson should know the kind of stuff that he was into. He was always cracked out on something at school, and your an idiot if you think different. I also knew him personally and was one of his students and you could tell by looking at the guy that he was on drugs. Im not saying that I didn't like the guy as a teacher, I mean he was cool and let us all by with a lot but that doesn't change the fact that you could tell that he was up to something, you could see it in his eyes. And how else do you explain the sudden weight loss that he had???? He was like 250 one month and 125 the next. Your crazy if you don't think that Coach Wilson would do something like that.

Jon, I am trying to figure out who you are. Does your last name start with a P? I am a graduate from Robbinsville High School from the class of 1983 and this stuff was going on then. Maybe not as bad with the hard core drugs, but there was plenty of partying going on with the teachers and students, and a lot of inappropriate conduct.You are right when you say that this is nothing new. This kind of thing has been going on for years. I personally feel that even if any of the parents ever suspected anything, they would look the other way because Heaven forbid anything interfere in their child dressing out for a ballgame. It just makes me sick that so many people around here act so high and mighty.

I am now a high school senior in Alabama, but i attended both my freshman and sophomore year at Robbinsville High School, and both years i have had physical education with Coach Wilson And Coach Williams. i played varsity softball with both of them, and i also managed the football team both years for them.. And as for myself, i believe both men are great guys.. They were both great coaches and i had a lot of respect for them.. But I know how robbinsville is... i know that the town is WAY too small, and there is nothing to do there, thats why there are so many drug addicts in Graham County.. And during my sophomore year, i could tell Coach Wilson was beggining to change, physically and mentally.. After he gave up is position as head football coach, you could tell that he was in a very low point in his life... I do believe that he did do drugs, but i think that he is still a good guys that has made some mistakes in his life
