Posted by Andy Durham on August 16, 2013 at 10:55 pm under High School | 72 Comments to Read

Northern Guilford 21, Crest 7 at Kings Mountain…..
Tracking SWG…..We had SEG, Smith, HP Andrews, Eastern, Southern, Western, Grimsley, Northwest, Ragsdale, Grimsley, Northeast and many more on the field tonight…

Looking for scores, reports, etc. from tonight’s high school football scrimmages around our area…..Got any news, pass it along and we can see how the teams did this evening….Still looking for a reoprt on Page at Athens Drive from Thursday night….


  • Tigers said,

    How’d the boys from ragsdale look tonight. How bout those quarterbacks they have?

  • Coach Res said,

    Very proud of the Grimsley Whirlies…started off a little slow vs Reidsville but picked up the tempo. Once the Whirlies got rolling Reidsville’s defense was getting tired. Got to hand it to Reidsville though, very athletic and tuff. Not much size but a lot of heart. Coaching staff there gets the most out of those kids at Reidsville. Grimsley had 4 td’s to Reidsville’s 3.
    The second game vs McMichael was much more exciting…fast tempo and much better execution. First series got 1 Td on offense.Then from there on out Grimsley scored at will. Finished with 8 Td’s to McMichael’s 1. Game was really physical, and the Blue Death Defense of Grimsley was flying to the football and caused problems for McMichael’s offense.
    We still have a bit to work on to be where we want to be. This Grimsley team is and never will be satisfied. We will be better every play and every day than the last. I am excited about being a part of getting Grimsley Football back into the mix of the Metro and 4a. Coach Neal is getting the program turned around, and he has put together a winning staff. We have something to definitely build on and we are excited about this season and the journey we will take these young men on. Next up…Ragsdale…time to clock in and get after it for real. GO WHIRLIES!!!

  • Coach Res said,

    Sorry…lol…for real* (not well)

  • Mac come up with that? said,

    Coach Res,
    Congrats! Was very impressed with what I saw but Blue Death Really? Can’t you come up with something original?

  • Long Time said,

    Been reading on this site for a long time but can’t ever remember a coach posting such nonsense especially being a scrimmage. Can’t believe that was Grimsley coach

  • Silent Assassin said,

    High Point Central was very impressive in their scrimmage tonight against Reynolds High. Offense was explosive and the defense was suffocating. The Bison scored 9 times and held the Demons to 0 points. Now time for the Red Raiders!!

  • kms51 said,

    I didn’t see Grimsley score 4 times on Reidsville, I believe Grimsley scored 3 times, unless I missed something.

  • Coach Res said,

    Now I don’t usually respond to sensitive people, but there is some sensitive people on this site. Andy and his staff do a great job with this site and no matter what, there are always those sensitive people that just don’t get it!!! @Long Time…Nonsense, really…the only nonsense is your post…Grimsley has been down for years, heck I think they have only won like maybe 12 games in the last 5 yrs…so if I am excited to be a part of getting Grimsley back on track and be competitive and not be a walk-over anymore and you have to be prepared to play us and not look past us so be it!!! There was no trash talk, no putting down anyone, nothing but pride for a team that is finding their way, if you want to knock that, shame on you maam, I say maam cause you are to sensitive to be a man. I hope you are a parent of an opponent, coach of an opponent, or whatever you are, but Grimsley will be ready to play every game and you will see…I’m glad you are a hater, haters make hardworking people better. I apologize Andy for ranting on this, but this is absurd. Yes, I understand we have the right to our opinion, but some people like this guy shouldn’t have one! GO WHIRLIES!!!!!

  • Long Time said,

    You remember what you say on Saturday morning after you play my Pirates!!

  • Coach Res said,

    @mac come up with that…appreciate it, the kids are working hard. We are happy with our scrimmages, but have a bit to work on, but all is able to be coached and fixed so that is a plus. Haha, Blue Death…that’s the “D”…lol…Coach Mac gets the Defense fired up and ready to go.

