Dad glasses much?Our other issue is Loftis is still our coach. He blew some games by not utilizing the right players. Mine sat out his junior year with 3 hairline fractures in his lower spine. He was a baseball kid first, so he wanted to heal. He had already won starting roles as a Soph, and was one of the best O-linemen in the region at 170 pounds that year. When he came back he didn't get his starting jobs back even though he was outperforming. Loftis is just that way, even though he was glad to have him back, and it was his recommendation to lay out and heal. He was only 5'9", and 195 as a senior but had real good hands and ran good tight end routes. Coach just waited too late to move him there, and then didn't capitalize on it when he was making plays. He wouldn't go back to him. Even a year later now, players still tell him they don't know why Loftis didn't use him more.
They haven’t. Come close several times. North jackson openly recruited perry then Eddie when Eddie broom bashed the kid. There is bad blood, which is why we didn’t play in the 90s. I think Vic tried to at least scrimmage them a few times. It could be a huge rivalry.I wasn't aware Spitt had ever played North Jackson? Now we did play Bridgeport & Stevenson annually back in the old SVC days; before Bport & Stevenson Consolidated into North Jackson.
