    I know these guys are my friends and I will most likely be put in the homer Hall of Fame for this thread, but let me tell you about the South Caldwell Spartans Football Program:

    Before this year, never in the 28 year history of the school has football team started 3-0. In the programs history, there were 5 times they won the so-called County championship over Hibriten and West Caldwell. Remember there have been several D-1 football players to come out of West and Hibriten. There was a time that the weight room at South was used more for off season baseball workouts than for football. South Caldwell was the doormat of football in Western North Carolina for decades. It used to be comical how many schools scheduled South for their homecoming year in and year out.

    Welcome to today. With the 21-20 victory at East Burke, South Caldwell is 7-0 and 2-0 in conference play. They are 4-0 against the county the last 2 years. People in the community are comming out in numbers to watch these guys compete. More kids are playing football at South that were only one sport athletes in years past and they are making a huge impact.

    You know the best part about it is, they are doing it right. The team is close. The coaches are together more with eachother than their wives and children it seems and are always looking and ploting to pull out that certain play to give their players a chance to win. And even better, they are all good people. They pray for eachother and help eachother. Its what is lacking in the world today. They aren't perfect, but they are really good people.

    How long will this undefeated ride last? Who knows. Will they advance farther this year in the playoffs than last? Its hard to say. But for right now, this has been an amazing time for this school and this program and I think someone should give them the pat on the back they deserve.

    How big is South Caldwell? Will they be 4A or 4AA? Congrats on a great season thus far.

    They have played a pretty good schedule. Hibriten and West Caldwell are of course county rivals for them. The Avery game should have taught them how to defend the pass.

    I did a little homework over at massey ratings, here is what I've found...
    FT Foard, 3A, 1-5
    W. Caldwell, 2A, 3-3
    Hibriten, 2A, 4-3
    Avery Co., 1A, 4-2
    W. Lincoln, 2A, 2-5
    Watauga, 4A, 3-4
    E. Burke, 4A, 2-4

    I agree that Freedom will be the first real test for this Spartan team....and I dont see a cupcake on their schedule from here on out. But I'll show them some love for a 7-0 record, I too remember how bad S. Caldwell football used to be. This is quite a turn around and I'll be sure to follow their progress. Good luck!

    South has a classy coach, classy players... thus a classy program.

    Good luck the rest of the year.

    Last week everyone was saying East Burke would be SC's first real test. Before that it was Avery who was going to expose their secondary and beat them. And before that everyone said Hibriten would have too much speed for SC. Well with all that said South is 7-0. Are they the best team in the state? NO! Are they a pretty good team this year? YES! They have a shot at a conference title this year but still have to play the two top teams in the conference in Freedom and Reynolds. They beat Reynolds last year so they know now it is possible and by all rights should have beat Freedom. I know it is hard to believe but SC is pretty good but won't get the credit they deserve unless they go undefeated and win the state championship which is doubtful.

    AC should not even begin to talk about the schedule another team has played.

    AC has played

    North Iredell 3A 6-1, 1-1 L
    St. Stephens 3A 0-7, 0-4 W Did not win a game last year
    Moorseville 3A 3-4, 2-0 W
    North Wilkes 2A 1-6, 0-2 W Did not win a game last year
    McDowell 4A 2-4, 0-1 W Won only once last season
    AC Reynolds 4A 5-2, 2-0 L
    East Burke 4A 2-4, 0-2 ???
    The Cougars have by all accounts played A POOR non-conference schedule. One can simply see that the Cougars cannot beat a team with a winning record.
