A look at some of the area conferences from the new football yearbook released by NCPreps.com. I just purchased mine on Monday and we now start looking at the area schools and we’ll go into more detail and commentary as the season gets closer.
The Piedmont Triad 4-A Conference and here is how it is supposed to shape up:
5)High Point Central
Pre-season Player-of-the-Year is D’onovan Smith RB Ragsdale…..
Early thoughts:You would think that HP Central would have a very good chance to finish higher than fifth……
Metro 4-A Conference:
Pre-season Player-of-the-Year will be Major Bryant, LB, from Dudley. Smith fans feel they will move up this year and be among the top four teams in the league. The Eagles feel they are ready to be in the playoff mix, but they will have to win a game first. Once they get their offense in order, Western Guilford may be set to jump up to as high as #4 in the Metro 4-A…….
Mid-Piedmont 3-A Conference
Pre-season Player-of-the-Year is Dimitri Faglier, RB, from Asheboro. Faglier gained over 2,200 yards rushing last season with 21 TD’s and his coach Dee Bulla calls Faglier the best back he has ever coached. Rayshawn Trader, RB, from Northeast is another kid to watch as he heads toward the end zone with his 4.3 speed in the 40…….
Mid State 3-A Conference
Pre-season Player-of-the-Year is Keenan Allen, WR/DB, from Northern Guilford…..Eastern and Northern may end up playing the spoiler roles in this conference and you may see either EA or WA falling from the the top-two tier and EG or NG taking their spots………
Piedmont Athletic 2-A Conference
2)High Point Andrews
Pre-season Player-of-the-Year is RB DeQuan Holder, from WS Carver. The new Wheatmore school is in Randolph County and made up of students primarily who came over from Trinity High School. Wheatmore’s head coach will be former Ragsdale leader, Eugene Everhart.
This should give us an early look at all of our 15 teams from Guilford County….We will have more details and a more in-depth look at the teams as the week unfolds……..
