Great regular season for our County teams. Burns, Crest, Kings Mtn, and Shelby all end the regular season with 9 wins. They did not loose a game at home. The only game lost by a county team to anybody other than a county team was KM to Huss. They call it the road to a championship.  We just call it highway 74.

The home of great football ever Friday night. No doubt the best football county in the state. Some great bbq around the area also. Lots of pride and good people. Only thing missing are teeth.

Come on GDG, most of em's got three or four. Most of em or at least have of em have more rings than teeth.

The teeth thing is why 98Champion became a dentist. He seen all the potential in Cleveland County. Place is a potential goldmine.

You’ve worked up here in Catawba County. It’s genetics here in Newton. Too many overnight family reunions. You finally come out to play this year on the forums?

I've said this for a long time.  The best football being played in NC is in Cleveland County.  There are some posters on this board who think differently.  They just can't see the forest for the trees.  The only reason that I can attribute this success in the Bar-B-Que at Red Bridges.  What do you guys feed those hogs?

There are some very tough opponents ahead for everyone except Shelby. Having said that all those games are more than winnable. The possibility of four teams in the third round could happen. That would be exciting for the entire county. Very impressed with the offensive line of Shelby. Those trench guys need more recognition.

Yeah....imagine....the 2AA Western Finals being in Shelby playing fellow Cleveland County team Burns and the 3A Western Finals being played at Crest against Kings Mountain would be incredible.  Has there been a county with 4 or more high schools where 100% of the schools were playing in the western finals and against each other?  Shelby and Crest are less than 5 miles apart....what a night that would be?!?!?!

I bump this back up to the top as three of four schools are in the western finals. At least in my world this is the football County of North Carolina. As football dwindles across the state one of these four teams continue to appear in a championship game.

I can only recall a couple years that a Cleveland County team has not appeared in a state title game in two decades. With Shelby vs Burns next week it is going to happen again. Crest is the fourth best team in Cleveland County. It’s true. I can’t believe I was able to get that out of my lips.

Yeah....I really wish we (Shelby) had gone small 2A so CleCo could possibly be represented in 3 State Championship games. Not much fun having to go up against a county rival and only 1 of us being able to go on.
