Samantha Coffer of Northern Guilford was recently selected to play in the North
and South All Star game which features the best of North Carolina and South
Carolina female basketball players according to the News and Records report
that was in the Sunday’s paper about two weeks ago.

Samantha Coffer led Northern Guilford to the Sectionals Finals and
finished her career with slightly over 1800 points according to the most recent
report. The panel was headed up by former Grimsley head coach Phil Weaver whom is on the panel. She is the only Guilford County player to be selected.

Recent players to have played in such a game featured Trumae Lucas (Grimsley)
and Jasmine Gill (Page).

    Miranda Jenkins is deserving of this selection! Overlooked once again! Look at the total body of work! She was out of this world in the sectionals!
    Snuffed again!

  • Concerned Fan said,

    What about Dezire Drayton (Dudley), Tonya Jackson(Dudley),Ebona Goins(Dudley)
    Zena Lovett(Southwest)and yes I agree Miranda Jenkins!!

  • B-ball Fan said,

    Congrats to Samantha !! Can anyone on here ever be positive about anything !?!?!?!? She deserves every bit of this honor ! Give her some love people !

  • SW Fan said,

    Congratulations Samantha….well deserved. Wish you the best of luck!!

    FYI….Zena Lovette is Junior. You must be a Senior to be nominated and selected to play in the North and South Carolina All Star game as well as the East/West All-Star game.

    Sam is very deserving of this award. It is not about who was left off of the team, but who was elected to be on the team. She has done just about everything for NG. Out of necessity, she was forced to play point guard this season and she didn’t miss a beat. All the girl’s mentioned are deserving, but be happy for Sam and wish her well in the game.

    No one ever said that Samantha was not deserving if I am reading this correctly?

  • Tom said,

    I agree. Nobody said that. It would have been nice to see a couple more congrats to Sam as opposed to who was left out.

  • Observer said,

    North South nominees must be a senior and must be nominated by their coach. If your player is not on here, talk to your coach.

  • Dudley Fan said,


    What other couple of players are deserving and should be on this stage?

  • Tom said,

    Desiree and Miranda come to mind right away. I am sure there are others.

  • fan said,

    A player must be nominated by their high school coach. The coaches of the North Carolina team then select their team based off of what they receive from the high school coaches. These other players didn’t get selected or more than likely…simply weren’t nominated. Congrats Sam.
