Second half surge sends Garner to victory


Facing their biggest deficit of the year, Garner found their stride scoring 37 points in the second half to finish undefeated with a 44-23 in over Harnett Central.

Garner (11-0, 7-0) scored on their first play from scrimmage as Juwan Moye rambled for 96-yards and the score to give the Trojans a 7-0 lead.

However that would be about the only highlight for Garner in the first half as Harnett Central (5-5, 2-5) scored 17 unanswered points on a touchdown run from Malcolm Graves and a Bale Ware pass to make it 14-7. Nate Laing added a 47-yard field goal and at the break, Central held a 17-7 lead.

A Garner fumble gave Central the ball early in third Ware rumbled up the middle 65-yards for the score and a 23-7 lead.

With thing looking bleak for Garner, Moye, put the Trojans on his back and carried them to victory rumbling for 316 yards on 22 carries helping Garner pull to within eight after a touchdown run and a two-point conversion with over nine minutes left in the third.

The Trojans pulled even with 5:30 to play in the third when Tyler Hinton scored from three yards out and another two point conversion tied the contest at 23.

With the game tied, it was all Garner as Moye and Hinton took over scoring a combined three touchdowns helping Garner roll to 44-23 win and cap an undefeated season for the first time since 2007.

Additionally, the 316 yards from Moye is the highest single game total since Sean Jackson in 1999.

Garner will be back in action next week when they are home for the first round of the state playoffs. Kick-off will be 7:30 and the opponent will be announced on Saturday.

Garner and Clayton made up their suspended JV Football game on Monday night at Trojan Stadium and the Trojans came away with a 41-28 victory.

The game resumed early in the second quarter with Clayton leading 12-6, but it didn't take long for Garner to respond as on fourth down and two, Brighton Hudson hit Wallace Montague for a 13-12 Trojan lead.

After the Comets answered right back to take a 20-13 lead, Garner scored again this time it was the familiar duo of Hudson to Julius Barnes to knot the score at 20 heading into the halftime break.

In the second half, it was Raekwon Britton who got the Trojans on the board first with a 17-yard run and after another touchdown pass from Hudson to Britton, it was 34-20 Garner after three quarters.

The final score of the night came when Tyreece Taylor rumbled 49-yards for the score and the 41-20 lead for Garner.

Trojans out last Bulldogs


It was built as a game of big plays and on Friday night at John Baker Stadium, the contest was all that and more as Garner out punched Southeast Raleigh 41-34 to earn the Greater Neuse River Conference Championship.

Southeast Raleigh (7-2, 5-1) stuck on the first play from scrimmage as David Washington hit Quentin Atkinson for a 86 yard touchdown and the Bulldogs were off to the races up 7-0.

Garner (10-0, 6-0) answered right back on the ensuing kick-off as Anthony Tucker returned the kick back 90 yards to make it 7-6 after a missed extra point.

The Bulldogs answered right back with a five play scoring drive than ended on a flea flicker as Tristan Walker pitched to Washington who hit Atkinson again for the score and a 13-6 lead for the home team which is how the first quarter ended.

Early in the second, Garner pulled to within one as Demetrius Fairley rumbled into the end zone to make it 13-12 Southeast. The Bulldogs answered on the next drive with another big play as Washington hit Walker for the 20-12 lead.

Late in the first half, Garner found the answer. Backed up on their own 10 yard line, the Trojans went to the air as Vince Jefferies found Anthony Tucker for a 90-yard completion to pull Garner to within two. The Trojans elected to go for two and connected as Moye found Brayden Sims in the back of the end zone to send the game to a 20-20 tie at the break.

Garner came out swinging in the second half, on the first play from scrimmage, Moye rambled 53-yards to pay dirt and the first lead of the night for the Trojans at 26-20.

Yet again, the Bulldogs answered as Washington hit Ramel Tedder for a touchdown and the Bulldogs regained a one point lead. On the next drive, Garner salted the clock with an 12 play drive that took over five minutes off the clock and ended with another touchdown run from Fairley and after another two-point try, made it 34-27 Trojans.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Southeast answered with a pass to Tedder and knotted the game at 34.

