Recognizing/Celebrating the Senior Athletes from around Guilford County:Today we have Grimsley High School(Home of the Whirlies)

The Grimsley Whirlies Senior Athletes page is being brought to us by Neese’s Country Sausage….Neese’s Country Sausage, a family tradition for over 100 years..Their “special recipe” was created by J.T. Neese in the early 1900’s….They use the whole hog, everything except for the squeal…Neese’s Country Sausage, Bacon, Liver Pudding and more…Go to neesesausage.com for more info…Thanks to Neese’s Country Sausage for sponsoring the Grimsley Whirlies’ page

This is our 2020 “Senior Celebration”, as we look to all of the high school senior athletes from Guilford County, we study the sport they played in high school, and if they will be playing that sport in college…
(We try and personalize each one of these “Senior Athletes” pages, and let each one tell a different story.)

We look to the Grimsley High School atletic director Ethan Albright and commend him for his leadership, as he runs the day-to-day operations of Grimsley AthelticsEthan Albright ably assisted by Clayton Nance, Addison Edwards and others within the Grimsley High School Athletics program…

The lead coaches for Grimsley are all former Southern Guilford HS student-athletes, and now they run the football, basketball and baseball programs for Grimsley….And that would be Daryl Brown, Darren Corbett, and Jason SimmonsTitus Duff is now in charge of the girls basketball program and Grimsley has a full lineup of capable coaches, turning out successful athletes each season…

Just a few quick notes looking back on Grimsley Athletics from the 2019-2020 season, which brings us to our group of graduation Grimsley Senior Athletes of 2020, we remember what kind of crazy and successful season it was for the football team…Just a couple of points away from being in the 4-A Championship Game and falling to eventual winner, East Forsyth…Chris Zellous and Quan Nora putting up more points, and more numbers than many of the Whirlie faithful have seen in a long, long, time…There were a couple of games where Zellous and Nora were into the 300-400 yard land and they were putting up touchdowns so fast, the scoreboard operator was having trouble keeping up…Jaquavion Mayo and Chris Lyle will also carry on and play football in college, just like Quan and Chris….

Ahmil Flowers and the Grimsley boys basketball team gave us many fond memories this past season, and with the return of Coach Darren Corbett, the Grimsley boys basketball team looks to be in good hands, for many years to come..And the best thing about Ahmil Flowers is the fact that the young man not only tears it up on the basketball court, he is cleaning house in the classroom too…Flowers has done so well on the academic board, that he can probably pay his way through High Point University, on academics alone, and he will be with the HPU basketball team next season..

Finally on some of these Senior Spotlights/Highlights, we put in a word for Gus Hughes…We remember Gus back when he was a freshman, Gus would start in right field for the baseball team, and then work his way in to pitch…By his junior year, Gus was the winning pitcher in what many feel was the “Greatest high school game ever”, in Guilford County…That was the night Grimsley pulled off a one-run win over Page and Gus secured the win in releif, and the game went something like 15 innings, before Grimsley slipped past the Pirates…

Lots of those memories, and I’m sure the Senior Athletes have plenty of past treasures, stored up in their memory banks…

Ethan Albright, the Grimsley AD, will handing out the Senior Athletes’ sports diplomas today, and we have the music queued up and now is the time for Tommy Neese to “Bring on the Bacon/Sausage”….

He are the Senior Athletes we have from Grimsley High School, and we have our standard 2020 processional music, Pomp and Circumstance, and when the music hits, let the march/procession begin….Say hello to these seniors, and as we get more of the colleges that they will be attending, we will be adding those in…For now, we have the Pomp and Circumstance and special commencement speaker D.J. Reader is waiting to deliver his farewell address to the Senior Athletes…
