  • 77 Hornet said,

    What about the head & asst. coaches and how many years they’ve been there?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Throw out a few of the newer ones and let others touch base on the rest…

    Coach Chris Eggers 1st year at Grimsley
    Coach White 1st year at Northeast Guilford
    Coach ‘Nat’ Norris 2nd year at Hig Point Andrews
    Coach Morgan 3rd or 4th year at High Point Central
    Coach White 2nd year at Eastern Guilford
    Coach Scott Davis at Wesleyan
    Coach Gessell at HPCA
    Coach Luke Oates at Vandalia…..
    and there is a bunch more and those are a few of the newer coaches and some from the private schools….

  • Tigers said,

    Andy,
    Zach Hodges is a sophomore in college. Also, Ragsdale has 6 to 7 players better than Lipke.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Does Hodges have a brother??? Somebody has a brother on that team from the previous days….

    Lipke could be man, but if not who are the other six???

  • RHS said,

    No, Zack doesn’t have a brother. And there is Ben Fischer, Niko Orphanedes, and Kenen Lynn are a few more to watch out for on the Tigers team.

  • RHS said,

    And Matt Orth is out for the year because of Tommy John surgery

  • Andy Durham said,

    We were hearing that news on Matt Orth last week when we first hit this post and that is bad news for Matt and the Cowboys…

    Maybe it was Horkey that had a younger brother, maybe not….Duncan and Walt Sparks and was that it??? We know Walt is three years now at Richmond, but he was at Ragsdale and part of that brother connection for the Tigers….

  • NW Viking said,

    Matt Horkey has a younger brother Ben who is also a good player; I believe he is a sophomore this year. Tough Piedmont 4A this year could go to anybody… Ragsdale, HPC, East Forsyth, SWG, NWG, maybe even Glenn if they can get it going. A lot of good players in this area. Looking forward to the season!!

  • Spikescoach said,

    Tigers,

    You must be a high school player.. If not your a complete idiot!. The kid can play if he is playing for Bankhead and the Golden Spikes. Who ar you anyways…

  • Bazela said,

    Anyone that has the cash can play for The GOLDEN SPIKES,

  • Mike E. said,

    There is another Hodges on the team but no relation to Zach…Avery Hodges is a junior and will catch and see some time on the mound. Was the starter behind the plate last year.

    Lipke is a sophomore and started every game at second base last year as a freshman. Was solid all year in the field and struggled some at the plate, but will be much improved this year.

    Sparks back after missing last year after surgery. Will be a welcome addition at the plate.

    Only lost two starters from last year’s team. Matt Horkey, a junior, is a two year staring pitcher, while younger brother, Ben, a sophomore, saw limited varsity action last year. Solid infielder.

    Cesar Trejo, sophomore and Niko Orfanedes, junior, started all year at third and short last year. Ben Fischer, a junior, was superb in centerfield and with the bat.

    Bryson Harrald, outfielder; Kennan Lynn and Tim Ambrose, pitchers and Brandon Walker, outfielder are also back from last year.

    Joe Pantuso, who started in the outfield last year, is still recovering from knee surgery from an injury suffered during football season.

    Tough news on Matt Orth. He will definitely be missed by the Cowboys, but Coach Reid Holmes will have his team ready and they will still be solid. Good luck to Matt in his rehab.

    PTC will be an exciting Conference once again this year.

  • Gbcprep said,

    Bazela,

    Keep your kid in Colt Ball as obviously you have No Clue!

  • Sick of this said,

    Unfortunately Bazela is right, the Spikes program costs allot of money and with that program money is what matters. Favoritism is played to make the program look stronger than what it is and development only consists with what you can pay for…..
    Secondly, why dont we call this the board for daddy’s to promote their kids…..

  • theyre right!! said,

    well to say that the statement is true have money you can play. baseball isnt where it was 15-20 years ago you have to pay to play and the less fortunate kids are forced to play with teams where some players are not good. but usually that kid turns out to be pretty good because they have to work a little harder.you see on most teams. so the money part is a big issue and as you know those kids that play on those teams where it cost a arm and a leg ,some want make their hs team and some or most are not that good.its the money and reason why they play on those teams.sorry to say that

  • ORYA said,

    Look for NW to be the team to beat this year.They have some talent…

  • caldwell academy? said,

    dont they have 3or4 kids from caldwell academy that were not allowed to come back to school for some reason or another?they are not kids that came through the system or that high school. thats the word on the streets.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Coach Bozarth would know about Caldwell and he is a NEG-grad that has a very good job with that Caldwell program and the site here is all about promoting the kids, that is the reason for the Sports season…Trying to get kids the chance to be seen and heard of….

    We help put P.J. Hairston on the map here 4-5 years ago and look at him now and doing real good for himself in hoops at UNC….

    We can’t do it all, but we try and we do help….All of those interviews we do with the kids while they are in high school helps prepare them for college….

    Hit the baseball fields hard today….The way the weather looks, you should have a great day to be out doors and take full advantage of it….

  • drob1211 said,

    Andy,
    You have done a great job with this website to help promote the athletes in this area! Keep up the good work!!

  • Bazela said,

    GBCPrep, Keep the cash coming, because if you have it you can pay and play there to.

  • NW said,

    Heard Sanfillipo not playing BB at NW, noone else from Caldwell came to NW>

  • outsider said,

    2 names missing from Northeast are returning seniors left handed pitcher Tyler Mericka and infielder Austin Elmore

  • former standout said,

    Piedmont Triad will be the toughest baseball conference in the state this year…..better than CPC better than Southwestern….and far better than the Metro…..

  • pagebaseball said,

    Page also has a lot of seniors returning

    Qushon Morgan
    Zach Sutphin
    Tommy Rapp
    Eric Kelly
    Andrew Lamore

    all these kids can play. thay have been together for a while now. they are a team everyone needs to keep an eye on this year

  • calvin said,

    Sanfillipo did move to NW from Caldwell and is playing baseball. The center fielder from Caldwell transferred to High Point Christian.
