Grimsley hoping for a fast start and wants to control this game and keep the Hough offense off of the field, and don’t give the Huskies a chance to get started…The Grimsley ground game was very sharp last week vs. Sun Valley and Grimsley would like to get similar productivity going on vs. Hough, and that would open up the outside game with Taylor and Anderson…Hough has Hauser and Grimsley would just as soon see him seated…Kick your seat Houser, and we do not want to see him on the field, unless his is in Punt Formation….In the Grimsley-Hough matchup in the playoffs last season, the Grimsley kicker made the difference…..
Last season on November 26, 2022:
GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA – Sophomore kicker Jackson Henry calmly booted a 20-yard field, in the third overtime, to lift the Grimsley Whirlies to a thrilling, 40-37, victory over Hough in a quarterfinal round game of the North Carolina 4A state playoffs, Friday night.

Grimsley (14-0) survived an epic back-and-forth battle which saw six lead changes and three ties, before Henry’s decisive boot set off a massive celebration for the Whirles and their faithful.

Got to have that inside feeling that this game might take on the 2022 personality tonight, and that the Grimsley Whirlies, having been there before, they will be ready for the finish again this evening…Got to be ready to face and meet the challenge, and now is the time to step up and let it be known that Grimsley is right and ready for this….

3-A West:
#5 JM Robinson(12-0) at #4 Dudley(12-0) 7pm at Tarpley Stadium
We will have this game for you on GreensboroSports Radio with Don Tilley and Nile Harris with us in the broadcast booth….Each week, a different Dudley receiver has been stepping up to lead the Panthers with 100-plus yards in receptions…Three weeks ago, it was Nasir Newkirk who took the lead, two weeks ago it was CJ Neely stepping up, and then last week Kordell Bartley was the man out front in the receiving formation….Dudley can the run the ball too, with juniors LJ Southern and Jayden Brown ready to answer the call….Senior QB Andrew Attmore II has been throwing darts to his junior receiving corp of Newkirk, Neely and Bartley, and don’t rule out Jerron Blackwell in a spot to make a big catch/reception or Blackwell taking off on a long run, as the Dudley Panthers’ wildcat QB…The Dudley defense must not let JM Robinson get rolling…Robinson has the stats and the numbers, but Dudley must present to the Bulldogs the toughest defense that team has seen all season…Can’t let a team with a 2,000 yard passer and a 2,000 yard runner get started good…Must make tackles that send a message that this will be a hard night for anyone that touches the football….Robinson’s RB Wright must be forced to have a long night, with only short runs…Got to get the QB Lee off of his axis…Dudley LBs Latrell Wilson, Kameron Baldwin, Robert McCollum, and DJ Parker must get to the ball in unison….This will be a battle of wills, and will Dudley find the formula needed for success??? This game is coming up Tonight as the Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists Game of the Week for you, on GreensboroSports Radio….JM Robinson was down 17-13 to Northwest Cabarrus last week going into the fourth quarter…Robinson QB Lee threw two picks/interceptions last week, and with Dudley Panthers pressure, Lee might do that again this week at Tarpley Stadium….Pressure and who can handle it, will be the key to this contest…Late-game situations have not been something that Dudley has had to face so far this season, but tonight, that might change…Got to be ready to go get it…Dudley can do this and it is time to show that they can….

One thought on “High School Football Tonight in Guilford County and around the area: Our Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists Game of the Week

  1. I’m thinking we win by two TDs this year. We are better all around. Haven’t seen a more talent at every position team like this one in many years.

    Good luck to Dudley and Grimsley tonight! Bring it home to the boro!