Garner had one more score in them as the moved the ball down the field on the ensuing drive. After runs of 25 and 26 yards from Fairley and Moye, it was Fairley who capped the drive with a four yard run and a 41-34 lead for the Trojans.

On their final drive, Southeast Raleigh faced a fourth down and 32 and on the play, Gavin Wilson and Jeremine Bologiongo sacked Washington to end the game and preserve the 41-34 win for the Trojans.

Garner will conclude their regular season next week when the return to Trojan Stadium and welcome Harnett Central to town. Kick-off is slated for 7:30.

JV Trojans fall to Southeast Raleigh

The JV Trojans dropped their second consecutive game this season with a 32-13 defeat on Thursday night at Trojan Stadium.

The Trojans trailed Southeast Raleigh 20-13 at the break and couldn't find their offensive rhythm in the second half as the Bulldogs hit two big pass plays for scores which proved to be the difference in the game.

Coach Lee and his JV Trojans are back at home Monday night at 6:00 when they conclude their suspended game with the Clayton Comets.

Trojans Joust Knights


After a sluggish start, Garner found their offensive stride on Friday night scoring 40 or more points for the sixth time this season as they spoiled the Knightdale homecoming with a 42-13 victory.

Knightdale (3-5, 2-3) struck first midway through the first quarter on a 65-yard drive which was aided by a pass interference call on the Trojans and an early 7-0 Knightdale lead, it was only the second time that the Trojans have trailed all season long.

It didn't take long for Garner (9-0, 5-0) to respond as they marched down the field and tied the game as Vince Jefferies hit Juwan Moye for a 55-yard touchdown pass and knot the score at seven.

After a three and out from the Knights, the Trojan offense went back to work and it was Moye again, this time on the ground as the senior waltzed into the end zone for a 14-7.

That lead grew to 21-7 early in the second quarter as Jefferies hooked up with Damian Ellis for another score.

Garner added two more first half scores, the first another Moye touchdown run. The final Trojan score of the half was another Jefferies touchdown (his third of the night) as he found Anthony Tucker in the back of the end zone and a 35-7 lead for the Trojans at the break.

In the second half, there was just one score for the Trojans and it was another run from Moye who scored his fourth all-purpose touchdown and a 42-7 Garner lead.

Knightdale added a late fourth quarter score for the final margin of 42-13.

Garner will be on the road next week as they travel to John Baker Stadium to battle rival Southeast Raleigh. Kick-off is slated for 7:30.

Garner pitches shutout on West Johnston


Garner's defense pitched it's first shutout of the year as the offense scored at will on Friday night at Trojan Stadium as they blanked West Johnston 55-0.

Fittingly, it was the Trojan defense that put the first points on the board on West Johnston's second offensive drive. Facing a fourth and long, the Wildcats went back to punt, however the ball sailed over the head of Darius Williams and out of the end zone for a quick 2-0 lead.

Garner (8-0, 4-0) put their first offensive score on the board when they marched down the field on the Wildcat defense and Juwan Moye scored from six yards out to make it 9-0 Trojans.

After the first quarter, Garner had the ball on their own 28 yard line and hit a home run as Vince Jefferies hit Anthony Tucker for a 72-yard touchdown pass an a 15-0 lead. That margin grew to 22-0 when Moye scored for the second time in the game, this time from 11-yards out.

The Trojans took a 29-0 lead into the locker room as Demetrius Fairley found a seem and rumbled 67-yards for the final score of the half.

Leading by 29, Garner got the ball to begin the second half and wasted no time lighting up the scoreboard again as Moye scored on a 51-yard run on the second play from scrimmage and a quick 35-0 lead

West Johnston (4-3, 2-2) finally had a drive going but the eight play drive stalled after a face punt attempt failed and Garner took over. On the ensuing possession, Jefferies connected with Tucker for the second time, and a 10 yard pass for the 42-0 lead.

