Allen Central returns a few good players... Just not convinced this program will be successful football wise in a year might take 5-6 years. Basketball will be good. Baseball depends on coach. But football will take their beatings for a few years.

I think the first order of business is what will the name of the school be. Your thread is the first place I've seen it called Floyd County Central rather than Floyd Central. That is 2 different names.

As far as the other questions you asked, get back to me in about a year and I'll have some solid information.

It can be both, just like Pike County Central...we can also just be called Pike Central.

No, The official name is Floyd Central. Not Floyd County Central. It's a proper noun, so it is different.

The Jaguars are expected to name current Prestonsburg assistant and former Sheldon Clark coach, Shawn Hager, as the HFC.

They will be placed in Class 3A District 5 with Belfry, Lawrence County, Pike County Central, and Sheldon Clark when they reenter.

When u say Hagar is a builder what is that based on? The only head coaching position that I know he ever had was at Sheldon Clark & look what kind of shape he left that program in. Now he is the assistant coach at Prestonsburg & they sure aren't tearing the the gridiron up. It's very sad that the tax payers have spent that much money on a new school & new facilities & then not hire a coach that the community can believe in & rally behind. When I look at the surrounding counties I see coaches that the people & kids believe in because they are winners. For example, Haywood, Matney, Chirico, & Coach Mac. Why can't the people making these decisions in Floyd County have any vision? The Young men playing football in Floyd County deserve a great coach too. If he is in fact the new coach I pray that I'm wrong & he can turn that program into something?

The decline in the mining industry hurt Sheldon Clark.

I'm sorry...but Rome wasn't built in a day. The Coaches you mentioned are at schools that have long standing success..... I'm sorry if you feel like the job is better than Shawn Hager.....but apparently it's not....if in fact he's been selected to take the helm. BTW, you certainly can't blame the current SC situation on Shawn Hager Have you been over there in the last few years? The economy has been decimated. I don't care if Nick Saban was coaching over there.....that program had no chance of succeeding once the working people of Martin Co had to move. Hager did an excellent job of following a "local legend" in Matney. Certainly not an easy thing to do. He invested time into the youth and middle school programs, all the while trying to put his stamp on the high school. I never said he was the perfect candidate. In fact...he definitely has some flaws. He can be a tad bit too emotional during games. Sometimes his eyes are bigger than his stomach in terms of taking too many chances. But he's a quality guy that knows football. I would much rather have someone like Hager coming into the situation...than a green, assistant coach with no head coaching experience. Neither Allen Central nor South Floyd have been world beaters......but Hager has tasted some success at SC. He'll be fine....but he'll need some time and patience from the "rabid following" over there in Floyd Co.

No school in the United States has been hurt more by the declining coal industry than Sheldon Clark.

I would have to agree with this statement. Martin Co. had lots of coal but not many other options for gainful employment. People have to go where the jobs are and their children go with them.

I don't think SC will re-enter a 3A district. I think they are waiting for the average enrollment to drop to 2A. If they have to sit 2 more years they will.

As for the new coach how many Blackcats will follow?

One advantage in hiring Hager is that he will bring a host of middle schoolers from Adams. That will be a good building block for the program.

Paintsville football was nearly extinct when Chirico came in and now they are state championship contenders. The difference is that kids want to play for quality coaches like Chirico. Nothing will change at Floyd Central with Hager and I can assure you that not one kid from Adams middle will go there because of him. One kid has already left for paintsville and the rest are close behind.

HE didn't leave the program in that kind of shape. The decline of Martin County goes far beyond their sports, in particular, football program.

You better get somebody who loves the area and the community. You match that with somebody who has had success (and, he had plenty of that at Sheldon Clark), then you better role with him.

A new school, in a district with the Trinity of mountain football, not to mention a new school made of two places that just don't have that much of a football tradition isn't going to be a big draw to the masses. Just isn't.

I think Hager would be be a knockout of a hire.

All he did was recruit the kids across the creek at Central....How many are on the roster this year 16?

Shawn is Henry Webb's former basketball teammate at Alice Lloyd. There is more connection to his getting this job than just coaching skills.

Hager got fired (temporarily) for calling their superintendent to task because they had raw sewage in their locker room


Hager can be critiqued for winning with what Matney left, but the downfall at Sheldon Clark cannot be blamed on him at all. That was the culmination of the deadly economy, an outdated school/facilities, and an administration who didn't know how to handle the entire situation.

Now here is somebody that's in the KNOW! And this is exactly what is gonna happen. From what we were told up here is that the superintendent had the opportunity to make a splash with this hire but refused to spend the money. That's the same reason Haywood left Pburg and we all know how that turned out. Like I said "NO VISION". Since the superintendent doesn't know anything about football I think he would've served the people of this county better by finding sum people who did & let them help him make this important decision. Because it is important to the people up here. I know there are plenty of football people who love this area who would like a shot at building a program - shouldn't b a hard sell especially with brand new facilities, great boosters and the talent that has came outta mud creek and both beaver creeks plus the kids that would've came from the pburg area.

Drives me crazy people talking about coach Chirico recruiting kids form Prestonsburg and Central. The truth is the kids see a winner and that's who they want to play for. I wish everyone would quit belly aching about recruiting. If you don't like it, then you need to get your coach to respect kids and teach them to win in life as well as on the filed. Chirico for President!!!!

Not going to happen. 20 miles to Floyd Central or 25 miles to Paintsville, Pikeville or Johnson Central. The only kid at Adams that will play at Floyd Central if Hager gets the job is his son. With that being said I do think Hager is a good hire for Floyd Central.

Here's another thing to consider:

I have spoken to someone in the administration at Belfry, and they told me that they fully expect to drop to 2A at the next realignment. Loss of coal jobs has finally hit Pond Creek.

IF that happens, Floyd Central will be in a much more attractive district and class than Prestonsburg, who will find themselves in at least the same region if not same district as the Pirates.
