Thoughts for the Weekend with NG-Weddington and Vanderbilt(Kea/Page) at Elon(Burnett/SA-Coffer/NG) on Sunday
Jack Jenkins, defensive end for the Weddington Warriors, on the Weddington/NG 3-AA football matchup set for Saturday night in Raleigh:
“They(Northern Guilford) definitely have a talented football team,” Jenkins said. “They have some receivers and running backs who are great athletes, but I think that we have more heart and we know how to battle through games, we’re more physical up front. We want it more.”
*****No definitive answer so far on whether C.J. Freeman, Northern’s top runningback, will be able/cleared to play on Saturday night….Freeman suffered concussion-type symptoms, after taking a shot to the head, in last Friday’s home game with the Nighthawks and Chapel Hill….The word on the street is that most feel Freeman will be free to play on Saturday, but nothing has been set in stone/concrete as of this afternoon……*****
Paris Kea(Page High School) and her Vanderbilt Commodores(6-2) at Elon on Sunday afternoon at 2pm to face the Phoenix(4-2)…..Phoenix ready to greet Paris and her Vandy teammates with Shay Burnett(right at 10ppg for Elon) as a freshman coming out of Southern Alamance High School and the Phoenix also have Sam Coffer(Northern Guilford) near 10ppg, on the welcoming committee….Shay and Sam set to welcome Paris back to the Triad on Sunday afternoon at Elon University…..Going to be a major homecoming when Kea comes back to the Triad and I wonder if the “E” will give Kea a key to “G”(gymnasium/athletic center), on the Elon campus……Lots of battles, back when Burnett and Kea would see each other in major Metro 4-A Conference clashes on the high school circuit…..
