  4. Many question marks starting out this year, as Coach G departed to Asheboro and with some leaders graduating from our back to back state title runners-up teams from last year and the year before. With the program back in good shape, its been interesting to see how the new head coach and young leaders on offense would respond. Close games against Davie (20-14 OT), Dudley (14-19), E Guilford (19-16), and E Forsyth (20-19), showed us that it takes a team some time to gel and learn a new offense especially with a sophomore QB leading the way. But, they have shown the willingness to play every single down with intensity and never give up. Page went 3-1 in these games. Reagan and East Forsyth had the marbles to schedule homecoming against Page this year. That didn't turn out to be a good idea for them. Page spoils the night twice in Forsyth co. In their last contest, Page won 20-19 after being down 16, the Pirates came back and beat E Forsyth in a field goal thriller (both teams kicked go-ahead field goals w/ under 2 mins to play). Last week, Page had a Bye week, they've been getting ready for Northwest Guilford and the start of conference play. They go into NWG looking to defend the Metro 4A crown. With big games coming against improved Ragsdale with RB Maness and High Point Central. Grimsley plays @Page this year for the 2nd time in all of history... rest assured that no one at Page is taking the Whirlies lightly... Go Pirates!
  5. Bishop McGuinness is looking for a third team for a tri-scrimmage between us and Wheatmore on August 9th @ BMHS. Please contact me at coachdrewhackett@gmail.com if interested.
  6. Davie County HS removed the interim tag from Tim Devericks making him the new head football coach. Devericks was 5-1 this season after taking over from DeVore Holman and led the War Eagles to the 3rd round of the 4A West playoffs.
  7. Anyone have any thoughts on the forsyth county teams this year? Perdictions? Best games? Will East have another dominate season? Will Glenn be able to build off of last years good start? Will West be able to challenge North Davidson and Reagan? Can Carver Get over the hump in their conference? Is Tabor still Tabor? etc List of Forsyth Schools 1.Atkins 2.Carver 3.East Forsyth 4.Glenn 5.Mount Tabor 6.North Forsyth 7.Parkland 8.Reagan 9.Teynolds 10.West Forsyth 11.Winston-Salem Prep
  8. I was able to catch the final minutes of action tonight in Wallburg as Ledford defeated North Forsyth 21-6 to advance to 8-3 on the season and claim the second spot in the Mid-Piedmont 3A behind Southern Guilford. Both teams were very well prepared and played well, North just ran out of ammo as they were seemingly undermanned against the Panthers. The Ledford defense was very stout and pretty much helped spot their offense a two touchdown lead. Quarterback Landon Varner looked solid at QB and had a 46-yard touchdown pass as he started in place of McAllister Ingram. On film, Ingram is a very scrappy QB that I hate I haven't seen live, I think he can be a difference maker for Ledford if they can make a strong playoff run. I want to thank the staff at Ledford and head football coach Chris Adams for having me in their field house for a post-game meal after the game. This staff has been together for a long time and this senior heavy team could make a strong run. When you have a staff that includes hall of famer coach Dickie Cline, you know you have some great knowledge and experience. With the win Adams improves his coaching record to 44-39. North Forsyth has some really good looking kids but head coach Pete Gilchrist is a good enough coach to find a way to win some games in the playoffs. With a week off to heal up and re-focus, I wouldn't turn my back on this Viking squad.
