  2. Its that time of the year again so let the playoffs begin. Only a couple of rematches in the first round as Smoky travels to The Pit to face Franklin after playing them last week and Rosman travels to Big Oaks for another go at Robbinsville. Despite all the controversy of the Maxpreps rankings we are left with a half way decent playoff bracket. let's make the best of it and hope for a significant overhaul next season. 1A #12 Rosman @ #5 Robbinsville: Robbinsville 31-20 #11 Hayesville @ #6 Elkin: Elkin 46-14 1AA #12 Cherryville @ #5 Swain County: Swain 31-20 #11 South Stanly @ #5 Murphy: Murphy 40-24 9 North Rowan @ #8 Polk County: Polk 24-22 2A #15 Lexington Senior @ #2 Mountain Heritage: Heritage 35-14 #14 Brevard @ #3 Hendersonville: Hendersonville 38-10 2AA #14 Smoky Mountain @ #3 Franklin: Franklin 42-14 #11 Pisgah @ #6 Wilkes Central: Pisgah 30-28 3A #14 Tuscola @ #3 JM Robinson: Robinson 28-7 3AA #15 Parkland @ #2 AC Reynolds: ACR 40-10 #11 Erwin @ #6 AL Brown: Brown 31-24 #9 Asheville @ #8 Watauga: Watauga 34-22
  3. East Wilkes is coming off a heartbreaking shock loss to Elkin last week and after Wilkes Central rolled Starmount the Eagles are in the drivers seat because either way they are MVAC champs. Win for WC and they are outright champs for a 2nd straight year but a EW win and the MVAC will have co champs. It will be a battle but im going to lean EW because they need a bounce back win with a possible top 4 playoff seed ahead. EW 34-28 But I can see Central taking this one just as easy as I see EW winning. It should be a great game with a great crowd!
  4. Sorry for be so late but it's busy around Jackson County this time of year. Nothing much changed this week at the top. Murphy fell after losing to a motivated Swain team and Cherokee jumped into the four slot after beating Robbinsville. Erwin moves up to ninth and Tuscola re-enters the top 10. Smoky Mountain moves up as they continue their extremely confusing season. They score a bunch with no defense one week then play great defense and score less. They are hard to pick. West continues to fall and Owen picks up win number one this season after several close games. Let's hope the Warhorses are on the road to more wins as that only strengthens mountain football. 1 Mountain Heritage, 8-0, 3-0 2 Franklin, 9-0, 3-0 3 A.C. Reynolds, 8-1, 6-0 4 Cherokee, 9-0, 4-0 5 Mitchell, 8-1, 2-1 6 Hendersonville, 6-3, 2-1 7 Murphy, 7-2, 3-1 8 Asheville, 5-4, 5-1 9 Erwin, 4-4, 4-2 10 Tuscola, 6-3, 4-2 11 Swain 5-4, 4-1 12 Pisgah, 5-4, 1-2 13 Robbinsville, 6-3, 2-2 14 Brevard, 6-3, 1-2 15 TC Roberson, 3-6, 3-3 16 Polk, 6-3, 2-1 17 Smoky Mountain, 4-5, 1-2 18 West Henderson, 6-3, 4-2 19 East Henderson, 3-6, 1-2 20 Madison, 3-6, 1-2 21 Owen, 1-7, 1-2 22 Rosman, 2-7, 1-3 23 North Henderson, 2-7, 0-6 24 Hayesville, 2-7, 1-3 25 Enka, 2-8, 1-6 26 Avery, 2-7, 0-3 27 Andrews, 1-9, 0-5 28 North Buncombe, 1-9, 1-6
  5. This game last year shocked alot because of how close it was. It was an outstanding effort by the Trojans as a failed 2pt conversion with around 6 seconds left made the final score 35-34 WC. Wilkes Central is really good again this year and Alleghany has some good ball players. I seen Alleghany a couple weeks ago and like how they mix things up more than traditional trojan teams I have seen. I expect Alleghany to play keep away much like a year ago to try and keep the high octane eagle O off the field. KW if you read this I know you know AHS better than anyone I wanna here your thoughts for sure! My prediction is 44-24 WC
  6. Heritage holds on to the top spot in this week's rankings after a big win over rival neighbor, Mitchell. The Toe River War went to the Cougars for the third straight year. Franklin jumps the idle Rockets after going to Hendersonville and beating a very talented Bearcats team. Franklin gets Brevard this week and Pisgah the week after next to decide the Mountain 6 title. With four teams in the top 12 both the Mountain 6 and Western Mountain are solidly in the driver's seat as the top conferences in WNC. The Game of the Week is what could be the WMAC title game, AC Reynolds hosting Asheville. the Cougars are hot and will find out how good they are Friday at Dalton stadium. 1 Mountain Heritage, 6-0, 1-0 2 Franklin, 7-0, 1-0 3 A.C. Reynolds, 6-1, 4-0 4 Murphy, 6-1, 2-0 5 Cherokee, 7-0, 2-0 6 Asheville, 5-3, 5-0 7 Brevard, 6-1, 1-0 8 Mitchell, 6-1, 0-1 9 Hendersonville, 4-3, 0-1 10 West Henderson, 5-2, 3-1 11 Pisgah, 5-2, 1-0 12 Erwin, 3-4, 3-2 13 Robbinsville, 5-2, 2-1 14 Polk, 5-2, 1-0 15 Tuscola, 4-3, 2-2 16 Swain 3-4, 2-1 17 Smoky Mountain, 3-4, 0-1 18 North Henderson, 2-5, 0-4 19 Madison, 3-4, 1-0 20 TC Roberson, 1-6, 1-3 21 Rosman, 2-6, 1-2 22 East Henderson, 2-5, 0-1 21 Enka, 2-6, 1-4 22 Avery, 2-5, 0-1 23 Andrews, 1-7, 0-3 24 Owen, 0-6, 0-1 25 Hayesville, 1-6, 0-2 26 North Buncombe, 1-7, 1-4
