Looking ahead toward the football season and the Metro 4-A Conference

Posted by Andy Durham on August 6, 2013 at 7:00 pm under High School | 18 Comments to Read

The season is just two weeks away from Friday and time to start looking ahead at how some of these conferences might turn out….

Close to home why not start with the Metro 4-A and with all of the players that Dudley has coming back on defense you just about have to give them the edge….Page has been at the top of the Metro for the past several years, but it may be harder for Page to grab that coveted top spot this season….

Page lost a bunch of starters on both sides of the ball and Dudley has 8-9 starters back on defense and defense is what wins games in all sports in the end…..

Don’t know a whole lot about the new Smith team yet, but we do know the numbers are down at Grimsley, although the Whirlies have a very good QB in Jake Simpson and a very experienced offensive line up front led by senior Clark Yow….

Jonathan Lloyd from Southern Alamance could well end up being your Player of the Year in the Metro and we know Lorenzo Featherston(Page) and Chris Register(Dudley) will make some for that honor if they both can stay healthy and Lloyd will have to stay healthy too….Jalen Gavin from Page could make a run for POY if he had a real large year on both sides of the football….

Southeast Guilford will a hard nosed running team and I have been hearing a lot about one of their linebackers, Zach Michauex, I think it is….

What about one of these orders of finish in the Metro 4-A????

Dudley
Page
Southeast
Southern Alamance
Grimsley/Smith

Could see:
Dudley
Page
Southeast
Grimsley
Smith
Southern Alamance

Could see:
Page
Dudley
Southeast
Smith
Southern Alamance
Grimsley…..

One way to break it all down and most will probably agree on this….

Dudley, Page and Southeast in the Top Three of Metro 4-A
Smith, Grimsley and Southern Alamance in the Bottom Three of the Metro 4-A…

You may have a play and have something to say on this one, or it may be too early for some and they may be waiting for Week One to hit…..

  • Joe Bill Butler said,

    Southeast Guilford is going to fool a bunch of you this year. They will knock off both Page and Dudley. This will be the Falcons year and they will win the Metro Conference. Southeast #1, Page #2, Dudley #3 and after that you can pick them any way you want. Only three teams will go the playoffs and that will be Southeast, Page and Dudley. This will be the year of the Falcons.If you have any extra change put it right here on this pick and see if it don’t happen.

  • falcon parent said,

    Jus sayin what a joke you are. You don’t think the paper writes about Northern? Or Dudley? Get out of your fantasy world.

  • HS FB FAN said,

    MICHAUX HAS BEEN GETTING PLAYING TIME WITH THE VARSITY SINCE HIS FRESHMAN YEAR. NOT TO TALL, HAS GOOD SPEED, AND ALOT OF HEART.
    HARD TO SAY ABOUT SE. THEY HAVE SOME TALENT, BUT THEIR RECEIVERS AND DEFENCE IS GOING TO HAVE TO STEP UP.
    GOOD RB’S AND QB IS AS GOOD AS ANYONE IN THE COUNTY.

  • Vince said,

    Lets hope we have two or three good teams in this conference.They may not have to play each other right away in playoffs with the pod system gone.
