Title: Junction City Athletics
Post by: Dragon I on May 10, 2007, 03:05:43 pm
This year Junction City sent there football team to the finals, Basketball team was crowned Champions, Powerlifting team was crowned, and the Baseball team finished in the semis.  When if ever has another 2A school finished with all three (Football, Basketball, and Baseball) in the semis and beyond.

Dragon baseball  has certainly slipped into mediocrity and the "Powers That be" know it.  It is a shame when your best baseball players will not go out for the team.  I also think there may be some what of a effort to cover this up. I have noticed all year that the Dragon record was mentioned maybe twice in all the articles in the El Dorado paper. At the same time, it seemed every other school mentioned in the paper had its record listed. Then when JC upset two top seeds in the playoffs, mysteriously the paper lists their record in those articles. Coincidence or what? I don't know.

  Word is from a friend of mine that Hammett plays favorites, and if he didn't their record would have been a lot better. I have also been told the same statement about some good ball players didn't come out for the team because of this. On a football note, If Carpenter would implement a good passing game, them boys down there would look like a bunch of pimps with all those rings on their fingers.

I just wonder how many of these junction kids are really eligible.  Obviously they are or this would come out, but why are some of the Junction players passing there, but they were not very academically sound at other schools.  Sounds like a little home town brewing to me.  I have heard of students leaving other districts to play at Junction because they suddenly became eligible at Junction.  HMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!! ;D

Actually, there have been a number of kids who have transfered to JC and went out for football. The hole in this conspiracy theory is that most of these kids ending up quiting due to the brutal conditioning and practice schedules that Carpenter operates. For every one who may not know this, things are run a little different down here in JC.


 We also have an excellent remedial education program here at JC so any of you'll that have talented athletes that need a little help, well send them on down and well make sure their name is spelled right on their championship rings. ::)

Hoof brings home state title in discus


   News-Times Staff  CABOT - Kurtis Hoof went into Wednesday’s Meet of Champions in Cabot with a goal and he accomplished it.
   The Junction City senior had a career best throw of 162 feet, two inches in the discus to earn the meet title in that event.
   However, it wasn’t until his fifth throw that Hoof released his best ever heave.
   "It’s a lot of weight off my chest. I was happy. I was throwing 120 and 130’s before that." He said. "It was just one of those days. Nobody was throwing over 145 (feet) I didn’t have anybody to push me so I kind of struggled a bit."
   According to Junction City coach Brad Smith, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Hoof broke out of his funk.
   "He was unflappable," Smith said. "You knew he would bounce back."
The way Hoof started was long forgotten once the meet winning throw was recorded. "It feels good to be a senior and go out undefeated," he said. "That was my goal for this season."
   Junction City freshman Byran Jones also had a great day with a personal best throw of 48 feet, eight inches in the shot put. His toss was good enough for seventh place.
   "He’s a competitor. He always finds a way to get it done. He’s a hard worker," said Smith. "Like many of the kids at Junction City he wants to win and will cut your head off in order to get a victory."................................

well jessieville did just as good football champions, basketball boys & girls state runner up, baseball boys quaterfinalist, track third in the state meet without Noles, Fort, Terwigiller, AN Burk with a hurt ankle, girls track third with two seniors.
So i think jessieville did just as good in sports as jc an any other school in the state.

J'ville and JC definitely had the two best 2A overall athletic programs for 2006-2007.  Congratulations to both programs.

No disrespect to the track and field folks, or the golfers, or the weight lifters, or the ladies, etc.; but Dragon I asked about the "big three" (football, baseball, boys basketball).

1) Football:  J'ville gets 1 point win in state championship over JC.  Advantage J'ville.

2) Boys Basketball:  JC gets mercy rule win in state championship over J'ville.  Everything even.

3) Baseball:  J'ville reaches elite eight.  JC reaches final four.  Advantage JC.


To get back to Dragon I's original question, previously 2A football powers Shiloh Christian and Rison have historically not had strong baseball programs.  Barton '96-'97 did final four football and baseball but don't know about their basketball program.  I don't know if any school in any class would have final four-ed in football, baseball, and boys basketball in the same school year.  My guess would be maybe Nashville, Warren, Texarkana, Pine Bluff, Little Rock Central or Fort Smith Southside if any.

OK Mark, calm down.  You seem to be the only person in Junction City that thinks this way.  Many have watched practice, and many have seen them play.  The kids that didn't play that were better than many that started, just didn't want to have to kiss rear-end to have to play.  The good thing about football at Junction City is it is in no way political.  People from outside of the district no whats going on.  When folks from Parkers Chapel and Norphlet see it, there is a problem.  Don't be blind to the fact.  Like it matters anyway, PC is loaded next year, although a few more key players sure would help.
Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: dragonator on May 30, 2007, 10:35:00 am
I know for a fact, that there is one kid who will not play and he is Hammett's nephew. Eric Major is the best  ball player over there(in my opinion). I know he's "up for the challenge" because he is a great all around athlete.

I can't speak for this year because I didn't make any of the games, but I was told by several sources (parents and people who follow and know baseball) that  last year when baseball practice started several players were delegated to the batting cages everday while Hammett's chosen practiced on the field. Hammett was still coaching basketball and hadn't even seen the hand he had been dealt. Assistant coach Smith was running practice. These kids were not given a equal chance to fight for a position. Hammett had his team picked before practice even started.
Who would have ever thought you'd see freshmen starting for JC and upperclassmen riding the bench. What's even worse is that when the freshmen started making stupid mistakes (as freshmen will do) that cost them games, Hammett would still not play his upperclassmen. This what upset alot of the parents and Dragon supporters.


P.S. I don't who "killerWood" is but I would suggest some remedial courses on punctuation and sentence structure before you post again. It makes it easier for all of us to understand your point. Just a thought ;D

I never claimed to be an English professor and that my posts were perfect. I sometimes omit commas and commit other grammatical errors, but I have enough of a red-neck education to know a  run-on sentence when I see one.
By the way, the key word in my post was "remedial".   I'll be the first to admit that a refresher on grammar would probably benefit me as well.

One thing Joe Paul didn't changed when he became head coach of the Dragon baseball team two seasons ago was using a designated hitter.  I guess all AR high school coaches don't use a DH; Junction does.  That should be the tenth player "on the field."

While I might disagree with some things Dragon I, dragonator, trojandad and others have posted about the current state of JC baseball, count me as someone who'd take the position the bulk of what they've posted is unfortunately accurate.

PC has a great program and should be congratulated on their success. No offense, but until they win as many championships as JC has over the years, PC's experiences are really not relavant to this discussion. Those  players that played in the 70's and 80's under the environment and coaching philosophy of Bolen and Hux when JC was winning titles against all comers (when state tournament was open classification) can relate to what were talking about.

Mark (Killerwood), this issue has already been addressed in a previous post.  Face it, your hacked because you couldn't make it on the football field. 

For the rest of the posters, I promise, his whining and lack of overall intelligence do not reflect the education or discipline of the Junction City Public School System.  Whining gets you nothing in the football program but the bench, maybe for him it got a starting catchers spot.

come on folks, hammet is playin favorites? when i was a freshman i spent every practice at the cage the whole time and i am very thankful for it because it made me a better ball player. and as for major not coming out for baseball its most certainly not because hammet plays favorites, especially if he's his cousin, major's problem was that he didnt really care for baseball and wanted to spend time in the weight room.  o and i know my puncuation, grammar, and spelling isnt correct, i dont need a nit picker to identify it for me.

This area's well represented in the story. Koby McKinnon was outstanding in football, basketball and track at JC. Ben Owens was a four-sport letterman at Bearden. Tyrell Johnson, one of the best D-backs in the league, played at Rison if I'm not mistaken.

The thing about as soon as practice started some are sent to the cages while the others stay up on the field.   Well.....just being totally honest.....that has gone on at JC since I can remember......and if anyone knows me......I started going to JC baseball practices when I was around 7 years old.   This goes all the way back to Coach Bolen days.....and he was a decent coach .... ;)....anyway......as long as I can remember it.....JC would run their laps......stretch.......warm the arms up......then we would separate......the top 18....and sometimes less would stay up on the field....and the dozen or so others would go the cages to hit hit hit and hit some more.   That is what would make them better........once the season got going......we only had so many hours a week we were allowed to practice by the AAA.....and if the other 12 were involved with every phase of the practice.......we would not be working the top 18 enough.......when Coach Bolen and Coach Hux were in charge....the practices were very structured.    Fundamentals were touched on EVERY day......live BP........and infield practice till it was done right.     Between the 2 coaches...."Bolen and Hux" there were over 700 victories.......6 state titles.....3 rup finishes.....and over 20 semifinal appearances........Coach Bolen was 385-63 as a head coach with 4 state titles.  He may have won another one in 1986 if he had not died on the field during the first round of the state tourney.    Coach Hammett is a coach Bolen disciple.........I personally played 3 years for Joe Paul at the airport.....and he never played favorites......I don't see it in his Character........it would suprise me more than if the sun didn't rise tomorrow if he was doing that.    Coaches Hux and Bolen did it the right way........with class.....integrity.......and knowledge of the game in all phases........Coach Bolen was named Arkansas High School coach of the year 5 times.....and Coach Hux twice.........Joe Paul played for both of the these men.........I just don't see this being something that he could or better yet....would do.    If he was Coach Bolen would have already crawled out of that grave that is about 40 yards from home plate and had a long talk with the man ;)     Give Joe Paul time.......he will get it back to where it used to be.....I have no doubt.     We have just been kinda thin on the mound the last couple of years....

Didn't want to start a new thread and since Eric Major had been mentioned here thought it would fit.

Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley and his staff conducted the Dooley-Dawg Kick-To-Win Instructional Camp at Joe Aillet Stadium in early June.

The Kick-To-Win Instructional Camp was for young men entering grades 7 through 12 and was geared towards placekickers, punters and deep snappers.  The camp featured instructions from former NFL players Chris Boniol, Toby Gowin and Trey Junkin. The threesome combined to log over 30 years of NFL experience at their respective positions.

I understand they separated the young men into groups based on their ages and the size of their schools.  Eric was not only the top rated punter in his group, but he was also the overall top rated punter at the camp.

Eric was the starting Dragon QB and punter as a junior last year.  Understand the QB spot may be up for grabs this year.  Whatever position he plays this year, there is no doubt that boy can punt and probably could at the next level.

Congratulations, Eric.

JUNCTION CITY – A committee hoping to raise money for a new multipurpose fieldhouse for Dragons’ athletics will have its first meeting on Monday.
   The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday at the community center. Organizers are encouraging all former and current players, parents of former and current players, fans, boosters and supporters of the football program to attend the meeting. A board will be named and fundraisers will be created to raise much needed funds.
   According to head football coach David Carpenter, the current fieldhouse has severe problems, including major leaks when it rains. Carpenter’s office, the weightroom and lockerrooms have all been damaged during recent rains.
   The current fieldhouse is decades old. State law mandates that a school can’t spend money directly on a football fieldhouse because not all students will use the facility.
   The committee wants to raise enough money to construct a new multipurpose fieldhouse that would house coaches’ offices, dressing rooms, showers and a weightroom.

The thing about as soon as practice started some are sent to the cages while the others stay up on the field.   Well.....just being totally honest.....that has gone on at JC since I can remember......and if anyone knows me......I started going to JC baseball practices when I was around 7 years old.   This goes all the way back to Coach Bolen days.....and he was a decent coach .... ;)....anyway......as long as I can remember it.....JC would run their laps......stretch.......warm the arms up......then we would separate......the top 18....and sometimes less would stay up on the field....and the dozen or so others would go the cages to hit hit hit and hit some more.   That is what would make them better........once the season got going......we only had so many hours a week we were allowed to practice by the AAA.....and if the other 12 were involved with every phase of the practice.......we would not be working the top 18 enough.......when Coach Bolen and Coach Hux were in charge....the practices were very structured.    Fundamentals were touched on EVERY day......live BP........and infield practice till it was done right.     Between the 2 coaches...."Bolen and Hux" there were over 700 victories.......6 state titles.....3 rup finishes.....and over 20 semifinal appearances........Coach Bolen was 385-63 as a head coach with 4 state titles.  He may have won another one in 1986 if he had not died on the field during the first round of the state tourney.    Coach Hammett is a coach Bolen disciple.........I personally played 3 years for Joe Paul at the airport.....and he never played favorites......I don't see it in his Character........it would suprise me more than if the sun didn't rise tomorrow if he was doing that.    Coaches Hux and Bolen did it the right way........with class.....integrity.......and knowledge of the game in all phases........Coach Bolen was named Arkansas High School coach of the year 5 times.....and Coach Hux twice.........Joe Paul played for both of the these men.........I just don't see this being something that he could or better yet....would do.    If he was Coach Bolen would have already crawled out of that grave that is about 40 yards from home plate and had a long talk with the man ;)     Give Joe Paul time.......he will get it back to where it used to be.....I have no doubt.     We have just been kinda thin on the mound the last couple of years....
That is how practice should be. It shouldn't be about teenagers whining because they didn't get to do what the other kids did that day. Earn your spot.

Earn your spot would have been a novel idea on the '06 Dragon baseball team.  I don't have any problem with freshmen playing varsity.  I've seen some good ones.  Let's just say some freshmen that year had a little history with the new coach and they were fast-tracked to varsity.  They were good players with potential, but don't know that an objective coach would have thought they were varsity-quality freshmen. 



I didn't mean to restart an old argument, just wanted to let folks know about the meeting Monday (2/4/08 - 6:30 pm) to develop plans to raise money for a replacement field house.  I'd think anybody who has seen the current facility would agree it's overdue for replacement.

Geaux Dragons!  Good luck with the field house project.

Sounds like a good start.

Would guess one of the schools referenced with new facilities was Mt. Ida.  I didn't go in the fieldhouse there but the outside was quite impressive.  The concession stand/restrooms were nice also.   Any Lions out there got any pointers on how ya'll managed to raise construction funds?

Post by: footballfan on February 05, 2008, 03:11:19 pm
Just a little on the Mount Ida facility. Apparently the initial "seed money" came from a very wealthy individual. Someone from that district might elaborate. The fieldhouse in Junction is a disaster. Can't believe the school admin. and board are so numb on this. It's really in no shape for students, especially those who will spend 5-6 days a week over there.

the top two in each event at districts qualify for state. You can also qualify if your time during the year at a sanctioned meet is in the top 2. The sprinter from Hermitage finished out of the top two in the 200 districts, but his time during the year was good enough to qualify.

Although the Bears lost to Carolina (9-14), Kevin Payne had six solo tackles, an assist, and participated in an interception (he deflected the pass and a teammate caught it).

Ok, I got a little bored watching the Astros getting hosed out of a home game in Milwaukee against the Cubs so I did a little number crunching.  Saw in another thread a reference to the 2003 team's defensive efforts.  Here are the last 10 years.  (By the way Zambrano (spl?) has a no-hitter thru 8)

That would be a good one. 

Remember, the '99 team gave up 70 of their 126 points allowed all year in one game to eventual state champion and pass happy Malzhan's (spl) Shiloh Christian.  Their average points allowed per game going into that game was only 5.09.  Take the 64 they scored against SC out of the mix and their points scored per game prior to the SC game was still 52.82.

Didn't see many of the '99 games.  Did watch most of the '03 games.  It was amazing watching that group dominate that year.  Was fun going to WMS and realizing after the 1st quarter the Barton game was going to be just like almost all the games that year.  The Rison semi-final game was the closest game that year.  Lafayette County put up a good fight too.  The McKinnon to McKinnon slant pass did come in handy in '03.   Did the '99 team have any pass game to speak of?

The 99 team didn't have to pass.  Marcus Godfrey, Jamario Easter, Kevin Payne, Lorenzo Lee, Corey Hurst, Lamon Creer, all in the backfield behind the biggest most dominating offensive line to come through JC.  Brandon Bovee and Robert Wages were each in the 6'-6'2" 300lb range, then you had Joel Barton and Mario Carter that were 250 plus.  The only small guy on the line was Ryan Hanry at center.  That 99 O-Line vs 03 or 08 D-Line would be fun to watch.  If the 99 O-Line had to face Devin Ball and Grantel Kennedy at the ends, and Big Baby at nose, I'm giving the advantage to the 08 D-Line.  If Grantel is at safety and Devin is at LB, advantage goes to O-Line.  No way on Gods green Earth that Ryan Hanry blocks Big Baby without the help of his guards.  If the tackles have to try to match the speed and power of Kennedy and Ball one on one, I think the defense wins.  Grantel and Devin would neutralize the sweep with Marcus by stretching it out to the sidelines, and Big Baby shuts down the inside running lanes.