  • Mark said,

    Coach Res,
    Time to lay off drinks and get some shut eye

  • Coach Res said,

    @long time…Now I got a lot of love for those coaches at Page…one of my good friends is the OLine coach…you must not be one of their coaches because you are worried about a week 8 matchup…those coaches at page are getting ready for Northern…we are getting ready for Ragsdale…our game will be very competitive…I assure you, Grimsley will not be a pushover!!!

  • Coach Res said,

    @kms51…we scored 3 our 2nd to last series and 1 our last…no worries though, no winners or losers…everyone is getting ready for season…Coach Teague is a heck of a guy and coach, and was glad to meet him…Good luck on your season Reidsville…

  • Coach Res said,

    @mark…funny, no drinks here my friend…multitasking while charting plays…success comes from preparation…I will sleep when my time is up on this great earth…until then, nothing but work my friend!!!

  • RamParent said,

    Man… Northeast looked really good against Central Davidson and Ledford. Scary good!! Speed everywhere. I think it was 5tds to none against CD and 4-1 vs Ledford.

  • NW Football said,

    From what I saw tonight NW Guilford may be one of the biggest sleepers in the area if not the state! They flat out dominated Lexington and Mt Tabor. I think they scored 10 or more TD’s on Lexington and let up maybe two TD’s on defense. When they played Tabor I lost count on about to 12th or 13th TD they scored. Then on defense they let up maybe 1 or 2 scores….The Vikings are going to be a tough match up for anyone they face this year! Good luck to all the teams in Greensboro and Go Vikings!!!

  • kms51 said,

    Coach Res, I probably missed that. Or I just miscounted, good luck to Grimsley; I think you guys will beat Ragsdale.

  • Bison Pride said,

    HPC looked real good in a their scrimmage against Reynolds the defense was penetrating and stopping RJ Reynolds backs for losses in the backfield and the Demons had no answer for the Bison’s offense. Can’t wait for the matchup this friday against the talkative Red Raiders!!

  • Sw fan said,

    Anybody know how southwest guilford did?

  • Spectator said,

    One of Smiths key players broke his fibula yesterday against Andrews not a good look for Smith

  • WildcatAlumni07 said,

    Are there any more scrimmages tonight? (If the weather lightens up)

  • Photos said,

    Are there any pictures from the newbrigdge bank jamboree?

  • NG said,

    Everyone know that this is “NIGHTHAWK COUNTRY”

    We run things!

  • Silent Assassin said,

    @ Bison Pride; I second that!! Those Red Raiders are mighty talkative… They call us out and then get beat. Last year they called us out and didnt even score a offensive touchdown. Now they are saying we aren’t on their level and that we are the laughing stock of High Point. Well, I will agree that we are not on their level b/c we are on a higher level. Enough Said!! They will see Friday Night. Guaranteed!!

  • SWResults said,

    Considering that this was a jamboree and not a real game, the Cowboys looked good. Against Morehead they scored 6 times and only scored on twice. The first Morehead score came after what would have been a three and out. (Jamboree is 10 plays and switch regardless if you score or not). They scored 5 times against McMichael and had one against. The defense is definitely improved over last year. The biggest improvement over last year is the attitude the players have towards competing in practice and an eye for detail and limiting the mistakes.

  • No issues said,

    I don’t see anything wrong with coach Res comments. Granted, not sure a coach should be posting in here about a game or scrimmage however he is excited about he program. Grimsley could use some excitement. None of his comments disparaged anyone from either eam. If he wants to post here and promote his program that is his business as long as he keeps it clean, which he did. For the record we need to consider that the poster may not actually be a coach.

  • Lol said,

    A 3A school saying they “run things” is quite comical

  • kms51 said,

    If the 3a team is the best team in the area, how is that comical. Classification isn’t always the only indicator on things.

  • Stir the Pot said,

    It’s kind of like your favorite Baseball team winning the AAA title, nobody really cares because it’s not the big boys!

  • fball fan said,

    im not a northern fan but @kms51 has a point and to add to it, I believe northern beat page,dudley,nw,etc last year..

  • Pictures said,

    Anybody know where the photos can be looked at?

