  • NWGHS fan said,

    Check out:

    Hunter Morgan (NG) – Wingate
    Shoemaker brothers (NWG)-Lenoir Rhyne
    Kevin Westlake (Page) – Louisburg JC

    As you know, Andy, there are many others playing at the college level from this area. I believe the 3 above are having pretty good seasons.

  • Andy Durham said,

    I do appreciate the reminder and I thought of Randy Norris from over at WSSU while I was driving down the road….I saw Hunter Morgan from NG at a ball game out at Northern last year, and has always been a strong talent from this area…..Westlake led Page on that late-season charge a few years back and is one of the top pitchers to ever come out of Page HS…

    The Shoemakers work as hard as anybody around and I don’t know how they do it, since they have two jobs…They are baseball players and they are also Shoe-makers and you all of that keeps them busy…

    Going to look these young men up and add them to the list and just to mention some eye-openers we have seen already here today, I had no idea that Zach McLean and Ryne Stanley were over at N.C. A&T…That really got my attention this morning and that is what these charts are all about, find ’em and list ’em…

    Thanks for the names and we will check out their games(Stats)….

  • Falconsmom said,

    Justin Guy(SE) doing great at Wingate.

  • HPC11 said,

    Andy,

    Have 3 local kids playing in the CAA as well..

  • John Barrow said,

    Colin Lipke- William & Mary (Ragsdale/GTCC)
    Ryan Caveness- UNCG (S Guilford/GTCC)
    Chris Kernen- NC Central (NW Guilford/GTCC)
    Zach Michalski- NC Central (Wesleyan/GTCC)
    Matt Orth- Limestone (SW Guilford/GTCC)
    Dillon Cox- Greensboro College (NW Guilford/GTCC)

  • Andy Durham said,

    We must be talking the Colonial Athletic Association with the CAA and that should take us to Elon and we will look them up, any other school in the CAA other than Elon with players from our area…

    Just got a text in and we are also now tracking Ellis Stokes, from Dudley High School, at Wake Tech…

    All toll, we may have upwards of 50 young men out there on the college baseball fields from our areas..

    I wish the college coaches would do a better job of getting this info out here, but they are busy with the coaching and maybe the fault lies at the feet of the local SID’s….

    This is a good project for us and if nobody else is willing to tackle it, we will stay/stick with it…

    Continue to send the names our way on through today and into tonight….

    I still say you need to promote those locals, because that is who the locals come to see play….

    The Sheets young man from the Winston-Salem Dash that played at Wake Forest is a prime example…Played local college ball and the area fans know who he is and the connect with him when they go see the Dash play and the same can be said for all of the locals that play for the HiToms each Summer….

    I always say, “Start Local and Stay Local” and I came up with that motto/slogan many years ago….

  • John Barrow said,

    Tanner Routh (Randleman) is having a great year for GTCC as well… will probably have his name called In the June Draft!

  • Andy Durham said,

    We ended up finding 5 CAA guys with local ties and we hit the jackpot with them when checked in at UNC-Wilmington…Found a local young man at Elon too…

    Thank-you Coach Barrow for sending us the info on your guys with the GTCC Titans….I was going to put out a request for you to send us a list and you did and your list should put us over 50 names and if you have any of your current GTCC names and numbers fork them over our way….I had been hearing some things about Matt Orth….The used to call him Big Mo, I think it was over at SWG….

  • SWG said,

    What about Blendinger at UNC?

  • Andy Durham said,

    Blendinder now on our list….2 2/3’s Innings at UNC with 0 runs/0 hits and ERA at 0.00…2 BB’s/3 K’s…

    Sometimes 2 2/3’s Innings is a lot of innings at UNC…

  • Triad BBall said,

    Andy, You do a wonderful job covering HS sports in the Triad! This list just illustrates the talent level in this area. I still believe local talent here is and has been overlooked..

    Thanks again for being a advocate for these athletes…

  • Andy Durham said,

    I’ll have to say, this has been a fun list…Neat to see what all of these young men are up to these days….

  • J.D. Springer said,

    Also, Josh Pike (Northern Guilford) with 1/3 of an inning pitched for N.C. State. Heard the Pack is redshirting Cam Cotter and UNC Charlotte is redshirting J.C. Ouzts from that state title-winning Nighthawks pitching staff. Joe Milwee from Northern is playing at Pitt Community College.

  • Andy Durham said,

    That’s what we thought might be the case for Ouzts at Charlotte and had not heard anything out of Cotter, but that explains his status..Good for Pike to get some time with the Pack and we will check on Milwee….

    Thanks for the update on the Northern Guilford Nighthawks, Class of 2017 and NCHSAA State 3-A Champs for 2017….

  • Andy Durham said,

    Pike and Milwee updates now available and we roll on as the Roll Call keeps rolling in…..

  • NE said,

    Brody Holleman-NE- Guilford College
    Tanner Hobbs-NE-Guilford College

  • Andy Durham said,

    We have the updates on Guilford College kids…

    AD

  • NWGHS fan said,

    Some other NW guys playing:

    Cole Aker – University of Tampa
    Christian Dix – William Peace University
    Cameron Whitsen & Hunter Malone – Greensboro College
    Jesse Juday – UNC Asheville
