Looking forward to the upcoming high school football season and practice gets officially going next Wednesday, so the start is now less than a week away….We have had some very good discussions this week on the runningbacks that are back and the defenders that will be bringing them down and will we have at least THREE backs to gain over 2,000 yards on the ground this season and who will the THREE be??? Let’s see if you will agree and do you say Logan, Petty and Moseley from the list below and on the defensive side of the ball, the High Point Central Bison fans are stepping up this week and East Forsyth has a man that they feel can challenge Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Crosby, as that top tackler in our area this season and that is the EF Eagles Jalen Forest….
The five backs that are back and in pursuit of the 2,000 yards and who will the THREE be that reach that level, the 2,000 in 2012….Maybe that is a good goal, go for 2012, in 2012…..Logan did it last year and Petty had 1,600 and Moseley, Baxter and Eleazer were on the way….Baxter and Eleazer have very good teammates in Anthony Harding and Xavier Jones helping them out, so will that make it more accessible for Logan, Petty and Moseley to get their first?????
How about that defensive war with Central and East Forsyth…Two solid teams with defenses led by Crosby and Forest….They could be two of the top defenders in the entire state this season…..
The backs and who will hit 2,000 in 2012???

TJ Logan(Northern Guilford) 2,468 yards with 38 TD’s
