BlueBird, He is a one man show.
I didnt say the others couldnt put the round ball in the hoop. But make no mistake, Little Rigdon is "the show".
Listen, 99% of ball players are Bluebirds-- yellow buses-- Rigdon is a Van Hool!!

I bet this JH kid will never be as good as Coey Smith....or has BE forgotten about the best basketball player he has ever coached and the best basketball player in Richland Springs history?

This is hilarious, I guess you dont go to the basketball games. Just fyi, Mathew had 46 tonight against Blanket and Griff had 35. Tell me about the best basketball players who came out of Richland are? Coey Smith was no doubt a stud but you cant compare him to these boys
* Also way to take a jab at a a 7th grade who could easily be starting for most varsity schools. Give credit where it's due.

While I mean no disrespect to anyone else, you don't have to "know basketball" to understand that most sixman schools don't have a 6'3 200 pound guy that can windmill dunk.

I really appreciate your response, thank you for being respectful regardless of the situation with the Rigdons. I was just clearly stating you cant compare these boys because they play(ed) different positions and are putting up amazing numbers. I agree that a 6'3 200lb kid that can slam it is an incredible feat and shows pure athleticism. But... how many times a game did this happen? Nothing against the kid. What I would really like to know is Richlands record book and see who is the leader in each category(if it's even available). This may rub you the wrong way but I also believe that dunking (even if it's a windmill/flashy dunk) does not dictate what kind of basketball player that specific person plays. Post is different than point.

I suspect Coey will not be in the RS record books. Maybe your buddy BE could tell you all about Coey. BE, what was it like to coach such a talent?

Seriously bud, why do you seem so snarky when it's about the records books. Would you be mad if Mathew averaged the most points in a game? Assists? Rebounds? Blocks? Turnovers? I guess dunks can be added since it floats your boat. Be grateful for the talent that we have. We could go on a deep run this year in bball too! Why do you keep bringing in Coach Ethridge? There is a difference in athleticism in sports and being the best ball player on the court. Some of the best athletes I've met could dunk a basketball but couldnt play the sport worth a crap. You should know that. That goes with football too. Some just dont get it and get by with athleticism.

I thought you meant career numbers. If you mean season stats, I bet this junior high kid outscored Coey. Then again, nobody keeps records in junior high.

It's an interesting parallel between the two as, unless Rigdon stays at Richland Springs, they both only played one year. I want BE to answer since he coached Coey at Richland Springs during the 2006-2007 season. Maybe you should text him and let us know what he says about it because he won't respond to me.

BE, believe me, I'm not trying to take anything away from young Rigdon. He is indeed a really good player. So good in fact against May, when his driving lane was cut off he would distribute to his corner shooters. They, in turn pumped in about 5 three point shots. His team play and his team mates was the difference in losing by ten and winning by two. The score was 47-45, and as good a Jr. High game as anyone would want to watch.

That sounds like maybe some good coaching involved there also.

Google this and google that and you will know the gospel according to lovers and haters.
We get it com padre, no one is perfect and we all sin and fall short ....
That childish point is like when one of my kids gets in trouble and starts pointing fingers at the other seven's wrongs.

And let me say one more thing...when Moby is in your net , the rest are guppies.

Sounds like you dont know basketball which is fine. Let me give you an example... You dont necessarily have to coach a team when you have a stud that is way above the rest of the talent. You run an ISO. Have someone screen, and then you make your move. The fact that he has the presence of mind to dish out a pass instead of making a bad or contested shot proves his maturity at a young age. Like I said he could be playing for most varsity teams right now.
* 47 points were scored, 31 by Chaca who sat because of foul trouble. 10 was scored by a 6th grader and 6 by an 8th grader. Rigdon had the 5 3's scored in the game (all of them). I know it hurts to see the Rigdon boys do well but as someone who thinks rational... why in the heck would we be trying to run this family off? Basically a guaranteed state championship for us next year if they stay. And a deep run in Basketball. Some people just dont get it I guess. To each their own.

The fact that Mathew will have over 40 college credit hours, when he starts college make any difference?? The truth hurt you the first time I posted so no need for you to get your feelings hurt again aka the thruth... Just a suggestion, maybe you should change your username.

Reason with me for a moment.
A bonafide stud, a Moby, a Bowie, and his family seek a better opportunity to get to a championship by moving to such a school with a history of success and championships. When he succeeds in that goal what is his legacy? He becomes a part of an additional championship among a line of many championships. The ones remembered are the ones who started that success.

But when that stud arrives at a less than successful program and leads them to the championship, he is remembered. His name, his image. His persona.
He is great, less so the program. That is a great legacy.
