East Carolina wins over Old Dominion, 52-38…..

Kevin Walton(Grimsley) with 1 tackle and 11 assists for Appalachian State out in Montana last night…..

Winston Craig from Ragsdale also picked off a pass for Richmond late in the the VMI game and the Ragsdale kids were leading the Spiders’ defense……

Walt Sparks(Ragsdale HS) had a big first half interception in the Richmond-VMI game this evening. Richmond wins the game 34-0. Winston Craig(Ragsdale) played meaningful first half minutes for the Richmond Spiders and was probably at nose guard/tackle….Next week looms big for Richmond under head coach Danny Rocco, as they prepare to face the Wolfpack of N.C. State…

Tyler Ritter(Ragsdale) is still at Hampden-Sydney along with Billy Stone(Ragsdale). Ritter is starting at left guard and Stone is inside linebacker….Hampden-Sydney is located near Farmville, Virginia and was thinking back this afternoon when I was on my Saturday running workout to this night back in 1976, something like 37 years ago, when I was playing against the Hampden-Sydney Tigers in a football game…The called it the ‘Old Tobacco Belt Bowl’ and we played it at George Washington High School, in Danville, Virginia…Was playing for what is now Liberty University, back in the day and Hampden-Sydney was coached by the legendary Stokley Fulton…..All back in the day, but still ready to play today….

Luke Sonricker(Ragsdale) was playing for UNCC today, when the 49ers topped Campbell, 52-7…..

    Does connection have any info on others from RHS…like Larry O, also with UNCC, and Nykowlo…and many others? Great crowd at UNCC historical event

  • rumor said,

    Larry started for uncc on D-line. Kid has worked his butt off in the weightroom. Projected to do.well. Brian Nokowlo was at the Ragsdale game Friday instead of with Furman. Leads me to believe he may be redshirted. I understand Sonricker got in the game at Charlotte. Both Sparks and Craig had picks at Richmond game.

  • tigers said,

    how cool that two of our ragsdale tigers got in the very first game at uncc. way to go larry and luke.

  • Question said,

    How did other area players do in college this week?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Tony Washington(High Point Andrews) had a very good game on kickoff returns for Appalachian State at Montana and also garnered some receiving yards for the Mountaineers….

    Checked on DJ Reader(Grimsley) at Clemson and did not see his name in the stats from the Georgia game..

    Saw no Rocco Scarfone on the stats page for East Carolina, but did see Jonathan White(High Point Central) with one tackle assist for ECU……

    Others will have to come, as others send them in….

    Several colleges don’t get going until this week….
