Sadeek Watt of Grimsley High School is a dynamic slot back and defensive back with great speed and strength

Rashaun Mayfield of Grimsley High School plays DE and Linebacker overwhelming speed and strength will record lots of tackles and sacks this year

DaShaun Jones of Grimsley High School Running back probably most physically gifted backs in the county next to TJ Logan in terms of size and speed.

Should the Grimsley Line produce, this will be a big year for the skill players listed above!

“DaShaun Jones of Grimsley High School Running back probably most physically gifted backs in the county next to TJ Logan in terms of size and speed.” Really? I think Malik Mosley, Reid Baxter, Jamal Petty and Omar Foust might have something to say about that. I’m sure he can play, but hasn’t proved what those mentioned above have accomplished.

Good to see the name of Omar Foust showing up on here…That is another name we can add to the list….In time I think Jones will get the job done at Grimsley and it will need to come this year, but Jones can be a keeper and again, good to see Omar Foust RB from Smith…Coach Rodney Brewington has always talked highly of Omar….

Keep those names coming….Any kickers that we can put on the list? We have Will Johnson from HP Central…Very good on kickoffs….Others we should be watching???

Andy,

I would like to throw out there the targets that Jordan will have to throw to. Tevin Smith (6’2” – 185lbs) back after having a good junior season, Justin Neal (6’3” – 205lbs) who was unable to play last year but has looked great in 7 on 7?s, and then Jalen Gavin (5’9” – 170lbs). Keep an eye on Jalen, he will a true multipurpose player. Superb hands and return skills, and the kid can also play defense if needed. Kemp Young (All Metro OT last year) is moving to TE where he played as a freshman. He has great hands and we already know the kid can block.

Defensively, you can NOT forget about Lorenzo Featherstone (6’6” – 215lbs.) at DE. This kid is good, and I’m not just biased. He is good and will be the next big recruit in our area after TJ is gone. John Lynch will be back at CB after having a good junior year. I think he had 5 interceptions on the season as a backup. AJ Capel (5’11” – 185lbs) played RB for the JV for two years but will be moving to CB to add strength to that defense. He runs a consistent high 4.3 / low 4.4 in the forty.

Page fans keep talking about Lorenzo like he’s the most dominate player in the county. Has the kid even played a varsity snap when it mattered?

Page Fan says:
July 11, 2012 at 3:31 pm
Just Saying,

All I’m saying is come watch and judge for yourself. The recruiters are already on top of him from the camps he has attended. He also got many snaps throughout the season as an 8 quarter player and some snaps throughout the playoffs including the championship game. One game in particular, he faired pretty well against Brock Stadnik from Western Guilford, and Brock was no slouch. Don’t hate, I’m just passing along kids names just like everyone else. All good names thus far from all schools. Now, anymore questions???

Winston Craig will be Ragsdale’s top player and recruit. D-line and tight end

NW Fan says:
July 11, 2012 at 4:01 pm
Reid Baxter… Beside TJ Logan this kid maybe one of the most exciting play makers in the area.

Andy Durham says:
July 11, 2012 at 5:16 pm
Looking forward to seeing Winston Craig of Ragsdale and have been hearing nothing but good things on Featherstone from Page…

Other Whirlies to Watch

James Eggleston – Jr., DT, 6’2?, 295 lbs.
Madison McCollough – Jr., DE, 6?, 230 lbs.
Jaycoa Silva – Jr., DT, 6’3?, 310 lbs.
Grayson Jefferies – Jr., OT, 6’4?, 305 lbs.
Deonte Mangum – Jr., OT, 6’4.5?, 265 lbs
Loren Bibler – Jr., OC, 6?, 265 lbs.
Eric Johnson – Sr., OG, 6’2?, 260 lbs.
Julian Hudnell – Jr., TE, 6’4?, 215 lbs.
Scott Johnston – Jr., Slot/Safety, 6’2?. 180 lbs.

Rumor is Whirlies will be back in the Wing T on Offense and an Aggressive 4-3 on D…

Excited for a new year…

The Top Receivers in the county are those boys from Page High School starting off with the returning starting receiver Tevin Morrison (6’3?-185 lbs) who caught outstanding catches and TD’s and Justin Neal (6’3?- 198 lbs) and also our quick and swift slot receiver Jaylen Gavin (5’11? – 170 lbs) with those three and a outstanding QB Jordan Putnam (6’0? – 180 lbs) that can sling it anywhere!! Defensive teams better be ready for Them Pirates they are going to Repeat from what I hear.

Lorenzo Featherstone may be a good one, but I truly believe the next big recruit in Guilford County after Tj logan is and will be Chris Register of Dudley. Register, is one of the top rising juniors in the state already and is a Big Time Baller. the 6’4 220 pound linebacker has recruiters all over him and was featured on the front page of UNC recruiting website the other day. Since picking up his offer from Clemson in May, his recruitment has really turned up a notch. Register will also be on the offensive side of the ball this year.

GHSFAN,

James Eggleston is a good one…Page hated seeing him move out of district, and I’m sure still wishes they had him…Page always seems to struggle with size and beef, and James definitely would have provided them that for the next two years…

Gfan says:
July 12, 2012 at 2:03 pm
GREAT!!! Any time we can steal talent from Page is a good day. If we can just keep Jake healthy we could have a good year.

