Butler QB LeMay wins second national player of the year award

Just a few weeks after winning the MaxPreps national junior of the year award, Butler High quarterback Christian LeMay has earned a similar honor.

Friday, he was named ESPN's national junior player of the year.

He was also named to ESPN's junior class national team.

LeMay threw for more than 3,000 yards and 44 touchdowns last season, leading Butler to a 15-0 record and the school's first state championship. He was named Gatorade N.C. player of the year and the Observer's co-offensive player of the year, an award he shared with West Rowan Parade All American K.P. Parks.

Two other area players made ESPN's first team all junior team: Anson Senior linebacker Stephone Anthony and Rock Hill South Pointe defensive end Jadaveon Clowney. Clowney was the Observer's defensive player of the year.

Other Carolinians on ESPN's national junior first team: OL Brandon Shell, West Ashley (SC); DE Jadaveon Clowney, Rock Hill South Pointe; LB Stephone Anthony, Anson Senior.

-- Rock Hill Northwestern WR Robert Joseph and Northern Guilford DB Maurice Harris made the all-junior second team

Weather forcing big changes to tonight's basketball schedule

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools were originally planning to play tonight's scheduled basketball games, but the early arriving snow has forced a change.

Tonight's Sweet 16 showdown between the No. 1 East Meck girls and No. 2 Butler at Butler has been postponed. The schools will have a doubleheader starting Monday at 6. The Sweet 16 boys showdown with No. 2 Lake Norman at No. 1 Hopewell was postponed until Monday. That decision was made earlier Friday.

Also, Ardrey Kell at Myers Park, Mallard Creek at Vance and Providence at Independence were postponed until Monday. Those doubleheader games will start at 6.

The Waddell at West Mecklenburg games, scheduled for tonight, were moved to Wednesday, Feb. 10. Tipoff is at 6 p.m.

The Olympic at Harding doubleheader is still being played tonight.

The home school, in each case, made the decision to make the changes. It was not a district decision.

All CMS athletic activities scheduled for Saturday have been called off.

Lake Norman's boys will now have a particularly tough week: They play at No. 1 Hopewell Monday, host No. 5 Vance Tuesday, play regional power West Charlotte Thursday and Patrick Henry in Virginia Saturday.


West Charlotte's boys' and girls' games at Mooresville will be played Friday, Feb. 5.

Other postponements and changes, due to tonight's expected snow event:

-- Victory Christian at Davidson Day has moved up the start of its doubleheader to 4:30 p.m.

On eve of Butler showdown, East Meck girls crack national top 50

One day before East Mecklenburg (18-1) plays Butler in one of the biggest girls basketball games in the state this year, the Eagles have moved into ESPN's national top 50 poll.


The Eagles are No. 49 this week.

East Meck is ranked No. 1 in the N.C. Preps state media 4A poll and No. 1 in the Observer's Sweet 16.

East's only loss is to 18-0 Parkview (GA), ranked No. 40 by ESPN. Parkview beat the Eagles 68-62 in Christmas tournament last month. Since then, East has won six straight.

Butler is No. 2 in the Sweet 16. The Bulldogs started the season nationally ranked by USA Today and ESPN. East Meck beat Butler 64-52 on Dec. 17.

Butler has won six straight games since dropping two straight in a Christmas tournament, including a 63-47 loss to Goose Creek (S.C.), which is No. 36 in ESPN's national poll.

Lake Norman boys, Hickory Grove girls suffer blows to state title hopes

Hickory Grove's girls and Lake Norman's boys, both favorites to win state championships this season, have both lost key players.


Hickory Grove's LaCherish Reed will miss the remainder of the season to concentrate on her academics. She's signed to N.C. A&T.

Lake Norman's Matt Denyes was removed from the team due to a violation of team/school rules and policy. Denyes, who is getting some Division II and Division III recruitment in football and basketball, was averaging 10 points and five rebounds for the Wildcats, No. 2 in the Sweet 16.

Lake Norman plays at No. 1 Hopewell Friday.

Hickory Grove is at Westminster Catawba Friday.

Tuesday night recap: Watch out for Waddell

I was a little surprised that Waddell stood up and stopped Harding's boys 52-48 at home Tuesday. The Rams came into the game with one loss in the MEGA 7 conference and were probably looking ahead to a first place showdown with conference unbeaten Olympic Friday.

Waddell will be in the 3A playoffs and will be dangerous then. Harding and Olympic will go 4A. That means the Raiders could get a No. 1 seed and a good bracket.

Waddell is 14-4 and won five of its past six games. Coach Oscar Walker's team is 8-0 at home.

