Grimsley hosting 7 on 7 on Thursday evening: Mitchell joins Whirlies’ staff

I ran into Coach Damon Coiro up at Omega Sports this afternoon and he was telling me about the 7 on 7 football workout coming up at Grimsley HS, on Thursday evening at 6pm.

The Whirlies will be hosting Winston-Salem Atkins and Coach Coiro was also telling me about his new offensive coordinator Neal Mitchell, the former head football coach at Greensboro College……Coach Coiro is putting together an impressive staff at Grimsley…..

Neal Mitchell, like many of our Guilford County coaches is a good football man…..


  1. I’m sure offensive coach Neal Mitchell will have it all well planned out, but with Dominique McNair as one of the quarterbacks, you might see a little “Air McNair” out there…McNair is also a solid baseball player for Coach Jason Simmons…..

  2. There was a lot of positive energy at Grimsley today. They are going to need all the positive reinforcement that the coaching staff can provide. It looks to be a long season in the Metro for the Whirlies. I did see many positives but overall I just don’t see the depth. Number 2 made a couple of nice plays on offense and defense. The coaches seem very supportive so turnaround may not be far off. Probably about the time Page class of 2012 graduates.
    Also the QB looked good on a couple of passes.
