NC Preseason All-State High School Football Team and we find Jamaal Jarrett, from Grimsley High School, on the Defensive Line

from is pleased to announce their pre-season all-state football team for the upcoming 2022 season. Voting was done by head high school football coaches from all over the state that participated in the publication.

At the time of the 2022 NC Prep Football News Yearbook went to print, running back Daylan Smothers of West Charlotte High School was voted pre-season player of the year and all-state by the coaches. But he is currently ineligible pending an appeal, which had not been determined at the time we went to print

Here are the selections for offense, defense, athletes, and special teams.
(Sort of surprises us, over at, that we see no R.J. Baker from Dudley High School, at running back, and no Logan Wright, from Dudley High School, on the defensive line…Also I do believe that Aidan Bonde, from Southeast Guilford High School, might be the best overall high school kicker in the state…Bonde among the best in the state, in field goals/extra points, kickoffs, and punts. I would also be giving Vance Bolyard, from Northern Guilford HS, a long look at that Tight End position.)
