Varsity Basketball Moves to 2-0

Coach Gray and his Varsity Basketball squad moved to 2-0 on the young season with a 64-54 win over Durham Riverside Saturday afternoon at the Southern Durham Invitational.

The Trojans started off slow leading by just two points after the first quarter, 9-7, but opened things up in the second stanza for a 30-24 halftime lead.

However, the game changed when Garner outscored Riverside 17-4 in the third quarter to pull away.

Garner was led by Emmanuel McClain with 14 points. Cameron Redd had 12 and Donald Johnson scored 11 for the Trojans.

The Trojans are back in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Wake Forest-Rolesville for a 7:30 tip.

Trojans Fall to Cougars to End Season


There is an old saying that all good things must come to an end, and unfortunately for the Trojans, the football season came to an end on Friday night as they fell behind early and couldn't come back as Wake Forest-Rolesville defeated Garner 40-21 to advance to the Eastern Regional Finals.

Wake Forest-Rolesville (13-1) took the opening kick off and advanced the ball to midfield and on the first play from scrimmage, Marcus Jones rumbled down the side line for a 7-0 Cougar lead.

That was just the start for the Cougars as they added two more touchdown runs in the first half, another by Jones and James Harris added another as WFR took a 21-0 lead to the locker room.

Starting the third quarter, Garner (11-3) moved the ball down the field, but were forced to punt and after great field position again, WFR slashed the defense on the ground to put up another score and a 27-0 lead.

But, to the credit of the Trojans, they never quit and bounced right back as Lemon Johnson hit AJ Clanton on a screen pass which went for 66-yards and Clanton made several men miss and the first Garner touchdown of the night.

On the ensuing position, the Garner defense held WFR three and out and on the punt, Jake Ward had his kick blocked by Davonte Atkinson and DeAnthony Harris scooped up the loose ball and returned it for the score and all of a sudden it was a game again at 27-13.

After another three and out, Garner got the football back and as the third was winding down, the Trojans went for the half back pass again, but Clanton's pass for Lemond Johnson was under thrown and picked off by Darren Kirby.

That lead to another WFR touchdown and a 34-13 lead. Garner answered back a couple of possessions later as Johnson hit Bryan Watkins, who flipped the ball to Clanton who took it in for another touchdown, but it was too little too late as the Cougars added another late score to defeat the Trojans 40-21.

It was another great season for the Trojans which will has created several special moments and this season will live on in the minds of many Garner supporters for years to come.

A special thank you to all of the 18 seniors who gave it there all in the 2010 season. It was another great season!

Trojans Blast Athens to Open Season


After winning the conference last season and going to the sectional finals, Coach Gray and the Varsity Boys Basketball squad picked up right where they left off last season as they built a 12 point lead in the first quarter and never looked back as they opened up the season with a 78-41 thumping of Athens Drive.

Garner (1-0) were without the services of Gavin Wilson and DeAnthony Harris due to the football season still going on, but it didn't matter to the Trojans as Donald Johnson poured in nine first quarter points while the Garner defense made it tough for the Jaguars on the offensive end and it was 20-8 in favor of the Trojans after the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Athens (0-1) fell deeper in a whole as Garner went to their full court press and caused 16 first half turnovers, as the Jaguars scored just six points in the second stanza.

Offensively, Garner was hitting on all cylinders as they used great play for their senior point guard, Emmanuel McClain, en route to a 37-14 halftime lead.

The second half was more of the same as every player saw action for Garner on Monday night. In the second half, Garner was led by Larry Richardson, Cameron Redd and Dominique Reed. All who poured in great efforts down low for the Trojans.

Overall it was a successful debut for the Trojans as they downed their former conference foe, 78-41.

Garner is back in action on Saturday when they travel to Southern Durham to take on Riverside High School, tip time is set for 2:30.

