Miles Aldridge hired as football coach at Hough High

Miles Aldridge is the new head football coach at Hough High School.

Aldridge was formerly head coach at Spring Valley High in Columbia, S.C. He coached there for four years and was 12-1 last season, losing to Dutch Fork and former Independence coach Tom Knotts in the playoffs. Aldridge has more than 30 coaching experience in high schools, college and NFL.

Aldridge was a defensive coordinator at South Carolina, Clemson, Arkansas (La.), Lafayette and Middle Tennessee State. He’s been assistant at East Tennessee State, Wichita State, Tulsa, Mississippi, Duke, N.C. State, Central Florida and with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. He’s coached in nine college bowl games and was named S.C. Football Coaches Association prep football coach of the year in 2013.

“We’re really excited about Miles and the experience he brings. We had a fairly young staff and young head coach in coach Collins. To have someone like Miles that brings that kind of experience gets you excited about the future of Hough football can bring.”

Hough was 10-2 last season under Bobby Collins, who resigned after going 25-20 in four seasons. Collins, 19-5 in his final two years, is now head coach at Lancaster High.

Northside Christian's Keyshawn Woods named N.C. Gatorade Player of the Year

From staff reports

CHICAGO (March 21, 2014) — In its 29th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Keyshawn Woods of Northside Christian School as its 2013-14 Gatorade North Carolina Boys Basketball Player of the Year.  Woods, who has signed with the Charlotte 49ers, is the first Gatorade North Carolina Boys Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from Northside Christian.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the court, distinguishes Woods as North Carolina’s best high school boys basketball player.  Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year award to be announced in March, Woods joins an elite alumni association of past state boys basketball award winners, including Dwight Howard (2003-04, SW Atlanta Christian Academy, Ga.), Chauncey Billups (1993-94 & 1994-95, George Washington HS, Colo.), Jason Kidd (1991-92, St. Joseph Notre Dame HS, Calif.), Paul Pierce (1994-95, Inglewood HS, Calif.) and Chris Bosh (2001-02, Lincoln HS, Texas).

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound senior guard has led the Knights to a 28-1 record, a third consecutive North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association Class 2A state championship and a berth in the DICK’S Sporting Goods High School National Tournament, scheduled to begin April 3. A three-time NCISAA Class 2A First Team All-State selection, Woods is averaging 17.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He collected 22 points, four rebounds and three assists in an 87-68 victory against Concord First Assembly Academy in the title game.

Woods has maintained a weighted GPA of 3.79 in the classroom and represents one of the state’s top academic candidates in meeting the Gatorade Award’s broad criteria. A member of the National Honor Society and his school’s leadership council as well as president of Northside Christian’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter, he has volunteered locally on behalf of his church, as a youth basketball instructor and as a peer tutor.

“Keyshawn Woods is an outstanding player,” said Wade Tapp, head coach of rival Covenant Day School. “He’s the best in Charlotte and perhaps the best in the state. He has exceptional court awareness and makes his teammates better. I suspect that he will make a significant mark on UNCC. Shooting, passing, ball-handling, you name it, and he does it well at a fundamental and advanced level.”

Woods has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball on scholarship at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte this fall.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport.  The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.

Woods joins recent Gatorade North Carolina Boys Basketball Players of the Year Isaiah Hicks (2012-13, J.F. Webb High School), Rodney Purvis (2011-12, Upper Room Christian Academy), Marshall Plumlee (2010-11, Christ School), Reggie Bullock (2009-10, Kinston), Ryan Kelly (2008-09, Ravenscroft School), and Ty Walker (2007-08 & 2006–07, New Hanover High School) among the state’s list of former award winners.

Seven Observer-area players to play in Carolinas All-Star prep classic March 22 in Myrtle Beach

Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic Announces 2014 Teams/Players

Myrtle Beach, SC- Forty of the top North and South Carolina high school seniors have been chosen to represent their school and state in the 17th Annual Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic to be played Friday, March 21 through Saturday, March 22 in Myrtle Beach.


Area players selected to the boys team include Concord's Connor Burchfield, Shelby's Gabe DeVoe, Marvin Ridge's John Emezie and Olympic's C.J. Jackson.

Area girls players selected include Albemarle's Akela Branch, East Rutherford's Rachel Camp and Bandy's Ace Easter.

 “It is exciting to welcome the Classic again this year,” said Executive Director, John Rhodes.  It’s really an honor for Myrtle Beach and for these talented young men and women. The players are selected from teams across the Carolinas and represent some of the nation’s most talented athletes. They work extremely hard in the classroom and on the court to earn the opportunity to participate in this incredible tournament,” he continued.

While the players are initially nominated by their coaches, it is the North and South Carolina Coaches’ Associations that make the final selections. The in-depth nomination process, which takes into consideration both the player’s academic and athletic ability, adds to the prestige of the event. 

“This year’s All Star Basketball Classic promises to be one of the best to date,” Rhodes said. In 2013, South Carolina won the boy’s tournament for South Carolina’s fourth consecutive title while the North Carolina women upset two-time reining champion, South Carolina, in exciting overtime play.

The two-day event attracts approximately 5,000 fans from throughout both Carolinas.

Tickets for the 17th Annual Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic are available at Myrtle Beach High School and may be purchased in advance or ‘day of’. For more information, visit www.carolinaallstarclassic.com or call 843-231-7798.

Harding High names Walt Aikens new football coach

Harding High has taken the “interim” off football coach Walter Aikens’ title.

Aiken will coach the Rams’ football and basketball teams during the 2014-15 season.

Aikens was named Harding’s interim football caoch just weeks before the 2013 season began. The Rams began with a three-game win streak, that included a win over rival West Charlotte. Harding finished 3-7 last season and has not had a winning season since William Perkins’ 2007 team was 8-4. That was the Rams only winning season in the past 10 years. Since the 2007 team won eight games, Harding is 14-49.

Aikens, well-liked at the school, wants to establish a good foundation for his school’s football team in 2014.

“Last year,” he said, “it was a last minute thing and I was doing what I could. But this year, I’ll be over the whole program. After going through it this year, I can do both and I’ve already got a plan of attack of how to do it while being able to continue to do my preseason basketball workouts as well.”

Aikens, 49, doesn’t plan to stay with the football team long-term, however.

“I’m going to dive into this year,” he said, “and I’m going to try to get the (football) program going in the right direction and hopefully in a year or so, someone can come in and be dedicated to it and just be focused on football alone. I want to be the starting point with getting the program going where it should be.”
