I agree with Squaw  -- and give the edge to Ford because of his total involvement with the district as coach, Supt. and his family's role with the Indianette's  (Ms. Ford) to Buck (player/Trails of Victory) and Lew(player).

What about Matt - most winning ever and a trip to the big dance. His family's involved too.

My impression on Ethridge was he was just about his career -- He loved the mid 70s era with being able to coach his son's  Richie and Randy and the success in years 2-5, but no doubt in my mind -and I played for him 2 varsity seasons mostly as a 2nd teamer- he was about his career and nothing wrong with that --we sure benefited as players/fans.  Give credit to Ethridge we won games.

Sidenote -- did you all see how humble and positive  Matt was in Hallabertons article in The News was this morning?  It takes a LOT of class to go to that Stadium with a smile and a handshake every Friday.

My bad, it was Bmt. Ent. and the writer is Ryan Clarke.

it's a great read and untill  anyone is put in a position like that you have no idea how awkward it is  -- you might not like his coaching style, but the fact is he is the most winning ever at PNG -- what a straight up gut he is.

I meant straight up GUY -- spell check did not catch gut.

Freudian slip,  one complant against Matt was he ran it up the gut too much.

I really enjoy this board and my hat is off to the folks that make it happen- you all are the best and thank you for your time.

After what Faircloth has done so far, you have to think we are watching the next Hall of Honor coach.

agree, but i am worried that after his contract is up that other schools will try to get him.. have to make him want to stay here and the PNGISD will have to pay the money to keep him .

I've worried about that since he got here.  Bigger schools may make him an offer that we just can't match.
