Some of the matchups included:
Northwest Guilford vs. Charlotte Christian
Northern vs. High Point Andrews
Northeast vs. Raleigh Wakefield
NG vs. Panther Creek
NWG vs. Apex
HPA vs. Middle Creek
NWG vs. Bartlett Yancey
NG vs. Apex
In some of the action we were able to take in, and there 12 teams going at it at the same time, I saw NWG top Charlotte Christian 3 scores to 2….NWG had two defensive picks and Charlotte Christian had one…
#5 Matt Pawloski(NWG-QB) had another solid day with TD tosses to #10(Reid Baxter) and several long haul passes to the Vikings #9(Alex Pauley)….NWG’s #10(Baxter) was in on a number of long receptions from Pawlowski throughout all three NWG 7 on 7 games….Pawlowski is the real deal and along with Rocco Scarfone he was the best of the two QB’s on the field today…
Pawlowski, Scarfone, Matt Heavner(Ragsdale), James Summers(Page), Drew Adams(High Point Central) and Josh Thompson(Western Guilford) will give Guilford County a very good group of quarterbacks this fall….
Pawlowski and Scarfone both looked very sharpe today…
NWG 3-2 over Charlotte and the Vikings also had the advantage over Apex and Bartlett Yancey, but when the JV’s hit the field, the edge can change for all the teams involved..
#11 Rocco Scarfone to #21 Maurice Harris, is no contest, when opponents face Northern Guilford….I heard more than one coach say of Harris, “we can’t stop him and we can’t cover him with just one man”….
Northern did not have the edge versus High Point Andrews, but NG did use many of their JV’s in this game…..Northern grabbed an advantage over Panther Creek and Apex….One thing else is certain, Northern is not just Scarfone and Harris…..Bob Hicks is back from California. Hicks is the real deal at tight end and he once kicked a 47-yard field goal as a sophomore, two years ago at NG. Hicks’ family moved away and now he’s back, as a senior at Northern and the Nighthawks also have a strong receiver and defensive back in Daniel Downing….Downing caught a number of TD’s from Scarfone last season and he is also the backup QB, along with Harris, when they decide to use him there…..Nick Jones made a real nice defensive pick against Panther Creek while I was watching Northern…
NEG is a very athletic team and their receivers made a number of nice catches while I was watching the Rams…NEG seemed to have a definite advantage over Raleigh Wakefield…NEG lost almost their entire offensive backfield, but they look like they have found a few answers and Coach Tommy Pursley’s team should contend again this year..
I did not see much of High Point Andrews, but I heard they looked strong against NG and HPA is once again loaded with great athletes and they should be in the hunt, for the State 2-A bragging rights, in the Western part of the state…..
That is it on what we saw tonight and if you have more, feel free to add it in and I couldn’t cover it all with 12 teams going at once, but I did get a good overall look at our Guilford County teams…..
