Several of those players on Joe T would make Little Rock Central very competitive if it wasn’t for school choice.

Those same players from central left before there was school choice. It was so bad they moved into the Robinson zone to get away from Central

While I’m in the boat that Robinson is a fine school. Let’s now bash central for being “bad”.

https://www.greatschools.org/arkansas/little-rock/637-Central-High-School/

Great schools.com ranks LR CENTRAL. 7/10. Not bad for inner city LRSD.

https://www.greatschools.org/arkansas/little-rock/881-Joe-T.-Robinson-High-School/

Great schools.com ranks JT ROBINSON. 2/10. While I’m not so sure it deserves that low, that’s not good. Especially. Curriculum wise. Now, the district is making great strides. The middle school earned a B rating this year on 2016-2017 academic report cards.

But to say it was because central was “bad”, is a far stretch. Unless you mean football. Kids aren’t coming to JT for academics. They are coming because it’s the best field, best workout facilities, and safe area of LR. Let’s not kid ourselves. They and NLR are the hot non private transfer schools.

I didn’t say it was because of “academics”. The growth is 100% because of football. Now the new Middle school will change things and help enrollment. Robinson will probably be 5A next cycle. If not the next for sure.

Lol!! It's a class comparison.  Don't get especially upset about it.  Bauxite's senior class has owned Robinson's senior class since they started playing each other.  Those are just facts Cletus.  Can't wait to watch Robinson get their head kicked in at the Pit.  Gonna be fun watching those championship expectations get wrecked.  Does Robinson even have a state title in football? Oh that's right..1980. 38 years ago. Man that's a long long long time ago. Were you even alive then. lol!! Robinson on the road to 40 years ago.  Dang son that's what I call dominating.

Lol.....What reason do I have to be upset about? Lets see, Joe T is 7-1 vs the Miners in the last 8 years. Bauxite has only 1 state championship as well. The Senators will curb stomp the Miners at the Pit and go much deeper in the playoffs, that is if Bauxite manages to finish 5th in the conference. Lol. So you “owned” Joe T in 7th and 9th grade! Big deal, bruh! High school ball is what really matters. Go brag on the jr high boards, big man!  Haha

BM22, you got a kid on the Robinson squad? If so what number? Mine's 23 for the Miners.  1st team 4A-7 RB.  I guess since he went for over 180 last year, I'm guessing 250 plus this year and the victory. Not bragging, I've just got skin in the game.  What about you big guy? Just a lonely fellow with a phone and a cat. lol!

Bm22 is no Bauxite fan.  Hey Lumberjack fan, Nashville fan is the worst when it comes to jr. High records.  They talk smack about it constantly.  Me, I'm trying to illustrate that Bauxite has a strong senior class this year.  That is all.  I see the Miners as very competitive in the 4A-7 this year.  Not a doormat this year.  Believe it or don't makes little difference to me.  To me the best team in 4A 7 is Arkadelphia.  When most of your players have to go both ways, it makes it tough on you in the 4th quarter.  I for one would t be surprised when wefinish better than 5th in the conference.  That maybe no big deal to some but that's ok.  Big deal to me though.

Aw, c’mon man, don’t get all bent out of shape. Lol.. Being a realist, I’m just calling like I see it. Ya’ll may hang with Joe T for 1 and 1/2 quarters. Senators will then proceed to dominate. However, I’m happy that you guys may potentially go .500 this year. Big milestone for Bauxite, since they have had 8 straight losings seasons. Keep your head up, chief! BTW, kudos to your son!

LOL. My word....


Not sure why a guy who makes his living off high school football, relationships with coaches and players would take a shot at a team like that. Even if he had discussed it with the coach before AND everyone knows they benefit from being in the greater LR metro?

Sounds like he was just playing to his crowd. Most on here know that some of the Nashville crowd like to question Robinson's talent and where they come from. Of course this is after some on here question where Nashville get all of theirs from...

