    I'm a firm believer, that anyone can win or lose on any given day. There are many variables in a football game, it's if the team can control them all. Specially in high school football, that's a big order.
    You keep asking what others think of who would win in a Middle Creek/ Rocky Mount game. Well Middle Creek won the last two, in both houses.
    I think many are ignoring Middle Creeks new QB that played half the games last season. I think he will do well. He has that extra umph. If you watch his highlights from last year against Fuquay, He bulldozes a defender and then goes into running 20-30 yards afterwards.
    But like I said, any team can win or lose every game they play.

    Rocky Mount loses a ton from last year but they'll have 3 games to get the kinks out before they make the trip to Havelock to face the Rams.

    Havelock loses some pieces but they have some good ones returning and also some kids coming up from JV that will see the field. We'll know quickly what Havelock has as they play West Craven, New Bern, Wallace-Rose Hill and Rose before they take on the Gryphons.

    They'll break more offense and defense records this year, no doubt. Conley will have its hands full week one with the duo from Northeastern, Walker and Freshwater.

    how do you think Rocky Mpunt @ Havelock will play out!!! Rematch of the 3A Eastern Conference Finals from last years playoffs.... see rocky mount winning this again... it would be a huge upset if rocky mount would win....

    DH Conley is just pure offense. I know the coach spent a great amount of time on defense after the season, but offense is their thing. I don't see how they will beat Rocky Mount or Havelock. I've seen better defense in pee wee ball, and that is not an exaggeration

    I heard Rocky Mounta JV was good last year and obviously the Varsity was too. Middle Creeks JV got whipped in that game.

    When Castellano was Coach I was much more informed on what was going on with the team. I'm just an outsider now but I'm still a diehard fan of MC.

    I thought they had a RB coach last year that was supposed to be next in line to be the OC? What happened there?

    It looks like DH Conley and Havelock are preseason ranked above Rocky Mount. It doesn't matter or mean anything other than people are expecting those teams to be good this year. Rocky Mount has a tough schedule. I will make a prediction after RM's first game. Is RM as good as last year?

    Hold up Tyler. LOL We play one of the toughest non conference schedules yearly. Not a lot we can do about conference teams. But we're now in a new conference so we'll see how it shakes up. I'll let your comment slide since you're my bro. :-)

    I was ranking 4A/4AA teams only. I think Rocky Mount will have another successful season and will battle Southern Nash for the conference title. I think Middle Creek will win this game and the score will depend on how well the defenses play. It could be high scoring but being the first game of the season it may be a defensive battle. I expect it to be close and exciting and I'm looking forward to the game. I root for Rocky Mount in their games except when they play Middle Creek. I have great respect for their coaches, players and fans.

    Every game Middle Creek plays will be key games. You can't say that Middle Creek has a cupcake schedule this year.

    I only know of the OC moving on, I'm not aware of anyone else BUT I'm just a fan and not an insider. Coach Ray has been there since the beginning and does a great job with the defense and Coach Ragland was the OC at Middle Creek for several years before he became a Head Coach. Also, Coach Rags is the one who introduced the spread offense at MC. The players are working hard and have the same goals as previous years. I agree that Heritage is a big game for both teams. Rocky Mount is the first game and that's all they need to worry about now. Rocky Mount is always physical and they run run the ball well behind a physical OLine. They also have a lot of team speed. This will be a tough game for MCand I'm interested to see how MC's defense stacks up against a pound the ball team. Sanderson is the only team in my top 5 in the east that Middle Creek doesn't play in the regular season. I think WF is the favorite, after that who knows. WF,MC,Heritage,Sanderson and Garner.

    The middle creek -Heritage game will be a key game for both..

    I don't think it (losing starters) will make too much of a difference. The youngins played a lot last year. Remember Shoffner was even being taken out after the half?
    I think at least half of the easier conference games are gone, those teams going to another conference. I'm just hoping the work ethic continues. The youngins got some experience.

    I think Middle Creek will win in a close one. I love the way Rocky Mount plays Football, fast and physical. I have a lot of respect for their players and coaches. This game will probably go down to the wire and whichever team plays the best defensively will probably win. Am I looking forward to this game? Well the game will be played in 61 days 2 hours and 12 minutes at the time of this post......if that answers the question.

    Middle creek starts off the year with Rocky Mount I believe... both teams have lost a lot of seniors from the past year... Rocky Mount is 0-2 against them in the past two years but ended up going to back-2-back state championships ofcourse in 2015 wining in overtime and losing last year... any thoughts on who might win this years matchup??

  • diddydontplay77 Jun 18, 11:26 a.m.

    They have some excellent receivers, Mitchell, Martin, Rider and always rotate 8 to 10 different ones throughout the game so they have more experience there than you might think. The RB position is solid with three year starter Jones who is an outstanding runner and receiver. The QB is big and throws and runs the ball well. He knows how to run the offense efficiently and gets the ball where it needs to be. When he runs, he is deceptively quick and runs over people. The O line will be the question mark with the starting center returning and a guard who started 3/4ths of the year, everyone else will be new. The D line will be new except for Richardson who should have a big year. The two returning inside LBs are outstanding Cheyunski and Maya and the DB's Martin and Herring should have a big year. I have MC in my preseason WAKE County top 5. Those teams are WF, Heritage, MC, Sanderson, and Garner. Middle Creek will have another successful season.

    How will Middle Creek be this year? Losing 16 starters. 8 on offense and 8 on defense.
