    what does winning this tournament have to do with grimsley’s situation. will they have more players coming in because of this?

    Seldom do you witness a TEAM effort such as the Green displayed this past week. Every player contributed. Great job by the coaching staff as well.

    A fine effort turned in also in the East Zone tournament by Glen Clemmons. He put up some real good numbers and he deserves to get some credit. Good job and keep it up in Lafayette…..

    I wondered how long it would take for the Alan bashing to start. Do you people have nothing better to do with your lives than sit around a computer and think of stupid things to say. What does Grimsley have to do with this great team and their accomplishments. NOTHING!! Support the team. Forget Alan and Grimsley.
