    Andy, any word on how the other scrimmages from last night went?

  • NW said,

    News – NW scored at will and looked great on offense. WFMY has coverage on the net.

  • Andy said,

    From what I heard, Dudley did a good job against Mount Tabor and the Dudley Panthers have two equally talented QB’s in Richard Hayes and Adrian Slade and both are left-handed if my left eye is still working right……

    Dudley at Burlington on Friday for Williams, Cummings, and Eastern Alamance…..Should be a real good scrimmage with a lot of speed out ther on the field……

    Add Shawn Workinger and Will Henry to the list of Page defensive leaders………

  • Andy said,

    We hope Joe B. will send us some info on the Page scrimmage……

  • NW Viking Fan said,

    The NW defense was also very impressive last night against NEG. Very nice showing all around and everyone appeared to get a lot of playing time.

    Page looked FANTASTIC tonight! The actual start time was a little delayed (due to the rain) but it looked as if the weather had no effect on the Pirates. As far as competition, if Page had to play any one of those teams within the next 24-48 hours and they played like they did tonight, Page would come away with the “W”.

    Trust me…Page has too many offensive weapons and they ALL were ready and if I’m not mistaken, they won all of their scrimmages tonight. I’ll tell you this, I don’t know too much about Sun Valley, but I think we’ll be hearing a lot from them this year. Independence looks m-i-g-h-t-y small but that lil’ #21…(whew) he’s got a lot of heart and doesn’t hesitate to run into traffic! Davie County was well…Davie County. Crest has a huge “O” line!! I almost asked to see the birth certificates of some of those guys! I also noticed a few of the Butler and Mallard Creek players in the stands scopin’ everything out! Lol!!

    Get ready for an exciting season, people!

    Here are a couple of snip its from what other guys are saying on other sites..

    “Northwestern had the best quarterback
    Page had the best athlete – their quarterback
    Crest had the best defensive lineman
    South Mecklenburg had the best offensive lineman
    Overall Northwestern seemed to be the best team. But hard to tell because of the format of the scrimmage…”

    “Page looked good. Man their first offensive series against South Mecklenburg I think they scored on almost every play!”

    “Page looked to me to be head and shoulders above the rest.Big, fast, strong, eager.
    Sun Valley looked strong, ran all over Indy (it seemed like).
    Agree on Crest backs.
    Encouraging signs for South Meck defense, historically a weakness. O-line created some lanes for 20 and the other backs.
    Northwestern, not sure I see the “7” in the CO Sweet 16 ranking…didn’t look that strong IMHO although the QB did look good as mentioned above- he’s a tall kid.”

    “Northwestern, Page, and Crest were probably the top level when I watched them. Just not really sure what coaches were trying to achieve and how much time they wanted certain kids to play. Everyone has a scrimmage agenda and it is not always to look the best.”

    By the way, Page ended up playing South Meck, Sun Valley, Crest and Northwestern, SC.. because of the late start due to the downpour.

    Beat South Meck and Sun Valley, If I remember correctly tied Crest 1-1 with a Rogers long TD run, and also held NWern, SC scoreless in a 0-0 stalemate. Northwestern threw the ball on all 10 plays against Page, and 6 of them in a row were thrown at Ed Britt. On all 6 of those plays, Britt either defended the pass with bat downs or he made a solid tackle behind the line of scrimmage or as the receiver caught it. He had a nice jump on a slant and batted it down. He had an interception against Sun Valley and was step for step with South Carolina committed WR Jody Fuller with a very nice play on a ball in the endzone to deny fuller of a TD catch. Great all around night for Britt and the Pirates.
