Back when Middlesboro went 9-3 and ran the district Danville and LCA were both awful if my memory serves right. Since then, this district has become one of the toughest conferences in the state with Dville, LCA and Somerset churning at full bore. Middlesboro has the makeup of a 1a mountain school and has no business in that conference. No business putting public school kids on a 2.5 hour bus ride to go play at a private school in Lexington that charges $11,000 per head and recruits a whole new team every year.

If the KHSAA sticks Middlesboro back in that conference after realignment they should absolutely drop out on them!!!

From what I hear Middlesboro will likely go 1a and get back to playing the same mountain teams that our program fed off of from 1995-2008.

The expansion of 6 divisions which forced Middlesboro out of its traditional region is the biggest problem affecting this program.

That type of attitude you bring from TN. is not what this team needs. Dropping out is QUITTING. The rest can look at it however you want, but at least call it for what it is. This district has been tough since it was formed. It has never been terrible. Don't speak after a coach that is trying to keep a job. You have no idea what is happening here. Changes are coming either on coaching side or administration side. Fact.

Really? This statement alone sums up that program. You guys don't have to play your district in playoffs but have not been remotely competitive. Class 2 A numbers and can't win the Class A local district? Numbers and stats don't lie. It is obvious what this program needs, new faces from top to bottom.

It's hard to believe Middlesboro would be one of the smallest 32 football schools in the state to qualify for 1A, but I guess it's possible.
That doesn't seem like the traditional district for Middlesboro to me though. They were always a 2A team when I was growing up, in the same district as Corbin, Cawood, Bell etc....

HCS, he is not from Middlesboro. From TN and has no idea the past of our school. You are correct Corbin, Somerset has always been our big games, in the past. He thinks because we win the State in 98' Class A that has been our Class.

NextGen, just because you were let go doesn't mean you have to keep wielding the torch. Let it go man. Forgiveness will set you free 😊.

I have worked at the same place for years. I can promise you one thing I was not a fan of the Frazier hire. You thinking I am him ,sums it up with what you know. I have never tried to hide who I am. You know nothing of what this program has done in the past.

According to my Relative on the board (Tri State if that helps) we have a new superintendent that says he can not fire the coach it is the principalís job and a principal that says all firings are done by the superintendent. This is the leadership we have here. Of course the principal may be conditioned to those practices by the last superintendent. Either way 3 board members are not happy. That is 3 of 5 and that matters.

The principal blames the super and the super blames the principal........

I am just curious who the genius was who fired Frazier and Chappell. Seriously you fired a guy who went 9-3.....have you even won that many games since they left?

Somebody has to take the reins of the horse and lead it in the right direction and dropping out of the district is certainly not the right direction. Just shut down the program instead of embarrassing the community. Or commit to building a solid program and hire a coach who can turn things round.

If Zach was a man he would resign and let the kids try something new! But it's all about him! Selfish person that will get some jobs created to coach as well!

I remember Bell County and Cawood being 3A along with Whitley County. You must be older than dirt. lol

Lots of new teams coming into the Mountain 2a region. When will they release potential districts?

I'd like to see:

Middlesboro, Leslie County, Breathitt County, Knott Central.

This was very close to the old district at one time. No matter how you cut it, teams have to travel with the 6 divisions but teams should still be kept within their geographic region as much as possible.

They were in 2A until the 1975 realignment - so I guess you're right about the dirt part.

Looking at the Class AA alignment pre-1975 is a real eye opener...10-13 teams in each district with 41 total teams on the west side and 43 teams on the east!

Mathematically speaking, simply making it to the state finals was a tougher feat than winning a title in the current 6-class system.

Yes, Harlan was 9-0-1 in 1968 and tied Lynch and didn't make the playoffs. Lynch won the state that year.

New alignment has worked great for the rebuilding of a once competitive program. Things could get better, 1st, super that thought he knew something about sports is gone. 2nd, out of the toughest district in 2A. We can try to rebuild and be competitive again. Now, a change in coaching. We can get a top notch coach. Many of you used the excuse that no one wanted it because of what district we were in. Well, now we can go get a very good coach and complete the things that have to happen to get this program back. Look at the basketball program and what a good coach can do for a program.
