Dudley Done Wrong or Dudley Done Right?
It has been a long and rough week for Dudley football and there is a black cloud hanging over the James B. Dudley High School campus on Lincoln Street…
No matter if you feel like Dudley was Done Wrong or Dudley was Done Right, we need to try and do what we can to help get it right and fix what was broken and in this case that was the rules and they need to be properly conducted in the future, but there was something else that was broken this week and that was the hearts of those Dudley football kids…
The kids hearts are healing and the Northern Guilford Nighthawks have stepped up and the Nighthawks’ football team will show support for the Dudley Panthers by wearing yellow stickers on their helmets Friday night during their game with Northwood….
CLICK HERE to see more on the Northern Guilford support…..
There is a broken spirit surrounding the Dudley Community this week and let’s hope they will pull back together and battle as a family in future weeks to ensure that they are ready to push forward and put this rough chapter in their football history behind and that they are ready to move forward and find a way to begin playing with the “Panther Pride” again…..
I have seen these guys when they are on top of the world and I have seen them way down before, and they carry on better when they have their teams in proper working order…
To get things right they will have to get that rule book laminated and study it from cover to cover and adhere to the standards that the NCHSAA dictates and there can be no rest periods when it comes to following the guidelines that the NCHSAA has set up….
There will be some tough times until all is well on Lincoln Street again, but if the Panthers can’t find a way to play right down the line, the lines will remain skewed…Got to get all correct and there can be no days off in the boiler room and that is where the work will have to start…
Back down in the basement, where you have to start over and work your way back up to the top….
Along the way with looking to see Dudley get things in order, we have to make it a tall order for some and a direct order for others and make sure we support the Southeast Guilford kids in their playoff efforts….
The Southeast Guilford kids have done nothing wrong and they should not be trashed or thrown out with the bath water…Those SEG kids have played hard all season long and this is no time to start pulling against them just because they gained the conference championship after the Dudley forfeit from last Friday night’s game at Dudley…
The SEG kids are just like the Dudley kids in the way that the SEG players did not do anything to hurt Dudley in the boardroom…On both sides the paperwork and the oversights came from adults and you just don’t need to be trashing the kids or either teams’ programs for that matter….
We need to stand tall and make sure SEG gets our full support in Friday’s game with High Point Central, unless you are a HP Central Bison fan and if that is the case, you need to support your HPC Bison and stick tight with the Bison on the road in the playoffs….
Southeast Guilford did not break any rules and the kids could use your support come Friday night…..
No need to be trash talking SEG or pulling for them to lose their game…
The way this week has gone everyone is beginning to play with a chip on their shoulder during a time when we need to be pulling together for the sake of the Guilford County High School Football Teams…..

Providence(8-3) at Northwest Guilford(8-3)
