  2. #1 Mallard Creek visits #1 Dutch Fork GAME TIME: This game is a 6:00 p.m. kickoff. This is obviously the biggest game, probably not just of the week, but of the season, and with the added hype of this being a nationally televised contest, and paired with the anticipation that lingers from these two powers not squaring off last year (due to weather), I think this has all the makings of being an instant classic, and hopefully it's a game that we talk about for years, and possibly decades to come. I think both of these programs have their best teams in recent memory coming back, and hopefully they'll both be at full power and healthy for Friday's matchup. COACHING MATCHUP: Tom Knotts is in his 10th season leading Dutch Fork and has a 407-76 record. Mike Palmieri is in his 13th season at Mallard Creek and owns a 129-33 record. LOCATION: The game is going to be played at Dutch Fork HS, this is a great stadium with ample seating to accommodate this crowd, but I still suggest getting there early because of parking.

  4. This is an outstanding week-one game between two Meck County powerhouses. I feel that Butler has flown a little under the radar this offseason and has stayed out of the limelight, especially in the transfer wire. Hough has a lot of talent but Butler is not an easy week-one draw for them.

  6. Watauga, Alexander Central and Freedom will be the top teams in the conference, but how will the rest of the conference finish this season?
  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

    West Rowan @ Mooresville

    This is the 50th Meeting This year for the Falcons/Blue Devils (Mooresville leads the ALL time Record 27-22) For West Rowan: They return a solid core of guys back from last yr. I think their biggest hurdle this year will be the QB spot bc IDK who their QB is but Hard to replace a 4 year starter in former QB in Stolsworth . West Rowan returns some of their top Defenders from a year ago, so Can they manage the Ground attack from Mooresville? I think West Rowan has to start the game out stopping Mooresville. Also West Rowan seems to NEVER be condition Ready for Week 1 and West Rowan has always been a Mid-Season/Late Season team when they get rolling. Can they Get back to their 10-11 game winning seasons n Start off by Beating Mooresville ? For Mooresville: Mooresville Returns only 7 Guys from last year. Also Mooresville will be running under Mr. Thad Wells offense of Schemes this season as seen in the Jamboree vs MP. Mooresville will have a lot of new faces in new place but Mooresville does have their Starting QB back along with some Rbs, WRs and One of best Defense players we have this year in Malik Birchett. Can Mooresville still put us point like they did a year ago? Will the Defense still be Strong? I think this game vs West Rowan will be a good measuring stick for our season as to see what we have up our Sleeve. Mooresville will more than likely will use a tempo style offense to help keep West Rowan off the field and Mooresville has to win the battles if they want to win vs a Good West Rowan team. **Note: I was VERY VERY Impressed by Mooresville D in the Jamboree. Very Aggressive, they got many pass break ups, and we got to the QB! I was very surprised and I think If Mooresville D plays like that EVERY game, Mooresville has a Chance! Mooresville O has get GEL and Get better but Mooresville O will be Fine** Prediction: I believe Mooresville will be the Favorite to win at Home and I believe that Margin is 10-14 Pts , I Think we will see a 28-14 , 35-21 type game. but Mooresville WIN here vs WR! Your Thoughts/Opinion?
  9. This is a very interesting opening week matchup taking place in Rockingham. Clayton enters this contest very talented, but they've also had a very tumultuous off-season, one that has seen the program come under scrutiny for recruiting and grade changing allegations, and has since seen principal Bennett Jones removed, and head football coach Hunter Jenks step down. Richmond, on the other hand has had a tremendous summer, and has looked very strong in 7-on-7's, and their preseason scrimmages, and the Raiders are anxious to improve upon last year's 11-2 record. Both of these programs have exceptional coaching staffs and are also both blessed with extremely high player participation numbers, and both have a great tradition of excellence over time. The Comets are led by Zay Peterson, a three-star safety that committed to Louisville, and transferred to Clayton from Hartsville (S.C.) after helping lead the Red