If Strong folds.........then the 2A-8 will have Hermitage, Woodlawn, and now a 3rd team that might not make the season.  I'm glad CHG has gone back to 3A.

IDK about this. This would raise more questions and problems than just allowing some of these schools to play 8man

so when does the state step in and shut them down.  The rumor in this area is that it's a total joke of a school district.

Seems like Jackson was the DC that year. He took over the next year when Davis went to Waldron. Davis has done very little since.

Davis was the head coach but after the PC game that year the superintendent stepped in and demoted Davis and gave Jackson the reigns. Davis was still listed as the Head coach of the team but was an assistant on the sidelines.

That's the truth to it. I know Jerry well and that was what happened. He took over all playcalling duties on the offensive side of the ball halfway through the season.

That's what Jerry Langston told me personally as well.    Though Langston told me that he basically called the same things that Coach Davis was calling but that it was an issue of player (and fan confidence) that had taken a beating with the shocking and bizarre loss to PC.

As the playoffs went on it was basically Coach Langston who was the "figurehead" and Coach Davis who was calling the shots again but by then Strong was rolling and no one cared.

I often miss working at Strong.

Yep that's what I got out of it as well. Jackson was never the head coach that year. Not in title or behind the scenes.

I think Langston's mid-season role change was less for play calling and more for personnel assignment.  Davis thought KD would be more effective at the RB spot, Langston let KD go all Scam Newton on folks at QB.  It eventually became obvious to even Davis that KD could do the most damage to opponents from behind center.  At that point, Davis "danced with who brung him."
