  1. Report from HighSchool OT: Holly Springs forfeits football games, dropped from playoffs due to ineligible player
  2. We were assured that the S. Caldwell snafu would never occur again, it happens again. Not quite as bad but almost. #4 Hoggard (5-5), BYE I have a difficult time with a team with a 5-5 record getting a BYE when there are teams with much better records who are #10 and higher seeds. I don't care what the seeding process dictates. Just my biased opinion.
  3. https://carolinapreps.com/2019/11/09/road-to-the-championships-playoff-brackets-are-now-set/ The brackets are now set.
  4. At this moment it looks like there will be a three way tie in the SPC for 2nd place between Kannapolis,Central Cabarrus,and Cox Mill. How will they decide the 2nd place team in the conference if this tie does occur? Will they have a draw for the 2nd place team or will they let Max Preps decide who gets the number two spot in the SPC?
  5. Let’s name them: Wallace Rose Hill was beaten by East Duplin. Wallace now has 4 losses. East Lincoln put 63 points on West Lincoln. South Point Belmont loss to Chase. Pretty much guarantees a losing season for the Red Raiders. Undefeated West Stanley gets crushed by Anson County and doesn’t even score. West Stanley’s strength of schedule before the game was 83rd in 2A. Undefeated Oak Gove Beaten by 6-3 Thomasville. Parkland wins over Mt. Tabor who doesn’t even score. Salisbury beaten by 4 loss North Davidson. WBTV in Charlotte declares HM Hough vs Mallard Creek game of the week. Snooze fest as Mallard Creek wins by 39 with their own kids.
  6. Will ADMs be made public this week?
  7. The annual renewal of one of the mountains fiercest rivalry games. This game has been stellar for decades. Swain leads the series 38-35 overall but tonight is special. Murphy Head Coach David Gentry tries to set the all time wins record in NC. Beating Swain County would be a perfect end to this quest. Post your thoughts fellas.

  9. What was the reason for the adjusted rankings? What do they do to them to adjust them? What's wrong with the regular rankings? Why do they need to be adjusted? A couple teams were in that are not now once the rankings were "adjusted"

    My Realignment Proposal

    6 classes-No Subdividing 417 Total Schools from what I can gather Split as even as possible. Based on the 18-19 ADMs, the classes would look something like this. Class 1A- 74 Schools-32 Team brackets for all sports except football, which would be a 24 team bracket due to the number of 1A schools not fielding football teams. *Regular Season Champs season with tier of 1's in maxpreps order, then everyone else based on maxpreps.

