  1. Alexander Central at Hibriten This has the makings of being a very good opening week game. What are everyone's thoughts on the game and who do you think wins? COACH MATCHUP: Butch Carter is in his fourth season at Alexander Central and has a 130-89 coaching record. Sam Mackey is in his first year as head coach at Hibriten. SERIES RECORD: (Alexander Central leads 12-7) 2012: Hibriten 58-51 2011: Alexander Central 48-19 2010: Alexander Central 21-20 2009: Hibriten 48-7 2004: Hibriten 21-7 2000: Alexander Central 34-7 1999: Alexander Central 60-14 1984: Alexander Central 35-0 1983: Alexander Central 15-13 1982: Alexander Central 14-0 1981: Hibriten 19-7 1980: Alexander Central 20-0 1979: Hibriten 21-12 1978: Hibriten 21-13 1977: Hibriten 28-7 1976: Alexander Central 14-0 1975: Alexander Central 48-12 1974: Alexander Central 41-6 1973: Alexander Central 19-6

    South Fork 2A

    What is the outlook for these teams this year? Bandys, North Lincoln and West Lincoln came out of nowhere last year. Maiden and East Lincoln are always solid. Newton-Conover and Lincolnton are on the rise. And I believe Lake Norman Charter has a new coach now, will they be any better? What are the conference predictions?
  3. If the last two years are any indicator, fans will be in for a treat this Friday in Elizabeth City as D.H. Conley travels up Highway 17 to take on Northeastern. It's my opinion that Northeastern is the best 2A team in Eastern NC this season, and Conley is always among the top 3A teams from the East, so this should be a good ol' fashion donnybrook. Previous Contests: 2018: Northeastern won 42-34 2017: Northeastern won 55-49 in OT COACHING MATCHUP: Antonio Moore is in his 15th season leading the Eagles, he has a 152-40 record. Nate Conner is entering his fifth season at Conley and has posted a 39-13 record.
  4. This is always a great rivalry game to start the season off with. What is everyone's thoughts on this matchup? I think South Point may be slightly favored in my opinion (but not by much), and is this a must-win game for the Chargers? You know that the Crest team, staff, and fans expect to be state championship contenders every season and they all want more than a 9-4 record. COACHING MATCHUP: Adam Hodge is in his third season at South Point and has a 21-5 record. Nick Eddins is in his third season at Crest and has a 88-24 record. SERIES RECORD: (South Point leads 23-14) 2018: Crest 28-11 2017: South Point 22-14 2016: South Point 27-12 2015: Crest 31-13 2014: Crest 35-13 and Crest 13-7 2013: South Point 35-16 2012: South Point 42-24 and South Point 46-33 2011: South Point 42-21 2010: South Point 29-27 2009: South Point 42-21 2008: South Point 35-28 2007: South Point 21-14 2006: Crest 54-20 2005: South Point 21-20 (forfeit) 2004: Crest 35-21 2003: South Point 35-7 2002: Crest 28-7 2001: Crest 42-12 1984: South Point 33-0 1983: Crest 21-6 1982: Crest 41-14 1981: Crest 17-14 1980: Crest 14-0 1979: South Point 18-0 1978: Crest 12-0 1977: South Point 35-0 1976: South Point 23-7 1975: Crest 13-8 1974: South Point 48-7 1973: South Point 33-13 and South Point 20-7 1972: South Point 15-13 1971: South Point 29-22 1970: South Point 13-8 1969: South Point 34-2
  5. This cross-town rivalry is about to heat up again as South Rowan travels to Carson for the season opener. Carson leads the series 8 games to 4 but the Cougars will have a new head coach this year (former South Rowan alum Daniel Crosby, who comes over after coaching in recent years at Central Cabarrus and Cox Mill.) I anticipate South Rowan to be a much improved team this year, but they could still be a year away from being really strong again. While I think Carson may still be a little more talented, I wouldn't be at all surprised if South was very competitive and finds a way to be in it. COACHING MATCHUP: Daniel Yow is in his fifth season leading the Raiders. (8-36) This is Daniel Crosby's first year as a head coach. SERIES RECORD: 2007: South Rowan 35-7 2008: South Rowan 15-6 2009: South Rowan 46-21 2010: Carson 53-16 2011: Carson 42-27 2012: Carson 31-25 2013: Carson 48-6 2014: Carson 36-13 2015: Carson 51-10 2016: South Rowan 19-16 2017: Carson 18-15 2018: Carson 35-7

