*****We left out five of our teams and no dis on them, this is just the way it seems to be shaping up right now…It made it much easier for our Pollsters to produce when using the same ten teams in all five polls and it does give you something to look at and to think about and some teams like to be flying under the radar at this time of year……*****

    It gets foggy from there
    Lots of teams who can be in that mix from 15 on down who will have good seasons

    Looking at 6 and 7, sets up a very interesting scrimmage match up for defending 4AA State Champions Greensboro Page and Charlotte Independence down at the Rocky River Jamboree down in Charlotte on August 10th at 6pm.

  • Andy Durham said,

    On the Colson Herdon case, we are hearing Colson instead of Coalson, or Coleson, so for now we will go with Colson….That is what Mike Ellis of the Jamestonw News was telling us today…..Colson Herndon, but there is another Coalson out there somewhere…..We have heard that name before…..

    Ragsdale Tigers:Colson Herndon and we do expect to be hearing that name a lot this season and some are saying the #42 is one to watch out for this year……

    Page or Northern Guilford #1???

  • Northern Loaded????? said,

    Northern loaded???? Besides Logan who do yall have? QB’s are very average….WR’s besides Logan are even more average. Line will be pretty decent but other than Logan it stops there.

  • DUDLEY said,

    Them Panthers might have something to say about Northern being #1 in the County. See you in a few weeks!!!!!!!!!

  • Anyone Heard of HP said,

    Andy,How are the HP schools looking Southwest guilford in particular I haven’t heard any thing coming from that way since last year how are they shaping up?

  • HS football said,

    Let’s review this again after the Sept. 7th game!!! Northern plays Page, Dudley, & Northwest it’s first 3 games. Has a State Champion ever started out the next year 0-3??? Yet again they could be 3-0.

  • Damon said,

    I think I’ll stay away from trying to rank all these guys this early in the season. I will say that SEG at minimum should be ranked no lower than 3rd and above Dudlely.

  • FOOTBALL TIME!!!!! said,

    SE Guilford ranked 3rd? Get out of here…..Ragsdale, Page, NW Guilford, Dudley, HP Central, and Northern all ahead of SE

  • Yeah how about SW said,

    Does anyone know anything about SW I have’nt heard anything from over that way? what about you andy?

  • Andy Durham said,

    SWG has Jason Caldwell at QB and Larry Edwards at RB and we will see them in the Jamboree next Friday at Rockingham County….HP Central is loaded with defense as they have Rubin Crosby, Jermaine Pratt and #42……Don’t know much at all about HP Andrews, but they do have great athletes each and every year….

    Is the Smith Jamboree next Saturday night???? Usually is that Saturday in August….

  • Swg? said,

    I thought Jason Caldwell was their QB????? And yes this larry kid can play I rember 4 years back when this team won confrence in middle school for football and back then larry edwards was the man! You should also see a big Linebacker in Aaron Fletcher I think hes returing also but who knows about everybody else

  • Andy Durham said,

    Sorry about that and I meant QB for Caldwell….Lots of B’s flying around the nest today….

  • Damon said,

    Football Time,

    We’ll talk again week 7!

  • FOOTBALL TIME!!!!! said,

    What happens in Week 7? BTW You guys at SE say the same thing every year….We have the best running game, we have the best RB’s in the State! Were finally better than Page and Dudley Lol…..Truth is you guys are still no better than 3rd in the Conference. Once teams put 8 and 9 in the Box and get you guys in 3rd and 8 yall cant throw the ball….Game over!!!!

  • to Football Time said,

    SEG always has talented athletes that can play football but the players don’t call the plays in. It’s not that they CAN”T throw the ball, somebody doesn’t call that play in. Too bad for the kids that by game 5, everybody knows exactly what they are going to do before they ever line up.

  • Falcon95' said,

    No SE team in the past 25 years can touch our 95′ team, just ask Norwood, he will tell you! all these great running backs SE has had couldnt touch ours, kid ran a 4.29 flat, ran for 2000+ yards… all state, East West player, oh forgot to mention, baseball was his best sport. My point is this, Norwood knew how to mix it up, PERIOD! I agree with the post above, SE has great athletes, but everyone knows whats coming…. truly sad to watch. Im not trying to dis SE, I wish them the best of luck year in and year out…. I will be at several games this year hoping this is our year. It helped that our line averaged 6’2 280, great team with great kids and coaches. FALCON PRIDE!

    Answer – NG has plenty of athletes…9 starters on “D” return from last years state championship team….5 of those 9 started in the 2010 championship game as sophmores…most of those kids play on both sides of the ball…bottom line though – if you can’t stop TJ Logan why does it matter who else NG has?

  • Eagles 04 said,

    What’s the deal on Smith not getting any love from anyone? How many starters do we have coming back? When and where are we scrimmaging? Who do we open the season with? If it was Dudley everyone would be kicking in the door at Greensboro sports.com trying to interview Coach Davis…..Why no love for Coach Brewington and Staff? Is their a Jamboree going on this year at Smith? Andy can you call somebody over at Smith and let us Fans know something.

  • NorthernBaller said,

    Northern may not have another marque player other than LOGAN but trust me they have athletes that will step up. They play their game better than anyone and they are on track to defend their reputation as an elite program in the County. Talk all you want but they have put up when others have had to shut up! See you all soon!

  • NorthernBaller said,

    Nothern is one of the better programs in this area. They have the coaching to go along with the talent. TJ Logan is more than enough to contend with in any game. Others will step up, trust me on that. Just make sure you don’t bust assignments and don’t get out coached by Johnny and the boys! Put up or shut up time is about here!
