    SMC week 1

    Should be close then
  2. While I agree with your statement to a degree, playing with lightning around is a no-no. While the chances of being struck are very low, it has happened before. Especially in soccer.
  3. The chance of storms look similar Thursday night to Friday night at least in Western NC.
  4. Another thread?? Come on guys. Obviously this needs its own thread so it doesn't take away from other discussion.

    Owen at East Henderson

    Heritage has that mental edge and toughness to win the close games. Special teams could play a factor.. obviously Heritage doesn't believe in it but how does Mitchell and Owen look?

    Mitchell @ Erwin

    Mitchell is too strong up front and will wear Erwin down. Erwin will likely break off some long plays but it won't be enough.

    Northwestern 3A/ 4A Predictions

    You guys have hijacked this thread.

    WHC Season Opener (Aug 23rd)

    Ashe @ Avery Avery should be a little better defensively than last season and their QB can toss it around pretty good. Ashe has to replace a lot of starters off of a very solid 2018 team that ran roughshod over Avery. This year’s game will be much closer but Ashe still has the upper hand. Ashe-27 Avery-14 Owen @ East Henderson Owen is finally starting to climb back up towards the top of the WHC. Transfer Saevion Gibbs makes a huge impact along the lines and Owen has more team speed than many conference teams. East Henderson could score a lot of points last season but must replace many key parts. Owen is the favorite here, but it could turn into a shootout. Owen-40 East-23 Madison @ Carver Madison is taking a LONG trip east towards Winston Salem for a week 1 game against another perennial struggler- Carver. I don’t know a whole lot about Carver but reports from Madison have not been overly encouraging and their stadium itself is currently a safety hazard... Could be a rough season for the Patriots. Carver-21 Madison-14 Mitchell @ Erwin Mitchell should be just a strong or almost as strong as last season up front and has a great QB and WR. Can they finally get over the hump? Heritage and possibly Owen/Polk will stand in their way, but they open up with an always quick Erwin team. The warriors are rebuilding from last season but still have athletes in skill positions to test Mitchell. Mitchell should win the battle up front and control the clock in a nice win. Mitchell- 34 Erwin-21 Brevard @ Mountain Heritage Heritage has become the gold standard in the WHC the last 3 or 4 seasons. This year’s cougars will be very strong up front once again and have the best linebackers in the conference and possibly WNC. They are a little thin at RB but return QB Calin Randolph who can run and throw it. Is there any team mentally and physically tougher than Heritage in North Carolina? Brevard pays their own brand of hard-nosed physical football that almost led them to a state title berth last season. The Blue Devils face a bigger rebuild than Heritage and should be moderate underdogs on the road. Mountain Heritage-36 Brevard-22 Cherokee @ Polk  Some good early reviews from Polk, including a bruising transfer TB/FB from RS Central who will love playing under Coach Bruce Ollis. Cherokee should be overmatched here and Polk is in store for another solid season. Polk-28 Cherokee-7
  9. I hope I'm wrong on the last one! I think overall the gap is still pretty large between the top 3 or 4 teams in the conference and the bottom 3 of Saint Stephens, South Caldwell, and McDowell. Hopefully that gap will start closing soon.
  10. Another season is upon us, I look forward to attending quite a few games after I get back in late August. Some interesting week 1 games, should be more competitive than years past. Game of the Week- Shelby @ Freedom What a dandy this should be. Freedom looks to contend for the conference crown and should have a prolific offense led by Navy commit Birchfield. He has weapons to throw it to and a decent run game. The defense is questionable and has struggled the past few seasons. The Shelby QB can make them pay as the golden lions have reloaded once again and will be a favorite for another state title. I think this could be a high scoring affair with Shelby fans biting their nails until they score a couple late TD's to pull away Shelby 38 Freedom 27 Alexander Central @ Hibriten The cougars of AC have beefed up their non conference schedule, including a week 1 trip to traditional power Hibriten. Hibriten will be looking to replace many starters and will have a new coach from last years team but are still dangerous. Central will look to a balanced attack with RB Montgomery capable of breaking some long runs and hope their success on the JV level starts building into conference titles in varsity. I think this will be a very tight contest that will be decided by turnovers and penalties. I will go with the home team in a close one. Hibriten 27 Alexander Central 21 Statesville @ Hickory I am still asking the same questions as last year about the red tornadoes of Hickory; can they stop anyone and get stronger up front? The athletes are there to contend for the conference but the defense has struggled year in and year out against the better teams they face and the offense wasn't quite as powerful last season. Statesville has owned this series recently winning the past 5. The greyhounds are usually a middle of the road 4A team and that looks to continue this year. Look for another close game with Statesville keeping Hickory at bay for another win. Statesville 28 Hickory 20 West Caldwell @ South Caldwell Just last year this was a conference match up. The warriors have moved on to the 2A level and will look to have more success after a devastating winless season. Early reports are they will be improved, but will it be enough to win some games this year? South Caldwell had some buzz early on but has been disappointing in some reviews in their scrimmages. They should still have enough to get by West again fairly easily. South Caldwell 41 West Caldwell 14 Bandys @ St. Stephens This game has been very close and entertaining the past few seasons with lots of points scored. Bandys had a very nice season in 2018 reaching the third round of the 2AA playoffs. Saint hasnt been able to gain much traction since joining the new Northwestern conference and that will likely continue. Get ready for lots of points and another Bandys victory. Bandys 41 St Stephens 30 TC Roberson @ Watauga Can the pioneers do it again? Coach Ryan Habich has quickly become one of the top names in the state with his work at Watauga. The Pioneers have dominated the Northwestern conference the past few seasons and will be a favorite to win it again with talented back Satterfield rejoining the team despite his dad's new job coaching the Louisville Cardinals. Watauga has struggled some defensively in scrimmages and will have to get that fixed before playing powerful offenses like Freedom and Hickory. TC Roberson looks good getting off of the bus but thats about it. Watauga should roll at home. Watauga 48 Roberson 20 McDowell @ RS Central The titans are starting over with a new coach and completely new offensive system. McDowell will be abandoning the spread and switch to the wing t running attack. I think it fits the mold better at McDowell and they can use their strengths better. It will likely take time for the titans to improve on the field, especially since they are replacing almost every skill player on offense from last season. The offensive and defensive line should be fine, but the secondary will be a problem against passing teams and teams with a lot of speed. Some players to watch for the Titans are Jr RB DeQuan Boyce and RB Quantavian Moore. RS Central has lost some players to transfer but has performed fairly well in scrimmages beating East Burke fairly easily. This game will help define each teams season and is always very important and usually close. With the game being at RS, I will take the hilltoppers. RS Central 29 McDowell 14
  11. Coach Mackey has an interesting choice in beard.. I think this could be a toss up with Hibriten rebuilding. Schmo has seemed concerned with AC too.

    Week 1: Shelby at Freedom

    I think this will be a heck of a ball game. Freedom has looked good early and has a great QB committed to a division 1 program and solid skill players. Shelby is Shelby and has looked great in the preseason scrimmages. I think it will be a lot closer than a lot think but favor Shelby by one or two scores.

    WHC Season Opener (Aug 23rd)

    I will do a little more in depth predictions later on but I'm thinking: Ashe by 13 Owen by 17 Carver by 7 Mitchell by 10 Heritage by 13 Polk by 21

    My schedule of games to see.

    If you ever come to McDowell let me know. I hope to be at a couple Heritage games this year too
