    So, it turned out to be a Jamboree with the schools, Eastern Alamance, Page, Carver, and Burlington Williams.

    First Scrimmage – Page vs. Williams : Page’s first play on offense, Will Newman breaks for a about a 65 yard rushing TD. Williams on their first drive score on a 35 yard passing play on a go route. From what i could see, Page’s only weakness on D is the secondary particularly the corners. Page scored another TD after that, and held Williams the rest of the way to no TDs.

    Second Scrimmage – Page vs. Eastern Alamance : Page has the ball first, and move the markers twice and then punt. Matt Millisor had a 60+ yard punt that sailed over the EA’s Punt returners head. But, EA scored on a long drive making it 7-0. Page then put together a pretty solid drive and settled for a FG, Matt kicks about a 45 yarder through the uprights. 7-3. On the next drive for EA, the QB and WR hook up for a pretty pass play, but the Page DB rips the ball out of the EA WR’s hands and runs it to about midfield. Page drives down the feild, with a big play.. Newman to TE/WR Brad Workinger for a big gain. Sets Page up for another rushing TD from Newman. 10-7 Page. Page holds EA to a 3 and out, and then the game is called.

    Page looked to be the strongest team, followed by Carver, Eastern Alamance, Williams, in that order.

    The Page JV looked very solid as well, they were led by a quarterback that reminded me alot of Zach Maynard, somewhat tall and lanky, but had some good speed and a good arm. He made alot of plays for the Page JV tonight.

    I wrote up this pretty long review of what happened that the scrimmage tonight, and i submitted it on this topic. After i submitted it, it never showed up under this article. Then i tried to submit it again, and it gave me this message that said, “opps, youve already posted this, you cant post duplicate messages”.. or something like that. So I dont know where it went or why it wont show up.

    I got out to the Northwood Jamboree and enjoyed what I saw from the Southeast Falcons. I had heard some of Coach Fritz’s comments on his team’s speed. Well, he wasn’t exaggerating. Those kids can flat out fly. He may have the fastest team in the state. If the Jamboree is any indication of what this teams plans to do on offense, get ya popcorn ready and throw away all Southeast game film from last year. Coach Fritz has parked his 4 wheel drive dump truck in favor of Ferrari with the TOPPS out. This Terrance Topps kid is the real deal. With the weapons they have at wideout and in the backfield, this group will score in bunches. On the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons are a little small up front, but they fly to the ball and tackle well. I don’t expect any drop off from last year’s unit.

    Get out to Falcon Stadium and check these guys out!
