    Speaking of top players, what happened to James Summers? EDU listed him as a signee out of Hinds (Miss.) JC in the spring, but he’s no longer on the Pirates’ roster at the ECU website. Did he not complete his academic work at the JUCO? If that’s the case, what a waste?

  • Andy Durham said,

    I called East Carolina about James last week and left a message with their Director of Football Operations(Overton) inquiring about James Summers and the recorded message told me if I was a parent or a coach, the NCAA would not allow them to call me back…

    I told them that I was not a parent or a coach, and told them who I was and they still did not call me back…

    James Summers is at ECU and was in Summer School, but he is still not on the 2015 East Carolina Football Roster and can not play at ECU until he is on that roster….

  • Andy Durham said,

    We will be adding names to the list, so send more names our way and that will give you a chance to decide on your Top Five….

    Looking this over by position…

  • Dudley Fan said,

    Dacquari Wilson Dudley high school 6’3 280 rising junior made metro 4-A all conference. Has looks from Wake Forest ,Tennesse ,NC State and,UNC

  • Dudley Fan said,

    Postion is OL comment above^

  • Andy Durham said,

    Yes, I posted him at OL and we are getting some good comments and names coming our way and with some of the linemen and other some kids at other positions, their names can go unheard of, outside of their home base, if we don’t get them some attention on here….

    We learn a lot about the players and their teams as begin to circulate this information….

    On most of the names that we receive, I go back and look them up on MaxPreps, from last season, just to get early bio info….

  • Andy Durham said,

    Headed out to the ball game in a few and will back in here for updates later on tonight…

  • Triadwatch said,

    Andy you forgot us lonely special team position players in punter and kicker any good ones in area you know of?

  • NW Football said,

    NW Guilford may have 2 of the top QBs in the area. Jake Smith is one the other is Caleb Homol. There is one heck of a QB battle going on over off NW School rd.

  • NH Footna said,

    Josh Covington Northern Guilford. Bit undersized height wise but great lead blocker on runs. OL

  • alum said,

    Myles White should be considered as an all around ATHLETE he could possibly play both sides of the ball and succeed!!! Andy that Maynard kid at Northern any relationship to Zack & Keenan? Also that Connell Young kid is going to be a problem to deal with!

  • NWG said,

    One of the Top 2 WRs in Guilford County is Jr Thomas Hennigan. He led the entire area in receiving last year as a sophomore. Coach Rolfes does a great job getting the ball to Hennigan. It seems that the entire offense went around Thomas last year. This year we have more weapons on the offensive side of the ball so I expect his numbers to come down a little but he will still be making huge plays.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Harrison Kiser if the first name that comes to mind when I think of kickers and punters….Now a senior, has been regular kicker at Page since his freshman year…

    Harrison Kiser….Probably some other out there, but he is the first name that comes to mind…

  • Andy Durham said,

    Will be adding all of the most recent players to the list in the morning…

  • Andy Durham said,

    Not sure if Max Maynard is related to Zach and Keenan, good question…

  • e24sharkin said,

    max Maynard is no relation to Zack maynard.

  • Andy Durham said,

    When you see Max for the first time, you’ll say this kid looks like P.J. Hairston, back in P.J.’s younger days…

  • HORNETS said,

    Carolina Preps reporting that Coach Causey has stepped down as the Head Football coach at Western Guilford to take the AD job. Losing the HC a week before the season starts is a big loss.

  • Dudley Fan said,

    Some DL’s to watch will be Anaz Morehead 52 (6’1 290) and D.J. Aikens 54 (6’2 280) for Dudley both have looked really good at DT all spring and summer and played well during the season last year both starters for the Panthers during last years 10-0 season they will do a great job clogging the middle this season for the panthers.
