Congrats to the Greensboro Green team and we would like to get a full list of their players and their coaches if they will contact us at Never got a chance to pick up a copy of their roster this past week. Had to go by the PA, but that’s OK.

Send us a copy of your roster if you get a chance. Again, that’s…….

Great job and good luck on the road to Greensboro Green.

  • Andy said,

    I would expect the games to be webcast again, especially the games involving host Lafayette area team or teams and for the sure the title round on the final day with several games coming down on Title Day.

    CONGRATS GREEN TEAM! Special shout-out to the Northwest Guilford players! We’re proud of all of you guys!

  • Eddie Willis said,

    good luck green team. i hope the gso colt group treats you 1st class and doesn’t scrimp on expenses, so that you can have “the trip of a lifetime”! i also hope you don’t have to listen to too many stories about what happened before this trip. too many people live in the past, as you will find. you never know what the competition will be like, so play your best and win it all.

  • maybe said,

    i hear sawyer highfill and that anderson kid are transferring to northern to build a dynasty…true?

  • Andy said,

    Don’t expect to see any players transferring into Northern Guilford this year.

    Anderson should be ready to move on up at High Point Wesleyan, he got time there last year and he has a strong future ahead of him.

  • dweeb said,

    Best of luck to the Colt All-Stars. I hope you represent your community in a positive way, on and off the field.


    It would take more than a couple of players to “build a dynasty” at NG. I’m not even sure that Northern has the foundation, with or without a couple of additional players, to “build a dynasty” as you put it. Rumors abound that their stud is leaving and that the coaches won’t be back. Plus a couple of their starters from last season are ineligible. A dynasty? Not!

  • Eddie Willis said,

    Surely Northern will have a dynasty. They have justin Smith and 15 D-1 pitchers!!!!!

  • john said,

    thats crazy good news for northern

  • bull said,

    that cant be true

  • eric davis said,

    green team got lucky when they beat the gray team, gray is absolutley stacked and is surely a lock to win the inner city classic

  • Ryan Smith said,

    I highly agree with the greensboro grey team shouldve beat the green! The grey would beat the green 3 out of 4 times they played!

  • ? said,

    Are you really serious? There is no way the gray would have the beat the green team. If the gray would have played their best they still would have lost. They won’t win the inner city classic either.

  • wesley said,

    From what I gather hanging out at Proehlific, Northern will have Carter at 1b, Harrington at 2b, Arendas at ss, with 3b being wide open. OF should be Burchette, Casciano and Strubinger. Pitchers are Carter, Burchette, Caudle, Hardin and Campbell. Arendas dad is one of the baseball coaches at Carolina. I understand they have a couple of new kids move in from out of state that are studs. Ask Ed Willis he seems to know it all. He must have been a frustrated player or coach. The only thing he does is bad mouth people. What a life he must have.

  • Greensboro Fan said,

    Of the 18 times, how many were earned when they were not the host?

  • suck said,

    you know who is going to northwest?sawyer highfill and anderson,this will hopefully bolster a dreadful hitting squad and add pitching

  • ?? said,

    who is this anderson kid? ive heard of highfill but never andersin

  • Ryan Smith said,

    Northwest is going to be god awful this year! Why would anyone want to go enroll in a franchise
    that may not even make it to the state playoffs?! If you transfer there then your going to make
    a fool out of yourself!

  • gee said,

    How are these kids getting to go to Northwest? Are they moving? Good luck to them

  • rod johnson said,

    david anderson. and ive talked to sources and they are straight up out of district.

  • grimsley fan said,

    sawyer isnt going anywhere

  • tommy said,

    yes he is

  • pat said,

    the two studs that are transfering in from out of state are both left handed pitchers one is 6’5 and one is 6’2 and supposed to be d1 caliber. one is from NJ and the other from Puerto rico. They were both in town within the last three weeks and have already enrolled at Northern

  • ad4deacs said,

    Sawyers not going anywhere.

  • devil said,

    you are right deac,no need over after high school.
