CLICK HERE and you might shed a tear, and you may have to wipe away the “Tracks of your Tears”, but here it is from Joe Sirera at the News and Record’s HSXtra section on East Forsyth at Grimsley last night/Friday night…

CLICK HERE for J.P. Mundy at the News and Record and the HSXtra, as East Forsyth gets another shot at the State Championship…

CLICK HERE for Jim Sands at the Rockingham County Now, a subdivision of the News and Record’s HSXtra section and Jim Sands will give us the Quick Take before we bake, due to the extreme heat here in the Sands….Anybody remember the old Sands Motel, out on Highway 29 North??? Jim Sands takes up Highway 29 North to Reidsville, where the Reidsville Rams walloped West Stokes last night, 63-13….

CLICK HERE for H. Scott Hoffmann at the News and Record, with his photos from last night’s East Forsyth at Grimsley game and some of these photos are a bit tough to bear/view, but this is the reality of it, you have to battle through this adversity and that is something Scott Hoffmann has done over the years…He has been down for the count and almost run out of town a few times, but you look up and the H. Scott Hoffmann tag is still active on News and Record photos…..Great work over and through the years….

CLICK HERE for Donnell Coley at the Richmond County Daily Journal and this is on Charlotte Vance upsetting Richmond County last night and I don’t know about you, but this one was a shocker to me…
Here’s the headline that is being seen around the state today:No. 10 Vance upsets top-ranked Richmond

CLICK HERE for Herb White at the Charlotte Observer on Vance over Richmond County and now two unlikely suspects, Vance vs. Leesville Road, for the 4-AA State Title next Saturday in Chapel Hill…Everyone was expecting/anticipating Wake Forest vs. Richmond County for the title, but no, now you have Charlotte Vance vs. Leesville Road, in the “Battle for the Belt”…

CLICK HERE for Tony Bolick at the Asheboro Courier-Tribune on Salisbury’s 14-7 victory over the Randleman Tigers last night….Salisbury will meet Shelby for the 2-AA State Title next Saturday….

CLICK HERE for David Kehrli with the Burlington Times-News on Southern Nash over Eastern Alamance last night, 32-29…Quinton Cooley, for Southern Nash, with 354 yards rushing and 3 TD’s last night…Cooley, a Wake Forest commit, will carry Southern Nash to face Charlotte Catholic next Saturday in Raleigh, at Carter-Finley Stadium…

CLICK HERE for Cory Smith with the Mount Airy News on East Surry over Mitchell 35-28 and this sends East Surry to the 1-AA Title Game next Saturday…
Headline:A Prophecy Fulfilled

These links will get us going and as we look back, it was all of those high school games, JV games, middle school games, Football in Focus Shows, preseason interviews, and the whole load that kept us going and thriving this season….Thanks to Don Moore, Don Tilley, Wyatt Smith, D.J. Wagner and our entire crew, that made the Ride happen this 2019 high school football season….It would be hard to rewind it all here this morning, but it was worth the effort and now we are in basketball season/basketball mode, and as the doctor said right after he was reinstated, I’ll see you in there….Now is the doctor good??? Oh, he’s OK…Doctor asks the patient, are you nervous??? Doctor says, yeah, me too….But, we’ll see you in there, at local gym near you….

++++++++++We try and give you all of the “Extra-Extra” and as of March 7, 2020, the Charlotte Observer Saturday morning paper will be gone….The hard copy will be history….Here is the Charlotte Observer explaining why the Saturday Morning Edition will be eliminated…
While the mission hasn’t changed, we are seeing shifts in how our readers are engaging with this valued content. More of our customers are engaging with our local journalism online. This is not only a trend in the Charlotte area, it is a media industry trend.

To support these shifts, starting on March 7, we will no longer produce a printed newspaper on Saturday and will launch a Weekend Edition that includes expanded newspapers on Fridays and Sundays. Many of the features that you enjoy on Saturday such as comics, puzzles, real estate, Home Design and local sports coverage will now appear in expanded editions in print on Friday and Sunday. On Saturdays, we will continue to publish breaking local news to our website and social media platforms and we invite you to visit our website or eEdition, which replicates the experience of a printed newspaper online.

    All that trash talk in pregame and on the message boards now all those tears! It’s a big difference in beating your chest after taking on NWG or a depleted Page team and going up against the Champs who are not afraid of you!

  • Just saying said,

    Tell Joe to get his facts straight before reporting! The snap was perfect the QB ran into the WR he sent in motion. Don’t blame it on the Oline blame that fumble on nobody but the QB!

  • Joe Sirera said,

    @Just saying

    The fact is the Grimsley coach and players all said the busted play started with the snap. Not trying to throw anybody under the bus, but I think they know better than a fan what went wrong on the play.

    It was a great season for the Whirlies. Two losses by a total of two points, and a lot of talent returning.

  • Whirlie Voice said,

    Fear the G LOL: Thanks for the respect you gave a team that battled you to a single point on two occasions after you blew us out twice last year. It is telling that on the sportsmanship handshake, you had a coach shake hands and tell our players to enjoy basketball season. Classy bunch.
