    And we wonder why kids are rotten, uncoachable and unteachable. They are watching you. Try this next time… Congratulations to the players and coaches at PFHS. Tough loss for the boys and coaches at THS. Good luck tonight Eagles.

    Don’t know much about Tate HS and closed doors…but what Coach Brett and his staff have created here at PFHS is nothing short of phenomenal. I have been around this game for years and years, been a part of multiple different high school teams and seen a lot of different approaches from their various coaches. But I have never seen a group of young men play harder for both their coaches and for each other than this group of Eagles. That starts at the top and Coach Brett and his staff have brought out the best in their players. When they win, its as a unit, and when it goes the other way, the same is true. Not a finger is pointed or blame placed. There is not a better group of coaches that I would want my son to play for. When you do things the right way, for the right reasons…greatness follows.

    Tate parent:
    You must have not comprehended anything I wrote if you think I’m taking anything away from Brett and his staff. He deserves all the credit in the world for what they were able to accomplish especially as quickly as they did it. I was simply making an observation on the different approaches taken by the two schools in hiring a baseball coach, and applauding PF for theirs.

    PS: trust me I DO have a idea of what happened/happens behind THOSE closed doors

    No idea? Gossip not fact? Anyone who has been around the place for any of the last 5 plus years knows what’s going on at Pace West, I mean Tate. It’s no secret there have been MANY shady hiring practices during the current administrations tenure. It’s not just athletics either. Just look at the press the last couple years, you’ve got band director issues, an administrator getting arrested multiple times, etc. And that’s just the stuff that managed to slip out.

    Time will tell if pfhs becomes a “power”….you can hope, I guess.
    Glad to hear the coach runs a politic/favor free process. All should be like that.
    Can’t say that about the opponent they just beat. That process is legendary for BS’ery and shenanigans.

    Congrats to Coach McCullough and his staff and team for a great season. Do him a favor and leave out the politics comments bc it negates what he has done and it is such an old GO TO exhausted phrase that just isn’t true. God took the Coach to the right place at the right time. The old go to shenanigans comment and political reference is used when you have nothing else intelligent to say and truly you don’t have any idea what you are talking about. WELL DESERVED writer just Leave the bitterness at the door and enjoy the kids and baseball. Make it about them and not your sad assessment of what you think happens behind closed doors, gossip does not count as fact. All teams work their butts off and all would be better off without sour adults not giving credit where it is do. They all want to play and win. Great job Coach keep it up!

    Congratulations to PFHS and Coach McCullough on this well deserved honor! It’s amazing what rewards you reap when you run an interview process free of politics and shenanigans and just hire the most qualified coach. This is just the beginning of the emergence of PFHS as a baseball power!
