HS Player of the Week, plus All-County Check-List

Our Player of the Week last week after we had a battle of the bands vote-off to determine the winner was Mike Fields RB, from Southeast Guilford and the runner-up was RB Elijah Jordan, from Smith High School….

Our season long winners have been Daniel Downing(Northern Guilford), Matt Pawlowski(Northwest Guilford), Mike Fields(Southeast Guilford) and this week’s winner is,(drum-roll) ……..Elijah Jordan from Smith, as the out-right solo winnner…….

We are going to list our All-County check list for this week, so we can get many kids involved and we will have a Player of the Year coming up at the end of the season…..Remember a couple of years ago when we were battling over Ricky Lewis Jr., Will Newman and Tim Romer among others for the award….Last year we were looking at kids like Keenan Allen, David Amerson, Major Bryant, Kasey Redfern, D’onovan Smith, Jon Spain, James Summers, Drew Rogers, Jabri Ridenhour and others for the county’s top player…..

Our Steak N Shake Players of the Game so far this season have been, James Summers, Demetrious Dick, Mycah Gaylord and Brad Davis……

In major consideration this week in addition to Elijah Jordan we will have, but first before we lay down the others on the All County Check list let’s take a quick look at what Jordan did for Smith in the Golden Eagles 35-29 overtime win over High Point Central…..

Jordan……306 yards rushing…..2 receptions for 43 yards….1 pass completion for 40 yards……The 306 yards came on 44 carries and that is a real night’s work….TD runs went for 5, 10, 11 and 20 yards….Took home the game-winner in OT….(44 carries, that’s a load, I don’t care where you are coming in from…….)

Also from last week….

*****Other suggestions/nominations, send them our way in the comment box below……*****


  1. Wish we had some way to recognize the boys in the trenches. Those big boys who paved the way for Jordans 306 yard, Adams 201 passing yds or Summers 4tds. The trenches is where the game is won.

  2. You nominate and we will call the coaches and see how the linemen graded out and if they have earned a spot on the list…..

    I used to work down in those trenches and I know what it is like down there……

    We can make this happen……

    Send us some nominees……

  3. I’ll be at Dudley Hillside game this week so Im sure I’ll see some great oline/dline play. So look for some nominations on Monday.

    I wasnt at a game last friday so I cant nominate anyone but maybe some of the other readers can.

    Saw Butler/Richmond on Saturday two really good teams

  4. Didn’t Butler beat Richmond County something like 21-7 to go (3-0)….Unbeaten and no Christian LeMay and the Ferguson kid is doing pretty good at QB for the Bulldogs and they are still ranked #1 in the state in most polls….

    Was reading somewhere that the Butler fullback had a monster game with a load of bug receptions out of the backfield and that the new QB’s brother is a deep threat at receiver…..

    Bulter doing well.

  5. yeah Butler won 21 – 7. Butlers fb is the real deal. The player that killed Richmond was Lemay’s little brother. I think he surprised them with seveal good runs. Butlers new qb needs a little work but the team is very good.

  6. Great suggestion.without those guys in the trenches there wont be great rushing and passing yards.

    Keep an eye on 71 Demarcus Bell..plays both DL and OL.he’s not the only one Linebacker Denzel Jones and many more…..
