#1)Catawba(6-0) Last week 1-The Indians are still unbeaten after Saturday’s 28-18 win over Newberry. Will face Carson-Newman and Southern Guilford-grad Alex Good this week. QB Good is playing great for C-N.
#2)Appalachian State (5-1)LW 2-The Mountaineers have now won 30 in a row at home after Saturday’s slaughter of Gardner-Webb 45-7. RB Kevin Richardson scored 4 TD’s, all in the second quarter.
#3)East Carolina(3-3)LW6-After what the Pirates did to Central Florida, they deserve a push. The 52-38 victory in Greenville was witnessed by Southeast Guilford’s Justin Venable with mom, dad, and girlfriend in tow. ECU out-scored UCF 28-3 in the 3rd quarter.
#4)Wake Forest(3-2)LW4-The Demon Deacons have some offense but the defense gave them a scare in the 41-36 win over Duke. Wake’s Kenneth Moore is probably the hottest all-around player in the conference and Blue Devil QB Thaddeus Lewis can stay with most of the other QB’s.
#5)Elon(3-2)LW5-The Phoenix and their Freshman QB Scott Riddle out of Eastern Randolph are making it happen with the 38-36 squeeker going their way up in Cullowhee against Western Carolina on Saturday night. Riddle had 4 TD’s passing and he ran for another.
#6)Guilford College(4-1)LW3-You snooze you lose and that’s why the Quakers are falling this week in the poll after last Saturday’s open date. Quakers return to ODAC action this week. I was up at Guilford on Sunday night and there was a young lady laying out in the road under a streetlight doing her studies. Highway engineering student I guess?
#7)Winston-Salem State(3-3)LW7-The Rams defeated Florida A&M 27-23 in the Circle City Classic out in Indianapolis, Indiana. Former WS Parkland star RB Jed Bines with 126 yards and key TD to pace WSSU.
#8)Wingate(5-1)LW8-The Bulldogs blasted Brevard 51-7 to maintain a spot in our coveted poll.
#9)North Carolina(2-4)LW NR-The Heels showed some perseverence and held on to beat the Mighty Miami Hurricanes in Chapel Hill on Saturday. 33-27 UNC-CH and T.J. Yates is making Butch Davis look like Bill Walsh.
#10)Greensboro College(1-4)-The Pride continue to slide but they are still our own and with Torrey Lowe catching 6 passes for 132 yards and 1 TD the Pride were in it until Christopher Newport started smoking and the Captains came away with a 52-21 victory. Number 57 for CNU had a beautiful mother and she kept us all on our toes on the Captains side of the field. Very attractive and very knowledgeable about football.
Also receiving consideration:UNCG women’s volleyball team. Katherine Hart had 17 kills in a loss to Appalachian on Saturday and Katherine is our GREENSBOROSports.com college volleyball Player-of-the Week.