The real issue is why can they never win a title or even make the final game with all that talent? I'd be more impressed if he addressed that. 

Even if we all already know the answer.

Here we go again... Your Superintendent already tried to go down that rabbit hole. Drove all the way to PB. Had the AAA involved. I’m surprised they even answer his calls anymore. Turning into the boy who cried wolf.

Explain for those of us who are curious.


My word that’s a long way to commute to play football. I thought Malvern, Lonoke, and England to Hinson road was a long trek.

Rabbits live in Rabbit holes. Word is the parents were at the house when the Supt went as well as when the AAA went.  They were “checking on the house”.

AirWarren as you’ve come to learn Nashville will make anything up to bring Robinson down. The first time they’re in the conference didn’t here a word.  Come back around and pose a threat. Now they’re recruiting everyone’s kids in LR, know judges to get kids “adopted” and have kids driving  60+ miles to Little Rock.

Let’s not take into account that their facilities are brand new,  they’re located in LR where everyone has waited for a public school to be successful again and they’re helping kids get to the next level and continue their education.

Sounds like the Supt should look up what the AAA considers a legitimate move and change of domicile.

1.  A kid did get adopted. By the way, how did that work out? 
2.  Not everyone’s kids, mainly Centrals...a bunch of them in like 2 years.
3. Nobody said he drove 60 miles to go to school either. Just said that the parents were still there...and the dog tied up in the yard. And they were there when the AAA, Nashville supt, and Coach Bolding went by the house.  Lucky timing I guess.
4. This stuff is not made up. You can’t make this stuff up.

1)  You mean the kid whose at Northwest Mississippi JUCO on a full ride. Getting to pocket his entire pell grant? If he stays at his previous school is at that opportunity there? No. He’s only at JUCO because his previous  school screwed up and didn’t make sure he had the proper credits.

2) This years roster does have around 8 from Central. Who can blame them? Everyone of them except for 1 transferred after their freshmen year. On the flip side no one was saying anything when kids made up addresses to go to Central. There’s plenty of those that still due that. Robinson loses probably 10-20% of their 8th grade class to Mount, Catholic, Central, PA, LRCA or Parkview. So I doubt they feel bad when they’ve gotten some back from each one of those schools.

3) Water was turned off and the resident was cleared out. I’d leave my dog at my emptied resident if I lived in Pine Bluff. Whole family was in Little Rock before August. No one complained about his sister playing b-ball and getting points in the district track meet.

4) At some point you guys will realize that while there has been a lot of new players. There’s been three things that have happened.
A) They already lived in the zone ex: Koilan Jackson, Myles Fells, Nathan page, etc.
B) They moved into the zone ex: Mekel Kentle, Zaytron Waits, Caezar Warren, etc.
C) A couple have sat out a year and played JV only

Robinson is completely aware everyone is looking at them to “slip” up. Especially Nashville.

Thanks for the information. Really intriguing for me who has zero dog in the fight.

The Little Rock transfer situation is real and interesting.

It’s all interesting. I get some people don’t like it. I get Robinson is benefiting greatly, but at the end of the day those kids are coming there to get away from a crappy situation, and all of them are getting a chance to further their education at the next level. You can say they should stick around to make it better, but what’s there to make better? McClellan is the only school in LRSD whose done anything in the past 12 years. Surprise, surprise those kids aren’t leaving. Kentle left PB because his folks wanted out and he had other family in LR. He left a great program. At the end of the day he’s 5’7 170. He’s not the first guy you’re picking out of that PB roster. Now that being said he’s got a couple D1 offers and probably is the best player on the team right now. He didn’t have all that before he came. No one knew who Caezar Warren was before he played at Robinson. How does that happen? There was one HS football player better than him last year and he plays at Warren. How does no one in the state know about that kid until mid October?

