MVAC Might Be Dramatically Different in Fall 2021


Posted 6:02 pm, 02/25/2021

East Wilkes has a packed house every Friday night. They can't get passed success of their youth and middle school teams. Kids get to high school and quit working because they have been told how good they are.

West and North just don't have 2A caliber athletes. Central will fair better in their 2A conference next year. The competition will help them. They fizzle out in the playoffs when they don't have to play anyone during conference play. Same for Ashe.

Wilkes is what wilkes is. There is talent but it doesn't get developed and/or kids don't take sports seriously. There is no tradition or metric/standard to strive to because football has never been consistently successful for any school in Wilkes. I enjoy watching the local teams play but that is reality. It seems like schools could care less how successful their programs are as well. That's why I get out of Wilkes on Friday nights to watch legitimate programs. I've been watching high school football for 35+ years. Schools like East Surry have talent that they don't normally have. Good luck to them.

Eaat Surry will be fine in 2a. We need to worry about why the teams in Wilkes arent ok in the classifications we're currently in..Its 1 and done for the teams that do make it.

They can pray on Wilkes teams all they want to. Not my point. They're not beating Shelby lol. There's is about to be no more splitting classifications. And once East Surry loses those D1 kids, it's back to normalcy for them.


Posted 5:29 pm, 02/24/2021

Now they will prey on weak 2a teams like..Wilkes Central...North Wilkes...and West Wilkes..along with 1a East Wilkes some more...


Posted 5:27 pm, 02/24/2021

So little you know...Lmao you do know East Surry just beat Reidsville last season. Last season Reidsville won the 2a State championship..and is one of the winningest programs not only in NC but in the nation...So i think East Surry will do just fine in 2a.


Posted 1:27 pm, 02/14/2021

Maybe so. Even so, East Surry won't do anything in 2A. Praying on the weak 1a teams like East Wilkes is officially over.


Posted 5:44 am, 02/13/2021

East Surry will easily be the class of the conference. Unless you guys have been hiding under a rock recently, then we should know..that East Surry just sent the Qb and WR from last year to UNC..another receiver to NC State..they have a lineman currently committed to Tennessee..and Junior WR that has verbally committed to Ohio State...No team in Wilkes is competing with them...just wait...lol


Posted 3:53 pm, 02/12/2021

Think East Surry and central will be the class of the conference in football. I just have never been very impressed with north Surry. Albeit they have a competing team every 4 or so years. Think they will be middle of the road with the forbushs in this conference.


Posted 3:24 pm, 02/11/2021

New MVAC's gonna have a lot of parity minus West/North Wilkes unless they turn it around. I think the other 5 will all have good runs in it. Granted I find Wilkes Central hard to figure right now but at least there will be some mystery involved.


Posted 10:44 pm, 02/06/2021

New league is good. Should be some good battles between East Surry and central in football.


Posted 12:21 am, 02/05/2021

^conference not league.. this site needs an editor feature stat.


Posted 12:21 am, 02/05/2021

3rd draft came out today with no real changes to the MVAC.

Northwest wise NCHSAA took Millennium Charter out and put them in a private school league with more Piedmont teams. They were only gonna play Basketball and soccer/cross country anyways. Looks like the Northwest will have 7 teams including East Wilkes, Alleghany, Elkin, and Starmount.


Posted 12:17 am, 02/05/2021

WC's gonna have to improve their numbers to hang in Football. They could get away with 18-20 kids vs the 1A schools but playing the Surry schools/Forbush who have at least 25-30 players every year on Varsity it's not an ideal situation. Central did that in the mid 90's in the old Foothills 3A league and had a real hard time. They do have some fast kids but if turnout can't improve it won't really matter. Turner will have to prove himself or else his time may be up. WC's lost their momentum super fast the past 2 seasons. If the men's soccer team cancelling the year shows anything then it'll be an uphill battle.

Same for Ashe in the 3A league.. they will have to get more kids out to even think to compete in that league or else they'll be like West Caldwell.


Posted 10:52 pm, 02/03/2021

Central will be fine in football, basketball, and baseball. West will be ok in baseball. Other than that West and North struggle now in the MVAC. Especially in football.


Posted 11:37 pm, 01/27/2021

That's most of the 2A schools from the late 80's. Will make it hard on Wilkes schools to win in the Big 3 sports for boys and girls


Posted 4:10 pm, 01/26/2021

Is there gonna be any high school football this year?


Posted 11:25 pm, 01/19/2021

I do hate it for Ashe; the state could do them better by putting them and Watauga with the Iredell 3A schools but they won't do it for some odd reason. They'd compete better in that conference. I hear they are gonna go easy on the non conference side to get wins minus a game or two; smart.

I'm glad they did this though it's better for the area as a whole.. the MVAC made it 11 years with no changes it was time to do something different. The Northwest will be so much better with East Wilkes, Elkin, and Starmount in it. MVAC as a 2A will be fun as well.. a lot of parity every year in it.


Posted 12:46 pm, 01/17/2021

Best thing that could happen for everyone except Ashe, but ya know what? Oh well

The 2nd Realignment draft came out today; completely different than the first one.

Looks like the MVAC will be in for a remodel as it looks like the split conference will bite the dust if this stays. The three 2A Wilkes schools will stay but will be welcoming East Surry, North Surry, Surry Central, and Forbush. The 1A schools meanwhile will be put back in the Northwest with Mount Airy and the 2 1A Stokes schools. Northwest will finally have some good gates as MA and Starmount/East Wilkes will be some good games the next few years. MVAC wise North/West Wilkes will stay with Wilkes Central so that will be a + for them.

Ashe meanwhile is still a 3A in conference with the Caldwell schools and Watauga. Looks like they will be a 3A for at least 2 years.

Thoughts? I love it.. it' s best for the area. We need to get the Forsyth schools and their low dollar gates away from the Northwest and the area.
