South View's Gilmore named to AP all-state football team
South View High School defensive lineman Greg Gilmore has been named to The Associated Press all-state football team for 2012.
Gilmore, who played in Saturday's Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas and has committed to Louisiana State, was one of four defensive linemen chosen for the squad.
Gilmore is the only player from a Cape Fear region school to make the all-state team. One of the wide receivers, Marquez North, began his prep career at Lumberton High School, then transferred to Mallard Creek.
"It's an honor," Gilmore said. "I've done a lot of work over the years. I do want to thank my team. I can't take it all myself. And my city, Hope Mills.
"It definitely shows what I've accomplished. I've really embraced it. One thing you have to do is be a coachable player to maximize your ability. It means a lot."
Matthews Butler placed four players on the all-state team. Receiver Uriah LeMay, linebackers Peter Kalambayi and Sean Wiggins, and defensive back Channing Stribling represented the Class 4-AA champions on the 28-player squad in results released Monday.
Three other schools had a pair of all-state picks. Davidson Day had quarterback Will Grier and offensive lineman Schuyler Coleman. Charlotte Mallard Creek had receiver Marquez North and tight end Jaylen Samuels. Richmond Senior had offensive lineman Tyrone Crowder and defensive lineman Devant'e Covington.
Raleigh Wakefield receiver Jordan Fieulleteau received 16 of a possible 17 votes from sports writers across the state to lead the team, while Northern Guilford running back T.J. Logan and Tarboro defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis each had 15 votes.
