It all gets rolling toward the lane today and we were talking about a bundle of players yesterday and today we need to tell you that the man that torched Northern Guilford and Northeast Guilford in last season’s 3-A East Regionals at East Carolina, Tayshawn Mabry, has gone back home to Rocky Mount….Mabry was a real force in those East Regionals earlier this year and he went on to lead his team to the 3-A State Championship and later on played for the East, along with Reggie Bullock, at the Greensboro Coliseum back in July, as he and Bullock woke up and spoke up, leading the East to a comeback victory in the 4th quarter, at the Coliseum….
Mabry left Rhode Island, after just about a month up North and he is now back down South in Rocky Mount….Mabry broke all of Phil Ford’s scoring records while he was at Rocky Mount, leading the Gryphons to the state 3-A title…
Around the county as practice gets going today, we will see Northeast Guilford in a favorite’s role this year, with Bryce Benjamin returning to lead the Rams and Jalyn Davis joining the Rams….We’ll see how well NEG adjusts to this new role as the favorite….They have more kids coming back too, from that team that made it to Greenville and ECU, so send us some more names and we will take them to the hole…firstname.lastname@example.org
Northern Guilford has lost Jonathan Frye to the Green Wave of Tulane, but the Nighthawks will still be very excited about this season with Jon McBeth, Patrick Chandler, DC Arendas and Daniel Downing all due back in the gym today, on Spencer Dixon Road….Downing will be playing football for a few more weeks and Joe Daniel may also be back, unless he hit the graduation trail along with Dylan Berry and Jalen Ross is now at GDS….Coach Ryan Freeman will do a fine job, he is young and he has the enthusiasm and energy you need to build and develop a young team…
Reggie Perkins is ready to be the senior leader at Western Guilford and he will get help in that department from Tyler Stutts, since Tyler is done with football and he will be at practice today….Gilmore and the little Baldwin piano player will also be solid Hornets for WG, this year….
Burrell Brown and Kreshaun Williams will have to carry the heavy load at Grimsley until next Monday, when Travon Woods, DJ Reader and Charlie Jones will be joining their fellow-Whirlies, after the completion of their football season this Friday night…Williams looked to be leaving Grimsley this year, but then he came back and we are still waiting to see how Coach Corbett works Williams back into the fold, after everyone had been told that Williams was moving on….At first, we felt that Coach Corbett may tell Williams to take some more time off, but we get the feeling now, that Coach Corbett may be ready to let Williams hit the hardwoods, for practice this week….
Jaquel Richmond, who used to be at Dudley, is now at High Point Wesleyan and they will crank it up today at the Trojans gym over on Eastchester Drive in High Point….Cade Isley, who was at Grimsley and then moved on over to Wesleyan last year, should be ready too….Isley had to sit out the entire season last year, with his torn ACL injury….Big Deng Leek, who just made an appearance on the Rachel Ray Show, with his host family from High Point, is also back for the HPW Trojans and Coach Keith Gatlin has some varied troops to work with this season….PG Richmond, 2G Isley and Big Man Leek…..
At High Point Christian, they also have plans to start the season with their opening practice this afternoon and they await the final year for seniors Mitch Oates, Jordan Weethe, and Jon Bethea may be ready to play, in 2010/2011 also….They have a new big kid and we don’t have his name yet, but he is a big force to deal with on the inside….Caldwell Academy has a couple of big kids(exchange students) too, that the Rocky Manning family is hosting and they are already drawing major attention…..
Send me who you’ve got and how your practice is going……..
“We’re living on the vine and through the vine, so I’m just saying, let us know what is going”…….