The family has kind of kept it quiet. He has been sick since the end of March. Mr. Jeff Thurlkill is the one that howls like a wolf. If you know Mr. Jeff you would know that he is the kids favorite. He looks a lot like Santa Clause the overalls and everything and on top of that the kids often ask him to teach them how to howl. THis season there has been NO howling. Jacob Thurlkill the 16 year old Junior has took this very well. He doesn't want it to effect anything. He still gives his 150%. HE is just really small but he has one of the biggest hearts I have ever seen. I recall one of the Coachs commenting that, "He will do anything you ask him to do.". HE also has a sister Amanda who is a senior. These two dont like the attention or change from this. They havent had a "normal" life in a while. They just try to go about their business like they should. Out of a crowd, you would never pick Amanda or Jacob out as children with any saddness in their lives. These two are very down to earth happy go lucky kids. From what I have seen, they are great kids with good heads on their shoulders. Its just a shame that they have to go through this being so young.

This is Jacob and Amanda Thurlkill on Homecoming. Sadly, their Daddy Jeff Thurlkill wasn't able to walk her. Jacob walked his older sister in his football uniform before the game began. (She couldn't choose between her 2 grandfathers or her 2 uncles.) Jacob respresented their father. The sight was tear jerking yet powerful. They both had brave and happy faces on.

is it true that junction city counts only the students from arkansas and not the ones that pay from LA when it comes to their classification.

No.

Good answer D1 but hope you don't mind me elaborating.

All students have always been counted for athletic classification. 

There is both a Junction City, Louisiana and a Junction City, Arkansas.  Stateline Road divides the two at the one stop light both towns share.  The post office and school are in Arkansas.  The fire department is in Louisiana.  There is no school in Junction City, Louisiana so there is no picking or choosing or recruiting. 

Half the school district would be pretty standard.  If you drew a circle around the school with an 8-9 mile radius you'd roughly have the district. The north half of the circle is in Arkansas and those kids are obviously in the district and attend JC. 

Where it gets odd is that the southwest quarter of that circle is in Claiborne Parish and those kids go to JC.  Their nearest Louisiana school in Claiborne Parish is in Summerfield about 10-12 miles from that stop light I mentioned.  Claiborne Parish has decided it's in those kids' best interest (and the Parish's best interest) to allow the kids to go to JC.  I believe Claiborne Parish provides some buses and pays the salaries of some of the JC teachers.

The kids in the southeast quarter of that circle are in Union Parish.  Even though some of those kids are less than 12 blocks or so from the JC school, Union Parish does not allow them to attend JC.  These kids have to go 10-12 miles or more down the road to Louisiana schools in Union Parish.

Union Parish did at one time allow their kids to go to JC but that changed over 10 years ago when a funding issue came up.  The withdrawal of the Union Parish kids is the primary reason JC stayed in the lowest football classification when the schools they used to play with like Fordyce, Nashville, Prescott, etc. went to the larger class.

Here's an El Dorado New Times article that details JC's student base:  CLICK HERE (http://www.emailthis.clickability.com/et/emailThis?clickMap=viewThis&etMailToID=252422020)

Sorry to be so long winded but someone seems to ask this type question every year.  JC is one of the most scrutinized public schools in the entire state.  The administration has done everthing needed to document the enrollment status of their kids and the school should have one of the cleanest programs in the country.

Hammett doesn't play favorites to nobody... he may be the best coach in the school and even conference. 

Why pass when you dont have to??


Dragon baseball  has certainly slipped into mediocrity and the "Powers That be" know it.  It is a shame when your best baseball players will not go out for the team.  I also think there may be some what of a effort to cover this up. I have noticed all year that the Dragon record was mentioned maybe twice in all the articles in the El Dorado paper. At the same time, it seemed every other school mentioned in the paper had its record listed. Then when JC upset two top seeds in the playoffs, mysteriously the paper lists their record in those articles. Coincidence or what? I don't know.
  Word is from a friend of mine that Hammett plays favorites, and if he didn't their record would have been a lot better. I have also been told the same statement about some good ball players didn't come out for the team because of this. On a football note, If Carpenter would implement a good passing game, them boys down there would look like a bunch of pimps with all those rings on their fingers.

As far as Hammett, Yeah right.  ::)

As far as JC passing, the problem is not passing when your not forced.  The problem lies with being proficient  when you have to pass. I don't care how good you run the ball, there are times when your gonna have to pass or punt the ball. The lack of a decent passing game has hurt the Dragons in the last several playoff losses.

Need an idea for a Dragon fan stocking stuffer?

Junction City Dragon Football DVDs are on sale at the Junction City Pharmacy.

There are three DVDs available at this time.  They are the 2005, 2006 and 2007 seasons.  The price is $10.00 per DVD.  Other seasons will be ready in late January.

There are a limited number of the DVDs currently available.  Once these sellout, the next batch will be ready in early February.

The DVD footage is the same footage used by the coaches.

Money from the sale of the DVDs will go to the video department to purchase a new camera.

With last year's champion, Earle, now competing in the 3A, maybe Des Arc or JC can improve on their 2nd and 3rd place finishes from last year.  Maybe it will come down to the wire like another event involving these two teams did earlier this school year. ;D

From the 7/30 EDNT:

Dragons to start workouts today   

   JUNCTION CITY – The defending state champions will officially begin the 2009 football season with "county fair" both today and Friday, head coach David Carpenter said.
   The Dragons, who won the 2008 Class 2A State title, will practice at 8 a.m. today and Friday. Carpenter said the players will have two days of "county fair." When asked what the players could expect, the veteran coach said, "Lots of good running and jumping, hootin’ and hollerin’."
   The Dragons will practice twice daily next week at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The junior high team will practice at 11 a.m. each day next week. A week from today the Dragons will practice in pads for the first time.
   Junction is scheduled to scrimmage Class 3A Harmony Grove in August, then open the 2009 season against Class 3A Fountain Lake. That game is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 3, at Henderson State University, following a game between Bearden and Harmony Grove.

That's the odor from " Hornet Stinks"  posts from we couldn't Hackett last year but we will beat JC this year for the title on our way to being a dynasty!  ::)

I think he must have a son or nephew on the team, and has seen a few practices or been to the Team meeting and is all excited, but has no football background or posting background and doesn't realize his enthusiasm is coming across as CRAZY!   ;D

Well.....in the spirit of Scorpiux paying for the trophy to give to the winning team between JC and Bearden every year.....I just said the heck with it and went ahead and paid for the athletic facility myself.

There are a few conditions though......First it must be named after me......second it will have a giant mural of me painted on the outside....and last but not least at ALL home games that JC wins it will be said.....Once again Wilson wins it for the Dragons   ;D ;)

There are others on here who could provide better details.

I'm with you though, thought there was a problem using public money for a primarily football facility.  My guess is that by including a cheerleaders' locker room, softball and baseball practicing options the project met the standards for qualifying for tax dollar use.  Sounds good to me and should for anybody who has ever seen the current facilities.  Just hope the current weight room isn't too far gone and re-roofing that building works out alright.

well jessieville did just as good football champions, basketball boys & girls state runner up, baseball boys quaterfinalist, track third in the state meet without Noles, Fort, Terwigiller, AN Burk with a hurt ankle, girls track third with two seniors.
So i think jessieville did just as good in sports as jc an any other school in the state.

J'ville and JC definitely had the two best 2A overall athletic programs for 2006-2007.  Congratulations to both programs.

No disrespect to the track and field folks, or the golfers, or the weight lifters, or the ladies, etc.; but Dragon I asked about the "big three" (football, baseball, boys basketball).

1) Football:  J'ville gets 1 point win in state championship over JC.  Advantage J'ville.

2) Boys Basketball:  JC gets mercy rule win in state championship over J'ville.  Everything even.

3) Baseball:  J'ville reaches elite eight.  JC reaches final four.  Advantage JC.


To get back to Dragon I's original question, previously 2A football powers Shiloh Christian and Rison have historically not had strong baseball programs.  Barton '96-'97 did final four football and baseball but don't know about their basketball program.  I don't know if any school in any class would have final four-ed in football, baseball, and boys basketball in the same school year.  My guess would be maybe Nashville, Warren, Texarkana, Pine Bluff, Little Rock Central or Fort Smith Southside if any.

Barton has been historically weak in Basketball.

Wilson, thought you were going to install astroplay when those lottery numbers fell right. ;)

How about you fund this.  I've always liked the idea of an 10 foot or so dragon near the scoreboard in the north end zone.  After every touchdown:  its eyes flash red, smoke comes out its nostrils and flames shoot out of its mouth.

We could call it Wilson. ;D

I really thought about the dragon statue and it was a tough decision not to have one put in.......In the end I just thought that the Dragon would take attention away from where it should be when folks go to watch the boys play........and that would be the 20 foot bronze statue of myself between the endzone and athletic facility.    I did decide to try to meet folks in the middle.....when JC scores Enter sandman will be played out of the speakers mounted at the base of my statue and fireworks will shoot out of my fingertips (which will at all times be facing up in the universal sign for touchdown!)

No kool aide or Goose here Scorpiux.......Just taking credit for my philanthropic ways! ;D

From Wilson's description of his pending statue, I thought Notre Dame put a picture of Wilson on that building. :o

Hey, JC is a good set of initials to have though. ;D

No doubt about divine intervention in that WMS game.  Play that one over 10 times from the point Des Arc went for the fourth down before the final Dragon drive and I'd bet Des Arc would win most of them.  But all it took was one time and everything fell just right. ;D


Kind of reminds me of the Bobby Bare song: 

Drop-kick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life,
End over end, neither left nor to right.
Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights
Drop-kick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life.

Make me, Oh make me, Lord, more than I am
Make me a part of your master game plan
Free of the earthly tempestions below
I've got the will, Lord, if you've got the toe.

Bring on the brothers who've gone on before
Bring on the sisters who've knocked on your door.
Bring on those sainted relations of mine
And put them up front in the offensive line.

A lowly benchwarmer I'm contented to be
Until the time that you have need of me
Flash on the big scoreboard that shines up on high
The big Superbowl 'way up in the sky

Feature in the Monday EDNT about the 2009 football team:  CLICK HERE (http://www.emailthis.clickability.com/et/emailThis?clickMap=viewThis&etMailToID=1647532354)

Congratulations to Jacob on receiving the Burlsworth award.

As noted in the feature, "According to the official website, "Each year every high school football program in Arkansas nominates one player from their team to receive the Brandon Burlsworth award. This player should be of good moral character and demonstrate a desire to excel in the class room. This award recognizes the student athlete who puts their team first and is not looking to just draw attention to themselves. ..."

As I understand it, some schools give out Burlsworth awards each year as part of their awards program.  Junction City does not participate in this award.  The particular award Jacob won was was different from the "every school" award. 

The award given in the championship game is voted on by a group of invited coaches and others in the press box who were on hand to watch the championship game.  The Burlsworth site was recently updated.  The older site better defined the two award types and said this about the particular award given in the championship game:  "The award is based on performance during the game, character and a willingness to put the team first.  The award is given to a player from each team."  This can still be seen if you click on the year links on the page below.  The previous site also had pictures of recipients from the championship games.

Previous winners from Junction City were:

2008 - Byran Jones
2006 - Shay Barnette
2003 - Charlie Honza

Congratulations to all JC recipients and others who have been so recognized in their school's title game(s).

By TONY BURNS
Sports Editor
Junction City football coach David Carpenter sat with Alan Turner last week, looking at game-film from the Dragons’ championship season. Turner was putting together a highlight film to send to college coaches. Looking back at some of his past games brought back pleasant memories of plays long-since forgotten.
“Yeah, some plays I didn’t remember until I saw them,” said Turner with a smile. “It looked all right.”
As great as some of his exploits were, it’s still understandable how they could be forgotten. With his speed, they happened so fast, they were often over before you realized what happened.
“You really forget through the year how many 65 (yard) plus runs the young man has had until you start watching,” said Carpenter.
A blur on the field, perhaps a slow-motion or rewind button is the only way to appreciate what Turner did this season. His numbers alone certainly don’t provide a true measure of his accomplishments.
The senior rushed for 1,059 yards and 12 touchdowns - pedestrian numbers for a back drawing interest from the likes of Auburn and Ole Miss. But, the bulk of his statistics were compiled during the first half of games where the Dragons outscored their opponents 305-26.
“When we blow teams out, I knew I wasn’t going to get to carry the ball that much anyway but as long as we’re winning, I don’t care,” said Turner, who said he doesn’t bother explaining his statistics to others. “Most of them know that we have blowouts and I usually don’t play that much.”
Turner averaged an eye-popping 10.28 yards per carry and an incredible 48.1 yards per kick return. Overall, he averaged 12.8 yards every time he touched the football.
“He’s definitely one of the good running backs that’s come through here,” said Carpenter. “He hasn’t had as many yards as a lot of our other running backs, but in the regular season he didn’t have but 55 carries the whole 9-game season. You break down 55 totes in nine games, that’s not many carries. In one ball game, he had three touchdowns and never carried the ball one time on offense. He had a kickoff return, an interception return and a punt return and he didn’t even go out on offense.”
In addition to Turner’s 12 rushing touchdowns, he returned both kickoffs he touched for touchdowns and one of his four punt returns for another score.
Not bad considering his best position might be defense. As a run-stuffing strong safety, he recorded 67.5 tackles with seven interceptions. He returned two of the interceptions for touchdowns.
“A lot of (colleges) are looking at him as the strong safety,” said Carpenter. “We sent game films to Auburn and Ole Miss and they want some highlight films to look at to get a quick overview. Of course Ouachita, SAU, Arkansas Tech and (Arkansas State) are all looking. I won’t know exactly until next week.”
Turner feels comfortable on either side of the ball at both running back or safety.
“It really don’t matter, I like both of them. Wherever they put me, I’ll play,” said Turner, who then added, “I like strong safety. I like to hit.”
Also a standout in basketball and track and field, Turner has moved from sport-to-sport-to-sport throughout his career. After Junction City won the state football championship on Saturday, he was on the basketball court before his football gear was even put away.
“They gave me the weekend off and then Monday I started practicing basketball,” said Turner, who said the thought of focusing on one sport did enter his mind.
“I did when I was younger but it doesn’t really matter because you’re still going to lift,” he said. “I just like playing sports. I always knew football was my number-one sport. I just like playing all of them.”
Turner is the two-time defending 2A state champion in the 200 meters and was third in state in the 100. He is the conference champion in both the 100 and 200. The physicality is what drove him to football.
“I like contact. When we were younger, we would always play tackle football when we were in like the second and third grade,” he said.
Turner’s speed might be his most talked-about attribute, however. His coach said he’s also shown leadership, especially as a senior.
“Very talented young man - he enjoys not just playing the game but trying to learn the game, which makes a difference because when we were trying to get different coverages going on back there, he would definitely get to understand where everybody was. He would make sure he had his area covered,” said Carpenter.
“He was very valuable on both sides. He’s one of those guys, when he graduates you’re losing about five people because of all the different things he did for us.”
Although soft-spoken, Turner carries himself with an air of confidence. When a photographer showed up in Junction City, it was Turner who found an assistant coach to open up the fieldhouse and get the jerseys. It was Turner who called teammate Byran Jones to the fieldhouse for the photo session. It was Turner who did all of this while in the middle of basketball practice.
“One of the other things about him is the classroom. He’s a good student,” said Carpenter. “He’s eligible to go right on into college. He’s got over a three-point G.P.A. He works just as hard in the classroom if not harder than he does in his athletics. Right now, we finished up football the other night and now he’s over in basketball. As soon as we get through with that he goes into track. To do all that and still maintain the high grade point average he does is super.”
Turner is turning his attention to recruiting. He plans to visit Ole Miss, Auburn and OBU with more visits pending.
“I want to look at the surroundings and how the coaches treat you,” he said.
He’s also focused on the upcoming basketball season, which tips off soon for the Dragons. He still managed a quick second to pause and reflect on Junction City’s back-to-back state championships in football.
“After the first one we won, all the juniors who were becoming seniors talked about ‘we gotta win next year’,” said Turner. “If we didn’t win, it was going to be a failure to the season because of what we did the year before. I thought last year would be sweeter but I believe this year was, just because we had a little setback earlier during the season. Then to come back and win in the state championship and to go back-to-back, it was pretty special.”

