Bison Football from the Coach’s Corner with Black Watch leader Ken Helms of High Point Central

Well, the Grimsley game was everything we thought it would be. A tough, physical ballgame that was won by the guys up front. Whoever wins the majority of those one on one battles on the line of scrimmage usually win the game. We were fortunate to come away with the win. We were proud of the way our young men responded to the challenge.

We are winning a few of those close ones we let slip through our fingers last year. We have another huge challenge this week against arguably the best running game in the conference (Sorry Pirate fans). Good luck to the Whirlies the rest of the way. They have a good football team, and as a team, we were just glad they didn’t pick the week they played us to pick up the win you know is coming. Maybe against those Pirates!

East Forsyth and Northwest showed how evenly matched the Metro is this year with a safety being the difference in the game. The Vikings will bring their grind ‘em up offense in to High Point this week, looking to make some buffalo burgers. They better be careful because they say that Bison meat is lean, and can cause indigestion. You can’t eat too many of ‘em.

Doug Davis, a 5-9, 165 pound corner was on the sideline of the A&T game this week, and will make a trip to Coastal this weekend. He hopes to have a decision soon on where he will be going to school. Doug has been a key player for the Bison on defense this year, routinely drawing the opposition’s best receiver every week. I wouldn’t want that job. Those corners have to have thick skin and a short memory; and a little Swag doesn’t hurt either. Good luck to all this week. Go Bison.
