How will the Mid-State 3-A Conference look at the end of the 2013 season??? Is there a new champ on the horizon ready to replace Northern Guilford at the top of the conference standings? The Mid-State 3-A has definitely been growing with the addition of the Northeast Guilford Rams to the conference address book….NEG is in and it looks like the rest of the teams remain the same and if want to play any non-conference games you better pick out the two or three teams that you really want to play……Have that Burlington Williams is much-improved and that the Bulldogs might be ready to make a run at the crown this season…..Western Alamance won it all in the Mid-State the year that the Northern Guilford Nighthawks won the first of their three NCHSAA 3-AA titles, so you know that the Warriors will be ready to challenge again this year….Western has Brock and Blake Deatheridge and a host of other player too and we know Northern still has quite a bit of talent, even though there will be no way to replace now-departed All-Everything runningback TJ Logan, but NG still has reliable players with the likes of Chris Pipberger(FB/LB), Austin Coltrane(QB), TJ Ruff(LB) and others on hand…Northern also a has a back up from the JV’s named CJ Freeman, who is expected to make his mark before his playing days are over, but it will take some time, before Northern ever finds another back with run to the end zone ability, that Logan had….We will be receiving word soon on Eastern Guilford and Northeast Guilford from our associate on the road, Dennis White, but we do know that Northeast Guilford has the McNeil kid that has already committed to Wake Forest and we don’t know anything about him yet, but I am sure we will soon……Dennis is on that NEG and EG trail right now….
Here is look at how they might finish this season in the Mid-State 3-A:
1)Northern Guilford/Western Alamance
*****This would somewhat be based on what all they have returning and we don’t know for sure yet, what all these schools might be bringing to the field house in 2013…We may end up in the outhouse, as opposed to the field house, but the floor is open if you want to start breaking the teams down and give us your predictions….*****