Anybody out there see the January 1 front page of the EDNT sport section?

Somebody named Carter Bryant, who was identified as a "former standout in football and soccer at El Dorado High School," wrote a piece titled "Murphy deserves News-Times Player of the Year."

The thing went beyond the examples that have been referenced already in this thread about Jones and Turner.  The other nominees (Murphy, Landsdell and Midyett) have already recieved features like Jones and Turner had.  Bryant's feature read like it should have been in the Letters to the Editor section.  Anybody know if the other nominees for the award will receive "hugger" recommendations?

Don't think that will happen dog hope I'm wrong. If not it sure is a bias. Another front page article in the sport section isn't fair unless there going to feature all of the players. Jones winning MVP in the WMS, and playing both ways really says it all......................... 8)

He single-handedly took over the title game against Bearden in the 4th quarter....

Just to make sure nobody gets the wrong impression, my earlier post was in no way meant to insinuate Murphy is not a deserving candidate for the award.  I was just questioning the extra press he appears at this point to be receiving.

Hey GCF, I started a thread in General Sports about the 2009 Landers award.  Don't know if you opened it or not, but Murphy is a candidate for that award also.  KATV is asking for votes from the public on their site and the link in the thread will take you there.

Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: cuz on January 01, 2010, 11:58:07 am
All the players mentioned are definitely deserving or they wouldn't of been nominated.but like GCF said and I agree Byran basically shut down Bearden's running game especially in the last quarter and to be MVP twice says a lot more people agree with that than us.................. 8)

Let's see:

1)  3 time all-state selection,
2)  2 time state championship MVP,
3)  Burlsworth Award winner in 2008 championship game,
4)  State Farm 2A defensive player of the year,
5)  Two way position player (Has also kicked),
6)  Second highest rated college prospect in the state of Arkansas,
7)  Could be the most recruited football player to ever come out of Union County (not sure about that one but thought I'd take a chance ;D ).


I would respectively submit the following for publication:

   "Four coaches from the Arkansas Razorbacks football team came courting in Junction City on Wednesday, spending part of the day visiting with senior defensive lineman Byran Jones.

    Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino used his one allowed visit to meet with Jones, according to Dragons’ head coach and athletic director David Carpenter. Head coaches are allowed just one visit at a high school while assistant coaches can visit recruits more often.

    Joining Petrino in Junction Wednesday were recruiter and assistant coach Tim Horton, defensive tackles coach Bobby Allen and newly hired assistant Steve Caldwell......"

Actually, it was Bob Petrino, Tim Horton,Bobby Allen, and Steve Caldwell. They came to see Byran and Allen. They both had just got back from Auburn. Arkansas has better get after it if they want Byran, his visit to the campus must be successful or they want have a chance, also he would like to go with Allan along. That would be a + for Arkansas as he would benefit them either way OFF. OR DEF...........

Maybe LR Parkview. Don't they have Fisher and a guy on the practice squad in the NFL?
Either way, it is truly remarkable.

Its a freak thing for a school JC's size.    Just have had a very good run of athletes in the last dozen of so years.

ESPN analyst Jay Williams said the other day that he was a lottery pick and more than likely in the first 5 or 6 if he comes out.......you have to see who all comes out though and what players from Europe and Asia may be in the draft.   

Whats more crazy is there are 2 or 3 guys from JC that could have or still been in MLB if things had worked out differently.     Lots of good kids have come through that school.

I knew he had announced.....I was just saying the Jay Williams was saying the other day that if he came out he was more than likely a top 5 pick.     I really think his game is more suited to the NBA than NCAA.......not saying he is going to blow up and be an instant success when he gets there.  (although it would not suprise me)......just saying that once the game slows down for him in the NBA his game will flourish there.     Here is a thought bleu.......If he is a lottery pick.....guess who more than likely is going to be in the lottery.......The New Orleans Hornets........It seems every team that wins/makes a run at the NBA title has to have a 1-2 combo.    Jordan/Pippen.......Shaq/Kobe........Shaq/D Wade........Kobe/Gasol........Parker/Duncan.....Billups/Hamilton............If he goes to New Orleans can you imagine what a JA/CP-3 combo would be like once James gets his NBA legs?     Plus ......I'm kinda partial to the big easy.  ;)

Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: Wilson on March 24, 2010, 07:48:07 am
That is what I would call a head scratcher if you ask me.    Why would New Orleans take ANOTHER point guard when they have the best PG in the game......plus a rookie in Darren Collison who lit it up pretty good when CP3 was out with an injury.    What does he think?.....that the hornets want to have a 3 point guard offense?     With a scorer needed to go along with CP3 JA makes the best sense.    The thing is.....if the Hornets make the lottery they could still end up with a pick in the top three......thats why its called a lottery.....lol.....nobody knows who gets what until the envelopes are opend and the team card shown.


and I noticed that the guys evaluation was made way back after game 10 this year in early Dec......I am thinking that JA's stock is a good bit higher now than back then.

What I know about the NBA wouldn't fill a very small bucket, but that lottery thing kind of looks like it makes any early mock draft a crap shoot.

Are the last regular season games in mid-April?  How many teams participate in the lottery?  I seem to rember some media folks cracking on the NBA about how many teams make the playoffs.  Could a lottery team make the playoffs?

Pardon my ignorance on professional basketball.  I try to look every once and awhile about how Paul Milsap does but that's about the extent of my keeping up with the league.

Hopefully, JA will give me one more player to keep up with. ;D

Post by: Wilson on March 24, 2010, 07:28:21 pm
The teams that do not make the playoffs are in the lottery.    The worse your record is the more chances you have to get a higher pick.   Think of it as a raffle like you see at a fundraiser.    They have whats called a "squirrel" cage that turns and so many tickets are put in.   You draw a ticket and announce the number.    Its kinda like that but the teams with the worst records have more cards with their names in it.    For instance the team with the worst record my have 15 with their name....and the last team out of the playoffs may only have one with their name on it.     The problem I have with that way of determining a draft order is you could still end up with the team that almost made the playoffs with the #1 pick and the team that only won 10 games all year with like a #7 or worse pick.     Its happend before.     I'm kinda like you bleu.....I don't pay much attention to the NBA.....I do once April rolls around and the playoffs start.....but then only for good matchups.   I used to watch the Mavs when Nelly and then Avery Johnson coached them because it was pretty much fast break basketball from start to finish.    I like keeping up with Joe Johnson (former Razorback who plays in Atlanta)......I keep up with Lebron .....well....because he is Lebron.    Same with Kobe.....they are both kind of like Jordan in that on any given night they may do something that nobody has ever seen before.   Barring injury I think JA will turn into a VERY good pro.......at this time I don't know what his ceiling is.   He could very well be putting  up Kevin Durrant numbers by his 2nd or 3rd year........Like I already said.....I think his game translates better to the NBA then it does to the NCAA.

Post by: Wilson on March 24, 2010, 08:11:32 pm
The refs let the players "play"    They dont try to control the game as much as NCAA refs do.    The way the defenses are set up its more of a wide open game then in the NCAA.   I know that zone defenses are now permited in the pros these days.....but its not a true zone like you see in the NCAA.    The 3 point line being further back alows more open space for a player like JA to create and have more lanes to the basket.    Bigs will stick with bigs more times than not when a center or PF moves away from the basket/lane and alow more room to cut to the hoop.    It lets play makers create......thats why guys like Kevin Durrant, Joe Johnson and Roy from Portland seem to be better at the pro level then they did at the college level.     Its the same game .....but played differently.     Players like JA make the transition easier (or better said quicker.....cause nothing is easy when you move up levels)........but they make the transition quicker then someone like Paul Millsapp does 9 times out of 10.

Thanks for the lottery info.  I was somwhat familiar with the lottery process, but didn't know it was composed of all non-playoff teams.  That could mean the teams would be known earlier than season's end.  With the season ending in about 3 weeks, have all the playoff spots been locked up yet?

Got to looking around and the math part is describe pretty well here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_Draft_Lottery

I know wikipedia can sometimes be suspect, but are there still 14 non-playoff teams?  If so, the mock draft I linked to earlier had JA as a low lottery pick.  ;D 

Hope June 24 is a red-letter day for JA.  The Big Mo is mentioned in this link:

Ok, here's my last shot!

We all know the softest players play defense, and with this new indoor practice facility, maybe the Dragon softies can practice inside so they don't have to get wet and can now concentrate on playing some defense instead of moaning about the rain making their jocks soggy!

I'm done... It's the offseason ....Good luck guys...Sounds like fun times ahead!

Sounds like the Dragons won the 2A and may have won the overall again.  Looks like they overcame the loss of poo-man.

Fountain Lake

As far as I know, there's just one building. 

I'm guessing the paper shot is a little older and taken from the current field house point of view.  If that's right, that angle doesn't give the best perspective on the size of this thing from eave to eave. 

I took my second picture from the south endzone looking north.  There are a couple of doors on the south facing wall that I don't see paper's shot.  I'm guessing they were added later. 

In driving south on 167, I can see a couple of exhaust vents on the north end of the building that aren't seen in any of the four pictures.

My first picture with just the steel framework structure was from the parking lot of the field house.  That's probably closest to the ange the paper used.  I never even got out of the car for the first one I took but didn't notice two buildings.

I was talking about the picture that was taken at "James Anderson day" which shows pretty much the whole structure.    Then to look at the pic in the paper today the shapes are nothing alike blue......The apex on the roof is pointed in one.....and flat in the other.   Plus it looks to be about 50 feet wide by 150 feet long.....that's not much room to do any sort of practice in.     I keep looking at the 2 pics trying figure out what the deal is.

I think the paper's photo is just a bad angle looking up a little hill.  Even the NFL uses multiple angles before they rule on a replay call. ;)

The original article stated the building would be 20,000 square feet.  If actually square, that would be about 141' X 141'.  It's probably longer down the ridge than eave to eave and closer to 100' X 200' or 120' X 167'.  That should be enough room for practicing those blast and trap plays. ;D

Yeah......I'm not sure if they will have enough room for all of that........I dont really think they are going to have to put any padding on the beams for fear of WR's running into them  ;)

Its still kinda strange looking......Its bothering me so much I might just have to drive up there and lay eyes on it myself......just bugging the mess out of me......

Coach AL BOLEN was the reason baseball got JC on the map, as you say, and JC hasn't had a coach remotely of his caliber since his passing. He motivated the kids and pursued baseball 12 months out of the year and he did this for the kids and the Love of the Game. Carpenter has done the same in football and that's why baseball has taken a back seat but don't think JC is down they will always be contenders......... 8)

Talked to Coach Carpenter at the semi-finals of the Softball State Tour. and heard most of what was in the write-up, he pointed out to Freshman that were pretty big old boys he was expecting to step up on the line. With 33 out right now I expect it to be more come fall. He seemed very positive about the team even though their young. I think he was pleasantly suprised at the large turn out of the softball games. Their was quite a crowd there for the semi's........ :D

Anybody out there see the January 1 front page of the EDNT sport section?

Somebody named Carter Bryant, who was identified as a "former standout in football and soccer at El Dorado High School," wrote a piece titled "Murphy deserves News-Times Player of the Year."

The thing went beyond the examples that have been referenced already in this thread about Jones and Turner.  The other nominees (Murphy, Landsdell and Midyett) have already recieved features like Jones and Turner had.  Bryant's feature read like it should have been in the Letters to the Editor section.  Anybody know if the other nominees for the award will receive "hugger" recommendations?

Jones takes the football award:  CLICK HERE (http://epaper.wehco.com/Repository/ml.asp?Issue=ElDNTimes/2010/05/28&ID=Ar01100&Mode=Gif)

Murphy takes the spring sport award: CLICK HERE (http://epaper.wehco.com/Repository/ml.asp?Issue=ElDNTimes/2010/05/28&ID=Ar01004&Mode=Gif)

(Not sure what more Jones could have done in the shot put.  He finished his high school career as a four-time state champion.)

Muphy takes Male Scholar Athlete award and Jacob Midyett is Athlete of the Year.



Anyway, congratulations to all.

Yea, don't ya just hate when that happens. :'(  ;)

But those two nine-win teams did have three playoff wins each and fell to eventual state champions in the semi-finals. ;D

(http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/2152/winloss.jpg) (http://img651.imageshack.us/i/winloss.jpg/)

Seriously though, this year's team will face some challenges that may not have been faced before in this run.  There is only one starter returning from last year's team.  The good news though is the backups did get a lot of playing time but, even with that, the senior class is small in number.  The team will have to have a second running back step up.  Larry is good but he can't carry the ball all the time.  Carpenter likes to have at least a two-barreled attack:  Hoof/Easter, Cook/Kennedy, Turner/Ross.  Who, if anyone, will step up?   The good news is there are a few who are qualified to try.

Only time will tell and there ain't nothing like having your team involved in high school football after Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the kind words and good luck up there in that big school group.

Oh, one more stat.  You know that down here in the little school group, it usually takes five playoff wins to take the title.  From 2000 thru 2009, JC played 40 playoff games (the equivalent of 4 extra regular seasons) and was 33-7.  The 2006 seniors were involved in the most of those games, 18, going 15-3.  The 2009 seniors had had the fewest losses, going 15-2.

Oh, one more stat.  You know that down here in the little school group, it usually takes five playoff wins to take the title.  From 2000 thru 2009, JC played 40 playoff games (the equivilant of 4 extra regular seasons) and was 33-7.  The 2006 seniors were involved in the most of those games, 18, going 15-3.  The 2009 seniors had had the fewest losses, going 15-2.

All I've been typing is history.  The players who will be seniors on the 2010 team will have a chance to post a 16-1 playoff record.  But that is yet to be determined.............

Anybody know which conferences get the byes in 2010?

The seniors on the '09 team were involved in three trips to WMS, got the big prize twice and that's what matters.  Would have been nice if they could have defended the lair and won district in '09; and dang that '08 Des Arc game had to have had some divine intervention.

That final drive against Des Arc may be the most clutch drive I've ever seen at any level of football....no timeouts and a team not known for passing spreading the field and chunking it all over the place. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
It was a textbook case of a team finding a way to win....

Oh, the field goal unit was clutch too. You KNOW they had worked on that scenario in practice numerous times.

Practice is practice and what JC did is called stepping up and winning. Something they're good at. By intervention I would say this, JC didnot play their best ball in that ball game but in the end they did win........ 8)

No disrespect against your Eagles there pick, but JC didn't play like I'd seen them play all year, too many plays that just didn't get started. Could've been your def. but it seemed to me the little speed demon playing QB gave them the most trouble...

In the state for sure without a doubt on the field that nite. And yes our little q.b. And his brother who played noseguard at 165. Gave yal fits. That was the greatest game i've ever witnessed and it still causes a lump in my throat to know that d.a. Was only a few secounds away from doin what NO ONE outside of d.a. Thought could be done.

You're welcome.  Missed the game too; was at a Chamber of Commerce get together. 

Saw more than a few names in the article that Jerry hasn't called out on the PA too many times.  With only 8 seniors, it's an opportunity for the underclassmen to step up.  Should be an interesting year. 

Sounded from the article that Coach Carpenter is up and around.  That's good to see.

If that's a correct score and we assume the game was simulated like a regular lengthed game...sounds like JC was able to isolate the big guys up front of HG, would that be right?  I totally expected a lower score than that for JC, and thought it would be much closer...maybe even a HG win.  Conditioning probably did play a factor in it.

