Davidson Day QB Will Grier continues rewriting Meck Co. record book

Davidson Day quarterback Will Grier continues a full-out assault on the Mecklenburg County record book.

He completed 29-of-36 passes for 493 yards and six touchdowns in a 42-35 win over North Raleigh Christian. Four of the touchdown passes covered at least 42 yards.

It was the fourth-most passing yards in Mecklenburg County history, trailing only West Charlotte’s Darius Thomas (502 in 2007 and 512 in 2007) and Independence’s Chris Leak (585 in 2002).

The six touchdowns ties several players for third, including Grier, who threw six last season as a sophomore.

This QB is the real deal and their competition is better than you might think. They won the NFL sponsored 7 on 7 Panthers regionals this summer over Mallard Creek and finished 8th out of 32 teams in the national tournament in Indy this summer. Cam Newton played in this tournament in high school. This kid is as good as any QB in the Carolinas. They also have a stud MLB who is just a 9th grader, but starts and never comes out of the game.

He may be a good player, but the competition is far from good. If it was, no 9th grader could play the entire game at MLB. Unless of course he is one of those 17 year old 9th graders. Which s possibe at a school like DD.

Way to go, Will!

Looks like 'Anonymous' is still licking his wounds from he or his kid not being good enough.

I think they played Latin last year. Not exactly a powerhouse, but probably the best team that have played in the last two years. Anyone know how that turned out?

Latin annihilated them and the Davidsons Days offense did absolutely nothing in that game. Maybe Davidson is better this year. Latin graduated some good players so maybe they can move the ball on them when they play thus time.

Davidson Day plays Country Day and Latin this year, and maybe Providence Day. They weren't remotely competitive against Latin this year, so it will be interesting to see how they do against those schools. That being said, thus far they have not played good competition.
