  • I just transfered out of Dinwiddie County High School into Cosby High which is considered "the best high school in the nation" and to be honest Dinwiddie has better game. I think I learned more than I will ever learn here and to be honest DHS is the best two years of my high school life. Its about the people and the mentors. So it may not be the best but its better than a D+. So ha!