Varsity Girls Struggle in Season Opener

It was a tough night for Coach Mays and his squad, as they hung tough for the first half and kept fighting in the second half, but Athens was too much as they defeated the Lady Trojans on Monday night, 49-32.

Garner (0-1) did a great job of hanging with the Jaguars, and after the season opening loss they will also be in action Saturday at Southern Durham. Tip is set for 4:00

Big Second Half Sends Garner to Round Three


After falling behind 20-7, Garner went on a mission to come all the way back and defeat Middle Creek 35-20 at Trojan Stadium and advance to the third round of the state playoffs.

Middle Creek (9-4) went up by seven on their first drive of the game. The Mustangs converted on two separate third downs to keep the dive moving and here also helped when quarterback Garrett Leatham rumbled 26 yards to set up Naylann Lopez for 10 yards and the first score of the game, and the only score of the first quarter.

Garner (11-2) came back in the second quarter to knot the game at seven. After a three and out by the defense, Garner got great field position after the punt and they capitalized. On the first play of the drive, Juwan Moye, got the ball on the end around and ran over a man at the one for the first Trojan score of the game.

However, Middle Creek had an answer as on the ensuing drive, the Mustangs got their running game going as they used a lot of Lopez on the ground as he caped the drive with his second score of the night, this one, from 21 yards out. The Mustangs missed the point after and only had a six point lead. That would be the score at the half.

In the second half, Middle Creek got the ball to start the half and promptly converted a third and 15 with a 48-yard pass play which set up another touchdown run and a 20-7 Mustang lead.

After Garner fumbled on the next drive, Middle Creek recovered, but this time they went for it on fourth and one and the Garner defense held giving the Trojans the football at their own 45.

This time Garner used a lot of AJ Clanton as they marched the ball down the field on the Middle Creek defense and finally it was Clanton into the end zone for the score and a 20-14 lead for Middle Creek.

As the third quarter clock wound down, Garner was still only down by three and following a Mustang punt, the Trojans took over on their 21 yard line with just six seconds left in the quarter. Rather than sit on the ball, Garner went to a trick play. Clanton got the pitch from the quarterback and fired a missile to a wide open Moye who took it all the way for the score and after the Connor Torruella extra point, Garner had a 21-20 lead.

After Middle Creek went three and out, again, Garner had great field position and on the first play of the drive, Clanton took it 58-yards for the score and all of a sudden the Trojans had a 28-20 lead.

Late in the fourth quarter, Garner added another score to put the game out of reach as Moye took it around the end for 36 yards and a 35-20 lead that Middle Creek couldn't overcome.

The Trojans will hit the road next Friday as they travel to Wake Forest-Rolesville for the third round of the state playoffs.

Garner's Capital Effort Sends them to Round Two


In week two of the high school football season, Broughton came into Trojan Stadium and defeated the Garner Trojans 21-20, a lot has changed since August 28th and on Friday night Garner showed how much they have improved as they blasted the Capitals 42-9.

Broughton (6-5) got on the board first as Garner gave them a short field. However, the Trojan defense came up big as the Caps had it first in goal from inside the three yard line and had to settle for a 28-yard Hayden Pezzoni field goal and a 3-0 lead.

On the ensuing drive, Garner (10-1) took the ball down the field with a steady diet of the run, and after seven plays, the Trojans had it first and goal from the five yard line. One play later, Tyler Hinton got into the end zone to make it 7-3 Garner, which would be the score after the first quarter.

Garner took their second possession of the second quarter and started from the Broughton 48 yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, AJ Clanton took the ball 47 yards down to the one and two plays later, Hinton scored his second touchdown of the night and the Trojans were up 14-3, a lead they took into the locker room.

The Trojans got the ball to begin the second half and picked up right where they left off in the first half. Facing a third and five, Lemond Johnson found Clanton on a screen pass and the Trojan running back rumbled 65 yards into the end zone and made it 21-3.

Following another Broughton punt, it was the Clanton show again as he took the ball 49 yards to the house and another score for a 28-3 lead heading to the fourth quarter.

