...is from my hometown,   He was raised by his grandfather who was the head coach of the high school football team. (Small town...only 1 team in the city). Jason played for his grandfather...went to Tenn...and the rest is history. By the way...his grandfather is a legend in HS sports.

His brother Sean has been the coach of the same high school team for the last few years.  Today....they won the state championship for the first time since 1936.

Congrats to my HS alma mater....Elizabethton High School Cyclones.

@ladypanther is the only person on this board who could make this thread and not get flamed. 

congrats!

Hope you are right....thanks.

In my small town...the HS football team was important...but the town was also very supportive of the HS band,,,which had won many awards. The latter paid for my college education.

When I was there.....for every home game there was a parade. 

How do you beat that?

Elizabethton has a nice downtown area - kind of a small town feel like a West Jefferson or Waxhaw although I think E-ton is a bit bigger than either of those.   It's definitely worth a day trip if you've never been.

If you think Waxhaw still has a nice small town feel, you haven't been there lately. My family is from there and 20 years ago my grandmother was complaining about losing her elbow room as people moved out there. Now it's pretty much overrun by yankees who have made it the trendy new suburb.

I didn't say it was big, what I was commenting on is that it has lost that small town FEEL. It doesn't feel like a small town anymore, it feels like a trendy suburb. Small towns don't get traffic jams or have shiny new trendy local breweries and haute cuisine eateries next to an ice cream shop that's been open less than 3 years. Waxhaw used to have antique shops with actual local antiques in them and a local eatery that had been there for generations run by the same people. Now it's a bar, indistinguishable from bars you might find in Matthews or SouthPark or Noda or Huntersville.
