It is now cool and it was in the neighborhood of COLD last night for our Friday night high school football games….We have your Rewind ready to roll and we will try and not stir up too much extra air, as we get the Rewind turning on this Saturday morning….You get an extra hour of sleep tonight/Sunday morning, so bundle up, as you hit the sack tonight…
Up first this morning we turn to Joe Sirera, from the HSXtra at the News and Record and we have Joe’s twist on last night’s 33-25 win by Grimsley over Ragsdale at Jamieson Stadium…CLICK HERE and check out the Quick Take on this ball game…Ragsdale has come a long way this season and it is a credit to the Tigers for the game that they gave Grimsley last night, and a credit to Whirlies for standing up and winning the game with pressure on them to win the Conference…
“It was an extremely physical game, a really tough game. I thought Ragsdale played really well, and Coach Boykin does a great job. I was proud of our kids and how they hung in there, kept grinding and kept fighting. We found a way to win.” — Darryl Brown, Grimsley coach
“We thought we had a chance if we could play well up front. … What you saw today — beyond the penalties that really did us in — was our guys playing with great resilience. We had to because we knew they were going to make some plays, but the resiliency to fight back is what this team is going to be remembered for.” — Johnny Boykin, Ragsdale coach
CLICK HERE for an interesting read from Doug Mead at the WS Journal, on WS Parkland’s 6-0 victory over Mount Tabor, and Denoris Wardlow with three interceptions for Parkland and he took one back for a TD/Pick Six and the game’s only score and after Parkland was plastered last week, 56-12 by the Dudley Panthers, the Mustangs won a Must-Game and this is worth looking into…Mount Tabor had the football at the Parkland one-yard line with just seconds left in the game…
CLICK HERE for J.P. Mundy, with the HSXtra at the News and Record, on Dudley at Southwest Guilford and a big night for Dudley seniors, Branson Adams and Marlon Darby…

CLICK HERE for Tim Nash, HSXtra at the News and Record and he is on the Burlington Williams at Southeast Guilford game and how the Falcons are looking/working to go Undefeated in conference play again this season…
“We had a little bit of a rough start tonight, but we kept pressing.” – Southeast coach Kennedy Tinsley.
“Jaden (Fairley) is a big-time player and a big-time athlete. You have to give credit to the offensive line, too. They’ve been playing well.” – Tinsley
CLICK HERE for Philip Deutsch from HSXtra, at the News and Record and his take on Southern Guilford at Southern Alamance at last night…..Jacob Freeze big on a cold night for the Southern Alamance Patriots…
CLICK HERE for Adam Smith with the Burlington Times-News on Southern Guilford at Southern Alamance and an interesting quote from Southern Alamance RB Jacob “Big” Freeze:“I don’t know if I’ve ever been yelled at so much by coaches,” Southern Alamance senior Jacob Freeze said. “But it put us in our place and we knew what we had to do coming out of halftime.”
CLICK HERE for Jim Sands with Rockingham County Now on Morehead at Northern Guilford, and Northern picked up two of their TD’s, on two pick sixes…
“We’ve been talking about that these last couple of weeks. We’ve got to come out here and take care of business. We did that against Rockingham last week and again tonight against Morehead. We are peaking at the right time and that is what I keep telling my guys — we are talking about playoff football, so we’ve just got to stay on this track and we are heading in that direction.” — head coach Erik Westberg, Northern Guilford
