The Playoffs are getting near and with just one week until “Selection Saturday” from the NCHSAA, many of our teams are starting to sift and shift, as several are on the way in and many others are on the way out….Today we will rewind our Thursday and Friday night games, that we have seen played over the past two days/nights….
We saw clouds, we saw rain, and as JT once said, “I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end”….So, JT/James Taylor, the great meteorologist that you are, you should have told us that we would not see the sunny days until Saturday of this week, but so much for that, here goes the Saturday Morning Rewind…..

No Sleepwalking/Siestas for the News and Record’s Joe Sirera, but he must of thought he was taking in the “Night of the Walking Dead”, when the Dudley Panthers could not get their offense going on Thursday night at Tarpley Stadium….No siesta for Mr. Sirera, but he did see Mount Tabor’s QB JaQuan Albright say Hasta La Vista/See You Later four times in this game, and Dudley may not want to see Albright on another night this season, but here is the reason, things weren’t going to pleasing for Dudley….

“I’m not going to say hold the weight. I’ll say lead,” said Albright, a senior. “I had to lead the team. It feels good to have a conference championship and bring it two times back-to-back to Mount Tabor High School.”

Quote from Coach Fritz:“I don’t think it’s an official title or anything, but I’ve been in Alamance County for over 30 years and it’s certainly a source of pride because there’s a lot of good football in Alamance County,” Hessenthaler said. “If you can come out on top in Alamance, I think you have a chance to do some things in the playoffs.”
