Checking out the info at the MaxPreps site today, and they have Josh Prince listed as the new boys basketball coach, at Dudley High School….

Coach Prince has been at Dudley for nearly ten years and he was previously the head boys JV basketball coach and an assistant coach for the boys varsity team…

The Dudley girls team will be loaded this season, the Lady Panthers, coached by Frank McNeil, should contend for the 3-A State Title…Quinzia Fulmore, Diamond Monroe, and Moriah Frazier, just a few of the key names, that will be pushing the Panthers forward….

This week you will find Dudley at Grimsley on Friday, and Page at Dudley on Saturday…

Western Guilford is at Northwest on Tuesday, and Southeast Guilford is at Northwest on Friday….

NWG girls with one of our area’s top young guards in Madison Young, and the NWG boys have a sharp-shooter in Conner Ballou…

The Northern Guilford boys look to be paced by Nolan Hodge and Jackson Helms, while the Northern girls are extremely balanced, and we do like that little freshman, Jasmine/Jazzy Harris, and we see her as major player, at NG…

Southeast Guilford will be missing Raven Preston, who moved over to the Quality Education Academy, but the SEG Falcons still have plenty of talent, and they will not be left out, when it comes to post-season play….

The Page boys will be ready to run with Jaden Ellis, Zion Conner, Josh Scovens and more, while the Eastern Guilford boys will rely on Kaydn Dawkins, Kamell Smith and others…

And speaking of Smith, MaxPreps has Andrea Bryant listed as the Smith boy’s head coach for this season…We need to be hearing from Coach Derrick Partee, or Coach Waddell about that one…

Our Guilford County teams are slated to play just 11-12 games for this regular season…

This gives you brief preview, and it is time to get the season started…..

If you have more info or questions for us, send our way, here at the site…..


  • Guilford ?? said,

    At what point will Guilford County admit that they can not enforce their rules and allow ALL of the kids to go where they want. As it is now, you are just rewarding the kids that have the most unethical parents that are willing to lie and forge documents. Just let them go where they want if you cant enforce it otherwise.

    The students transferring has not been too severe…

    There will be a handful every season…

    The result is, you can go from having a boatload of talent one year/season, and the next year, your cupboard can be bare….
    (When you have the players, you feel like you have it made, and then when they leave, you feel like you have been burned/betrayed.)
    **********Sometimes you have the players/talent and you never get to use them/play them, you look up, and they are already gone….**********

    You have to be prepared for it, and it comes in cycles, it does not run in droves….

    We have seen a lot of phases of it over the years….

    It has pretty much happened at every school, one time or another…..No need to re-live it, but the need is, “be ready for it”……

  • Andy Durham said,

    The transfers won’t be as noticeable in basketball, as they will be in football this season…

    We will do a full football transfer portal report in late-January/early February……

    Curious since when transferring made a parent unethical? Coaches can go wherever but that is ok? Until there is proof of forgery everything is just speculation. Players come and go for many reasons. Good coaches understand that and just focus on coaching up the kids who show up to their field or the gym etc.

  • baller said,

    But yeah those Dudley names sound familiar-ragsdale or southwest prior?
    I know Grimsley loaded up for football
    THe schools with those not sure of the name satellite programs the rotc IB and various academies makes it easier but on any given Friday anyone can be beaten

  • Andy Durham said,

    I always liked those days where all of the kids came up through the programs together, from youth ball all the way up through high school….

    You worked together and you stayed together through thick and thin, and you thought if you gave your all for your home school, then the rest of your teammates, were doing the same thing, all for the same cause…

    As an old coach I used to know, used to say, “Total Release”…

    But those days are long gone, and thoughts like mine are just an old pipe dream..

    But that’s OK, in the real world, you take the hand you have, or the hand that you have been given, and you deal with it…

    Press On……

  • baller said,

    Andy i agree i prefer those days too. THe rivalries were better also. Way long gone sir. Kids even change states nowadays to go play ball, Look at IMG, Findlay prep in vegas, Oak hill, New england prep schools.
    Aau hoops also these kids hop on a plane to go to a different brand team every weekend. Don’t hate the game just join in and play along with it. It is a new day of youth sports.

  • baller said,

    I should clarify I am NOT in a position to tell any parent what to do or where to send their kid to school. thanks

  • Coach said,

    Yep Grimsley football got Page starting QB, RB,& WR

  • BB Parent said,

    WOW! Coach, Grimsley got those players. Can’t blame Grimsley. It’s the team that was hot year before is where these players are going, hoping to make a name for themselves . I must be late to the game , but how are these athletes transferring to these schools ?

  • Baller said,

    Bb I think grimsley has side programs like rotc or what is called academic IB. MAYBE EVEN a Spanish immersion program
