*****Bringing this one back from last week, minus/sans the previous comments and this will give you high school football fans some more time to talk about this topic and we will have a new one up for you for this week, by Friday….*****
(Wonder what the football will be like at the new Piedmont Classical School/Charter School, once they get the ball rolling there….The students can apply to attend this school and they must be accepted to attend/ be enrolled here.)
Looking toward High School Football for 2015:Bring on the Backs
Just looking today at some of the names of the key runningbacks that will be carrying the load in Guilford County for the upcoming 2015 season…..
C.J. Freeman(Northern Guilford)…Could be the tops and could be looking at a banner year…Has committed to the University of South Carolina
Connell Young(Dudley)…Has offers from East Carolina, Syracuse and many other schools…
Kyle Finnie(Northwest Guilford)/Thomas Hennigan(Northwest Guilford)….Finnie one of the main Viking backs and Hennigan a hybrid players that can line up at WR and also can take carries from the backfield….
Nigel Thomas(Southern Guilford)/Amon Harris(Southern Guilford)….Lots of speed with Thomas and he nearly hit 1,000 yards last season in the same backfield with Reggie Gallaspy…
Chavis Little(High Point Central)/Geoffrey Wall(High Point Central)….Could be one of the best one-two combos in the state….HP Central will not have to throw the ball much this season, unless they feel like it…
Micah Gafford(Page)/Javon Leake(Page)….Both will be juniors and Leake is the big back and Gafford the small back and they both loaded with talent and add them in there with Diondre Overton and Will Jones and you have a very good mix…
*****There’s at least 10 good ones to get you going and I’ll turn it over to masses for the next set of names and who is the big name or names that we are leaving out here???*****
Southeast Guilford always has a ton of good backs and here’s at least three that you should expect to see this Fall for the Falcons:
Steven Thomas, Steven Baldwin, Garrett Church…C.J McThay another back, now back with SEG….
Kids to look out for from Grimsley[Curtis Martin, Caleb & Micah Williams, junior Brelin Fason-Walden, and senior Malik Stimpson],
and we remember Curtis Martin from his days at Kiser and he did very well there, the Williams twins are good backs, not sure if Brelin Fason-Walden is an RB or WR, and if Stimpson moves into the backfield, he could be a pure threat too…He ran for a lot of yards back when he was playing QB in 2013…
Northeast Guilford has seniors Jonathan James Patterson and Justin Hartsfield at RB and the Rams also have a junior Tobias Flyod at RB….Depth at runningback for Northeast Guilford going into this season….
+++++For Northeast Guilford they have Jeremiah Praylor, Chaz Voliva and Joshua Patterson competing for the QB spot….+++++
