Charlotte Christian at Greensboro Day School 7pm on Lawndale Drive….
*****Charlotte Christian is one of the top teams, public or private, in the entire state and this ought to be a barn-burner at the Dillard Athletic Center this evening….******

If you haven’t seen GDS previously, this might be a good time to get out and catch the Bengals in action. From what we are hearing, most of, if not all of the Guilford County schools are off tonight, due to exams…..

Former Charlotte Hornet Kendall Gill has a son on the Charlotte Christian team and as a footnote, two of the Charlotte Christian football players committed to Duke yesterday….

We will add this to our notes later on this morning….

On the Charlotte Christian football players from Stan Olson at www.charlotteobserver.com:
The Duke Blue Devils have jumped in early on Charlotte Christian juniors Kyler Brown and Matthias Farley, according to Knights coach Jason Estep.

Brown, who is 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, is the younger brother of Charlotte Christian LB Kelby Brown, who has already committed to Duke.

“Kyler is probably a defensive end in college,” Estep said. He played wide receiver and some LB for the Knights as a junior, and is now a standout basketball player for the school.

Farley is an amazing story. He had never played football before spring practice last April, preferring soccer. But he is 6-1 and 180 pounds and can fly (4.48-second 40-yard dash) and he decided to give it a try.

    It was 14-4 at halftime. Charlotte Christian held the ball for 6 minutes in the second quarter while GDS was in a zone.

    no wonder we are backing out of games—we are not looking like what we used to—i think the northern game took a lot of us.