  • HS FB FAN said,

    LOL, THERE’S SOME 3A SCHOOLS IN THE STATE THAT COULD VERY WELL BEAT OUR BEST GUILFORD COUNTY SCHOOL REGARDLESS OF CLASSIFICATION, AND SOME 2A SCHOOLS THAT WOULD GIVE THEM A RUN FOR THE MONEY.
    IF YOU KNOW YOUR FOOTBALL, YOU COULD GO BACK A FEW YEARS AND THOMASVILLE WOULD HAVE BEAT ANYONE OF THEM AND IF IM NOT MISTAKEN THEY WERE 2A.

  • regap said,

    HS FB FAN,

    last I recall, a few years ago.. Page was the best team in the state en route to a 15-0 4AA State Championship with national rankings on numerous polls. If you were a HS FB FAN, like you say, you would know that Thomasville was 1A at one point and they haven’t won much since 2008. Ever since they got to 2A they have struggled.

  • HS FB FAN said,

    REGAP
    I WASN’T TAKING A SHOT AT PAGE. I RESPECT WHAT ANY OF OUR COUNTY SCHOOLS HAVE DONE IN THE PAST.
    I WAS JUST MAKING A STATEMENT TO LOL THAT CLASSIFICATIONS DON’T ALWAYS MEAN THE BIGGER SCHOOLS ARE THE BEST.
    HIGH POINT ANDREWS AND CENTRAL REMEMBER SOME OF THE 1A THOMASVILLE TEAMS.
    IF YOU GO BACK TO THE 60′S AND 70′S GREENSBORO SMITH DOMINATED GUILFORD COUNTY AND PAGE AND GRIMSLEY WASN’T TO GOOD

  • Puh..lease.... said,

    FB Fan what are you talking about, Andrews and Central remember 1a Thomaville? Really?

    What Andrews and Central remember is Thomasville beating up on the schools of the blind and then coming to High Point and getting smacked around every year, until they decided to take both schools off of their schedule for about 25 years. They recently renewed the series and after two beat downs promptly dropped Andrews, and when they see what Central will have for them this year I’m sure they will be the next to go.

    Beyond that I agree with waht you said some smaller classifiaction team beats up on a bigger classification team every year. Now can they do that on a consistant basis is the question..

    With that said Page and Dudley don’t have a monopoly on Guilfor County football, numerous teams have had their time in the sun when they were the dominant program around here, right now until proven otherwise Northern guilford is the big dog now can they keep that success going after the Logan era remains to be seen. Teams like Page, Andrews, Central, Dudley have been having success for decades and will have something to say about “who runs this”.

  • regap said,

    no hard feelings, I see where youre coming from.. hs fb fan

  • until said,

    Northern needs to win consistently at the highest level before they are a top dog around anywhere. OR they need to beat the complete snot out of ppl to be able to claim that prize. They BARELY beat a Page team that was down last year.

    hopefully they can move up to 4A next reclassification.

  • @ UNTIL said,

    I don’t know how a team could win more consistently at the highest level than Northern Guilford the last four years! Deep run in the playoffs, then 3 straight State Championships. Give credit where it is due, they have a great program. Will it last? Only time will tell, but it’s looking good so far!!

  • Juss Saying said,

    The last 3 years Northern has been the most dominate 3a/3aa school in the state! Yes there are maybe a few teams in the 4a that could have beat them last year but that isn’t how this thing works! Northern plays 3a ball cause they have about 800 less kids that go to their school than Page, Indy, MC, and Butler. So this argument is about dumb!

  • Fact Is said,

    Maxpreps currently has Northern Guilford ranked higher than any team in North Carolina. That includes 4A & 4AA. Juss Saying

  • HS FB FAN said,

    LOVE THE PASSION GUY’S. IF NCS AND UNC FANS HAD THIS KIND OF PASSION FOR THE GREATEST SPORT ON THE PLANET, THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO KEEP MOST OF OUR BEST PLAYERS IN STATE AND WE COULD RIVAL THE SEC.
    IF I OFFEND ANYBODY, DON’T MEAN TO, JUST TRYING TO MAKE A POINT.
    I LIKE TO SEE ALL OF OUR LOCAL TEAMS DO WELL.