Garner put up two fourth quarter scores as Andre Gillispie scored from three yards out to cap a nine play drive to make it 48-0. The final score came off a Sam Stidwell two yard touchdown run to cap the night as Garner scored at least 50 points for the third straight week and earned a 55-0 win over West Johnston.

The Trojans hit the road next week as they travel to Knightdale for a date with the Knights, kick-off is set for 7:30

Cook named Wake County Principal of the Year

The Wake County Public School System named Drew Cook of Garner Magnet High School the 2011 Principal of the Year

Cook has been in education for 14 years and has been principal of Garner Magnet High for 2.5 years. Prior to that, he was an assistant principal and teacher at Garner High.

Cook is a devoted husband and father, spending much of his free time with his wife and their daughters who are 8 and 10. He enjoys playing church softball, golfing, hiking, and weekend trips to the beach.

Cook said continuous collection and analysis of data relevant to instructional programming is important.

“When possible, we work as a collective team to study and identify what we think to be effective practices, then implement these practices in pockets as pilots and watch as the practice spreads when the realization sets in that it is working. Once our best instructional practices have been identified, and school-level data can be used to support the continued use of these strategies, then we can clearly define our expectations for teaching and learning as a school.”

Garner High coach Eddie Gray has known Cook for some time.

“I have known him as a student athlete, fellow social studies teacher, my assistant basketball coach, my assistant principal and now my principal,” said Gray. “Over the years, I have watched him grow from a tall, gangly junior in high school that helped a young varsity basketball coach win a conference championship to an outstanding high school principal that has led our beloved school through some very difficult times.”

Student Rachel Gogal witnessed firsthand the transformation of her school under Cook’s leadership.

“When he was appointed principal, the excitement was evident in the halls and in the classrooms,” said Gogal. “His mission was to make sure we succeeded in all aspects of education, from the International Baccalaureate’s expectations in our classes to our artistic endeavors in theater and chorus to our continued success in athletics. The school is on its way to making his mission come true.”

Congratulations, Mr. Cook!

JV Trojans slip past Wildcats

Garner did what they needed to do on Thursday night as they picked up another road victory as they downed West Johnston 19-6 at Wildcat Stadium.

The JV Trojans struck on their opening possession as Brighton Hudson found for a 41-yard pass completion and after the extra point by Kenneth Perkinson it was 7-0 Garner.

West Johnston could do little to slow Garner down on their next drive as once again, Hudson hit Barnes this time, it was just a 31-yard play and it was 13-0 Trojans and they would carry that lead into the locker room for halftime.

Garner (5-1, 3-0) scored just once in the second half and it came with just over four minutes left in the third quarter as Hudson scored on a quarterback keeper to make it 19-0.

West scored late in the game to make the final margin 19-6 as the JV Trojan pick up the road win.

Garner is back in action next Thursday when they welcome the Knightdale Knights to Trojan Stadium. Kick-off is set for 7:00.

Community of Hope Food Drive a huge success

On Tuesday, September 20th ,Community of Hope Ministries found itself calling local storage unit facilities looking for space to store several truckloads of groceries that were donated to the ministry by students at Garner Magnet High School participating in the Garner Magnet High School Homecoming Food Drive competition. In all, over 3900 total items were donated to the food pantry during Homecoming Week at Garner Magnet High School, September 19 – September 23rd.

Student Government advisor Jill Cottengim said, “It was neat to see the students take ownership of the drive this year. Last year was the first year we incorporated the food drive service component into our Homecoming Week activities. This year, the students took the idea and coordinated food drives in neighborhoods throughout the community to bring in additional food.”

Leaders from the Senior Class including Iva Earley, Zac Wilson, Gabi Dugal, Keith Boyette, Krista King, and Steven Jones contacted Community of Hope Ministries Development Director, Amy White, the week before Homecoming started to express the desire to run a food drive in Turner Farms subdivision.

