Great Middle School Programs in the State.

I know it isn't high school, but I was wondering about some of the better middle school programs. I would also know what kind of system they run if you happen to know.

I know that Oneida and Huntsville both have great programs in my area.

Clinton middle in Anderson county tn has had alot of good teams I know from like my 4th to my 8th grade years they won it all like three times and I think they won it like twice more since I graduated hs in 08. The highschool never has much of a team anymore so I can't say the kids go on to have great seasons there but the middle school is great.

I believe I heard on the radio this week that Maryville's middle school went undefeated this year. Doesn't appear that yesterday's championship will be their last.

It depends on how you define a "good middle school program." I would argue that it has very little to do with winning State middle school championships or games and has much more to do with coaching the fundamentals of the game and having excellent facilities to properly train and develop these young kids. Schools like MUS and Brentwood Academy have a huge advantage when it comes to coaching staffs, weight room, rehab facilities, practice fields, etc. mostly b/c they are private schools and have lots of $$$. The junior development programs at these schools are WORLD CLASS and most of the kids who attend are already overachievers in the classroom.

Of course, where those schools fall short is in numbers. The talent pool is only so big when you have 75-125 boys per grade at those schools. Regardless, look for CDD to snap up kids from these type of in-state schools when they have the talent to play in the SEC -- they are just the type of kids he is looking for.

I watched them against Carpenter's in the championship game in 09 and they were probably the best looking middle school team I've ever seen.

That wasn't Carpenters that was my team Union Grove. Yeah they beat us pretty bad. But in the regular season we had them both times and blew the lead in the last minutes of the game both times. We could have played them way better though.

FYI: Carlton Flatt is back at Brentwood Academy coaching the middle school. Legend Jimmy Gentry is back by his side. That makes BA middle unbeatable. This is from experience.