    Obviously Hibriten is the favorite in the conference again, but where do the rest of the teams in the conference stand? It seems like the rest of the conference could be wide open
  7. Well it's that time again. Football is finally here so lets get started with some conference picks. Smoky Mountain Conference 1A The SMC title is Murphy's lose. Everyone else is playing for second. I really think the SMC will be far more competitive than the last several years, and about time. 1) Murphy 2) Swain 3) Robbinsville 4) Andrews 5) Hayesville 6) Cherokee 7) Rosman Western Highlands Conference 1A/2A The prohibitive favorite is Mountain Heritage, but, they better ready for Mitchell this year. Owen and Polk can be dark horses this year if teams stumble. 1) Heritage 2) Mitchell 3) Polk 4) Owen 5) Avery 6) Madison Mountain Six 2A The MTN6 will be a slugfest this year. Smoky is making things interesting for the regular contenders, Pisgah and Franklin. Hendo will be good as will Brevard. 1) Pisgah 2) Smokey 3) Hendersonville 4) Brevard 5) Franklin 6) East Henderson The Western Mountain Conference 3A Reynolds should win the WMC this season, but Asheville better not be overlooked. West or Tuscola could slip in as high as second. 1) ACR 2) Asheville) 3) West Henderson 4) Erwin 5) Tuscola 6) TC Roberson 7)Enka 8) North Henderson 9) North Buncombe
  8. Owen will be without 4 starters on both sides of the ball and East is at home with something to prove but so does Owen. Sleep on Owen if you want and pick them 4th in the WHC. No worries, they will wake you up. Owen 35 East Henderson 7
  9. Went to an event tonight in Montgomery County where they introduced the Montgomery Central football team. I counted 40 players (varsity only)they were missing 3 players. Looks like they have good size and a bunch of athletes. Can not wait for season to start!

  11. There are some changes to the play clock starting this season... The play clock has been expanded to 40 secs in high school from what I received in an email from our AD. The 40 sec clock begins once the previous play ends instead of the old format in which you had to wait for the ref’s whistle. In the case of a timeout, you revert back to the 25 sec play clock after the timeout is over. I’m sure for clock operators like myself it will take a little time to adjust to the new rules. Wonder how it will affect the action on the field?

    WHC Season Opener (Aug 23rd)