  9. The run that East Forsyth has been on since 2011 is the most dominant in the history. I don't even like EF or Todd Willert really, but when he took over that program it was in shambles and going nowhere and he's done it all on his own. I've been around football in WSFCS for 30 years and have seen some real good teams come through so here are my most dominant eras/teams ever. 1. EAST FORSYTH: 2011-PRESENT 2. MOUNT TABOR: 1994-98 3. CARVER: 1997-2007 4. MOUNT TABOR: 2005-08 5. WEST FORSYTH: 1989-94 6. EAST FORSYTH: 1989-92 7. PARKLAND: 2001-04
  10. This has potential to be a very fun year in the Central Piedmont 4A Conference. Having been very close to this league for over 25 years, I have learned to always expect the unexpected. Many times in the past, teams have been projected to win the league only to finish last, or vise-versa. This is one of the better 4A leagues in N.C. in terms of fan support and some good old fashioned rivalries, and sometimes winning on the opposing teams field is harder than it may appear on paper. Speaking of paper, on paper, North Davidson appears to be the team to beat. I would say 85% of the coaches have told me they expect the Black Knights to win it, and why not, they are very well coached, very talented, very deep, and have a phenomenal, battle-tested QB leading the charge. Senior quarterback Joe Butts, son of former North head coach Bill Butts, is as good a high school quarterback as you could ask for. What he lacks in size (6'0/185) he makes up for in mobility, arm strength, and most importantly, a high football IQ. He has incredible touch on his passes, he can throw on the run, and he is smart enough to know where every player is on the field. When you find a high school kid with that capacity to make quick, but good decisions, in split second instances, and put the ball on the mark, you can feel certain you'll have a great season. You pair Butts abilities and the tools around him with the coaching prowess of Mark Holcomb, and you've got yourself the makings of a great season. I've known Coach Holcomb for years, but having spent a considerable amount of time with him at the Shrine Bowl, watch him coach one-on-one, and sit with him and X & O with him and realize how smart he is, and furthermore, how well he communicates those schemes in an easy to understand package to high school players is something special. Those skills solidifies why he's such a high-level coach and destined to become one of the all-time greats before he hangs up his whistle in a decade or so. Since I mentioned weapons, Nygil Dalton is a stud to be reckoned with. He can play both sides of the ball, he's built very well, and can fly. I fully expect him to be playing on Saturdays in an FCS conference at the very least. There are so many other players that I can't really list them all, but North is flat out loaded, and in my opinion, worthy of the preseason Top-10 ranking I bestowed upon them. Wrapping up my thought on North Davidson, with them returning their receiving corps and having a very seasoned offensive line, they'll be poised to score 40+ almost every night. They have the best kicker in America possibly (Christopher Dunn) so anytime they get across midfield, they can already start thinking 3 points at the very least. Moving on, who is the 2nd best team in the CPC? I think it's a toss up between West Forsyth who is still very young and probably a year away from being very dominant, Reagan, who has to find away to replace some key players, and Davie County who may be just as exciting as North Davidson on the offensive side of the ball. I really think this can be a fun year at Davie County. Not only will this be the last year at the current Davie HS and old stadium, but they have a chance to send that stadium out in style by lighting up the scoreboard lights often behind the arm and legs of QB Chris Reynolds. Reynolds, a small but very effective quarterback will be fun to watch. At around 5'11 and maybe 190, he's solid and can take a few hard hits and keep going, but his swiftness and cannon arm will make him one of the top highlight makers in the Triad. He completed 197 of 317 passes for 2800+ yards and 28 TD's and ran for over 700. He truly is the catalyst for this squad. On the defensive side, James Boyle is a stud at the LB spot and can lay the lumber, he reminds me a lot of Patrick Lowery who was a stud for DC back in the late 90's/early 00's. In my estimation, if he and the other War Eagle defenders can at least bring their B-game, they'll win most nights. The only issue for Davie in my opinion though is their incredibly tough schedule as their non-conference opponents are Greensboro Page, West Rowan, Greensboro Dudley, North Rowan, and Hopewell. Up in Pfafftown, Reagan wil once again be very solid and especially dangerous on the offensive side of the ball. I've said this a time or two before, but Josh McGee has certainly establish himself as one of the top younger coaches in NC. As a former QB, he understand the offensive game and the way he translates his knowledge to the players is the key to his popularity among players, and the cornerstone for his play calling on Friday's. He has established a culture of winning, and of playing a fun-style of football, and I don't see that stopping anytime soon. The only down-side of his rise could be the fact that one day soon a larger, more prominent program could come calling for his services. The positives for Reagan in 2016 is that they return 8 defensive starters. The negative, if there is one, is that the defense was torched for 29 ppg, however, and a big plus, is the fact