Default Teddy Smith to Pikeville is Official
He has enrolled. Wish him the best of Luck as a Panther! Glad to have him aboard.

Just wanted to clear up any confusion.

Unless KBA changed the rules this year, he has to play 3 official games with them before he can play at KBA.

Interesting, unaware of this. Maybe he will not be participating if that is the case.

If you knew Coach Holbrook from Johnson Central's name on here, maybe he could clear it up a little bit more for you guys. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure last year they had to play three games before the state tournament so their 8th graders who were playing high school only last year would be eligible. I do remember them contacting us during that time about a game. Get in touch with Coach Johnson and let him know to make sure, Teddy would give them a lot of depth for the state tournament. They would be a load to handle!

I am curious as to how this has affected his team mates and coaches at Johns Creek. He was definatly their go-to guy, and he did a good job. I'm not knocking anyone here, please don't think that, but what happened to the day where you took your best 5 from say, Johns Creek, Mullins, Pikeville or wherever and you played the best 5 from another place. If you got beat, you worked harder, tried to improve and beat them the next time. Now it seems with a lot of kids, (parents too), if their kid has a little adversity somewhere, or if the don't win enough or whatever, they are ready to move. Again, I realize this may be an unrealistic view, but this is after all, MIDDLE SCHOOL. I didn't see Coach Cal at any middle school game around here this year. I'm certainly not trying to speak for the Smith's as to why he moved, I don't know them personally, I just wish things were different, that's all.

Like you, I can't speak for the Smiths either. I can only speculate, but to jump and assume that it may be due to sports only is unfair to him or his family. Perhaps he liked Pikeville better? Or the academics better? Who knows? All we can do is support him and wish him the best, like we try to do with all the kids. I remember the days when you took your 5 best and coached them and put them up against someone elses' 5 best too. Sadly, that's not the norm anymore. But it is what it is, and I wish him (and Johns Creek) the best.

As a parent you do what is best for your kid.

East Ridge has had some success in girls softball, limited in boys basketball.

Phelps has had success in what in the past 10-15 years?

Belfry success in football, volleyball, girls basketball and limited in boys basketball.

Shelby Valley limited in girls basketball and GREAT success in basketball.

Pike Central girls basketball for a while and then what?

Pikeville has in football and limited in basketball.


Why would you send your son to Pike Central or Phelps in this county?

yeah, I do wish him the best. Hope he stays injury free and realizes his potential, no matter what that may be in. But like you say, It certainly isn't like it used to be.

Pikeville's been pretty good at baseball as well. Pike Central has had some recent football success, but being in the region with Belfry is in most years a no win situation for the Hawks. Good Luck to this young man!!!

I don't think the kid moved for academics.

As far as great programs, I think there are two in the county. SVHS Basketball, BHS Football.

Basketball - SVHS

Football - BHS

Baseball - Pikeville

Sometimes people are offer bigger and better things to get a child to change schools, for sports reasons. They are not always for the right reasons, why? give up your friends Why? because they are promised a starting position on a basketball team who in Pikeville 8th graders are going to a backseat to this Smith boy. no parent is gonna be happy to have someone come in and take their son's place on the team... I believe the Smith boy should have stay where he was at, because they will play nice for a while then it will be over. he just open up a spot at P/C for some one else... I just hope his brother will think about it before he makes the same mistake... It's not always greener on the other side.....He was an exceptional ball player and person at J/C, but while he was out they still won games... We wish him luck at pikeville, because he is gonna need it....

You can not play anyone who is not on the roster that was sent in. Last year I had to play my kids in three games, we played nine. They checked our roster and matched it up when we got to the final 4.

Why is he "gonna need" good luck at Pikeville? True, there ARE some parents out there who will look at it as someone "taking" their child's spot, but that is true no matter what school you go to when you transfer. No one is "promised" a starting spot, contrary to what you might believe/hear. You still have to earn it on the court in practice and games. In today's day and age, with all the social media available, and the fact that Johns Creek and Pikeville are so close, I don't think he will be giving up his friends. I attended Pikeville while living in the county, and I didn't lose my friends. Don't overreact to a child switching schools, it happens every day.

Also I think most Coaches just like the players want to win......So they will play their best no matter the situation.

True, no one is EVER promised a starting position however, being a coach in Pikeville and seeing how parents react when little Johnny is not playing the amount of time THEY think he should causes conflict. I have seen it firsthand. Parents will talk behind your back not for the good of the team but for nothing more than jealousy of another childs talent, The best players should play period. Mom and Dad are not going to be there when Johnny goes to a job interview and has to stand on his own two feet are they?

"Players play, coaches coach, and parents cheer". That's my motto. If parents are going to be like that (and believe me, I know very well how that is, I've seen it first hand too as a coach), then ignore the parents. Communicate with the players about your expectations and then move on. I agree, too many parents coddle their children. I believe a parent SHOULD speak up when they see something wrong happening that is detrimental to the team as a whole (that includes telling people to shut up when they start that stuff), but otherwise, counsel their kids to go to the coach if there is conflict they are unsure of how to handle.

It has been an absolute pleasure to coach you and Austin for the past three years at JC. I know we as players and coaches have made JC a better program since 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams have been very competitive. I hope you guys are better players but more importantly better young men having played for me at JC. I wish you guys the best no matter where you play in the future. Always remember, "give yourself one second."