Did kind of sound like something we're used to hearing:

Multiple running backs making big plays.
Susceptibility to the big pass.
Smaller JC linemen on both sides wearing out the big guys on the other team.  (Don't ya just love it when those big ol' boys spend a good part of the game with their hands on their knees or flat on the ground watching the back of a Dragon player as the Dragon's number gets smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller...........) ;D

Talked to one of JC coaches and he said Alan may play on special teams and is really putting in some hits at Safety. He also said he was clocked at 4.3 in practice.......... ;)

This is just my thought on the matter which means nothing whatsoever, but I'm hoping Alan red shirts.  I know he wants to play right away, but being able to play a 5th year at the top of an athlete's game (prob starting/getting plenty of PT on defense) instead of their true freshman year (prob only playing special teams) almost always pays off more in the end for the player.  I know I wish I had. ;)

Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: gatecrasher on September 05, 2010, 10:59:50 am
IR is for those who have sustained season-ending injuries....

If the player is coming back (i.e. Minnesota WR Sidney Rice....out until at least week 8), and the team wants to free up his spot until he can return, he's put on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Teams have recently started doing that. In the past, if a player was hurt, you just signed someone else...didn't have to put someone on the PUP list, or at least I didn't hear about it.  I don't know if there's a new rule in place or what.

Congratulation to the Dragon junior high football team.  Not only did they finish the season undefeated with a perfect record of 7-0 to take the disrict title, the defense was also perfect by not allowing any opponent to score.  I understand they outscored their opponents 254-0

Way to Geaux Dragons!

Saw in the paper Sunday that Vince Holyfield was inducted into the Southern Arkansas University Sports Hall of Fame as part of the 2010 class.

Holyfield was listed as being from Junction City.  He played baseball at SAU from 1983 through 1985.  He was a NAIA All American as well as an All Conference player.  He was drafted in 1985 by the Philadelphia Phillies in the third round as the #70 overall pick.  Up until Hayden Simpson's being drafted this year, Holyfield held the distinction of having been the SAU player drafted highest in a regular MLB draft.   Holyfield hit .400 as a Mulerider freshman and helped take the team to a number of championships while at SAU.

Congratulations.

I going to have to yield to Wilson or someone else, but would Holyfield have played on either or both of the '80 and '81 Dragon state baseball championship teams?

Junction City’s Jones earns accolade

   FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team had four members named to the SEC All-Freshman Team, as voted by the conference’s coaches, it was announced Thursday.
   Offensive guard Alvin Bailey, center Travis Swanson, kicker Zach Hocker and defensive tackle Byran Jones were named among the best freshmen in the SEC at their position.
   .............Jones appeared in 10 games with five starts. He was Arkansas’ starting nose guard in all four October games, as well as the regular-season finale against No. 6 LSU.
   The Junction City, Ark., native  made an immediate impact, registering his season-high of five tackles in the Razorbacks’ season opening victory against Tennessee Tech. His season total of 23 tackles, which includes one full tackle for a loss, ranks fifth among UA’s defensive linemen............

She was a loyal supporter of Junction City football as a cheerleader for 7 years, a Homecoming Queen and finally Miss JCHS.

From the EDNT:

"A two-vehicle accident on U.S. 167 north of Hampton Sunday claimed the life of Kellee Murphree, who was on her way to Little Rock for training at her new job with the Arkansas Crime Information Center, according to former Sheriff Ken Jones. Murphree worked as Jones’ secretary before taking her new job. Jones said he came to the sheriff’s office in 1995 and Jones did the same a year later...........According to the Arkansas State Police in Warren, Murphree was involved in a two-vehicle accident along with an 18-wheeler. The crash happened at 12:39 p.m. Sunday at mile marker 11 north of Hampton. Murphree was taken to the Dallas County Medical Center in Fordyce, where she died. The driver of the truck also was taken to DCMC. A dispatcher said a state trooper was working another accident when he was notified of the two-vehicle crash north of Hampton."

Anderson was first assigned on Jan. 26. He played two games with the Toros, averaging 14.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.0 minutes. Anderson has appeared in nine games this season for the Spurs, averaging 5.2 points and 1.1 assists in 13.0 minutes.

The Spurs selected Anderson in the first round (20th overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft. The 2010 Big 12 Player of the Year, Anderson averaged 17.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 101 games in a three-year career at Oklahoma State. In his final season (2009-10), Anderson averaged 22.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists, and was named to the AP All-America Second Team. His career scoring average is the second highest in school history, and his 1,811 total points rank fourth.

Any idea where we might look for Larry to show up next year?

Good luck to him where ever that might be.

Bearden seems to have a football pipeline to Arkansas Baptist College.  Also noticed a couple of former Dragon baseball players (Dardin and Cook) on the ABC baseball roster.

They had a real good crowd.  I even won a '10 football playoff t-shirt that ended up with Mr. Hogue since Mr. Eckhoff was kind enough to give me the extra water bottle his family won.  I know a "former" Dragon who might get a kick out of the water bottle more than a '10 playoff t-shirt. ;)

Somebody had told me there were 30 young ladies on the softball team in '11.  Quite a challenge to keep that many involved.  I don't know how many seniors will be leaving, but with that kind of participation, good things could keep happening.

There aren't any more Beasleys at Foreman are there?
Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: cuz on May 25, 2011, 10:45:39 am
They should be alright next year losing 8 seniors with 6 being starters. They had some freshman that did good. Lowe, Glover, Cannon, are the only returning starters but the JV did good all year. I don't think there is another Beasely coming, but knowing Foreman I bet they have a quality pitcher ready......... ;D

Too early to have a 2011 roster up on the website yet, but noticed the Dragons had 7 seniors and 14 freshman last season.  If all last year's 9-11 graders can and do come back, they'll be a young team but will go from a 10th-11th-12th roster of 26 to one of 33.  Always good to break that 30 barrier in 2A.

I enjoyed that purple-gold game and was suprised at the size of Offensive line. The new kicker was fairly impressive, he made all the extra points and didn't look bad on the field goals. He hit 2 or 3 40 yd field goals in warm-ups. As for the rest of it, they looked pretty good splitting up the way they were. There were some nice pass plays and as for the back-field all I can say is speed and more speed............. 8)

Welcome back 'nator.

I was come and go at the game last night, but did see some good size out there.  Saw Tyler kick an XP.  Those have been occasional adventures in years past.  Still looks odd to me seeing a kid kick with his left foot.

Who were #40 and #64 for the jr high team?  Didn't see them play, but those two looked to be 6' 3" or better and I'm guessing they were 9th graders.  If they can play like they looked, that's a pair of twin towers who could come in handy come playoff time.

Thought it was a really good write-up and the def. shined. Even though the offense started slow was really proud at the multiple threats the dragons showed there, especially the passing game............
Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: dragonator on August 23, 2011, 01:18:28 pm
From what I saw last night, I guess I came away with a little different impression than did Cuz. Let me say, I was very proud of the Dragons. I thought they played hard and there were several brutal licks passed out last night. I hope the starting QB for HG is gonna be ok. I will agree with Cuz in that the defense was the shining star of the dragon performance last night. However, HG played a pretty much straight forward style offense. I just wonder how our young dragons are gonna do when we play a team that uses a lot of misdirection plays. Will our young players be disciplined enough to stay with their assignments? In my opinion, our offense looked pretty weak at times. We had a few decent runs but we also got tackled several times behind the line for big losses. I agree in that we have multiple backs that can carry the ball if the O'Line can give them a hole to run through. I was also pleased with the two TD passes we had but the other half a dozen or so pass attempts looked pretty awefull. Don't get me wrong, I was glad to see the Dragons open things up a bit more, but when the only two scores form the starting offense comes from the air and not from the ground, well lets just say it makes me a little nervous.  :o

Nator I don't think we're that far apart on our assesment of the dragons. As I stated and you agreed the def did look good. They are young but that went to the ball well and had a lot of speed when a assignment was mis-read to help overcome the error. I also think you agree that their is at least 4 running backs that could bust a play wide open at anytime. Now my main concern was the QB, the two that played the most both had a good game but I would of liked to see one a little bit more than the other. JC did show a passing game and even though they didn't complete as many as they should they did score two td's passing which is highly unusual for the dragons. If I recall correct there was 3 or 4 passes that were out right dropped that I hope was nerves. Overall I was a whole lot more impressed at the stage the dragons are at now than they were last year........ ;)

Noticed at last night's game there were almost 40 kids dressed out with one injured.  Got to looking at the roster and counted 39.  Great to see those numbers.

It is with heavy heart I post this.

The newborn son of Kevin and Katey Sehon lost his battle for life this afternoon.  He was born Friday at 24 weeks and weighted 1 lb 8 oz.

Katey's maiden name was Brewer and she was a Dragon cheerleader.  Her grandfather is the PA announcer for Dragon sporting events. 

Kevin or "Spanky" was a senior on the Dragon '04 state championship baseball team and '03 state championship football team.  He is currently coaching at Haynesville and his mother works at the Junction City school.

Prayers and condolences.

Let's sum it up this way JC didn't show up at all. Penalties amounted to almost the total yardage gained by all the backs. The secondary might as well stayed home and turnovers well we just want go there. Teams are supposed to improve not get worse and the young dragons looked terrible. Backsliding to the point of total frustration by all. If the Dragons want to compete they need to find the same team that played Rison cause that team didn't show up this week. I'm a Dragon supporter all the way but this game against Norphlet wasn't Dragon ball. The backs didn't put forth the effort of Junction City backs and the secondary watched as the pass receivers just run by them. A lot to work on if the Dragons are deserving of the ranking they have.......

Always room on the band wagon for folks who don't fall off easily. 

But that El Do team of yours has a pretty impressive WMS run going.  I'm not going to hold that created classification against them.  One of those 16 teams had to step up and lead the pack and a Union County team did.

After this season, JC's going to be graduating a softball player to a D-I program down 167.  Your little dragon have any pitching potential at some point in the future?

Makes you wonder if the success rate would have changed if the AAA had counted the Claiborne Parrish students which would have put JC in 3A for the last several cycles.

AAA is aware of all students for athletic classification purposes. 

ADE funding is based only on Arkansas students.

The loss of the Union Parish kids about 15 years ago and overall loss of students since then (mostly attributable to overall population loss in the county due to economy/employment losses) are what has kept JC from staying with the teams there were classified with about 15 years ago.

AAA is aware of all students for athletic classification purposes.

You sure about that? The AAA uses the numbers straight from ADE. The 144 that they have listed is exactly what you get if you add up the 3 year average of Arkansas only students.

It looks like an average of 10 a class from LA that aren't included in the count at all.

For the 2012-1014 cycle, adding 30 wouldn't matter.

In 2010-2012, it would have put JC within 1 student of the top of 2A. A small spike in one class could have made the difference.

In 2008-2010, adding 30 would have made JC bigger than a dozen schools in 3A.

Just out of curiosity, how many of the LA students participate in athletics? 10%, 30%, 80%?

I saw an article about Byron Jones a couple of years ago and it specifically mentioned that football was a reason to choose JC. Because it was the closest one with a program.

I understand the arrangement to allow the kids who live in the 9th Ward of Claiborne Parish to attend the school closest to their home (there are kids in the 9th Ward who live 11 blocks from JC school but the closest LA school to their home is 11 miles away) has been in effect since 1911.  The contract has withstood more than one legal challenge.  The AAA is well aware of the arrangement and the number of kids involved.  The high school numbers I got off the school's website were for one year, over 6 grades (7-12).  I didn't see enough detail on the JC website to determine how the 116 kids are distributed though the 12, or maybe even 13, grades.  I understand the AAA used an average of 9-10-11 to determine athletic classification.  Comparing the two would require more detail.

I'm not sure if the athletic participation rate for the Claiborne Parish kids is even tracked.  The whole premise of the agreement is for community unity.  I would expect the athletic participation rate at JC as a whole to be higher than the average participation rate at 2A schools due to any successful athletic program usually drawing its school's students out in larger numbers.

I'm not sure where Byran lived while attending JC.  If he lived in the 9th Ward of Claiborne Parish, the bus that would have stopped in front of his house would have gone to JC.  The other kids in his neighborhood would have gone to JC.  I guess the 9th Ward kids could go to Summerfield if they chose.  Summerfield doesn't field a football team (although Karl Malone did play basketball there).

Blasts, traps and sweeps with a rare pass.
Speed in the backfield.
Disciplined blocking on the O-line.
Styfiling defense.
Excellent conditioning.
Above average strength.
The occasional fumble at inopportune times.
Too many off-sides and false-start calls.
A good chance at a double digit win total and a deep playoff run.


More to your question, not sure the talent level of the kids moving up, but there were 22 ninth graders on the Jr. High roster.  If most of them stick with it, there could be 40+ on the Sr. High roster in 2012.  I saw Mason get playing time during the final four playoff run and Bell certainly passes the football player eye test.  I'll yield to the other Dragon faithful for more details

Junction City's 9th gade team has gone undefeated for two years and has only been scored on once in the period and that was by Bearden, another 2a powerhouse. There are a few boys moving up that will really stand out in the upcoming years. Young Mr. Mason has speed, power, desire and good work ethics, that make for a great combination. They lost all three of their running backs, but retain their QB, who is a exceptional runner. The back-up QB is a deadly passer and that might be a combination to look for next year. Also all of the back-up running backs got plenty of action and all are very talented with lots of speed. Junction should make a statement and a run for the title. The undefeated 9th grade team moving up will be soph. and the undefeated 9th grade team and unscored on team of 2 years ago will be juniors, young but in Coach Carpenters program for a while now. Should make for a interesting season...........

Take no offense cause none was intended. I don't recall saying JC had a deadly passing game but Zach is a very good passer if given the opportunity. You can't blame Coach C arp enter for being run oriented with the success JC has had there. JC won its first State title with a pretty good passing game. Just thinking with losing 3 RB's that the passing game might be looked at a little more this year.......

True JC's always had a multitude of RB's. No-one stands out to move in but Shaquille Hunter the QB who showed he could really move when asked. The 2a is getting to be a little more sophisticated and diversified on offense. I think we will start passing a little more this year. If you look back we passed more this past year than any of the last 5 or so. That's one reason Bearden has remained so competitive is a passing game. A passing game opens up the running game and would only make JC a better team............

That is awesome! Byran Jones was the most dominating D lineman that I had the privelege to watch in high school. In fact the entire JC team his jr. and sr. year was pretty dominant. Hope he and the Hogs have another great season! Pass the word bleu that Elite Athletic Events is having a football combine at D1 in Little Rock on the 24th of March. Love to see some JC players there, go to Elite Athletic Events and register on line for LR combine. 40 yard dash, pro shuttle, vertical, bench press, and broad jump. A very good combine only $50 dollars if you pre-register.

Al Bolen was a coach among coach's and showed taking a class B school and winning the overall State Title three times. His lost record of 63 games in 19 years come to 3.3 games a year quite phenomanal by anyone standards. JC's baseball field should be named after him as he was the one that got them to the dance............ ;)

They won't play.  They barely had eleven for any of their spring practices, which their administration allowed them to do 1st and 2nd period for two weeks immediately following Spring Break.  Hermitage is in absolute shambles.  Supposedly a number of the strong freshman on their baseball team, which is solid, are leaving for Warren.

I was told as long as they had "11" they were going to play. However, if you are letting kids out of school for spring practice and still can't reach 11...chances are it isn't happening.  I was also told they would not do any football-related activity until school started.  No two-a-days/one-a-days in August, no summer program, etc.

Hermits averaged 13 players per day during spring practice.  Weight room will be open 8-3 daily and 7-9 nightly every week this summer except the two dead week periods.  7on7 schedule has not been completed yet but the Hermits will most likely host a tournament. Off season started after football season was over and still continues.

Any word on your Friend bleudog? 

Still remembering in our prayers..........

I understand there will be a test on Monday that will give them a clearer indication of what they're up against.  Not sure if the results will be available that day or not.

Thanks for asking.

Any word?  Hope it's good news........

The Monday procedure took longer than they thought it would.   Won't know results until Friday.

Test didn't come back with good news.  Not sure what their steps going forward will be.  Continued prayers would be appreciated.

Please include Martin and Ronda's daughter-in-law in those prayers too.  She's has recently been faced with a sudden, serious medical challenge herself.

continued prayers for all..............so, sorry it wasn't good news.

Any news on your friends?  Continuing to pray....

Marty has good days and bad.  I'll send you a PM.

Great news on their daughter-in-law.   It was touch and go for awhile but things are going in a positive direction.  Lot of rehab in front of her, but she's shown she's a tough one.

