High School Football Saturday Morning Rewind:Still Desperately Seeking a true Sense of the Season of ’17(Lots of Links/NEG’s win over Morehead is now avail)

*****We will find that true sense of the Season of ’17 with some very handy Links here for you this morning/afternoon…..*****

CLICK HERE for Joe Sirera at the News and Record on Eastern Guilford over Southeast Guilford last night at the Bill Slayton Stadium…Four picks by SEG and Eastern coach Doug Robertson said:
“We put our best 11 on defense,” Robertson said. “We always have and we’re going to continue to do that, and we’re going to win with defense and special teams. Collin (Smith) did a great job of pinning them deep with great punting.”
*****There’s an excellent photo from Andrew Krech of the N&R showing EG QB Dominique Graves doing his best Cam Newton move diving to the end zone and holding/sticking the ball over the goal line…*****

CLICK HERE for David Kehrli from the Burlington Times-News on the Eastern Guilford at Southeast Guilford game….On EG DB Nic Cheeley from Wildcats’ coach Doug Robertson:(Eastern Guilford junior Nic Cheeley had two interceptions at opportune times, halting solid drives by the Falcons each time.)
“He has been big all year,” Robertson said. “I think he has got eight interceptions on the year now, probably leads the state in interceptions. He’s in position, he does what he’s supposed to do and he makes big plays.”
Note:A receiver makes a great pass catcher on defense…..

CLICK HERE for Page past Northwest Guilford from J.P. Mundy at the News and Record with Page QB Javondre Paige throwing for 4 TD’s and running for 2….Page coach Jared Rolfes:“We managed the game well and we ran the football well,” he said. “Being able to score what we did was important for our confidence. Our confidence-building this week and the next few weeks is huge for us.”

Dudley took down Western Guilford hard last night, 49-20 at WG’s Doug Henderson Stadium and the reports tell us Dudley dominated with Panther QB Gerald Simpson throwing three TD’s and WG facing Dudley’s second unit, most of the second half…Have seen most of the Dudley inside numbers and have not seen info yet on WG QB Edrick Purnell, who had some impressive numbers going into that game….
Dudley was dominant and you can read more on this one when you CLICK HERE for the Jason Gaertner report from the News and Record….
Dudley coach Steven Davis:“At the beginning of the game, everything was working for us,” said Dudley coach Stephen Davis. “We put our second group in, during the second half. We might need those guys later on down the road. Also, our offense was very efficient.”

CLICK HERE for a big win by Glenn, 26-10, over East Forsyth and it was the first time in 10(years) that Glenn has grabbed a win over East….Coming in from Conner O’Neill at the Winston-Salem Journal….
“It means a lot, it means a lot to the school. More so than anything else it means a lot to the school. These guys worked so hard,” Glenn coach Antwon Stevenson said. “But to be able to go out here and say they were the team that finally turned the tide is a big deal.”
+++++“I prayed about this game for a long time, and I told God, ‘If we win this game, I’d go to the 50-yard line and thank him.’ All praise to the man above,” Glenn QB Stephon Brown said after accounting for all four of Glenn’s touchdowns — two rushing and two passing.+++++

CLICK HERE for Joe Dexter at Rockingham County Now on Northeast Guilford’s 49-14 Homecoming win over Morehead and NEG Rams’ coach Earl Bates had a good spin on his Rams’ preparation for this game….
“We put a lot of emphasis on us not taking anyone for granted this past week,” said Northeast head coach Earl Bates, who left Morehead following the 2015 season to take the head coaching job at Southern Guilford. The former Reidsville assistant went 20-39 in five seasons as the Panther head coach – leading a talented squad to the third round of the playoffs in 2015.
“We didn’t play very well down in Rockingham last Friday night and we wanted to come out and clean up some things that we did bad last week. We turned the ball over a little too much, but for the most part we did better,” Bates said.


  1. It’s too soon to give up on Wallace. Rolfes left him an absolute mess.
    Rolfes either drove assistants away over the last few years or took many with him when he left last June. Wallace needs time to cleanup the mess. It’s just a shame Rolfes ruined the high school football experience for these older boys. He was a terrible hire from day one.

    I do believe NW will come prepared next season. Hopefully, they can convince players who left to come back. Rolfes lost so many boys during his tenure and Wallace needs to let them know things will be different to get the numbers up.

    I’d love to know the story behind Woodruff. I find it hard to believe he would come back. NW does need a long term committed coach. I hope the AD vetted Wallace so that he isn’t another short term situation.

  2. The current NW football coach is not the answer. Have you actually been to a NW football game recently? This coach does not interact with his players during the game. The previous coach absolutely communicated with players on both the JV and varsity. The current coach has forgotten about the JV team, does not work well with his coaches during the game and has thus lost his players respect. The players loved Rolfes because he spoke to them and sold them hope for the future. Rolfes was very active on the sidelines the other night with the players and his coaches. Some people may not have liked Rolfes but it was not his coaches and players for the most part. Today’s NW football team is walking on thin ice. It will get worst this year. The program will not be better next year because players no long believe in the program. I am a parent that knows what is happening. There is drama building in the background but many just want to get the season over with and be done with NW football.

  3. Anybody ever read the book “Who Moved My Cheese?” Get over it!!
    Coach Rolfes prepared his guys by instituting the 20 meter Pacer!! Perhaps NW ought to try this grueling workout!!

  4. Easy for you to say, Larry R. If it was your son living this nightmare, it wouldn’t be so easy. These are good hardworking kids and what is being done to them is wrong. Somebody at NW better take ownership and figure it out fast.
