High School Football Saturday Morning Rewind:What really happened on Friday September 24???

What really happened on our Friday football fields, back one day ago/on September 24, 2021???

There is only one way to find out, and that is we must take a trip back, go back one day to yesterday, that is going back to Friday night, and we need to hit the football fields again, and hit them hard, and make a lasting impression, and there is only one way to accomplish this feat, we have to Rewind the Tape….Bring back our video controls man, who works only for us, and he is Mr. George Michael and he has contact with all of the key components that make this Saturday Morning Rewind the event it has become over the years….

George are you ready? I said George are you ready?? Hey, George are you ready??? I think he heard me that third time, and so here we go, I will step away and let George take over the controls, and we/he will bring you today, The Saturday Morning Rewind, coming to us today from The George Michael Sports Machine studios at WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., one of NBC’s owned and operated stations….

Interesting game down in Charlotte last night from Steve Lyttle, with the Charlotte Observer…

Charlotte Latin appeared to have lost its game with Charlotte Christian when a field goal in the final minute went wide left.

But that play didn’t count.

Then the Hawks won the game on a touchdown run, but that also didn’t count.

Then Latin won on a field goal, but that one didn’t count either.

Finally, on the final play of the game Friday night, Dave Mosrie kicked a 37-yard field goal that did count, and the Hawks knocked off rival and defending state private school champion Charlotte Christian 24-22.

“They showed a lot of grit, to keep coming back,” said Hawks head coach Justin Hardin, whose team is off to a 5-0 start (1-0 in the Big South 4A). “That’s the kind of team this is.”

**********Our boat is still in the water, but our correspondent George Michael must now head on back out to sea…**********
For our/your information:The very last episode of the George Michael’s Sports Machine aired on March 25, 2007. After thanking his co-host, sponsors, syndicators and staff, Michael said this at the end of the show:

I close every show every Sunday/Saturday Morning Rewind by saying, “Thank you for letting us be a part of your weekend.” Well, tonight, for the final time, we say, “thank you.” Thank you for letting us be a part of your life. From everyone at the Sports Machine, have a great weekend, everybody. We hope to see you somewhere down the road of life. Thank you.

Michael then walked off camera, and was heard to say “Last one out, turn out the lights!” as the show closed for the final time.

RIP George Michael:March 24, 1939-December 24, 2009

  1. This week’s edition of the Saturday Morning Rewind is one of those where the Saturday Morning Rewind, becomes the Saturday Evening/Afternoon Post….

  2. The home crowd at Northern Guilford HS on Friday night was one of the largest and most outgoing group of fans that I have seen so far this high school football season….
