Take a look at that, yonder. You want to know what that is? Well yeah, obviously it's a text conversation but what does it all mean?
It means it's finally happening! It's going to happen! The Hogoheegee.com pregame show that we've always talked about, that we've always wanted, will be a thing! Thanks to the post initiated by spearslinger06 years ago that started a thread of dreams and ideas, the ball is now rolling. Those dreams are going to come to fruition this fall.
I pm'd Cavailer15 earlier today to send me some gifs that would summarize his feelings of this announcement. I waited all morning and he finally got back to me. He only sent one.
I was not disappointed.
Back to the text. What does it REALLY mean? That is my cohort's conversation with Marion head football coach Joey Carroll about when would be a good time to interview him before the game. On camera. Live. On the internet. That's right, folks, we're big time now. Dillon and I scored an interview with the coach. Pre-game!
The show should last about an hour. We have a few other special guests planned throughout the show as we talk, discuss, and breakdown not only the opening week matchup between heated rivals Chilhowie and Marion but we'll also discuss all the other Hogo teams and their competition as well. Keep reading, there's more.
Coming this summer, July 12, at Patrick Henry High School is the first annual Hogo GameDay 7 on 7 Tournament!
For those wondering, Hogo GameDay is a new addition to Hogoheegee.com. Over the course of the season they will provide a live pre-game show with coach and former player interviews as well as a multitude of other entertaining segments. All in an effort to keep our Hogoheegee community close despite the many changes our schedules are enduring, the pre-game show will be hosted live from a different Hogoheegee venue each week bringing you insight into the week's biggest matchups. In addition, the crew and myself will provide a live online radio Spreaker broadcast of the game with the GameCast game tracker that I have done for the last two seasons included. All you have to do is watch and enjoy!
The 7 on 7 is a fund raiser for Hogo GameDay and an opportunity for members of our crew to inform coaches and players about what we plan to do next season and what they can do to help us out.
The 7 on 7 will feature a competitive tournament among Hogoheegee schools. So far, Holston, Patrick Henry, Rural Retreat, George Wythe, Marion, and Northwood have agreed to come. Chilhowie is still pending...
There will be a skills competition throughout the day including a Big Man Challenge, QB Strongest Arm Competition, Running Back Challenge, and QB Accuracy Challenge.
The concession will be open for the opportunity to feed yourself and purchase Hogoheegee GameDay t-shirts. These proceeds will help give us a boost to bring you quality infotainment this August. There will also be an information kiosk available if you do wish to learn more about Hogo GameDay and our vision.
Again, be at Patrick Henry High School on July 12 (July 19 if it rains). The gates open at 10:30am, admission is $5 per person, children 10 and under get in FREE.
Come support Hogo GameDay and be a part of the next big thing in the district!
Hats off to all fourtteen varsity basketball teams for another fine season! Of those teams, Chilhowie had three hoopsters earn the state's top honors. Bailey Robertson earned 2nd team All-State recognition while Danielle Catron and her coach Mark Halsey earned All-State Player of the Year and Coach of the Year respectively.
Congrats to those three for representing the Hogo on the state level!
Congrats to the Chilhowie Lady Warriors on their victory this Saturday in Richmond over the Honaker Tigers. Previously the Tigers had beaten the Warriors 40-30 prior to the state tournament. Saturday Chilhowie got their revenge and some with a one-sided victory on the other side of the state. Congrats!

Congrats to the Indians on bringing the hardware back to the Hogo! The Indian wrestling team earned the school's first ever state championship this past weekend in Salem! In addition to Rural Retreat's championship, Chilhowie and George Wythe were runner-up and third place in a weekend of Hogoheegee domination!
