East Forsyth at Grimsley this Friday night and do we have MORE Predictions???
We only have a couple of games to look back at today, and we could say we are little bit late getting the Saturday morning November 30 edition of the Saturday Morning Rewind up here late due to the fact that it is the Weekend, but we always have the Rewind up here on the Weekend…We could use the excuse that we are going a bit slower today due to the fact that this is the Holiday Edition, but that is not a valid offering, so let’s just pack away the excuses, and save them for Christmas morning and here comes the, here comes the, here comes the Saturday Morning Rewind…..Later than Sooner…..
CLICK HERE for Grimsley-Glenn, from Joe Sirera at the News and Record’s HSXtra section….
“We felt like it would be hard for them to drive the football on us and we didn’t want to give up any big plays. … Coming into the East Forsyth game (a 21-20 loss Oct. 4), our kids definitely felt they could play with them. That says a lot about East Forsyth and the program they have, because that’s the standard we want to be at. That’s what we’ve been working to get to. Our guys left that game thinking, ‘OK, we can play with anybody in the state.’ We know we have to play well and we can’t make mistakes. They’re a really well-coached football team.” — Darryl Brown, Grimsley coach
For a bonus and this is a good way to get cracking and tracking for next week, CLICK HERE for Spencer Turkin, at the News and Record HSXtra section and he will give us the Game Report on East Forsyth at Grimsley. from back on October 4…In looking back, we can be looking ahead to next week’s BIG Matchup with East Forsyth at Grimsley, for the NCHSAA 4-A West Regional Title…..Again, a great way to be looking back, but still be looking ahead, to next Friday night 7:30pm, at Jamieson Stadium…We will have the game right here for you on, GreensboroSports Radio…..

Notable Notes and Quotes from the coaches….
“I couldn’t be prouder of our kids. The hardest part of (building) a team is getting people to deny themselves for the sake of the team. But you can’t do that unless you give. And before you give, you’ve got to love.” — Johnny Boykin, Ragsdale coach
“One thing we know, Coach Boykin … Johnny’s a great coach, man. And they made some great halftime adjustments, kind of sold out for the run and kind of hit us in the mouth offensively those first two times. But we responded. I think Coach (Ronnie) Horton had some great play calls, and to grind out that win was just spectacular.” — Todd Willert, East Forsyth coach
++++++++++That is it for this week, but we are in the process of digging up some more game news on other games from Friday night, that you might be interested in…That Myers Park Mustangs at Richmond County Raiders game sounds like it was the REAL DEAL last night…++++++++++
CLICK HERE for Brevard at Reidsville, coming in from Jim Sands with the News and Record’s HSXtra Section from Rockingham County Now….A lot of fans are getting ready to rally around Reidsville and here they come again, the Reidsville Rams….
“Like I said last week, it’s a great time to be playing. It’s food, fun and football and then getting to play a quality opponent like Brevard the day after Thanksgiving is fun. We had to grit it out and find a way to win. Credit our guys. They found a way to get it done. … I think we found a couple of things that we could run against them and we just kept going back to it, and I think that helped us.” — Jimmy Teague, Reidsville coach
CLICK HERE for David Kehrli at the Burlington Times-News on the Eastern Alamance win at Havelock….
EA Eagles coach John Kirby on his team only giving up 7 points to powerful Havelock….
“Our defense played extremely well. I can’t say enough,” Eastern Alamance coach John Kirby said. “To give up one score to these guys here.”
Some pretty neat video on Will Shipley, from Weddington High School and his similarities to Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers….I was just talking earlier in the week with Steve Warren, from Steak n Shake and Gateway Management, and he was telling me the same thing….Will Shipley very similar to Christian McCaffrey…
CLICK HERE for Myers Park at Richmond County….35-32 Richmond County the winner from Herb White at the Charlotte Observer….
“We needed a stop when we got it to 24-13, and we didn’t. They came down and scored. That was probably the biggest possession of the game there.” — Scott Chadwick(Myers Park Mustangs coach) on when the game turned.
