I'm wondering if the up coming new applicants will be screened any better than the previous ones.I can't believe they're still keeping the varsity basketball ball coach.Still again,I can't believe the A.D. is still being kept on himself.

And if they could just get rid of the head band director, they might be able to get some respect back into that program as well.

Sounds like you have bitter grapes to spread about AHS. You should join the SHIFTY FIFTY posse. They have added a bunch of new recruits from the West Texas area to their "club". They are trying their hardest to take over the school and this small town. These newer individuals have latched onto the opinions and practices of the small minded group who believe they are upper class working for the good of all.

Ya right!!

People in glass houses should not throw stones.

Pretty soon AHS will be sporting a new mascot/logo.....The Texas Longhorns. Oh brother.

This group is trying to get rid of EVERYONE that can possibly stand in their way. But that's not wrong???? Who are they to judge anyone? Are they perfect? NO!!! Check their closets and you will find many skeletons.

I hope the A.D. and the Head Boys Basketball coach stay strong and fight this sorry $$$ group of people and their narrow minded ways.

And "jlouie"?? What would anyone find if you were screened?

WOW so set up

You guys have no clue Harris, Stockton, and Doddson are running things (Tanner is left out not enough money or positions on the court). Stockton will be the girls coach for one year thats when his daughter and the two others graduate. Gary was going to get fired by Harris if he didnt resign I know I wss at the meetings. Johnson has been in the dark for years and still is there is no respect for this guy and he is going also.
Just wait and see.

There is more intrigue goin on at APS than a noon-time soap opera and more back-stabbing than at a political convention. There are a couple of people riding their 4% election turn-out "mandate" who are trying to personally run the district with puppet strings. It's not a pretty picture and, as Wow said, the fun is just beginning to heat up.

You are so right and its the kids that will pay in the long run. To bad Harris, Stockton, and Doddson dont understand there are more than just their children involved.

Heh, so I wonder what their chances are of NOT hiring a sex offender this time around?

Maybe they will hire Lorrie Black to be the girls cheerleading coach, and Chelsie can be the assistant coach. Maybe that way AHS can get national exposure.

That school(being the kids)is in a lot of trouble and it didnt take as long as useall for the buddy buddy system to get in place with Harris which is really sad.
Lets leave Lorrie out of this one.

You folks have only to look to a previous school board led by Harry Bloom for an explanation and reason for the demise of Tiger Athletics. When the board had a chance to purge the system of an inept and racist AD("Slick" Johnson) Harry was unable to follow up on his instincts. What you now have is a group of hand-me-down coaches and retreads who will never be able to compete with Las Cruces or other 5A programs. You should only pray that there were some "West Texas" coaches who could ride in and reverse the pathetic situation that is now Tiger athletics.

Harry Bloom along with the cowboy builders group where there so their kids could play sports while real athletes were left out or behind I think the people of Alamo know that story. Here in Alamo its not for all the kids its always for just mine. It goes back to the seventies.

You guys are so damn clueless! Its all the rich girls in the damn school getting their way like it has never happend before when it comes to basketball program anyway!
They wont do anything this year no matter the change they dont have the strength they did the past year to get 23 wins again. And there's no way they can out coach Abney up in LC, this whole thing is a damn joke! And as far as mayfield goes they wont beat them to get to the dsitrict championship so what was the point in going thru with this disgusting planned out event?! Rio Rancho or Cibola is gonna win state so umm no point in making the changes but i dont blame coach champman for leaving i wouldnt wanna be around a bunch of girls that treat me like shit either..."oh no we have to run suicides" like are you serious lets throw a fit cuz we know we can get our way and do everything in our power to bring down coach...for goodness sake its high school basketball!
dont even get me started on the equal playing time situation! ITS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL this year if girls didnt complain about how much they were on the court they wouldve won district and state...but no they didnt play to win, they played to make the girls happy! and if they didnt good ol daddy with money made sure they did!
All i know is that your girls will never make it in college...daddy cant save you they dont care waht you think they will just get the next recruit off the list!!!!

Sorry, I am not trying to be rude, but what does the commitee of fifty have to do with the head coach positions being available? I don't see what one has to do with the other.

I think what was meant when Jlouie suggested screening the coaches is avoiding another round of Mcintires, Javier Cruz's, and I believe Madden had a criminal rap sheet of his own if i remember correctly which anyone can search online, not to mention deconstructing a once proud program, politics aside, he is garbage

Oh yes and WOW in ALamo...with your "enemy" so specifically characterised, doesn't it kinda seem like you have the bitter grapes???

wow so set up and haha bs are so right!! you guys have no idea what goes on in that school. alot of you guys think everything is all fine and dandy!! those girls (stockton dodson and harris as new as she is) never liked chapman because they didnt play!! well the only person that really showed any type of potential was dodson! Harris cant remember a play to save her life she has a beautiful shot but low basketball IQ. stockton dont like chapman 1. because she favors her dad more. 2. because her dad baby's her more. and 3. because her dad gives her a pat on the back even if she does something wrong. technically thats why all of those girls want stockton as their coach. theyve been saying it from the beginning. because supposedly stockton has a better way with the girls than chapman does! Because they will get their way and stockton will baby them so he won't their feelings. Chapman didnt play that. he will yell at anyone on the team especially the starting 5 if they all messed up guess what you are coming out and sittin the bench. he dont care he will find someone to get the job done. that's what a coach does and if any girl doesn't like that then they need to give up their hopes of going to play any college sport. Chapman is no where near tough on those girls as he could have been. How ever if i were him i surely wouldnt want to coach them next year. they dont like him anyway and anyone knows if you dont like someone you aint gonna wanna listen to a thing they have to say no matter what! so whatever happens happens. They have to reap what they sow! and it seem like whenever a rich girl cries they their way. starting from the new school schedule of 7 classes rather than 4 because someone said it was harder!! DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE TO ANYONE!! 7 rather than 4!!! thats 3 extra classes!!! Volleyball all the girls hated their coach so one girl who is gonna be a senior next year(uh ummm dodson) stepped up to the parentals and discussed her problem. dad made sure that their coach would no longer be their coach!! Mrs. Ross should be thanked for what she has done for those girls. She didnt want that job she just helped program stay there. No one wanted that job because those girls are not good and have too much attitude! and they have not gotten as far as they did this year in YEARS!! but yet they dont like her and they almost went to state 1 game shy!! normally they would get knocked out 1st round in district tournament. and thats they thanks she gets " we dont like you so we want you gone your not a good coach!" So to all the lady tigers next year for both basketball and volleyball, if they so happen to do horrible next year, which they probably will, im laughin !
Signed,
GLAD IM NOT THERE NO MORE!!!
