Supporting Youth Sports

May 28, 2007

I have often voiced my opinion about the lack of community support for youth sports in our area, and I have learned that many people express those same concerns. As a result, I have decided to do something about it...

Many of you know that I host my own web site/blog,, that focuses on the general sports world (not just prep sports). We are  going through major renovations and one of our new features is a youth sports section.

The NC Sports Report Youth Sports Center is a place where youth coaches and directors can publicize themselves for FREE! We allow coaches to submit articles about their competitions, and we also allow organizations to use our classifieds section for FREE to get word out about registrations and tryouts. This service isn't restricted to the WRAL viewing area either; NC Sports Report is open to all of North Carolina.

If you are interested in learning more about the NCSR Youth Sports Center, please contact me at

Southern Names New Football Coach

May 26, 2007

WRAL learned Friday morning that Southern Durham Principal Rodriguez Teal was planning on announcing a new football coach Friday. A message was left informing us of the decision, but the message did not say who the new coach would be, and our phone call to the Athletic's office was not returned.

The naming of a new  football coach confirms the report we first brought you on May 16th that Jeff Parker had resigned. This is the first time we have heard from the school itself, so we can now officially say Coach Parker will not be back at Southern next year.

The spotlight now is focused on Athletic Director Darrian Harris because rumors surfaced at the beginning of the month that he would be leaving Southern to become the head football coach at East Chapel Hill. There has not been any confirmation on this story by either party.

Stay with for prep sports coverage you can count on.

Southern Durham May Have Lost Coach

May 16, 2007

WRAL has been told by numerous sources that Southern Durham head football coach Jeff Parker has apparently resigned.

So far we have not been able to confirm this with the school or with Parker.

This story broke early this afternoon, but because we felt we needed to check out some of the sources, we did not publish the story immediately. The same source that made us aware of the expected East Chapel Hill hire informed us about rumors this morning concerning Coach Parker. Upon further investigation, here is what we have learned:

According to more than one source, Parker resigned as the football coach yesterday afternoon or evening. Although none of our sources could tell us why he would resign, at least one speculated that he may be leaving the area. Parker was well-liked among the Southern population, taking his team to the third round of the state tournament last season.

This is just one piece to a puzzle that has become very complicated over
