    SW Guilford vs Cox Mill

    Young man has been transported back to a local hospital in the Triad, but family and professionals have asked for no visitors to allow for continued healing. Prayers for this young man. SWG has a tremendous ball club but have had their fair share of trials with the young man who died in the car crash in 2017 and now this. Resilient bunch and very talented.

    Young man is out of the medically induced coma, but still sedated heavily to allow for continued healing. He has movement in his limbs and strength is returning. Continued prayers for a full recovery for this young man.

    SW Guilford vs Cox Mill

    Update: the young man is still in stable but critical condition. He has been in a medically induced coma for a bit now to sedate him so that the brain swelling and internal bleeding may subside. All signs are that he should continue to progress and hopefully move to a full recovery. I’d expect him to be in the hospital another 2-3 days before being able to be transported back home to a local hospital for continued care and evaluation. Prayers for the big fella and his family.

    TW Andrews head coaching opening

    hopefully they got somebody committed to the program. the first year will certainly be a challenge in getting things on track and installing a system and expectations, but if you can get the kids to buy in, this one could be a gig that bears fruit pretty quickly, especially in 2A, and maybe even 1A the way their enrollment is going

    Lincolnton searching for a new head coach

    Went to some trouble to link myself with a mutual friend in catawba county? Put me in the camp of confused. Don’t have any friends in Catawba County both on this board or off it. I’m from Guilford County and simply saw the posting about the Eastern Guilford coach moving back to Lincolnton on GreensboroSports, at which time I finally clicked on the last page of this thread. To be candid, I didn’t read any posts on the pages prior to the end of this thread, simply commented when I saw the assertion that the GreensboroSports guy was out to get somebody which certainly wasn’t and isn’t the case.

    similar situations. Carvers is a little more unique in that Forsyth county has open enrollment so the county always has the excuse that kids and families can attend neighborhood schools or make the choice to go elsewhere with their own transportation. The Andrews situation is truly a redistricting issue. I’ll save you the details because it was already highlighted in a thread on here last year but new lines literally send kids past Andrews and even central in some cases and put them at Southwest Guilford. Kid can live 2 miles from Andrews and 5 miles from central and yet is in Southwest Guilford district 8 miles away just as an example. It is no coincidence that Southwest Guilford is now good in football and basketball with a good amount of players that traditionally would have attended Andrews and even central to a smaller degree. Hell there’s many kids whose parents were big time players at Andrews years ago, live in the same community they group up in and their kids now attend SWG or HPC.

    Again, we are generally in agreeance in that it could have been handled better in an ideal world but as I said, and as I’ll say again, it’s not the media world we live in. I don’t know the Andy guy but based on what I’ve seen on his site, I don’t think it was malicious, but more of an attempt to publish something relevant since it pertained to Eastern Guilford who has been a good program lately in the county. I’m an old timer and grew up around high school football so I have tremendous respect for the historically good programs across the state including the successes that Lincolnton has had. That being said, I’d love to know where the “insults” you speak of came from because although my eyes aren’t 20-20, I’m pretty damn sure I don’t see one I posted in this thread. You mentioned it twice in your post. Again, just because I may not agree with your overall assessment of the intent or overall importance, I see your point specific to how it was released but never insulted you or any party involved.

    You are spot on. It’s modern day segregation. They have stripped Andrews of its socio economic balance and it is literally eroding the school.

    Im not disagreeing with you. I’m simply saying it is what it is, but don’t think it was meant in a malicious manner. And in the grand scheme of things, life goes on regardless of who the coach is at XYZ high school.

    So they should have waited a week until another outlet (The Times) reported it? Yeahhhhh that’s NOT how the media works whether we like it or not.

    No dog in the fight but don’t trash the Greensboro Sports guy for breaking a story about a high school football coaching change. I understand the perfect scenario where he resigns, makes his own announcement and then his new school makes an announcement of the new hire. Trust me. I get it. But In the grand scheme of things, it’s really not that big of a deal. It doesn’t make it any less credible coming from Greensboro sports because it’s true. I don’t know the guy there personally but do know that he does a tremendous job of providing exposure to middle school and high school athletics in the triad area. Respectfully, none of these high school sports sites we frequent are some large, syndicated operation with full time staffs and terribly large budgets. I think they are all doing a fine job of supporting high school sports and don’t think there was anything malicious here.

    all of above but it’s largely a district thing. They’ve got “school choice” with magnet programs in high point and it allows for pretty sudden movement and shift of students. Andrews is tracking towards 1A at its current pace. It won’t be next realignment but definitely the next if something doesn’t change. You still have some elite level athletes over there but with numbers so low, it’s not the numbers and depth that they once had when they won the state title in 13 or was a 1 seed in 15. Really quite sad they can’t find stability the last 5 years. If the right coach comes in and is willing to put time and effort and get over that hump the first few years, that job could be a goldmine literally.
