We presented the Greensborosports.com/FedEx 2010 high school football Player of the Year award last night, to Daniel Downing, out at Northern Guilford HS and I wanted to post the presentation notes, so you could get an idea of what was said and let’s hope we can come up with some nice comments for your school’s winner next year/season, unless Double D decides to pull an Archie Griffin on us and it may pay some of you to look up Archie and see what he did back then….It has been a while…..

Here are the notes from last night’s presentation and we should have some video from our man Dennis White later on today….

We are here tonight to honor in part, the 2010 Northern Guilford

Nighthawks State Championship football team…A team that many thought would

not be as good as they were in 2009, and they weren’t, they were Better…..They

were State Champions…With men like Rocco Scarfone, Maurice Harris, Alan Hart,

TJ Logan, Mohammed Khellah, Stephen Machanic, Mark Mitchell and the young

man we are here to honor tonight, Daniel Downing…Daniel Downing, known for

Hard work, Determination, and Dedication…..”Double D”, Daniel Downing,

whether it be Double Duty, going both ways in football or going for a Double

Double for the Nighthawk basketball team, Daniel Downing gets the job done…

As voted on by the readers at Greensborosports.com, Daniel Downing is the

Greensborosports.com/Fed-Ex 2010 High School Football Player of the Year….

Congratulations Daniel Downing, Congratulations Nighthawks….And we also

would like to thank Keith Miller and Fed-Ex for their support on this



PLAYER OF THE YEAR, Nighthawk fans…………..

    Is that the same kid who got the Sportsmanship Award during the Little 4 ?

  • Anna said,

    The award went to a very deserving young man, who always gives his team and football coaches the credit for his outstanding performances. Way to go, Daniel!

    I don’t know Daniel personally, but I’ve followed his achievements. I’m very impressed with his athletic skills –
    especially his versatility in football. Congratulations to Daniel for this award and to the entire NG family for
    their state championship!

    To topfin29: no, Daniel did not get the sportsmanship award at the Little 4.

    Congratulations not only to Daniel but to all the Player of the Week winners. It was a pool stocked full of talent. It’s been fun to follow many of them as they made all conference, all area, and all state. Guilford County should be proud of our football excellence!!

    I’m pretty sure the Sportsmanship winner at the Pizza Hut Tournament was #1 from Northern, Patrick Chandler….