Foxes to a 12-1 record last season. Jalen Chadwick, who had 926 all-purpose yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior at Cleveland HS is expected to be a focal point of the Comets offense. Chadwick is a 5-foot-9, 180-pound running back who has great feet, quickness, and strength to be an every-down back. The Raiders return Caleb Hood (Jr.) at quarterback, who already has over 4,000 career passing yards and 37 touchdowns to just 9 interceptions. In addition to a big arm, he's shown the ability to move the ball well with his feet, as he's accounted for 869 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. Jahiem Covington (Sr.) was last year's leading rusher for the Raiders with 1174 yards and 22 rushing touchdowns, and Jakolbe Baldwin (Jr.) and Dalton Stroman (Jr.) are the top returning receivers, and Kellan Hood (So.) has great potential for a breakout season. On defense, Derek Barringer (Sr.), D'Marcus Harrington (Sr.) and CJ Tillman (Jr.) will help anchor the unit that only gave up 12.85 points-per-game and recorded four defensive shutouts. On paper, this game has potential to be a very entertaining one for the fans, but the Clayton players will have to adapt to playing in front the hostile Richmond fans, as Raider Stadium is traditionally a very intimidating place for opposing teams. Both of these teams have the potential to make very deep runs in the postseason, so be certain to check this game out. COACHING MATCHUP: Bryan Till is entering his third season as the head coach at Richmond, and he's posted a 60-41 overall record.
  10. Pate Stadium should be rocking this Friday as Southeast Guilford (your 3AA runners-up from 2018) visit Scotland (your 4A runners-up from 2018). These are two outstanding teams, both with a lot of size and talent. If there wasn't so many outstanding games taking place this week, this contest would have been on my very short-list for attending. Being at home, one would think that Scotland would be the favorites, and having seen them last week against Dillon, I think they will be slight favorites, but don't for a moment think that the Falcons aren't on a mission to make it back to the state finals and leave their mark on Scots fans! COACHING MATCHUP: Richard Bailey is in his eight season at Scotland has posted a 205-59 record. He also has six state championship game appearances under his belt. Kennedy Tinsley is entering his third season at Southeast Guilford, and he's posted a 23-5 record, including making it to last year's 3AA finals.
  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?
  12. Any thoughts or predictions? I will say Dudley by 6
  13. 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
  14. This is one of the best games of the opening week with the defending 4A champions traveling west to take on perennial 3A contenders, A.C. Reynolds. I have not laid eyes on Reynolds yet, but having spoke with head coach Shane Laws, he still feels very confident about this team, although they're younger with some new key faces leading the way. I have seen East Forsyth and they still look the part of a state championship team. Any thoughts on this matchup? I think that A.C. Reynolds will keep it close, and being at home should help, but ultimately I see East pulling away late for a comfortable win. COACHING MATCHUP: Shane Laws: 12 years at Reynolds (124-38 record) Todd Willert: 16 years at East Forsyth (136-67 record)
  15. I haven't seen Davie yet this year, but I saw Page up close and personal on Friday, and have seen a few Page athletes over the spring/summer at some camps, so I have a pretty good gauge on the talent level of the Pirates. However, based on conversation with other coaches about the War Eagles, and knowing a bit about the talent they return, and the gritty level of play that Davie always brings, I think that Friday's season opener should be nothing short of fun and exciting to watch. I think both teams will show the ability to score, but I'm also sure that both will probably make some mistakes as well. In the CarolinaPreps.com Preseason Top-20 Power Rankings, I ranked Page at 11th, but having seen them, they probably wouldn't be ranked nearly that high if I could do it again. The Pirates are young in a lot of spots, and while very talented, they've got to grow up and show that they're the contenders we usually expect them to be. I'm not sure if Davie will be a 6 or 7-win kind of team this year, but this is what I expect on Friday. I have no doubt in my mind that Page will get