from Eastern Guilford coach Scott Loosemore on the 7 on 7’s at West Stokes and check out the part about the first team trophy since 1981:
We started out a little sluggish, I think we tied Bishop McGuinness, then lost in close games to West Stokes and played some JV players against NW Guilford in our first game against them.
In tournament play we played pretty mistake free football offensively with Derek Holbrook looking pretty good at QB and Zack Leddon playing very well at wide receiver. We defeated N. Surry in the first game then beat N. Forsyth by getting a first down on an option play to break the tie with only a few seconds left.
We played NW Guilford in the championship game and looked very good. It was a great way for us to finish the summer going into the camp. I know 7 on 7â€™s are not a good gauge on the season but it did get our kids excited.
Winning the 7 on 7 tournament at West Stokes gave us our first football team trophy here at Eastern since 1981.
The Eastern Guilford Wildcats led by their coach Scott Loosemore and their quarterback Derek Holbrook claimed the top spot at last night’s 7 on 7 football mini-jamboree at West Stokes High School in King, N.C.
The ‘Cats received a very nice plaque that will go into their trophy case at the new EG High School in Gibsonville come Monday morning, just about the time 2009 mini-camp is starting for Coach Loosemore and his Wildcats.
Nice job by Eastern and we will have more details forth-coming, on what must have been a fairly big 7 on 7 in King, if they were handing out hardware to the winner.
Again, good job ‘Cats and to all the teams out there, drink plenty of water as you prepare to hit the field next week. You must learn to love H2O.
