What was your impression of his comments when they turned to UVa’s present-day football success?
One thing that stood out to me was that he put so much emphasis on in-state football recruiting of the most-publicized players in the state.
I should say that in my opinion at least, high school football in Virginia is not what it was when he was playing for Tabb. He says that he would put high school football in Virginia up against the high school football from any state in the country.
I don’t know about high school football in far-away states, but in Virginia, and I’m talking about even before COVID-19 hit, it’s just not as good as it was back in the 1980’s. The numbers are down even at the high schools that are known as dynasty high schools, and I attribute that mostly to the head injury scare.
And some of the best players are going to Florida to play their high school football at a private high school, IMG.