Waddell has size in 6-8 Jarvon Pressley and a potential star in 6-6 junior Tony Menton.

-- Ardrey Kell's boys are unbeaten on the road but only 4-4 at home after Tuesday's 46-34 win over Independence. The Knights (13-6, 5-2 Southwestern 4A) have won four straight and trail only East Mecklenburg (11-9, 7-1) in league play.

I watched Tuesday's Independence game and think the Knights can make another deep playoff run, like last year's trip to the state quarterfinals, if they can shore up guard play. Ardrey Kell had all types of problems against pressure defense Tuesday -- and I expect future opponents will use similar tactics, which helps keep the Knights from using their powerhouse inside game with 6-foot-8, 240-pound center Cameron McQueen. McQueen had 15 against Indy Tuesday.

Big game for Ardrey Kell Friday at home with Myers Park (11-7, 5-3). The Mustangs lost to East Mecklenburg Friday and need to win to stay in the conference championship race. A loss will all but do them in. The Knights need to stay within a game of the Eagles.

-- JT Terrell had 36 in West Charlotte's 79-58 win over North Meck Tuesday. The Vikings

-- East Mecklenburg's girls (19-1, 9-0 Southwestern 4A) have won six straight since losing to national power Parkview (GA) in a Christmas Tournament. In that run, the Eagles have held five opponents to 38 points or less. The Eagles, No. 1 in the Sweet 16, play at No. 2 Butler (13-3, 7-1) Friday in the girls game of the year in North Carolina.

Monet Tellier had 19 for the Eagles in Tuesday's 63-49 win over Myers Park.

-- Speaking of Myers Park's girls, the Mustangs (11-7, 3-5) have six losses to East Meck, Butler, Rock Hill Northwestern and Hopewell -- all top 10 Sweet 16 teams and all state powers. The only other team to beat Myers Park this year is Ardrey Kell.

Guess who Myers Park plays Friday? Yep, Ardrey Kell. That's a big barometer game. I'm not saying Myers Park can win a state championship, but if they get into the right playoff bracket, they could get to a regional this season.

-- Friday's Lake Norman at Hopewell boys game matches two of the state's top 3 4A ranked boys teams and the teams ranked 1-2 in the Sweet 16, but the girls game is just as meaningful, at least in the conference championship race.

Hopewell's boys are a game up on Lake Norman in the league standings. And Hopewell's girls (16-2, 7-0) are two games clear of Mallard Creek (11-7, 6-2) and Lake Norman (14-4, 6-2). Lake Norman beat Mallard Creek 75-48 Tuesday, taking a 38-22 lead at halftime.

The Wildcats have won 9 straight games since losing 44-39 to Hopewell at home Dec. 17.

-- Junior Michael Cuthbertson had 14 points to lead first-year Waxhaw Cuthbertson HIgh to its first road win Tuesday. The team beat West Stanly 54-47. Cuthbertson (9-9, 5-5 Rocky River) has won five straight. I can't do the "elevator" in this blog. But they get a big "Up" mark.

-- Another elevator "up" mark goes to Berry girls. Berry won its eighth straight game after holding Unionville Piedmont to four first half field goals in 54-44 Tuesday to take over first place in the Rocky River conference. Essence Jackson had 14 and Milan Quinn 12 for Berry.

-- Former West Charlotte boys coach Gosnell White is working his magic again in Union County. After a subpar start, White's Marvin Ridge Mavericks (7-7, 4-1) have taken over first place in the Southern Carolina conference after Tuesday's 71-56 win over rival Weddington. Marvin Ridge started the season 0-3.

-- Charlotte Catholic's girls got 26 points from Ali Lane in Tuesday's 57-38 win over West Meck. Catholic has won 10 straight games.

-- After a tough 2-3 start, Concord's girls have won 8 straight, including a win over Concord Robinson Tuesday that ended Robinson's unbeaten dream season.

-- Shelby's boys have won three straight after Tuesday's 54-41 win over Kings Mountain. Zacc Gullatte had 18 for the Golden Lions.

-- Salisbury's boys are 10-4 and 10-2 since the football players joined the team. Junior Darien Rankin is averaging 18 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. He had 25 against West Rowan and Thomasville last week. He's scored in double figures in 11 of the 12 games he's played.

-- West Caldwell's boys have won 8 straight after Tuesday's 92-45 win over Maiden. Maiden didn't score for more than four minutes in the third quarter. West got 30 points from Kendall Jones, his third 30 point game this season.