  • Juss Saying said,

    Fact is….Why do you care what a poll says anyway? The people who put that Maxpreps crap together haven’t got a clue the difference between any team in this state. BTW its a preseason poll!!! It’s only based on last year and the reason Northern is so high because they haven’t lost in a couple years!

  • Fact Is said,

    Juss Saying…..So in your mind Alabama’s ranking doesn’t mean anything. Just because they have been good for a few years, that’s why they are ranked #1.

  • NG said,

    Sorry fellas but the “NIGHTHAWKS” have been running things around here. Stop with if we were 4A crap. Also stop with I wish all the teams do well. That is a very stupid statement. There is no such thing as all the teams go undefeated.

  • BisonPride said,

    HPC would love to host the NightHawks and have them finally make an appearance at Simeon Stadium…

    Let’s do this, pick up the phone and make it happen NightHawks!!!

  • Juss Saying said,

    @ Fact is

    Are you really comparing what goes on in D-1 college football and their polls to what goes on in our local High schools? There are companies in the world of College sports that make millions and spend millions of dollars picking apart each team, the players, the coaches, and every other piece of info on each team. In HS these football forums rely on what they hear from mostly the parents.

    Maxpreps doesn’t have a clue about any team in NC. They may go on a forum like this one and see someones name or players colleges may be recruiting and thats it. They don’t have a clue about any teams or any players.

  • Yup said,

    Just another cocky northern fan running their mouth, nothing to see here.

  • Lil Nighthawks said,

    @ Nighthawk

    Enjoy you two games of fame…cause after you guys are done playing Page and NW nobody in Greensboro cares about you! Have fun playing Morehead, Mcmichael, and the rest of those small burlington schools.

  • Hawks Fan said,

    When your teams conference schedule is over and you still want to see a Friday night game, come on over to Spencer Dixon Road the Lil Nighthawks will still be playing!!

  • Lil Nighthawks said,

    That’s ok….I’m not too into JV football. I don’t really care who wins a game in the playoffs between Northern and Asheboro. Or Nothern and some back woods school that shouldn’t be on the field anyway. Then see Northern think they did something by beating said backwoods school 150 – 7! I’ll go to Charlotte and actually watch a real Football game.

  • HS FB FAN said,

    NG, SPEAKING OF STUPID STATEMENT, I SAID I HOPE ALL OF OUR LOCAL TEAMS DO WELL.
    I DIDN’T SAY ALL TEAMS WOULD GO UNDEFEATED.
    PLAYING IN THE CONFERENCES IN GUILFORD COUNTY AND
    MAKING THE PLAY OFF’S, YOU’VE HAD A PRETTY GOOD YEAR.
    YOU NEED TO THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK.

  • Hawks Fan said,

    Maybe when your in Charlotte you can watch the team Northern beat the worst Charlotte Catholic. By the way that was in the Championship game. LOL

  • Lil Nighthawks said,

    Again Hawks….3A Football! Whats the point of Winning a championship there in 3AA? It’s the easiest class in all of HS Football. You win it there you might as well go into a garage with a few of your buddies and just proclaim someone champion. That’s basically what happened last year!

  • regap said,

    What is this dude talking about???

    “I don’t know how a team could win more consistently at the highest level than Northern Guilford the last four years! Deep run in the playoffs, then 3 straight State Championships. Give credit where it is due, they have a great program. Will it last? Only time will tell, but it’s looking good so far!!”

    Are you totally oblivious of Charlotte Independence winning 7 4AA state titles in a row and at having the longest winning streak in state history at 109 games??

    NG is not at the highest level. Teams like Butler and Mallard Creek, Richmond, even smaller 4A schools like New Bern and Scotland would overpower NG. Page beat NG 35-14 in 2011, and then went on to beat MC and Butler in the playoffs by 21 each. get off your high cheatahs. The only thing NG dominates is little 3A schools. Charlotte Catholic moved up to 4A, you should follow suite and play with the big boys. Maybe some day.

