Who would you list as the top players from each school from over the years, as the two teams get set to meet for the 51st time is it, later on this week……..

Page, would you say the top player to come through there was Tripp Welborne? Or was it Haywood Jeffires? What about Todd Ellis? Some might say it was Jeff Dunn……That’s four names and for a fifth? What about Marvin Johnson or was it John Newman???
(Is #18 James Summers about ready to move into that Top Five at Page, if he keeps on having the type of year he and the team are having, or is it to soon to call?)

Any way give us your top five if you will…..

And for Grimsley do we take Ruben Davis as the tops? Would it be Delton Hall? What about Ethan Albright? Maybe even more recent with Zach Maynard? Or was it Mike or Rod Elkins?

Who is the top player ever from each school and if you have time, spot us up with your All-Time Top Five?????

Last year we tried to come up with a complete team and this year we need to narrow our choices down to the Top Player Ever from each school and post a Top-Five to keep it a little more conceise…….

#1 Page=’s Tripp Welborne?
#1 Grimsley=’s Ruben Davis?

    Don’t forget Lee Rouson (Page) University of Colorado couple of Super Bowl Rings with the Giants. Also like to add that 4 of the 5 you named for Page played at Lewis Rec Ctr. If you don’t think Page was loaded in the 80’s think about this. Page, like all city schools then was only 10-12. When Stafford Moser arrived at Page he played in 4 straight State Title games. Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Football again the next year. Amazing.

    True about the 80s being a big year for Page. Wasn’t there a Ron, or Rod Elkins who played qb for Page around ’81? Used to hear that name often. And, Grimsley had an excellent quarterback named Brian Herndon around that time. There was an interesting article on Brian when he played for the East/West All Star team, circa ’82. Pretty sure he attended ECU under scholarship as a Pirate qb. I hope my memory serves me well here – I’m goin back a ways guys!

    Page would be Michael Brooks a linebacker that went pro from the ACC. Grimsley would be Zach Maynard when you look at what he is doing today in the PAC 12. Those are the best from each school.

    What about the quarterback before Zach that led Grimsley to the playoffs and Zach had to back him up. Shouldn’t he be named the best?

  • Andy said,

    Would that quarterback have been Josh Stewart? There was Josh Stewart, Aaron Stewart, Jason Stewart, Stan Stewart and Seth Stewart…..Josh and Seth went to Grimsley and the other Stewart brothers all went to Western Guilford……

    Josh QB’d Grimsley in the playoffs, but Robert Lane had to lead Grimsley in the 4-A Title Game vs. Greenville Rose when Josh got hurt……Robert Lane was a very good all-around athlete too, but Zach Maynard is looking to exceed them all now in college at Cal……
