I know there may not be many, but for those of you who care I've found out more information about the situation at Hope from a Parent close to the situation.  At first I heard there was only a state trooper involved, which is the school superintendent's neighbor, but after speaking to parent of a current player there were more people involved behind the scenes.  From what I am told the state trooper is the only one on record of talking to the superintendent, but the assistant chief of police, and a detective on the police force, which is president of booster club and on the school board, was involved.   The state trooper, which has a son on the team, the  assistant chief of police, which has a son on the team, didn't like how the coach taught base running and thought he should use arm band signs instead of hand signs, so they along with the detective all openly campaigned to parents during the games, dressed in full uniform with their weapons by their side,  saying the coach did not know what he was doing because he would not take their suggestions,  so they tried to get the parents to complain to the school about the coach but none of the parents took the bait. So complaints went directly from the trooper, who represented the three,  to the superintendent and he took his word.  From the people I've spoken to they said the superintendent  never talked to the coach about any of these issues and just reassigned him.

Come to find out the state trooper's family and the assistant chief of police's family's kids are best friends and the two families are really close and always do everything together. The assistant chief of police is the detectives' boss and her son is dating the detectives daughter.  I was also told that the state trooper and his wife, along with the assistant chief of police both threatened to  take their kids to Nashville if something wasn't done with the coach. So it sounds like the local PO PO and trooper's are running things at Hope High School.

If this is all true it is a disgrace and no matter where you are from things like this should not happen and the Hope community should know.

Coach,  its time to be done. It's doing nothing but making this situation worse. Let it go and move on. Just stop.

This is something we can all agree on... 

One another note:  One last thing I'm  going to say is I am not the former coach.  So whoever reads this thread know that.  I don't  want anyone to think I am someone who I am not.

However,  I do my best to find truths about things that intrigue me.  Living in Hope and hearing all the misfortunes and misguidances that happen in the community and the school district doesn't set well with me.  There are people who are holding Hope down and they need to move on. Some of them are mentioned in this thread, not by name, but by title.  People need to wake up.  I've done all I can do here.  Maybe one day karma will catch up with them.  I'm  out, thanks. Bo

Why would we recruit Gurdon when we have Hope? Never mind youíre right. Getting a Hope senior is equivalent to a normal 8th grader.

Hope went from the worst coach in the history of baseball, Billy Rook, to a bad coach in Meeker. But letís not think the results are because of coaching. Hope hasnít had baseball talent in the last 4 years. During the Rook years they had solid players just no coaching. Rook made it to where kids hoped practices and games would be cancelled. With a better coach there would have been at least two years Hope was competitive. You could have put Van Horn coaching this Hope team the last few years and not done any better, itís just facts. The best thing to possibly do is cancel the athletic department in Hope. Football, Baseball, Softball, Girls and Boys basketball and Soccer won a combined 4 or 5 conference games. Thatís laughable.

if u go off players stats, every kid improved their batting averages from 1st year to 2nd. If u look at team stats average went up,errors went down, team era went down with basically the same team. Plus win total went up. My son looks like a completely different player because of him. All the coaches around conference have mentioned how there is improvement. So how is that not good?

From what I've gathered, Mohawk is the former coach (according to others). He adamantly denies it, and even made a final sign off stating that he was not. Also, the former coach may be the new defensive coordinator for Prescott (although he will be taking a big pay cut to do so...). Other than a few titles and neighborly good ole boy theories being thrown out, nothing has really come of this thread. Sounds like the law dogs around Hempstead county are beating their chests about traveling ball success and running the show around the Hope school due to the high school's lack of success compared to the traveling team's successes. Since we all know that traveling select ball is the exact same as high school baseball.

That's basically the long and short of the thread at this point.
