Another week of high school football is in the books, and y’all, did the Lowcountry ever turn out some incredible performances in Week 5.
It was a struggle to cut the list of nominees down to 10, as a 150-yard receiver, two 100-yard rushers, and a number of defensive standouts failed to make the cut through no fault of their own.
We had an epic defensive struggle at May River High School, where the Sharks had a pass broken up in the end zone on fourth down as Beaufort High escaped with a 9-7 win. And we had a classic Bridge Bowl in which Bluffton edged Hilton Head Island High School 37-34 in double overtime, producing an embarrassment of riches when it comes to offensive stars.
But we can only pick 10 … and you can only pick one. Voting closes at 5 p.m. Wednesday, so spread the word.
