    speaking of high school football who do yall think will be the teams to beat in guilford county next season? lets start a discussion!

  • Pirate Pride said,

    Arrgh!! I think the Page Pirates will be a tough team this fall.

  • NG Pete said,

    Northern Guilford with Keenan Allen and Chris McCain will be very tough and when you add in Rocco Scarfone and Maurice Harris, this might be the best team in our area. Untested against local powers but still ready to be the team to beat in the 3-A’s in 2009. With all the schools moving up to the 4-A class, the Nighthawks are the team to beat in the 3-A class for the whole state.

    Page has a super tough returning defensive group with Gabe King, Jon Spain, and Chris Knight. If McCain came back to Page from Northern, the Pirates would be the best D around.
