  1. First game I have made it to this year. My take on the Wolves is they played a tough team from SC. Good size and has some athletes. MC had trouble moving the ball all game. Defense was on the field majority of time and to hold them to 20 was shocking. Defense played hard, just way to many arm tackles. Offense was out matched with the D of theirs. Fumbles also hurt, had several. Overall tough game and hopefully offense can figure it out and Defense get healthy

  3. Any thoughts on this game tonight? Browns going against a team they built into a powerhouse. I am going with MC to win in a close game.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Richmond Senior High School has a vacancy for a JV Coach. There are possible teaching vacancies in English, Math, and EC. We also have several TA positions available. Richmond has a strong tradition and it is a great place to get experience as a young coach or continue to impact kids as an experienced guy. They are trying to find the best possible fit for the staff so all positions will be considered. Please contact Head Coach Bryan Till via email with a resume and references at bryantill@richmond.k12.nc.us.
  10. 4A West Top Bracket: #1 Dudley vs. McDowell #8 Watauga vs. #9 Southwest Guilford -- #5 Reagan vs. #12 A.L. Brown #4 South Caldwell vs. #13 High Point Central Bottom Bracket: #3 Charlotte Catholic vs. #14 Vance #6 T.C. Roberson vs. #11 Seventy-First -- #7 North Davidson vs. #10 Southeast Guilford #2 Scotland vs. #15 Davie My opinion: This is a very competitive bracket from top to bottom, but there are certainly some favorites and potential upsets. I don't think anyone will argue that Dudley is a shoe-in for the third round. Who they face is the big question. I feel this Friday's game between Reagan and Kannapolis will be the clash that determines who faces off against the Panthers. I feel Kannapolis is the favorite based on physical toughness, strength of defense, and strength of competition and schedule. While I've seen both teams multiple times, I feel Kannapolis not only has the offensive weapons to keep pace with Reagan's high-octane offense, but the Wonders more importantly have the defense to stop them in crucial situations. While I'm going to stop short of making this an out-right win for the boys in green, it's certainly the best game in the 4A this week and one I'm certain to see. High Point Central will be a tall task for South Caldwell. While I feel the Spartans could pull it off, I think both will face a potential stopping block against either Kannapolis or Reagan. The bottom bracket is just as interesting. While Charlotte Catholic is a machine and those kids are extremely well coached and run their system to perfection, I'd be scared to death to face Vance. I don't think, I know that Vance has the talent to stop the Catholic season and they could easily advance all the way to the finals as a #14 seed. However I do think Catholic will find a way to pull away late, but I won't call the shot and claim Catholic wins easy. This will be a fight. I think Seventy-First will give T.C. Roberson all kinds of fits and regardless of the long drive, the Falcons will come home victorious and most likely face Catholic, but we could also see a Vance at Seventy-First matchup win the second round as well, be prepared. North Davidson should have the firepower to beat Southeast Guilford but they could be deflated a bit after Friday's emotional win over West Forsyth. I think Mark Holcombe can find a way to get his troops grounded after that big win. Finally though, it's my opinion that they're all playing for second because I see Scotland going all the way to the 4th round and most likely defeating Dudley for the right to play for the championship.
  11. Just letting everyone know that plans on attending about the presale for game. There expecting 3,000 to 4,0000 maybe 5,000. Going to be sold at East Montgomery high school.