White provided the bags and the flyers and the students walked door to door asking that neighbors participate in the drive. “The response was incredible”, said Earley, the student coordinator for the Senior Class drive. “It was easy and fun, and we know the food will go to those who need it most.” The Turner Farms drive returned an incredible 811 items placing the Seniors in first place to start the week of Homecoming Competition.

However, the Freshmen Class of 2015, goaded by the taunts from the high school’s upperclassmen that the Freshmen homecoming float was going to be too small and that the freshmen powder puff team would lose etc. secretly executed a three-subdivision homecoming food drive that brought in over 2000 food pantry items. Teams of students worked together to orchestrate drives in Turner Farms, Heather Downs and Hampton Ridge. Freshman Class advisor, Jon Sherwin, said he could not be more proud of the students in the Freshman class. “What they have done shows real class. Next week the floats will be forgotten and the no one will remember the score of the Powder Puff Game. To know that these kids worked together to collect food for those who are hungry in our community shows true heart!”

Freshman leaders involved in the food drive were: Lindsay Wright, Kyle Sammarco, Robbie McLamb, Duncan Forster, Bryson White, Logan Schild, Nicole Root, Nikki Wallace, Nick Phillips, Caroline Banker, Adam Gogal, Sarah Jankowski and Cassie Marshall.

White, said that the credit for the success of the food drive really goes to the school leadership. “I can’t say enough positive things about Principal Drew Cook and School Athletic Director, Doc Harrell. When we first approached the school about doing the drive, there was not a moment of hesitation. Both school leaders agreed that it was a win-win for both the school and the community.”

In addition to the weeklong competition, Harrell and the Trojan Athletics Booster Club offered $1 off of game admission to the Homecoming Game matchup between Garner and East Wake. Chick-fil-A marketing director, Kim Baber, joined the partnership by offering a FREE Chick-fil-A sandwich to anyone who donated at least three items on the night of the game. White added that the school’s Homecoming Week coordinator and Student Government advisor, Jill Cottengim, does an excellent job getting the students excited about participating in Homecoming week. “Jill added the food drive into her normal routine, just like she’d been doing it for years. I don’t think the Homecoming food drive would be a success without her support!” concluded White.

“It was an amazing week!” said White. To watch the pantry go from almost empty to abundantly overflowing is just a true blessing from God! We are so thankful that we will have the items we need to serve the at-risk and needy in our community.

Homecoming Week Food Drive Totals:

Freshmen: 2018

Sophomores: 784

Juniors: 70

Seniors: 811

Other: 250

On the next drive, Garner (7-0, 3-0) once again as Vince Jefferies connected with Juwan Moye for the only touchdown pass of the night and a quick 13-0 lead. After another SSS three and out, it was Moye again, this time on the ground as he put Garner up 20-0 with six minutes left in the first quarter.

The Trojans were able to get on the board one final time in the first quarter as Fairley scored his second and final touchdown of the night and a 27-0 lead for Garner after one. However, the scoring was far from over.

Garner's first play drive of the second quarter resulted in another touchdown pass from Jefferies to Moye and a 34-0 lead. The final appearance by the Garner first team came when Moye returned the ensuing punt 47-yards for pay dirt and a 41 point lead.

Andre Gillispie was the next Trojan to find the end zone as he scored his second rushing touchdown of the season to make it 48-0 with over five minutes left in the first half. Following another SSS three and out, Anthony Tucker fielded the Spartan punt and rumbled into the end zone from 60-yards out and a 55-0 lead.

Raveon Smith capped the first half scoring for Garner with a seven yard touchdown run and a 62-0 lead. SSS got on the board on the final play of the half as Dylan Homick connected with Donald Jones for an 89-yard touchdown pass and make it 62-7 Garner at the break.

The second half would be a contentious clock and the second team saw a lot of action for Garner as they scored a total of 14 second half points.

Garner's second half scores came off touchdown runs from Sam Stidwell and Montel Watters as the Trojans second 70 plus points against SSS for the second year in a row with a 76-7 victory.

The men of Troy return to Trojan Stadium next week when they welcome West Johnston to town, kick-off is scheduled for 7:30.