  7. Heritage holds on to the top spot while taking a much needed break after Hendersonville. Reynolds closed the gap after thumping Tuscola. Franklin had a nice tune up before opening Mountain 6 play against preseason Favorite Hendersonville. Cherokee showed it can compete and Asheville continues to move up as they stay perfect in WMAC play. Smoky Mountain moved up but must play during a very tough three game stretch to secure a playoff berth. Polk, Swain and TCR all need to right the ship to have successful seasons. 1 Mountain Heritage, 5-0 2 A.C. Reynolds, 6-1, 4-0 3 Franklin, 6-0 4 Murphy, 6-1, 1-0 5 Cherokee, 6-0, 1-0 6 Mitchell, 6-0 7 Hendersonville, 4-2 8 Asheville, 4-3, 4-0 9 Brevard, 5-1 10 West Henderson, 4-2, 2-1 11 Pisgah, 4-2 12 Tuscola, 4-2, 2-1 13 North Henderson, 2-4, 0-3 13 Robbinsville, 4-2, 1-1 15 Erwin, 2-4, 2-2 16 Polk, 4-2 17 Smoky Mountain, 3-3 18 Swain 2-4, 1-1 19 East Henderson, 2-4 20 TC Roberson, 1-5, 1-2 21 Madison, 2-4 22 Rosman, 2-5, 1-1 21 Enka, 2-5, 1-3 22 Avery, 2-4 23 Andrews, 1-6, 0-2 24 Owen, 0-5 25 Hayesville, 1-5, 0-1 26 North Buncombe, 0-7, 0-4

  11. Got a battle of 2 4-0 teams in East Wilkes and North Wilkes Who you got? I say EW 38-14 I think EW just has to much.
  12. WNC Game of the Week (2A) Mountain Heritage Cougars -@- Hendersonville Bearcats (2A) Dietz Field Hendersonville, NC Hendersonville leads 25-4, 30th meeting Heritage 38 Hendersonville 34 This annual showdown has been for the Western Highlands Conference title for the last four years and the only thing missing this season is the conference. After the NCHSAA realigned the conferences in Western North Carolina they moved Hendersonville into the Mountain 6 leaving Heritage alone in the WHC. This game has been lopsided in the last 29 meetings and normally this would indicate a nonchalant perception of each other. These two teams are far from nonchalant. The teams have split the last four games and Heritage won in 2010 and 1985 prior. Heritage enters the game ranked in the top three in several polls, including yours truly, gobiggreen.net top 20 and Maxpreps.com top 20. Hendersonville enters with a huge win over Burns and is highly regarded by pollsters and fans alike. Heritage is a definite threat to advance deep into the 2A playoffs and could be a darkhorse to play in the title game this fall. The Cougars have a nasty running game with multiple backs that can grind out yards or break huge gains on any snap. The offensive line is big and technically sound and best of all they are mean and love being physical. The passing attack is good, not spectacular but very solid. The receivers know how to run routes and how to get open and pick up yards. If all that is not enough to keep defenses off balance you can add in the QB. Trey Robinson may be the best technically sound QB in the mountains and certainly has one of the strongest arms. When he’s not throwing lasers he is skillfully leading the offense. Oh by the way, he is one of the better running QBs in the west and can take a team on his back at any time. The Cougar defense is absolutely nasty, with maybe the best run defense of anyone in WNC. They can be a touch shaky on pass defense but recover very well. Special teams are good, with a good punter and a kicker that can do what he needs to do. Hendersonville is electric, you know and I know it. With perhaps the best passing attack in the mountains and as much or more speed than anyone they can bust a scoreboard. The Bearcats feature one of the top players in 2A, Tyrek Landrum. Landrum can score in so many ways and you can bet he will see the ball as many times as he can get it. Deep at QB the Bearcats can count on no silly mistakes from that position. The running game is less dynamic that last season but seems to have a different personality. They have the size this year to grind out yards when they need to. Upfront they are a year away from being really special but are still playing quite well. The defense showed it can step up against a very athletic team last week and this bodes well for tonight’s game. After getting gashed by Charlotte Christian and exposed by West early in the year the teams has steadied the ship. The run defense is weaker than the pass defense but both are improving noticeably each week. This is another game that could be a shootout but I see a game in the 30’s with each team taking turns throwing hay-makers. I don’t foresee a huge knockout just a slug fest between two of the better teams in WNC. Each team has a nice mix of speed and skill players and physical hitters so it should be a pretty even game. Penalties and turnovers will determine this game. Will the older more experience Cougars prevail, yes, just barely.
