Tonight we welcomed into the program head football coach of Lexington High school, Scott Early. Before his stint as the head man of the Wildcats, Early coached Everett Golson at Myrtle Beach High.
Golson’s dream was to be a Tar Heel and play at UNC, and initially committed to the school, before staff shake-ups forced him to re-open his recruitment, where he eventually signed with Notre Dame.

Many believe the key to tonight’s game will be the play of the Irish red-shirt freshman signal-caller, when you consider Alabama’s defensive pedigree, and head coach Nick Saban’s reputation in games he has extra prep time.
Since one of the state’s top high school players of the 2011 class will be taking snaps for one of the participants, we decided to bring in Coach Earley (who is in attendance for tonight’s game) to talk about Golson’s progression as a player.