  13. Is the Raider Magic back? Having seen Richmond County twice in person, and also having watched a lot of film on them, I see a team that has shown tremendous growth from week to week and a group of young men that is showing the swagger and confidence to be a serious force in the 4AA playoffs. Coming into this season, there were obviously a lot of questions about the Raiders. Of course the big one is the new head coach, relatively new staff, and changing of offensive and defensive schemes and systems. We all remember the drama that played out over the spring as the coaching search was going on. The entire process was on public display as our website and other media outlets tracked nearly every move, and most all fans gave their input, whether positive or negative about the situation, administration, and former staff. With all the unknowns surrounding the program, the departure of Paul Hoggard, and the incoming staff having very little time to prepare and participate in spring practice, I ranked the Raiders 22nd in the preseason rankings. Obviously I couldn't have been more wrong, but it's only human nature to de-value something when there are so many question marks surrounding it. There have been a few constants that have remained intact at Richmond Senior. Yes coaches have come and gone, principals have come and gone, and the school has graduated a tremendous amount of star players, many of which have gone on to excel at the highest levels of football, but with all that transition and turn-over, the expectations have never wavered. It's always been championships or bust. Speaking of talent, this team is no exception. The kids on this team are special, and collectively may be one of the greatest collections of speed, size, and desire to succeed in the state. Standing on the sidelines last night watching this team take on Pinecrest, you could just see the laser-focused looks on these kids faces, and the talent was on display as the Raiders pulled away in the 4th quarter to win 49-28. I've seen some of the best ever come though Richmond, I've personally watched Flip Ellerbie, Mike Thomas, Michael Waddell, and many others who's made this program among the best in the nation. With all of them, they have an extra gear that allows them to turn it up a notch when the chips are on the line. I saw that last night in kids like Quintal Goodwin and Leon Ziegler. However, one thing that I really like about this team is how head coach Mike Castellano and offensive coordinator Steve Burdeau have spread the ball around, and there's not always just one player you need to stop. One of the things that Pinecrest head coach Chris Metzger expressed concern about when Castellano took over for the Raiders was just that. He told me last summer that with the Raiders spreading the ball around, and getting some of their best athletes in space to make plays instead of always grinding them between the tackles would make them so much harder to beat. His thoughts couldn't have been more true in last night's game. On defense, the Raiders seek and attack. The side to side speed allows them to close down on teams that try and attack you underneath with screens, and the secondary is fast enough to run with some of the fastest receivers in the state. But where i really like this defense is up front. Against a really good Pinecrest offensive line, the Raiders defensive linemen crashed down on them and forced quarterback Christian Ledbetter to run for his life, and make plays on the run instead of having the comfort of hitting receivers from the pocket. Of course you could feel the excitement from the fans, and when standing on the home sideline, it was quite a sight to see hundreds of fans waiving their gold towels around in the air, reminiscent of Pittsburgh's Terrible Towels. The last question is this? It used to be that Richmond owned rival Scotland. It didn't matter that the Fighting Scots had the most talent, or had momentum on their side, the Raiders always entered that contest knowing that they would win, not hoping that they would. But now the tables have turned, under head coach Richard Bailey, the Scots are now the class of the 4A. The talent in the stables in Laurinburg is just as strong, just as fast, and just as plentiful as the Raiders. The coaching will be just as good and those fans will be just as rabid in their expectations to win. Can the Raiders go into Pate Stadium and claim their first out-right conference title in years? And then can they take it to the next level and win their first 4AA title since 2008? I think they can. I know we hear Charlotte this, and Charlotte that! It's true, Charlotte-Mecklenburg teams have owned the 4AA in recent years. But if anyone can line up man-to-man with a Charlotte squad and not be afraid or back down, it's Richmond. It's going to be fun watching the Raiders in November. Can they bring the magic back?
  14. This is one of the top games in NC for Friday night, and the opener for the Union Power Cooperative Gridiron Clash being played on the turf at Monroe HS this weekend. Both squads come into this game undefeated and highly ranked in the Power Rankings. Obviously we know how far Cuthbertson made it last year, nearly going all the way to Raleigh to play for the title, and Pinecrest has become one of the scrappiest and toughest playing 4A teams in NC. This is really a clash of styles. Pinecrest runs the Carson-Newman split back veer as well as anyone and they run it to near perfection. The Patriots are very big up front and have tremendous size and experience on both sides of the ball. Cuthbertson, led by QB Austin Kendal is smooth, and looks like the high school version of Joe Montana's 49ers. I think this will be a classic. I kind of have the feeling Pinecrest wins going away, but not enough that I would put money on this game, it will be a tight one. If your team has an off-night or playing a cupcake, I would consider driving down to Monroe for this one. The ticket gets you this game and 3 big ones on Saturday as well, including Charlotte Christian vs. Weddington.
  15. 6-2 last week, 13-3 this season. Albemarle continues to confound me. Union Academy disappointed me last week. East Montgomery surprised me and bounced back from a season opening loss. Dang, what may be next??? West Stanly @ Albemarle, Albemarle 20-18 Kestral Heights @ Chatham Central, KH 35-12 Trinity @ East Montgomery, EM 34-14 South Davidson @ West Davidson, WD 48-8 South Stanly @ Anson, Anson 35-7 Union Academy @ Central Academy, 27-7 Thomasville @ West Montgomery, WM 33-22 I don't want to give up on Albemarle, but West Stanly may take this one. They appear to be improved somewhat. Technically, thanks to last season's forfeit win over Albemarle, the Chatham Central losing streak moves up to nine, but, the Bears have not won on the field since the 2013 regular season finale versus South Davidson, thus, a soon to be 15 game losing skid. The agony in Bear Creek continues. East Montgomery gets a win in its home opener. Anson herds the Rowdy Rebel Bulls. Central Academy defeats Union Academy. West Montgomery wins its home opener.
  16. Scotland out of the gate 28 - 0, then Indy back to 28-13 and driving. Scots hold then take over once again with Zamir White leading the way. 29 carries for 296 yards and 6 tds (1 for 1 passing also) yds # info via LBG Exchange Scotland @ Marlboro (SC) next week.
