Outlook for Hunt football in 2013


RE: Outlook for Hunt football in 2013

OK. You know thats where Michael Vick and Norm Sneed played high school football? Why are we playing them? Seems strange a high school 170 miles away with an enrollment of over 1600 is coming to Wilson to play a 3A school.

Only way hunt is going to win state is to get past northern guilford which has only lost like six games since the school opened

Toughen the schedule up

RE: Outlook for Hunt football in 2013

If your info is right, which I'm gonna have to see it to believe it, they have. Not sure how a tougher non-con schedule would have helped us against NG, we have no problem handling everybody else and the Big East will be back to its normal tough conference status next season. Still prefer scheduling local, I like being able to travel less than a half hour to all road games. We could schedule Alabama, Notre Dame, and Georgia early in the year and still not beat NG the last 2 years.

@jsh. I am with you on that one. If that schedule is right, it makes no sense, especially with the travel expense that the county charges the school to use the activity buses. This year it is $3.75 per mile. I can think of at least a dozen teams that would "toughen" the schedule that are less than an hour away from Wilson. Even if the games next season are at Hunt, the next year would most likely be away. From that list the only ones that make sense are South Central (not an upgrade), Hertford, and naturally the county rivalry game with Beddingfield. They should have kept SWE and tried scheduling someone like Tarboro (even though they will be 1-A next year).

RE: Outlook for Hunt football in 2013

Good point Teach. I was only considering the cost of gas for a bus that gets about 4 miles a gallon. When I read it last night I googled it and Warwick is 167 miles, Currituck 135 miles, and NEastern 117 miles and that's from a generic point in Wilson and not the school. I had heard we were having trouble filling our schedule next year, but would like to think with all the schools within 50 miles we could fill it more cost efficient than this one. Even though my gift level probably doesn't even qualify me for "cheap skate level", as a booster I'd be looking for answers. Makes no sense to put our kids on a bus for over 3 hours to Va. I remember in the 80s when Northeastern was a conference game it was a noon dismissal, not sure it does our kids good to miss the class time this schedule would necessitate.
@Mojo are you SURE what you have seen is the schedule or just a list of potential opponents? Would miss the SWE rivalry and from some parts of the district CBAycock is just as close as Beddingfield and a long time opponent.

Agree the competitive competion can be found locally. I say cleveland and Gibbons outta conference would be a good series to start. It really doesnt matter to me though. We need to be ready to play anybody on any given friday.

For the record, I believe Randy will be back. He loves it too good.
