Davidson Day's Will Grier wins national player of week award after 837 yard pass night

From Observer News Services

Wharton, N.J. (Nov. 12, 2012) - Quarterback Will Grier of Davidson Day (N.C.) High School was named the U.S. Army All-American Bowl High School Player of the Week, for the week ending November 11. Will Grier threw for a national record 837 yards and 10 touchdowns as Davidson Day defeated Harrells Christian 104-80.  Grier shattered the previous national mark of 764 set in 2000 by Pacific Palisades (Calif.) quarterback David Koral. 

Grier was joined by some other outstanding players who earned U.S. Army All-American Bowl High School Player of the Week nomination honors. One nominee was U.S. Army All-American running back Thomas Tyner of Aloha (Ore.) High School. Tyner’s 431 yard performance increased his total yards for the year to over 3,000. Tyner’s 5 touchdowns helped Aloha High School win its playoff game against Glencoe (Ore.) High School 38-35. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl High School Player of the Week was designed to recognize the nation’s top high school performance of the week.

Please!! No one in Charlotte is impressed. No one respects Coach Grier.. After reading the comments from your last article I am surprised you are still reporting this story. These records and the Davidson Day Football program is a joke! Once Will leaves, his dad will leave and it will no longer exist!!!

Chris Leake was a true talent and went on to college to be successful. He played against the toughest talent in high school. I respect that! This is no longer news worthy!!

Can we get Davidson Day and Charlotte Christian to play Butler.. Please??? Christian plays one game and is in the State Championship and this kids at Davidson Day is obviously playing weak competition. Spare me!!!!! IF your kids is talented, let him compete with the best. 4A football in NC is he only real football..

Have you guys run out of stories! It is football playoff season and the start of basketball season. Surely there is something else to report!

Maybe we can all calm down and get over the fact that Will Grier is one of the oldest "juniors" in the state and has his Dad as coach running up the stats against tiny little private schools? I'd love to see him take his licks against a Mallard Creek, Butler or any 4A school.

The opponent scored 80. Was the defense just letting them score so the offense could score again. Sounds like a pathetic game was played.

Davidson Day Football is ruining what is a pretty good school. The school sold itself out for football thinking it would help increase enrollment numbers. The school did increase enrollment by letting talented football players (who would be mediocre players at the 4A public school level) come for FREE while charging all the other families full or close to full tuition. The school should be a shame of itself for creating this sham of a program!

Why let Davidson Day play 4A teams? They were beaten soundly by Providence Day and blown out by Country Day. Private schools can't compete with Butler or Mallard Creek. They have proven they can compete with anybody else in Charlotte.

For all those that think these players can't play among the best in public school, you need to get "your life". Several of these players have played in all-star games that consist of players from all of the United States showing just how good they are. And one thing for sure, they DON'T go to school for FREE! Trust me I know, I pay tuition for my All-Star All-American Football Player who has as 3.7 GPA! So kick rocks and stop hating!
