Coach Harris is a great person and a great coach for my kids,could not ask for a better one. What your doing is wrong and does not really warrant my words of dissagreement, BUT....... You must be one of those parents whose child is not in the starting lineup,(picking his nose and eating boogers, poor attitude, poor work ethic,or just dont belong there)..... If you and your kid dont like it, or you think he is too good for East Hickman, take him and shop him around the state of Tennessee till you find a place where he fits in. "You know who" did it, thought his kid was better than he really was, he was gonna be a star!, but when it did not work out,......he then shopped his son to every school in Tennessee till he found a sucker to believe his story..... I feel for the kid,thats a sad story of yet another CRAZY parent, but maybe since your so full of hate for a successful program and you see a superstar that is not being used by those mean aweful coaches..... you should try what he did.He is satisfied. maybe you will be too. But dont worry about the kid.......its all about you and " you know who" Just sayin.

WRONG!! The Jr. Pro majors could have won the championship without being disqualified if the coaches believed enough in the players. The rules didn't have to be pushed to the grey line to secure a win. The example set is not good for the kids, team or community and it involved Harris. Fine example of mentor? Your just a person who only looks at the win and makes excuses for everything else but this time the baby was thrown out with the bathwater. Us parents have to deal with the emotions of our kids and not the ones who created the situation.

Maybe you should vent your hate and frustration on the guy from Burns who dealt the hand. If your team was 4 and 4 nothing would of ever beensaid, but since they dominated they were looking for anything to backstab East, BUT! no rules were violated! nothing. No grey Area, NO rule was broken. You have haters such as yourself everywhere...... You should be lucky you have a great program to look forward to your kid playing in. Harris never broke any rules the only thing he is guilty of is winning,with winning and winning big comes haters, they will do anything to try to get stuff started and discredit a program.So the presense of haters( such as yourself) is expected. It has long been the expected rule that East was a homecoming choice..... Harris changed it. Your child has the oppertunity to be a part of the team everybody fears to play.Good coaching, good kids. equal success. I suggest you show up at the sports banquet and voice your concerns that you think he should be fired....lol you will get ran out of East. Maybe you need to go to Dickson where they play like that.

Well let's take a look at rule shaded gray shall we? The Tri-County rule violated was "Players and/or cheerleaders who have participated in a regular season football game other than TRI COUNTY (dressed out, played or not played) cannot participate in Tri County during that season. A team found in violation must remove the child and forfeit all games in which the child has participated". Now when AJ, Gary and yes the middle school refer to the Jr Pro team & Jr. Pro schedule as being both the JV team & schedule, that presents a problem. When the varsity team picture including the Jr. Pro team (excuse me the JV team according to the school's website and facebook postings)that presents a problem. Gary even reported to the paper the Jr Pro was the JV TEAM. When you require the Jr. Pro majors (excuse me JV team) to "DRESS OUT" & attend, & stand on the sidelines of the varsity games, that's being "dressed out" & participating in a regular season under false pretenses. We didn't even know what we really were b/c the only one who called us officially Jr. Pro was Jim. Yes rules were broken & u can live in your little land of denial if that's what u want to do. It is as it is so just suck it up and move one. Fact: they were called the school's JV team, their schedule was called the JV schedule & they participated in regular football school activities together.

YES , He should be fired. Along with AJ, wait, cant fire a volunteer. Its obvious the rules were broken, and the only ones that suffered were the kids and parents. I'd bet 'Voter' is probably Gary or one of the others, that would be right in line with their cheating, scandalous ways. Furthermore, is Gary a good person and mentor for our children ?? Maybe you havnt read the other threads posted. Not exactly the kind of example I want set on OR off the field for my child !!

The truth is there is only a handful of 'true blue' big mouth Harris supporters. We all know how it works & if I speak up face to face then my kid will be a bench sitter all season. The coach is just one factor in the team effort-but let me correct this statement to how it really works. 1 to 3 of the players are the team and the rest of the team supports the hand picked 1 to 3 that are stars. The stars are always part of the Harris click. At least this poll allows us to vote without comment. It's not 'all coach' that makes a winning season.

The EMS coach and his butt kissing (topix posting) assistant coaches are the ones trying to re-live there lives thru our kids. They never amounted to anything as athletes so they cheat and lie to try and win. Well guess what, they got caught. They are immature, have no class, no family values and care NOTHING about the kids. They worry more about how good they look, how cool they act, and how many phone numbers they get than teaching education, fundamentals and hard work. The whole JrPro and MS program needs to be cleaned out and a fresh start. And Poll, I will teach my kid.. not to be a coward and go into hiding. And that winning does mean something, but NOT when you cheat to do so.

My son played for Coach Harris for two years and in my opion he was one of the one's that got him interestted it playing football. My son looks up to him. Yes a mistake was my but in my heart I don't think coach meant do anything wrong he put his heart and soul into this game. Look at his record for the past 5 years gone to the championship game all 5yrs and won 3 of them. that should stand for something.

So u think people needs 'to get off his back (Harris)'. Should Harris be treated any different than he has cause King to be treated by his supporters? Think not! One big difference between the coaches,King has NEVER NEVER been involved in any scandal(personal or otherwise) and likely will never be. But look at Harris-the Matt Jones incident (both personal & school related incident), pumping his supporters to ride King's back & petition to get him fired, cheating allegations & (if true as written on Topix) communicating with a fellow female teacher for purposes unknown but must be a serious offense because one lost their job & it wasn't Harris. A lot of King's players perfers King over Harris as well. Eye for an eye & tooth for tooth so get use to the 'back riding'. Harris is more deserving for the treatment than King ever was. A bed has definetly been made & now it's time to lie in it so fluff your pillow.

I think it's sad that you people have nothing better to do than speculate and pretend you know what is going on when you have no clue. Maybe some of you should make sure your own hands are clean before you go trying to ruin someone's career. Get a job and get a life! Oh wait, this is your life... Sad!
