Brookland keeps the ball from you. Manila coach made some dumb calls out there tonight. Was surprised. Thought he was better than that. The hack a Shaq in the 3rd q?  Really?  Brookland has some shooters. Oh well. We will take that 18 piece.

That's what I thought. You are right, Manila beating Bay was key in BIC state run. Bay had beaten BIC badly 3-4 times I think. Obviously the Wagner genes are carrying on!

Manila has some wonderful people , when I was in the Guard we worked the Tornados that went trough there years some years ago,  it was awful. The people were super nice when I was there.
My son played with Jorganson last Fall on travel baseball team. Great Kid and player!!
Good luck to the Lions in Regionals!!

Big Lion are you sure about that?  Heard he may be looking at heading to LR area?  Very good coach and lots of talent coming up Iím told.  If he did leave who would be on Manilaís radar for a coach?  Any ideas?

Wimberley is staying at Manila.  A few said he applied at Star City.  I don't see that being true even a little.  That move just wouldn't be logical in my opinion.  Manila would have their pick of whoever they wanted.  Talent, great fan base, new high school. 

I have heard they are hiring him an assistant?  Anyone know if this is true.  He had as many coaches on staff this year has Bay has had in the past.

Wimberley never applied for that job.  Regardless, Johnny Taylor was said to have gotten the gig.

Hoffman wanted the job after he ran 6-8 girls off. Donít know the backstory, but it sure does seem to be a pattern with him

I think he also has a pattern of working kids hard and winning. Kids and parents are soft nowadays and have trouble with that whole work thing. I haven't seen Coach Hart coach but it looks like she has some patterns too. She was at 4 different colleges while in school, 1 year with a minor league program playing, 1 year at cbc as a boys assistant, 1 year at cbc as a boys assistant, 2 years at Pine Bluff before being reassigned. Just like in Coach Hoffman's case I'm sure both have their own reasons why they move around or don't work out at a certain location. I'm sure she's going to a great job or Manila wouldn't have hired her, but instead of getting on here and talking down a local coach who has a history of winning and hard work you should just set back and let the new hire prove why she was the right person for the job. Sounds to me like everyone at Manila is already making her job a lot more difficult before she ever gets started.

Not trying to run down Hoffman at all, I just don't know that he was any better fit than Coach Hart. I recognize Hoffman's winning record. How Coach Hart does is still to be seen. No one knows at this point. The girls are excited and ready to get to work. Not everyone at Manila is making her job more difficult, just a few loud ones

Riverside got 2 of the 7 back. One a rising sophomore and one a rising senior who was probably the biggest contributor of the ones who quit.