  13. WNC Game of the Week (3A) Asheville Cougars -@- Erwin Warriors (3A) Warrior Stadium Leicester, NC 44th meeting, Asheville leads 35-8-1 Asheville 28 Erwin 26 Who would have thought that these two teams would only have one win between them at this point in the season? Normally we’re talking about which one get the first loss of the season while hyping the other. Asheville enters the game with all the momentum after sneaking out a one-point win over favored TC Roberson Friday night. The Cougars have shown the ability to score on good defenses this season so point production shouldn’t be a problem. The Cougar skill players can match up with just about everyone in WNC but can they stay disciplined enough to continue winning? Asheville has thrown the ball well and can run enough to keep teams off balance. Erwin seems to have found its stride after losses to 1A and 2A teams early. The Warriors had ACR concerned for most of their game but fell short in the end. This is another team that has the ability to score points almost at will, just as soon as they find their rhythm. Defensively the Warriors have struggled stopping teams with a strong running game. When you struggle to stop the run it’s easy to give up passing yards as a result. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Erwin doesn’t have explosive players on both sides of the ball, because they do. This could easily be a 56-52 type of a shootout but I think it turns into a more defensive minded affair. The speed and skill players from both teams should counter each other causing the game to come down to coaching and field position. If this game gets played after all the weather issues it should be a good one. These Buncombe County rivals, both eager to knock ACR from the top spot in the Western Mountain Athletic Conference, should be ready to play. This game really could be for second place overall in the WMAC if both teams continue to improve.
  14. Looking forward to these old rivals suiting up against one another! AC looks good this year as I have heard good things about this team. WC will be ready as this is a big game for the Eagles. Who ya got?!
  15. East Wilkes and East Surry to me is one of the best 1A games in Western NC for week 1. Wanna see your predictions!
  16. Wanting to get some information on R-S Central before their matchup with Wilkes Central Friday Night. I know they play in really stout conference and play pretty good competition all year, But i'm wanting to find out some Key players and things they do that could give WC Trouble?
  17. The Mountain Valley 1A/2A Conference Championship game is this week! East Wilkes Vs Wilkes Central. The Scenarios are as Follows East Wilkes Wins Outright Championship this week if- (They beat Central and North Wilkes beats West Wilkes) Wilkes Central Wins Outright Championship if- (They Beat East Wilkes and West Beats North) A 3 Team Tie Emerges if- ( East Wilkes Wins and West Wilkes Wins) North Wilkes can be apart of a 3 Team Tie if- (They beat West this week and Central loses to East and then North beats Central next week) East Wilkes and West Wilkes play next week so that game would dictate a 3 way tie or an outright Champion on November the 4th. Let me hear your Predictions! My Prediction: East and West win this week and then East edges out West next week for an outright MVAC title.
  18. North Buncombe at Enka, 7 p.m. (WMYA-TV): Enka 17-15 Sept. 23 MAC Erwin at Reynolds: ACR 34-32 Roberson at McDowell: TCR 35-17 WNCAC Pisgah at East Henderson: Pisgah 35-3 Tuscola at Smoky Mountain: Tuscola 28-17 North Henderson at West Henderson: North 27-14 Brevard at Franklin: Franklin 31-27 WHC Avery County at Owen: Avery 21-14 Polk County at Madison: Madison 21-14 Hendersonville at Mountain Heritage: Heritage 38-31 SMC Cherokee at Murphy: Murphy 34-20 Robbinsville at Andrews: Robbinsville 31-14 Rosman at Hayesville: Rosman 24-10 Nonconference Winston-Salem Carver at Asheville: Carver 28-21 Last weeks everyone was pretty close in picking the games. Good job guys. Vikingnation, Heritage84, Greenandblack, Mitchellcountymountie and yours truly all went 14-2, Reynoldsrocks23, titanman24 and cougars12 all went 13-3. Heritagewatchmen28 went 12-4 while WNCfootballfanfan went 11-5. Midline went 11-4 and Vikingcountry went 13-2 after not picking the Thursday night game.
  19. How does AC follow up their 70+ point game last week? By putting up 82! Lol. Their offense is destroying scoreboards so far. They should get a great test next friday when they travel to South Iredell--- that game could be something special
  20. I stopped in Sparta today to visit Alleghany High School for the CarolinaPreps.com Stadium Project Tour I've been on this summer and I must say, since they renovated and re-painted the stadium, it's on of the nicest I've seen this year. Sure, it lacks in size and structure like some of the large, more modern ones do, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in character, cleanliness, and class. Not only was the football stadium in top shape, the baseball and softball fields were top of the line. I think Sparta is the hidden gem of our state, and Alleghany High School is certainly a destination you'll want to see if you find yourself in Northwestern NC.
