Sports2-a-Days Preview: Dutchtown Griffins

Posted 7:05 PM 7/15/2021 by WBRZ Sports

Tons of questions surround Guy Mistretta in his 5th season at the helm of Dutchtown. The Griffins still don't have a quarterback yet with the race between Pierson Parent and Sean Winfield looking as though it could come down to the season opener. 

A six win season in 2020 should be duplicated if the Griffins continue to rely on four star running back and Tennessee commit Dylan Sampson. A first team all state selection, he should be primed for another breakout year.

When you win just 5 games in six seasons, a change is very much needed. Belaire made the decision to hire Byron Wade in the summer of 2020 and it paid huge dividends. The Bengals, despite going 2-6, made the playoffs for the first time in 17 years in a wild and crazy COVID season.

In year two under Wade, Belaire will return fifteen total starters and 16 seniors who all were four year starters.


Sports2-a-Days Preview: Madison Prep Chargers

Posted 5:52 PM 7/10/2021 by WBRZ Sports

The defending 3A state champ Madison Prep Chargers have a simple formula for success in 2021. Quarterback and U-L commit Zeon Chriss runs the offense.

The Hornets will be a little short handed on the defensive side with just two returning starters but the supreme athleticism on both sides of the football should lend itself to a deep playoff run in 2021.
