« on: May 10, 2007, 03:05:43 pm »
This year Junction City sent there football team to the finals, Basketball team was crowned Champions, Powerlifting team was crowned, and the Baseball team finished in the semis.  When if ever has another 2A school finished with all three (Football, Basketball, and Baseball) in the semis and beyond.

Dragon baseball  has certainly slipped into mediocrity and the "Powers That be" know it.  It is a shame when your best baseball players will not go out for the team.  I also think there may be some what of a effort to cover this up. I have noticed all year that the Dragon record was mentioned maybe twice in all the articles in the El Dorado paper. At the same time, it seemed every other school mentioned in the paper had its record listed. Then when JC upset two top seeds in the playoffs, mysteriously the paper lists their record in those articles. Coincidence or what? I don't know.

  Word is from a friend of mine that Hammett plays favorites, and if he didn't their record would have been a lot better. I have also been told the same statement about some good ball players didn't come out for the team because of this. On a football note, If Carpenter would implement a good passing game, them boys down there would look like a bunch of pimps with all those rings on their fingers.

I just wonder how many of these junction kids are really eligible.  Obviously they are or this would come out, but why are some of the Junction players passing there, but they were not very academically sound at other schools.  Sounds like a little home town brewing to me.  I have heard of students leaving other districts to play at Junction because they suddenly became eligible at Junction.  HMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!! ;D

Actually, there have been a number of kids who have transfered to JC and went out for football. The hole in this conspiracy theory is that most of these kids ending up quiting due to the brutal conditioning and practice schedules that Carpenter operates. For every one who may not know this, things are run a little different down here in JC.


 We also have an excellent remedial education program here at JC so any of you'll that have talented athletes that need a little help, well send them on down and well make sure their name is spelled right on their championship rings. ::)

Hoof brings home state title in discus


   News-Times Staff  CABOT - Kurtis Hoof went into Wednesdayís Meet of Champions in Cabot with a goal and he accomplished it.
   The Junction City senior had a career best throw of 162 feet, two inches in the discus to earn the meet title in that event.
   However, it wasnít until his fifth throw that Hoof released his best ever heave.
   "Itís a lot of weight off my chest. I was happy. I was throwing 120 and 130ís before that." He said. "It was just one of those days. Nobody was throwing over 145 (feet) I didnít have anybody to push me so I kind of struggled a bit."
   According to Junction City coach Brad Smith, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Hoof broke out of his funk.
   "He was unflappable," Smith said. "You knew he would bounce back."
The way Hoof started was long forgotten once the meet winning throw was recorded. "It feels good to be a senior and go out undefeated," he said. "That was my goal for this season."
   Junction City freshman Byran Jones also had a great day with a personal best throw of 48 feet, eight inches in the shot put. His toss was good enough for seventh place.
   "Heís a competitor. He always finds a way to get it done. Heís a hard worker," said Smith. "Like many of the kids at Junction City he wants to win and will cut your head off in order to get a victory."................................

well jessieville did just as good football champions, basketball boys & girls state runner up, baseball boys quaterfinalist, track third in the state meet without Noles, Fort, Terwigiller, AN Burk with a hurt ankle, girls track third with two seniors.
So i think jessieville did just as good in sports as jc an any other school in the state.

J'ville and JC definitely had the two best 2A overall athletic programs for 2006-2007.  Congratulations to both programs.

No disrespect to the track and field folks, or the golfers, or the weight lifters, or the ladies, etc.; but Dragon I asked about the "big three" (football, baseball, boys basketball).

1) Football:  J'ville gets 1 point win in state championship over JC.  Advantage J'ville.

2) Boys Basketball:  JC gets mercy rule win in state championship over J'ville.  Everything even.

3) Baseball:  J'ville reaches elite eight.  JC reaches final four.  Advantage JC.


To get back to Dragon I's original question, previously 2A football powers Shiloh Christian and Rison have historically not had strong baseball programs.  Barton '96-'97 did final four football and baseball but don't know about their basketball program.  I don't know if any school in any class would have final four-ed in football, baseball, and boys basketball in the same school year.  My guess would be maybe Nashville, Warren, Texarkana, Pine Bluff, Little Rock Central or Fort Smith Southside if any.

OK Mark, calm down.  You seem to be the only person in Junction City that thinks this way.  Many have watched practice, and many have seen them play.  The kids that didn't play that were better than many that started, just didn't want to have to kiss rear-end to have to play.  The good thing about football at Junction City is it is in no way political.  People from outside of the district no whats going on.  When folks from Parkers Chapel and Norphlet see it, there is a problem.  Don't be blind to the fact.  Like it matters anyway, PC is loaded next year, although a few more key players sure would help.

I know for a fact, that there is one kid who will not play and he is Hammett's nephew. Eric Major is the best  ball player over there(in my opinion). I know he's "up for the challenge" because he is a great all around athlete.

I can't speak for this year because I didn't make any of the games, but I was told by several sources (parents and people who follow and know baseball) that  last year when baseball practice started several players were delegated to the batting cages everday while Hammett's chosen practiced on the field. Hammett was still coaching basketball and hadn't even seen the hand he had been dealt. Assistant coach Smith was running practice. These kids were not given a equal chance to fight for a position. Hammett had his team picked before practice even started.
Who would have ever thought you'd see freshmen starting for JC and upperclassmen riding the bench. What's even worse is that when the freshmen started making stupid mistakes (as freshmen will do) that cost them games, Hammett would still not play his upperclassmen. This what upset alot of the parents and Dragon supporters.


