    Burns 49 Newton Conover 12

    Was worried at first. Max preps had the score backwards most of the night. Be careful...these Dawgs bite.

    Kings Mountain vs Shelby

    Great win by KM. Shelby has been able to jump on teams quick and KM flipped that script tonight. Got the lead and never looked back. KM front 7 on defense is really good.

    Freedom vs Crest

    Crest wins 51-48. Wild game. Crest found themselves down 10 a couple times late in the second half but kept battling. Shout out to Crest soph QB DJ Fuller.After A couple tough games vs Burns and Shelby he showed why he has such potential as a QB. Birchfield for Freedom is a dang man.

    Shelby vs Crest

    Borders was the best individual which allowed Wright to get more looks. You can't cheat off of Daley to help with Mitchell and then you have Huskey that is the x factor.

    Shelby vs Crest

    Congrats to Shelby on the big win. TO's and penalties vs a team as good as Shelby is a disaster and it turned into a horror movie on Friday the 13th. Shelby was able to hit that pass over the middle time and time again. As a group, this is the best group of WR's they have had. Shelby is rolling to another state title this. They don't have to play guys both ways and their athletes keep coming at you in droves. The only problem they have is if they beat themselves. Crest has some things they need to figure out on offense. They have talent out there, they just need to figure out the ways to use it. It was good to see Jalin Graham back and running hard for the Chargers. Crest played better than they did vs Burns but it was no where near enough. On to Freedom and hopefully the Chargers can continue to improve.
  8. Kick off at 7. If can't get game in tonight, will play tomorrow.

    Yes. Hoping to avoid storms.

    Shelby vs Crest

    Could be a long night. Gotta find a way to make Bess uncomfortable. If he has time to stand in the pocket then Mitchell and Daley will get some big plays. Need some long drives for the Crest offense to keep Shelby offense on the sidelines. Wish Graham was healthy so Crest could use Ruff in some different places. He's been at RB a good bit to fill in for Graham. Hopefully he's back soon but I bet it won't be this week as he tries to come back from a finger injury. Of course this is Crest/Shelby and I've seen so many crazy things happen in this game.

    Burns Bulldogs

    Burns looked outstanding Friday night. Sweezy has grown so much as a QB. Tough night for Crest. Missing starting RB, WR, OL goes out with an injury. Best DL goes out with an injury. Couple of other guys on O and D playing hurt. The biggest thing Crest needed this year was to stay healthy and it seems to have hit them harder than I can remember. Gotta play with cards you are handed and Burns was holding 4 aces Friday night. Congrats to the Bulldogs. Gonna give teams fits the rest of the way and the playoffs. I must miss these heated discussions at the Horseshoe Club meetings while I'm sitting there drinking my water. Must be another super secret meeting that is held.

    Week 1: South Point at Crest

    Very hard fought game. Good win for the Charger young pups and South Point will be a huge problem when they are healthy. Both teams were laying the wood on defense.

    Northwestern 3A/ 4A Predictions

    Really glad Crest and Freedom are getting back together. Really miss being in a conference with them. Always enjoyed the trips to Freedom in all sports.

    1st games matchups

    South Point at Crest...obvious reasons. Shelby at Freedom....Coach Wilbanks first game at the helm of the Golden Lions and Freedom can be a tough place to play. Burns at Kings Mountain...KM first game with a new man under center and this is a very underrated rilvary game.

    Culture change

    Young people (both male and female) seem to be developing at a much faster rate. My son is 6-3 290 pounds and isn't 15 yet. He lifts or runs with the football team everyday and goes to a speed and conditioning coach 2 times a week. I will say that the coaches and trainers talk to him about what he's putting in his body, such as his protein intake. Look at pro sports and how the players have changed. I think nutrition and training has come a long way. Now I will say to that there are kids that are putting on weight the wrong way, but again I think how they train and refuel has evolved too. I have also wondered myself about what has been put in our food over the years.
  19. I will toss 2015 Crest team into the mix. That team had it all.
  20. The match-up I would of loved to have seen 1996 3A Champs Hickory vs 1996 4A Champs Crest. That would of been a great game.

    Talk about a flawed system...

    Prelim baseball brackets are up and Crest got the 2 seed and Carson got the 1. Carson is a great team, but they have 2 defeats and one of them is a con game. Meanwhile Crest is undefeated. Something doesn't seem right in that equation.

    Talk about a flawed system...

    Latest max preps poll had Crest 4 and Marvin Ridge 6. Is that a third round match-up. Still have a right to complain about the system. North Gaston who finished second in the con has a better road. Series would be a much better way to decide You are correct about one hot pitcher can knock the better overall team out.
