    Congratulations Tanner Muse

    Great question. I read somewhere that he would most likely be moved to linebacker. We shall see. I just hope he can remain injury free. And I agree he will probably spend time on special teams, at least to start with.

    Hughes Is BACK!!

    Welcome back Mr Hughes! You weren't gone long but you were gone long enough to be missed. We are glad you are back at NC Preps. You didn't say and I'm not asking but I would assume the covid19 virus played into your decision to return. If that is indeed the case, I'm sorry things didn't work out for you. Anyway, welcome back. Take it from a sixty something. Always keep your options open. Always look for God's will in your life.

    Best fan base

    Stewy didn't help the situation at South Point but attendance had already fallen off before the new school opened.

    Best fan base

    From opening in 69 through the mid 80's South Point had great turnouts at home games. I would say SP fans from that time period also traveled better than most schools in the state. Belmont has changed tremendously since the 80's. Everything from Mills closing to becoming a bedroom community for Charlotte. There are now many more people in Belmont than years before but there are many adults who have no connection to the high school. In the old days nearly everyone in town went to South Point or old Belmont High School. Now days half to three quarters full is about all you see at SP.

    Top Playoff games you seen

    By halfway through the third quarter, I was pulling for W. Lincoln. South Point's lack of sportsmanship and discipline was so obviously and disappointing I could no longer pull for them that night. Had W. Lincoln found a way to beat Shelby the following week I would have been truly impressed.

    Top Playoff games you seen

    Last year. Kings Mountain at Charlotte Catholic. Seven to Seven at the end of regulation, followed by seven overtimes. I can't imagine a better game. I have no doubt that Kings Mountain would have gone on to win the State Title had they won that game. Catholic not only won the game but they played nearly flawless.
  8. Outside of Sylva and Maxton it don't look like they had to play anybody. 😁😁😁. I just messing with you, great teams make good teams look bad.

    Will COVID-19 affect schedule or season?

    Besides, do you think you could have walked into a bank with a mask on six months ago and asked for money without repercussions.😂😂😂

    Will COVID-19 affect schedule or season?

    A view from the other side, not necessarily my view but a view none the less. Health is extremely important as a matter of fact most important. Our government cannot continue to print money in order to prop up the economy. At some point people have to go back to work. I myself haven't worked since March 26th. A one time stimulus check is fine, its helpful but it won't pay the bills. I'm not suggesting everyone go back to life as normal. Normal has now changed, probably forever. Hugging friends, shaking hands and countless other things that were considered social norms probably won't be in the future. That being said, we have to find a way to restart the economic engine that has pushed this country to be the greatest in the world.

    High school football stadiums

    Thank you so much for saying so. That was of course, my intention. I'm not sure why but I do enjoy messing with you. I hope you don't take me seriously.

    Mr Chris Hughes, it appears that you have rubbed my friend Catholic the wrong way. For a coach for a team that wins often, wins big and wins championships he seems to get steamed when people question Catholic High School and now, when they don't get mentioned in a list. Some people you just can't please.🤣😂🤣😂

    Mascot name change

    That's because every community in the state doesn't go in for all that politically correct stuff.

    Mascot name change

    It appears that the majority of the changes mentioned above were done due to political correctness. I'm just an old white guy so I'm sure I have a different take than young folks. We all have a right to be offended. At the same time I think being offended is a choice. When people use my Lord's name in vane, I am offended. I don't get being offended by statues, flags or mascots. I've never been a black guy or a Native American, so I don't have that perspective I'm not saying I'm right and others are wrong. In just telling you how I see things.

    High school football stadiums

    High School Football is a religion in Texas. I don't know how big some of those schools are but I'd say way to big. The three or four largest schools in NC together probably couldn't fill the stadiums your talking about. I for one am glad. I would never want to see high schools in NC get that big or as political as I imagine it is down there. I've been to Clemson and I've been to Gardner-Webb and a lot of schools in-between size wise. For my money I would rather go watch the small schools play. Easier in and out, easier to concessions and restrooms. Of course I'm biased, I'm a GWU graduate.