that McGee was able to bring in the defensive coordinator from Northern Guilford, which will be a huge addition. McGee will also have to break in a new QB and overall offensive unit, but as earlier stated, his offensive coaching skill is second to none so I don't feel that will even be an issue. West Forsyth will be an interesting team to watch as well. I stated earlier that they're probably a year away from doing some special things, but don't sleep on the youngsters that Adrian Snow has playing for him and it all starts with junior defensive end K.J. Henry, the 6'6/210 pounder that is the son of the Catawba College defensive coordinator. Henry will be a 5-star threat by his senior season and has already been recruited by the biggest and best schools in the SEC and the nation. He will be a difference maker on the line of scrimmage and a game changer in crucial moments because of this natural speed and agilities and his exceptional football IQ. These young players were very stout on the Titans JV squad last year and if they can grow up fast, they can win big on Friday nights. Obviously they'll have to replace some key members off of last year's 3rd round team, but I think West has enough veterans to show the young kids the way. One team that we can't count out when talking about the CPC is Mount Tabor. While at 5-6, they didn't resemble the usually potent looking Spartan squads of the past, but head coach Laymarr Marshall has some great looking kids working hard over there and if you overlook them, they'll certainly bite you. Obviously team speed is always the biggest threat any Tabor squad possesses, and I think they have plenty of it in '16. Similar to Davie though, they play a mammoth non-conference schedule that includes East Forsyth, Carver, Glenn, and North Forsyth. Another greatly improved team is Parkland, but again, the schedule is so brutal that you don't know exactly where the chips may fall for them. What I do know is that head coach Martin Samek has changed the culture at Parkland, and they have some incredible looking kids that have really bought into what he's teaching them. The Mustangs will have some great speed across the team, and one of the best athletes in NC ini Kyndel Dean who will certainly be tearing it up on Saturdays in the very near future. R. J. Reynolds in my opinion really exceeded expectations in 2015 under new head coach Pat Crowley, and I feel they'll certainly try to make their mark again this year. With a very manageable non-conference schedule, they could come rolling into CPC play with a winning record and ready to make some noise. Most Anticipated Games: Parkland at West Forsyth (Sep. 23) Reagan at Davie County (Sep. 30) North Davidson at Mt. Tabor (Sep. 30) Reagan at North Davidson (Oct. 7) North Davidson at Davie (Oct. 14) West Forsyth at Reagan (Thurs. Oct. 20) West Forsyth at North Davidson (Nov. 4) Ranking The Coaches: Adrian Snow (West Forsyth): 108-64 (Shrine Bowl '12) Mark Holcomb (North Davidson): 107-46 (Shrine Bowl '15) Laymarr Marshall (Mt. Tabor): 71-31 Josh McGee (Reagan): 39-22 Martin Samek (Parkland): 18-60 DeVore Holman (Davie County): 15-20 Pat Crowley (R.J. Reynolds): 4-7 My Projections: 1. North Davidson 2. West Forsyth 3.

  11. I've received reports from Davie County High School that head football coach DeVore Holman has stepped down immediately due to personal reasons. I'm told he will remain as the ISS teacher. Coach is a good friend of mine and this is sudden news, I've reached out to him but haven't heard back. I'm told that Tim Devericks will take over as the interim head coach. Davie is having one of their best seasons in a long time and is ranked 7th in this week's CP Top-25 rankings.
  12. My first trip up 85 this year to watch a game. 2nd year in a row watching this matchup. Seems like another potential classic. After the upset loss in game one Page has absolutely lit everyone up averaging 54 pts a game. East Forsyth defense is one of the best in the state giving up less than one TD a game. One of you Kvegas- Greensboro guys give me some insight.
  13. Don't know much about Glenn this will be the first time playing them. Any thoughts.
  14. Any thoughts on this match up? not sure what Reagan has this year.. Page is on somewhat of a roll since losing in week 1 to Davie, many thought that loss was one that got away from the Pirates.
  15. Don't know if any one noticed but Mount Tabor is back my friends. Friday's shellacking of Glenn was expected if you follow the Spartans. Da'Quan Mason was the workhorse on the ground rushing for over 100 yards and scoring five touchdowns. He has 9 on the season. The Spartan defense made highly touted Glenn QB Stephon Brown look normal picking him off on the first play of the game. I know there is a love affair with other CPC teams like North Davidson and West Forsyth and Reagan, but this years Tabor squad is different than any others in recent years. They resemble more of a Bob Sapp team that will punch you in the mouth.
  16. who ya got West Forsyth- Davie County- North Davidson- RJ Renyolds- Reagan- Parkland- Mt. Tabor-
  17. Great win for the Falcons. Defense stepped up when it had to,and the offense put it in the endzone when they had to. NW has some big time players. Hennigan, Turner, Finney, and Cloud to just name a few - they have a lot to look forward to the rest of the season. Hated to see Hennigan get hurt - Any update on his condition? I am hoping that it wasn't as bad as it looked when it happened. Even with Hennigan hurt, NW has a good group of athletes that can make big plays. Best of luck the rest of the way to both teams!
