    Beat Mallard Creek 13-7 to advance to the next round
  4. Charlotte Catholic JR LB Liam Barbee is something special. Below I will post links to his full season highlight from last year and links to his individual highlights from this year. Kid can flat out play. At 6'1" and around 210-215 kid can fly and has a legit shot if he stays healthy to leave as Catholic's all time leading tackler. Against Archbishop Rummel Barbee recorded 23 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. He has a shot to be a 150+ tackle guy with 41 already in just three games. A college is going to get him and be very very happy. http://www.hudl.com/video/3/9926467/5bbf4013664b8e0e9c93dfe0 (Sophomore season) http://www.hudl.com/v/2BfgL8 (Archbiship Rummel) http://www.hudl.com/v/2BfYMn (Good Counsel)
  5. Anyone else find it funny that Charlotte Catholic has two losses when playing similar competition in other private schools? A private school with no-boundaries should not be allowed to play with public schools. Private Schools playing in public school leagues have almost killed prep football in Pennsylvania. Lots of studies have shown that private schools routinely out perform public schools in just about every measurable sport except boys basketball and even then its close. Private schools have distinct advantages in no boundaries, funding of athletics/school, and being able to be selective in the athletes it accepts to the team. Most private Parochial schools have a built in feeder middle school that only feeds on private highschool and they can weed out low academic performers. Bottomline these type of parochial private schools should not be playing in public school playoffs.
  6. Myers Park will be tested mentally in this game at The Big I since this is the crossover to postseason. I expect them to beat Independence after that spectacular game vs Porter Ridge but why was Drake Maye still playing after the 3rd quarter ended. Ok they wanted to let him get one more score but MP has to start playing more disciplined football gambling with Drake near the end of season. And towards the end of the game they were so determined to get that last TD instead of running the clock out probably to make a statement to Mallard Creek. Just play humble and dont get into this routine of making silly decisions especially around the playoffs.
  7. Congrats to the Charlotte Catholic women's tennis team and field hockey teams for winning state titles on Saturday. Women's tennis completed a three-peat winning over New Hanover 5-1, the one loss was the only match the Cougars lost all playoffs. Was their second straight undefeated season. Congrats to field hockey who beat Myers Park 1-0 at App State, was the third time the two faced off and Catholic finally got it done. That makes I think 77 state championships now won by the Cougars in various sports. Proud to coach at a school where excellence is not a one sport thing
  8. We've got a big I-Meck game on tap for this Friday between Hough and Mallard Creek. Hough has seemed to be down and has somewhat flown under the radar, but they are playing some decent football now and their three losses were to Myers Park, Byrnes, and Butler. Mallard Creek continues to churn out good performances and is ranked atop the CP Power Rankings as the best team in the 4A class. What are your thoughts on this game?
  9. This week Big Blue makes the trip down into lion territory. West Charlotte is one of my favorite places to catch a game. Like the facilities they’ve got there. Not really sure what the landscape of small 4A is when it comes to playoffs... I feel like after last Friday it’s going to be shaken up a good bit... but I feel like this is a pretty important game for both. A win here may give us a decent chance at a home playoff game. I don’t know a ton about the lions this season.. but I do know they are an extremely well coached team. I think Coach Harris has done a phenomenal job with that lions program. They execute so well, especially that defense. Going to be a good test, I’m just hoping we come out on top! Go Big Blue!
  10. If you haven't been watching the Talking Preps shows each week over at the Charlotte Observer featuring Langston Wertz, Sam Greiner, Dale Ross of CarolinaVarsity.com, and myself, then you should go check it out. We covered a lot of topics this week. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/high-school/article236805028.html
  11. Not meaning to start a flame war, just wondering why Charlotte Catholic plays in the public school division instead of the private school classification? Would they dominate the private schools if they played them? I'm not very familiar with the private schools and most of what I've learned has come from this forum. Catholic just seems like an entirely different beast compared to the others, or is that just an inaccurate perception on my part?
  12. I don't know how many people here have inside knowledge but I am curious to know what happened here. The JV dressed 35-37 kids Thursday night and looked very solid on both sides of the ball. The varsity had about 25 kids. The Max Preps roster lists only 8 seniors and I didn't see 2 or 3 of them anywhere either playing or on sideline including Stewart the South Carolina commit. This was a 9 win team 2 years ago and I watched their JV back then and they really looked to me like a team that was gonna be right there with the rest of the 3 schools in the Northern Suburbs. Have they lost a ton of kids to another school? Injury? Where did all these kids go?
  13. Butler is probably the best 5-3 team in NC, and despite the fact that Hickory Ridge lost 52-14 to Myers Park on Friday, they are very strong as well. Both of these squads are physical and well coached, but I may have to give Butler a small edge based on their defense. I think the winner of this game has the inside track on finishing 2nd in the SW4A.
  14. So I heard it 3 weeks ago from a media personality and I sort of laughed. Heard it again last night from Mr. Hughes. What criteria are we using and I am looking for more than how tall he is and stats against JV teams. Thoughts?
  15. Wow 7-1 this year. Losing only to Weddington thus far and reeled off seven wins in a row with a new head coach. Did anyone see this coming?
  16. Charlotte Catholic can't overlook this Parkwood team, the Rebels are very good, and also are very BIG up front. Is this business as usual for the Cougars, or does Parkwood knock them off?
  17. A new high school football all-star game will kick off in Charlotte this year. https://amp.charlotteobserver.com/sports/high-school/article235253322.html?__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR1z4NEo6L3TI0HmdVWgAuXKB3aaXy_eDDFs-6I2hKgDk-HVgH-Q2muH9d4 How will this game effect the Shrine Bowl?
  18. 4-4 West Charlotte at 5-3 Hough. Looks like an interesting game. Any thoughts.
  19. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/high-school/article236403783.html
  20. West Charlotte is a big underdog but who are their star players? What do they do well to be 4-2?
  21. I will be traveling to Charlotte this weekend, can anybody give me a good game to go watch Friday. Just looking for thoughts and ideas from people more familiar to the area, any will help thanks.

    https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/high-school/article234944902.html Nothing against the school but I just find it odd that Knightdale received a top 10 Vote and they haven’t played a quality team yet with a winning record. Knightdales opponents combined record this season is 1-8. And I’m sure there are a few other teams u guys may notice out of place or not present at all on this list of top 10s
  23. Does anyone know if they are any good?
