*****I went (10-1) on my picks tonight and my only loss was Western Guilford falling to Ledford…How did everybody else do??? Are you ready to offer me up an olive branch or do I at least get some congratulations???*****
(Jamiel Mack had 6 TD’s for High Point Central on Friday night. See details below.)[Reggie Gallaspy with three TD’s, two rushing and one receiving for Southern Guilford.]
Sounds like one of the best games of the night might have been the Southern Guilford-North Forsyth game, but I haven’t seen the final on SEG-SEG…
Wonder how Reggie Gallasy did yardage-wise in this one?????
Have to also take a look at the Northern Guilford-Western Alamance game and from the reports that we are hearing, Western was in this one for quite a long time tonight….
In the game over at Grimsley, the young quarterbacks were on display this evening with Northwest Guilford’s Jake Smith and Grimsley’s Gerald Simpson….Smith is a sophomore and Simpson is a freshman….
Jake Smith really looked good connecting with his receivers on numerous occasions and NWG came out throwing with Smith getting the ball to Thomas Hennigan, Mark Garner and others at steady rate…Northwest utilized Howard and Finnie out of the backfield to make for a pretty balanced night with the running and passing…
Smith was throwing the ball like a senior for Northwest and the Vikings look to be in good shape for several years down the road with a kid like Smith at QB…Simpson for Grimsley hit an open Bruce Davis for a TD that ended the game, while Thomas Hennigan scored three times for NWG….
Conventional thinking tells you that the Smith kid and the Simpson kid too, could really be something special one day for their schools….Smith and I had not heard of him before tonight, that Smith kid is ooming on right now and looks like he has been around for quite a while….Smith kid sure got our attention tonight, especially since we were all looking for Josh Homol…Smith was right there and ready on time for NWG…And a few times tonight, I was wondering if Hennigan was a running back or a receiver….Kid was all over the place for NWG…
Has to be a fact that we never dreamed we would see Grimsley(1-5) and Page(0-6) at a combined (1-11) at this stage of the season…For many teams tonight/Friday September 26 is the mid-way point of the 2014 season….
Dudley began slow, but it was looking like the Panthers picked up the pace enough to win by three touchdowns over Northern Durham…Western Guilford ran into a buzz-saw with Ledford taking it to the Hornets….
High Point Central big over Page, NWG stopped Grimsley and we had the game with SWG and SEG and I have not seen a final on that one yet, but what kind of shape does that leave the Metro in? Is the Piedmont Triad Athletic Conference that far out in front of the Metro?
+++++I just cheated and saw where SEG topped SWG and that will at least give the Metro a little boost….+++++
Wonder how those two quarterbacks, Craven(SEG) and Cross(SWG) did tonight? On paper this looked to be a tight game, but SEG won it by two TD’s…
The scoreboard said Eastern Guilford was winning big tonight over McMichael, Northern got the best of Western Alamance, but Northeast Guilford got pummeled by Reidsville, so our Mid-State 3-A teams are tough, but not in tip-top shape…
Southern Guilford gets a nice road win and it really is tough to into Forsyth County, at North Forsyth and come back a winner, so SG passed a tough test tonight with that victory over the Vikings….Western Guilford lost so we are like 1 for 2 in the Mid-Piedmont 3-A and no news yet on High Point Andrews, but you have to believe that the Red Raiders got rolling on the road tonight….Ragsdale won real big at East Chapel Hill and the Tigers may have set some team records in this one…..
What is the word on these games and is there any talk coming out of our Friday night contests???
Here is the word from the High Point Enterprise on the SEG-SWG game:
The Falcons (4-1) rallied from a 14-8 halftime deficit with a dominant second half that included three long scoring drives and a line-busting running game. Styles Jennings had one rushing score and quarterback Bubba Craven found the end zone twice on sneaks to seal the win.

Mack scored on runs of 4, 8. 29. 4, 12 and 9 yards…

from the High Point Enterprise…
Tevin Quick accounted for three touchdowns as Ragsdale cruised past East Chapel Hill for a 57-0 victory on Friday night.
Quick completed 6 of 7 passes for 102 yards and a TD and added two scoring runs for the Tigers. Devon Parks rushed for 79 yards and two TDs, while Jarious Drayton had 85 rushing yards and a TD.

from the Burlington Times-News on Eastern Guilford:(www.thetimesnews.com)
Behind 465 yards of rushing offense and three Jarius Morehead touchdowns, Eastern Guilford rolled to a 47-7 victory against visiting McMichael in Mid-State 3-A conference football Friday night.
Morehead was all over the field for the Wildcats, punting, kicking and playing defensive back and receiver in addition to quarterback. He was just 6-for-14 passing the ball, but found success on the ground. By the end of the night, Morehead racked up 158 rushing yards on 11 carries.
“We use (Morehead) very much and I’m worried sometimes we use him too much, but we have to,” Eastern Guilford coach Doug Robertson said. “He does a lot of things for us and if he doesn’t do those things, we’re not nearly as good a football team.”
