Danny Pigge’s Pigskin Preview/High School Football Tonight and our Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists Game of the Week

We are closing out the Middle School Football Season on Wednesday, and moving on with the NCHSAA High School football playoffs, here on Thursday night…

We have two of our local teams set to play tonight, and the other two Guilford County teams are due up, and looking to still play on Friday night…They are waiting to see what the Friday weather will do, and if Friday becomes a wash, then they may have to give it go on Saturday night….

Many teams across the area are playing the game of “wait and see”, but Dudley and Eastern Guilford are both set to go tonight, and then again Grimsley and Northwest Guilford, will wait and see what happens on Friday…

Both plans of attack may end up being the ‘right route’, we will just have to wait and see…