Davie's best effort of the year, and I'm kind of leaning towards picking the War Eagles at home. History shows us that they'll show up strong for this game, and if they do come out and win it, it could really change the trajectory of this team and lead them towards a big year. The new Davie stadium is a great place to watch a game, so get there early and enjoy the action! PLAYERS TO WATCH: For Davie: QB Nate Hampton (Jr.) and RB/Slot Tate Carney (So.) For Page: Both QB's could be fun to watch, Javondre Paige (Sr.) will probably start, but Alonza Barnett (So.) may be too talented to sit on the bench all season. COACHING MATCHUP: Jared Rolfes is in his third season at Page and has a 40-22 record as a head coach. Tim Devericks is in his fourth season at Davie and has a 13-16 record as a head coach. SERIES RECORD (Davie leads 8-6) 2018: Page 35-28 (Page forfeits) 2017: Page 20-14 (OT) 2016: Davie 39-29 2015: Page 53-22 2014: Davie 45-40 2013: Page 32-22 2012: Davie 31-14 2011: Page 41-7 2010: Page 28-13 2009: Page 34-14 2008: Davie 50-49 2007: Davie 42-35 2003: Davie 34-14 (Playoffs) 2002: Davie 36-14 (Playoffs)
  16. Way too early for the 2 programs to be playing each other. Last couple of years MT Tabor has started the season off very slow. I will say Reagan by 8. Any thoughts or predictions.
  17. Iredell Co Predictions: Mooresville over West Rowan 28-14 Statesville over Hickory 35-13 Cutty over South Iredell 28-20 West Iredell over Atkins 21-14 Lake Norman over Cox Mill : 28-21 North Iredell over Wilkes Central 14-13 Pine Lake Prep over Quality Education Acd. 42-6
  18. 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.
  19. Apologize for getting this out there after everyone’s bed time...but the McDowell County Board of Education approves former Avery County coach Darrell Brewer as the new head coach at McDowell. https://www.mcdowellnews.com/news/school-board-confirms-new-titan-head-coach/article_7e262c6a-8bf3-11e9-b458-af7c0c12119e.html Expect a more detailed story on this hire later this week.
  20. 2019 4A Sandhills Athletic Conference pre-season predictions 1) Richmond Senior, 7-0 conference, 11-0 overall 2) Scotland, 6-1, 9-2 3) 71st, 5-2, 9-2 4) Pinecrest, 4-3, 8-3 5) Jack Britt, 3-4, 3-8 6T) Hoke County, 1-5, 4-7 6T) Lumberton, 1-5, 2-9 6T) Purnell Swett, 1-5, 1-10 Richmond Senior should repeat as conference champs, followed by Scotland and 71st. Look for Pinecrest and Jack Britt in the middle of the pack. Hoke County, Lumberton, and Purnell Swett battle it out to stay of the conference basement and could shock some folks.
  21. J.H Rose High School were picked to win the conference receiving four first-place votes. South Central High School received 3 first-place votes and were picked to finish second in the conference. D.H. Conley High School weren't far behind though receiving one less vote than South Central to sit in the third-place spot in the standings. New Bern High School under first-year head coach Torrey Nowell were picked to finish fourth in the conference. Charles B. Aycock High School were picked fifth with Eastern Wayne and Southern Wayne were picked sixth and seventh respectively. This is a bit different from what I have. I got DH Conley winning the conference. I think Conley QB Hamilton could be the most consistent QB of the top 3 teams he won't have the stud WR CJ Johnson he is showing out at Bagwell field at the moment. But I suspect the ball will be passed around by committee. Second I have South Central. SC has some question marks still in the secondary which I think Conley is the most capable of exposing this weakness. Third I got Rose. There is alot of hype around the younger Jarman taking over QB duties and he may be just fine. Got to prove it to me. Rose has some issues on both lines, LB is suspect, and a secondary that has one known baller, but all you got to do is not throw that way. Got New Bern at 4. These guys have a new proven winner at coach and alot excitement. Depth is an issue but I'm sure in Bear country its exciting to look ahead at what might become. They will grow alot this year. I got Eastern Wayne at 5th. I think alot of people are over looking their QB. If he can get some guys around him to up their game they could surprise some people. CB Aycock and Southern Wayne is a toss up. There you have it. I felt this was a bit of a surprise when I saw it. Would be interesting to know who voted what so we know how the coaches really feel. Lol.

  24. Will Raiders win it all or does Scots reclaim the title.