At the end of the day should Robinson of had a state title by now? YES! But the one thing they’re doing right is getting their kids seen and opportunities to go to college. Other coaches around the state are doing the same thing.  At the end of the day a HS coaches job is to mold young men through the game of football. I’ll get off my soap box, but so tired of the they’re recruiting and cheating stuff.  No one said a word when they went to the semis back in 2010. Plenty of LRSD kids on that team as well. Little Rock and NWA are different. Robinson plays Springdale next week. They’ve got like 8 guys from HarBer... Explain that.

It’s all interesting. I get some people don’t like it. I get Robinson is benefiting greatly, but at the end of the day those kids are coming there to get away from a crappy situation, and all of them are getting a chance to further their education at the next level. You can say they should stick around to make it better, but what’s there to make better? McClellan is the only school in LRSD whose done anything in the past 12 years. Surprise, surprise those kids aren’t leaving. Kentle left PB because his folks wanted out and he had other family in LR. He left a great program. At the end of the day he’s 5’7 170. He’s not the first guy you’re picking out of that PB roster. Now that being said he’s got a couple D1 offers and probably is the best player on the team right now. He didn’t have all that before he came. No one knew who Caezar Warren was before he played at Robinson. How does that happen? There was one HS football player better than him last year and he plays at Warren. How does no one in the state know about that kid until mid October?

At the end of the day should Robinson of had a state title by now? YES! But the one thing they’re doing right is getting their kids seen and opportunities to go to college. Other coaches around the state are doing the same thing.  At the end of the day a HS coaches job is to mold young men through the game of football. I’ll get off my soap box, but so tired of the they’re recruiting and cheating stuff.  No one said a word when they went to the semis back in 2010. Plenty of LRSD kids on that team as well. Little Rock and NWA are different. Robinson plays Springdale next week. They’ve got like 8 guys from HarBer... Explain that.

That is an interesting point about the 7a West and even other small schools in that part of the state. I noticed that all of those teams up there benefit from multiple transfers out of their districts from other NWA towns and even other states...including Pennsylvania I believe.

1)  You mean the kid whose at Northwest Mississippi JUCO on a full ride. Getting to pocket his entire pell grant? If he stays at his previous school is at that opportunity there? No. He’s only at JUCO because his previous  school screwed up and didn’t make sure he had the proper credits.

2) This years roster does have around 8 from Central. Who can blame them? Everyone of them except for 1 transferred after their freshmen year. On the flip side no one was saying anything when kids made up addresses to go to Central. There’s plenty of those that still due that. Robinson loses probably 10-20% of their 8th grade class to Mount, Catholic, Central, PA, LRCA or Parkview. So I doubt they feel bad when they’ve gotten some back from each one of those schools.

3) Water was turned off and the resident was cleared out. I’d leave my dog at my emptied resident if I lived in Pine Bluff. Whole family was in Little Rock before August. No one complained about his sister playing b-ball and getting points in the district track meet.

4) At some point you guys will realize that while there has been a lot of new players. There’s been three things that have happened.
A) They already lived in the zone ex: Koilan Jackson, Myles Fells, Nathan page, etc.
B) They moved into the zone ex: Mekel Kentle, Zaytron Waits, Caezar Warren, etc.
C) A couple have sat out a year and played JV only

Robinson is completely aware everyone is looking at them to “slip” up. Especially Nashville.
Are you one of the doctors or lawyers helping all this happen?

1. If you can play they will find you. I wonder if his last school messed up that ACT as well. I’m not going to talk about a kid but his athletic career was not what I was referencing. Since you seem to be in the know then you should know. Small state, news travels.
2. That’s what I said.
3. I have no knowledge of when some random family got their utilities turned off let alone the water. The fact that you do sounds pretty fishy.
4. Living in the zone, moving in the zone, sitting out a year has nothing to do with recruiting.

EVERY program has had move ins at some point. I don't know why all of a sudden it's such a big deal.


Oh wait, I know why..."If it's not my school doing it something must be fishy."

Over the past several years, they have had senior classes that have at least 5-8 letters of intent.
