    I thought EJ Abrams-Ward to be primarily an offensive player…did he just get selected as a backer because of the depth on offense? just curious, I have never seen the kid play.

    I’ve never claimed to be a HS football expert, but what a shame to see only two LOCAL players make the Shrine Bowl. I’m not here to complain about the voting, but it seems like Guilford County should have a lot more to offer. I mean besides the Charlotte/Mecklenberg area, we should be right there.
