    He's in the top six or seven for next year, but I see that we're already in it for the current #1 QB out of GA.

    Could that game be referred to as the "Zero Defense Bowl"?

    I wonder if both teams agreed to put ten players on the field when the other team had the ball.

    The biggest no doubt was Davidson Day 6-foot-3, 192-pound junior quarterback Will Grier, who completed 35 of 42 for a national record 837 yards. It was originally reported he threw for 774 but after an exhaustive review of tape Saturday morning it was revealed he went for 63 yards more.

    Don't get too excited. I put up over 500 yards in a flag game during intramurals and I played OL in high school.

    I sometimes think what could have been................

    The level of competition here is more like high schoolers playing against JV. Not saying the kid doesn't have talent, but this is really slim competition here.

    Bushmaster...
    Yea, I know how you feel. I loved playing quarterback over at Norman's Field on a Saturday afternoon. Back in the early 80's, one could get on Florida Field and actually play some tag football.
    Since my junior high days, I could truly pass the ball with a tight spiral.
    I was the "Larry Ochab" of the day.
    13 was my favorite number.

    I was left-handed and I was 6'5" and I could throw all the passes.
    The bomb... the intermediates... the down and outs... the fades, the timing patterns, etc.
    Actually could throw a bomb 70 yards. I could get on the 20 and toss it to the other side of Florida Field at the 10 yard line. I was so big and had such long arms I could wing it. And I actually was taught by a former Gator who played for Spurrier to pass it the way Spurrier would throw it.
    Don't sling it... keep the ball high, next to your ear, flip your wrist and let your pinky finger be the last finger leaving the ball. Tight spiral. Loved it.

    Problem was:
    NO COLLEGES looked to me as a quarterback.
    My 40 time was not real fast (4.8)... and I was 245 lbs as a senior coming out of Tampa Plant. NO colleges in the land would look at a quarterback that big.
    They wanted me as a left-sided offensive tackle (left-handed).

    Little did I know that I would wind up screwing up my shoulder later on in life.
    I just had left rotator cuff surgery two years ago...because I wore out the cuff in my late teens and early twenties.
    The shoulder surgeon told me that rotator cuff surgery is often referred to as, "The Old Man's Condition"... or..."The Geezer Disease."

    And it is ALWAYS comes about because of what we did to our shoulders earlier in life.
    Bummer!

    I know Guys... Glory Days... I will grab my walker and leave now...

    If that NC coach gets hired by Tennessee, you can add Tenn and minus NC.

    I feel ya pain Leezard. I was the biggest guy on my HS football team at a stout 6'3 220 lbs. Guess where coach wanted me to play despite being the best passer on the team??

    Right Tackle.

    I gave up football before my college career really got started. Glad I did. After reading your posts in this and another thread, I can only imagine how much worse my shoulder would hurt now if I had played. Troy State and Maryville. I could have been a contender!!


    Not.

    Pretty much. The talent level on the field is pitiful. Harrells, NC is so small they have 1 stop sign. 1. A stop sign.

    Look at the stands. Empty in sections. Not spots. SECTIONS!! I have been thru Harrells many times and am familiar with the school.

    while the talent level sucks I still want Grier. I dont put much into high school stats I just look at ability. Will Grier can throw the football he is also an athletic kid.

    And he may be a good one. I would rather take a kid that dominates inferior opponents than one who struggles against inferior opponents.

    A lot of kids threw for the coaches this summer and Will Grier was the 2014 QB the coaches tabbed as their number 1 choice. It seems like a real close race between Florida and UNC I would hate to lose Marquez North and Will Grier to UNC

    I'm still not sure I follow. Are you saying both teams are bad? That still doesn't explain what happened.
