    Power Echols LB 2021

    I saw Echols 3 times this season and the kid has incredible talent and instinct when he sees it he goes "right now". I also noticed the leadership and respect he gets from his teammates which is rare for a Soph. His humble attitude and work ethic at this point is what separates him...as the lights get brighter and the Power 5 schools start to put on the press and tell him how great he is i hope he can keep that perspective. Now as far as the best ever to Suit up at ZB Vance i was able to witness the incredible ability of Rico Bell on offense and defense during his time at Vance....Larenz was good but Rico Bell was the best I have seen in a Vance uniform....my opinion of course...

    Yea I was glad with X as well. With all that he went through with being hurt his first three yrs I was glad to see him do it the right way. He is an old school thumper man! And such a great kid in the building.

    Man We talk about it all the time Work, that JMM group was special. None of us were around at that time but through conversations.. I all would hear about good players at MC during that time was.. he was supposed to come to Vance lol. Geez. And by no means am I dismissing our other two Backers. They are special as well, but the topic was on Power so I only addressed his situation. Stef and Solo are major D1 kids as well with GREAT attitudes and work ethic! You guys may think I am crazy but it will be hard to find a better core at any public school in AMERICA.

    I know Freedom is well coached and a decent conference but not sure how competitive it is up around Asheville this year

    Freedom and Erwin are usually strong. Little surprised to see Enka. I don't ever recall them being a player. Good for them, though.

    Freedom, Enka and Erwin in the mix also. The West has majority of the top ten teams this year in 3a ladies

    The team Larenz played for had numerous studs. The coaching was suspect. Hard to imagine how big Bryant would have been, just playing one position. Back than, all the kids from the 9 year undefeated James Martin Middle were not excited about going to Vance. On his 8th grade team at JMM, more than 25 of those kids went on to play college ball. That would have been scary if they all went to Vance.

    It sure is. I've got to make it down that way to see at least one of those teams in action. I saw Carson last year. Looks like they haven't missed a beat. Southwest Randolph's not too shabby either. Would say Rockingham County also but they've been East the last few years.

    Dont forget about stephon thompson. I said preseason this kid is a stud. Hes not even playing the position he wants to play n still had 10+ sacks and 80+ tackles. Hell even the 3rd Lb Solo has a UNC offer. Best LB Corp in the state, even tho in a losing effort to see Wake Forest have the problems on offense in the title game really pleased me.

    Xavier and Nate Lynn are 2 kids we wished we had their whole HS career. Both are legit D1 talent that could went P5 (AAC). But glad to see them go 2 William and Mary and Richmond.

    North Iredell, Carson, West Rowan will probably see SE Guilford girls come playoff time.....West is gonna be brutal for the ladies

    I have to say I'm a little surprised to see them at 15-0 right now. I'll admit I was not looking for them at all coming into this season. But....here they are. Their most recent wins are a blowout of Mount Airy and a 15 point vic over East Surry. Impressive. I'm going to head over to Bishop tonight to see what they've got. I think it will be a stern test for the Vikes. Bishop's a solid team.

    They will be taking their talents to the corner of Aycock and Spring Garden (UNC-G). They originally committed to Virginia Tech as sophomores. Personally, I think UNCG is a much better fit for them. Plus, they can take on their brother Kam....who's playing for A&T. They also have another brother, KJ, who plays at Greensboro. What's also cool is that their dad, Keyford Langley, also played at UNC-G. What's even cooler is that Guy Shavers (current SW Guilford coach) was teammates with the elder Langley at UnC-G. Needless to say, you would not want to play these guys at a family picnic......