Didn’t Grimsley have like 13 sophomores starting on Varsity last year? GHS fan listed a lot of them. Also Will Edwards LB, Tristian Pulliam S and Clark Yow OL. The addition of Loosemore to the staff is a great addition as well.

Alright Grimsley before you get too excited. From what I read you have all these players back from a 3-8 team and a JV program thats won a couple games in a while. You are running the Wing-T, which might be the hardest offense to run, and changing your defense for the how manyth time in a couple years. Your bringing on a coach from Eastern that ran the triple option so he can come in and put in the Wing-T. Last year you had D1 players and we still beat you by a million. I know you have to generate excitement but remember last year you tried by getting on here and saying how you torn Richmond County up in a 7-7 and then we all found out that was just hype. Good luck and I’ll see you mid way through the season.

Brain says:

Why would Grimsley go to the Wing T with no coach on staff that has experience running it? Two schools in the county run it, Southeast and Northwest, and those schools have staffs with coaches that have experience in that system and have been running it for years. It is a tough offense to run. If Grimsey wants a ball control offense, they should line up in the I formation and run a simplified version of a pro style offense. Ask Dudley how playing around with the Wing T worked for them last year. There is a reason the Panthers are not running it this year.

ol’ bawl coach says:

Okay Brain , Rain, whatever your name is,don’t get too high on your horse just yet . . . he might finally throw u. Keep on runnin yo’ mouth, wide open, . . . you never know ,just maybe the whirlies will put sumpin in it 4 U.Watchoutherenow !!!!!!!!!!

I beg your pardon . . . . says:
July 12, 2012 at 11:35 pm
Do you know ALL of the coaches on Grimsley’s staff? I don’t think so . . . . . .C you in time ,big mouth. . . . .

Marquell Cartwright from High Point Andrews at running back is a real good one to keep a eye on.

July 13, 2012 at 9:58 am
Simpson at quarterback? You think so? I’m not so sure…

May be a little competition at Grimsley…

Damon says:
July 13, 2012 at 2:26 pm
Sterling Brooks at LB for SEG
I thought it was Kamron Neese OL…..Cam Gardner?

Andy Durham says:
July 13, 2012 at 2:36 pm
There may be a Kameron Neese too at SEG, but for sure there is a big Cam Gardner…..6’3/240 and real quick feet…..

Here we go with the Grimsley stuff again, last year you had 3 D-I kids and what 6 kids go to the next level and won 3 games. Loosemore may help even though I think he is the next coach there but hey just call that a hunch. Wing T offense with those big kids on OL not a good idea you want kids that can move and move quickly but who knows i have been watching Grimsley for a long long time who knows what is coming out of there

Just Sayin!!! says:
July 13, 2012 at 6:33 pm
Wing T, I formation, Triple Option who cares….Grimsley will still get smoked by Page!!!

Andy,

Played baseball and playing football. I just thought you were transferring from the post I made on the earlier feed. Sorry, I should have been more clear.

Don’t have a dog in the fight but it’s interesting to me that Grimsley fans put positive comments on about their team and made no references to any other team. Page fans just bashed the Grimsley kids.

A lot of what goes on at Grimsley makes no sense I mean they had a 295lb Fullback last year, really???????????

Just Sayin!!! says:
July 15, 2012 at 9:09 pm
Ol hood or backwoods proverb whatever!……Grimsley with a new offense or not. They are still the 4 best team in the Metro at best. Get mad if you want Grimsley fans but the truth hurts!!! The Pirates own yall!!!

*****Lots of good football talk and players still out there and let us know what you really think on this one……*****


  • Billy C.Smith said,

    Juwan Foggie very good wide receiver, and Jermaine Pratt safety both of High Point Central had very good years last year and will be very strong again this year.

  • HPCFan42 said,

    High Point Central had a very young team last year and in the games they lost, it was decided by 7 pts or less other than the Page and Porter Ridge game. I look for this team to be one of the top teams in the county. But we will sit back and be the team no one talks about b/c we will be doing our talking on the field…

  • Just Sayin!!! said,

    HPC not being talked about? Everyone in the State knows who HP Central is because their fans never shut up about them. Every year they say they going to win States and every year they’re the 3rd or 4th best team in the Piedmont.

  • Ben L. Smith said,

    Why haven’t I heard anyone talking about Smith? I ain’t heard a word out of them this offseason. how’s the team looking?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Omar Faust(RB) has been mentioned, other than him we seem to have lost the ‘Eye of the Eagle’……

  • HPCFan42 said,

    Just Sayin!!!!: Since you are in the mood of bashing HPC. Who is your team?

  • Carter Reyonlds said,

    I was at one particular 7 on 7 this summer and it happened to be at SWG when they went against page and I was VERY impressed with southwest guilford they have showed very good passing skills and might have got the best out of page that 7 on 7 i’m sure if you ask coach gillespe he will say the same. I was then asking around and they had A very good group of db’s and wr’s Inclduing Larry Edwards who has been playing varsity since his freshman year and racked up many yards from the line of scrimage,also a name you should put in your head is marquis king this kid can play he is very quick and soft hands that don’t drop balls,and another kid is Aaron Fletcher a very good linebacker not sure what he plays on offense but he is a defense player! all three of these players are great players and will be playing at the next level as I saw these three also at the Mars HIll Camp a couple of weeks ago. But page also looked very good!

  • HS Football said,

    What kind of offense is SW running this season? I heard they were going to spread it out

  • Page Football said,

    NW Guilford @ Page 7 on 7 tonight 6pm