He also was involved with building the new dugouts in 93. . The park was gonna be renamed Al Bolen field at Allen park. . but after almost a year of saying it would be. .it was nixed 5 days before the ceramoney

At this point Bleu i really dont care what they call it. . Hate to be that blunt about it. . .if they change it and it has coach Bolen's name in it somewhere that would be nice. . But the way Coach Bolen was treated in 86 by certain people and then to break Mrs. Bolen's heart one more time the way it was done, less than 10 months before she passed away. . .i have kinda washed my hands of what the JC school system will or wont do anymore.

http://www.fearlessfriday.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=67264.msg1829883#msg1829883

That post was from almost four years ago.  Right now there are approximatley 110 kids (K-12) in the 9th Ward of Claiborne Parish who are allowed to attend the school closest to their home.  They still are not counted for Arkansas funding and still are counted for AAA classification purposes. 

Whiskey, the kids and coaches in the Junction City community work too hard to have their accomplishments lessened by half-truth, innuendo and ignorance.

Visited Gravette's website, and was curious about JC. Very Nice website, and well put together for a smaller school, lot's of team pictures are really nice too.  Do you know if the school pays to have their website done?  or does someone do it that works at the school or volunteer's?   

Just seem's to be a difference in schools webpages, not sure if it's knowledge or dedication but some almost seem to be professionally done.

Hope practices are going well.

Visited Gravette's website, and was curious about JC. Very Nice website, and well put together for a smaller school, lot's of team pictures are really nice too.  Do you know if the school pays to have their website done?  or does someone do it that works at the school or volunteer's?   

Just seem's to be a difference in schools webpages, not sure if it's knowledge or dedication but some almost seem to be professionally done.

Hope practices are going well. 

JC has a staff member who has the additional title of website manager.  The position is handled on a stipend type basis.  And yes, she does a very good job on the website.  +1 MP. ;D

Got to go with cuz on this one DHFF, JC has opened each of the last three seasons with strong 3A teams.  Got a win against Fountain Lake in 2009 (FL went on to the 3A title, JC won the 2A title) and losses to Rison in 2010 and 2011.  The Earle-JC game has the potential to be a good one but, when all is said and done, win or lose it's still just a week one OOC game.
 
My real question is how does NEt have this:  Karma: +19/-789?  :o

Agree cuz & bleudog!   What really matters is the way the game is played, and what sportsmanship is shown between the 2 teams..........i was just having a little fun which, as you can tell,  i have NO room to make fun of ones Karma as to mine is +33/-98!  Good thing that I don't let something like that stop me ;D :D ;D :) ;).  Still think JC will WIN the game. imo

Now the good news from a history standpoint is, over that same14 season period, the Dragons have won 151 games and 67 of those wins have been of the shutout variety, 44.4%.

Of course as they say in the investment business:  Past Performance is Not a Guarantee of Future Returns. ;D

I hope JC wins but this Earle team has it all..  Line is big and very strong, the backs are really really fast.  I believe they are gonna have 3 lineman over 300.  They got some beast and Autry Allen is the 2nd best back in the state behind Tenpenny..   I think Earle will win it all in a very tough 3A.. 

Oh and Earle sucks to play at..  They'll prob have medal detectors to walk thru..

Either way,  It doesn't matter.  The stats won't lie at the end of the next couple of yrs for the Bulldogs will they bleu?  :D

Have to say, very impressed with those stats bleu.  All the articles posted are good. Glad to see that the school is kept up with by someone now.

Really enjoyed reading it!  Now that is what I call a sports article (info).   I wish every school in America would have something like that passed out in the bleachers at rivilary games or at least put it in the paper for us ole geezers to read!

Would have been wonderful to know who won all those games in the 30's if someone just would have taken the time to write it down.  Shame history of schools get lost like that.   That is part of tradition.  I think it can be a good thing for the young players to know things like that about the history of the game they are playing at their school.   Might make them appreciate it more.   imo.

Any chance you got a extra hunter and evans around anywhere?    Sounds like they had a pretty good scrimmage.  Jamboree's are for that appears Carpenter is going to work!

I know this is not 2A but Waldron to my knowledge has never been a passing team (other than Wade Hill yrs) they have been smashmouth, wear them down, run them in the ground type of team so Jamboree's they have not participated much in that I can recall, seems like the schools that do and Coach V. mentioned this too is that it is necessary anymore to keep up.  Guess it is ultimately the Coaches call.

Good Luck Dragons!!   Hope you beat Earle!!!

Glad to see Alan Turner to finally get a chance to play! He has been a loyal player and deserves a shot.

Got this information from someone familiar with the area and who wanted me to pass it on to the JC faithful.

".....there is major construction on I-40 BETWEEN Hazen and Brinkley if you are coming that way to Earl Friday. You need to get off I-40 at Carlisle and get on highway 70 and take all the way to Brinkley and then get back on I-40. It may save you a lot of time and frustration!!! Traffic comes to a complete stand still at times!"  

Thanks for the consideration and well wishes.

I would recommend avoiding Hwy 70 also. The construction is bad enough but throw in some bad weather I40 and 70 both could be difficult.

TI, I'm not familiar with the area.  If I-40 is a concern due to construction and Hwy 70 questionable in bad weather, what route would you suggest?

Post by: WMSbound on August 30, 2012, 02:05:56 pm
go I-40, worse case scenario you will be in traffic for 30 minutes. So just plan accordingly.

Probably the most problem free route would be Hwy 79 from Camden to Marianna. The Hwy 1 to Forrest City to I-40. Then off I-40 to Earle via Hwy 143 (I think?). The place to avoid would be I-40 between Hazen and Brinkley as this is were the construction is and accidents can back this areas up for several miles. This will cause traffic to backup on Hwy 70 at times plus past floods have made the road rough between Biscoe and Brinkley. I talk to a lot of truckers and tell them to avoid this area if at all possible and access to I-40 anywhere east of Brinkley would the best for JC fans.

Well it only took 4 years for des arc's Cody Robinson (ULM redshirt reshman special teamer) to finally get revenge for the 2008 state title game loss to j.c.'s Byran Jones (ark standout def lineman). Dont know which is sweeter, the title or the huge upset.

Good luck to byran, who knows maybe he and cody can be teammates at the next level.

Now that would be sweet, pick real sweet. There was a former Dragon who played for ULM who went to the next level at strong safety for the Chicago Bears. ULM has a very good program..............

Even if JC doesn't make a WMS game for the next three years, every Dragon football "Class of" 2003 thru 2015 has had the opportunity to dress out for at least one 2A state championship game.

                         senior      junior      sophomore      freshman
JC vs Barton        2003      2004         2005               2006
JC vs Jessieville   2006       2007         2008               2009
JC vs Des Arc      2008       2009         2010               2011
JC vs Bearden     2009       2010          2011               2012
JC vs Bearden     2012       2013         2014              2015

With the exception of 2007, players from all football classes listed above have at least one championship ring.

To Coach Carpenter and all the Dragon assistant coaches during this period, jobs well done.

There may be schools with more.  Maybe a Nashville or Charleston or one of the large-metro-area-small-private schools.  I'm not sure if the larger schools bring up freshmen or not, but if they do, here's El Dorado (7):

                                           Sr       Jr     Soph    Fresh
El Deaux vs Lake Hamilton   2008   2009   2010   2011
El Deaux vs Pine Bluff          2009   2010   2011   2012
El Deaux vs Texarkana         2010   2011   2012   2013
El Deaux vs Lake Hamilton   2011   2012   2013   2014

Of course, the 6A is a 16 team class so the opportunity is mathmatically more possible both in opponents and required playoff wins per year.

Junction City earns boys 2A track title 
   
     FORT SMITH – Junction City scored 103.5 points Wednesday and dominated in the Class 2A State Track & Field Championships. Official results weren’t available at press time.
    Joshua Armstrong won state championships in the 110 hurdles and 300 hurdles. Robert Armstrong was crowned state champion in the 400-meter dash.
    "We had a very strong team. We scored in 15 of the 16 events," said Coach Brad Smith. "We had some kids we thought were going to do real well who didn’t and we had some kids we thought we were just bringing for experience who stepped up and got us some fourths, fifths and sixths. We’re pretty pumped up."

Does anyone know how many atheles will be  affected if the La. kids can no longer cross State line ave and play at JC. I saw a post that the La district was losing 150,000 a year do to kids going to JC. Something like 105 kids K-12, would these kid have to travel far to attend a school in La. Just curious I've passed through JC a couple of times on the way to Ruston and the town is kind of like Texarkana with the city straddling the state line.

Just curious I've passed through JC a couple of times on the way to Ruston and the town is kind of like Texarkana with the city straddling the state line.

Not sure about the athlete total.  The 105 can fluctuate and isn't evenly distributed across the 13 classes.  My guess would be 10% to 20% on any given team.  With the success JC's teams have experienced over recent years, I'd guess athletic participation rates school-wide are higher than an Arkansas state average.

A point of clarification though, Claiborne killed the agreement as of June 30, 2013 but they exempted the 2012-2013 juniors.  Those 9 or 10 kids will be allowed to return next year for their senior year.  Here's a link to the Claiborne board minutes page (February 7):  CLICK HERE (http://www.claibornepsb.org/pages/Claiborne_Parish_Schools/Community/School_Board)

Not sure about the $150,000.  That amount was mentioned in an article as the estimated amount JC would be out of pocket to hire minimum core teachers and staff to partially replace Claiborne personnel Claiborne would be pulling back. CLICK HERE (http://myarklamiss.com/fulltext?nxd_id=190622)

For those who don't know, historically a per student dollar amount and a Ward 9 student count were agreed upon then Claiborne provided teachers and staff equal to that total rather than cash. Claiborne will be providing cash to JC for next year's Ward 9 seniors. 

JC doesn't receive Arkansas money for the Ward 9 kids. Some of the impacted families will be in an economic postion to legally relocate within Arkansas by buying property or becoming renters. Others won't be in that position. Those numbers are anybody's guess at this point. The JC (Arkansas) City Council placed a moratorium on mobile homes within the city limits to have some control over a potential influx of substandard trailers.  Those who are able to legally relocate to Arkansas will be able to be included in JC's Arkansas funding numbers as at that point they would be Arkansas residents.  That money will take a year or more to show up though. 

I saw a reference in the EDNT that Claiborne is in the red somewhere around $1,500,000.  The agreement with JC has little or nothing do with that shortfall.  From state and local sources, Claiborne receives $9,000 to $9,500 per student in what's called MFP.  That's one of the highest MFPs in Louisiana.  JC has deemed a per student amount equal or close to the Arkansas amount as fair.  That amount is currently about $6,300.  Hard for Claiborne to lose money on that math.  I see the agreement termination as more of a PR reaction.  Claiborne did recently close a school in Athens.  I could see where it would be hard to explain to voters and staff about sending personnel out of state while at the same time closing schools and exercising a RIF, even if those out of state personnel assignments make economic sense.

As far as school location, Junction City and Summerfield schools are 10-12 miles apart.  Of the Ward 9 kids who attend JC, about half of them live within a mile of the JC school.  All of them live within 5 miles of the JC school.  There literally would be kids who live 10 blocks or less from the JC school who could be going 10 miles or more to the Summerfield school.

I say 'could' because there is something in the works that could preserve community continuity by continuing the Claiborne agreement with another school.  In addition to financial difficulty, Claiborne is considered by Louisiana as an academically failing district.  Under recent policy changes, Louisiana allows Claiborne students to transfer to a non-failing Louisiana district with the Claiborne money following them.  JC has provided a letter of support to the Delhi Charter School to be their educational provider of record for the 9th Ward kids who transfer to the Delhi school.  (At least Delhi sees the beneficial math in the earlier paragraph.)  The Delhi proposal should be on the BESE agenda for their June meeting.  Here's a link to the JC board action:   CLICK HERE (http://junctioncity.k12.ar.us/uploads/pdf/minutes/Minutes%203-26-2013%20Sp.pdf)

How the whole situation works out is still in the air.  There is some history in that a similar thing happened back in the mid-90's with the Union Parish kids.  Although the charter school option wasn't a possibility at that time.  Mostly I just hate it for the uncertainty it puts on the families in Ward 9 and on the Claiborne staff assigned to JC who have spent many years working with all JC Dragon kids.

Sorry about the long post, but I appreciate your interest and the way you asked your questions.

I'm a little curious about something.???? 

AAA classification #'s are based on AR state funding.  So if 10-20% of the students, as stated in the post are being funded by LA.  Does that mean that Junction has 10-20% more student population that actually attends school there than show up on their classification #'s?? 

Am I stretching putting 2 and 2 together here?

Coach J, let's go back to the loss of the Union Parish students in the mid-90s as an example.

In 1995, JC was in a district that included, among others, Nashville-De Queen-Fordyce-Prescott. CLICK HERE (http://www.ar.prepcountry.com/?t=30&v=7&wy=1996&s=1&class=2&region=7&tm=1&w=9)

In 1996, JC was reassigned by the AAA to a district that included, among others, Bearden-Strong-Norphlet-Woodlawn. CLICK HERE (http://www.ar.prepcountry.com/?t=30&v=7&wy=1997&s=1&class=1&region=73&tm=1&w=9)

That drop from what essentially would now be considered 4A (or high 3A) to 2A was directly related to the loss of the Union Parish kids.

The AAA was certainly aware of the Union Parish kids almost 20 years ago as that drastic reassignment demonstrated.  After all the scrutiny JC has been through since then, there's no reason to believe the AAA isn't aware of the Claiborne Parish kids now.   

JC's current superintendent is Danny Thomas and he's been at JC for about 5 years. The superintendent before Mr. Thomas was Gary Wayman.  I'm not sure how long Mr. Wayman was there but he was there for at least 5 years before Mr. Thomas.  Mr. Wayman is now the superintendent at DeWitt.  I'd yield to either of those two gentlemen for a proper explanation as to how the AAA gets the numbers for the Ward 9 kids in grades 9-11.  I doubt they'd mind your call since it would be far from the first time they've been asked.

As a side note, JC's fall down 2A school enrollment list over the last 10 years or so has had more to do with the loss of Union County industries such as Georgia Pacific (actually in the JC district), Prescolite, Cooper, ConAgra/Pilgram's Pride and others.  That along with having to compete against El Dorado with Murphy's Promise scholarship program.

Bleu, it's odd that you didn't mention that Stamps and Gurdon were in that conference as well. JC went from being lower 3A to upper 2A. The other schools that you mentioned were at the top of the classification. That may have had something to do with the Union Parrish kids or it may have been a normal cycle.

A couple of years ago, I researched the numbers posted on the JC website compared to the ADM that the state published. Following the formula, the AAA's numbers were exactly equal to a three year average of the Arkansas residents.

I posted it with all of the links. I don't remember exactly when and may try to find it if I get some time. (Reply 617, on this thread)

I didn't keep pushing it because, as bleu said, JC has been declining in enrollment and it does not currently matter. I think it did matter 3 or 4 cycles ago. But, it is water under the bridge now.

I do not believe that the AAA will have to make any changes to the way they calculate JC's numbers because of this.

The other schools that you mentioned were at the top of the classification. That may have had something to do with the Union Parrish kids or it may have been a normal cycle..............

No attempt to be odd on my part.  I put the link to the full district list in my earlier post.  But for those who didn't open the link, and in the spirit of full disclosure, here was JC's district in 1995 (in alphabetic order):

De Queen
Fordyce
Gurdon
Junction City
Nashville
Prescott
Stamps

I understand from people who were actively involved with the Union Parish situation in the mid 90s, Junction and the other teams I mentioned earlier were in no danger of falling into a lower classification thru the normal ebb and flow of student numbers at that time.  The loss of the Union Parish kids in the mid 90s caused the AAA to reassign JC from what now would be basically a mid to large 3A school to a large 2A school.

For those not old enough to remember and as I understand it from http://www.ar.prepcountry.com, there were four football classifications in the mid 90s to mid 80s.  They were 4A-3A-2A-1A.  The 2A at that time consisted of teams that are mostly 4A and 3A now.  The AAA had assigned Junction to that group from 1995 back to at least 1985.   Junction was not a school that found itself bouncing between classifications during that 11-year period.  While some schools in that 2A period from 1985-1995 did drop to 1A, JC spent those 11 years with the schools I mentioned earlier.

