Grimsley 44 – Northwest Guilford 20

Next year’s Whirlies squad got a good bit of playing time last night in their postponed Monday night game.  To his credit, Coach Shuping is more interested in developing his team than posting grotesquely lopsided wins.  But I doubt it was all about altruism.

The last regular game of the season is only four nights away against a respectable East Forsyth team.  By giving most of the starting o and d lines a breather in the second half and letting everybody and his half-back-brother a chance to run the ball should go a long way to keep the starting line-ups fresh for what is to come.  The N&R’s Jeff Carlton reports that a total of ten Whirlies ran the ball last night for a total of 351 yards.  They even played three deep in the quarterback position.

Because it was the last home game of the season, last night was “Senior Night”.  Jinni and I, with hulking Jackson between us, walked down the fifty yard line to be introduced to the crowd along with all of the other senior parents.  Proud, we were.  (Pictures later)