    Welp, it's been 8 long months, but its finally football time again in the high country. The 2019 season should see the conference still top-heavy, but also stronger top to bottom. So without further ado, let's dive in. Ashe @ Avery The Vikings enter the 2019 season with nothing to lose. Coming off a 2-9 season under first year coach Mac Bryant, the Vikes look to improve. Returning 10 starters, with decent skill, Bryant should have his system moving in the right direction. Look for Avery to be a pass first team, and if the smallish line can give Hoilman enough time to pass, he can do such with great accuracy. They open up against Ashe, who is coming off a 10-3 season, an MVC title, and a 2nd round appearance. Ashe returns alot of skill, but the line is on the small side, and fairly green. Nonetheless, look for Ashe to take control by halftime. Ashe-35 Avery-14 East Henderson @ Owen Owen won more games last season than the previous 3 combined. The Warhorses are hungry, and after a taste of the playoffs, they want some more. With a fair amount returning, a good sized, and experienced line, and decent skill, anything less than >.500 will be a disappointment. Owen opens up against East Henderson, who are coming off a good rebuilding year themselves. This should be a good matchup, and test for both teams, but home field should be the deciding factor. Owen-27 East-21 Madison @ Carver Madison is, is, *sigh*, Madison. They have no depth, no size, and no skill. I hate to be so demoralizing, but there's no motivation in Marshall, and the whole stadium issue seems to have defeated them already. On the plus side, the once proud and dominant Carver is coming off their worst season in recent memory, and things don't look any better for 2019. Expect a pretty even matchup, with a nod to the home team. Madison will be defending their basement fort again this year. Carver-14 Madison-12 Mitchell @ Erwin Mitchell went home a little too early last year, and those 16 returning starters still have a bad taste in their mouths. The Mountaineers bring tons of skill, a fast and large line, the best special teams in conference, and the 2018 WHC athlete of the year. Look out everyone. Erwin, meanwhile, is coming off a dandy season of their own, but graduation and transfers have not been kind to the Warriors. Still, this is a small 1a team playing at a 3aa team. Expect a fairly close game, with the Mountaineers pulling away late. Mitchell-35 Erwin-20 Brevard @ Mountain Heritage Heritage is still engineering the WHC train, winning their 4th straight conference title last year. With good team speed, a strong run game, and the returning lineman of the year, the Coogs are poised to have another dandy season. They open up with Brevard, who last year, lost to heritage on opening night, but went one round deeper, going toe to toe with Reidsville before falling just short. Heritage returns more than Brevard, but both should be strong again this year. Heritage's returning talent should out muscle Brevards up and comers. Mountain Heritage-30 Brevard-21 Cherokee @ Polk Bruce Ollis and Co. made a surprise run to the 3rd round of the playoffs last year, and the players want to go back. Polk returns more than anyone else in the conference, 17, and have picked up some key transfers in the off season. With a 200 win coach, and some pretty good skill, Polk could be a dark horse to sneak into second place or even force a tie on top. Line size is a little small, so that could be a factor late in a close game down the line. Opening up with Cherokee, the Braves have a new coach, and honestly, not much else to mention. Look for Polk to strike early and often, giving the 2nd string some valuable playing time in the 4th quarter. Polk-42 Cherokee-7
  13. This should be an excellent game in Southeastern NC on Friday, as these are two very solid programs, both with great athletes, and great coaching staffs. You'd have to go back to before 2000 to find a season in which East Bladen didn't win at least 7 games, and since the turn of the century, they've won 10+ games eleven times. Wallace-Rose Hill is coming off a 9-4 season, and likewise, they've been thoroughly dominant for a long time, and have only had one real down season (2008) since the early 1980's. I caught the tail-end of East's thorough whipping of Purnell Swett in the BSN Jamboree in Lumberton last week. The Eagles were very solid, very athletic, and looked the part of a top level 2A team. The Bulldogs have an incredible backfield with two studs returning that can take it to the house at any time. I really like Cameren Dalrymple (Jr.) who's got great breakaway (track speed) and can score from anywhere on the field, including kick returns. Kanye Roberts (So.) is a rising superstar in NC who also has great speed and quickness. East senior Lawson Hester is very athletic and may have the mobility to try and slow down the Bulldogs running attack, but he'll also be counted on to rack up some yards for the Eagles on offense too. COACHING MATCHUP: Kevin Motsinger is in his third season at Wallace-Rose Hill, and has a 120-62 coaching record. Robby Priest is in his eighth season at East Bladen, and he has a 66-26 record.
  14. Richlands is coming off of a very solid 7-5 season from a year ago, and the Wildcats are expecting an even better showing in 2019. On the other side, East Duplin has become regular contender in the 2A classification and they're always a threat to make a deep playoff run. Last season, the Panthers routed Richlands 63-12 in the season-opener, but a more experienced Wildcats team may be up for the challenge in 2019. East head coach Battle Holley graduated four of his top five rushers from a season ago, with Keyon McClarin (Jr.) being the top returner this season. In limited carries, he rushed for 345 yards and reached the end zone 3 times. A key returner on the defensive side of the football will be the hard-hitting Russell Gaby (Jr.), who recorded 93 tackles as a sophomore. While Richland's wasn't a passing team, they do return quarterback Caleb Blankenship (Sr.) who rushed for 599 yards. COACHING MATCHUP: Gene Boley is in his fourth season at Richlands and has posted a 17-18 record. Battle Holley is in his ninth season leading East Duplin, and owns a 103-41 coaching record.