I can appreciate all of the history, bleu. But, I've never looked at what was going on 20 to 30 years ago. Back then, everything was mailed in on paper forms. It would have been hard for an outsider to have really looked at anything. I always thought Nashville must have been doing something creative with the numbers. ;D

Anyone can look at published numbers from Junction City's website and the numbers published by the state of Arkansas. When you compare the data with how the AAA determines classification, you can use the numbers from the state that exactly match the numbers JC lists as Arkansas students. (JC's website does not break them down by grade. However, the totals match the totals published by the state. The state breaks it down by grade.) It is obvious that the AAA does not CURRENTLY count the LA students.

Like I've said, it doesn't matter now. Moving forward, it won't matter at all.

 But, in retrospect, when Magnet Cove was bumped up to 3A in 05-06 as the smallest school, it should have been Junction City.

Facts or not it's been looked into by Attorney's and a lot smarter people than I, and nothing has ever been found to be illegal. If anything it's a travesty the way kids have been treated and chastised by adults. We have students living 3 blocks from the school that have to ride a bus 20 miles now when they use to walk to school. JC has worked very hard to get their state titles and have put the time and work to get them. I guess the girls didn't deserve to win the state championship last year, even though there wasn't a girl playing from LA. but then again people don't have nothing else to do but talk about JC's big enrollment of Louisiana kids.. Yeah JC's enrollment has shrunk in the last few years so would MC's or any other school if you had to compete with the  El Dorado's Promise.

if these kids were in school in 95 and walking to school and they are riding a bus now 20 miles....there is a problem. that would make those kids like 23 years old. they should have moved to the AR side so they could get a better education. :D

The Claiborne Parish agreement had been in place for somewhere around 90 years.  The Delhi agreement allows Delhi Charter to step into Claiborne Parish's shoes as the school district of record for the Claiborne Parish Ward 9 families for one year.  The next hurdle is the folks in Ward 9 setting up their own charter school as school district of record in order to have the highest level of local control.  That hopefully can be approved by the state of Louisiana in a few months, in place and ongoing starting in 2014-2015.  CLICK HERE (http://theadvocate.com/home/6312582-125/la-students-get-aid-to)

One possibility could be for the Ward 9 charter school (if approved and they choose to do so) to eventually expand its charter to provide a way to get the Union Parish families near the JC campus back in the JC system.  With the El Dorado Promise and the industrial/agricultural losses in Union County, it's doubtful there would be enough students among the three geographic areas (JC, AR – JC, LA Claiborne Parish – JC, LA Union Parish) to ever get back in the mid-90's numbers when JC was classified with some schools that are now 4A, but there might be enough growth from the Union Parish group that lower 3A could be a possibility a few years down the road. 

With seven state baseball titles between 1972 and 2004, four state football titles between 2003 and 2012, a state basketball title in 2007, a state softball title in 2012, at least two state cheerleading titles, quite a few state weight lifting titles, more than a few state runner ups scattered along the way, and probably the most publicized/scrutinized public school enrollment agreement in two states, it's not like the AAA hasn't ever heard of that little ol' school down on the border.

I don't have a dog in this hunt but my kid goes to PC and I have a few problems and questions about this whole mess.  A kid from JC told my son that the LA kids would still play sports for JC.  How can a kid enrolled in a LA charter school (Delhi Charter), receive LA money to be a student of LA play sports for a Arkansas high school.  I know that the LA kids have played for 90 or so years but they were always enrolled in Junction City schools as an Arkansas student.  Now they are officially Louisiana students. 
I was told by a faculty member of PC that this would be challenged early and often in every sport if they play.  That person also said that Claiborne Parish would probably sue Delhi Charter to stop this and the courts in LA have ruled about all of Jindal's education plans are not legal and feel confident they can stop this one too.
This whole move to keep the kids in JC is only about athletics and money.

You missed my point.  Try to read a little slower this time.  Every kid from LA that played in JC the last 90 years was a JUNCTION CITY STUDENT; enrolled legally in a Arkansas public school.   This year these kids will be DELHI CHARTER students.  A student enrolled in a Louisiana high school cannot play Arkansas sports, period.  Mark my words, this will end badly for JC.

This whole move to keep the kids in JC is only about athletics and money. 

First off, welcome to FF.

You might not have a "dog in this hunt" but you definitely have a Trojan in the hunt and that PC POV is coming thru loud and clear.

My question to you would be does the PC faculty member you spoke with have the same problem with these Ward 9 kids being able to continue to participate in BASIC, Character Council, FBLA, Student Council, FCCLA, FFA, Quiz Bowl, Band, etc. or is this PC challenge just going to be an athletics issue for the Trojans?

As far as your reference to Claiborne, they may or may not litigate.  It's a free country.  They had every opportunity to challenge during the multiple BESE board hearings.  Claiborne either chose not to do so or did and were denied.  You are right in that from Claiborne's stand point it's about money.  They are hemorrhaging it.  But they never anticipated getting all the Ward 9 kids anyway (they probably anticipated up to half or more who were economically able would move) and they have already accomplished trimming their costs by Claiborne staff reductions of the staff JC was able to hire due to attrition.  Again, Claiborne sent staff, Delhi will send cash.  Think of it like Arkansas sending cash when the El Dorado Murmil Heights kids ended up at PC.  It's just that Arkansas can't generate the dollars needed to educate these Ward 9 kids since the Ward 9 families don't pay into the Arkansas property tax system.

The Ward 9 kids should continue to receive a JC diploma and transcript.  Those credits will continue to be converted to Louisiana equivalents for those kids who choose to continue their education in Louisiana under the TOPS scholarship program.  Delhi/Louisiana will require some additional testing, but Claiborne/Louisiana would have done the same had the old agreement continued.  Those test scores will now be merged into Delhi numbers rather than Claiborne's. Claiborne had already gone from a staff transfer to cash compensation arrangement to address Jindel's teacher evaluation concerns. 

The biggest setback Jindel has had in implementing his education reforms has been in his voucher system and its application to private schools.  That one doesn't come into play.  JC/Claiborne/Delhi are all public schools.  His allowing kids to move from failing district to non-failing districts has withstood attacks.  While Summerfield is not a failing school, Claiborne (Summerfield's district) is a failing district.  Claiborne has recently closed Athens and could just as easily do the same to Summerfield. 

There is money involved as pointed out earlier but this is about community, continuity and common sense.  Mostly it's about what's best for the Ward 9 kids and their families.

Let me ask you one more question:  how would the people of PC feel/react if the State of Arkansas were to change an almost 100 year old practice and dictated 20% of the students who had always been Trojans now had to go to El Dorado?

Thanks for welcome Bleudog and I appreciate the reasonable debate.   However, I saw the JC parents on TV talking about this was about academics and it is clearly not.  Summerfield is a strong academic school with better academic scores than JC.  Now I don't know why Claiborne and JC could not work out an agreement but my PC leaning has nothing to do with my question, which nobody has answered.  How can students enrolled in a LOUISIANA school, recieving LOUISIANA $$$, receive a Arkansas diploma and play Arkansas sports????  You want to compare El Dorado to PC but it is not the same situation.   If parents want to keep their kids in JC schools then move to Arkansas like all the Union Parish parents had to do.  Now, will all the Union Parish kids get to go to school to JC too?

I agree with bleudog. this is about more than just athletics. it just makes sense for these kids to drive 2 miles to school instead of 15-20. It also has alot to do with the community as a whole. I remember back when the other kids had to start going to bernice that was a huge blow to the community. If the rest of the Louisiana kids stopped going to JC I feel there would be no way they could keep their doors open, and then all the Arkansas kids would end up at Union County High School(ElDorado).

Quote from: Coach Jones on May 08, 2013, 11:02:41 AM

I'm a little curious about something.???? 

AAA classification #'s are based on AR state funding.  So if 10-20% of the students, as stated in the post are being funded by LA.  Does that mean that Junction has 10-20% more student population that actually attends school there than show up on their classification #'s?? 
Am I stretching putting 2 and 2 together here?

Coach J, let's go back to the loss of the Union Parish students in the mid-90s as an example.

In 1995, JC was in a district that included, among others, Nashville-De Queen-Fordyce-Prescott. CLICK HERE

In 1996, JC was reassigned by the AAA to a district that included, among others, Bearden-Strong-Norphlet-Woodlawn. CLICK HERE

That drop from what essentially would now be considered 4A (or high 3A) to 2A was directly related to the loss of the Union Parish kids.

The AAA was certainly aware of the Union Parish kids almost 20 years ago as that drastic reassignment demonstrated.  After all the scrutiny JC has been through since then, there's no reason to believe the AAA isn't aware of the Claiborne Parish kids now.

As Louisiana uses a LEAP and Arkansas uses a Benchmark test, direct academic comparisons between the two schools are subject to interpretation.  I have not seen any data that would support your position that Summerfield has consistently overall better academic scores than JC.  Most of what I've seen has JC at or slightly above Arkansas average in most categories and Summerfield at or slightly below Louisiana average in most categories.  Going forward, comparisons should be easier as both states are implementing Common Core.

Remember, Union County has six high schools with six independent school districts.  Claiborne Parish now has three high schools but only one school district.  I have no desire to bad mouth Summerfield as a school, but there is no question Claiborne as a district is in what Arkansas would classify as at least academic distress.  As pointed out earlier, Claiborne has already closed one small school, Athens, and their continued fiscal struggles could easily lead to Summerfield being the next Claiborne school to be consolidated into the Homer campuses.

The Claiborne-Junction City agreement was terminated by Claiborne, not JC.  JC consistently took a position of wishing to continue the agreement.  Earlier in this thread I speculated Claiborne termination of the agreement was probably political as the financial aspect of the agreement was revenue positive to Claiborne.  In a nutshell, Louisiana pays a local/state MFP per Claiborne student of $9,00-$10,000.  Most Arkansas schools over the last few years structure their budgets around the $5,500-$6,500 per student they receive from Arkansas plus federal funds.  The most recent contract amounts between JC and Claiborne were slightly under the Arkansas amount to try to help Claiborne through their bind and keep the community intact.  What Claiborne was doing with the difference you'd have to ask Claiborne.  With Claiborne closing schools and RIFing teachers, continuing to send half a dozen or so teachers and a few non-teaching staff to the Junction City campus was just something I guess Claiborne didn't want to explain to a union or the voters.

The new agreement called for a little thinking out of the box and I salute the Ward 9 folks for utilizing something that was not available back in the mid 90s.   But at its core the new agreement is not radically different from the old one.  Based on the residences of the Ward 9 kids, they were the legal responsibility of the Claiborne school district.  Claiborne entered into an agreement with JC to allow these kids to receive their education at the JC campuses.  Claiborne compensated JC for this service by sending Claiborne staff who were assigned throughout the JC campuses.  For next school year, the Ward 9 kids will have to 'transfer' to the Delhi district so that Delhi will take over legal responsibility for the kids, be able to receive Louisiana state/local MFP funds for the kids and Delhi can execute a new agreement with JC.  The Delhi agreement calls for money rather than personnel to change hands and requires some additional testing, but otherwise should be essentially the same agreement that was in place with Claiborne.

I also mentioned earlier The Delhi agreement is short-term.  The long range goal is for the Ward 9 folks to establish their own charter school district.  If that happens, at some point giving the Union Parish kids an opportunity to return could be a possibility.  I really don't know how the Union Parish District is classified but it may be similar to Claiborne as I believe BESE approved a charter school recently around Darbonne.

Oh, and my example of kids being required to leave PC for El Dorado was not meant to be an exact parallel.  Just an attempt to demonstrate how politics could impact someone's way of life.  But c'mon man, even someone from PC should realize it can be emotionally/financially difficult to sell a home or impractical to maintain two houses.  That sale/rental can be especially difficult when the seller/landlord would have to explain to a possible buyer/renter that their kids can't go to the school 10 blocks away, but would have to go to the school that's 10 miles down the road.  Many of the Ward 9 people either bought homes in the area in part because of the school or stayed in the area because of the school.  I feel you'd say the same about PC as almost anybody would say about their community school.  The Ward 9 folks had that yanked out from under them.  The short term involvement of Delhi addressed that.  Hopefully the long term solution will be reached. 

Community.  Continuity.  Common sense.

It's common knowledge JC doesn't receive Arkansas dollars for the Ward 9 kids but does count them for athletic classification purposes.  This came to the forefront during the mid-90's when the district lost the Union Parish kids.

The results of submission of the Arkansas enrollment numbers  for funding purposes is readily available for internet review.  The nuts and bolts of how the AAA gets their numbers to factor in the classification adjustment is something I don't know.  I encourage anyone who wants to take it further to contact Danny Thomas (JC Superintendent since 2008), Gary Wayman (previous JC Superintendent who left to take a position at DeWitt, is now Superintendent at Waldron and was at JC for at least five years before he left in 2008) or the AAA.  I'd think somewhere along the way some coach, administrator or athlete's parent has already gotten an answer.
Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: True Fan on July 02, 2013, 07:56:17 am
I didn't say that they have never been counted. They don't seem to be counted now. It may be because something was overlooked at some point as technology changed the way data is collected and used.

The current numbers posted on the Arkansas Department of Education for the Arkansas students can be used to calculate the three year average of 9th-11th grade students.

This number, only counting Arkansas kids, is exactly the same as the AAA has posted for classification purposes.

My argument is based on basic math. I have not seen any response that refutes the numbers. Good stuff about good people and history and tradition. Not much on actual data. Most of the conflict in the past was about the legality of the out of state kids and funding concerns. It would have been real easy to overlook how they affected classification.

Finally, it doesn't really matter because of the falling enrollment. Just looking at the numbers, there probably aren't enough to bump JC up. I can't say this for sure because I have not found a source for the exact number of LA students broken down by grade for the last several school years.

Bleu,

I guess that I'm just cynical and don't take common knowledge to always be right. I've experienced schools being on the bubble and stated looking into the "nuts and bolts" of classification several years ago. You're right about the data being readily available. It has really become more transparent in the last seven or eight years. The AAA formula is in the handbook and it is easy enough to plug in numbers. That is where I see the problem. It all adds up perfectly with the AAA when you use only Arkansas numbers.

Hey, I can appreciate cynical, there're just some folks on FF who at times go past cynical and border on defamation.

I don't have the definitive answer about how the AAA gets the Ward 9 numbers.  Obviously the easy way out for AAA is just to set up a transmission from the ADE using the ADE's numbers used for funding.  That's not enough for the JC situation as the Ward 9 students can't be in the ADE totals as eligible for Arkansas funding. 

I don't know whether the Super or the AD sends the Ward 9 numbers to the AAA by fax, email, text, registered letter, completing Form ZX7999/GB-78Q.V2.987 (in triplicate with black ink only), or by carrier pigeon (please note the sarcasim in the last two options).  And how AAA merges this info with the ADE file is subject to explanation by the AAA. 

I'll try to find out more about the submission process the next time I run into Mr. Thomas.  Mr. Thomas' predecessor, Mr. Wayman, was very involved in the AAA and, while not currently at JC, would have been at JC about the time Coach Carpenter starting turning the football program into what it's become.  People being what they can be, Mr. Wayman probably had to explain the data submission process to the point he could explain it in his sleep.

Well the kids will be enrolled at jc. They will be taking classes at jc. They just have to go through paperwork to be able to get to do this. Its not like the kids go to school in summerfield and then after school come to Junction to participate in athletics. I think this answers your question. reading all of this it does kind of sound like the kids will be receiving their education somewhere else but playing sports in jc. I can see where you might have been confused.

.......The new agreement called for a little thinking out of the box and I salute the Ward 9 folks for utilizing something that was not available back in the mid 90s.   But at its core the new agreement is not radically different from the old one.  Based on the residences of the Ward 9 kids, they were the legal responsibility of the Claiborne school district.  Claiborne entered into an agreement with JC to allow these kids to receive their education at the JC campuses.  Claiborne compensated JC for this service by sending Claiborne staff who were assigned throughout the JC campuses.  For next school year, the Ward 9 kids will have to 'transfer' to the Delhi district so that Delhi will take over legal responsibility for the kids, be able to receive Louisiana state/local MFP funds for the kids and Delhi can execute a new agreement with JC.  The Delhi agreement calls for money rather than personnel to change hands and requires some additional testing, but otherwise should be essentially the same agreement that was in place with Claiborne.........

