I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT NORTHWESTERN COULD BEAT SOUTHLAKE. I,M JUST PLACING IT IN GOD'S HANDS TO ENSURE JUSTICE BY THE REFEREES. LET THE GAME BE DECIDED ON THE FIELD AND ON THE FIELD ONLY. GO BULLS, BUT KEEP PRAYING. JEREMIAH 33:3 PSALMS 121

Real Deal

NORTHWESTERN FOOTBALL TEAM HAS ALWAYS BEEN FAVORITES FIRST. OUT OF ABOUT 30 SENIORS ONLY ABOUT 8 RECIEVED SCHOLARSHIPS AND GOT HELP INTO COLLEGES. NORTHWESTERN NEEDS NEW COACHES.

Yea, they can play ball, but thier as sharp as watermelon. Come on, EDUCATION first, athletics second. This school is an F graded school. 3/4 of the grads never go to collage. That’s what’s wrong with this school, community, etc... If these “Athletes” where A or B students, they would not need athletic scholarships, they could get academic scholarships. This is just a cycle of poverty and ignorance that until it’s addressed, will continue.

I think it is a crying shame what has happened at Norrthwestern. I think the superintendent should be fired. Roland Smith did not know anything about the incidents until the day Easterling was arrested. He as fired to set an example. Everybody knows Liberty City is impoverished, and crime ridden but Football is the thing that brings that community together.I hope this brings those kids together. How dare anyone talk down on that coaching staff. I think 8 scholarships is a success. The fact of the matter is you cannot save everybody.Everybody is not going to get an opprtunity to go to college on an academic or athletic scholarship no matter if it were an F school or A school that's just how the cookie crumbles. The best athletes walk the streets.I personally do't think Easterling should have been arrested. The girl was a student at Northwestern. I think this was a scheme to bring that program down. Its funny how stuff comes to the light a couple days before the state game. It is also funny how a coaching staff is fired less than a month before the season starts. Racism still exists. They don't want the black community to have nothing. The the mist of glory they must find shame. I went to Northwestern, to a D1 school and played 8 season in the NFL. I have donated money and time to that school and community.

Ill post it again get turf cleats NW I know we never play on it and it showed with Lakeland in Ohio they told them to wear regular cleats and they were slipping all over he place get those boy's turf shoes so they can compete with Southlake

When it comes to scholastic sports. Anybody that knows the ends and out of football; knows that the percentage of senior athletes receiving scholarship pales in comparison to those who actual compete on Friday nights. Having said that, 8 scholarships is a real good number my friend. And furthermore, the coaches don't teach the kids in the classroom ;that's the teachers responsibility. We as coaches can only be responsible for what takes place on the field. Yes, we can encourage the kids to do better in the class. But until the parents, administrators, teachers and the community unite together. To help these kids, the problem will continue to exists. As you can tell I have a sincere passion to see these kids go on to the next level. Be it in college or just being effective and productive citizens. And my friend you need to check your stats 3/4 PLEASE!!!. I'm a High School Football Coach in the Metro- Atlanta area and my friend at my school our players received 6 D1 scholarship, and we expect more this year. And to those that didn't receive scholarship we help them fill out and get accepted to some HBCU and Junior Colleges and 2 went to military schools with football programs. And in the future you need not criticize a community, unless you have had the opportunity to reside there. Myself and my wife grew up in LIBERTY CITY.I went to Central and she went to Edison. I played football and was real good. But I didn't receive a scholarship, But I went to college and played ball and GRADUTED. ANDI HAVE A MASTER DEGREE. So don't tell me these kids cant make it.
