Problem now is same issue you had with respect then, a weak non district schedule. With that level of competition no one can magically know if you are good or not... and tons of teams would win all those games. They don't have to be major powers, if you'd play maybe Lone Oak or Como-Pickton or Caddo Mills or teams like that year to year in predistrict you'd get more 'respect' when it came to playoffs if you won against those types of teams as opposed to Union Hill (barely able to field a team half the season), Trenton (0-10), etc.
I totally Agree.
I am a Boles Alumni and have always said that Boles needs to face some adversity in non-district. Playing powder-puffs does nothing to help teams win playoff games. Boles teams never know how to react when a team punches them in the mouth and takes over a game. The new Head Coach has promised to play good teams in Non-district next year and Boles should be really good, returning 7 offensive and 7 defensive starters.
I would love to play bigger schools but it is not always a possibility. One of the problems of playing 2A Div 1 teams like Lone Oak, Winnsboro, Farmersville, or Caddo Mills is that Boles has only about 40 kids who show up to play football in 9-12 so they don't have enough kids for a freshman team and they usually only have 1 Jr high team. It is More likely that they play teams like 2A-2 Scurry Rosser, 2A-2 Cooper, or 2A-2 S&S Consolidated who are all 12-0 this season. Boles could also play 2A-2 Leonard, who is also still in the playoffs, or teams like 2A-2 Gunter, 2A-2 Mildred, 2A-2 Edgewood,2A-2 Alba-Golden, or 2A-2 Whitewhright who all made the playoffs. Boles's previous head coaches are now at 3A Quinlan Ford and 2A-1Maypearl so those teams are a possibility. Boles could also play some of the other good teams they have played in non-district in the past like 2A-2 Rice, 1A-1 Collinsville, 1A-1 Price Carlisle, 1A-1 Cayuga, 1A-1 Simms Bowie, or 1A-2 Maud. They just have to get the other teams to agree to play them.
The Boles JV went 1-1 against Alba-Golden's JV. They also played hard fought games against the 2A-1 Farmersville and 2A-2 Gunter freshman teams because the teams their Varsity's were playing didn't have freshman teams.
