It looks very much like the Player of the Year in Guilford County will be decided on the field this Friday night when Dudley visits Page at Marion Kirby Stadium….Looks like it will come down to Hendon Hooker(Dudley HS), Javon Leake(Page HS) and Will Jones(Page HS) and everyone will get a chance to make a statement for their cause, on Friday night…..
If you are working on picking an All-Guilford County High School Football Team for 2016 you have to have both Hendon Hooker(Dudley HS) and Will Jones(Page HS) at QB, at least that is the way we see it right now….
Runningbacks if you are looking at two, you have to have Javon Leake(Page HS) and Chavis Little(High Point Central HS)…Wide receivers we like Tre Turner(Northwest Guilford HS), Nic Cheeley(Eastern Guilford HS) and Thomas Hennigan(Northwest Guilford HS) and with the numbers that he has put up, Curt Ervin from High Point Central HS gets a big argument on his behalf too….The thing hurting Central’s reps is the team’s rep at (3-6) overall….And you could almost put Thomas Hennigan into his own category as an Athlete only….
You got the QB/QB’s, the RB’s and WR’s and then on the offensive line you have to look at Bryson Speas from Dudley, Dacquori Wilson from Dudley, Spencer Clapp from Eastern Guilford and Clapp might get perks from being on both sides of the line for EG, we looking closely too at Nick Mackovic, the center from Page for one of these spots and the other offensive lineman, the jury is still out on them/him….
Seems like a lot of Dudley, Page and Eastern Guilford and with the three teams being a combined 27-1, I guess so…..
On defense, you have to have Awstyn Williams from Dudley up front, Tyler DeBerry from Page, Tre Love from Southeast Guilford….We may need a fourth DL up here and we are still open for suggestions….Could also look toward Clapp from EG if we were to move him over full time to the defensive side of the ball and also a look toward Amin Elamrani(Northeast Guilford HS) with 2 defensive fumbles returned for TD’s this year and if you move Zach Tyler down into the line from LB, you could give him a look from Northwest Guilford HS….Still looking at a lot and going for quality calls here, even if it limits the number of schools of choice and sends the bacon to just a few schools, on this squad, you want the very best, so here they are and you can send yours in here….
With the linebackers you need to have both Nigel Peele and Patrick Conner from Dudley on here, plus Kyin Howard from Eastern Guilford and we have been following Jaylen Covington, from Southwest Guilford very closely this year….Alan Tisdale, from Page a very good one too, but he has been banged up part of this season…Tisdale plays like a LB/DB hybrid-style….
DB’s again Dudley has two of the best around in Brion Seagraves and Myles White and you put in Bryant Barr from Eastern Guilford and Brelin Faison-Walden from Grimsley and that might just be your four right there….Faison-Walden, another DB/LB hybrid-type player…
The kicker/punter right off the bat, I am going with Thomas Murray of Page and Cody Creed from Northwest Guilford has had a successful season too, but we lean strong toward Murray right now….If I am taking two return-men, I will go with Javon Leake on punts and with Nile Harris(Grimsley HS) on kickoffs right now and with Harris, you might also want to study Justin Guy from Southeast Guilford at that spot….
As for the big game on Friday, we are taking Dudley and for the JV game on Thursday, we are taking Page…..Have not seen the Dudley JV play this year and we are sure that they will be fired up at home, but Page has that trio Page, Davis and King and they can do their thing…
In the varsity game with Page vs. Dudley/Dudley vs. Page, I would say like many others are probably saying that the ‘Dudley D’ will be the key and for both teams, play-calling will be crucial….Can be no playing around with the play-calling in this game and some of the things that you have used in the past and it goes for both teams, you can’t use them this time around…Play-calling and with the downs and distance and the time of the game for a certain call, will be Crucial and if it went that way, that would be Krucial with a capital K…..Any way, picking Page in the JV game and Dudley in the varsity game and let’s go varsity with the score of Dudley 27, Page 14….Just thoughts and not a bad idea to be game-planning this early in the week, on a big week like this one….
Way too much copy for you to read here today and I need to hit the streets and leave some of this typing behind, and get up off of my be-hind….
