Duke grabs a good one in Mr. Boone

Weddington QB Anthony Boone had a fine performance at Sunday's combine at West Charlotte High, probably playing well enough that recruiters began digging through their contacts for his phone number when they heard the news.

Boone, though, is off the market, happy with his commitment to Duke. The Blue Devils were mentioned by a number of players Sunday, and behind coach David Cutcliffe, seem to be generating more interest among the better Carolinas prospects than in the past. recruiting expert Chad Simmons watched Boone throw and came away impressed.

"I thought Boone looked good," he said. "A little undersized, but a live arm, great release. For him, at 6-foot-1, he’s got to release the ball high, and he does. I think he did really well."

At the combine, Boone also weighed in at a solid 225.8 pounds. And he may not be through growing.

It appears the Blue Devils made a nice catch.--Stan Olson

Isn't it amazing how a team can have not one but two D1 quarterbacks on their roster and not win a game! Granted, Weddington has been hurt by the opening of Marvin Rdge and will have a further segmentation with Cuthbertson opening in the fall. Granted they played in a brutal conference but how about the 2A and 3A schools they got beat by in Union County. Harden is an improvement over Williams. Hey Ms. Alley, maybe now it's time to review the Basketball situation! Those familiar with this situation will fully understand.
