I was over at the Grimsley football practice tonight and the word is former Whirlie coach Todd Shuping is now at Trinity as an assistant coach. The word from those watching the practice is that Coach Shup was at Southwest Guilford for three days and then left for the Trinity Bulldogs.
Former Southern Guilford, Northeast Guilford, Richmond County, and West Brunswick coach Daryl Barnes is the principal at Trinity. Barnes won five 4-A State Championships at Richmond County and he called me often for advice although I never got those phone calls.
Coach Todd Shuping is at Trinity and his son is now back at Grimsley. Young Shuping got clearance after his summer academic work was completed and decided not to go to Southwest Guilford and instead come back to Grimsley. Young Shuping will be on the JV football squad as he was last year and he enters the 10th grade in 2007/2008.
Good news I would think for all involved and it was good to see Wayne Butler and his wife Karen and also Fred Harris at the practice. There’s a scrimmage at Southeast Guilford tomorrow night involving SEG and Statesville. Things get under way at 6:30 and I am still looking job as a coaches’ consultanat if anyone is interested.