  11. With this week's release of the updated MaxPreps.com Adjusted Rankings, the same ones that the NCHSAA will use in November to seed the playoffs brackets, there has been a lot of chatter back and forth, both on this and other websites, and directed towards me personally, through a long list of text messages from the head coaches themselves, asking about whether they (the rankings) should even be in use. I have to agree, with some of the positions teams are ranked at throughout this latest release, there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why some teams are ranked high, and why others are ranked low, and by low, some are very low in comparison to our rankings here at CP, and the Associated Press polls. My question is this; should the NCHSAA use a ranking system in the first place? Is it necessary? If so, are there any ways you would change it, and if not, what system would you put in its place for seeding the playoffs? One of the biggest complaints from coaches, is that there is no transparency with the formula. The NCHSAA maintains that it's a proprietary algorithm by MaxPreps, so therefore the equation or factors have never been clearly defined. We all assume that it takes into account strength of schedule, but from things I've been told, is that it may take into account your opponents strength of schedule more so. One thing we do know is that with the adjusted portion of the rankings, it is supposed to take out the margin of victory factor of the equation, so as not to encourage blowouts and unsportsmanlike play, for the sake of improving one teams standing. With all the chatter about it, it makes me wonder if going back to the old way may not be a better idea, and by old way, I mean the old, old way, that was used prior to 1997 when there were predetermined brackets. I think you could go to a hybrid of the predetermined brackets, with the #1 and #2 seeds from a conference filling out the majority of the bracket, then having the wild cards thrown in after the fact, and come up with a more concrete, and tangible tie-breaker method, even if it means going back to coin-tosses. Now I agree that there isn't a perfect solution, but I wanted to throw this out there as food for thought, and to get the fans perspective.
  12. I have posted the latest list I can find on my website. A lot of games on Monday. Several have been postponed to other weeks. Click on Week 3 predictions/scoreboard http://www.simmonsratings.com/hsfbpred.htm
  13. Please post any games moved due to Hurricane Dorian. South Creek at Riverside Martin has been moved to Wednesday at 7 p.m.
  14. Hope I seen this right. Monroe up 20-0 over Kings Mountain at the end of 1st. But Kings Mountain came back and won over Monroe 35-20. Anyone have any details for this game. Any more big comebacks from this past week games.
  15. with the hurricane coming is there any games moved up
  16. I am sorry for this, but I will not be having an update for this week. I work for the Carolina Mudcats baseball team during the summer, and we had our final homestand all this week. I have not been home to work on the ratings, and therefore won't have them done in time. It's a situation that "is what it is". Things should return to normal next week. Again, I apologize.
  17. Murphy Head Coach David Gentry has earned another distinguished honor in his long and storied career. Just 7 wins away from becoming the all-time winningist coach in NC history, Gentry was enshrined in the National High School Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame. https://www.citizen-times.com/story/sports/high-school/hshuddle/2019/06/26/murphys-david-gentry-inducted-into-national-hall-fame/1569166001/?fbclid=IwAR2cbNBUUdRKtMn2cUKDDIDdAozj22KSM26e9two9VYa7MGAmb7P4IBEEx8
  18. How is Trey Robinson not on the NC Shrine Bowl roster? I understand he may not have the QB stats to make it as a QB but as a RB or Athlete, or DB/LB? its insane to have a kid of this caliber who leads WNC in career rushing, career TD and single season TD scored not on a roster with the state's best. This has to be a inadvertent oversight and not a purposeful omission on the part of the NC coaching staff. And this is a call to correct that oversight. Trey Robinson has been a force for Mountain Heritage football now for 4 years. With him as their starting QB, Mountain Heritage has went 41-12 over the past 4 years, and excluding the freshman campaign of 6-6 they are 35-6. The following accomplishments are indicative not only of Trey but of all his team-mates and their countless hours of hard work and dedication to Mountain Heritage football. Those kids deserve the right to have their efforts represented by Trey in this game. Trey Robinson: 2017 Attempts: 344 Yards: 3146 (1st in the State 4th in the Nation) YPC; 9.1 YPG; 224.7 Rushing TD: 45 (9th All time in NC) 12th in the Nation Points scored: 316 avg of 22.6 a game 1st in the State (5th in the Nation) Career-wise: Trey is the only player in NC history to rush for 8000 and pass for 4000 Broke Johnny Frasier's record of 50 points scored in a game with 52 vs Whiteville Career Attempts: 1117-3rd All time in NC Yards: 8552 -6th All time in NC Rushing TD: 109 -5th All time in NC behind McClendon, Parks, Hood and Henry Total Yardage: 12,933 3rd All time in NC behind Leak and Surratt Points Scored: 765 3rd All time in NC behind McClendon and Parks Touchdown Responsibility: 170 4th All time behind Surratt, Leak and McClendon -Passing-wise Trey was 42-91 for 851 yards 13 TD and 4 INT -Career Passing 231-485 4381 yards 61 TD 29 INT -Rushed for 100 or more yards in every game, 200 or more 8 times and 300 or more twice in 2017 for his career: 100 or more yards 43 times, 200 or more 10 times. 3rd all time in NC with 43 100 yard games behind Parks and Henry -Defensively Trey saw action in 16 quarters on the year (mostly in the playoffs and sparingly through-out the regular season) and recorded 60 tackles, 2.0 TFL, 4 INT and 10 pass break ups from the free safety position.

