I agree about bashing. I never bashed. I said facts. But I do match energy. False allegations levied against programs with no real evidence gets the burg fan base on this site back exactly what they give out.KCol wrote: ↑Tue Jul 25, 2023 4:07 pm I don't agree with bashing Holden or Carrico, regardless of what one fanbase thinks about the other. Both are excellent dudes. Carrico was ready to go as a freshman and sophomore in high school. I remember being so impressed with his ability then and just thinking he has a lot of upside, and man he exceeded that. He's also the epitome of what a high school athlete should be about. Let the work do the talking for you, on and off the field. Certainly another all-time great in our area and was the key cog in bringing Ironton back to the forefront of football in this area.
There's a lot of guys at both Ironton and Wheelersburg who have a lot of upside now; Carrico and Holden just met their upside and continued to excel. Hope to see more of the same from both programs. When they both are good like they are now, it makes the entire area better from a football standpoint and raises the attention for everybody else.
And the classist "culture" & "academics" comments dont fly by unnoticed either.
