East Lincoln football to forfeit 3 games

East Lincoln football will forfeit its first three football games due to the participation of an ineligible player, according to a release from athletic director and head coach Mike Byus.

The Mustangs, ranked No. 16 in the Observer's Sweet 16 poll and the defending N.C. 2A state champions, will now have a record of 4-4, 4-0 in conference play. East Lincoln was 7-1.

A "clerical error" led to the the participation of the player, according to the release, and the eligibility issue centered around "the local promotions standard as set by each county throughout the state."

Byus didn't name the player in the release and didn't say what role he played on the team, just that "the player in question did dress out for three games."

The school notified the N.C. High School Athletic Association immediately and made every appeal allowable.

"No rule was intentionally broken," Byus said in the release. "In fact, he would be eligible in many districts across the state. I feel terrible for all the young men who have put in many of hours of hard work to achieve this level of success only to have it taken away. It's very disappointing, however, the only alternative we have is to accept it and move on."

The games in question were against East Gaston, Q Foundation and North Lincoln.

Major prep basketball tournament coming to Charlotte

Charlotte is about to get its big-time prep basketball tournament back.

Four years after he last put on the successful Bojangles’ Shootout, local organizer Jeff Hood will kick off a new event in December, sources said. Hood, who would not comment on the report, sent out a media release announcing a “major high school basketball endeavor planned for Charlotte.” A news conference will be held Monday morning in uptown Charlotte.

“Charlotte and the surrounding region makes for a wonderful destination and community to host a major event, especially as it relates to high school basketball,” Hood said in the release. “With the loss of several high-level high school basketball events, it is time to look at restoring a tradition, which at one time had Charlotte highly placed upon the national high school basketball map.”

While working with the Dell Curry Foundation, which later morphed into Athletes United For Youth, Hood and Curry, the former Charlotte Hornets star, organized the first Dell Curry Shootout in 2000. It drew more than 5,000 fans to the Bojangles’ Coliseum. Three boys games and one girls game were played, each matching a Charlotte-Mecklenburg public school against a local private school. It was the first time in 16 years that public and private schools had played.

In 2001, Hood altered the format and added a national boys field in addition to a regional boys and girls tournament, later landing title sponsorships from Lowe’s and Bojangles’. Over the years, several future NBA players participated, including Raymond Felton, Anthony Morrow, Stephen Curry, Kendall Marshall, Wayne Ellington and Gerald Henderson.

One of the featured games in 2007 had national football prep player of the year Terrelle Pryor against future Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors. Pryor, who starred at Ohio State, is now quarterback for the Oakland Raiders.

The girls event featured stars like Tennessee’s Cierra Burdick, who was a prep All-American at Butler High, and national prep player of the year Maya Moore, who later won a national title at Connecticut and is now in the WNBA.

In 2008, USA Today named the Bojangles’ Shootout the top post-Christmas high school tournament in America. But shortly afterward, Hood left Athletes United For Youth and the tournament began a downward sprial in terms of attracting talent and fans. In 2010, the Charlotte Sports Commission took over the event, renaming it the Hardwood Classic in 2011. The Sports Commission said it lost $13,000 in 2011 and canceled the event in 2012.

Hood’s new event will benefit Hoodie’s House of Hope For Youth, a nonprofit started in 2010 to help underserved youth in Mecklenburg County.

Friday's Rewind

Davidson Day 61, Metrolina Christian 21:
Davidson Day ran its record to 8-0 with an easy win at Bailey Road Middle. The Patriots led 40-8 at halftime. QB Will Grier was 21-of-30 for 329 yards and six touchdowns. He ran 41 yards and two touchdowns. Jordan Brown had five catches for 65 yards and three touchdowns. Davidson Day plays at Charlotte Latin. Davidson Day coach Chad Grier graduated from Charlotte Latin in 1986. He was current Hawks coach Larry McNulty’s first QB.

West Mecklenburg 41, Olympic 8: Hawks senior running back Shaun Wilson ran 21 times for 265 yards and three touchdows in the easy win. West Meck scored 14 points in the first quarter and led 35-0 at halftime. The Hawks were up 41-0 before Olympic’s Trey Gowen scored from 7 yards out in the fourth quarter. Brandon Dixon scored twice for the Hawks (7-1, 3-1 SoMeck 8). West Meck plays conference unbeaten Charlotte Catholic next week.

Charlotte Christian 45, Country Day 21: On homecoming, Charlotte Christian jumped all over its CISAA conference rival. The unbeaten Knights (8-0, 2-0) stormed out to a 35-7 hafltime lead. In the second quarter, Christian scored three touchdowns in less than six minutes. Knights QB Bo Hines threw for 271 yards and two touchdowns, completing 10-of-15 passes.

The Patriots came into the game having lost three of four games. Independence improved to 5-3 overall, 2-1 in conference play. The Patriots can still potentially get in a line for a conference title by beating Myers Park, Rocky River and Butler in its final three games.

If the Chargers win both, they’ll grab a share of the league title.

Berry 49, Harding 14: Berry ended a three-game losing streak with an easy win in the “Battle of Alleghany.” The two schools sit about a mile apart from each on Allgehany Road near uptown Charlotte. Berry (2-6) won its first SoMeck 8 game in school history. Harding, which began the season 3-0, dropped its fourth straight game. The Rams are 3-4 overall, 0-4 in conference play.

250: Forest Hills coach John Lowery won his 250th career game in a 56-25 win over Parkwood Friday.

Garinger soccer rallies to beat Porter Ridge, stay unbeaten

Garinger High's soccer team, ranked No. 2 in the Observer's Sweet 16 poll, kept its unbeaten season alive with a huge rally in Union County Wednesday night.

The Wildcats (18-0, 9-0 Southwestern 4A) beat Porter Ridge 3-2 after trailing 2-0 at halftime on the road.

Tresor Mbuyu, who leads the Observer's coverage area in scoring, scored the game-winning point with less than one minute to play.

Mbuyu entered the game with 27 goals, two ahead of teammate Hussein Arsene.

Porter Ridge (12-5-1, 4-3) had a five-game win streak snapped.

Garinger plays Independence at home Oct. 14 and has big games remaining with Sweet 16 No. 5 Charlotte Catholic Oct. 19 and a potential Southwestern 4A championship game with Myers Park Oct. 21.

Both of those matches are on the road.

Vance basketball star Torin Dorn commits to Charlotte

Vance High senior guard Torin Dorn has committed to Charlotte, Vance athletics director Carlos Richardson told the Observer.

Dorn, 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds, averaged 14.6 points and 4.0 rebounds for Vance last season. ESPN ranks him No. 13 overall in North Carolina.

At Charlotte, Dorn joins Northside Christian’s Keyshawn Woods as the second Mecklenburg County player to commit to the 49ers in the class of 2014. Woods is ranked No. 9 in the state by ESPN. Woods and Dorn add to a 49ers roster that’s beginning to feature a lot of local talent.

The 49ers already have two home-grown kids on their roster: former Charlotte Christian player Mitch Warner, a sophomore guard, and former West Meck standout Terrence Williams, a junior guard. Another area star, Mooresville High’s Shawn Lester, was academically ineligible last season and has rejoined the team.

Two other Mecklenburg County players will join the 49ers in the future: former United Faith All-American Braxton Ogbueze transferred from Florida, and former Davidson Day star Bernard Sullivan transferred from Clemson. Both players will sit out the 2013-14 season and play in 2014-15. Also, former Myers Park guard Ben Cherry has transferred to Charlotte, after starting four games at Tulane during the past two seasons.
