Trojans , Cougars Forecasted
Among Top 2-A Grid Teams
BY JOHNNY CRAK;
West Brunswick and South Brunswick prep football teams are consid
ered among the best in the 2-A ranks, according to at least one North
Carolina high school gridiron prognoslicalor.
Arnold Solomon ol Kannapolis, publisher of North Carolina Prep
Football 1991, has compiled perhaps the state's best and most thorough
preseason high school grid magazine ever.
The publication includes schedules, state records, recruiting news,
preseason predictions, power ratings and complete 1990 results. It is cer
tainly a must for avid prep football fans.
Solomon lists both Trojan and Cougar teams among the lop IX in the
2-A classification. Joining the county pair arc two other Waccamaw
Conference members ? Whitcville and East Bladen.
Those arc lofty predictions for the eight-member Waccamaw
Confcrcncc without even including defending champion South Robeson
and a much-biggcr and much-improved Fairmont team.
Solomon sees Whitcville as the WC favorite followed by East Bladen,
which returns 14 starters, and West Brunswick.
The publisher sees the Trojans as perhaps the most-improved team in
the WC, a league that will be dominated by defense this season.
South Brunswick is forecasted as fourth but could easily finish higher.
Rounding out the league, Solomon predicts Fairmont to finish fifth, West
Columbus sixth. South Robeson seventh and North Brunswick eighth.
Speaking of prep football, today (Thursday) is the official opening of
preseason practice in North Carolina.
Five of the eight Waccamaw Conference teams will get only four full
weeks before kicking off the season on Aug. 30. Three other league mem
bers open die year on Sep. 6.
West Brunswick and North Brunswick both open the season on Aug.
30. The Trojans entertain North Myrtle Beach, S.C. in their opener while
the Scorpions visit Topsail.
South Brunswick opens its season the next week on Sep. 6, hosting
county rival West Brunswick.
Whitcville begins its season on Aug. 30 entertaining defending state 2
A champion Clinton and East Bladen opens its year the same night hosting
Fairmont also begins its season on Aug. 30 at Bladcnboro while both
defending league champion South Robeson and West Columbus kick off
the year on Sep. 6. The Mustangs will travel to Red Springs and the
Vikings will host Clinton in the Dark Horses' second week of Waccamaw
Former County All-Stars
West Brunswick's Ricky Daniels wasn't the first county prep star to
play in the annual North Carolina East- West All-Star Games in Greensboro.
Daniels scored eight points and grabbed a team-leading nine rebounds
to help the East to a 112-110 double-overtime win against the West in the
basketball contest. It was the sixth win in the last eight games for the East
which also leads the series 24-19.
Daniels joins a list of former county greats including North Brunswick
basketball star Chuckic Brown, currently playing for the NBA Cleveland
Cavaliers, who was selected in 1985.
Former South Brunswick multisports star Quinton McCrackcn was
named to the East roster for the 1988 football classic and helped his team to
a 32-3 romp over the West.
Two Shallotle High School stars ? James Vamum and Robert
Galloway ? arc also among the county's East-West All-Star veterans.
Varnum was selected to play in the football game in 1954 (a 41-0 rout by
the West) and Galloway participated in the basketball contest in 1963 (a 60
47 West triumph).
Whiteville Dominates East
Whiteville Post 137 won its third straight eastern North Carolina
American Legion baseball title Monday with a 13-6 win over Pitt County,
thus taking the best-of-scvcn scries in five games.
Monday also marked Whitcvillc's fifth eastern legion title since 1985.
The win upped Post 137's record to an impressive 32-6.
Whiteville will likely face defending state champion Caldwell County
later this week for the North Carolina legion title. Caldwell County led
Kerncrsville 3-1 in another best-of-scvcn scries for the western champi
onship earlier this week.