    Here's a brief recap of what went down in Forest Oaks yesterday..... The opening act turned out to one of the best contests of the day. Down by eight going into the fourth quarter, Reidsville came back and sent this one into OT. The Lady Rams eventually took the lead and won the foul-plagued game by the score of 67-65. Reidsville hit some big threes in both of the latter periods to help their cause. Next up was the West Forsyth boys taking on Person. The Rockets erased a ten point deficit at half and eventually held on, 66-62. Person really frustrated WF with their full court pressure. They also got a plethora of quick, easy buckets. The Rockets really embarrassed WF at times. There were a few times when Person would inbound a made basket, throw it the length of the court, and get an easy layup (Carolina-style). Player of the game was easily Rocket point guard Dre Newman. Newman is built like a D-1 linebacker and has a powerful first step. He also almost threw down an awesome dunk off an inbounds pass. Cam Brown also had a nice game for the Rockets. Next up was the Reidsville boys taking on Piedmont Classical. Much to my dismay, Shakeel Moore was not able to go for PC. PC didn't miss too much of a beat though. They pretty much controlled things from start to finish. Their depth and athleticism took a bit of a toll on the Rams. The Joiner brothers are nice prospects (especially Evan). Also liked what i saw out of Trent McIntyre and freshman Amare Miller. Once again, Reidsville's Breon Pass had another nice performance (despite garnering the majority of attention from the PC defense). Final score was 63-58 but the game wasn't as close at the score indicated. Here's the big news of the day: The Ragsdale girls are no longer undefeated. West Forsyth knocked them off 43-36. The Tigers played a great first half and seemed to have West Forsyth's number. However, West made some adjustments and steadily battled back. The Titans caught up with the Tigers and surpassed them late in the third quarter. At the end of the third, point guard Callie Scheier hit the shot of the day. While being double-teamed, Callie drove left of the top of the key and hit a running, off-balanced three at the buzzer. In the fourth quarter, the Titans got some great play from Callie, Destiny Griffin, Shakira Baskerville, and Briuana Booth. Griffin had some great defensive plays this quarter. Ragsdale just seemed to cool off at the wrong time as well. Despite the loss, the Tigers got nice performances from Faith Price and Mariah Frazier. I wouldn't be surprised to see Frazier on a D-1 roster someday. She's very athletic (and good). Next up was the SE Guilford girls taking on Page. This wasn't much of a contest. SE jumped out to a 33-6 lead and cruised. Page looked like they wanted to be anywhere except Forest Oaks. It was my first time seeing the Falcons and a few things caught my eye. Sophomore Emily Liggins can really shoot the basketball. Junior Kennedi Simmons is a good, smart ballplayer. Biggest eye-popper though was freshman Raven Preston. She was really impressive. She's 6-0, versatile, and glides down the court. There was about a three-minute stretch in the first half where it was nothing but Preston grabbing the rebound, going coast-to-coast, and hitting smooth layups. She is Southeast's "Grant Hill". The closing act was the SE boys taking on Wesleyan Academy. I only saw the first half of this one.....but that's all I needed to see. Wesleyan held around a 20 point lead at half and ended up cruising, 93-62. Although they've dropped off a little in the past year, Wesleyan is still formidable. Big man Luke Davis looked like a bonafide Division-one prospect last night. He did a bit of everything, was a presence on defense, and was strong on the boards. Crazy to think that this guy and Dayron Sharpe were in the same frontcourt last year. That's about as strong a frontcourt as you can get. Despite getting blown out, I really enjoyed watching SE's Lars Nilsson. Nilsson is a good, good ballplayer. He's got a good stroke and is fearless taking it to the hole. He is the best player that Southeast has had in a long, long time.

    Power Echols LB 2021

    Trust me...I think the kid is unreal. I also think both running mates are over shadowed. The question was , is he the best player now, versus what he could or might do. Made the same arguement with Zamir versus Quavaris. Q just did more for his team....both were crazy gifted. Hard to project size at 15 years old and there is a chance he falls into tweener stage. We have all seen it before. Doesnt mean he isnt a crazy productive kid. On another note....glad to see Xavier sign at Richmond. Another very underated kid. Thumper.

    Power Echols LB 2021

    Echols is a happy go lucky kid as of now. Lol currently he has more offers than you can shake a stick at, but he does not care to tweet them out lol. His response to every one of them.. “Oh man thanks A lot, I really appreciate it” and he means it. 247 currently have him at zero stars because he has not been to any combines as a freshman or Sophomore. His Parents were both major college athletes and have done a great job of allowing him to just play 3 sports yr round without being pulled in the summer 7 on 7 or the Summer combine circuit. We think he will get to be about 6’2 but even if he does not... this kid could be one of the best runningbacks....One of the best safeties... we have seen him look great at DB in practice. I know Work and a few other Creek guys know Larenz Bryant, Probably the best to EVER suit up at Vance... Power is Larenz +1. Due to the talent around Power, he has not had to do as much as Larenz on Offense and Defense.... but trust me he could be a major issue in that back field. Lol

    I thought Wake County had 23 public high schools playing football?
  26. WiseOne88

    Head Coaches

    I think most black coaches who do get a HC opportunity will get that chance based on the area and the demographics of the school...and I also think there’s a small number of black assistant and HC’s who are certified in PE which in most cases is the vacant position in-house when applying for HC jobs just some factors to consider
