Anybody who watch the Tucker and STEPHENSON game saw some really bad coaching on both side of the ball. This game showed you that both team needs to work their pass coverage and special team. Too many penalty and mistake that want get it the playoffs. But congratulation to Tucker for pulling it out. Hope both team learn from this game that you have to keep your composure no matter is the circumstance .

TUCKER WINS A THRILLER AT HALLFORD STADIUM**** I stated in one of my earlier posts that the game would be won in the trenches. @ with only 21 seconds left on the clock and Stephenson leading 28 Tucker 24, Stephenson coach decided to pooch kick the ball, while they were on their own 35 yrd line. There are no excuses, that was one of the best high school games ever played! it could have went either way. Specials teams for Tucker stepped up and won the game for Tucker. There were a lot of hard hitting tonight, Dallas Rivers was unstopable and Stephenson almost shut down Tucker’s running game!

My JAGS defense was superb tonight as both teams played there hearts out, can’t wait for the stats to come out; for all who was at the game could clearly see that these were both teams played like state champions, and Tucker must admit they haven’t came up a hard hitting defense like Stephenson! It aint over yet, as there were several MLK & MAYS supporters along with myself trash talked the entire game and informed me that the Lions & Raiders awaits us…

Stephenson fans if the score was the other way around yall would be singing a different tune.

Now Stephenson better watch out with Mays and MLK could end up 3rd or 4th place if the play calling dont get netter, one thing for sure Jarvis at Mays is a good coach.

Great game Stephenson. I could not have asked for more at any level of football. That game was very entertaining.

We’ve always known that as long as you have Gartrell on your sidelines we are never out of any game against you.

Awesome and entertaining game between 2 power houses tonight. This game lived up to all of the hype. I stated in previous blogs that the team with the least turnovers should win and by conventional wisdom, that’s what happened. I’m happy for Lamar and his team because these are the types of games that allow a coach, his staff and players to grow and really strengthen themselves for playoff time. This was good “battle-testing” for both teams.

I told my son that I hope Lamar runs the hell out of them on Monday because they were too unfocused in my opinion. They did miss several blocks, which crippled our running game (I credit Stephenson for playing heads up defense too) and waffled on some tackles allowing too many opposition yards in the 2nd half. But Tucker is still a very good team which helped them to overcome all of those things, even against a really stacked Stephenson team. Very good test for Tucker. They played an awesome game and never gave up—–as anyone who has followed Tucker over the years would come to expect; just ask the NSWR fans. As a matter of fact, I sat behing 3 NSWR Scouts who were here to preview their potential playoff talent……..saw one taking notes. At any rate, I am happy for the Tucker win, but I hate that drive where we simply gave Stephenson 45 yards. I like Lamar a lot and truly feel he will win a championship at Tucker really soon, but I wish he would not tolerate that lack of discipline we saw tonight. It is too easy to lose a game against a really good team like Stephenson with those kinds of mistakes. The boys need to know that. The celebration after that last #11 TD cost us another large penalty by crediting SHS with more yardage. Those things need to be addressed by playoffs because as small as it may seem, it could be the difference against a less skilled, but very disciplined, well-coached team. I said it early in the season, and I still believe that this Tucker team can ride all the way through the last second of the State game in the dome, but they need to keep their intensity level up and play heads up ball every snap. Cut out the silly penalties.

Great win by our Tigers however. Great performance by Stephenson too. Hopefully the networks will recognize that they are “robbing” their viewers of great performances when they don’t show Dekalb football. This one tonight was a nail-biter and worth every second.

Now onto Mays and MLK……..I hope Malone finds a way to be more creative with his play calling because in my view our run game was shut down tonight. The passing worked extremely well and I am happy to see that…..never understood why we don’t do that more. Year in and year out Tucker usually has multiple Athletes that could go and get that ball, but we havent worked on it. Hopefully that is changing. Imagine if we had a consistent pasing game to compliment our T-option. We would be beyond deadly. Glad to see a WR shine in a Tucker game!!

Stay focused Tucker and keep your heads up Stephenson. If you drop lower than #2 in the polls, it would be a disservice.

