Heard Farr took job at Russellville.  Any truth?

It is true. I wish Coach Farr the best of luck at Russellville - he'll do a good job over there.  Coach Horton is the interim head coach I think, and will hopefully be the next head coach.  I think he or Coach Thrash would do a good job.

Nevermind the last part - Coach Thrash will be at PA next year.

I thought Farr was a Defensive guy?  Didn't Thrash run the offense at Maumelle?

I think Coach Farr handled the O-line.  I'm not sure who handled the playcalling.  I assume it was Coach Thrash, since he is the OC.

Wow! Leaving a HC position to be OC.  I thought Maumelle was a pretty good place. Must not be as good as I thought.

It is. It's just not always the best fit, just like anywhere else. I wouldn't say the move is a step back or even a lateral move. Russellville is in a higher classification and just won a state title, while Maumelle is in rebuilding mode.

Believe he forfeited games both years due to ineligible players. I know they forfeited at least all their conferences games this year. I don't think the players will miss him and he won't miss Maumelle

We are talking about Farr?  He's leaving Maumelle for Russellville?  He is giving up a HC for OC?  He had to forfeit games at MHS for playing ineligible players. Yes Russellville won a championship but I think they have changed some big pieces of the staff that won it.  Sounds like might be more to story.

There really isn't. It just wasn't the right fit and he found a good spot at a good program. It is what it is.

High school




Chief can back me up on this. It's not the facilities or school in Maumelle. It's the competiton of getting kids to the school when you have to compete with Families in town that send their kids to PA, LRCA, CAC, and the Maumelle charter school.

Nice facilities it looks like for sure! If a good coach came in there and was able to hold onto kids from transferring, he'd have a good setup.

I will say its tough to get kids to stay if they think they get a better deal from a charter school or a private.  To me it seems you are fighting recruiting, since kids can choose to go out of the district to those schools.  Charters ought to have the same 1 up classification as a private?

Do they have visitor stands? I remember hearing that they didn't have any a few years ago, maybe for a playoff game or something?

We do.  They were installed prior to this past season.  And AirWarren is absolutely correct.  Maumelle as a community is outstanding, but the transfers to private and/or charter schools have been a hindrance.  The facilities are excellent.

Charters are no where near what say a PA is.

Warren'a soccer team beat LISA academy 17-0 I think.

Charter schools and athletics have a LONG WAY TO GO.

The main reason students transfer from public schools to charter schools is academics. If Public schools don't move to improve in that area, then students will continue to leave for charter schools.

Maumelle had a few major basketball players transfer a few years ago.

Guess it balanced a bit.

Do some research on some of the metro area charter schools. No different than sending a kid to LR HALL.

Kids not being sent to Maumelle has been going on since Maumelle was Oak Grove High school. Well before the inception of charter schools.

The fact that Maumelle is still part of the PCSSD could be a big part of the problem.

Maumelle is one of the premier basketball programs in Central Arkansas. Football hasn't had that same level of success. Just as kids transfer to Maumelle for basketball, equally as many transfer over to NLR for football.

Coach Horton is the interim head coach right now.  He has applied.  I haven't really heard much else - there was mention of Coach Evans, who used to be the OC here under Buchan.  I believe his name was mentioned earlier in this thread, and I've heard his name pop up but I don't know if he's applied.  That's about all I know.  We should know more in the next couple of weeks.

I'll leave any personal opinions out of the public forum - I will say that I'd be pleased if Coach Horton gets the job.  I'd be fine if it were Coach Evans too.  Other than that, I won't speculate without knowing who's applied and who will interview.

And faster recievers, someone that can throw the ball, and kids who look hesitant to hit, and stronger as a whole not just lineman. The talent level in Maumelle for football has dropped drastically probably because lack of success. If horton or whoever gets it comes in and wins then talent level will rise.

Doubt he would have a shot with is history at NLR and what went on there. Maumelle has been in trouble the last two years with Farr at the helm the last thing they need is a head coach with an already stained rep

As for 2 current freshman who are actually receivers running a 4.4 I would love to see that.

The 2 best quarterbacks on campus didn't play last fall.  From what I understand they will both be back next fall.  They both have cannons.  One will be a senior and one will be a junior.  We'll be fine at quarterback if one or both come back.

Maumelle will never be short on skill position players.  The big concern in offseason was the lack of linemen.  Now that Coach K is in charge, 4 or 5 linemen have returned to offseason.  Trust me, the talent will be there.
