Posted by Andy Durham on August 3, 2016 at 8:26 pm under High School | Comments are off for this article

The rains came today and Ragsdale had to give up the outside practice and head indoors and when we drove by Dudley HS, the Panthers were going at it there in the rain and as we made our way Highway 29 North toward Northeast Guilford High School, the rain let up and pretty much just stopped as we hit the Northeast Guilford campus…

Lots of rain on one side of town and none on the other side….You go toward Jamestown and it was heavy rain, but you get up there on Hicone Road, no rain….

We had Five Questions for Northeast Guilford coach Jason Lippard today, as we hit the Rams’ practice….

*****Questions for Coach Lippard:*****
1)The player on your team, that most reminds you of you?
Jordan Smith…Left Tackle and a senior…
2)The record for 2016, realistically speaking, what should the regular season record be??
We want to make the playoffs and with the JV team we had last year(7-3) for 2015, it is time for us to get back to the playoffs again and we wouldn’t mind matching or topping what the JV team did last year and those kids are ready, since they have been there and tasted that winning(7-3) success…
3)If you weren’t coaching football this Summer, what would you be doing???
Playing Golf
4)Whose hands do you have to put the ball into, and say to that player, “You Must Lead Us”????
Gerald Simpson and he is the man that will get his hands on the ball, first and foremost, since he is our QB….But we have a chart with several players names on it and they have to get their touches in order for us to be successful….
5)More than any other team on your schedule, who do you want to beat?????
The team really wants Eastern Guilford and Northern Guilford….EG is right in our backyard and Northern grew from out of our district when the expansion of the schools hit…

Sophomores that have to step for the Rams include, Quan’dra Clagon, David Olla and Ramon Darby….NEG has a scrimmage set for next Wednesday August 10 at NEG with Smith, Mount Tabor and Durham Riverside coming to Hicone Road….On Friday August 12 NEG will be at West Davidson High School for the NewBridge Bank Jamboree to face off with North Davidson and Lexington….
