Mecklenburg County schools sucked it up for years as Richmond County,Page and Northern Durham drilled us yearly and I don't recall schools here doing anything except trying to get better- Coach Tommy Knotts finally broke through the RC Raiders barricade with a sophomore heavy laden team somewhere around 2000 and this really kicked all our Meck Cty schools here into trying to keep up- East Forsyth is an excellent program and as they and others improve NC quality will rival that of other power prep statesB&G great post and as a Forsyth Co guy (Carver) its not in our heads but its just reality. The best team out of Meck Co traditionally tends to be the one with the bullseye on their backs. And to be the man you must beat the man!! Thats reality and it isnt made up in our heads. My only concern is that when a Forsyth Co school is mentioned on these boards as a title contender they tend to get dismissed hard by the Meck Co contingent that patrols these boards. And a lot of their ribbing is good natured and based off past results so we have to suck it up until someone breaks through. But when, not if, it occurs you can bet the Forsyth folks will come down hard!! And I believe its closer to happening than a lot of Meck Co folks are willing to admit. And yea I know close doesn't count. Good luck Saturday and I personally wish MC the best and I hope they win it all. I like dynasties cause they raise the bar for all!!!
