High School Football Saturday Morning Rewind:Looking back at “The Game” and Congratulations to the Eastern Guilford Wildcats on a great ‘Road Run’

High School Football in Guilford County added a whole new chapter to its legacy late last evening, as the Grimsley Whirlies out-lasted the Hough Huskies, with the Greensboro Grimsley bunch winning a “Thriller”, in Triple Overtime, at Bob Jamieson Stadium…I do think Mr. Jamieson would be very proud of how the Whirlies performed and how they persevered to move on to Round Five, and the NCHSAA 4-A West Regional Championship Game…John Madden would have loved this one too…

You have to feel for the Eastern Guilford Wildcats on this Saturday morning after Thanksgiving, after the ‘Cats came up just short, falling 28-25 to South Point, down in Belmont last night…It was a great road run for the “Road Dogs” from Gibsonville, and we congratulate Coach Tony Aguilar and his young men on their outstanding 2022 high school football campaign…

We are more than proud of the way all of our Guilford County teams have battled this season, and now we have one team/school left to carry on our Guilford County Banner…One school will represent Greensboro/Guilford County, and the 336, when the whistle blows again next Friday evening…The Grimsley Whirlies are moving on, and let’s all do all we can, to move on with them…

Now moving to the magic of the Rewind Button, let’s “Hit It”, and get her rolling for this Saturday morning…

CLICK HERE for Joe Sirera, at the News and Record, with his HSXtra report on the Grimsley Whirlies over the Hough Huskies, from last night at Bob Jamieson Stadium…We almost always look first to Joe, since he is the pro, and the man in the know…

CLICK HERE for the Woody Marshall photos coming in from the Grimsley-Hough game, at the News and Record…

CLICK HERE for a very solid detailed report on Eastern Guilford at South Point, coming in from Anthony Perkins at the Carolina Varsity.com…This was a back-and-forth game, and Eastern Guilford actually out-gained South Point in total offense, as the EG Wildcats amassed 417 yards of Total Offense…Good read for all of the EG Wildcat, and all football fans here…

CLICK HERE for Joe L Hughes II at the Gaston Gazette, on Eastern Guilford at South Point from Friday night…Not a very long report, and here is pretty much what he was/is saying…..
3A West:Cam Medlock shouldered the load for South Point in a winning effort, rushing for 203 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries in the Red Raiders’ 28-25 win over Eastern Guilford. Patrick Blee also rushed for a touchdown. Chanyce Ford returned a blocked punt 48 yards for a TD in the South Point (13-1) victory. The Red Raiders move on to face East Lincoln (14-0) in the 3A West regional final.

Full Disclosure…I did not see any of the Friday Football Shows last night on local TV…The Friday Football Fever Show from WFMY TV 2 has hung up it cleats for the season, and I do not see anything new listed under the Friday Football Frenzy from FOX 8…Can’t find a WXII High School Football Playbook either, so I am guessing those shows are all OUT…

CLICK HERE to listen back to the Hough at Grimsley game, from GreensboroSports Radio…Don Tilley and Don Moore with us, making The Rewind, wind on…Good pregame interviews with both of the coaches…You can learn a lot about each team, from hearing the coaches speak….

CLICK HERE for the Friday Night Finish, from out staff at GreensboroSports.com…We thank the Game of Inches crew and WFMY TV 2’s Brian Hall for the video and photos that we grabbed from them on Twitter….

Here is how the Brian Simmons picks looked going into the Friday Night Games:
#5 Hough (11-2) at #1 Grimsley (13-0) – H by 8…The Charlotte sports talking group, led by Langston Wertz Jr. were all picking Hough to win too…All five of the Charlotte experts, took the Hough Huskies….
#23 Eastern Guilford (9-4) at #11 South Point (12-1) – S by 20…Not a 20 point South Point Red Raiders win, but you can Holla if you hear me…

The entire look for this past Friday, from Brian Simmons, at NCPreps.com and we are not giving anything away here, since all of these games are already in the bag…..
