On a new Talking Preps Tuesday:
▪ We’re updating Mr. Football’s watch list for the best player in the state, and there are plenty of new faces.
▪ In Rapid Fire we discuss whether Charlotte Regional Football Stadiums are a good idea, whether Myers Park can reverse its season, and how important Weddington and Chambers’ statement was in last week’s wins. .
▪ Grice presents his “Grice’s Gems”, the NC players of the week: Cutler Adams from Robbinsville, Keenan Jackson from Cuthbertson, Evan Kennedy from West Rowan, Beady Waddell from West Meck and Mason Fortune from Millbrook.
▪ Former CMS coach Matt “Pepman” Morrow stops by to talk about a camp that will give seniors a great recruiting opportunity and the local talk show host will take on Sam on “The Game Show.”
▪ Chelsea sits down with Sanderson QB Drew Taintor, who talks about upsetting Cardinal Gibbons and going out with a bang.
▪ Alex has new state leaderboards and his top 10 games in the state. And Grice is launching a new feature: East and West matches of the week (Leesville Road at Wake Forest and South Point at Stuart Cramer).
▪ We discuss the dominance of parochial schools like Charlotte Catholic and Cardinal Gibbons in NCHSAA sports.
▪ We have four new “Fresh Faces,” the stars of tomorrow: Cuthbertson QB Parker Burke, Covenant Day star Alex Koulovatos, Independence QB Justin Little and Richmond Senior RB Taye Spencer.
▪ Finally, in “Coach vs. Coach,” Grice, Chris and Sam discuss targeting in football, whether HBCUs should get the same guarantees as G5 schools, and whether there’s a way to speed up college games.