P.S. I don't who "killerWood" is but I would suggest some remedial courses on punctuation and sentence structure before you post again. It makes it easier for all of us to understand your point. Just a thought ;D

I never claimed to be an English professor and that my posts were perfect. I sometimes omit commas and commit other grammatical errors, but I have enough of a red-neck education to know a  run-on sentence when I see one.
By the way, the key word in my post was "remedial".   I'll be the first to admit that a refresher on grammar would probably benefit me as well.

One thing Joe Paul didn't changed when he became head coach of the Dragon baseball team two seasons ago was using a designated hitter.  I guess all AR high school coaches don't use a DH; Junction does.  That should be the tenth player "on the field."

While I might disagree with some things Dragon I, dragonator, trojandad and others have posted about the current state of JC baseball, count me as someone who'd take the position the bulk of what they've posted is unfortunately accurate.

PC has a great program and should be congratulated on their success. No offense, but until they win as many championships as JC has over the years, PC's experiences are really not relavant to this discussion. Those  players that played in the 70's and 80's under the environment and coaching philosophy of Bolen and Hux when JC was winning titles against all comers (when state tournament was open classification) can relate to what were talking about.

3. first base
4. second base
5. third base
6. short stop
7. left field
8. center field
9. right field

Mark (Killerwood), this issue has already been addressed in a previous post.  Face it, your hacked because you couldn't make it on the football field. 

For the rest of the posters, I promise, his whining and lack of overall intelligence do not reflect the education or discipline of the Junction City Public School System.  Whining gets you nothing in the football program but the bench, maybe for him it got a starting catchers spot.

come on folks, hammet is playin favorites? when i was a freshman i spent every practice at the cage the whole time and i am very thankful for it because it made me a better ball player. and as for major not coming out for baseball its most certainly not because hammet plays favorites, especially if he's his cousin, major's problem was that he didnt really care for baseball and wanted to spend time in the weight room.  o and i know my puncuation, grammar, and spelling isnt correct, i dont need a nit picker to identify it for me.

Major wanting to be in the weight room had nothing to do with him not playing baseball.

And Killerwood, you still haven't named a sport where ten are on the FIELD at the same time.  The DH is in the dugout while the other nine are playing.  Try again. ::)

If anyone is interested:

Reference to Koby McKinnon in the Fox article on ASU. 

They also mention Ben Owens who I think was a Bearden Bear.

This area's well represented in the story. Koby McKinnon was outstanding in football, basketball and track at JC. Ben Owens was a four-sport letterman at Bearden. Tyrell Johnson, one of the best D-backs in the league, played at Rison if I'm not mistaken.

The thing about as soon as practice started some are sent to the cages while the others stay up on the field.   Well.....just being totally honest.....that has gone on at JC since I can remember......and if anyone knows me......I started going to JC baseball practices when I was around 7 years old.   This goes all the way back to Coach Bolen days.....and he was a decent coach .... ;)....anyway......as long as I can remember it.....JC would run their laps......stretch.......warm the arms up......then we would separate......the top 18....and sometimes less would stay up on the field....and the dozen or so others would go the cages to hit hit hit and hit some more.   That is what would make them better........once the season got going......we only had so many hours a week we were allowed to practice by the AAA.....and if the other 12 were involved with every phase of the practice.......we would not be working the top 18 enough.......when Coach Bolen and Coach Hux were in charge....the practices were very structured.    Fundamentals were touched on EVERY day......live BP........and infield practice till it was done right.     Between the 2 coaches...."Bolen and Hux" there were over 700 victories.......6 state titles.....3 rup finishes.....and over 20 semifinal appearances........Coach Bolen was 385-63 as a head coach with 4 state titles.  He may have won another one in 1986 if he had not died on the field during the first round of the state tourney.    Coach Hammett is a coach Bolen disciple.........I personally played 3 years for Joe Paul at the airport.....and he never played favorites......I don't see it in his Character........it would suprise me more than if the sun didn't rise tomorrow if he was doing that.    Coaches Hux and Bolen did it the right way........with class.....integrity.......and knowledge of the game in all phases........Coach Bolen was named Arkansas High School coach of the year 5 times.....and Coach Hux twice.........Joe Paul played for both of the these men.........I just don't see this being something that he could or better yet....would do.    If he was Coach Bolen would have already crawled out of that grave that is about 40 yards from home plate and had a long talk with the man ;)     Give Joe Paul time.......he will get it back to where it used to be.....I have no doubt.     We have just been kinda thin on the mound the last couple of years....

Didn't want to start a new thread and since Eric Major had been mentioned here thought it would fit.

Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley and his staff conducted the Dooley-Dawg Kick-To-Win Instructional Camp at Joe Aillet Stadium in early June.

The Kick-To-Win Instructional Camp was for young men entering grades 7 through 12 and was geared towards placekickers, punters and deep snappers.  The camp featured instructions from former NFL players Chris Boniol, Toby Gowin and Trey Junkin. The threesome combined to log over 30 years of NFL experience at their respective positions.

I understand they separated the young men into groups based on their ages and the size of their schools.  Eric was not only the top rated punter in his group, but he was also the overall top rated punter at the camp.

Eric was the starting Dragon QB and punter as a junior last year.  Understand the QB spot may be up for grabs this year.  Whatever position he plays this year, there is no doubt that boy can punt and probably could at the next level.

Congratulations, Eric.
