CLICK HERE for the Week One Top Ten High School Football Poll from the News and Record…..(Joe Sirera and Spencer Turkin)
Dudley #1 and Eastern Guilford #2 and see all above when you CLICK….

All games set to kickoff at 7:30 Friday night August 18….
Here is how they will line up this Friday night:

Eastern Guilford at Northeast Guilford….at Bill Bookout Stadium and this might be the Top Game in the County for Guilford County teams, this Friday night….New coach for NEG, Earl Bates…Dominique Graves for EG, the difference-maker and Brevin Allen, big key for NEG…
Northwest Guilford at Smith…..Another top-notch Guilford County meeting and they are supposed to be playing this game at the new and improved Claude Manzi Stadium, on the Smith HS campus….Tre Turner(NWG) senior season and time to stand up and stand out…New coach for NWG, Kevin Wallace…Good QB set to lead Smith, in sophomore Jordan Williams….
Northern Guilford at Grimsley….Same coaches Eric Westberg for NG and Coach Darryl Brown for Grimsley and ought to be a good one at Jamieson Stadium….Nile Harris for GHS and Ford Moser for NG, among the names to watch….
Southern Guilford at Ragsdale….Not sure who to watch yet for SG, but for Ragsdale, keep an eye out for Malachi Manness and Devan Boykin….New coach for SG with Jason ‘Bear’ Bradley taking over….New coach for Ragsdale Tigers in Johnny Boykin and he knows this bunch well…
At Kenneth Miller Stadium in Jamestown, N.C.
Southeast Guilford at T. Wingate Andrews….SEG with Douglas, Hackett, Guy and Love among the leaders and a new Falcon coach in Kennedy Tinsley, Coach Clark is leading TWA…..At Simeon Stadium, in High Point with Kris Walser and Coach Daryl Steele on the call from GreensboroSports Radio 2….
*****I think that is it among the Guilford County meetings….*****
Non-conference action vs. Non-County teams….
Dudley at WS Carver…..Heard Carver is down and there might be a running clock late in this game….Dudley has more athletes than Larry Fedora does and Dudley has a good read on their QB and RB spots and Larry at UNC is still looking….
Page at Davie County…..New coach at Page in Jared Rolfes and Page should be in good shape with some good talent and depth….
I think Davie County is playing at a brand new stadium this season…Last year(2016) closed out their old school and stadium….
Morehead at Western Guilford….Hornets have a new coach in Bryant Miller and with Edrick Purnell running the show at QB, WG ought to be at least quick and very fast, if they can protect Purnell and keep him healthy….At Doug Henderson Stadium….
WS Reynolds at Southwest Guilford…..WS Reynolds is no slouch, but SWG is loaded with top talent and Jaren Rainey(QB) ought to pushing his Cowboy teammates for a 10-win season….That should be their goal, win at least 10….
High Point Central at WS Parkland….HP Central is always fast and this Bison team should follow that same DNA with John Saunders Jr. at QB and Curt Ervin at RB/SB/WR/DB/KR/PR and if Ervin has his license, he will be driving the bus too…

High Point Christian at Fayetteville Village Christian 7pm
Bishop McGuinness at North Wilkes 7:30
Not up to snuff yet on these two games at the bottom, but this shall become a work-in-progress…..

    Ford Moser does not attend Northern Guilford any longer? It says, “…Ford Moser for Grimsley”

    Hope the teams with the transfers play well and get far in the playoffs.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Glad you noticed that….That would be big news to us too and I guess there are some things that spell check can not catch…

    Moser can sure catch the football and hopefully he will be ready to do that for NG on Friday at Grimsley…

    Good catch….

  • James Lograin said,

    Hey Big Andy. It is here !!!! Best time of year. Who are some surprise teams that are on your radar this year pal?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Northeast Guilford may be ready to make a strong run for the playoffs…

    Eastern Guilford will be very strong…

    Southwest Guilford has a chance to have a Special Year…

    Southeast Guilford, if that passing game gets rolling can be a force….Ryan Douglas is a potent QB for the Falcons…

    Dudley and Page are still very much loaded with talent….Way too much in their cupboards….

    Dudley, Page, Eastern Guilford, Southwest Guilford, Northwest Guilford, High Point Central and on you go….After Week One, which is this week, we will know how far most of the teams are going to go….
