Oh Yes I forgot !! East Surry will be eating crow now also.. So you pilot boys talk while you can because your time of honoring yourself is soon coming to a END.. The only unfortunate thing is that now Mt. Airy will get all the Transfers from surrounding towns since they will be the only contender now � PS East Surry coach ,, GET OUT WHILE THE Cupboard FULL ..

Always funny when grown men talk trash about high school kids on sports teams lol.

THE OFFICIAL END OF WILKES CENTRAL and ASHE!!!! As if they were ever relevant anyway as a playoff team. Probably end up in a really weak conference, But playing against 2a\3a all the time will for sure Hush Em Up !!! LOL!!!! Joining EAST WIlkes , Starmount , or Elkin . in the near future will be the only way to win. 1a is the only HOPE ..

Boy are there some sports brains on here! It is high school football s! Teams will change drastically or not at all from year to year depending on talent, program, and coaches. This one is better than that one? Shut up and let the kids play and enjoy their time! s!

Sertoma has been gone for years at the 7-8th grad level. It is middle school football now for that age group.

The last 2 posters show great wisdom. Ashe will have to show more speed and the travel will take its toll. The difference in playing schools their size will show out quickly. Many schools on the coast have had more travel for years. Best of luck to the new MVAc. Get rid of seratoma football and play like a regular middle school football as that will help immensely.

Not so sure what all the hype about Ashe is...a very down East Wilkes team came back and beat Ashe last year..and has probably beat Ashe at least 4 of the last 6 or 7 years...by large margins in some of them...Ashe is good this year...but will not even make it out of the 2aa second rd of the playoffs...Everyone knows that.

First of all who is the fool that said Shelby is in a conference with highland tech. What in the **** are you talking about. Probably the best football program in the state with one of the other top fives in the same county IE Crest. Don't be an not to mention that is the toughest to a conference in the state I promise you you say what you want the old southwestern 3A they used to have RS Central Burns Easter weather for Chase North cast in East caston Crest South point Shelby Kings mountain. Try playing in that. Lastly Ash has been a 3A School beating up on 2A and 1Aschools for a while now every time there's a realignment here they come oh it's too far for us to travel. Well go get your *** beat with students with similar enrollments now. They won't win a **** game. I think it's a travesty that they've been playing the Wilkes county schools etc. It'll be about time to get there due.

The fact to the matter is that if Reidsville goes west for the playoffs some schools are going to get embarassed.They will slip up from time to time but people should really go to the Piedmont area and watch some football to get a grasp of what the game can be about .

As I said. North Surry has what, been shut out by both Walkertown and North Forsyth through 2 weeks. No wonder why y'all threw a fit about playing with the Forsyth schools. Can't even score a point on the two weakest teams in their county, lol. Y'all are going to struggle with North and West Wilkes. Looks like it will be a Forbush, Central, and East Surry ran conference. Lol throwing a fit over North Surry. That's hilarious.


Posted 3:17 am, 03/03/2021

No proof? It's been common knowledge for years around here dude. Forbush tried repeatedly to get in in 2 different alignments and they were blocked every time by certain factors. NS also tried in 2015 but just did so once. Certain schools in particular didn't want either them in for whatever reason. Why should they have been scared of them? Sounds like they wanted to play those down and out 1A schools instead. 'Bush HATED that Forsyth conference and didn't want it despite it being quicker travel. They were willing to suffer on travel to play the MVAC.

The Surry/Stokes schools eventually tried to do their own league even offering Forbush a spot but didn't want that as they had a hard on for the MVAC. Forbush eventually appealed it to the state in 2016 for a MVAC inclusion(and had a nice presentation and everything,) but no cigar. Ashe being gone to 3A is the best thing for everyone because they can't power broker anymore as their AD seemed to have a lot of say so. Didn't help them this time.

MVAC isn't going to be weak.. it's gonna be better than what everyone figures. Not as strong as the new Northwest but pretty solid none the less. Want to see weak.. check Shelby's conference out full of awful 1A schools like Highland Tech , rthat weird conference that has Carver/Bishop McGuiness with private schools near Meck and Gastonia.. now that's weak.


Posted 10:46 pm, 03/01/2021

That's all interesting. But this will be a weak conference and with the subtraction of split-classifications, any conference winner from this new conference will struggle in the playoffs. You tend to say a lot without any proof or objectivity when making claims. I can assure you, nobody in Ashe or Wilkes County is "hissy-fitting" about North Surry or Forbush, lol. That was funny. Nonetheless, this conference will have some parity but may end up being one of the weakest conferences in the state.

East Surry's the flavor of the past decade but they will die off like Elkin did in the 2000's.. Surry county's too blood thirsty of a county to allow them to get away with winning constantly. Once the rest of the title team and the brothers of those kids go for good in another 2-3 years they will be back to what they were pre 2018.. still be a stubborn well coached team but not world winners. Their HC is a lucky yes man in the spot.. if he has to struggle I see him having a hard time. Their middle school teams have struggled the past 2 years.. it'll be nice to see them down to earth. In fact lovely.

And I wouldn't insult North Surry too much.. it says a lot that several of the schools in the MVAC had hissy fits two different times when both North Surry and Forbush respectfully asked to be put in the conference itself.. those schools who did didn't want to have any tough games in any sport. Ashe County and Wilkes Central in particular both hissy fitted at the thought of either one joining both times in the 2010's.. that's sad. If the shoe was flipped I don't see either team doing that well with the piedmont schools

Forbush will be a constant figure in the mix and when NS gains more experience after this season I see them being involved too. Both have young teams but will thud the other ones if given the chance. Same for Surry Central too.. Wilkes Central's not going to run anyone over so easy.

East Wilkes has a packed house every Friday night. They can't get passed success of their youth and middle school teams. Kids get to high school and quit working because they have been told how good they are.

West and North just don't have 2A caliber athletes. Central will fair better in their 2A conference next year. The competition will help them. They fizzle out in the playoffs when they don't have to play anyone during conference play. Same for Ashe.


Posted 3:14 pm, 02/25/2021

Wilkes is what wilkes is. There is talent but it doesn't get developed and/or kids don't take sports seriously. There is no tradition or metric/standard to strive to because football has never been consistently successful for any school in Wilkes. I enjoy watching the local teams play but that is reality. It seems like schools could care less how successful their programs are as well. That's why I get out of Wilkes on Friday nights to watch legitimate programs. I've been watching high school football for 35+ years. Schools like East Surry have talent that they don't normally have. Good luck to them.


Posted 2:45 pm, 02/25/2021

Eaat Surry will be fine in 2a. We need to worry about why the teams in Wilkes arent ok in the classifications we're currently in..Its 1 and done for the teams that do make it.


Posted 7:59 am, 02/25/2021

They can pray on Wilkes teams all they want to. Not my point. They're not beating Shelby lol. There's is about to be no more splitting classifications. And once East Surry loses those D1 kids, it's back to normalcy for them.


Posted 5:29 pm, 02/24/2021

Now they will prey on weak 2a teams like..Wilkes Central...North Wilkes...and West Wilkes..along with 1a East Wilkes some more...


Posted 5:27 pm, 02/24/2021

So little you know...Lmao you do know East Surry just beat Reidsville last season. Last season Reidsville won the 2a State championship..and is one of the winningest programs not only in NC but in the nation...So i think East Surry will do just fine in 2a.


Posted 1:27 pm, 02/14/2021

Maybe so. Even so, East Surry won't do anything in 2A. Praying on the weak 1a teams like East Wilkes is officially over.
