  • #TrojanPride in full force at...

     I had a wonderful high school experience. In hindsight, I don’t have anything negative to say about my four years at West Brunswick High School. When the greatest class to ever roam the halls on Whiteville Road in Shallotte left in 2005, we took a lot of great memories with us.

    Let me precede everything else in my weekly column with this – nothing I’m saying is a negative toward the principals and other leaders at West since I was there in the middle of the last decade.

  • Trojans dominate second half in...

     SHALLOTTE – On Homecoming night at M.H. Rourk Stadium, it was West Brunswick’s defense that was king.

    A stingy and opportunistic Trojan defense forced four turnovers, registered five sacks and scored on an interception return, turning what was a close game into a one-sided affair.

    Senior defensive back Jelen Jones-Bey returned an interception 62 yards for a touchdown on the third play from scrimmage of the second half and West scored 28 unanswered points after halftime in a 35-7 victory.