  • HA! said,

    Regap,

    Page is a one hit wonder….Stop living in the 80′s man!

  • regap said,

    How can a school be a “one” hit wonder, when they have won 5 state titles over different decades? get outta here with your silly contradictions.

    For all we know NG could be a 1 hitter quitter too.

  • 80's Page said,

    HA,

    I played at Page in the 80s and also spent 6 years on Coach Kirby’s staff. I can assure you that Coach Kirby nor his staff ever recruited. The program recruited itself. Coach Kirby built his program the old fashioned way, he earned it by taking some lumps in the 70s and building it over time. He didnt start off by winning State Championships from the jump.

  • John said,

    Any Northern fan accusing another high school of recruiting is the very definition of the pot calling the kettle black.

    Does anyone not remember what happened to the Northern basketball team?

    What will all the big-talking Northern fans say when their football team is forced to vacate their state championships?

  • Prove it said,

    @ John –

    Prove it or shut the &^%& up buddy!

  • It's getting old said,

    I swear there can’t be a conversation about guilford county football without someone bashing Northern in the process. Come on fellas, they’re a strong program with a lot of potential to continue being successful. Every year you say that they aren’t the real deal because they aren’t 4a and every year they beat 4a teams, you can’t have it both ways. I’m also tired of these recruiting/cheating accusations that are consistently being brought up. If you have real proof and actual facts ( not just a bunch of ignorant gossip) then by all means, do something about it! Stop whining about it like a bunch of teenage girls on an anonymous forum. Good grief.

  • Nighthawk said,

    You guys pull the recruiting card any chance you can get. Give credit where credit is due. Obviously guilford county has tons of new rules about recruiting and where you live. After all, it was basketball not football that recruited and it was years ago. Let go of the past and stop bringing it back up. If you still think we recruit then turn us in to the county. People in this city look for reasons to take shots at northern!!!! Such a shame

  • Wow! said,

    @ It’s getting old

    Tell your load mouth Booster club to shut their mouths and quit talking so much when they have had a few too many at the Stokeridge tavern! They like to brag about how they go out and get talent into Northern. You guys at Northern really need to watch who you talk to when it comes to getting kids enrolled at Northern!

  • haters! said,

    Im not even a northern fan..but its a shame to see all yall hate on the program.yall are supposed to be happy for a county team to have success..And they don’t need to recruit , since they have been good and has good coaching people want to go there now.

  • It's getting old said,

    @Wow! That’s exactly what I mean by ignorant gossip. But hey, if you find the alleged drunken ramblings of middle aged men to be factual then please inform the county! Your complaining about it on this website isn’t going to change anything.

  • Matthew said,

    Just for the record.. Kirby sat in my den with my parents trying to recruit me… and I went to SE Guilford
    Not trying to cause a ruckus, but its true.

  • Are they gone said,

    @ Prove it
    I think Matthew nicely told you to shut the &%& up BUDDY

  • HS Football said,

    “Since they been good and has good coaching people want to go there.”

    If they are not moving into the district they should be made to go to their local High School.

  • regap said,

    But how do you explain the mass recruiting of Gabe King, Keenan Allen, Christian McCain, Maurice Harris, and James Scales? All of these kids went to other guilford county high schools before they went to Northern. And they all transferred around the same time. When Coach O was there. There is also a reason why Coach O resigned or got fired.

  • Come on regap said,

    Gabe King was illegal at Page not Northern. He never played for Northern.

  • regap said,

    He still enrolled at Northern and practiced. He never played, but they still recruited him to go to school there. And thats only 1 kid on the list.

  • FballFan said,

    I’m not a northern guilford fan, but isn’t this exactly what previous posters meant by stuck in the past? All of those guys are long gone. What good is bringing them up now?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Well said above and time to focus on the games that are set to be played THIS WEEK….As players you can still influence those, but as for the past games, going to be to change those results…

    Time to get ready for Friday Football Finals for 2013….