PCC, open your mind a little and think of it as similar to Arkansas' legal school transfer process between districts where both districts agree it's in the best interest of the student to receive their education in a non-resident district.  Remember, Delhi is not only a charter school, but from an organizational standpoint, is considered its own school district.  The biggest exception in standard transfer is that the resident district can't let completely go because of the funding protocol required due to the state boundary.
 
Thankfully, so far, it's staying a situation where the PTB see the value of letting kids receive their educations and extra curricular options at the public school closest to the kid's front door.

Like WC posted, the kids certainly are not going to take a bus to Delhi then be driven back just for extra curicular partipation at JC.  That didn't happen with the Claiborne district and it won't with the Delhi district.  But then again a PC person like yourself probably already knew that part of it. ;)

Would ask the FF folks to consider offering up some prayers.
 
Martin Carson is facing a tough medical battle down in Houston.  Please join me in asking the good Lord to guide Marty along the journey he faces ahead.
 
Martin and his wife Rhonda have three sons: Keith, Jeremy and Jody.  All of their sons are Junction City graduates.


From Keith's facebook page:

"Heart is heavy, then numb, then filled with rage, then sadness...

Some of you know this; some do not.

My dad has been fighting pancreatic cancer for over a year. That beats the odds (only 1 in four diagnosed will live past a year) but it is not enough. Tumors have now impacted his liver and it is failing. He underwent an attempted stint to try to open the key duct, but the procedure was unsuccessful.

Murphy is placing him on medical disability, and we are moving him to Minden, where he will be closer to family. He will be entering Hospice care when he gets there.

But wait, there's more. His mother, my grandmother, recently suffered a major stroke and her rehab is moving in fits and spurts. She has good days when she works hard and fights to recover, and not so good days when all see wants to do is sleep.

I, my Mom, my brothers, my aunts, my remaining grandparents, we're all reeling right not. We need your prayers. We need peace. We need support.

Thank you, in advance. I love each of you, and would be lost without you."



Keith's brother Jeremy is the girls basketball coach at one of the private schools in Conway.

May they all find strength and comfort as they travel this path on which the family now finds themselves.

Martin Carson drew his final earthly breath a little before 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

His funeral will be at 10 am Monday at the Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Minden, LA. His burial service will be Monday at noon at the Union Grove Baptist church cemetery in Lillie, LA. Visitation will be Sunday evening from 6-8 pm.

The greatest tribute a man can hope for is to be called a good father by his children, a good husband by his wife, a good son by his parents, a good friend by his friends, a good man by all others and a faithful servant by the Lord.

Marty will be remembered and missed.  Prayers and condolences to his friends and family.

From the EDNT:

Anderson claimed by Philadelphia 76ers
 
   Junction City native James Anderson, who was waived by the Houston Rockets on Saturday, was claimed off waivers by Philadelphia.
    Anderson, the 20th pick of the first round by San Antonio in 2010, averaged 3.8 points in 29 games last season. He played collegiately at Oklahoma State.

I talked to coach prescott the other day

He said he let the players make the choice to use the summer to be in shape, so they could use all of practice to practice football. We he admitted that it didnt work, so hes going to make sure we are in shape before conference play begins. We have a winnable game this week @woodlawn, then weeks 2&3 we have barton and harding acadamy, both preseason top 5-10 teams. If we come out of the first 3 games 2-1, better watch out. 1-2 is more likely though.

Game, I finally got a chance to visit with the JC superintendent about the AAA question. 

The Ward 9 kids are included in the APSCN transmissions.  They are identified by an "O" in the drop down menu in the software.  The "O" category is for out-of-state students.  There does seem to be a programing issue with the ADE software in that the "O" category doesn't map properly over to the out-of-state line in the ADE data summary reports.  Apparently the out-of-state line in the APSCN software is mapped for another category code but that code isn't in the drop down menu available at the schools.  ADE is fully aware of the software bug and the JC staff member who inputs the data into APSCN confirms each year with the ADE field rep that JC is following the proper submission protocol for the Ward 9 kids.

As has been discussed earlier, for funding reasons, the primary ADE list of students only includes the in-state students.  However, the ADE is aware of the Ward 9 kids since those kids are included (by different category code) in the regular APSCN submissions.  As such, the data on the Ward 9 kids is available in whatever ftp file is exchanged between ADE and AAA.  The AAA should have all the data they need to make any classification adjustment JC having the Ward 9 kids might require.   

Hope this clears up the question about how JC, ADE and the AAA track the Ward 9 kids.

Be that as it may, the AAA numbers do not reflect the out of state students. It may be because there aren't enough to make a difference.

With the new system, it shouldn't be a problem in the future.

Not sure the new system to which you're referring. ???

Here's the system that's been in place for years:
    JC reports all students to the ADE in the manner the ADE requires. 
    The AAA uses ADE data to classifiy schools. 
    JC plays where the AAA puts them.

Actually, it is.  ;D

I was referring to the Arkansas Public School Computer Network that you named. True, it has been around for a while. But, it is just now getting to where it can be relied upon. It will be pretty amazing when all of the schools are linked up and it is fully functional.

I have never claimed that JC was hiding kids or fudging numbers. Just pointed out that the AAA does not seem to be good at math and probably goofed up a few years back. Forgive me if I believe that the AAA isn't on top of their game. It's not like they are a state agency and have any accountability. It's doubtful that the ADE has ever lost any sleep worrying that the AAA wasn't getting the full set of numbers.

" the primary ADE list of students only includes the in-state students." 

The only reason that I have ever questioned the numbers relates directly to this statement. Bleu, you point out that this is a known issue and that there are steps taken to correct it, if needed.

What makes it look bad is that anyone can use the published primary ADE list, that you acknowledge does not include out of state students, and use the AAA's published formula for determining enrollment numbers for classification, and they will arrive at the EXACT number that the AAA releases. If there was an adjustment for the out of state kids, it would be different. If the AAA looks at the data and decides that it isn't enough to change anything, they may just let it go. That's okay too. But, it would avoid the appearance of impropriety if they would recalculate it.

Here's the system that's been in place for years:
    JC reports all students to the ADE in the manner the ADE requires. 
    The AAA uses ADE data to classifiy schools. 
    JC plays where the AAA puts them.

That's all you can do.  ;D

Play the hand that you're dealt. JC does this very well. I have nothing but respect for all of you teams and the vast majority of your posters.

As much fun as this is, it is a completely irrelevant discussion. Due to decreased enrollment, it's not likely that the LA kids would be enough to get back JC to the top of the classification. It just doesn't matter.

Good luck on the season. I wouldn't be surprised to see another title.

...........As much fun as this is, it is a completely irrelevant discussion. Due to decreased enrollment, it's not likely that the LA kids would be enough to get back JC to the top of the classification..........

Loss of economic opportunities (closures of ConAgra/Pilgrim's Pride, Cooper, Prescolite, Georgia Pacific, etc) along with the El Dorado (Murphy) Promise have not been kind to the smaller schools in Union County.  The five non-El Dorado schools in Union County holding their own from an enrollment stand point would be considered an accomplishment.

If the Ward 9 parents get their Charter school application approved by the BESE Board and if that charter at some point in the future is allowed to expand its base to offer educational options to the Union Parish kids, JC might see growth in student numbers that would put JC back in the 3A/4A group they were in in the mid-90s before Union Parish pulled their kids.

You may be right. We bumped up before because of one big class who came through and skewed the averages all to heck. They were all graduated and gone when the promotion to 3A came. They were still counting 10-12. The number of kids walking the halls was way less than the AAA number. I had been at Bismarck when their 3A promotion killed their program for a few years. That's when I started looking into how the AAA actually did the classification. It was really hard to find any raw data back then. Technology has come a long way and makes the process much more transparent. It's not the best system and only gets worse if somebody in the AAA office isn't thorough when they do their job. 

It also may be interesting because it seems like a lot of schools will have some pretty drastic changes in numbers. We'll see how it shakes out.

From the 10/01 EDNT:

"Junction City’s Alan Turner led Arkansas in tackles Saturday in a 45-33 loss to Texas A&M.  Turner recorded 12 tackles and broke up a pass from his safety position.  Byran Jones, Turner’s Junction City teammate, had three tackles against the Aggies."

Hmmm.  Lets see.  Year in and year out there are some pretty good teams in the 7W.  Mineral Springs, Gurdon, Murfreesboro, Dierks, Spring Hill, and look out for Foreman.  You can throw Mt Ida in there too.  They will be back in the conference next year.  In the past ten years, there have been a few trips to the "Rock" from this conference.  I will give credit where credit is due.  JC is a dynasty.  Outside of their run over the past few years, the rest of the conference is no better than 7W.  One monster in the conference has the whole group thinking they are the cat's meow.  When it comes down to speed and hard nosed football, the teams up north need to back up and look south.  It's not a bragging thing, its just the facts. 

Hey Jack D-I, with all due respect to those DD folks on TV, sdiver gave me an idea.  Here's an avatar for you:

What years affect the classification for next year? Is it the previous 3 years(2010, 2011, 2012) and 2013 doesn't count towards this cycle, but will the 2016-2018?

Let's use Hector as an example.

The school years and classes that were used to generate the average were the 9th, 10th and 11th grades as follows:

The 2012-2014 classification average was 149.67.

2010-2011   43+55+49=147
2009-2010   53+49+44=146
2008-2009   49+45+62=156

(147+146+156)/3=149.67



The 2014-2016 classification average is 142.00

2012-2013    ??+??+?? =138 (can't confirm but it makes the math work)
2011-2012    45+43+53=141
2010-2011    43+55+49=147




The 2016-2018 classification cycle should involve the following school years:

2014-2015
2013-2014
2012-2013

I'm not a Hog fan by any stretch, but Byran got screwed coming in to this season.  Byran was a lot more active on the line the previous two seasons.  When BB came in they asked him to add 20 to 30 pounds and he just can't carry it like he needs to.  He is frequently dominated 1 on 1.  The Southern Miss game was when it was most obvious.  I've watched a lot of Arkansas defensive snaps, he might have been double teamed 25% of the time.  No need to with his lack of explosiveness this year.

he is not required to be double teamed that much, you just makin excuses, for something that did not pan out. bilema would not have grabbed him for sure....Is he starting still or did someone go around him.

Found a copy of "The Night the Lights Went Out in Junction City."  Announcers were pathetic homers for U$C and the Dragons came out on the losing end of the game, but the game is an Arkansas high school classic and I thought some Dragon faithful might like a trip down memory lane.

One of my good college buddies at U of A Joel Barton played in that game for Junction City. He was an offensive lineman. He told me Marcus Godfrey literally wore out and by the end of the game he could barely stand up he was so gassed from having to play offense and defense. Wish I could have seen it live. 1999 was a great year for Arkansas High School Football.

I remember Godfrey on the baseball field too.  He would pee everyone off.  Hit a few dribblers that he beat out EVERY time.  That's in between the times he wasn't power hitting.  He could tear it up on the field as well.  Great athlete.

   Since they started baseball , track has seemed to have taken a backseat ... Bearden use to have real good track teams ... they won State in 92 ... Oh well , I doubt they drop baseball ...

I had no clue they won state in 1992. 

I used to get mad at the baseball team.  The same players who would rap up state in summer ball would get destroyed in high school ball.  Sometimes you need to quit trying to "coach" and let the boys play.  I hope they are better than when they first started in the early 2000's.

there you go making comparasions, I said that it is sad to be benched to a red shirt freshman, that is embarasing  no matter where you come from. I could care less where the bearden players go to at the next level, oh yes touchdown complete by ole miss, thanks to alan turners lack of ability.

2012: Philon worked with the UA scout team while redshirting.

HIGH SCHOOL: He was selected to play in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Game following his senior season. He was ranked as the No. 20 strongside defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com, while Scout.com ranked him as the 37th-best defensive end in the country. In 2011, Philon collected 66 tackles, including 20 for loss with 11 sacks, while helping lead Vigor to the 5A state championship game, where he made 10 tackles, 1.0 sack and one fumble recovery while playing through an injury. During the 2011 season, Vigor allowed just 116 points, an average of 7.7 per game, while putting together a 12-3 overall record. As a junior, he made 89 tackles, including 20 for loss, as the Wolves advanced to the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs and finished 9-4. He was coached at Vigor, where he was teammates with JaMichael Winston, by Kerry Stevenson. Philon chose Arkansas over Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State.

To win games one must have a winning mindset with all, students, fans, Players, parents. JC does this.......

“I think the most important thing of all for any team is a winning attitude. The coaches must have it. The players must have it. The student body must have it. If you have dedicated players who believe in themselves, you don’t need a lot of talent.”

Jones has been a major asset for the Hogs. A DT should rotate with other DT's.  And they shouldn't have a lot of tackles.  They absorb the blocks. 

Turner is finally coming along.

SEC caliber or not Jones and Turner went into a program that has been filled with drama and adversity. While it would have been easy to give up they never did. They stayed with it and will until the end. That in itself tells a lot about these young men and the community they came from. We should be proud of them and posters who don't see that need to get a life.

No matter how one feels about the caliber or the achievements (or lack of), of these two young men, there is still one thing that is certain. They aren't the worse that the Razorbacks have or they wouldn't still be playing. Turner was known more for his speed as a RB than for his DB skills. Jones was a dominate lineman in 2A, but then again were talking about 2A ball. The Backs' took a chance on these young men for their future potential. However, we all know things don't always work out like we plan. There was another kid from a small 2A school that none of the major schools, including Arkansas, wanted to take a chance on. His name was Kenneth Dixon. Like it or not, Arkansas is not a hot bed for big time SEC recruits at any position. Would you take a chance on kids like Jones and Turner, or not take a chance and them leave the state and turn out like Dixon?

Amen!

I just wonder if any of the critics of these two really nice young men, have ever played on that level. It is really hard to do when you are playing for a winning team, like I did. To put in all that time and sacrifice when things have went south, is unimaginable.

OK

1.  A national writer's unbiased opinion based on BJ's three year body of work at that time. 

2.  There are 14 teams is the SEC.  Most of those teams probably utilize at least two interior defensive linemen on their team.  That would be a population sized of 20 - 28+.

3.  That 'rag' is the official website of the Southeastern Conference.

Clarksville has dropped Charleston. I’m hearing Gravette will be their replacement if a few minor details can be worked out. I’m hearing Gentry may be wanting out as well. Hootens is purposing a matchup between Charleston and Jct. City for their classic. There has been a movement underfoot for a Charleston/Farmington series for some time if details can be worked out. This would be an intriguing matchup because Coach Mike Adams of Farmington is the coach that started Charleston’s long run of success in small school football. Coach Adams is still respected and admired by many of the Charleston Faithful

Anyone can look at published numbers from Junction City's website and the numbers published by the state of Arkansas. When you compare the data with how the AAA determines classification, you can use the numbers from the state that exactly match the numbers JC lists as Arkansas students. (JC's website does not break them down by grade. However, the totals match the totals published by the state. The state breaks it down by grade.) It is obvious that the AAA does not CURRENTLY count the LA students.

 But, in retrospect, when Magnet Cove was bumped up to 3A in 05-06 as the smallest school, it should have been Junction City.
 
  Boo Boo said last night , "no wonder Junction City does so well , playing with 3A numbers against 2A opponents" , especially football where they get all the studs out of Louisiana schools that don't have football and other sports available to them. I mean they got next door nieighbors Byran Jones and Alan Turner both UofA starters out of Louisiana to name only two . Sounds like we need an * by all these State Championships titles that were won by these teams  .

Interestingly enough.

Game, I finally got a chance to visit with the JC superintendent about the AAA question. 

The Ward 9 kids are included in the APSCN transmissions.  They are identified by an "O" in the drop down menu in the software.  The "O" category is for out-of-state students.  There does seem to be a programing issue with the ADE software in that the "O" category doesn't map properly over to the out-of-state line in the ADE data summary reports.  Apparently the out-of-state line in the APSCN software is mapped for another category code but that code isn't in the drop down menu available at the schools.  ADE is fully aware of the software bug and the JC staff member who inputs the data into APSCN confirms each year with the ADE field rep that JC is following the proper submission protocol for the Ward 9 kids.

