**********Recognizing/Celebrating the Senior Athletes from around Guilford County**********
Today we bring on the Dudley Panthers, from James B. Dudley High School, on Lincoln Street here in Greensboro…
(The Dudley Senior Athlete page is sponsored by Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists…The doctors will see you now at 1130 North Church Street here in Greensboro, or you can call them at 336-375-2300…Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists, supporting all of our Guilford County Schools and here today with the Dudley Panthers’ Senior Athletes).
Dudley has had a powerhouse when come to athletics from over the years, and now is the time to begin to look at the group of Senior Athletes from Dudley, as they come to us, from the Class of 2020….
The Dudley Athletic Department is led by Athletic Director Art Wade…Dudley has a very solid coaching staff with Coach Steven Davis, a sure future Guilford County Sports Hall of Famer leading the Panthers’ football program, Frank McNeil is a veteran coach who directs the girls basketball program, and Coach McNeil just picked up win #200 this past season(We were there for that Win #200 and that was some kind of game that night), while Coach Ferguson, a former State Champion player for Coach David Price, Coach Ferg spearheads the boys basketball program, plus Rod Gorham just took over for baseball coach Larry Farrer this past season, and we always wish Coach Farrer the best, as he battles health issues…
Those coaches are your backbone/neckbone coaches and all of the Dudley coaches and athletic leaders are pushing the Panthers, under the overall direction of AD Art Wade…Dudley provides a true proving ground, for young high school athletes who want to continue to develop their game on the high school level, and are willing to be made ready for the college level, that lies ahead…
Dudley key administrative staffers include James Moore Assistant Principal, Tracey Norton Assistant Principal, Fredrick Sellars Assistant Principal, Tanya Wingate Assistant Principal, Angela Morris Dean of Students, and the man up at the top of the totem pole, Rodney Wilds Principal at James B. Dudley High School…
It is just about time to introduce the Dudley HS Senior Athletes, and we need to do a quick spotlight on boys basketball player Jeremiah Dickerson….This kid really battled and he maintained his character, while working very hard to land a spot on a college basketball team, and he got it…See JD/Jeremiah Dickerson below, and he will go to Paine College, and will play college hoops there…Jeremiah really applied his overall effort into getting that college spot, and he is to be commended for his approach and again for maintaining high character qualities, throughout the college application process…
Mike Wyman/”Big Mike” is already down at South Carolina for Gamecocks football, while we will soon see the speed of Marlon Darby and the power running of Nashon Wilhite at Elizabeth City State University, serving/playing for the Vikings…Branson Adams headed to Western Carolina and Myles Murphy going to North Carolina, are other feature football players moving on up, as Mr. Jefferson used to say….
Also grabbing my attention is Morgan Carson, on her way to play college golf, on Scholarship, at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte…
Best of Luck to all of the Dudley Panthers’ Senior Athletes as they are moving on, and moving on up to the college level…
Now time for me to hush up and let the Senior Athletes begin their march across the GreensboroSports.com stage, as we cross over Lincoln Street…
Our graduation march music is Pomp and Circumstance, and maybe this will end up being our ‘Song of the Year’…
Click On and March On, as the Senior Athletes cross the staging area…
Here come the Panthers now….
