Cade Carney and Kennedy McCoy are extra special. If you get an opportunity next season you should definitely check them out if you live in the Winston Salem area. Those two guys are men among kids on the field.12/08/2014 at 10:40 PM #64854
McKoy is the real deal. State is in a good position with him.12/09/2014 at 1:54 AM #64865Alpha WolfKeymaster
What kind of QB is Parham — pocket or running?12/09/2014 at 2:50 AM #64867
hmmm… a “Gee from Burlington” …
Mr. Stick wasn’t there one of those in your first class at State ??#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/09/2014 at 12:15 PM #64906JackWolfKeymaster
Parham is more of a pocket QB that can run. He’s a very good athlete but also very raw at the QB position.12/09/2014 at 12:51 PM #64908Whiteshoes67Participant
A little off topic, but we need to get in early on Cam Harris from Northern Guilford. A soph who’s never played QB before, and didn’t really want to initially, he’s returned Northern to yet another state championship game. Kenan Allen’s cousin, he can flat out play. Has an arm and can run the spread.12/09/2014 at 2:07 PM #64912coach13Participant
Speaking of commits, don’t be surprised if you see a local 2015 4* FSU commit to flip to the pack…12/09/2014 at 2:53 PM #64917
Johnny Frasier could potentially flip. Alabama visited him today but State and Duke are the schools to watch if he does flip.12/09/2014 at 5:31 PM #64921BBQ SauceParticipant
Am I that old? I was in school when Mike Gee played. Welcome to the family Little Gee.12/09/2014 at 6:09 PM #64922MikeParticipant
Mike Gee was a friend of mine during school – have lost touch through the years except I know he is still in the Burlington area. I hope Harrison is his son because the Gee’s are good people (and Mike was a tough OL)12/10/2014 at 9:41 AM #64954packalum44Participant
If DD can have at least one break-out season, ala Louisville or GA Tech, I believe we can reach a tipping point where the majority of top talent stick around. If Amato wasn’t such an awful coach and had better inroads in NC (as opposed to sloppy seconds in Florida) he could have got us there.
The talent in NC is deep and only trails, FL, GA, Texas and CA…all of which have a higher population. Keep in mind athletic talent is normally distributed trait – at least among certain demographics. We have the proper demographics to be a perennial top 25 team if we just keep the damn guys home.12/10/2014 at 10:08 AM #64957
BBQSauce && Mike…
iirc…. there was a kid whose played football at Williams about the same time as Jim Donnan…(mid ’60s)
is so he would be the Granddaddy…#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/10/2014 at 11:59 AM #64960MikeParticipant
Yes Bill, not sure about the granddaddy but when you mentioned Gee playing with Cowdog I knew it either had to be the granddad or Cowdog is not as old as I thought (no offense CD). I was there 85-89 and I think Mike Gee was 87-91 or so. I know I was slightly older. Either way, a long line from Williams named Gee.12/10/2014 at 12:13 PM #64962
^Mike… the first “Gee” played at Williams about the same time as Jim Donnan… 61-62-63-64…
and he would be about Mr. HighStick’s age…
… for some totally unknown reason… I want to think his first name was ‘Bill’….
Mr. Dog and I are about 10 years younger… NCS class of 76…
Mike Nall from Cummings played with Mr. Dog…
Mr. HighStick is an OLD man…#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/12/2014 at 9:15 PM #65199
I might be getting old, but I am still a catankerous ol SOB, Bill. Got your email about Gee and I am digging back through a couple of old Agromeks when they still had pictures of every student and team pictures. Donnan’s bro in law was the School Board Superintendant when I lived in Florence SC and he was a cient and in Rotary with me. If I can’t find in a old Agromek, I may be able to call him because he was from Burlington too.Actally a guy who lived next to me in Riddick was a wrestler from Burlington. Name does not ring a bell, but could be because I have known several Gee’s. And Yes Cowdog is just a “youngun'”.

I was class of 72, but a freshman in 63.I played a little Army from 66-70 before coming back to finish.
"Whomp 'em, Up, Side the Head"!12/12/2014 at 9:43 PM #65201
There was a Bill Gee from Burlington that played tackle for Elon in the mid 60’s. Maybe he is the one you’re thinking about..

^thank you…. Old Man Stick… that’s the guy…
… some of those notes in my “miscellaneous useless sports trivia” files now look like the Dead Sea Scrolls… so sometimes I’m matching up half an answer with half a question…
… if you feeling cantankerous… try a big bowl of salad greens cooked with fatback and little red pepper and cornbread..at your age that should smooth things right out for you…
… and it’s hard for the pups here to know whether you’re bragging or complaining… either way.. you ain’t the only brother in the house that took eight years to m-a-t-r-i-c-u-l-a-t-e …#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/13/2014 at 5:14 AM #65206
I get cantankerous with liberals and RINO’s, and “regularity” isn’t a problem, I think I am going to retire again for real after Christmas, play more golf, shoot more Bambies, and start training a couple of grandkids to hit a baseball.
Cool thing about being “away” frim the summer of 65 until the fall of 70 was State grew up from a small school to a large university with women.
I always say I was Class of 72, but I was really in the Class of 72 1/2 graduating in December.
"Whomp 'em, Up, Side the Head"!12/13/2014 at 5:23 AM #65207
One of my high school teammates probably played with Gee at Elon. He played fullback and punted. Freshman in 64.
