  • what? said,

    jordan perkins plays both private and public school ball? isnt he the kid at gds?

  • Don Moore said,

    We didn’t edit the Write-In Votes, except where there was a name misspelling or full name instead of initials. I’m surprised we didn’t get more Off-The-Wall Write-Ins.

  • Xxxxx said,

    Bogus numbers smh

  • Cecil smith said,

    Your ratings must be low because This is a joke someone need to be fired at greensboro sports. I guess you have selected limited viewers. People are saying your numbers were drastically inflated each year. Cannot trust anything you read these days. #makechanges#increase viewers this is probably most exciting comment you ever got. #truthhurts.

  • Don Moore said,

    As we pointed out this was a popularity contest, people could vote as many times as they wanted – just like American Idol. Several schools and groups figured that out and happily played along. We even added a Write-In Feature and it was very successful as TC Daniels got enough friends to vote him as #1 – winning by a few hundred votes.

  • Lance Conney said,

    Just glance at this read comments and just to give an example of What Cecil is talking about. It is hard to believe that the coach of Wesleyan get 38% and Wesleyan player is way below that knowing how supportive the student body at Wesleyan is. Don is just blowing smoke. I disappointed in this, but I will let the family and coach know about the lack of support they recieve from their local newspaper on purpose because Andy has let it be know that he does not care of Wesleyan because Theo went there versus Greensboro Day and refused to give him any recognition unless it is negative. As a sports fan very disappointed in Greensboro sports shows a lack of character and promotion of kids to do well within our community.

  • AAU COACH said,

    How come Imani is a distant away from Kea and behind Rouse? This is a joke.

  • SWG said,

    Why does Briana only have 6% of the vote when she beat Kea?

  • Don Moore said,

    If anyone wants to look at the results, I am more than willing to let them have access to the raw data. I can email them a CD with the votes on it. The cost would be $10 per CD to cover shipping, handling and the cost and time needed to copy and burn the file to a CD.

  • Fan said,

    Obviously the player got a low percentage cause nobody really supported the player by voting for them. Blame yourselves for not voting as much.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Votes are what get the job done and if people are too lazy to vote, there is not too much we can do about that…

    I thought it was a pretty simple process….

    Maybe I came from the wrong school….Where I came from we never believed in giving anybody anything, you had to earn it….

    Times have changed and maybe it is time to change with the times…..Only time will tell……

  • baller said,

    Way to go Andy! Make them earn it!

  • Tom said,

    They explained how this worked. What more do you want? It is a popularity contest and it just takes a group of people to get behind a player/coach and stuff the ballot box. It is supposed to be fun. Relax!

  • FOS said,

    Agree with Tom. My guy did not win, but come on and realize what this is.

  • STACY said,


    Are you all saying that this is bogus?
