    You want comments? Here are some –

    first off – congratulations to Mr. Tuttle and the other kids from North Carolina – Brian Goodwin and Richie Schaffer for making this team, quite an honor and I’m sure well deserved for ALL three young men. However it would have been nice to have read about the honor without more of “Andy’s mud slinging.”

    As for you Andy – this little grudge you have over this incident (an incident you didn’t even witness only heard second hand) at SEG is beyond juvenile. The fact you have to bring it up once again shows you are still have the mindset of a 14 year old.

    You are an adult. Act like one.

    Mark, this is how people who were at that game remember this kid. Just as it was told to me by several fans who attended the Southest Guilford-Randleman game. Many readers probably never even heard of this kid until they read about him here at GREENSBOROSports.com. The way I wrote it up, that’s the way it was.

    I do think that now most observers look back at the incident and are ready to laugh it off. When I think about the game now and the cicumstances that surrounded it, I don’t have a problem, I just laugh and move on.

    No matter how I wrote about the honor bestowed on Tuttle, I think it is great for a local kid to get a chance to go to this game out in LA, otherwise I wouldn’t have even mentioned it all.

    Part of the old saying goes, “If I’m not talking about you then you need to be worrying”.

    Good Job Daniel Tuttle.

    I’m not sure I would put that in print unless you were there and saw it for yourself. It happens every now and then at my son’s school and nobody accuses anyone of anything intentional.