  20. Heritage makes the trip to Reidsville a few rounds later than last year. Heritage played some great ball last night, Reidsville handled South Columbus. This is what everyone expected when the year began and now it's here!
  21. Hendo peaking, Heritage rolling, Should be a huge game and a great one at E.L Briggs!
  22. Congrats to the cougars on another fine season, baring any shocker friday night we are looking at a 2 over-all seed in the West and HOPEFULLY wont leave home till the regional final! Look forward to seeing some great teams heading our way! It'll be awesome to get the mountain weather and the grass of the pit through November, Maybe even December? we'll see! Congrats to everyone for great years and lets get ready to start up season 2!
  23. WNC playoff picks should be fun this season with the new “better” system. 1AA West Swain should ease by North Stanly and Avery just won’t keep up with East. #5 MW North Stanly (7-4) @ #4 W Swain County (5-6): Swain 28-17 #6 W Avery County (3-8) @ #3 MW East Montgomery (10-1): East 48-14 1A West Murphy and Mitchell by as much as they want, while Robbinsville and Cherokee advance. Hayesville could pull an upset in the first round but get Mitchell if they do. Rosman and Andrews fight but eventually fall and Thomas Jefferson takes its first steps toward a possible 3rd match up with Murphy. #8 MW South Robeson (1-9) @ #1 W Murphy (10-1): Murphy 56-10 #5 W Robbinsville (4-6) @ #4 MW Winston-Salem Prep (4-6): Robbinsville 21-14 #6 MW Bishop McGuinness (4-7) @ #3 W Thomas Jefferson Academy (9-2): TJA 31-21 #7 W Andrews (2-9) @ #2 MW Mountain Island Charter (8-3): MIC 31-17 #8 W Rosman (2-9) @ #1 MW North Duplin (7-4): North Duplin 28-9 #5 MW Union Academy (4-7) @ #4 W Cherokee (7-4): Cherokee 28-20 #6 W Hayesville (2-8) @ #3 MW Alleghany (5-6): Hayesville 21-20 #7 MW Chatham Central (3-8) @ #2 W Mitchell (10-1): Mitchell 56-14 2AA West Smoky gets East for the third straight year and sees the same results while Franklin travels to face a good Cramer team. #5 W Franklin (6-5) @ #4 MW Cramer (7-4): Franklin 18-16 #6 W Smoky Mountain (7-4) @ #3 MW East Lincoln (9-2): East 49-12 2A West Madison had the biggest turn around in the WHC but it comes to an end tonight. Heritage and Hendersonville advance pretty easily while Polk struggles. Interestingly enough Brevard is the big surprise in this bracket. After a couple of down years the Blue Devils face a huge challenge from Carver. They better be ready to play the best athletes they’ve seen this season. #6 MW Lexington (5-5) @ #3 W Hendersonville (8-3): Hendersonville 28-17 #7 W Polk County (5-6) @ #2 MW Surry Central (10-1): Surry Central 31-17 #8 W Madison (5-6) @ #1 MW Reidsville (11-0): Reidsville 56-7 #5 MW West Stanly (7-4) @ #4 W Mountain Heritage (10-1): Heritage 49-10 #7 MW Carver (5-6) @ #2 W Brevard (9-2): Brevard 21-20 3AA West Reynolds advances and most likely will be the lone representative from the MAC. Asheville and Erwin both hold their own but fall to good teams. #8 MW Central Cabarrus (5-6) @ #1 W AC Reynolds (9-2): ACR 27-20 #5 W Erwin (6-5) @ #4 MW Sun Valley (8-3): Sun Valley 31-28 #6 W Asheville (6-5) @ #3 MW Hickory Ridge (9-2): Hickory Ridge 28-23 3A West The Falcons meet one of the piedmonts most consistant teams and struggles to control the RedBone. Tuscola unleashes the Mountain Bone on the Bearcats while Pisgah advances past Jesse Carson. Could there be a looming playoff showdown in the tird round, and what would that 50/50 be? #8 W West Henderson (4-7) @ #1 MW South Point (7-4): South Point 31-10 #5 MW Anson County (4-7) @ #4 W Tuscola (10-1): Tuscola 38-14 #7 MW Carson (4-7) @ #2 W Pisgah (10-1): Pisgah 37-10 4A West TC Roberson continues its huge turnaround from last season. The Rams could throw a scare into some established 4A teams in this bracket. If they get by North Davidson first. #5 MW North Davidson (7-4) @ #4 W TC Roberson (8-3): TCR 17-15 4AA West McDowell has played so much better this season, but it won't be enough to handle Butler. #8 W McDowell (5-6) @ #1 MW Butler (10-1): Butler 49-7
  24. With the new seeding being use this year being based on overall win percentage what do you think will be the cut off? Will a .500 be good enough? Higher or lower?
  25. At Friday's game between East Rowan and Carson, ER's back Wall was ejected after a kick return. The way I saw the play was the return man cut across the field and then reversed course. This set up a blind side block that happens on every return with a cross field return. Wall made that block. The instant it happened I looked at the ref standing next to the block to see if he threw a flag, as with Carson's low visitor's section, it was hard to get a clear look if his head was in front or not. He didn't throw a flag. BUT as the play ended, what looked like a yellow shooting star came in from 25 yds away upfield. Then the closest ref dropped his flag. So I thought "ok, I don't know how he made the call from there, but I guess a block in the back." NOPE, after a discussion it was ruled unsportsman like conduct and an ejection. The Salisbury Post only said Wall was ejected. There has been no other information given to the public. Would a block in the back warrant an ejection? Or, is it the new wussification of football on a clean hit? Can the tape be sent in to appeal the following game suspension? The refs seemed to be as overly sensitive as a teenage girl. There were 18 penalties in the first half alone (not one sided). And not personal fouls or unsportman likes to warrant the tight calling. Wall is known as a very polite and humble kid, so I would doubt the normal reasons for ejection came into play.