Ruark: Leaving Myers Park football "tough to do"

Jim Ruark said leaving Myers Park High was one of the toughtest things he’s had to do.

Ruark, 43, is the new head football coach at East Burke. East Burke is in Icard, N.C., about an hour’s drive west of Charlotte. East Burke is a 2A school with 1,007 students.

Myers Park is a 4A school. It is the state’s largest high school with 2,988 students.

“East Burke is a smaller school,” Ruark said, “and it’s great opportunity to get into a smaller community, and really for family reasons we’re moving that way. I made the decision last Thursday. It’s very hard to leave Myers Park. I’ve been here seven years and I love these kids. The hardest part is leaving the kids, but sometimes you have to do what you think is right for your family and that’s what we’re doing.”

Ruark was an assistant coach at Burns for seven season and was 12-12 in two years as East Lincoln’s head coach from 2001-02. He was 39-47 at Myers Park. His 2005 team, which finished 9-6, reached the N.C. 4AA semifinals.

He’ll be the seventh coach at East Burke, replacing Mike Biggerstaff who was 59-37 in eight seasons, including 8-4 in 2009. Biggerstaff has retired.

Ruark starts his new job Feb. 22.

“We appreciate the honor and diginity with which (Ruark) ran our football program,” Myers Park athletics director Greg Clewis said, “and we wish him and his family nothing but the best. I know he’s excited about the new opporunity.”

Clewis said Myers Park will accept resumes for the opening until Feb. 12 with a target date of March 1 for hiring a new coach.

Butler QB LeMay to graduate early, narrows college list to 10

Butler High junior quarterback Christian LeMay, the 2009 Observer co-offensive player of the year, will graduate in December and enroll in college, his father, Stacey told the Observer.


Stacey LeMay said his son's list of 10 potential college choices are: Florida, Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, Miami, Mississippi State, Florida State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina.

Stacey LeMay said his son planned to narrow his list to five schools by May and to three by July.

LeMay is generally considered one of the nation's top five players at his position. He was named MaxPreps' national junior of the year and the Gatorade N.C. player of the year.

At 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, LeMay threw for 3,296 yards and 44 touchdowns last season, leading Butler to a 15-0 season, a national ranking and the school's first state championship. He threw only two interceptions all season.


Source: Jim Ruark resigning as Myers Park football coach

Myers Park football coach Jim Ruark is leaving to take the head football job at East Burke, sources told the Observer Monday night.

Myers Park High advertised an opening for a football coach on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' website today.

Efforts to reach Ruark were unsuccessful. Ruark coached the Mustangs from 2003-2009.

Ruark led the Mustangs to a 9-4 record and a second-round playoff berth in 2004. In 2005, the Mustangs finished 9-6 and reached the N.C. 4AA state semifinals.

Myers Park has not won more than five games in a season since the 2005 season and has not finished a season with a winning record.

The Mustangs opening means CMS has football openings at Ardrey Kell, Independence, Myers Park, West Meck and two new schools opening this fall: Hough High in northern Mecklenburg and Rocky River in Mint Hill.

South Meck's Kennedy commits to Charleston, W Va.

South Mecklenburg running back Larry Kennedy III has committed to the University of Charleston in West Virginia, his father, Larry Jr., said.

Kennedy, an all-conference pick in the Southwestern 4A, conference, rushed 135 times for 1,289 yards this season. He caught 21 passes for 480 yards.

Indy's Carrothers commits to Grambling

Independence High quarterback Anthony Carrothers has committed to Grambling State University, his father, Anthony Sr., said.

Grambling, a historically black university in Louisiana, was 7-4 last season. Legendary coach Eddie Robinson won an NCAA Division I record 408 games as Tigers coach from 1941-1997.

Carrothers Sr. said his son considered Western Carolina, Southern University, Georgia Southern, Pembroke and Winston-Salem State.

"We liked the fact that they have four coaches from North Carolina, which I thought was great, and he'll have the opportunity to go and play," Carrothers Sr. said. "He'll battle with a freshman and sophomore and has a great opportunity to compete for the job, and I like the academic piece they have as well, the way they have study hall and a tutoring program set up. When I was down there, I was sort of in awe myself knowing all the history at Grambling. A lot of times it's about a feeling where you want to go, and everything felt right."

Carrothers is a two-time Southwestern 4A offensive player of the year and was a first-team All-Observer football team pick this season. He threw for 4,028 yards and 36 touchdowns this season. His 10,775 passing yards are second in county and state history behind former Patriot Chris Leak. Carrothers is only the second player in county history to have two 4,000-yard seasons.
