    Don’t forget Derek Grant too, 110 yards of Drew Adams passing yards came from him.

  • FootballKing said,

    Like I send saturday EG is not a bad team, and if Josh Morehead just had 1 or 2 more weapons with him down the stretch look for EG to creep back up…. Dudley’s Major is a monster on D if dont bring the hype to the feild

  • phil said,

    the only difference between keenan allen and josh morehead is 5 inches

  • but? said,

    What about kurt McPhereson from Grimsley. He’s put up pretty solid numbers this year.

  • Brian said,

    The Page Pirate Defense played there best game last Friday. The DB’s played very well, also Jon Spain returned a INT for a touchdown. The game was not nearly as close as the 49-21 final score suggest.

  • FootballKing said,

    Mr. Allen or Mr. Morehead. I would go with Mr. Morehead more physical, faster, smarter, all-around good i dont see him making bad choices. Mr. Allen is tall, good quickness, lets see wat he does against EA. my opinion: when Allen played Dudley and didnt put up any numbers. Mr. Morehead played EA #3 school in NC and had 304 yards wow…By the way. Do these guys play each other any time during the season

  • Tom said,

    Mr. Morehead and Mr. Allen next friday at northern guilford

  • thelostone said,

    Morehead Clearly better than Allen Wildcats Coach Isnt doing such a great job butting his name out there the kid is a great athlete coming in and playing Quarterback for their downed starter Derek Holbrook #7″lets Go” and doing a great job lets se Allen do that

  • NWG Parent said,

    We have played vs. both. Moorehead is GOOD, he ran back two kicks and an int vs. us, BUT you are crazy if you think he is better than Allen. Allen is the best receiver, running back, safety, and yes QB in the area. He is a one man show, and is the best this area has ever seen

  • dave said,

    FootballKing, Allen is miles ahead of Morehead at this time, and that’s not a slam against Morehead. And I don”t know what game you were watching but the whole southeastern US is talking about the game Allen had against Dudley. Some of you seem to over-hyping a few of these kids. Allen has played WR, DB, LBER, QB, and returns kicks. He had over 20 tackles in the Dudley game and played 4 positions.

  • ASSume said,

    thelostone

    Don’t presume to know what the EG coach is doing and not doing. Have you been with him in the office while he emails or calls countless schools on Morehead. Were you there when he set up a visit for Morehead at NC. State this previous weekend or other schools he is going to visit. I didn’t think so. Don’t bad mouth a coach that you know nothing about. The offers will come and yes the coach is doing his job.

  • RW21 said,

    football king u are crazy if u believe allen is miles ahead of morehead. josh morehead plays every position keenan does qb, db, wr and when he returns kicks everyone knows its gonna be a TD. josh morehead is faster and stronger the only thing allen has over him is 5 inches. josh morehead will e player of the year hands down

  • KH said,

    I agree Kennan Allen is the real deal! But the proclaim the best ever? Let’s wait on that for a while.
    Look up Tripp Welbourne. Tripp was and is the best player to ever play in Guilford County.

  • Andy said,

    Eastern Guilford with Josh Morehead at Northern Guilford with Keenan Allen at NG mext Friday night, October 9th….Argueably the two best players in Guilford County and also two of the best athletes in the state will on the field at the same time, so we can check final countdown numbers.

    But first, Morehead and EG at Morehead this Friday where they have to get a win to stay on life-support for the playoffs and Northern at unbeaten and #3 ranked Eastern Alamance with the Eagles QB Ivey and KA set to faceoff this Friday night…….

  • henry said,

    While you are at it, don’t forget about Luke Heavner. All he did was go 9-12, no turnovers and ran a productive offense in adverse conditions. No, he did not throw it 20 times as he did against Dudley and Page, but his contribution was just as much.

  • DON,T FORGET THE PAST said,

    NWG parent, I hope I misread your post that Allen is the best alltime. Coming from an area school that has not faired to well in the playoffs(when you have been lucky enough to make it),I guess your statement does not suprise me. There have been plenty of great players to play in this county that went on to play well a bigtime D1 colleges. Tripp Welbourne was an all american at Michigan, Bostic Brothers from Smith productive NFL careers,Jeff Dunn started at QB at Alabama, The other Page quarterback great career at SC throwing tds to Sterling sharpe,and just this past weekend Remene Alston 6 carries 42 yards and the td that put Oregon up 18 to 3 in the second quarter against the #6 team in the counry Cal. Allen is a great player but until we see him play at this level in college(and I am not saying he can’t)the jury is still out.

  • hscoach said,

    I dont know you can say Allen is the best all time either. There have been plenty of pretty good players throughout Guilford County in the past. Torry Holt was not a bad player (Eastern Guilford) the Hackett brothers (Dino (sp) and Joey) both of whom had very good NFL carreers. There are plenty more out there including all the names listed already from Page, the two brothers from Grimsley, I cant remember his name off the top of my head but he played QB at Western Guilford then went on to a pretty good punting carreer in the NFL. I guess if I was going to go with a best of all time I would probably give my vote to Tripp Welborne as well. Would of had a great NFL carreer but I believe he blew his knee out his senior season at Michigan. One more pretty good player, Todd Ellis, QB from page. He held passing records at South Carolina for ever. I am not a Page fan, just was in high school at that time.

  • HITMAN25 said,

    Kennan Allen is without question a very good football player! I heard the stories and read all the articles and watching him in person this year I was very impressed. But lets wait until his college career concludes before naming him the best ever to play in Guilford County. Several players from Guilford County who may not have had all the press or big name have gone on to play in the NFL and are still currently playing. Marques Douglass (Dudley High School, Howard University) Current member of the New York Jets, Adrian Wilson (High Point Andrews, NC State) Arizona Cardinals. Those guys are just a few.

  • HITMAN25 said,

    As far as best of all time. My vote would go to Tripp Welbourne. Heck we could go with Haywood Jefferies, Haywood was a multisport star at Page. The Bostic brothers, Ethan Albright. Lets revisit the best ever after Allen finishes College I mean the list is long. This is no knock on Allen but calling someone the best of ALL TIME while they are still playing high school ball is a bit mature.

  • FOOTLOOSE said,

    Keenan is the best and there is no debate. Remember the topic is centered around Highschool right now.

  • Eddie Willis said,

    “premature” maybe.

  • HITMAN25 said,

    Right we talking about high school and my vote is still with Tripp Welbourne as the best ever.
    Page was 40-1-1 and won two state championships with Tripp Welborne.
    Tripp Welborne was so dominant as a high school player that recruiting anaylst ranked him as the best prospect as both a receiver and defensive back.

    My source is “Michigan: where have you gone?”

  • Charlie Sanders said,

    This guy could be the best ever in Guilford County
