    I understand that is your perspective.

    Only time will tell.

    Bulldawg if you go long enough back Enloe can be considered a consistent program. If anything, SER shows that they are anything but consistent as they were great for numerous years and now not they have been pretty so so. If anything their program has shown a consistent drop but their program is pretty much the model of an inconsistency not to mention the revolving door HC position. I understand that you are one or more of the following student/former player/player/parent/fan of SER but it doesn't change the fact that the program after a string of strong seasons, they have been on a steady decline. What makes you think this trend will end?
    I fully expect Clayton to be OK. Not great but OK.
    I do not see much talent coming up from SER JV and last years varsity team was far from big time. Will SER be mediocre as Clayton? Maybe, but I can easily see them taking another step down as the trend has shown.

    Waggle I agree....I've only been following the GNRC for the last 4 years, previously this has only been a 2 horse race going into the season, Garner and who ever had the best chance to challenge them, but 2015 looks like 4-5 teams can pull out the Conference championship

    You still gotta put the Knights in the convo...
    For the simple fact...To be the man you gotta beat the man...LOL...and right now the GNRC champions are the Knightdale Knights

    Garner will be a good team this year. Garner wins a lot games because they are well coached and make few mistakes. Clayton, SER, and Garner will be going after the top spot this year. There will be some good football this year in the GNRC.

    They are BOTH capable of beating garner. You do not have to be Britt or MC to be competitive with the Trojans. Will they beat them? Maybe a different story. If EW can slip up on them, then just about every team in gnrc is capable.

    Are we really talking about Clayton and SER? Both irrelevant in the GNRC! If you can't beat Garner...then no need to post!

    LMFAO

    How can you talk about consistency and neglect the past? Regardless, your response is about what I was expecting.

    How far back do you go in order to determine if a team is consistent or not? 2, 3 years?

    2005 has very little to do with today. If 2005 mattered we'd be talking about a lot of different teams.

    LOL. My panties don't get in a bunch over people's opinions. I was just curious to know your thought process behind it, that's all. Clayton lost to Southeast Raleigh last season and finished behind Southeast Raleigh in conference standings. Also, Clayton has had a losing season within the last 4 years (5-7 in 2011).

    In my opinion, Clayton has been an inconsistent program over the past few years. If you look at their season records, they have been up and down. Losing seasons from 2006-2009; and, 2011. I guess I was just wondering what your definition of consistent is. Including the past two seasons, I would argue that Southeast has been more consistent than Clayton regarding on-field performance and conference standings.

    Factually speaking, since 2005 Clayton has only finished above Southeast Raleigh in conference standings twice.

    Let's see Bulldawgnation... 3rd coach in 4 years. A declining record of 9-3, 6-6 ,4-7 compared to one losing season in four years, a coach basically running the same program as Fowler. Pretty easy to conclude that. It is not 2011 anymore.
    I am not saying that Clayton is going to compete for the Neuse title just it seems like Garner will be Garner, East Wake has been working towards this season for a while and Clayton has been pretty consistently good over the past few years.
    Knightdale lost a ton and has a new staff, SER has been declining and will have a new staff... Don't get your panties in a bunch. It is pretty simple to see.

    E Wake will compete but not sure if they will be in the top 3.. E Wake has been underachieving the last couple of seasons. Is this b/c the admin, coaching, players or a combination of both.. I think Knightdale will surprise some ppl.. They lost 30 seniors but still have some guys returning and a lot of talks of players transferring to Knightdale. SER will be avg but they lost a lot to.. Garner, Clayton, Knightdale, E Wake, SER, West Johnston, HC and Rolesville.. This will be a great season in the GNRC, its wide open this YEAR!

  • trianglelawns May 20, 2014

    I say E wake makes the playoffs. I have no clue where all of this SER talk is coming from...they always have athletes, hope the new coach can get them going in the right direction. Clayton will be consistent. Garner will be the team to beat. They have steady coaching staff and community support. Hard to beat!

    Rhem placed fourth in the State for the Discus? If that is correct, he is one strong young man!

    East Wake is a team that is on the rise and showed flashes of great play last year. If they learn to believe in their abilities and don't fall prey to teams like South Granville last year. SG was a really good 2A team, but they were 2A. They took that loss and rolled it into another. Don't lose the same game twice and you are on the rise.

  • waggle right May 18, 2014

    I kinda like SER and Clayton battling for the top spot. If those teams stay healthy they will give Garner a fit. EW and WJ will fill out the top five.

  • oldtimecoach May 18, 2014

    I think you always start this league with Garner. I'm hearing Clayton will be a threat and that East Wake and West Johnston are improved.

  • slingshot5903 May 18, 2014

    That's so true but I thank west may be a sleeper one of the oldest teams returning and coach Williams will have the boys ready to compete and win this year there a 1 to 3rd place team this year

    does it really matter considering nobody can beat scotland in this conference? or as far as garner they cant beat anyone from charlotte lol

    What are your thoughts on how Clayton is a consistent program and SER isn't'? How is Clayton's record different than SER that would lead you to conclude that?

  • FleaFlicker May 18, 2014

    Garner To be the man you have to beat the man.
    East Wake They did beat the man last season... Time to ride that bull of a rb.
    Clayton consistent program
    Up in the air for the rest.

  • dbcity2004 May 17, 2014

    Got to roll with the Garner Trojans. I am hearing a lot of good things about SER though the Bulldogs may be on their way back. One things for sure they will definitely have some athletes.

    The top will be Garner. The rest are playing for second.

  • capitalwildcat66 May 17, 2014

    Aggie Pride....sounds about right..LOL...this year looks to be wide open.

    Still gotta say Garner is the Favorite, followed by East Wake they have some good talent and experience plus Demontay Rhem (the second best back in GNRC) should be lights out this year, then Knightdale yes we lost ALOT but I think we have a half decent chance to compete for conference, followed by SER and Clayton,

    with all that said I still wouldn't be surprised if SER and Clayton found themselves in the top three spots at seasons end...

  • GNRC Fan May 16, 2014

    SER, Garner,East Wake, Clayton, West Johnston, Knightdale, Harnett Central, Rolesville

    I agree with you bulldawg nation

    I think Knightdale will be down this year and I think Clayton, East Wake, West Johnston and Southeast Raleigh will be greatly improved.

    I think the top half of the conference will be (in no specific order): Southeast Raleigh, Garner, West Johnston and East Wake.

  • slingshot5903 May 16, 2014

    Garner and Clayton
