• THE TOP TWO TEAMS IN EACH POOL WILL PLAY FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP
*****For Dudley, the defending 4-A State Champions, and now playing on the 3-A level, you should see Richard Monroe(Junior), Alston Hooker(Sophomore) and Gerald Simpson(Senior) all getting some time at QB this season, with Monroe, the front-runner, since he backed up starter Hendon Hooker last season. Nigel Fitzgerald is a highly-touted wide receiver that is returning for the Panthers and Dwayne DJ Crossen is an athlete that will see time on both sides of the ball for Dudley….Crossen is a playmaker, and he is joined by RB Zariek Rush, who is one of the top running backs in the state and he an catch a flare pass out of the backfield, and he can go all the way….Rush runs tall and fast….Dudley is loaded again and ready to make a run at another state title, and this time on the 3-AA level…..*****
+++++On defense and this part of the game, the linemen, will not effect the 7 on 7’s, but for Dudley on defense, Caleb Matthews, the kid that transferred in last year from Page, he is back and bigger and even much stronger that he was last season, plus Reggie Robertson, another stout defensive lineman, is back for Dudley too on the line….If you are going to try and catch Dudley, you better catch them on their Off Week, that might be the only time you can slow them down…..
I saw the kid that could well be the top QB in Guilford County in 2017 and that was Jaren Rainey, from Southwest Guilford and I saw him at the Guilford College 7 on 7’s back on Saturday…..Rainey can sling it long and he is accurate and since he is tall back there at QB, he sort of reminds of Jeff Simms(6’5) from Smith, back when Jeff was throwing it long for Eric Ebron, at Ben L. Smith…Jaren doesn’t have an Eric Ebron, but Rainey(6’4) can go long and he can bring rain….Rainey is also playing at safety on defense….Makes for nice tall DB back there for Southwest Guilford…..Rainey will be in line to the be the Player of the Year in Guilford County, if he puts up the numbers that will be expected of him….Dudley will also have their share of POY candidates, along with Alan Tisdale from Page, plus Nile Harris from Grimsley and Dominique Graves from Eastern Guilford and Tre Turner, from Northwest Guilford…..Got any other strong candidates?????+++++
