Default Easley High School

Currently a Senior here now, and the football program has been horid my four years. My freshman year, we made the playoffs with a team stacked with good athletes but ever since has been a complete mess. My Sophmore to Senior year we have won like 4 games and finally got the nerve to fire the coach. Though it was probably tough convincing any man to coach here, we still failed IMO in a coaching hire. Hiring a man who has almost zero full-time coaching experience to take over a team like this. Anyone from Easley or in the know care to comment on the hire and what you think? I have been told that Easley used to be a real dominate HS and it would be great to finally move forward from this awful mess.

i feel ya man, i graduated in '06, we didnt win a game till the first game of my junior year vs. pickens in OT, i think our loosing streak was up to 32 possibly(state record at the time i think too).....but yea our football team sucked......when i left we seemed to be turning into a basketball school but im not sure if that continued

it really sucks b/c we have always had really dedicated fans but could never put together much on the field

I'm a junior at Wren and saw first hand Easley vs Wren (both games) and Easley vs Mauldin. And the biggest thing, Easley just doesn't have the talent. No coach could make those guys be a legit competitor in the upstate. Easley lacks speed and height all around. Now I don't remember his name, number, or anything, but I do remember that Easley had one good RB that was extremely hard for some guys to bring down. That was the only real threat they had. Now Wren has some talent (but still not much compared to a lot of other teams in the upstate) but they also have a coach with a basic, yet exotic offensive system- the spread. Easley needs a coach with an offensive system like this and also needs some talent, and a good coach for defense. If I were coaching, I would run a power I type offense (assuming this RB wasn't a fluke and he will still be there next year) or even a triple or even basic option style offense. And they need to execute.

if you have seen Radio there is a part where they are watching film and they are talking about how hard it will be to beat those Easley boys b/c of all the speed we had.......it was a pretty good laugh but we did used to be pretty good

Yeah Mike Jenkins is at Mercer right now. The Basketball team is impressive, like most years. And if it was this year it was not Aaron Duncan. Duncan graduated last year, so it was probably Malcom Arnold just having a good game lol.

Wren hasnt ecatly been a powerhouse here lately either. But they did get a heck of a guy to coach over there now.

I went to Berea and they have stunk it up here lately too. I live in Westminster. Oconee football is stinking out loud too. The talent pool isnt very deep in these areas. Playstation is keeping the kids from really getting out there and getting physical.

Yes Easley was VERY good in the early '70's I was on Wade Hampton's team and a guy by the name of Stanley Morgan ran back our first punt for about 60 yards and a TD. He was a great running back there. He went to Tenn. (things change but not much) and played receiver there as well as with New England.

TL Hanna was always good (don't recall Radio even though I was across the field), Spartanburg High and Greenwood of course. Byrnes was nothing back then, believe it or not.

You're right, but like you said, great coach now. And next year the team will be full of seniors. The QB, one of the RBs (kinda like a Reggie Bush type back), many of the WRs, and other star players will be seniors next year. Watch out for Wren here in the upstate.

sounds like yall will stomp Easley lol....not that i really care. but when i was at school it seemed like the Easley-Pickens Rivalry took a back seat to the Easley-Wren Rivalry, i remember my senior year(i think) there was a fight between the seniors and prb other grades too but i really only knew seniors.....but yea i think it was b/c we hung out with wren kids more than pickens folk