Tucker won the game but Stephenson was the better team. Stephenson is in a identity crisis. Are they a pass team or a run team? Defense wins games but coach will lose them… Last night & all year they’ve tried to be the “jack of all trades on offense but have been the master of none”. Same formation on consecutive plays… The read option didn’t appear to be a read.. The run game seems to be their niche but they shut themselves down at times with bad play calling. Tucker has some athletes… their coaches did a better job.. the running plays that set up the touchdown pass was great.(caught the DB cheating) I don’t see Mays nor MLK winning against what seen last night. Great game Tucker!

@ TuckerDAD, and MIGTHY LION KING, I’m really glad that somebody watch the same game that I saw, you can ask any Tucker players and coaches do they want anymore of Stephenson D1 defense and they will surely say that they was never hit that hard and pounded. I still have a lot of respect for Coach Gartrell, but seemingly he found a way to commit back to his back coaching decision calling. The way Stephenson defense was pounding Tucker, (AND EVERY BODY IN THE STADIUM SAW THIS) his decision to kick pooch the ball with 23 seconds left was terrible, I feel sorry for the kids. Stephenson has lost too many games like this, yesterday clearly showed who was the better team.

I hope Tucker meets up against Stephenson in the playoffs, just a note: Coach Gartrell missed the game last year against Tucker, he was home sick. I will put the stats when I get a hold of them, but you (ALL) know that Stephenson defense crushed Tucker’s offense, Dallas Rivers killed them under Stephenson offensive system; hats off to Coach R. Ball, a master mind in running that offense.

Stephenson family, there’s no need to hold our heads down; Tucker high powered offense was almost completely shut down by Stephenson defense, but their special teams rose up to the ocassion and a lot of help from Stephenson coaching staff help Tucker win the game. The kids played up to expectation, they played up until the final 1 seconds and still had a chance to win it in the end. I’M PROUD OF THE BOYS IN BLUE & THE BAND WAS SHOWED UP & SHOW OUT! “SUPER BAND!” @ Realist123, you are right Tucker discipline was really bad , I thought they would have shown more class than that, I hope coach Lamar and his staff really address that in practice this week. @ itsonlywrite, I was sitting at the top with some of MLK & MAYS supporters, we were very loud and had some intense but friendly trash talking. But any who Lol., shake it off, Tucker lost to Marist in the regular season and beat them in the championship, and Gainesville lost 2 games last year; you heard it from your statistician “JAB”*** Miller Grove you are the next stop in Stephenson way to it’s 1st State championship title…

I had to make a long trip road trip to see these two mighty team. The momentum went back and forth. Dallas Rivers will be great at Vanderbilt. One of these teams will be in the finals for the 5A championship. The only drawback was an older gentleman that was very rude to one guy in particular and even used profanity at his own granddaughter. He worn a shirt that had number 50— so I surmise from his talk he was the grandfather of a Tucker player.. Overall it was one of the best games I have seen in years.

I wish you have seen the trash talk that I had with the MLK & MAYS supporters, it was just trash talk and not hostile.

I hope you take my advice because name calling is not becoming and giving respect is recieving & showing respect!!!

@ RealTalk… The county doesn’t care about our so called “Premier Halford Stadium” That turf is about 17 years old!! You’re right … we are lacking good lighting!!! The county would keep any touchdown money that came their way too. Our money is being directed anywhere but the up keep of our stadiums. I plan on taking this to the news. If somebody truly investigates….they’ll find a rat!! I think it is so disgraceful how bad all our football venues are.

As for complex play calling, I don’t think the coach can grasp learning anything better in spite of having superior athletes every year. The play calling remains “simple” because they’re refusal to change for the better. Can you imagine the outcome if you put these two teams under leadership that had a run & pass game plan???

@Jab… ok… did you have on a grey shirt or a blue shirt? but yall played a good game. ya’ll had em. You guys gotta get better on the passing attack though. The hitch-pass didnt seem to work and the only other pass play was a hail mary that didnt work b/c the receivers were never open. The only reason Tucker’s passes worked was b/c the defense didnt expected it. And also, we lost 3 games last year so clearly the season isn’t over for you guys.

@Gamer … man, you shoulda heard the lady I was sitting next too that thought I might have been a Stephenson fan(until I showed her my shirt lol). She cussed out the guy from the TV network that had to go down the steps where the band sat. smh lol
