Hey ChattanoogaVol - are you a hair dresser that lives in Hixson/Soddy area?
Your concerns about Chip Baker sure do sound familiar!!!
Hey - how's your redneck brother doing?
Hmmmmmm........inquiring minds want to know!
All this hate toward Signal Mountain.
I do think they are guilty - guilty of being too successfull too fast - which brings out the hate, envy and jealousy by rival schools and communities. There is always a school or community that people have to hate on - and Signal Mountain is it.
I guess Signal Mountain is the new Baylor or McCallie or GPS. Except SMHS is public - and lord knows we can't have a PUBLIC overachieving school that rivals our best private schools in our community without getting peoples nose's out of joint.
This is really a weird town - used to be that all public schools and the private wannabes (Notre Dame, Boyd, Chatt Christian) hated BAYLOR. McCallie and GPS. The jealous talk from parents I know that sent their kids to these public and private wannabes was ..... at times over the top - sand entertaining.
GO SIGNAL MOUNTAIN - YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT FOR THIS HATE!
Evan the great private schools in our city are hating you!
I am now a HUGE SIGNAL MOUNTAIN FAN.
Regarding the player involved, the school and the current situation.
1. The kid was granted a hardship by HCDE.
2. Signal Mountain turned in papers to TSSAA - listing the players address in Brainard - his correct address.
3. Jealous coaches - who could not stomach getting beat by a startup school that was an instant success - decided they would rather pull Signal down than work to build their programs up and be the best they can be. Lord knows we can"t have a local community giving incredible support to a public school. The support their own schools do not provide them - event he private wannabes (Notre Dame).
The real question is - WHO TURNED IN SIGNAL MOUNTAIN.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........inquiring minds want to know?
Was it an local public with a huge inferiority complex or was it one of the private wannabes that could not stand a new school giving them the beat down on a Friday night?