As has been discussed earlier, for funding reasons, the primary ADE list of students only includes the in-state students.  However, the ADE is aware of the Ward 9 kids since those kids are included (by different category code) in the regular APSCN submissions.  As such, the data on the Ward 9 kids is available in whatever ftp file is exchanged between ADE and AAA.  The AAA should have all the data they need to make any classification adjustment JC having the Ward 9 kids might require.   

Hope this clears up the question about how JC, ADE and the AAA track the Ward 9 kids.

As has been discussed earlier, for funding reasons, the primary ADE list of students only includes the in-state students.  However, the ADE is aware of the Ward 9 kids since those kids are included (by different category code) in the regular APSCN submissions.  As such, the data on the Ward 9 kids is available in whatever ftp file is exchanged between ADE and AAA.  The AAA should have all the data they need to make any classification adjustment JC having the Ward 9 kids might require.   

Hope this clears up the question about how JC, ADE and the AAA track the Ward 9 kids.

This probably wouldn't keep coming up if the actual numbers of LA students in the counted grades were released. I don't believe that the numbers are there to warrant a classification change. Looking at the upcoming cycle, it would be a stretch. Not saying it couldn't happen. I just haven't found a source for the actual LA numbers.


AAA Classification for 2014-16

Junction City - 143

                9th grade     10th grade     11th grade       AR    LA

2010-11       52 + ?           54 + ?           39 + ?         145 + ? 

2011-12       56 + ?           42 + ?           49 + ?         147 + ?

2012-13       47 + ?           48 + ?           42 + ?         137 + ?     


145+147+137= 429

429 / 3= 143   AAA number only reflects AR students.

It would take 188 average to reach the 3A. 45 more students. 15 per class.


Does anybody have the LA numbers so that we can put this to rest?

EDIT (There's a ask the AAA thread on the 7A board. I asked for the answer from there end as well. Not to stir it up, but, to get the data to settle this.)

The AAA has the information on Ward 9 kids thru the APSCN transmission to the ADE.  If a classification adjustment is necessary, AAA can and should make it.

Just because ADE can't use the Ward 9 numbers for payment purposes, doesn't mean AAA shouldn't use them for classification purposes.  The AAA moves private schools around and could just as easily move any public school in the state that submits out-of-state student numbers to ADE to the appropriate classification as warranted. 

There is no conspiracy or cover-up.  There are kids, community and common-sense.  As far as football success, there is commitment and Carpenter.

It, like all enrollment numbers for all schools, can fluctuate.  Here's a post from another thread with a page from the school's most recent annual report to the public on their website.

How many kids does JC have K through 12? Arkansas kids and Louisiana kids. Dierks has round 575. dont count pre-school.

When I visited with the superintent to get the submission information for the earlier post, it was mentioned some grades may have only 2 or 3 Ward 9 kids.  So an average is what it is and some grades may have more than the 7-8.  Getting any group of people to produce offspring on a linear basis is more that the AAA can mandate.  Plus it's hard for that fractional student to make the team at any school.  ;D

Agreed



"The AAA moves private schools around and could just as easily move any public school in the state that submits out-of-state student numbers to ADE to the appropriate classification as warranted."

Okay. I didn't think anyone doubted the power of the AAA. 



"It, like all enrollment numbers for all schools, can fluctuate."
"it was mentioned some grades may have only 2 or 3 Ward 9 kids."
"So an average is what it is and some grades may have more than the 7-8."

Surely you see the reason for questions based on your quotes.

The link to the website shows 89 students this year and 105 last year.  The elementary report only shows 26 LA kids. The rest are split through six grades in the high school. That will drive the average number up. Schools can get moved up by one large class as it works through the cycle.

"At present", isn't the standard. It's a hard count in October and boils down to how many kids are funded.

Why is it so hard to provide the actual numbers of LA kids in three classes from the three years of the classification?

Well, the truth of the matter is, and were trying not to let this info out, but JCHS's science department has been doing secret research on those Louisiana kids for over 80 years now and have discovered a way to genetically modify them so that they have three legs for increased speed but only two legs are visable at any given one time. Due to their blazing speed, it has been almost  impossible to catch them and get an accurate count of how many are attending JC at any one time.  ::) ::) ::) ::)

In all seriousness, I don't know what the numbers are and really don't care. JCHS provides those who really need to know with this information and its their job to determine if everything is legit. If they drop the ball, no pun intended, its not JCs fault. ;)

Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: bleudog on November 26, 2013, 01:30:53 pm
One of the first claims usually posted by some people of FF (usually on at least an annual basis) is that JC doesn't report the Ward 9 students.  In a effort to put that accusation to rest, I asked the superintendent how JC reports the Ward 9 kids and he was kind enough to outline that process.  That process was what I tried to explain in my earlier post.

JC inputs all out-of-state students into APSCN by grade.  They have been doing this for as long as this software has been in place.  Before that software, JC used whatever format or process was required by ADE for reporting the Ward 9 kids.

ADE knows the total number of out-of-state students, by grade, at JC and always has.

The AAA has access to the ADE database and I have no reason to believe they have not always accounted for these Ward 9 kids in some form or fashion.  The best example of their factoring them in is the drop in JC's classification when the Union Parish kids were withdrawn by the UPSB in the mid 90s.

Now I was very appreciative of the JC superintendent taking the time to outline the submission process.  If anyone would like additional information, please feel free to contact him.  I'm not going to be the one to waste his time any more on this since the man was kind enough to help me earlier and has more important things to do then (as cuz pointed out) beat a dead horse. 

One could also contact the ADE.  They have JC's out-of-state by class information in their data base.  I don't know who one would ask for there so that part's going to be up to them.

One could also contact AAA.  They have JC's out-of-state by class information from the ADE.  I don't know who one would ask for there either so that part's going to be up to them too.  I also have no reason to believe it wouldn't be the first time in 80+ years an athletic director, coach or parent has brought up the subject to the AAA.

How can it be wrong if JC is providing the data according to the system that is in place by the ADE. To assume that, one would have to assert that the officials at JC are intentionally falsifying the data. Is that what you are suggesting?
Title: Re: Junction City Athletics
Post by: True Fan on November 26, 2013, 03:22:47 pm
No, dragonator. My contention all along has been that the AAA appears to be pulling the numbers straight from the ADE list. If the make an effort to get the LA numbers, they don't bother to include them in the enrollment that they publish. I've always thought that it was just an oversight by the AAA. If you look at it one time and it wouldn't make a difference, it would be real easy to let it ride and never check it again. By the previous quotes and the fact that a lot of schools bounce up and down at the edge of classifications, it's clear that a few students can make a difference.

It just seems strange that the number of kids in certain grades is so hard to find. It does make it appear that there could be something to it.

Anybody got the yearbooks from 10-13?

From the AAA handbook, "The classification of schools for sports in the senior high division shall be based upon the October 1 enrollment report to the ADE in grades 9-11."

The more I think about it, it's not likely that the AAA even has a policy to count the LA students. It's clearly not in the handbook, which is what they go by. I tried to call the AAA office, but the recording said that they were closed. I'll email Lance Taylor and see if I get a response.

I don't really understand why that handbook citation requires more thought. 

JC enrollment is the total of Arkansas and Ward 9 students.  I've done my best to try to make it clear JC uses APSCN to include all students in all grades in their enrollment report to the ADE.  Since JC isn't eligible to, and doesn't, receive Arkansas funding for out-of-state students, I'd think JC's primary reason for including the Ward 9 numbers in their enrollment report to the ADE would be for the AAA's use.

In the process Armstrong set a school record for tackles in a season. He now has 149 tackles. Joe Hall  (2002-04) previously held the record with 142. Armstrong has been nominated for the Landers Award, which recognizes the best high school player in the state of Arkansas.

For the thousandth time, the 89 students are from grades K-12. For those who do not know the area, there is not enough population base in the affected Ward 9 to realistically place an additional 89 students just in grades 9-12 on any consistant basis if at all. In all reality, the only way those numbers could be achieved and sustained would be if students from Union parish were allowed to attend again. In that case, JC would most likely be bumped up to 3A.

And yes, those LA kids do contribute a lot to the Dragon program. Just as do the AR kids. ;)

Are you suggesting that schools with a larger student population tend to have more football players? Interesting, if only they set up some kind of division system where similarly sized schools played each other. Sarcasm aside, you are aware that Gurdon has a higher student pop than Junction with or without the Claiborne Parish kids? Now by your reasoning the only correct assumption is that Gurdon had an unfair advantage over Junction.

I don't care how you try to spin it, that argument just doesn't hold water. As HF , I believe, has eluded to earlier, how do you explain why JC never won any titles prior to Carpenter coming to JC? Heck, back then JC had twice or three times as many LA kids attending at that time as compared to today.  ???

If so, I'm just pointing out that it is better to have 40 players than 32.

That is not an accurate assumption. Even with the Ward 9 students, which probably half are female, JC is still a mid size 2A school. There is no guarantee that all will play sports. Besides, there are numerous 2A schools that are way bigger student wise than JC and they struggle to suit out 20-25 players for football. Many can't even field a team at all.  JC is just fortunate to have a high rate of participation per percentage of students.

Just curious, do you think the Delhi Charter, could lead to those students attending junction city again?

HF, the Delhi agreement was a one year "bridge" arrangement to give the Ward 9 families the time necessary to setup and get BESE approval for a Ward 9 charter of their own.  Here's a post from another thread I hope clears that up.  I've moved the quote breaks to hopefully make the flow better.


Question: When will Junction City, AR/LA move up to....lets say 3A or 4A?...lol

...........As much fun as this is, it is a completely irrelevant discussion. Due to decreased enrollment, it's not likely that the LA kids would be enough to get back JC to the top of the classification..........

Loss of economic opportunities (closures of ConAgra/Pilgrim's Pride, Cooper, Prescolite, Georgia Pacific, etc) along with the El Dorado (Murphy) Promise have not been kind to the smaller schools in Union County.  The five non-El Dorado schools in Union County holding their own from an enrollment stand point would be considered an accomplishment.

If the Ward 9 parents get their Charter school application approved by the BESE Board and if that charter at some point in the future is allowed to expand its base to offer educational options to the Union Parish kids, JC might see growth in student numbers that would put JC back in the 3A/4A group they were in in the mid-90s before Union Parish pulled their kids.

The Ward Nine charter school did get their charter approved by the BESE board last week.  Their type of charter does allow students in Union Parish.  Their charter calls for 120 or 125 students max though and is good for three years then subject to five year (I think) renewals thereafter.  There are less than 90 Ward Nine students in the Delhi Charter system now (2013-2014), so raising K-12 by 30 students or so (and staying steady or even losing some Arkansas kids) should keep the AAA telling JC to play in the 2A for the foreseeable future.

Bleu, it seems that there are more older kids than younger kids crossing the border. If the 125 number is reached, it might be hard for the Dragons to remain in 2A.



For the thousandth time, the 89 students are from grades K-12.

Per the JC website, 26 are K-6. That leaves 63 students 7-12.


Even with the Ward 9 students, which probably half are female, JC is still a mid size 2A school. There is no guarantee that all will play sports. Besides, there are numerous 2A schools that are way bigger student wise than JC and they struggle to suit out 20-25 players for football.

Are the Ward 9 kids split pretty evenly on gender? I hadn't thought about that.

Walking the halls, 336 puts JC close to the top in 7-12 enrollment. Well, the seventh largest of the top 11 football schools. Of course, there is a lot of variance in the top of the 2A.

The problem with the classification game is that one or two abnormal sized classes are enough to skew the AAA average and move a school up or down for a cycle or two.

Just going by total numbers, JC looks like they are right where they belong. Even if the LA kids were reported by class, it would take some huge 9-11 classes to actually make a difference.

Personally, as I've said several times, I don't think that JC has the numbers to move up. If I ever come across the LA student class breakdown, I can tell you for sure. ;D

Unless I get some data, or somebody tries to call me out, I'm done with this.

Good luck Dragons. The title is yours for the taking. I'll try to make it to the championship. If so, cuz, you're gonna have to come through with with a 2X purple shirt.

TF, I'd just like to clarify that all Ward 9 kids cross the border and the demographic mix at this time is skewed toward that population being composed of older kids.   Same thing you said, I just wanted to reemphasize that the notion some on FF might have that there's a school in JC, LA and kids are picking and choosing isn't accurate.  I didn't want someone to infer the younger kids are going somewhere else and choosing JC as they get older.  There just aren't as many families with younger kids in Ward 9 now.

Part of that demographic shift is probably the uncertainty these families have been living under with Claiborne threatening to cancel the agreement for a number of years before Claiborne actually did.  I'd guess some Ward 9 families with younger children who could, moved north so they would have some educational stability in their lives and wouldn't have to worry about the annual decision the CPSB made.

Of course economics comes into play there.  Not many people can afford two house notes these days and it can be more difficult to sell property when you have to tell a prospective buyer the buyer might not be able to send their kids to the public school closest to the front door.

At least the BESE approval takes the CPSB uncertainty out of those families' lives.

You sure can't blame the families for wanting their kids to get a better education. That's the bottom line. Providing a better education. A lot of folks should be thankful that JC is providing the opportunity.

I live right outside of Homer and the kids are most definitely getting a better education at JC than anywhere here in Claiborne parish. . the blowback from the loss of funds after the CPSB decision to pull the JC kids more than likely is going to cost several CPSB members their seats. .especially the lady that was spearheading the deal

JC is fast becoming the only opportunity in the region (for the LA kids anyway). At one time there were several excellent schools just to the south of JC. Spearsville High School which was located about 10 miles southeast of JC has been closed and  Bernice High School which was about 15 miles due south of JC has also been closed. The only other Louisiana school besides Summerfield (which is the local school for Ward 9 and located 10 miles south west of JC) is Farmerville High School which is 35 miles from JC. Farmerville High School is where the Union Parish students in Junction City, LA are required to attend. Also, I hear that there is a push by some in the Claiborne Parish School System to close Summerfield and consolidate it with Homer High School which is 30 miles to the south west of JC. If that happens, the kids in Junction City, La wont have any schools within 30 miles of their homes. I realize that in many parts of Arkansas, and Louisiana for that matter, geographics places many families in this same predicament.

I'm following the game with a stats app on a phone.  All I'm seeing is down 21-20 about halfway thru the third and Alan has an INT.  That looks pretty good and much better than most folks expected. ;D

This probably wouldn't keep coming up if the actual numbers of LA students in the counted grades were released. I don't believe that the numbers are there to warrant a classification change. Looking at the upcoming cycle, it would be a stretch. Not saying it couldn't happen. I just haven't found a source for the actual LA numbers.


AAA Classification for 2014-16

Junction City - 143

                9th grade     10th grade     11th grade       AR    LA

2010-11       52 + ?           54 + ?           39 + ?         145 + ? 

2011-12       56 + ?           42 + ?           49 + ?         147 + ?

2012-13       47 + ?           48 + ?           42 + ?         137 + ?     


145+147+137= 429

429 / 3= 143   AAA number only reflects AR students.

It would take 188 average to reach the 3A. 45 more students. 15 per class.


Does anybody have the LA numbers so that we can put this to rest?

EDIT (There's a ask the AAA thread on the 7A board. I asked for the answer from there end as well. Not to stir it up, but, to get the data to settle this.)

 

AAA did not respond to the question on the thread, or to an email to Lord Lance. But, I did receive a response from the ADE. Initially, they sent the same info available on the website. After clarification, I did receive the LA numbers that are reported to ADE.

(http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t204/jwbratton/JCLAStudentCount_zps42edb5a7.jpg)

For the upcoming cycle, this makes JC's numbers;

          9th grade     10th grade     11th grade       AR    LA

2010-11       52 + 6           54 + 6           39 + 6         145 + 18 = 163 

2011-12       56 + 4           42 + 6           49 + 6         147 + 16 = 163

2012-13       47 + 8           48 + 4           42 + 6         137 + 18 = 155   

163+163+155=  481     481/3= 160.33

JC's calculated enrollment for the 14-16 classification cycle should be 160.33. This would make them the 11th largest school in 2A. Nowhere near the 3A minimum level of 188.

Mathematically, this puts this issue to rest.

^Not surprised about the non-response from AAA.  I asked them something years ago and am still waiting. Been so long ago I can't even remember the question now. ::)

I not sure the name, but there's an Arkansas school district bordering Missouri in a similar situation to JC's.  I can't confirm they report their MO kids to the ADE though. ;)
