North Carolina vs. South Carolina at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte tonight with T.J. Logan(Northern Guilford HS) set to be either the starting RB or to play a lot vs. the Gamecocks…
Wonder who will be the Tar Heels rushing leader this season, will it be T.J., Elijah Hood(Charlotte Catholic) or the QB Marquise Williams(Mallard Creek)???
Kickoff for Tar Heels vs. Gamecocks should come some time around (they are going to kick it at 6pm)… Another ESPN contest as they try to control all of the times and the dates…
Also in there(along the sidelines) for the Heels will be DB Chris Ripberger(Northern Guilford), DL Jon Sugg(Northwest Guilford), Jon’s dad Mark was a starting OL for the Heels back in the day, RB/KR Darius Graves(Dudley) is on the team, but not sure if he will be there tonight or if plans to take a redshirt season….Could be others, we will check…
Clayton Stadnik(Western Guilford) should be someplace along the offensive line for the South Carolina Gamecocks, but we heard he had lost a lot of weight and moved into the tight end role…Has to still be a blocker, that is what he does best…His brother, Brock Stadnik’s career was cut short due to injuries….Brock also from Western Guilford and the Stadnik brothers were two of the best offensive linemen to ever play for Western Guilford and there was only one better, and I’m sitting here writing this blog…..
Winston-Salem State at UNC-Pembroke with Khalil Vance(Dudley) in there at DL for UNCP, plus Rick Mack(Southwest Guilford) is there(at UNCP) as defensive back and there may be more, we will have to look and cook them up…For WSSU, you have the veteran kicker from High Point Central in Will Johnson…Will does the punting and the kicking for the Rams and was listed as preseason All-CIAA…Justin Johnson(High Point Central) has been slated to be the starting QB for WSSU….Albert McLean(Dudley) who attended Ferndale Middle, right beside HP Central and then later on his family moved to Greensboro, Albert is on the defensive line for WSSU….We may have more, we will need to look them and cook them up…
Elon at Wake Forest, at the BB&T Field in Winston-Salem with Tre Lennon(Smith HS) still at WR for Elon and Thuc Phan(Page HS) still listed as RB and kick return man for Elon, plus the Kalin McNeil(Northeast Guilford) has been on the charts as a linebacker for WFU…
Might be more we will or you can add them in and we will go look up a few more for this blog post…..
Also tonight you have Duke at Tulane 9:30pm on CBS Sports TV and Pikeville at Campbell….Kevin Gehsmann(Western Guilford) at Duke as a LB and Dalton Dillon(Northwest Guilford) should still be at Campbell, as an RB….Also for Campbell you have Austin Coltrane(DB) from Northern Guilford, Shawn Millsap(High Point Christian Academy) at TE and Jacob Roberts(Northern Guilford) on the OL, plus De’Shawn Jones(RB) from Grimsley HS…..Dalton Dillon now listed at 6’1/225 RB for the Camels….Coltrane at 5’11/180….