  15. Cape Fear looked very strong this week against Scotland in the BSN Jamboree in Fayetteville (although Scotland didn't play many starters), but they'll have their hands full (and then some) as they travel down Highway 24 to Clinton. I firmly feel that Clinton is a 2A contender and they showed it in how well they handled Terry Sanford this past week in a scrimmage. This is one of the best Southeastern NC games in the state this week and will tell us a lot about both teams. I know that Cape Fear is strong, they've got one of the best young coaches in Jacob Thomas leading them, but I'm not sure yet if they're a Top-30 kind of 3A team or not yet. Same could be said for Clinton, while in 2A ball, they are immensely talented, are they a bonafide Top-5 kind of team yet? I think a convincing win over Cape Fear would solidify that. COACHING MATCHUP: Jacob Thomas is in his 7th year at Cape Fear and has a 56-24 record. Cory Johnson is in his second year at Clinton and has an 8-3 record. LAST TWO CONTESTS: 2018: Cape Fear won 15-0 2017: Cape Fear won 13-7
  16. Can the Patriots and Dynamic QB Birchfield pull this one out? From everything I heard about the Golden Lions they are Loaded!!! And this might be a understatement. Jahari Mitchell May be the best overall player on the field. Crazy things seems to happen in that Morganton mist when Shelby rolls into town. Freedom secondary will be tested early and often. Depth may be Freedoms down fall late. Shelby’s D is legit. In the Jamboree they sniffed lincolnton. Too many fire works for the Golden Lions. Prediction shelby 42-21
  17. I figured I get this one started being that the season is less than 2 months away, I haven’t heard anything new but I’m going to guess how each team finishes based on their schedules 1. Heritage 9-1, 5-0: Honestly with Heritages non conference schedule it’s hard to pick out a garunteed win, but with what we return and knowing how hard these kids play I say we go 4-1 against non conference opponents, I say we slip up somewhere maybe Erwin or @ Pisgah but win the rest, in conference play I really don’t see anyone challenging us except Mitchell and luckily we’ve got them at home, we’re going for 5 straight in case you Mitchell fans have lost count 2. Mitchell 9-2, 4-1: Their non conference we’ll be a bit easier they’ve got 4 games that they should win by at least 3 or 4 scores but they do have two really tough games @Franklin and @ Erwin I say they lose one of those two, in conference they’re in the same boat as Heritage the winner of the Mitchell-Heritage game will win conference. 3. Owen 5-5, 3-2: Really only two games I see them winning in their non conference schedule and I’m giving them both East and North Henderson, in conference I say they beat Polk in a close one and beat Avery and Madison by 3 or more scores then Heritage and Mitchell beats them beating by 3 or more, they’ll be improved even if it’s a slight improvement. 4. Polk 5-6, 2-3: I think Polk could potentially win their first 4 games @Cherokee, @ North Gaston, RS Central, East Henderson, but I say they slip up in at least one of those, I really don’t think they have enough fire power to compete with Hendo or East Rutherford either, in conference I think they are in the same boat as Owen, win by 3 scores or more against Avery and Madison and lose by 3 or more scores to Mitchell and Heritage, and in their game with Owen I give Owen the slight edge since it’s at Owen, so not much better this year but who know maybe they’ve got another deep playoff run in them. 5. Madison 2-9, 1-4: Really these last two are just guesses, the only game I see Madison winning for sure is against Rosman, Chase could potentially be a close one, but I’ve got them beating Avery at home to avoid finishing last 6. Avery 2-9, 0-5: From what I’m hearing Avery could be improved this year but by how much I’m not sure, I think their games with Ashe and Cloudland will be a bit closer this year which would be an improvement and I think NB will beat them by 2-3 scores, they’ve got 3 winable games against West Wilkes, North Wilkes and @ Draughn, I think they win 2 of the 3, and then I think they lose to Madison making the third time in 3 years they finish with only 2 wins and the 4th time in the last 5 seasons that they’ve finished last in the WHC.
  18. Was anyone able to make it to the scrimmage today?
  19. Regardless of classification who are the top RBs to watch for in the State. Do we have any approaching the 6,000 + mark or more.
  20. Does anyone have any info on this I know it's starting at 6 and it's a NC VS VA clash but will they be playing full field and will they be keeping track of scores type of games? Or 2 played on half field and who are the matchups

  23. Not 100% on who’s who in this conference but from everything I’m hearing Pisgah and Smoky mnt. should be the favorites everyone else loses a lot to graduation I say it goes 1.Pisgah 2. Smoky 3. Hendersonville 4. Franklin 5. Brevard 6. East Henderson
  24. Polk county has gotten 4 kids from Rs Central and one from East Rutherford these are some of Rs central’s best players and the kid from East Rutherford is a freshman lineman who is massive so this should really help the Wolverines out. Word on the street is Rs central is falling apart due to the head coach over there.
