Defense Helps Build Tar Heels Into WinnerNovember 27, 2013 at 10:18 am
Eighty, as in the number of points the Tar Heels scored in Saturday’s 80-20 win over Old Dominion, is remarkable to be sure. Another number associated with the Tar Heels, 90, might be even more impressive, however. It’s the total points the team has allowed in its last five games, all wins, as UNC climbed […]

It’s disappointing but probably appropriate that Orange is the lone remaining squad from our area to still be in the state high school football playoffs.
Tar Heels Put Special in Special TeamsNovember 20, 2013 at 3:49 pm
Normally, it’s not a good sign when a punter is among a team’s standout performers. For the Tar Heels, however, Tommy Hibbard’s contributions were critical in a 34-27 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday. Hibbard’s five boots travelled a total of 216 yards, good for a 43.2 yard average. The Tar Heels also did a superb […]

AT A LOSS: The area’s top two teams, No. 1 Orange and No. 2 Northwood head into the playoffs with a bad taste in their respective mouths. The Panthers squandered an opportunity to finish with their first perfect regular season in 50 years, falling to Southern Durham in a 55-41 shootout. Northwood, meanwhile, lost a […]
A Humble HeelNovember 13, 2013 at 11:50 am
One of the most important qualities a leader can have is humility. Check that box off for Tar Heels quarterback Marquise Williams, who opted to don jersey No. 2 in honor of the man, Bryn Renner, for whom he took over for behind center. Head coach Larry Fedora was pleased, though not particularly surprised, by […]

VERY GOOD NORTHWOOD, ORANGE PUTS SQUEEZE ON, MUDDLE IN MIDDLE
Renner in RetrospectNovember 6, 2013 at 12:19 pm
If one were to grade Bryn Renner as a college quarterback, a B- would seem about right. Renner, the fifth-year senior who likely played his final down with the Tar Heels after injuring his shoulder in Saturday’s win over NC State, surely had his ups and downs in Chapel Hill. The injury, which came on […]

It has been a long, difficult season for the East Chapel Hill Wildcats.
Eric Ebron’s Big TalkOctober 30, 2013 at 4:45 pm
They say it’s OK to talk as long as you can back it up. Tar Heels tight end Eric Ebron certainly can as the team’s likely MVP and most electric performer to this point of the season. Ebron is doing his best to put a charge into Saturday’s showdown at NC State, taking to twitter […]
The Whole Nine Yards: Week 10October 24, 2013 at 8:00 am
I don’t remember a more enjoyable night of high school football than Friday when Orange barely edged Chapel Hill and Southern Durham escaped Northwood for a two-point win.