It took little time for Garner to score in the final stanza as following a Caps punt, Clanton took it in for pay dirt again, this time from 44 yards out and it was 35-3 Trojans.

After the two teams played the field position game for a couple of series, Garner got on the board again for the final time, this time it was a defensive score as Parrish Crowder tried to fire the home run ball, but it was picked off by Davonte Atkinson who returned the punt 55 yards for the final score of the night.

Broughton scored a late touchdown on a pass to Chris Brickhouse and missed the two-point try as the Trojans went on to win 42-9.

With the win, the Trojans advanced to round two of the State Playoffs where they will host the Middle Creek Mustangs at Trojan Stadium next Friday at 7:30.

Enojoy this great slide show by Coach Jason Boyette to get you set for Friday night!

Garner Blanks Harnett Central to Win Conference Championship


It's been the same story for the Garner Trojans after each win during their current nine game winning streak, scoring early and often and getting great defensive play. That was the way things worked out for Garner as they defeated Harnett Central 42-0 in the second battle of the Trojans.

Garner (9-2, 7-0) got the ball first and ran the ball down the field on the Harnett Central (7-4, 4-3) defense. On the games opening kick off, AJ Clanton returned the ball 47 yards to put Garner in business and four plays later, Juwan Moye scored on a reverse to put the Trojans up 7-0.

After a three and out by Harnett Central, Garner took over at the Central 40 yard line and Garner moved the ball with the run down the field and on the fifth play of the drive, Lemond Johnson hit Bryan Watkins in the end zone for a 10 yard strike at it was 14-0 Garner.

Once again, Central had to punt the ball away and pinned Garner back deep at their own four yard line. That was no problem as Clanton broke free and rumbled 96 yards and a 21-0 lead for Garner.

Again, Harnett Central punted and the Trojans began a long methodical scoring drive that took over seven minutes off the clock and covered 57 yards and on fourth and goal, Johnson snuck in to make it 28-0 in favor of the home team.

After another Central punt, Garner had great field position at the Central 49 and after three runs, Demetrius Fairley scored from five yards out and Garner took a 35-0 lead into the locker room.

At halftime, the Trojans honored the first class of the Garner High School Hall of Fame as Babara Kelly, Hal Stewart, Anthony Barbour, Pat Watkins and Donald Williams were welcomed into the hall.

When the second half began, both sets of Trojans played the field position game. But, very early in the fourth quarter, Garner put their final touchdown on the board as Fairley scored to make it 42-0.

Harnett Central had one shot at the end zone very late in the fourth quarter, but the top ranked Trojan defense stopped Central on four straight plays inside the two yard line to put an exclamation point on the game and the 42 point Garner win.

With the win, the Trojans are out right conference champions and will be the number one seed from the Greater Neuse River Conference when the state playoffs begin next week.

Garner will be at home next Friday night at 7:30 against Broughton in the first round of the state playoffs!

Baseball Parents Need Your Help

The current Baseball Parents are in the process of remodeling the Press Box at the Garner High Baseball Field. Once complete, it will be more than just a press box, it will be a club house/locker room for the varsity players. The plans include creating a GMHS Baseball “Wall of Fame” during the remodel - this is where they need your assistance.

They am looking for facts, photos, and memorabilia concerning past Trojans Baseball Players. Specifically they are interested in the ones that played at the college level and beyond.
It is my desire that trivia from the past along with old jerseys/bats/baseballs/etc will challenge the athletes to play for the team (not themselves) in order to leave a legacy for the organization.
“What will be your legacy?” is the wall’s theme.

If you can help with this endeavor, contact Phil Faucette via email at

Thanks for your help!

East Garner Wins the Garner Bowl

In the second half, East Garner scored on their first drive of the third quarter to go up 28-0 as North Garner couldn't find their offensive rhythm.

Congratulations to both teams on a pair of great season!
