  • Rob said,

    Bryce Walker Ragsdale

  • NW said,

    Mark Murphy NW

  • SE Parent said,

    Elliot Rawls SEG
    Justin Hooks SEG

  • NG Parent said,

    I was at the NG vs NW game and Mark Murphy was impressive! He had to lead his team and tackles that night and had several TD saving tackles (he once tackled CJ Freeman at the 2yd line after chasing him down from 10yds behind when CJ was at the 35 – that’s FAST).

  • Andy Durham said,

    We will update this list in the morning so if you have more names, add them in until them….Some good names that you have posted here already….

    Here about a good runningback this morning that is quietly having a good year and that is Rashad Bovian at Western Guilford….154 yards on the ground last week vs. Ledford and over 500 yards for the season rushing for the Hornets……

  • fb said,

    Jesse Michaux SEG

  • Duryea Taylor said,

    My top defensive player would be Mark Murphy, Free Safety at Northwest Guilford. According to Maxpreps he has 42 tackles through 5 games which is the 2nd BEST in the state for free safeties. I expect more to come from this talented football player.

  • Se said,

    Doesnt get alot of attention because nobody really throws to his side but devon billingsley SEG..look him uuoup on youtube..beast

  • Witness said,

    The whole Dudley defense! (Albert McLean, Naeza Fewell, Khalil Vance, Tong Majak, Mykael Martin) all of them will be playing on Saturday after this season

  • Best Overall Player said,

    Honestly this might sound crazy but Rick Mack is the best overall player in the county right now he has put up stats with his HORRIBLE offensive line and on defensive he is special don’t really see kids like him really deserves some offers he reminds me a lot of that guy who plays at UNCC he is thier slot i think number 10? hes name is Austin Duke and they both have a very similar play style and they are about the same size really like the heart of Rick really deserves offers

  • PAGE Student said,

    I think Marlon Petty, Jr. EG should be here. In five games he’s racked up 59 tackles, 7 of which for a loss. A forced fumble and recovery and overall leadership at the now undefeated Eastern Guilford Wildcats. And all this coming from a PAGE student.

  • dudley football said,

    Khalil Vance should for sure be in this conversation he leads this loaded dudley defense in tackles and is second in sacks behind big albert mcclain this kid is the “real deal” as they call him and should for sure be on this list

  • john said,

    Xan Swaim Ragsdale
    Brian Flaskrud Ragsdale
    Down year for ragsdale but these guys are the heart of that D

  • JUST SAYIN' said,

    Northern Coaching Staff – only thing that could stop Northern from winning in 2-1/2 years!!!

  • Tiger said,

    Sidney Thompson and Nick Elliott are by far the best defensive players on Ragsdale team by far!! Without these 2 guys, it’s ugly!!

  • NW Parent said,

    NW-Jon Sugg, DL
    NW-Mark Murphy, S
    NW-Kevin Henry, CB

  • Dwight Tatum said,

    #38 Reggie Tatum OLB Page. Ask about him!

  • BisonPride said,

    HPC-Germaine Pratt, S
    HPC-Jerry Jenkins, LB
    HPC-Josh Wilson, LB
    HPC-Jerriel Simmons, DL

  • NWG said,

    Myles Mitchell from NWG deserves a mention in you list has made some great tackles and excellant man coverage against some of the best WR’s in the area.

  • HS Football said,

    Yes Myles Mitchell is having a pretty good year for NW too.

    Congrats to Johnny Sugg for NW Guilford on being selected to the NC Shrine Bowl Team!
