    Interview: Todd Willert - Head Coach & Nique Martin -WR (East Forsyth Football)

    in College & High School

     Interview with Coach Wilert and Nique Martin of East Forsyth HS just ahead of the Semi Final Match up VS Charlotte Mallard Creek HS this Friday at 7:30pm


    By Kegan Lowe Winston-Salem Journal

    KERNERSVILLE — It was billed as one of the most anticipated matchups in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County history — a NCHSAA 4-AA quarterfinal playoff game between two bitter rivals separated only by a short drive down Business 40.

    The result was a one-sided affair that saw No. 1 East Forsyth continue its season-long dominance over the rest of the area and defeat No. 5 West Forsyth, 31-6, in front of a capacity crowd at Clarke-Peterson Field in Kernersville.

    Just a day removed from Thanksgiving, East Forsyth Coach Todd Willert was still counting his blessings.

    Willert registered his 100th career victory at the school with the win over West Forsyth Friday night.

    “I am just so thankful for everyone in our program,” Willert said. “From trainers to coaches to administrators to my athletic director — we took over a program 13 years ago and everybody said we would never win at East Forsyth. And for the guys that have been here with me the whole time, this is the 100th victory and we were never supposed to win.”

    Both offenses started slowly, with the Titans forced to punt on their first three possessions while gaining one first down.

    The Eagles started only marginally better, getting a 22-yard field goal from sophomore Cameron Lischke on their second possession to end the first quarter with a 3-0 lead. East Forsyth is now just two victories away from a NCHSAA 4-AA state championship. The Eagles will host No. 6 Charlotte Mallard Creek next Friday night in the state semifinals   http://www.journalnow.com/sports/prepzone/football/east-forsyth-rolls-in-willert-s-th-win/article_846d70c0-4de5-59d9-a269-c2f66839e157.html

    What Do You Think About These Instructions?

    in Self Help

    FBI University is a school of Faith Based Instructions. Wherein, we extract the wisdom of God from the text of scripture, fashion it into practical principles of instructions, and present them through daily devotionals. Obedience to these instructions turns beliefs into behavior that advances our economical, emotional, and intellectual wellbeing. Now stay tuned as John Marshall teaches you how that by following instructions you coach yourself into the Champion Circle.

    Jesus never sought to change the quality of one’s existence through prayer alone. Jesus sought to change the quality of life by issuing a set of instructions. Even to Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, Jesus gave a set of instructions, “Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:43). Had Lazarus dishonored the instructions, he would have remained dead. His quality of life changed due to his willingness to honor the set of instructions that Jesus issued to him. Prayer is a powerful tool. I continually use that God-authorized empowerment tool. However, do not seek to alter your course in life by prayer alone. God seeks to improve your life by giving you a set of instructions.

    You Don't Have To Be Alone To Feel Lonely

    in Self Help

    In this cyber world, I would say I don't feel connected when I engage in social media. It is not to say, I do not enjoy pictures, animal videos or engaging in a conversation; it just means for me, I never feel a deeper connection. Now, before technology brought us social media, there were a million and one ways to feel lonely--if you were isolated, not necessarily physically, but emotionally, then you more than likely experience a deep loneliness.

    Is there an increase in loneliness, or is it just more evident based on other societal factors, which may have increased our aversion to emotional intimacy (making it easier to keep a distance)?  I mean text messages carry, so much significance don't they?

    Many of us have sky high walls--we think it protects us from pain or the possibility of it in situations, which brought an unhappy end in the past. We don't want it to happen again--so we place distance between us and others, even if we are in a  love relationship with them. Who wants to be vulnerable? We might lose control, we could be disappointed or worse annihilated!  We push others away and it is in opposition to our deepest desires, the physiological need to be seen and heard; to be loved for who we truly are, at our most authentic state of being.

    Join me for this discussion and how to stop your own loneliness right in its tracks! This could be the day you decide to come out and play intimately with others. :)

    Neil Haley Interviews Poet Kat L. Robertson

    in Education

    Kat L. Robertson is the author of published poetry in several anthologies including The International Who’s Who in Poetry, 2004. Her life in the arts began during high school as a member of The Peekskill Drama Workshop in upstate New York, a theatre company founded by her mother. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Community and Educational Theatre from Emerson College in Boston, MA., and worked for many years as a teaching artist in both Philadelphia and New York City with various theatre outreach programs for at-risk youth such as Philadelphia’s Freedom Repertory Theatre; Venture Theatre’s Reality Crew, Stageworks, Camden School of Music and Art, The Village of the Arts and Humanities in West Philadelphia and City Lights Youth Theatre in New York City. As an actress she performed with the Society Hill Playhouse; Stages of Imagination and Theatre Caravan in Philadelphia and in several off off Broadway playhouses in New York. She was also in Local 798 as a professional make-up artist in the Philadelphia and New York film industry for independent films, music videos and commercials throughout the tri-state area. Today she and her life partner live on a sailboat in Savannah and wherever else the wind takes them.

    Brimming with honesty and emotions, Kat L. Robertson’s poems are evocative, meaningful and powerfully moving. Light of Truth is a journey to understanding the meaning of love; examining expressions of love and ultimately embracing love itself. The water colors reflect the mood of the emotions evoked through the poetry.
