The football position is not good right now with the way the BOE operates. All it takes is one parent complaint and the coach is gone. They are going through interviews and it's pointless because no matter who the AD, principal, and superintendent recommends, the BOE may not like the potential candidate and will have to start the process all over again.

Can you name a good football position currently? I'm assuming you are referring to the board , parents , admin etc.
Just within the ovc. Name a position that's had the same coach for more than 5 yrs.

? 1 or 2 I think. Peake is the only school I know maybe Ironton? Let that set in for a bit.

This isn't an OVC thread. This is Coal Grove.
Personally, if I were new to the area, I would send my kids to Chesapeake. Andy Clark and Ryan Davis are class act in my opinion.

Great way to keep a team together is by good food. Hope football can get back to the field without the off field crap.

He went to Coal Grove his junior and senior years. Was the quarterback his senior year in 2009. I think he previously was on the Wayne (WV) coaching staff. Not sure where else.

I knew he was younger, but didn't think he was that young. He was a hell of a QB. Best of luck to him (upuntil week 10)!

Lets remember to say Thanks to and show appreciation for the coaches before Coach Ferguson as they have put in many hours dedicated to CG Football.
After saying that I hope everyone involved from the players, past coaches and assistant coaches and everyone in this small but proud community rally behind their new coach and the players, cheerleaders, and the CG Band of Pride. High School is a great time in the life of these young men and women and it is important to set a good example of support for their new coach.
I don't know Coach Ferguson personally but I did see the effort he gave as a football player, track, and basketball player and it left an impression on me. He gave great effort, seemed to be very respectful and polite to those around him including the adults and also was an excellent student. I am sure if he brings those attributes with him in his new role CG Football and those young men he will be guiding will be just fine.
Good luck Coach Ferguson and GO GROVE!

I agree with ya djhornets89, now is the time for our community to come together and cheer on all of our kids and be behind our coach. Time to end the division of who is on whom side and just come together as one Grove.
