Wait till you see some of the kids coach John Barrow has lined up to hit the field this season for the GTCC Titans……How about Ricky Vaughn? Remember him from the movie, “Major League”?????

What about Timmy Dezearn and Kevin Rose, from Page and Grimsley respectivley and that’s locally too……..That’s three pretty decent pitchers right there and I can’t wait until Vaughn takes the hill and the “Wild Thing” music can be heard all the way to Whitsett……

Hey, Ruben Torrellas, the kid that helped Dudley win the Grimsley Easter Tournament back in 2008, when they beat Patton HS out of Morganton; Ruben is now with the Titans….The man that grew up playing ball with Wil Myers and Joe-Max Floyd, Tyler Hickernell(High Point Wesleyan/Wesleyan Christian Academy), that’s right, Tyler Hickernell is now ringing the bell at GTCC and he is ready for action in 2010……

    Titan fans need to go to the news-record site and comment there on the basketball article about y-ball.There is a guy posting there called dcolon that is trashing the GTCC athletic program. Show this “know nothing” how proud you are of Titan sports.
