The Northern Guilford baseball team just got a ton better today as they picked up a great player and super kid in George Carter.
George was with Grimsley last season, but he has enrolled at Northern and he began classes there today. Baseball practice begins for all of our area schools next week.
Ii spoke with George’s dad Randy Carter about the move this morning and Randy told me that he decided to get a home in Summerfield area so he could be closer to his work and this was an economic move and with the economy the way it is you have to try and save money any way you can.
Randy Carter had nothing but good things to say about the Grimsley program and he said he thinks that new head baseball coach Jason Simmons will do a fine job with the Whirlies. Randy went on to say that “we are going from a program that had a .700 winning percentage to a program that was sub-.500 last year”. The sub-.500 was probably closer to five to ten per cent wins over the entire first- year schedule for Northern.
George Carter, a sophomore, has already verbally committed to attend the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and he is in great shape in the classroom.
Goerge Carter to Northern Guilford and this just made the Dudley-Northern series a whole lot more interesting, especially in baseball.
