    It's no secret...football is king in the Southeast. Afterall, it's (GA) SEC Country & the SEC is the king of college football & second to none. There is talent in NC but our state is known for hoops. Is what it is!

    GO TROJANS!

    List from 2012 Georgia had well over 100 more recruits with less players than North Carolina. http://highschool.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1328639

    Read the article below. Georgia has less players who play football but earned almost 100 scholarships more than North Carolina. http://highschool.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1182411

    schiess - thanks for your support of Leesville...your posts are always well thought out and reasonable...

    Scotsfan - SC and RC's situations are the exception, not the rule in NC...I went to the Southern Durham - Britt game this year and Britt had more fans in the seats than SD - you bring in a big time opponent you should have big time support...not singling out SD just siting as an example of a program with a proud tradition that should have better support, IMO...from what I understand some Fayetteville schools have the same problem

    Most states have their steady powerhouse teams and then there is the rest of the regular quality teams.it will always be that way.this state has outstanding highschool football and they don't choose or look to be on a national platform like a don Bosco or mission hills California team.those schools also have very deep pockets,big alum and strive to be top national program for highschool . With that said its totally fine and I would not judge either nc schools or these other powerhouse programs.bottom line is you have to work with what you have and that is not a bad thing.

    Down in these parts of nc, we have big stadiums, big booster clubs, big crowds and dress 75+ kids. Don't judge the following of the big nc cities with the following of rural Georgia. See we sell reserved seating season tickets down here at $11 per game. (sell about 1,0000 of these in addition to the average 5,000+ attendance with 12,000+ for the big games). Urban NC can't get the following to do that. All nc football is not equal with regards to facilities and following.

    Different states have different levels of passion for their sports...having moved down here from Pennsylvania 23 years ago I was surprised at the lack of enthusiasm not just in the Raleigh area, but statewide (fan bases in particular)for their football teams, in Pa. you could hardly get a seat for some regular season games...this week some Pa. teams who are in the playoffs are involved in traditional Thanksgiving day games...that's 2 games in 3 days for those counting...I doubt crowds will be lacking for either...but comparing football state to state is not really relevant to what is going on in NC...the competition is getting better and the fans are starting to catch on in places that don't have an established tradition of a winning program...as for Georgia HS football - WHO CARES?...

    I don't think anyone will argue that other states have a bigger high school football following, but that has nothing to do with the level of talent in a particular state, which is what this post was originally about.

    Unless you've had the chance to play or see the teams in georgia most of you won't understand. Go down to south georgia where all they live for is high school football its totally different. Go to valdosta ,tift co,or maybe even worth co, football is number one. There fans will fill the visitors stands and then you throw in the band and you have standing room only.

    I grew up in Atlanta and playeda little high school football and was also a high school coach's kid. I am a Georgia Tech grad and am home for football weekends two or three times a year and always catch high school games there. I've lived in NC all my adult life and love our local football. North Carolina has great players, teams, amd coaches. High school football here is very good.

    In Georgia, there is a greater investment in football than you will see in North Carolina. Stadiums are huge. Attendance is great. Coaches are well paid. Booster clubs are strong. They have Spring football. Local school buses are used to transport the teams, bands, cheerleaders to every game. A large school in Georgia will dress 90 on the varsity, have 200 in the band, and with cheerleaders, dance team, etc. buses may carry 400 students who are participating to away games. That level of participation brings a lot of parents through the gate. That's the difference between NC and Ga.

    I watched Garner/Wakefield week before last and North Gwinnett/Johns Creek last week. Believe me, the players and caoches at Garner and Wakefield are every bit as good as those in Georgia. The difference is in the size of the squad and the bands, the willingness to invest county dollars in the athletes and bands, and the size of the stadiums and crowds.

    All i can tell you is that the schools in georgia seem to have a better following from the boaster clubs. But if you look georgia seems to have schools ranked nationally more often then NC.

    Agree ship. Plenty of talent in NC. Ship the Culiver kid that plays corner for the 49ers is from Garner. He gave Brandon Marshall all he could handle last night.

    I have seen some of the best players in NC and GA. and the only different is that the players in GA. get more recognition and take the game more seriously but talent wise there's not that much different plus the coaches in GA. are willing to play more out of state teams than the coaches in NC.

    I had this conversation with others before. Texas, FL, Cali, Georgia, and the tidewater area of VA are considered the high school football talent bed. However I pointed out if that was the case some of these colleges or universities wouldn't struggle. NC has a lot of football talent and a lot of schools have started to realize it

    If this poster's real city is Scotland Neck, then he would know about Tarboro High, Shaun Draughn-Todd Gurley, and etc. He is just stirring up the pot. Mayberry is bigger than Scotland Neck. He is just trolling.

    Now other states do have more people who come to games, bigger stadiums, etc. But that doesn't reflect the level of talent. We have a unique setting here with TONS of colleges, we have professional sports teams, and our largest county has over 20 public high schools. But to say that there isn't talent is crazy talk.

    Pretty sure there are two freshmen from this very area lighting up the SEC right now. A Broughton kicker helped Bama win a national championship. There is a lot of talent from North Carolina in college and professional football, if there wasn't, the SEC wouldn't be raiding the state for players.
